And yet there is something left from the never-ending smartphone market users! Vivo on Tuesday announced to launch Vivo V5, a phone for the selfie-obsessed generation. The phone will be on sale from 26th November 2016 and will be available on a pre-order across 22 cities in India. Along with this masterpiece, Vivo also unveiled its successor Vivo V5 Plus and may launch this variant in coming days. Vivo V5 is priced at 17,980 and is available in Crown Gold and Grey Color variant.
Build and Design
It has gained an upper edge in this field, as it could not have been much promising. The phone is light weighted and barely weighs around 154 grams because of faux metal chassis and is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.
Talking about the display, Vivo V5 has 5.5 inch IPS display and comes with a front home button fingerprint sensor along with a backlit display for navigation keys.
To boost the phone for a lightning and thunderous performance(as claimed by Vivo), it is powered with MediaTek MT6750 1.5 GHz Octa Core Processor. At this price, a RAM of 4GB is fairly decent and offers 32 GB internal storage and expandable storage up to 128 GB. For better call quality, VOLTE support is also provided. Vivo V5 supports Andriod 6.0.1 and this was unexpected.
And yes, that’s the reason to go for it, without even having a second opinion as Vivo V5 has a front facing the 20MP camera with Sony IMX376 and a moonlight front flash to further illuminate the beauty. Also, the front camera lets you record full HD 1080p videos. The rear camera could have been better, yet 13MP is fairly decent.
The Vivo V5 is fitted with non-removable 300 mAh battery and comes with a hybrid slot to support sim card as well as micro SD card in the second slot. Sensors are also provided and Vivo V5 comes with a compass, proximity sensor, and accelerometer. Vivo V5 supports 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi standard.
Vivo is emerging as a giant in the Indian market as well since it’s establishment in China it has carved a niche for itself and now in India targeting low budget phone market. Though the phone may be a good choice compared to its near rival Oppo F1, but it would have been a gem actually, with a metal body and a slightly improved rear camera.
Overall, Vivo V5 is a good pick for camera eccentric generation and is targeting mid-income group this time, yet it may take some time for Vivo to gain a market grip.
