Attention: The Vivo V5s is a 'Poutstanding' Selfie Powerhouse

27 July 2017 | Reymart Jan Sarigumba

The competition between selfie phones these days is so fierce that they’re stuffing in more tech than Doraemon’s pocket. A good example of this is the latest device from Vivo Malaysia - the Vivo V5s.

Vivo is giving exactly what smartphone photographers and selfie-lovers want – a high-end camera resolution with one-of-a-kind LED flash on the front, which they call the “Moonlight Flash”. But, is that enough reason to purchase this phone? Well, there’s more to it than that though.

Vivo V5s Design and Build: as Sleek as a Smartphone Showroom

The V5s incorporates its predecessor’s sleek unibody design, sporting a matte finish back and antenna lines that will remind you of the iPhone 7. Instead of resembling its sibling, the V5 Plus, the V5s looks more like an iPhone 7 clone due to its similar housing. Well, take this as a non-issue because this is nothing new in the on-going smartphone war. There are a ton of phones that tried to copy others and improve them to look different.

Zooming in o other details, the V5s wields a 5.5-inch screen with an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen safeguarded by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It’s equipped with a volume rocker and a power button on the upper side, while the left hosts a hybrid SIM slot that also works as a micro SD card slot.

Overall, the V5s’ display may not be on par with high-end smartphones in Malaysia but definitely, it is not far behind.

V5s Hardware: Smooth Performance

Speaking of hardware, the V5s gets a decent a speed without harnessing a top-of-the-line chipset. It houses a MediaTek MT6750 chipset with 8 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is capable of delivering a smooth performance. Navigating is also a breeze while switching between various applications. What’s more, it comes with a fantastic 4GB of RAM and 64 GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 256 GB through a microSD card. This allows you to slam in more apps and files should you run out of internal storage.

V5s Camera: Just “Poutstanding”

The V5s’ selfie camera is the real highlight of this phone. Wielding 20 megapixels with Moonlight Glow Flash, the V5s’ front camera offers you a natural glimmer on the face, providing you Insta-worthy selfies under low light settings. With the beauty mode on, the selfies turn out to be stunning; thanks to the Sony MX376 Exmore RS camera sensor that is integrated into the front snapper. Meanwhile, the V5s’ 13-megapixel rear sensor is not far behind with other flagship camera phones as it provides decent shots, especially in well-lit environments.

To Wrap it Up

The Vivo V5s is certainly what you’d expect from a flagship device, especially its front camera that provides everything you ask for a selfie camera phone. With this device, Vivo reminds people that selfie mania is here to stay.
