The Vivo V5 ticket to instant fame is its 20MP selfie camera. Vivo has used a fairly large 1/2.8-inch sensor, wide f/2.0 aperture optics, a 'Moonlight' fill flash along with some added software tricks to make this a compelling smartphone for all selfie lovers.
On the hardware side of things, the handset is pretty much at par with smartphones strictly catering to offline market but falls way short of lucrative online offerings like the Lenovo Z2 Plus that are available in the same price range.
Vivo V5 is a slim and attractive metal unibody phone. To start with, there is a 5.5-inch display with 720p HD resolution, powered by MediaTek's MT6750 octa-core chip aided by 4GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage.
Right below the display, you will find a home button that integrates a fingerprint reader. Other notable features include a 13MP rear camera with PDAF and LED Flash, 3.5mm audio jack, AK4376 HiFi audio chip, 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, GLONASS, USB OTG and 3000mAh battery.
The handset will be available at all major offline stores in India. Vivo V5 Price online in India is 17,980 INR, which feels a bit steep.read more →
