It has a has a bezel-less 6.59-inch display that gives you a beautiful full-screen experience. Yup, no notchy business here. So where does the selfie camera go?

The 8-megapixel selfie camera actually lives inside the phone body and pops up when you want to take a selfie.

Though this moving mechanical part may make you uneasy, the mechanism seems sturdy and unlikely to break.

On the flipside, the Nex's AI-powered dual-rear cameras get the job done. The 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel setup allows for portrait mode, but there's no optical zoom.

The dual-camera performance is similar to the Vivo X21, as both phones share the same set up.

Instead of front-facing speakers, the screen is used as a speaker for phone calls. There's also a bottom-firing speaker for regular music and video playback.

The backing is simple, but under certain light has an intriguing holographic color to it.

The Vivo Nex's 4,000mAh battery easily lasted a normal day of use, and performance from its Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor matches other flagship phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus.
