First it was fever by inches and now it seems that the most popular trend in screens are the curves. Its practical usefulness is rather scarce, but they give a distinguished touch to the design, and if not that is to say Samsung. The South Korean company put them fashionable with that panel dual-edge that premiered with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and today have become a hallmark of the brand. Or not.
Lately we have seen several mobile that opt for this type of screens as Xiaomi Mi Note 2 or more recently the Huawei Mate 9 Pro. The Chinese manufacturer live also contributed their bit earlier this year with live Xplay5 and now they renew this proposal with the Live Xplay6 that, again having a curved panel. But there’s more, we tell you all the details of what’s new in Vivo.
A very careful, but not-too-original design
That in China do not get complicated much life with that of the designs is nothing new, But if we had any questions live clears them with its latest flagship.
From behind, the terminal suspiciously recalls the iPhone, specifically to the iPhone 7 by the placement of the lines of antenna along the edge of the terminal. If we look at its front design inevitably reminiscent of proposals for Samsung, and not only because the display curve, also by the front start button where, of course, has been integrated a fingerprint reader.
Speaking of screen, the live Xplay6 measures 5.46 inches diagonally and develops 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, or what is the same: has resolution QHD. By seeming also it has the usual Super AMOLED technology of computers Samsung, a system that offers more contrast and vivid colors at the time which saves energy. In addition, also integrates function Always On Display with the option to display the time and other data in the curve of the device.
Turning to the part back there is another element that stands out in its design and is double your camera lens. Dual cameras are another very fashionable appearance and live wanted to include this technology in the rear Chamber of his new toy.
The main sensor is a 12-megapixel Sony IMX362, mounted under a f/1.7 lens and approach accompanied by detecting phase and optical stabilizer, while the secondary sensor stays at 5 megapixels. In this case we have a proposal similar to that offered HTC with the M8 One in which the second lens is responsible for capture depth information for create illusion of blurring and other effects. For the front camera has been chosen a 16 Megapixel sensor.
Live Xplay6, specifications
But design is not all that dazzles in the live Xplay6, under his polished chassis houses components of the pointers that take colors over one butt-range, starting with your processor Snapdragon 820, more advanced chip from Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 permit.
The memory does not disappoint and this model integrates 6 GB of RAM with a Fund of 128 GB of storage, more than enough to store all kinds of files. The bad thing is that, like other high-end on the scene, does not allow the expansion with MicroSD memory cards.
In the section of the connections we have 4G connectivity, dual-band WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 minijack for headphones. With respect to the audio note that live Xplay6 also integrates a DAC chip with amplifier. The terminal works with 6.0 Android Marshmallow and the visual layer FunTouch and everything is powered by a wide 4080 mAh battery.

Who said that the mobile Chinese were affordable?
Usually the terminals that arrive from China tend to have very reasonable prices and rare is the occasion that exceed 400 euros, but it is not the case of the live Xplay6. We have seen that his technical profile is located at many top level, so your price rises more than what we are accustomed.
The Xplay6 live is available in China today for a price of 4.498 Yuan, which at current Exchange are 615 euros. As said before, a very high price in comparison to what they offer other brands as Xiaomi, offering the base of my Note 2 model for 379 euros.
