Vivo V5 features a 5.5 inch IPS 2.5D arc display which has only HD 720p resolutions.
V5 is powered by a MediaTek MT6750 Octa-Core processor along with Mali T-860 which seems to be pretty good for the day to day usage, but it’s defiantly not meant for hardcore gamers. However, the phone has 4GB of DDR3 RAM which will help the phone running multiple apps smoothly.
The phone offers 32GB of onboard storage, which is further expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.
The key highlight of this smartphone is its front 20 Megapixel Sony IMX376 sensor with f/2.0 aperture, assisted by front selfie flash aka “Moonlight” flash as called by the company. And, at the back, it is having a 13 Megapixel sensor with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and LED flash.
It runs on Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) operating system along with FunTouch OS v2.6.
Vivo V5 supports hybrid SIM slots, so either you can use it in dual SIM configuration or with 1 SIM and microSD card. Other connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro-USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
There is a 3,000 mAh battery and in-side-the-box, you get a normal 5V 2A charger.
Design and Built:
Vivo V5 seems to be pretty decent build smartphone and has metal going around on edges and on the back. However, in terms of design, it is almost identical to the Oppo F1s and few others as well.
