Vivo V5 review summary

The Vivo V5 is a selfie-focused smartphone, featuring a 20-megapixel front camera and ‘moonlight flash'. The 5.5-inch phone has an HD IPS display that manages good colour reproduction and brightness levels. It’s slim and light too, making it easy to carry around. The V5 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek SoC and 4GB of RAM, which deliver good general performance and multitasking. The hybrid 4G SIM slot supports VoLTE and can also accommodate a microSD card up to 128GB. Camera performance leaves a lot to be desired, though. The front camera fares well in daylight. but the rear camera struggles. Low-light performance is a bit weak for both sensors. Battery life and audio quality are both very good. Overall, the V5 feels like a bit of a missed opportunity at Rs.17,980, especially when you have better performers like the Oppo F1s and Gionee S6s around the same price. Read detailed Vivo V5 review
