After a month of use, Li Nan, the former senior Vice President of Meizu Technology and president of the Meizu brand, said the Vivo X Flip smartphone has broken his three prejudices about smaller mobile phones and also blasts the iPhone 13 mini. Li Nan disclosed this in a recent post via his official Weibo account.

Not too long ago, the Chinese mobile brand, Vivo unveiled its latest foldable smartphone – the Vivo X Flip. The device is said to focus on flip phones with fascinating features like a 6.74 screen, 120Hz LTPO OLED panel, with a water drop hinge to both keep the crease minimal and help the phone fold fully closed.

How Vivo X Flip Breaks Li Nan’s Three Prejudices

Enunciating how the device broke his three prejudices, Li Nan said the Vivo X Flip corrected his bias against smallness. As we all know that in the non-folding era, there is a magic number in mobile phone design, which is 8mm. When the thickness of a straight-screen mobile phone is less than 8mm, users will be amazed by its thinness. 

“And when you pick up the vertical folding phone, you will find that the magic thickness is related to the size. When the X Flip is folded up, thickness doesn’t matter anymore, said Li Nan. A small box of slightly smaller dimensions, thanks to advances in flexible screens, rewrites the magic numbers of design.”

Li Nan’s second misconception about the flexible screen’s unreliability and wrinkles was corrected when he opened the Vivo X Flip. Li Nan observed: “It is obvious that the protective materials and hinges of flexible OLED screens have made great progress after continuous improvement and a lot of tests.” 

In today’s mobile industry, opening and shutting and the sensation of utilizing it, surprisingly, come from an original structural design that has nothing to do with dependability. People are put at ease by it. However, he further claimed that after using the Vivo X Flip for a month, his third misconception – that small phones must put up with short battery life was disproved.

“The battery life of X Flip is so long that I looked through its specifications curiously, and found that the battery is above 4000mAh, which is the level of mainstream Android phones with large screens. At the same time, the performance of X Flip is also very smooth, reaching the level of mainstream Android flagships today.”

Vivo X Flip Blasts the iPhone 13 Mini but Younger to Samsung

Coming to the iPhone 13 mini, Li Nan originally believed that a triangle combining high performance, portability, and long battery life was impossibly unachievable. “I didn’t anticipate leaving the mobile phone sector for a while. The triangle was not broken by the folding screen, but it did successfully increase the triangle’s coverage area, he affirmed.”

Nevertheless, distinguishing the device from the iPhone 13 mini Li Nan stated: “Compared with the iPhone 13 mini, it has better performance, a smaller size after folding, and better battery life.

All in all, as we know, no mobile phone is without its shortcomings. In Li Nan’s opinion, the vertically flexible folding screen of the Vivo X Flip is the younger brother of Samsung in terms of innovation; it also falls short of Samsung in terms of high-end design. At the same time, he added finally that the Vivo X Flip is a little too feminine, and men who prefer small mobile phones use it.
