Design

Vivo X21

These Chinese companies knows exactly what they are doing, the Vivo X21 looks exactly like the Oppo R15 from afar. However, the body was made from Aluminum Alloy and polished to perfection. The dual rear camera at the top left corner is in a vertical position with the dual-LED flash coming underneath, which is totally different from the R15.

Nonetheless, the rear fingerprint scanner and Vivo logo is at the usual position. When you turn over to the sides, it measures 7.4 mm in thickness, making it easy to hold and operate. Overall, it weighs just 156.2g and available in Aurora White, Ruby Red and Black colors only.
