  • Still runs Android Marshmallow
  • HD display at this price
  • Too much bloatware
  • Slightly expensive

Smartphones targeted at selfie-obsessed users aren't a new thing anymore. Brands including Gionee, Oppo, and Vivo have consistently been launching selfie-focused smartphones in India, which sport front camera enhancements. However, it isn't enough to be good at just one thing. Vivo's V5 series has been fairly popular, and the company is extending the series further. The new Vivo V5s is the third smartphone in the range, following the more affordable Vivo V5 and the premium Vivo V5 Plus.

Vivo V5s Summary

The Vivo V5s is an improvement over the Vivo V5. The phone will impress with its general performance, battery life, and camera quality. The HD display and the fact that it still runs the now-dated Android Marshmallow are few letdowns. The excessive bloatware was also disappointing. The Vivo V5s does a decent job when it comes to general operations like multitasking or running apps smoothly. If you're not that obsessed with selfies, there are better all-rounders at this price or less.

    Little One ʕ•ع•ʔ (Jan 4, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I have two problems with this phone, first is whenever I record videos outdoors the pixel density is annoying especially when you zoom in, secondly my lock screen notifications is not working, but overall it's a great device

  • Worst about camera
    Shubham Chaudhari (Sep 5, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    Camera quality is very poor. Camera 20 megapixel is works as 2 megapixel. Moonlight selfie can be possible if you are on moon otherwise no use of flash.
