The Vivo Nex was one of the first few phones to pioneer the completely bezel-less look by moving the front camera into a motorized mechanism that popped out of the top of the phone. Not just did it look fantastic, but it also had serious power on the inside which made it a compelling flagship.
A few months after the launch, you can now get yourself a Vivo Nex for a fraction of the original price, at just Rs. 27,390 from Tata Cliq. Given the design and internals of the Nex, this is an absolute steal. The phone still sells for Rs. 39,990 on Amazon India, so the offer on Tata Cliq gives you a discount of more than Rs. 12,000 which puts the Nex ahead of phones like the OnePlus 6T as you get a better design, the same CPU, same amount of RAM and cameras that are very comparable.
To reiterate, the Vivo Nex sports a 6.59-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2316 pixels and covers the entire front of the phone. The fingerprint scanner is embedded into the display as well and uses Vivo’s second generation in-display fingerprint scanner tech. At the heart of the NEX is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset which is the flagship SoC of 2018, so performance is top notch. To go along with the powerful chipset is 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The phone runs on Vivo’s FunTouch OS based on top of Android 8.1 Oreo.
The cameras on the rear 12MP and 5MP with an aperture of f/1.8 and the front camera which is motorized is rated at 8MP with f/2.0 aperture. The battery is a 4000mAh unit and is accompanied by Vivo’s fast charging solution with an output rating of 22W making it extremely quick. Vivo had just recently reduced the price of NEX to Rs 39,990, but the current deal does look very attractive.
If you are in the market for a phone in the price range of Rs 30,000, pick up the Vivo Nex right away from Tata Cliq before it goes out of stock.
