Would you buy a dual-screen phone? (results)
The era of parroting Apple with wide notches is over for Chinese phone makers, it seems, as they moved to waterdrop ones, then slider designs and, last but not least, they are now in the dual-screen phone category, removing the need for a front-facing camera altogether.

There are two phones so far in that last category, the Nubia X and the Vivo NEX Dual Display edition. The Vivo is a successor to the one that sort of pioneered the true "all-screen" field by having a pop-up selfie camera onboard, thus negating the requirement for a thicker top bezel to fit one. In addition to its 6.4" OLED screen at the front, however, Vivo slapped a 5.5" second screen on the back of the phone to look yourself up while taking a selfie with the superior rear camera set.

It's only superior to the front cameras of phones like the S9+, Pixel 3 or iPhone XS in some indoor and low-light conditions, though, as our samples attest yet it is a cool idea nonetheless. 

That is why we asked you last week whether you would buy a dual-screen phone, and over 60% of our respondents are open to the idea, so we wouldn't be surprised if these two pioneering handsets have the inevitable successors, too.

Parroting? Like Apple parrots things like a larger display, wireless charging, ip68, potential pens for their phones, folding patents, etc? You guys are idiots. Everyone copies everyone, and Apple of all people are always behind the curve in technology. So blatantly obvious most of you are fan boys

Oh definitely would if it had the right android skin on it. Not a fan of the Chinese skins and minor tweaking needed to be done.

Vivo's UI is really nice in my opinion, but the default apps suck.

Then change the default apps. It's android after all. I voted yes but the reality is that I own the original NexS and it's superior to this one in almost every aspect especially battery life. I rarely take selfies so the hidden camera is perfect for me. Vivo got it right the first time.

Companies just miss the mark constantly with gimmicks like this, all these tech sheep people will jump on it, but how does this help me in a practical sense as an average smart phone user... I just don't see the need/want.
