Our thoughts

Solely relying on the spec sheet, the Vivo NEX 3 is knocking on Samsung Galaxy Note10+ door.

It has flagship performance, features, and design at a significantly lower price. However, you can still see where the additional money goes with the Note10+ with some quality-of-life improving features.


The better display, HDR10+, Samsung DEX, S Pen, IP68 certification, numerous charging solutions, as well as camera technology warrants that.

For us, both great choices in terms of flagship devices.


But of course, a real-life test is needed to determine the real winner.
