Vivo Nex 3 Rules Antutu With Recordbreaking Score

Yesterday vivo made the NEX 3 official, and while this phone's screen is probably what will get the most attention with its crazy curvature angle, it's also a beast when it comes to performance. That's because of the Snapdragon 855+ chipset it uses, of course, but we're also thinking vivo is using some secret sauce - maybe it's the hyped up vapor chamber that helps with cooling a lot. We say that because when we ran the AnTuTu benchmark on it, we got the best result ever - slightly topping the Asus ROG Phone II as you can see in the handy table below. The unit we used was the NEX 3 5G with...

Ahead of the official Mate 30-series launch date, Huawei posted several teaser videos on Weibo hinting at some of the features the duo will have. The first video posted is about the side control buttons that might end up being pressure-sensitive virtual buttons instead of the old-fashioned hardware keys. Perhaps just like vivo's NEX 3, Huawei is facing the same design challenges that come with the curved Waterfall screen. The next video suggests that the phone will support air gestures - probably something similar to the Pixel 4 gestures. We assume the upgraded hardware for facial...
