The Vivo V5 is one of the good affordable flagships available in India, and there is more than one reason to support this fact. Of course the company is putting the focus on its great 20-megapixel front-facing camera and its moonlight selfie feature, but there is a lot more to it than just the camera.
If you are looking for a perfect smartphone for a price under Rs. 20000, this one should surely be in that list, and following would be the reasons, rather the best features of the phone for you to know about.
20-megapixel front-facing camera
Boasting the Sony IMX 376 sensor, the 20MP camera on the front of the Vivo V5 has the 5P lens system and holds a F/2.0 aperture to allow more light in natural light conditions and not compromise with the capture quality.
We might have seen some great selfie cameras in the recent past, and brands like OPPO have gone to an extent to place a 16MP camera on the front of their phone, but Vivo has gone past even that and has used a 20MP camera that keeps the resolution high and does not compromise with the details.
Moonlight Selfie feature with flash
The V5’s Moonlight Selfie creates the lighting effects of a professional photography studio, giving you the soft radiant complexion of a supermodel for a beautiful picture-perfect image every time. Throwing some light on the face using a flash is one thing, and optimizing that using some software support and making the face brighter naturally is another.
The Vivo V5 has the latter, done so well that one would happily turn on the moonlight selfie feature and take naturally bright selfies in any light condition.
Metallic on the back, curvy glass on the front
The metallic back has no sharp edges. The phone is very much comfortable to hold and the slim frame doesn’t end up bluntly on the front as well, as the glass on the front has a curved edge, i.e. a 2.5D curved arc glass.
4GB of RAM, great multitasking
They say 3GB of RAM is good enough to run few apps continuously on the background while you are busy playing an intensive game on the front. But, the Vivo V5 is equipped with 4GB RAM, which is an even better offering and there is no compromise with the multitasking ever.
To talk of the actual usage, over 2.4GB of RAM is available for the user, which should be good enough for even over a dozen of apps running themselves on the background.
Super fast fingerprint recognition
Offering the fingerprint sensor on the front of the device, which also acts as the home button, the Vivo V5 has a superb scanner that is claimed to be unlocking the phone in just 0.2 seconds. Of course, one cannot calculate that in normal conditions but it is true that the recognition and unlocking is very fast.
Quick, it is so much that you could have it in the list of phones that are the fastest in recognizing a fingerprint and unlocking the screen.
Hi-Fi Music with a dedicated audio chip
Vivo has its company tagline set as “Camera & Music”. You now know why the company boasts about its camera, but there is some hardware inclusion made in the Vivo V5 for the audio output to be good.
The Vivo V5 rocks a custom-made AK4376 dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip, which is said to be offering a signal-to-noise ratio of up to 115dB. We’ve checked the audio with different levels of bass and tones, and the device has been able to deliver non-distorted clear sound.
Multi-tasking with Split screen view
The Android Marshmallow OS based FunTouch OS in Vivo V5 has a cool feature, i.e. the Smart Split 2.0 feature that lets the user multitask with two apps running at the same time, side-by-side.
What this means is, while you are watching a video on one side, you don’t have to leave it to send a message to your friend to reply to one – it can be done on the other half of the screen. Currently, Smart Split 2.0 supports video streaming, Facebook, Messages, WeChat, WhatsApp, YouTube, Video, Play Movies & TV, VLC for Android and MX Player.
These surely aren’t the only ones, but we are limiting it to the best seven features that you should take a look at, if you are planning to get one.
