Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Flagship-grade design with a beautiful metal unibody
  • Beautiful, large, sharp display, with excellent contrast levels
  • eUI on top of Android is a nice, clutter-free, and butter-smooth experience, and has welcome customization options
  • Top-end performance backed by latest, top-end chipset
  • Very good fingerprint scanner
  • Excellent video player with seamless 4K playback
  • Very good loudspeaker
  • The Le Max 2 camera gets most things right with plenty of detail, contrast, and dynamic range and good HDR and Panorama modes as well
  • The 2160p videos are equally good as the still images from the main camera - fluid frame-rate, great detail, nice contrast, colors and dynamic range
  • Free bundled 1 year LeEco content subscription is a pretty nice value-add
  • Looks quite classy, and despite being a large phone, has good ergonomics
  • Bright, colourful display that has good legibility even under direct sunlight
  • Good performance in day-to-day use, and multitasking, with 4GB RAM
  • Decent 13 MP rear-facing camera - takes good photos in both well-lit and low-lit conditions - autofocus is decently quick too
  • Good front camera, with field of view large enough to fit a few friends in the frame, and capable of capturing a lot of details such as texture and contrast which is uncommon to find in this price bracket
  • The speakers are quite loud and clear
  • The 3, 000 mAh battery is good enough for a whole day’s worth of mixed usage
  • On the whole, the Vivo V5 is a good purchase for someone who wants to click a lot of selfies, and consume media on their phone
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Heavy and a bit cumbersome
  • Battery life is decent, but could have been better
  • You will need to use CDLA compliant USB-C headphones to actually derive the benefit of the lossless audio technology (instead of using standard jack headphones with the bundled USB-C to 3.5mm jack adapter)
  • You will not be able to charge the phone at the same time as listening to music, which could be an inconvenience
  • No NFC support
  • The body, though it looks good, does feel very plasticky and not as well built as the Lenovo Z2 Plus or even the Samsung J7
  • While the overall performance is good, it's not chart leading in this price bracket - heavy games/apps like Modern Combat 5 or Asphalt 8 are not ideal for the phone - and the phone can be a bit laggy after using the camera burst mode
  • Front camera is good overall, but tends of over-expose pictures a little bit
  • The lack of a USB Type C port, and quick charging, is also a negative
