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.

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.
