vivo V5 review: The Oddball

24 February 2017
Vivo V5 is all about the selfies, and you can tell it right away by a quick inspection on its specs sheet. The V5 surely looks good, but it has a lower-res screen, mediocre chipset, uninspiring main camera, and it didn't even deserve the latest Funtouch launcher. If it wasn't for the high-res selfie snapper, it would have been the definition of mediocrity.

Why its battery capacity is poor than the other smartphones.

I would advice not to buy
vivo V5
1) Its does not support HD calling
2) The battery drain by evening on normal use you have to charge by evening to use the phone on normal mode
3) Internet can't be used via USB cod on computer it doesn't support

What a fake 20 MP camera!!! I can tell you guys here that the 20 MP of this brand means 2 MP of some brand. LOL. You don't need to believe my comment here but you can prove it your self!

D, 25 Feb 2017cant wait to have one...good specs, and has reasonable price..Are you kidding me? With these low-end specs, battery life and that below-average chipset (which can't even support a 1080p screen) the vivo V5 is really over-priced at $270.

BTW it's a wonder Vivo still haven't changed the name of their OS skin. "Funtouch" sounds so lame.

Vivo targeting Indian youths school going boys and girls'.

They are just crazy for selfies...

As they don't know anything about chip GPU etc.

Nobody is interested in this low quality and subpar phone. The high price at which Vivo V5 is available makes me laugh.

In my eyes Vivo V5 Plus and V5 are extraordinarily high priced tools which Vivo uses to wrench their INR 350 crore India's marketing budget from us. I am not falling to this trap.
