Event: Vivo NEX 3 Roadshow #FutureBeyondEdges

Saturday, November 9th, 2019

I popped down to the Vivo #FutureBeyondEdges roadshow at Bedok Mall today and tried out the exciting new flagship smartphone – NEX 3 – that was launched in Singapore last week.

Mediacorp Artiste Elvin Ng with Liu Hong Bin, CEO of Vivo Singapore and the new Vivo Nex 3 flagship smartphone (S$1,299) at the #FutureBeyondEdges roadshow at Bedok Mall.

Mediacorp Artiste Elvin Ng with Liu Hong Bin, CEO of Vivo Singapore and the new Vivo Nex 3 flagship smartphone (S$1,299) at the #FutureBeyondEdges roadshow at Bedok Mall.

Based on first impressions, I like the “no edges – no buttons” design of the premium phone.

The 6.89-inch POLED Waterfall Fullview Display (1080 x 2256 FHD+) extends over the curved edges on both sides and offers an immersive visual experience with the high 99.6% screen-to-body ratio.

All around the edges, there’re no buttons at all, except for the diminutive power button which is so flushed with the side that it’s hardly noticeable.

The volume up/down “buttons” on either side of the power button are totally invisible because they use embedded sensors.

The fingerprint sensor is in-display on the front, so you don’t see any fingerprint sensor at the rear.

There is also face-unlock should the fingerprint authentication fail three times.

The triple rear cameras come with a 64-megapixel main camera, as well as a 13MP wide-angle camera and 13MP telescopic camera that takes pretty impressive macro photos.

The OPPO Reno2 (S$899) comes in Luminous Black and Sunset Pink with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

Editor’s Comments

The mid-range phones bring enhancements to OPPO’s Reno series phones in improved Wi-Fi connectivity, photography and video recording.

An interesting feature I tried is the real-time video bokeh where the background is blurred. It’s the video equivalent of the portrait mode in smartphone still photography.

The more affordable OPPO Reno2 Z (S$599) comes in Luminous Black and Sky White with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

The OPPO Enco Q1 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones (S$179) in Midnight Black and Sunny Orange will be available from 26 October 2019 at OPPO concept store and OPPO official online store on Lazada, Qoo10 and Shopee.

Apart from greater effectiveness in cleaning floor surfaces, Karcher is putting the spotlight on being health conscious and environmentally friendly.

Karcher’s steam cleaning technology used in the SC3 means that no detergent is needed for mopping floors.

This reduces the generation of single-use plastic containers typically used to contain floor-cleaning detergents.

Users will also avoid coming into contact with potential irritants and allergents from the chemicals used in the cleaning detergents.
