The dual-SIM Vivo V5 Plus smartphone runs Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display.

In terms of optics, the smartphone packs a 16-megapixel rear camera, tagged with LED flash. However, the truly defining aspect in the camera department comes in the form of a dual camera setup at the front (20-megapixel + 8-megapixel sensors). The 20-megapixel camera on the Vivo V5 Plus makes use of Sony’s IMX376 1/2.78-inch sensor with f/2.0 aperture and 5P lens system, while the 8-megapixel camera captures depth-of-field information.

This effectively means that the smartphone’s front camera setup can produce ‘Bokeh’ effect, made popular by iPhone 7 Plus. Notably, unlike the Apple flagship, the Vivo smartphone is capable of producing this effect with front camera setup instead of rear module.

    I have used Vivo V5 for 3 months and i have reviewed some things like:

    -Design is Relative, some of you may like it, some not, for me the design of this phone is okay
    -Performance is Fair, i don’t use it for gaming so it is okay and with big ram it is over for me, fingerprint scanner is the best so far, could unlock on black stand-by screen only for 0.2 seconds
    -Screen is Okay, not so good because of HD only, but the colour and contrast is good
    -Audio is Good, loudy and hi-fi mode is good
    -Battery is Good, like the other phone with 3000 mah, 50% for 8 hours, charging this phone is normal (even using the samsung charger 2A, not having any problem)
    -Camera is Bad, although the selling point of Vivo-Oppo’s Group is Camera but to be honest (for VIVO V5) is really not worth the price at all; for the front 20 megapixel is not handled by auto focus so the selfie detail is too soft (like 5 mega front standard phone), but the colour is good, and softlight is really helpful at the low light; the main camera 13 megapixel really it is a toy camera, not having any stabilizer (even the small stabilizer), and PDAF is not having any effect to the camera, colour is fair and detail is soft and sometimes noisy, for example: take a pic on lcd it is easily get blurred even hand is steady, other phone even cheaper one could handle this thing so well

    Conclusion: i gonna exchange with the Redmi Note 4, because i am not an selfie addict but i need big battery only with the better camera
