The announcement of the new Vivo APEX has attracted a great deal of interest thanks to its extremely innovative design. The device, in fact, comes with an almost completely borderless display, with the exception of a very thin bottom frame (4.3 mm). However, referring to the word “full-screen phone”, JQ Jun (WeChat: leitech) could not help thinking back to the Xiaomi Mi Mix that was released in 2016.
These 2 stunning ” full-screen phones”, although the release time, design, supply chain trends and other aspects are different, but must be recognized as the benchmark for domestic manufacturers. Today JQ Jun (WeChat: leitech) to talk about the difference between these 2 full-screen smartphones.
Let’s talk about this new Vivo APEX’s whole body is the selling point of the concept flagship, revealing a new future that will appear and popularize the trend in mobile phone industry:
1, screen accounted for nearly 100%
In last 2 years, the concept of “full screen” has become very popular in the mobile phone industry. However, markets such as 18: 9 and Curved screen have more practical meaning than merely “full screen.” The future can really meet the concept of a full screen, the screen will be infinitely close to the front 4 corners of the phone’s border design. Vivo APEX screen in addition to the more obvious chin and the other 3 sides can almost be terminated..
2, Hidden front camera and speaker
To make a pure full screen, how to cleverly hide the front camera and speaker, manufacturers often need to consider one of the most important issues. Vivo APEX apply the strategies of Pop-up type selfie camera and sound through the screen , but they are still exposed it in actual cause of some of the problems: Pop up camera in use after a few times there will be loose or malfunction, and the sound of the screen in the call quality Whether to catch up with the traditional handset and other.
It is worth mentioning that the program that makes the screen sound by shaking is not the latest technology. As early as January of this year, JQ Jun once introduced the relevant technology researched by the Redux which is a British company, that prepares the speakerphone to cancel the speakerphone in the future. A similar scenario has appeared on Sony and LG TVs.
3, integrated “non-perforated” body
3.5mm headphone jack, infrared have disappeared on the phone, may indicate that the future of mobile phones may be completely flat. The future of mobile phones,only will not have a clear receiver, front camera, but also may cancel the USB interface, volume rocker, power button, microphone, SIM / TF slot and etc., so that the fuselage into a purely integrated.
Vivo APEX As a flagship Hi-Fi phone, headphone jack certainly can not cut off, and the current technology, blindly remove the USB interface is not realistic. Therefore, the real non-porous phone to be universal, have to wait for a long time.
4, Full screen under the Screen fingerprint
Vivo X20 Plus under-screen fingerprint trend is a good start, but only one area can scan the fingerprint is not enough. In comparison, vivo APEX half-screen fingerprint obviously better. Therefore, in the future, the handset needs to form at least a whole scanning area, such as a half screen or a full screen, in fingerprint scanning instead of fingerprint at only one fixed position.
After talking about the prospective sales point of APEX, let’s look at the differences between it and Mi Mix in the design idea.
1, Speaker and front camera presence
The Xiaomi Mi Mix front camera located in the bottom right corner of the front, support 180 ° flip self. The receiver uses a “cantilever ceramic piezoelectric guided sound” program, through the resonance to the ears of sound, distance sensors are replaced by ultrasonic technology. However, due to too radical Mi Mix user call quality is poor, for if we compare it to Mi Mix 2.
Vivo APEX using the pop up selfie camera that placed on the top, and replace the traditional handset by the screen sound, but also a more bold approach, as the call quality has not experienced before, do not make an evaluation.
2, External Mounted Fingerprint Vs under the screen fingerprint
In 2016 fingerprint will belong to the PPT stage, so Mi Mix reare mounted fingerprint scanner is the most ideal solution for a full screen mobile phone. Although the voice of the fingerprint scanner placed on the side is also good, but due to the structure of the internal components of the fuselage, the side mounted fingerprint is better than to rear mounted fingerprint scanner.
Vivo APEX half-screen fingerprint is stunning, but productivity is a big question mark. To know that the X20 Plus under-screen fingerprint has a fixed location to placing the finger for unlock the phone , So half-screen fingerprint of Vivo APEX is better than to X20.
3, screen accounting
The Xiaomi Mi Mix is the most amazing is the proportion of ultra-high screen, and even Mi Mix 2 are willing to give it a go. At that time, the official screen accounted for 91.3% of the data, but should be joined the black border area, the actual screen accounted for about 84% overall.
The domestic APEX official screen accounted for 98% . From a visual point of view, because there is no need to worry about the front camera, vivo APEX chin is narrow than Mi Mix . However, since these 2 Smartphones do not belong to the same year, then JQ Jun understood as a technology and process improvement.
Although the self-proclaimed full-screen phone, Xiaomi at the press conference directly announced the price, although the pre-market buy very intense hard to buy, there are still some lucky there, JQ Jun colleague Ray threw a private unit. Unfortunately, although interesting, Vivo Apex is currently a new concept only. Not yet known when he will actually be present in the market.
