Vivo Nex 3S

The new flagship Vivo Nex 3S is not only visually striking, but also has it all: Snapdragon 865, LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 ROM, Waterfall Display, Triple Camera, Pop Up Camera, gigantic battery and Dual 5G Support make the smartphone from the Asian manufacturer one of the best on the market today - in almost every respect. The technical masterpiece is now available at TradingShenzhen at a low price. Order now.

As beautiful as a waterfall

The name of the display could hardly be better chosen. The Waterfall Panel, which Vivo uses in its new flagship, flows around the housing and has a very strong curve. As a result, the mobile phone immediately attracts everyone's attention. A whopping 99.6% of the front consists of display. This is also made possible by the pop-up camera, which only moves out of the elegant metal and glass housing when needed. The back is defined by the triple camera, which is arranged in a round and central position and fits perfectly into the Vivo Nex 3S's successful overall image. An eye opener without question!

Brilliant, high-resolution and simply unusual

When switched off, the display already attracts attention. But when it is switched on, the full elegance of the panel is revealed. Especially since Vivo only uses the best of the best here. The FHD+ standard is offered with a resolution of 2256 x 1080 pixels - an excellent mix of battery life and brilliance. The AMOLED screen offers outstanding colour reproduction and offers HDR 10+ support, which is particularly useful for movies. The panel has a size of 6.89 inches and an aspect ratio of 18.8:9. A real novelty is the operation of the usual haptic buttons on the side of the case. These are digital in the Vivo Nex 3S and can be operated intuitively. The integrated 4D vibration motor provides appropriate feedback. The vibration motor is also used in special mobile games and thus reveals a completely new gaming experience.

Unleash the Beast

The Vivo Nex 3S is currently one of the fastest smartphones on the market. The new Snapdragon 865 Octa Core Processor from Qualcomm makes this possible. With a clock speed of up to 2.84 GHz and supported by the Adreno 650 SoC GPU, the 64-bit CPU promises top performance. Vivo has integrated a special liquid cooling system to ensure that this can be provided even during particularly intensive use. Vivo also sets high end standards for the main memory. A total of 8 GB LPDDR5 RAM is available. The internal memory is also generously dimensioned. Thanks to 256 GB UFS 3.1 ROM, the Vivo Nex 3S can hold a large number of apps, videos, photos and other data.

Making photos and videos at a professional level

Hobby photographers and all those who want to become one are well advised with the Vivo Nex 3S. On the back of the housing, the user will find a powerful triple camera with a 64 megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture. Thanks to pixel binning, this promises the best results in combination with AI support. Especially, as restless hand movements are compensated by the integrated EIS. Panorama shots as well as close-ups, however, are taken by the 13 megapixel ultra-wide angle camera. This has a viewing angle of 120 degrees and can capture objects from a distance of 2.5 cm in pin sharp focus. The camera setup is rounded off by a 13 megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.46 aperture, which enables a 20x digital zoom. What's special about the Vivo Nex 3S is that the images can be saved in lossless RAW format if desired. Even amateur film-makers will find something for themselves. 4k shots are just as possible as slow-motion shots with up to 480 fps at 1080p.

Compact El Dorado for selfie fanatics

Of course also friends of self-photography get their money's worth. The Vivo Nex 3S offers a strong camera on the front. The built-in 16 megapixel sensor has been equipped with an f/2.0 aperture and can also rely on AI support. The camera is only moved out of the housing when needed. This not only leaves a futuristic impression on the viewer, but also allows Vivo to do without a notch. Therefore, the Nex 3S manages to achieve comparatively small dimensions of 167.44 x 76.14 x 9.4 mm despite its large screen. The total weight of 219.5 g is also pleasingly low in view of the equipment.

The demanding all-rounder

And it is exactly this equipment that makes the Vivo Nex 3S a true all-rounder that will satisfy even the most demanding users. An NFC chip for contactless payment is installed as well as a high-quality Hi-Res sound chip. With regard to Internet connection, Vivo only uses high-end standards. The dual SIM slot can manage two 5G connections in conjunction with the powerful SoC. In the local network, high-speed surfing is also possible thanks to the fast 802.11 ac standard. Smartwatches and other gadgets can be connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth 5.1. A 4500 mAh battery is available as power source, which can be recharged with 44 W in record time. A USB-C port as well as a 3.5 mm jack connector are available as interfaces.

Is er Nederlandse taal opgenomen in het menu?


We are not sure, but would say no, because I think, once a customer asked already.

From Konstantin | 2020-09-01 15:24:41

Guten Tag,
Werden die Chinesische App deinstalliert?
Würde gerne mir dieses Smartphone kaufen.


Wir deinstallieren ein paar, doch die meisten können auch später noch von Ihnen deinstalliert oder deaktiviert werden. Alle nicht benötigten Apps, können einfach vom Homescreen genommen werden.

From Tobias | 2020-08-31 15:02:24

Hi zusammen,
ich wollte mir dieses Handy schon seit einer Weile kaufen hab aber immer gezögert aufgrund des relativ hohen Preises. Jetzt ist es bei euch im Angebot und würde dementsprechend gern es jetzt kaufen. Ich weiß das das die Chinese Version ist. Meine Frage wäre, gibt es einen gravierenden Unterschied zwischen der Global und der Chinese Version, bei der man evtl. mit Einbußen rechnen kann ?


Es sind ein paar China apps drauf, Netflix wird nur in HD gehen und Google Pay ist das einzige Google App, das wahrscheinlich nciht geht.

From Schorsch | 2020-08-17 16:32:03

Is this the 5G version? Will it work in Germany and Europe?

Bei der Versandart Global Priority entfallen Import- und Zollkosten, verstanden. Was ist mit Einfuhrumsatzsteuer nach Deutschland? Muss hier noch etwas beachtet werden?


Alle Kosten werden von der Versandfirma in China getragen.

From Jan Hajtman | 2020-06-16 19:21:37

Hi! Is there Czech language included in the menu? Which version is it, Global or European? Does it have a standard OTA update? Thanks


It has OTA, it is the Chinese Version and we don't know if Czech is included, but would say, no.

Best Phone
Hi, Im very happy after few days using phone. Very fast and very great phone. Better of my OnePlus 7 pro. Nice screen and design it's very amazing.The first thing that will make you want this smartphone is surely its screen ... Waterfall screen, the Waterfall ???????????????? You will all notice this monstrous and magnificent screen visually. A flexible screen of 6.89 inches wide and without limits. Hidden buttons and the Pop-up camera give the Nex 3S an ultra-high screen ratio of 99.6%. A completely confusing visual effect .... Too bad the screen is not clocked at 90hz it is the only downside that I blame him because all these direct competitors are calibrated today from 90 to 120hz ...For my part this is more than enough at the moment ... An ultra-high quality 64 million pixel digital camera restores the texture and clarity of your shots. The 64-megapixel high-definition main camera and the ultra-wide pixel sensor deliver clear image quality beyond current...

Vivo Nex 3S Video Reviews 






Are there any customs duties on import?

For customers in Europe, there is no customs charges on smartphones, tablets or smaller gadgets in most countries. However, customers in Europe are required to pay import VAT, which may be charged by the respective country on the ordered item. As a rule, the import VAT (for example, 19% in Germany) is paid by DHL Express / postal service. Should there be complications in customs clearance or if the fee you pay is too high, you can contact us at any time and we will help you with the processing. The import VAT is calculated from the declaration value (purchase price) + shipping costs.

NOTE! We also offer shipping methods where no customs fees and no import VAT are incurred. These include Global Priority. However, these are not available with every order, as these shipping methods are based on the sender’s country and the goods. An option to save costs is Global Priority.

What does shipping in 3-5 Days mean?

Like many other China Shops, we do not have a large stock, due to often price fluctuate in China. "Shipping in 3-5 days" means nothing else than to have the device in stock, or within a maximum of 5 days. It is then packaged and shipped.

How long does it take before the package gets to me?

The shipping process varies and is only conditionally influenced by us or the buyer. At best, between 3-7 days and in the worst case, about 2-3 weeks. The rule is 1-3 days for the order and then 3-4 days for shipping with DHL Express. Of course it can happen that the custom delays it, but for DHL Express, it is usually within 7 days before it gets to you.

Is absence of CE mark a problem during import?

No, the European CE mark, as we know it, is not a "verification" seal, but an administrative symbol which expresses the freedom to market such marked industrial products in the European internal market. If you want to sell the goods as a trader, this sign is important to you. However, if you are a private individual, the CE mark is not important to you and should not hinder importation.

We even guarantee that every device from us comes with the CE mark, if this is not the case, we will refund you the full costs.

Is the device checked before departure?

Yes, we take extra time and check all the features and the hardware. This includes camera, GPS, sensors, display, charging tests as well as an evaluation of external defects. If a new firmware is available for the device, we will install it. In the case of errors, an exchange will be carried out before shipment and a new functional device will be sent to the customer. We guarantee that our customers receive only faultless devices. If you do not agree to these tests, please let us know when ordering. Please keep in mind, however, that under certain circumstances - but in the rarest cases - due to the tests, images can remain on the device.

Will I receive an invoice?

Yes. As soon as you have paid, the invoice will available to you via the customer area. You can download and print them at any time. If there are any problems with customs, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Will my data be treated confidentially when placing an order?

We will treat your data confidentially. All orders are sent via an SSL-encrypted page. All passwords are encrypted in the database. Your data will not be passed on to third parties and will not be used by third parties for advertisement.

Is there a 14-day cancellation period?

Yes we offer a cancellation period, but be aware you have to pay the return costs, which can be quite expansive. We have a lot of reviews from known Youtubers / Blogs, which try to inform you about every product. Please inform yourself about the device before purchase to avoid misunderstandings.

How can I cancel my order?

As long as the package is not shipped and paid for, you can cancel your order at any time. Simply contact us through the contact form on our website. Please enter the order number in the subject line.



Defective Device on arrival, what’s next?

If the device is already defective, please contact us immediately. We test all devices for functionality, but in rare cases it can happen that the goods are damaged during transport. In this case, you will receive a new device free of charge and we will accept the shipping costs for the replacement and return delivery.

How do I proceed when my device is broken?

First, keep calm. Please contact us by e-mail, preferably the customer area in our shop. We will go through the errors, because, often, small software errors can be solved very easily with an update. If it is really a hardware fault, you can then make a warranty claim. You will receive further instructions from us.

In addition to the free shipping of your device to China and the free return, we also offer the possibility to use our repair partner in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or Poland for minor errors. This is much faster and completely free for you during the warranty period.

How long does a warranty or repair case take?

The duration of a repair depends on various factors, including the shipping time to China or the availability of spare parts in Germany with our repair partner.

Repair in Germany: This is possible if the spare parts are quickly available. Once you place a warranty or repair request, send the device to our repair partner and it should be back to you within a week. In the case of a warranty, we will assume the full costs, in the case of a repair order outside the warranty, you will pay less to our repair partner.

Repair in China: Should the fault not be repairable in Germany, the device must be taken to China. Do not worry, we will take shipment to China and back again. In the warranty period the repair is completely free of charge for you, for repairs outside the warranty period, we’ll charge a small fee. Usually, a repair in China takes 3-6 weeks, but don’t worry, you do not have to completely stay without a smartphone. We offer each customer the opportunity to send a loan-unit for the period of repair. This service is also free of charge.

Will I lose the warranty by flashing?

That depends on the update. If it is an official update, you can install it. If you do not know how to do this, you can contact us at any time. However, if you try to install a Custom ROM or root the device (except devices that are already rooted, such as Xiaomi devices), it is very possible that the manufacturer denied the warranty. This must be decided on a case-by-case basis.



Other shops have the device with Multilanguage, why don’t you?

Many other shops use Custom ROMs and can also offer German and other languages on the devices. The problem with such ROMs is that you can no longer update and it can often happen that there are Trojans, Spam Ware or viruses on it. We avoid this by using only the official ROMs, even if that means that we can only offer a device with English / Chinese.

Many customers come to us and ask us if we can flash their devices, where we unfortunately have to reject. The Custom ROMs have been installed by detours and often prevent a normal update or flash.

Does the device have a manual?

Most Chinese manufacturers only provide a Chinese short guide, but even renowned manufacturers such as Motorola or Apple do not have complete instructions nowadays. It is generally assumed that you can explore the system yourself, With MIUI or emotion UI you can easily find your way, because both Android manual are quite self-explanatory.

What are dual SIM smartphones?

Dual SIM means that you can insert two SIM cards into a mobile phone. You can use two SIM cards, also from different providers. Thus, for example, you can combine a low-cost data tariff and a low-cost telephone tariff, or use foreign cards if necessary.

Do the smartphones work in Europe without problems?

All smartphones and tablets, which offer mobile Internet and telephone calls, work in Germany & Co. without problems. We also offer only devices that work without problems in the European countries and the rest of the world. Although there are China Mobile versions, these are not offered by us.

What about updates with China Smartphones?

This is mostly due to the popularity and size of the manufacturer. Meizu or Xiaomi device regularly get an update than a completely new and small manufacturer. In our product selection, we ensure that we only offer high-quality devices that are regularly updated with updates. Xiaomi devices often get weekly updates and can quickly adapt the latest Android version. Also Meizu, Huawei, OnePlus, Realme or Oppo and Vivo offer the latest updates very quickly.

These can then be installed via OTA (Over The Air), or must be downloaded and then installed with the Updater app.

How good is the quality of China Smartphones / Tablets / Gadgets?

This is very different. We have set our goal to only offer high quality devices. We want to avoid mistakes that frustrate customers. China technology has improved considerably over the last few years and heard, as can be seen from the example of Xiaomi, to the best of what is currently available.

Trojans or Spam Ware on Xiaomi devices?

NO, definitely not with us. We pay close attention to the quality of the devices offered by us. With us, each device is checked for errors and installed with the new and current official ROMS. We use the latest official Xiaomi ROMS or Xiaomi.eu ROMS. There are no Trojans, viruses or other malicious software on it.

Many other shops use Custom ROMs and can also offer German and other languages on the devices. The problem with such ROMs is that you can no longer update and it can often happen that there are Trojans, Spam Ware or viruses on it. We avoid this by using only the official ROMs, even if it means that we can only offer a device with English / Chinese.

As also mentioned in the ComputerBild article here, we are called one of the few trustworthy shops.
