Vivo NEX Dual Display review
Of course, these guys are no strangers, and they enjoy experimenting with things.
When searching for superb devices that are in the mid-range category, we can look for the likes of OnePlus, Oppo and Realme.
But when we talk about Vivo, we can’t but explore their love for experimentation and how committed they are to it. They caught some attention with the “NEX” category of devices – and there is something new to talk about.
The NEX Dual Display is unique and actually new. The manufacturers have been working hard in previous times to bring up superb features. This device is a combination of their pre-existing efforts in creating something unique with more functional mobile design.
The original NEX S and NEX A were seeking to bring up superb cameras. This one came with something even more special! Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) review

This handset comes with the brand’s display fingerprint reader tech. Of course, even though it was unique, vivo is not new to this feature.
Additionally, it appears the manufacturers turned the knob up to 11 while crafting this handset and simply rip it out for most aspects of the phone. So, we might not be wrong for saying it is an experiment. However, some believes the phone won’t end up in many user’s hands – the reasons should be obvious.

Unboxing Vivo NEX
Now, to the device’s retail package and the stuffs you will find inside.
The vivo NEX Dual Display comes in a ‘presentable’ box. Of course, we should first say the packaging is far above average (it’s quite good). But, however, if you are used to seeing some extra radiant packages before, you might look down a bit on this.
But generally, who cares about the beauty of box than the features of the handset itself?
If you are getting the device shipped to you, you have nothing to worry about – as it is with it own cradle.
The manufacturers took the step to include a pair of pleasant earbuds that are with an in-line microphone. We can say it is a nice hands-free unit.
You will also come across a very thick bumper case, color-coded with your unit – blue or red.
Also, vivo placed in the box a wall charger, along with a white USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable.
