After establishing itself as a leading player when it comes to selfies with the world’s first smartphone with 20MP front camera, vivo seems to be taking things to the next level. The brand is starting 2017 with the launch of a dual-selfie camera phone, the V5 Plus. That alone makes the phablet worth a second look. But that’s not all this device is about. That’s why we’ll be telling you about five things that make the vivo V5 Plus worth purchasing.
Not one, but two selfie cameras
As we mentioned above, the highlight of the vivo V5 Plus is its two selfie cameras at the front. The combination of a 20MP and 8MP shooters offer an incredible amount of details and vivid colours for your selfies. You can also capture your selfies in dim environments as it has an LED flash, dubbed as the moonlight selfie by the company. However what really sets it apart from other phones is the bokeh effects. Imagine getting amazing depth of field with your face in focus and rest of the background blurred. Won’t that be cool?
Sports a gorgeous design
The vivo V5 Plus packs a lot, yet manages to maintain a slim profile. It measures just 7.2mm, and is quite light weight too. Even with a metallic aluminium body, it weighs only 152g. The best part is that the antennas don’t break the looks as they are just present around the frame.
Features a stunning display
The vivo V5 Plus is built around a 5.5-inch display, bringing it in the widely popular phablet segment. It has a rich resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, offering sharp text and good visuals. The IPS panel offers vibrant colours as well with adequate brightness levels.
Comes equipped with a powerful hardware
The vivo V5 Plus comes equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. The octa-core processor is quite powerful with its eight cores running at 2GHz. But that’s not the only good thing about it as it’s also extremely power efficient. With its 14nm fabrication process, it ensures a good battery life. Completing the CPU is 4gigs of RAM and Mali T graphics engine. With such combination, you don’t need to worry about any lags while using multiple apps, playing heavy games such as Asphalt 8 or switching between various apps.
A day-long battery life
Powering the vivo V5 Plus is a 3,055mAh battery. The capacity is pretty good for a good runtime. But since the phablet features the Snapdragon 625, the battery life is bettered. Even with heavy usage of gaming or tasks such as GPS or 4G access, it won’t require a charge before the end of the day.
What’s more, the smartphone supports the latest 4G networks with its dual-compatibility. For your normal photography, it has a 16MP rear camera. Overall, the vivo V5 Plus is a loaded offering, available at an attractive price point of Rs 27,980.
