I have never ever drained of a bezel-less phone Why do all the tech reviewers except for Marques Brownlee want a bezel Less phone? I had rather have bezels and front-facing speakers a bigger battery and a headphone jack. It is good to see a phone with a no notch though. All they are doing saying their phones our state-of-the- art just to sale more phones and accessories.
This is awesome. But I think the concept phone Apex was better built and had a better UD fingerprint. But I guess Vivo cut down some costs which is also good for the customers. If it was priced around 900$ no one would have said anything. Because this is revolution. Kudos to vivo for the competitive price.👏👏👏
Anyone knows what happens to the front proximity sensor? I can't seem to find an article/video that talks about it. Oh and if this is how the displays of smartphones will look like in the future, I think most companies will have similar looking smartphones, as >90% of the front is the display.
Why aren't more people criticizing the front facing camera? it's ridiculous. If Apple had done that (which they wouldn't) people would rage. Get dirt in that thing and say goodbye to selfies. I'd take my notch over that any day.
already ordered, can't wait to have it, besides the screen, the scan part is also amazing!! by pressing the Jovi, i can have all kinds of infomation in the photo:translation, name of the flower, model of the clothes etc.... and Jovi can be teached....
Vivo is leading by example here irony is that though apple and Samsung have so much resources still they can't manage to do what vivo did it by implementing it in the production devices for consumers hats off to vivo
Patrick Mut I totally agree with you. Apple and Samsung are the top 5 valued companies around the world and Apple being the number one in numbers. iPhone x has a notch but the facial depth scanning system has been incorporated into it. Vivo and Oneplus are the ones that copied recklessly the concept however they forgot the subtle folding of the OLED panel.
Videoscord it's not about resources, more about risk. Vivo can afford a faux pas however Samsung and apple can't. They have to make sure that the product is ready... the reputation they have built over the years will go. Remember the note 7... Never was Samsung fault but it costed them a lot.
Vivo at best will sell about 1 to 5 million units, if the phone is great the company gain brand recognition. And, if it is bad nobody was expecting them to produce an amazing product in the first place.
Phones without front facing camera is maybe better to me cause I dont want shitty camera with small sensors without OIS. I just want a small secondary display on the back where you can use the feature packed rear camera for selfies
I personally like the bezel less implementation from doogee on the doogee mix 4.
The pop-up camera thing on this Vivo looks so flimsy and I don't know if there will be any thirdparty protective case for this device because of that pop-up mechanism .
Based upon smartphone coverage in the gadget-press I'm allowed to care [really deeply] about "notches"; and the Holy Grail of smartphone design is that an entire side of the device be one uninterrupted touchscreen. (Seeing as unintended input has always been a fairly regular occurrence with almost every smartphone I've owned, I fail to see why I should want even more surface-area to touch accidentally. Oh, yes, I forgot: this is the help achieve "immersion" when viewing video content on a ~6" screen. "Immersion"?! Seriously?! Amazing what people can be hive-minded to accept without challenge.)
(Moreover, what I'd *really* prefer are two stereo speakers on the front-face of my phone, but that's not even discussed as a desirable thing despite the fact that it makes a whole lot more sense.)
Those who might want a durable metal build are given no space to complain because phones need to be made of glass to allow for wireless-charging (which is actually just wired-charging with the wire inserted into a dock instead of a few millimeters away into the port of the actual device.) Those who want a Hi-Res DAC are told that if they're so serious about audio, they should carry a dedicated music player, or a portable amp, or both. (But people who consider themselves "serious" about photography aren't told to go get a real camera; it's perfectly rational to think that a smartphone with a tiny 1/3" image sensor can do what my $3500 ILCs with 35mm format sensors cant' do, which is take photos in darkness without use of a tripod.)
People should try to imagine their own reactions only 5 years ago if someone were to have told them about what are today's common smartphone design choices:
"Just a few years from now, phones will be housed entirely in glass!"
"Wait. What?! Why?!"
"Because it will allow us to dump our phones on charging-cradles instead of plugging power cords into them -- saving us a whole 3-to-5 seconds."
"Oh. OK. Reasonable trade-off."
