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.

Agreed, not impressed.
This is a Chinese phone for their own market, plus some Asian countries, Russia and India. VIVO phones are not marketed in nor even designed for the USA. Their own website doesn't even list the USA. Most LTE bands that United States Cellular carriers are not supported. Many models will not work on T-Mobile. When then do work, they do so only at older and slower 3G or 2G speeds. On Amazon, the ViVO NEX S is only sold by a couple of third parties sellers at inflated prices. I do not understand why GSMArena keeps reporting on (pushing) this brand.

I appreciate mobile phone designers and manufacturers wanting to have (almost) bezel-less phones, but honestly, it's becoming more and more difficult to use phones without our hands obstructing the view of the screen. It's time we become less addicted to bezel-less phones, and demand for longer battery life and longer OS support.

Guys, opening the Telegram app is causing the front camera to open up..... This is causing people to freak out.
I think this phone will expose far many such vulnerabilities in apps. :D Now, we will probably know when the front camera is being accessed.

The patent holder is apple, who essentially patented a use of (Samsung/LG technology) OLED displays and folding it at the bottom..
It's very easy to accomplish a bezel-less bottom of the phone, but not without patent infringement.
Oppaii, 01 Jul 2018People are getting obsess with very high screen to body ratio even though it's not that necessary.It's not that necessary but it indeed looks gorgeous compare to the old huge top and bottom bezel.
Nothing about call quality? I know this section isn't covered by GSMArena's reviews, but in this case I think it would have been more important.

Okay, so let me get this straight. According to the review: the finger print scanner is not reliable, the size is too big, the OS is pretty bad, the camera is just OK, the price is a bit too high, it does not have NFC nor expandable storage...
Despite all this, it receives a 4.5? This score indicates that the phone is close to perfect, when half of the review contradicts this?
I really don't get it. Is it simply the fact that it has an AMOLED screen and a SD845 enough to push the score above a 4? Is that all these reviewers require out of a phone? Just as an example: Nokia 7 Plus that has a better OS, expandable storage and NFC received a 3.8, even though the review seems generally more positive.
