Vivo Nex 3 review-week, Vivo unveiled a new masterpiece of smartphones,
The Vivo NEX 3, in which we are reviewing its full official specifications.
Design and screen
More than cool, perhaps this is the right phrase to describe the new Vivo NEX 3 phone design in which Vivo has gathered all the attractions
that blended to present a fantastic phone in the full sense of the word.
The phone relies on a pioneering aluminum structure in the frame and glass industry in the back
screen called Waterfall Full View Display which has round edges on both sides
very thin edges from the bottom and also from the top
the phone adopts a pop-up camera that comes out from the middle of the phone’s structure,
which is what This resulted in the screen achieving a record proportion of its acquisition of the front area of the phone,
which is approximately 93.6 percent.
Among the great advantages of the Vivo Nex 3 review
It does not depend on any actual buttons,
the phone relies on the edges of the side screen as virtual buttons but it has a slight vibration
that indicates that they are physical buttons,
and Vivo assures that the response of these virtual buttons is not at all different from using the actual buttons,
The phone also does not differ in terms of the magnificence of the design of the back,
which is characterized by a distinct purity,

as the rear camera triple lens is located in the middle in a circular frame similar to the design of the back camera
for the Huawei Mate 30 Pro with a flash backlight in the center,
the phone does not have a fingerprint scanner Actually,
it relies on an integrated optical fingerprint scanner at the bottom of the screen.
The phone has the advantage of retaining the 3.5 mm port that most of the leading phones have abandoned,
most recently the Samsung Galaxy Note10 Plus,
but it does not depend on stereo headsets, while the other ports are the USB Type-C charging and data support port that supports USB OTG.
The Vivo NEX 3 phone is based on a distinctive Super AMOLED screen with a diameter of 6.83 inches,
which is a large diameter that provides a distinct vision space
a great viewing experience especially with no slit, cut or hole in the screen,
while the screen resolution is 2256 x 1080 pixels,
it is supported by HDR10 technology Vivo did not indicate whether
or not the phone’s screen is protected by tempered glass such as Corning Gorilla Glass.
Internal components and battery
Power and splendor is not only related to the Vivo NEX 3 from the outside only, but lies mainly within the phone,
as the Vivo NEX 3 relies on the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor
that has appeared in gaming phones such as Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro and Asus ROG Phone 2 And others, of course,
the phone depends on the modified graphics processor Adreno 640,
and the phone issues a special version that supports the technology of the fifth generation of communications.
The phone issues only one version with a random memory capacity of 8 GB RAM with an internal memory of 128 GB and this for the regular version,
while the 5G version has two versions, the first with the same random memory with an internal memory of 256 GB,
in addition to the giant version with a random memory capacity of 12 GB
and an internal memory capacity of 256 GB The phone relies on all versions on the internal memory class UFS3.0
does not support external memory cards and runs the Android 9 Bay operating system with a fun touch 9.1 user interface.
Features the Vivo NEX 3
The Vivo NEX 3 features a very powerful 450 mAh battery,
which is backed by a 44W ultra-fast charging technology and the same one
that first appeared with the Vivo iQOO Pro, but it does not support wireless charging
How is Vivo Nex 3’s camera ?
The front-facing camera on the Vivo Nex 3 pops up from the top of the phone.
This pop-up camera module is larger than on previous Vivo phones, as it integrates a tiny speaker, as well as a small LED flash.
The LED will serve to add a little light to your self-portraits, but it’s not very strong, so it doesn’t blind you.
The camera pops up smoothly, with a cute robotic noise (you can turn it off).
I noticed gunk accumulating on it, even though I treated the phone with care.
The 16MP selfies are usually good, but backlight can throw the camera off.
Check out this comparison between selfies taken in identical conditions on the Vivo Nex 3 5G and the Mate 30 Pro.
The Vivo got better detail and clarity, but completely flunked exposure.
The rear camera module includes the now-conventional standard, telephoto, and ultra wide lens combination.
I like its versatility. The wide angle is great for capturing landscapes or buildings,
while the 2X telephoto kicks in when you need to get closer.
Dynamic range is great in most situations.
Pictures can turn out a bit too dramatic on occasion due to high contrast, but colors are accurate.
The main issue I noticed was some over-sharpening, even when light wasn’t very low.
What’s good about the Vivo Nex 3 5G?
- Design – This is a big phone that you’ll need to use with two hands.
- Other than that, I really like the Vivo Nex 3 5g’s design and build quality.
- Performance – Smooth, hiccup-free functionality.
- Front-facing camera – It’s just fun.
- Battery – The large capacity and fast charging battery mean you won’t need to stay tied to an outlet much.
- Fingerprint sensor The in-display fingerprint reader seemed faster than the Mate 30 Pro.
- Headphone jack – Yay!
What’s not so good?
- Waterfall display – The glass edges make this phone harder to handle and more fragile than it should be. But the screen is large and beautiful.
- Image quality – No OIS, some over-sharpening, loss of detail, and a few weird selfie issues.
- Software – It’s really not good.
