Hi, in this review we are going to have a detailed overview about the Vivo V5 Plus. This is the latest selfie smartphone from the Vivo V5 plus with a 20MP camera which has a surprising configuration. Let’s see how it really works.
In terms of design, the smartphone comes with a metal construction which is pretty rounded at the edges than its previous devices. The device looks a lot better. But there are lines on the edges still visible may be part of the design. Like usual, the branding of the Vivo looks quite outstanding. Overall it looks nice, you get a 5.5-inch display. There is a fingerprint scanner on the bottom panel.
On the front top panel, you get the sensors and two cameras which look quite a bit messy. You also get a 3.5mm audio jack at the top and a secondary noise cancellation mic. The device is very thin with a 7.6mm thickness. With the smooth finish, the phone feels slippery. The volume rocker and the power on/off button are located on the right.
On the bottom, it has one speaker. The device again comes with a hybrid sim slot on the left. Moving to the rear facing camera they have a 16Mp camera. The dimensions of the smartphone are 152.6 x 74 x 7.3mm. The weight of the mobile is 158.6grams.

And also supports fingerprint sensor. Moving to the battery this one is having a 3160mAh battery. It comes with fingerprint sensors with 5 fingerprint memory. It has dual sim device with GSM and HSPA support. You can see the viewing angles are good. Installed apps such as Google Duo, Play Store, Google Search, Chrome, Gmail, Maps, YouTube, Drive, Play Music, Play Movies & TV, Photos, Voice Search.
The device runs on Android v6.0 with a Funtouch OS running above. It scored an AnTuTu benchmark score of 63197. The overall performance while playing games is good. But this, not the most powerful but the multitasking is fine but you can find devices with same specifications at 20K and 15K.
It comes with a lot of bloatware mostly useful but you can uninstall if you don’t want. The battery is impressive giving around 1-day backup. The Fun touch OS feels mostly like Apples iOS. The OS is mostly light and offers nimble touch. The fingerprint sensor is accurate.
This has two self-cameras and a LED flash. One is the 20MP camera and an 8MP camera. We will use the second sensor to actually capture the depth information what this means, your self-portraits will have a bouquet effect now. The selfies captured a decent amount of details. You can also use the beauty mode to make your selfies look beautiful.
Even if you are a night owl your front flash gives you better pictures with decent details. The front flash on the Vivo V5 is the best I have seen. The 16Mp rear camera captures much more detailed photographs. The color and the reproduction is better in the HDR mode of the rear camera. Even when the HDR mode is off it gives great details and makes the final image impressive.
The overall camera performance is good. But in the pricing point of view, it is par with the Oppo F1 plus. It is provided with a smart split feature. Where you can split the screen into parts, you can watch a video and chat simultaneously.
Finally, at the end of the day, it will finally blow down to the price tag. This smartphone is available at a price of Rs 27,900 which is currently high. It got a great set of cameras. This is an incredible smartphone which is overpriced.
