Everytime an important flagship gets released, Zack from the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything performs an endurance test in order to check how resistant it is. He did the same with the new Vivo NEX S, which we can define one of the most innovative smartphones of this year. Zack did three kinds of test: a scratch test, a bend test, and a burn test. And the phone has passed all the tests successfully with an incredible result, showing to be a very solid and resistant device.
Zack confirmed that the handset is made of glass for the backplate and metal for the frame, as the company did not reveal it before. One of the main concerns of people who are deciding to buy this handset is the resistance of its motorized pop-up camera. Well, he tested the pop-up camera of the Vivo NEX S as well and it is incredibly solid. It is made of glass and metal just like the device. In the bend test, it flexed a bit, but the display has not cracked and neither the glass back. From what this torture test is showing, besides focusing on innovation and an outstanding hardware side, Vivo has also been able to release a very sturdy phone with long-lasting aesthetics.
Vivo NEX S rocks a wide 6.59-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2316 x 1080 pixels, no notch and an in-display fingerprint reader based on the chip unveiled by Synaptics in the second half of last year. Its processor is the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 running at a max frequency of 2.8 GHz, paired with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal storage. It boasts a rear dual camera with 12 and 5 MP resolutions, f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures, while the motorized pop-up camera has a resolution of 8 MP and a f/2.0 aperture.
