Creative And Handy Design
The Vivo X21 has a lot of similarities when compared to iPhone X. The bezel-less screen display with top-notch feels like the exact replica. Also, the notch houses front-camera along with multiple sensors. The rear camera is stacked at the back to one side and a flash just below it. The screen is accompanied by a fingerprint sensor which is really noteworthy making it India’s first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone is really slim with a thickness of 7.37mm. Though the phone is exactly slim it has space for USB-Charging port and 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom of the phone. We are delighted that the company has not removed the headphone jack.
