Vivo Apex full review

Vivo introduced its latest offering to the Android world in the MWC. The device, dubbed the Vivo Apex, is still a concept phone but is certainly going to be the future of upcoming mobiles in 2018. As we have experienced over the past couple of years, the new trends in smartphones pretty quickly become the latest norms (remember Mi Mix? The first bezel-less?) and it is just a matter of time that we saw smartphones following the same tech as the Vivo Apex.



#5: Nokia 8110 4G: The matrix phone is back
