GREAT AS A SELFIE CAMERA // HONEST REVIEW //READ MY REVIEW BEFORE YOU BUY
NOTE: Please be aware of paid reviews below this product. Most of the 5 star reviews below are paid or fake. Also the pictures attached below the 5 star review of "Zain Ashraf " are copied from various review sites online. So I don't think that guy have even used the device before giving his review.
Vivo launched this phone a couple of months back .First of ,this phone is made for selfie lovers because of the high resolution 20MP front camera ,Not only that ,the camera sensor unit is really good.Other than that pretty much everything is below average for the price tag.Because if you look at the competition ,smartphones like Moto G4 plus ,ZUK z2 plus etc are offering much better for even lesser price.
Well the chipset here is MediaTek MT6750 (AND NOT 6770 as stated by amazon) which is a low end unit and and is not meant for heavy users .The same processor is found in Meizu m3 ,Doogee Y6 and Huawei Enjoy 6 ,which are selling for half the price of Vivo V5 .4GB ram is good ,even though its just a ddr3 unit ,it will get the job done.
The display here is 5.5 inch 720p LCD one ,which is kind of ok for basic usage ,But surely not worth buying for 17k .Come on guys ,a basic display for 17k?
Front camera is 20MP with sony sensor which is just fabulous as a selfie camera ,not the fastest but the sharpest.Back camera is a 13mp unit with a below average sensor unit which is not suitable for low light or indoor shots.
Battery here is 3000mah and will give you a 5-6 hours of on screen time . Which means you can use it for a whole day without charging (on normal usage).
Design is very attractive ,and the build quality is great. Surely a very well built device.
Go for this smartphone if selfies are your highest priority. Otherwise for even lesser price you are getting Moto G4 plus which comes with better performance and A better back camera .Also an above average selfie camera unit.
That doesn't mean vivo v5 is unusable as a 2017 smartphone .You can use it for day to day tasks ,slight gaming ,selfies and pretty much everything that other phones can do. I am just saying that ,its not worth for 17k.
But the story is different in offline market ,I mean the people who prefer to shop in physical stores. Well in that case ,you may not find much devices like VIVO v5 ,below 18k.
I hope my review helps making your purchase decision.
