VIVO NEX 3 5G – Specs and Price- 2020
Just before last years’ world cup, VIVO NEX 3 was born. With almost all phone manufacturers, especially Samsung now having an OLED screen with curved edges as a standard design feature, it was no longer exciting to see this feature in phones until the VIVO NEX 3 5G came out.
The VIVO NEX 3 has what the manufacturer calls “Waterfall Full View Display”. In VIVO NEX 3, the concept of a curved screen was taking to the next level. In VIVO NEX 3, the degree of curvature, the degree of curvature is so extreme that much of the sides of the phone were covered with no room for hardware buttons. The VIVO NEX 3 has a 99.6% screen to body ration. This is a beautiful phone that looks very cool. It is more of a design than functionality. The Vivo is well designed so much so that the display doesn’t get in the way of the experience of the user. It has a fast and mostly reliable fingerprint scanner.
Because the screen wraps around the body, there is no room for physical buttons, so the NEX 3 has none, at least where many expected it to be. Instead of buttons, the phone’s side and touch-sensitive. There are group sections that allow you to find it. It can be used to turn the display on and off or squeeze and hold to bring up the power function. The volumes up and down buttons are denoted by the symbols on the screen. It works like a regular hardware volume button.
Since we are talking about buttons and pots, on the head of NEX 3 are; Microphone, Display switch, Selfie camera, 3.5mm audio jack.
On the bottom; more Microphones, Speaker grille, USB-C port, and a Dual Nano SIM card slot.
The NEX 3 has three Cameras, but what stands out is the 64MP sensor on its main camera. With a large 1/1.71-inch sensor, this is one of the biggest on a smartphone. The results of the night shots are pretty impressive.
The photo also comes with an Ultrawide camera, and a 2x telephoto lens. None of these has optical image stabilization built-in.
The NEX 3 has a pop-up selfie camera which is wider than usual to accommodate the flash.
The NEX 3 comes bundled with a 44W super-fast charger which charges 0-67% in just 30minutes.
