Vivo Nex 3

Hi all,

I'm quite surprised there is no thread discussing on the Vivo Nex 3, the latest addition to the Vivo family!

https://www.straitstimes.com/tech/sm...ess-smartphone

This phone looks like a winner. With its aesthetically pleasing waterfall display, notch-less screen, 3.5mm earphone jack etc.

However, correct me if I'm wrong, it does not have an optical stabiliser for its photography and videography. Hence the resulting photos in low light conditions, and the videos it take won't be as impressive as compared to Mate 30 Pro?

Any opinion on this phone?

Thanks!

Already using it for more than 1 week. Not a bad phone. Must get used to the display.

Dear bros who got the phone, how's the video quality? I saw on YouTube that it's quite shaky.. How about photography at low light conditions?

Can share what are some pros and cons of this phone with your experience in using it? Thanks!!!

wow...

This review seems to suggest that Nex 3 is more value-for-money than Mate 30 Pro and Iphone 11.

It's in mandarin though.

video quality is just okay. No OIS, and only software stabilisation for 1080p30 and below for rear camera. go to 60fps then no stabilisation. But on the bright side it does have 4k60, which is not available on the Pixel 4. I guess maybe that's why they're bundling the phone with the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 for launch promo during their coming event. haha. No stabilisation for the front camera at all.

https://www.vivo.com/sg/products/nex3

Some of the more obvious cons? no stereo speakers, and because of pop up camera, no IP rating. The less obvious is Funtouch OS. It's an... acquired taste. I think regular consumers will probably be okay with it, but if you're a diehard fan of cleaner versions of Android, this is not for you.

Pros? The phone is actually overall kinda nice to use. Screen looks really nice. Coming from the Pixel 4, I still maintain that I would prefer a brighter screen over a 90Hz refresh rate since I use my phone outdoors a fair amount of time, and the screen is noticeably brighter than the Pixel 4. No complaints on performance (SD855+, UFS 3.0, etc). Battery life is really good (4,500mAh), again, coming from the Pixel 4, this is so nice to have.

headphone jack. and it's powered by AKM AK4377A DAC, which is noticeably better than most regular smartphones (LG being the exception probably). I've seen reviews that says the DAC in the older NEX S is better though. But still, it's better than average, and with a decent pair of earbuds, it's really enjoyable.

bonus for me are the capacitive+pressure sensors buttons. Might not be everyone's cup of tea, but i dig it.

Anyway, already working on a full review and should have it up maybe tomorrow or sat.
