Last year, the Vivo Nex smartphone was the first to receive a traveling module with a front camera. Since then, this solution has already spread quite widely and even reached fairly inexpensive smartphones.
And so the company introduced the Vivo Nex 3, and this unit again became the first in the world. This time – the first in the world with a "waterfall screen." That is how someone’s feed began to call screens that are very much bent to the side faces. Remember Samsung Galaxy Note Edge? What did not go several years ago will now become a feature of many flagships. The same Huawei Mate 30 Pro will get a similar screen, only it will crawl even more strongly to the side faces.
So, Vivo Nex 3 is still one of a kind. On live photos and videos, it is clearly visible that due to such a constructive solution, the side frames are visually completely absent if you look at the device from a normal angle. But is it worth it? After all, the risks of damaging the screen are higher, with false clicks, the question is still (although journalists say that everything is fine), and it is generally unclear what practical sense is in such a solution.
And yes, if you are a fan of physical buttons, such a smartphone will definitely not suit you. Instead of the usual side keys, there are touch buttons. There is a physical power button on top, but it duplicates the touch on the usual place. Still, Vivo decided to play it safe. However, given the size and location of this button, it is unlikely to be more convenient to use than the touch one.
The smartphone’s screen is huge – 6.89 inches, resolution – Full HD +. The heart is the SoC Snapdragon 855 Plus, there are also 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of flash memory. There is a charge of 44 watts and a battery of 4500 mAh.
Returning to the display, those same side touch keys (Touch Sense) have vibration feedback thanks to the X-Axis Haptic technology, so maybe it feels like it's not so bad.
The camera is triple. At the head is the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 64MP sensor. There are also a couple of 13-megapixel modules (shirik and telephoto). The front camera here is 16 megapixels.
With prices, everything is quite expected. The device starts with 705 bucks for a device with 8/128 GB and 4G. Next comes the version with 5G and 8/256 GB of memory for $ 810, but the top-end with 256 GB of flash memory will cost $ 875.
