Great for selfies
Be careful of
Insufficient internal storage
Vivo has set its foot in the Indian market with their marketing and affordable smartphones. Vivo V5 is specially targeted for the selfie lovers in the country. The phone is packed with camera features and a good set of specifications. So, if you are someone who likes to take a lot of pictures, you should give this one a chance. The Vivo V5 is reasonably priced at INR 15990 in the Indian market.
The Vivo V5 comes with a 5.5-inch LCD display and offers a resolution of 720x1280 pixels. Protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass, the screen is quite responsive to touch. It behaves well under sunlight and the color reproduction is quite good.
What’s under the hood?
The Vivo V5 ships with 4GB of RAM which is massive for a phone belonging to this price range. Powered by a Cortex A53 Processor clocked at 1.5GHz, it runs smoothly without a glitch. One can easily play games and use multiple apps at the same time. For better graphics, it is integrated with Mali-T860 MP2 Graphic Processing Unit.
The device truly justifies the name ‘Selfie Expert’. It’s one of the very few devices to have a better front camera compared to the rear unit. It is equipped with a 20MP front camera accompanied by a LED flash. It takes stunning selfies even in low-light conditions. As far as the rear camera is concerned, it is a 13MP unit that delivers sharp images. It has many interesting features like ISO control, high dynamic range, autofocus, etc.
It is pretty obvious that with such good cameras, you’re going to need a lot of storage. The Vivo V5 takes care of that as well. It comes with 32GB of internal storage which is further expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card.
Apart from the integral 4G connectivity, the Vivo V5 has Bluetooth, GPS, microUSB, mobile hotspot, WiFi, and Dual SIM.
The Vivo V5 sips juice from a 3500mAh battery which is a long runner. It easily runs for couple of hours once its fully charged.
