Vivo V5 is the latest edition of Vivo V-series. This cellphone is known for its selfie expertise, 20MP front facing camera with Moonlight LED Flash. Selfie is now being a social requirement. So, if you are a selfie lover, you must give it a try. But will it be enough for a smartphone worth Rs. 17,980? Let’s take an detail overview on Vivo V5 Reviews.
Design & Display: When you unbox the Vivo V5 and holds your device, the first thing you notice is the design inspired by Apple iPhone 6/6s, especially the back. However the back is made up of plastic, but we did expect metal back at this price. Yet, plastic back offers good grip and elegant design. On the top, the camera and flash, and in the middle Vivo logo carved with chrome lining. On the front side, the home button houses a fingerprint sensor which works really well and can also be used to lock apps. 5.5 inch IPS display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass produces good video quality, but the display is HD not Full HD. However it is not a issue for the most part.
Camera: Coming to the camera, front facing 20MP camera have Sony IMX 376 sensor with 5P lens. It works good on different light conditions, pictures came out with good detailing and natural looking colors. Moonlight Flash help you to click shots even in low light with natural colors. However, the flash lights up your face but not the entire scene. 13MP rear camera of Vivo V5 support PDAF (Phase detection auto focus) with flash. The picture capture by the camera are bright with good detailing, but landscape mode did suffer, lack in sharpness of the image even in the day light.
Performance: Vivo v5 uses MediaTek, octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM, which helps in easy handling of apps with smooth interface of Vivo FunTouch. It’s fingerprint sensor unlocks the phone in just 0.2 seconds. Inbuilt speakers are good enough to enjoy the music. Overall performance is very good and it won’t get heat up even running multiple apps. 3000 mAh battery gives you a one and a half day back-up on regular usage. But it is lack of USB C port for fast charging.
Conclusion: Coming to the conclusion of Vivo V5 overall performance is good and with its key feature, 20 MP front facing camera, but the device fails to give a long lasting impact. The rear camera disappoint you, lack of USB type-C port. Though Vivo V5 have some qualities like good sound quality, excellent battery life. If you are a selfie lover then this phone take pictures to next level. But at the price of Rs. 17,980 there are other better competitors like Oppo F1 and Geonee S6.
