Founded in 2009, Vivo has slowly, but steadily, cemented its position in the Indian market. The China-based company has made deep inroads in the offline market and is now reaping results of its patient endeavors over the last couple of years. We face a variety of questions regarding the phones that are offered by Vivo, right from the build and performance to camera quality and design.
So, we decided to compile a list of best Vivo phones available in India over a range of prices that you might want to take a look at, i.e. if you are set on buying one from Vivo:
Vivo V5 Plus
The Vivo V5 Plus (first impression) is a completely selfie-centric phone. On the front, it features a rather uncommon dual camera setup which comes with, as Vivo puts it, ‘Softlight’ flash. Having a 20MP primary sensor accompanied by an 8MP secondary sensor to sense the depth of field, the phone flaunts a sleek metal unibody design. While some may argue that it is a bit overpriced at approx. Rs. 27,980, it is a premium phone sure to find takers, especially in the offline segment of the market.
Vivo V3 Max
The V3 Max’s (review) strong point is its performance. The phone features a 3,000mAh battery which also has provisions for fast charging, and was one of the first in the country to offer a Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor. The phone is blazing fast and quite apt for heavy users. All in all, at a price of around Rs. 19,395, it is a steal.
A slightly lighter variant of the V5 Plus, the Vivo V5 (review) boasts of being a ‘Selfie Expert’ and tries to live up to its billing by offering a 20Mp front camera that has a Sony IMX376 1/2.78″ sensor as well as a wide angle lens with f/2.0 aperture.
This, along with other features that include a 3,000mAH battery and an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 Chipset paired with 4GB RAM that make it a top contender as far as the mid-range selfie-centric smartphones are concerned.

The Vivo V5S is more or less the same phone as its predecessor barring some cosmetic changes in design. The two major difference between the V5S and its younger sibling is the U shape antenna bands and 64GB internal storage. Vivo has also made some changes at the software level with its FunTouch OS 2.6. The V5s software now lets you clone apps and comes with pre-installed IPL team for cricket fanatics.
