Vivo, the fast growing Chinese smartphone brand has launched its much awaited phone, Vivo V5, touted as the “Perfect Selfie” phone.

The Vivo V5 is powered by 1.5GHz octa-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6750 processor with Mali-T860 MP2 and runs on Funtouch OS 2.6 (based on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1).
The phone has a 5.5 inches full HD(1280*720) IPS Display with 267 ppi pixel density and is protected by a tough Corning Gorilla Glass screen.
Vivo V5 is 154g in weight and comes in two colour varients, namely Crown Gold and Space Gray. It also houses a water-resistant fingerprint sensor, which is embedded on its home button.
On the network front, Vivo V5 is a Dual Sim (GSM+GSM) phone sporting One Nano(Hybrid) and One Micro sim slot. It is VoLTE enabled (supports Reliance Jio).
At Rs. 17,980(available on all major ecommerce websites), Vivo V5 is one of the best “Selfie phones” available in this price range. Overall, Vivo V5 can be considered an average phone with an above-average selfie camera at good price.

If you use your phone mainly for social media and are an active user of Instagram and Snapchat then wait no more, Vivo V5 is the best Selfie phone you can buy right now at this amazing price point. Moreover, all new phones going to be launched in 2017 are going to be a little more expensive in the wake of demonetization, and the so-called increase in “cost-of-doing-buisness”. The government has also trashed payment processing fees charged by companies at POS terminals to process debit/credit card transactions.
Make the most of DeMonetization, Enjoy being a Cashless Indian!
