Since, the release of the NEX mobile phone, Vivo has given me a brand image that I dare to try and dare to create. Boldly hiding the front camera in the mechanical structure under the screen, this approach has led to the birth of the zero-screen full screen. The Vivo just released the NEX that brought a dual screen version.

This is another full-screen expression of Vivo. The front camera is removed, the rear camera is used instead of the self-timer, and a screen is added to the back of the phone for self-timer framing.

Zero-boundary full-screen face

The front of the Vivo NEX is equipped with a 6.39-inch AMOLED screen by a resolution of 2340x1080. Vivo NEX’s body color is different from that of Nubian X. The Vivo NEX is a gradation of the same color on the back and bottom.

As the front camera of the Vivo NEX canceled, the front screen ratio looks quite high, and the visual effect at the moment of lighting the screen is very shocking. The lower frame achieves a very narrow chin with the COF packaging process.

The left border is an integrated volume key and an open key from top to bottom. The bottom border is a SIM card slot from left to right, two SIM cards are not supported, and the memory card is extended. The middle is a Type-C interface. It has a microphone and then a speaker, the left side of the fuselage has a physical button printed with the Vivo logo for the secondary screen lighting operation and others. The top frame is the microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack.

Starring color screen

After talking about the front and the frame of the fuselage, let's talk about the most distinctive back of the Vivo NEX. Unlike Nubian X, the secondary screen of Vivo NEX does not have special hidden processing, and the most attractive place for me is not this sub-screen, but this protruding smiley face starring.

From the left to the right of the back of the phone there are flexible flashing lights, 12 Megapixel main camera + 2 Megapixel depth sensor camera with  TOF3D stereo camera.

The main and sub-lens in the middle are decorated with a round glass which looks like a round face. Compared with the back of the moto Z, the Vivo uses a whole piece of glass, and the edge is made 2.5D. The edge of the arc is processed so that it is not touched by hand.

Vivo NEX uses a 5.49-inch 16:9 screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 on the back. It is not the mainstream 18:9 full-screen size. Most of the results are not fully adapted. The application of Vivo NEX cannot be displayed in full screen on the secondary screen. This is only waiting for the programmers of each family to adapt slowly (distressed Android programmers for a second).

The secondary screen is the biggest highlight of NEX. Vivo wants to create more value on this screen allowing users to use the secondary screen as much as possible. Therefore, the secondary screen is displayed and the mobile phone is reversed.

Passing the mood this function allows you to draw and write on the main screen and send it to the secondary screen in a dynamic way. It seems that there is no useful function. I think the name of the love bean can be written as a KT board at the concert, but only this board may be a little small, and love beans can't be seen at all.

For dual-screen applications, you might think of multi-tasking. You can talk to QQ while you are on Weibo, but every time you have to reverse the screen to practice your wrist.

The game magic box provides the function of reversing the opening of the social application during the game. When you play the game, the information comes in, then you can reverse the information to the back, but if I play the game until the input unless it is the family call me, other messages are blocked by the naked eye.

The starring soft light can not only provide the light fill effect during the self-timer but also receive the message on the mobile phone. When the phone comes, the starring soft light will be reminded in the form of a breathing light, especially when playing music. When the screen is off, the starlight soft light behind it will be very cool with the music.

Voice assistant, it’s your smart butler.

To talk about the camera, I should talk about the system of Funtouch OS. I remember that in the era of Funtouch OS2.0, Vivo is often spat out like IOS. After several generations of updates, Funtouch OS has its own design language and features, convenient. Pull the control center and the intelligent voice assistant Jovi that has to be mentioned.

Although Jovi's debut is a bit late, Vivo’s optimization of Jovi is still not perfect. From the accuracy of voice wake-up and the frequent occurrence of bugs in software and the inability to deep-distribute third-party software, Vivo still has a lot of homework to do.

Jovi is not a mere voice assistant function. She also includes AI functions in the system, AI photos, and smart screen functions.

When I use the smart screen, I found this feature to be very useful when chatting. When a friend sends you a restaurant name, you can quickly identify the restaurant information through Jovi.

However, when browsing web news, it is not very easy to use and cannot provide accurate location information.

Jovi can also generate information aggregation cards through information recognition in software, and send notifications to users when appropriate. For example, advance notices, express notifications, etc. through ticket information, although small in function, you can summarize trivial things in your life. Get up, so we will save a lot of trouble.

Flagship benchmark photography

The 16 Megapixel pixel master camera with the IMX363's CMOS makes the performance of the Vivo NEX remarkable. In the environment where the outdoor is not a sunny day, NEX controls the color very well, and the macro photograph also takes advantage of the large aperture. The details of the object are very clear, and the background blurs naturally. The brightness of the night scene is high, and the color is very attractive.

Vivo NEXis equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 10GB of RAM plus 128GB of ROM. The hardware configuration belongs to the mainstream flagship level, running the king glory and stimulating the battlefield completely without pressure.When I used the secondary screen to stimulate the battlefield, I found the fever of NEX Focused on the screen on the front of the phone.So, the place where the phone is held can clearly feel the heat. Vivo has developed a game box specifically for the game, which can centralize the management of games in your mobile phone, including game duration, individual optimization for the game, and so on.

The battery capacity of 3500mAh seems to be worrying, but in the actual use of the day, it is no problem to use the middle height for one day. With the 22.5W fast charge, you can charge the NEX dual screen version 63% in 30 minutes.
