Like other Vivo phones, the front camera is the most important feature of this handset. This time the company has offered a dual camera system for those who like selfies. Before the official launch, let us tell you that we spent some time with this handset. Let us tell you how we liked the Vivo V5 Plus at first glance.
Vivo V5 Plus Design & Display
Once you take the Vivo V5 Plus in your hands, you will realize that it is inspired by the design of the iPhone 7. However, it is not bad. Overall the build quality of the Vivo V5 Plus is good, and it feels like premium. Due to the thin frame, there is no problem in using it with one hand. The dimensions of the smartphone are 152.8×74.00×7.26 millimeters and weighs 158.6 grams.
The main camera of the Vivo V5 Plus is located on the upper left side of the back. The power and volume buttons are on the right. The Vivo V5 Plus has a home button fingerprint sensor. In the time we spent with the handset, we found that the sensor gave the correct answer and that too was accurate. Below is a speaker grill. This will give you a micro-USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Vivo V5 Plus features a 5.5-inch full HD (1080×1920 pixels) display. After the time spent with the smartphone, we will call its quality satisfactory.
Vivo V5 Plus camera
The most important feature of the Vivo V5 Plus is the dual front cameras. Available in 8 megapixel sensor with 20 megapixels. The Sony IMX 376 1 / 2.78 inch sensor is used in the 20 megapixel camera. Its aperture is F / 2.0. At the same time, the 8-megapixel sensor field captures the depth of information.
With the help of this pair of cameras, users can take selfies with the Bokeh Effect. Got a glimpse of this technology on the iPhone 7 Plus. Users can change the focus area even after the shot is taken. We found that the camera system of the Vivo V5 Plus is very efficient. However, facial beautification and HDR mode do not greatly improve the quality of photos.
The Vivo V5 Plus has a 16-megapixel camera on the back. We found the pictures taken with this camera to be good and there was nothing unique about them. The performance of the camera is not particularly good under low light conditions. However, we did spend a certain amount of time with this handset. In such a situation, the final decision on the performance of the camera will be assigned for review.
Vivo V5 Plus software
The Vivo V5 Plus smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based Fonduch OS 3.0. It has a 2 GHz octa core Snapdragon 625 chipset with 4GB of RAM. Just like the hardware design, the software also gets the look of the iPhone. We had no complaints about the performance in the time we spent with the V5 Plus.
The built-in storage of the Vivo V5 Plus is 64GB. The battery is 3055 mAh and supports fast charging. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 AC, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS. The speaker of the Vivo V5 Plus brings out the loud sound, but we are not satisfied with its quality.
The Vivo V5 Plus is only available in gold in India. The handset will compete with the OnePlus 3D and Moto Z Play in this price range. By the way, the Vivo V5 Plus has a weaker processor than the OnePlus 3D. Like the Moto Z Play, the Mots are not supported. In such a scenario, it is not easy for the company to attract customers only by using a dual front camera. By the way, we recommend waiting for the review of Vivo V5 Plus.
