Nowadays, high-end smartphones are pretty much used as substitutes for digital cameras and the photography features can make or break the sale of a flagship phone.
We tested Vivo’s latest flagship phone, the VIVO NEX 3, over a month period. Read our full review here.
To test out the camera features, we brought the phone along for different events and occasions ranging from a Boyz II Men concert to restaurants tastings to an open-top bus tour of Orchard Road by night to a day-out on board Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas cruise ship.
The results are pretty stunning. Here is a compilation of some of our shots.

The Science Behind the Photography
The rear camera system for the Vivo Nex 3 consists of a main, 64-megapixel sensor, paired with a 13-megapixel telephoto and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide sensor to give you the best macro, telephoto and wide-angle shots. That’s the equivalent of three different kind of changeable lens that goes with a full DSLR camera kit, all tucked into a pocket-size piece of equipment. Neat.
I am not a big fan of selfies, but if you are into it, the features are pretty awesome too. The front-facing pop-up selfie camera has a 16-megapixel sensor and LED flash. For those who may be worried about the response time of the pop-up camera, we tested it multiple times and it is seamless.
