Get up to 2 years Warranty

Before talking about the phone, I would like for you to go down memory lane to a while back earlier this year when Vivo unveiled its Vivo Apex concept phone that offers an all screen experience. Vivo has made good on their promise with the release of the smartphone, although, with a chin at the bottom. The smartphone comes with innovative technology and is available in two variants namely the Vivo Nex S and Nex A. The Vivo Nex S being the more premium version but with more or less the same outlook as the other model.

Design and Display

Vivo has made this smartphone in a way that makes you think both in but premium when you set your eyes on it. Boasting of a glass bodywork and well rounded corners sitting well in your hands when grasped. The smartphone is quite a big one but this is hardly a problem, except you have an exceptionally small hand due to its modern aspect ratio.

There is also the pop-up camera, underscreen fingerprint sensor and a Screen Soundcasting tech I place of the earpiece speaker. All if this to  All of this to achieve the bezel-free display that separates the smartphone from the competition. The smartphone has a massive 6.59-inch screen and a 1080 x 2316 pixels resolution. This is rather a not to great resolution giving the size and flagship status but it compensates for that with the AMOLED screen type.

Battery and Camera

The Vivo Nex S does well for itself in the battery department with quite a buoyant capacity. However, it does have a large display which does consume power powering up and might take a toll on the longevity. That said, the smartphone has a 4, 000mAh battery beneath the glass rear but does not support wireless charge. On the other hand, the also support fast charge which is quite swift.

One of the novelty of the smartphone lies in its front camera popping out from the smartphone whenever you switch to take a selfie and retracts after you are done. On the rear side, there is a dual rear camera set up which is aligned vertically at the top left. These sensors include a 12MP and 5MP lens while the pop selfie 8MP camera is well enough for the flagship.

Hardware and Software

This is where the main difference between the Vivo Nex S and Nex A comes in. The Vivo Nex S has the premium grade Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 and Adreno 639 GPU for handling the graphics. While the Vivo Nex A has a less premium eight core Qualcomm SDM710 Snapdragon 710 with Adreno 616 GPU.

The rest of the details include 8GB of RAM for the Nex S and 6GB RAM for the Nex A each coming with a 256GB of follow-come storage space. They are not expandable and has its own designated AI called Jovi which will likely only be working in China. There’s the latest Android 8.1 Oreo running on the smartphone.
