It's the modern version of the original Galaxy S. The back of the phone is similar with that texture and camera placement.

Thinking if sweat or some water goes through it could be death. Just hope its exaggeration! Anyone can comment on their experience?
Had the vivo nex s awhile now and an very happy with it. Battery life's been great, the charging speed is snappy, I actually like their skin in Android even.
It's a pity thou I haven't yet found a way to change the dedicated physical button to open Google assistant rather then Jovi yet.
There is one big issue I need resolved thou.... Google safety reports a cts profile mismatch even thou my phone's completely stock.
I haven't tried magisk yet thou since the problem is with stock so I'm not sure it can channge whatever is at fault.
Haven't gotten around to translating the fastboot Chinese menus to check bootloader is locked yet. When I do a safety and root check it does list the bootloader as unknown... Anybody had similar issue and know of a fix? I really need to be able to use banking apps + pretty sure it's why pubg won't install either...
Bought it a week ago, everything is excellent even the finger print scanner quite fast not as described in the review everywhere, performance is superb except the earpiece which is not a real speaker. The sound quality is mostly distorted and you can hardly understand what the other party speaking. I use Bluetooth most of the time but a sincere advice if you are not going to use a Bluetooth or wired headphone you will be very disappointed.
ZeroX, 31 Jul 2018ROG phone is the best ,-Can't be the best yet if they are not available on the market. You fail.
It is very amazing phone....and they have lots of new technologies....like screen causting tech,in display fingerprint,elevating front popup camera,in camera they have dual pixel tech....s amoled display....really nice and flagship mdl.snapdragon 845 very gud performance.compare to oppo find x it is passed in durability test...oppo find x was not that much stronger...price is also very reasonable in vivo nex....
If the NEX S would has a bitte apple on the back, people would say "Oh, Lord Apple!". But is a chinese brand and people are complaining about is hasn't water resistance and dust certification (is obviuos the reason why not) and the mechanism maybe broke in the near future.
Will this be the OnePlus 6T? Judging from the past, I'd say it's likely!
Pretty Anonymous, 02 Jul 2018Okay, so let me get this straight. According to the review: the finger print scanner is not re... moreI agree...I understand there may be different reviewers than most (considering the obvious spelling errors in this one compared to others) but GSMArena should make an outline that scores the phones a little more or less the same across the board no matter who is reviewing it so that it achieves consistency. Otherwise, I don't really trust this review. This should be a 3-star phone at least with the negatives on the cameras, lack of SD card, lack of stereo speaker, and terrible fingerprint reader.

David Elliott Lewis, 04 Jul 2018This is a Chinese phone for their own market, plus some Asian countries, Russia and India. V... moreThe whole world is not US. Why you so against it? Asia is a big market enough to make money for Vivo. Also, NEX A is more widely available than NEX S if that is your complain. This phone is one of a kind so its only logical to keep pushing it to let more people know this kind of phone exist. But no one is pushing you to buy it so dont need to be so annoyed about it.
