Vivo V5 - A Remarkable, Budget-Friendly Flagship
The V5 is one of the latest flagships from Vivo, sporting an impressive display and front camera. It is surely a step-up from its predecessors and can compete with other wallet-friendly flagships. Here’s a breakdown of its specs and features.
The Vivo V5 looks like any popular phone in the market today, wielding a bright 5.5-inch IPS display with impressive color saturation. Although its screen resolution is HD, it doesn’t affect its performance as the text appears sharp and does not have any jaggedness around the icons. As for the display’s protective covering, it comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass that complements with the device’s faux-metal chassis. Also, the V5 has capacitive navigation buttons and a fingerprint sensor is integrated into the Home button, similar to the traditional iPhones. The sensor works incredibly fast at authenticating so unlocking it will surely be a breeze.
Smooth hardware performance
The V5 houses a MediaTek MT6750 chipset with 8 cores similar to top-of-the-line phones like Oppo F1s. It also comes with a 4GB of RAM and a 32-GB internal storage that work well with the hardware, ensuring a smooth Android experience. You will definitely not experience any performance issues with it when playing games and running demanding apps. Aside from that, it has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG, GPS, and FM radio.
The selling point of the Vivo V5 is its 20-megapixel front snapper that wields a Sony IMX376 sensor with a f/2/0 aperture. With that, you won’t have any problems shooting selfies in broad daylight as the images have a great color reproduction. Also, the V5 boasts its “moonlight flash” that produces a continuous beam of diffused light to illuminate your face. This feature does a better job at lighting compared to those smartphones with typical LED or screen flash. In addition, the V5 comes with a full-HD video recording and Face Beauty shooting mode for selfie lovers. You can also enhance your selfies using the “one-tap makeover” option.
Impressive Battery Life
The Vivo V5 houses a non-removable 3000mAh battery that can last up to 11 hours. With regular use, you can easily manage more than a day and a half of active usage. The device has an impressive standby time, which is perfect for users who are not using their device all the time. Although it doesn’t support fast charging, it comes with a 10-W charger that can recharge the phone battery’s juice up to a 25 percent charge in an hour.
