Vivo's X21 has a cool underscreen fingerprint sensor

 

The X21's most novel feature is a little disappointing.

The Vivo X21's slim, thin design stands out, while its long battery life will easily last you a whole day. The camera is capable of taking pretty good pictures, too.

The iOS-like copycat design is horrible to use, and the phone's underscreen fingerprint sensor takes longer to unlock your phone than a physical sensor.

The Vivo X21's cool underscreen fingerprint reader offers a glimpse into what a future phone can be, but it's not compelling enough to buy for the tech alone.

Vivo X21 Review: Setting a Roadmap for Future Smartphones

 

Vivo X21 features the first working in-display fingerprint scanner. The smartphone sports a dual-lens camera setup at back and is powered by Snapdragon 660 CPU paired with 6GB RAM.

Futuristic under-the-display biometric scanner ; Premium glass design ; Crisp 6.23-inch screen ; Good camera performance ; Snappy face unlock ; Quick charge is fast ; Good audio performance

No water-dust resistivity ; In-display fingerprint scanner needs refinements ; Dated microUSB 2.0 port

Vivo has largely focused on selfie-centric smartphones with mid-range specifications that cater to the offline market. I was expecting Vivo to unveil further advancements in front-facing camera with a good use of Artificial Intelligence; however, Vivo...

Vivo X21 review: An innovative smartphone that loses out to the OnePlus 6

 

The Vivo X21 solely loses out to the mighty OnePlus 6 because of bad pricing.

Gets you a cool new in-display fingerprint reader, great battery life, audio quality packaged in a gorgeous body.

That in-display fingerprint reader needs some work and so does the pricing.

The Vivo X21 is a great-looking smartphone and it offers something new with an in-display fingerprint reader. And while the notch-friendly design does give you more phone and less bezel, bad software optimisation does not make for the best user...

vivo X21 smartphone review: Stumbling out of the gate

 

The in-display fingerprint sensor scores vivo a world-first, and the tech is decent, but once again, this Chinese brand trips up on price point. Find out just how well the vivo x21 fares and can its unique selling point make a case for itself.

Good build quality and great in-hand feel;Smooth performance;Bright AMOLED display

micro-USB port on a 2018 phone;No NFC;In-display fingerprint sensor unreliable;Funtouch OS looks dated; doesn’t make the most of Android Oreo’s features;Poor speaker quality;Camera is disappointing in poor light;Battery life could be improved

Vivo X21 review

 

Is this real or science fiction?

First smartphone ever with in-display fingerprint sensor ; Bright and vibrant display ; Best of Android and iOS ; Quick and smooth processing

USB 2.0 ; Heavily skinned with tons of bloatware ; Not consistent with face unlock features ; Price ; Snapdragon 660 processor at that price

Polished software and bragging rights make this Vivo a worthy buy
