A General Review of Vivo NEX

Among all the upgrades of phone products in 2018, Vivo stands out with its unique moving camera which was inserted in the body of phone instead of covering on the surface. According to the data, this camera is able to physically rise up from inside the phone smoothly and quickly within half a second. Creative as it is, some cons also accompany with it.

 Some people begin to doubt the durability of the mechanism as the phones are easy to drop from hand while photographing. Also, the more the camera moves, the more fragile it will be.
