Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Good looking phone, with a pleasing design and form factor - with a metal unibody design and a sturdy build
  • Slim, sleek and feels great in hand
  • Decent display, with vibrant colors (resolution is on the low side though)
  • Runs an almost stock-like Android interface keeping things nice and simple
  • Decent performance - no hiccups or slowdowns in regular use - you can play casual games, watch YouTube videos, browse the web, take pictures and the phone still holds well - however, it will struggle with high-ends games
  • Delivers clear, sharp sound through a single, bottom-mounted speaker
  • Looks quite classy, and despite being a large phone, has good ergonomics
  • Slim, and light
  • Bright, colourful display that has good legibility even under direct sunlight (although resolution is on the low side)
  • 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
  • 20 MP front camera is the defining feature here - it is good (though, not ground-breaking) 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
  • Good battery life - 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]
  • The 13-megapixel rear camera on the Eluga Mark 2 is average - focusing is not ideal, and colours are muted as well - low-light photographs are disappointing too
  • Average battery life - even with a 720p display and a not-so-powerful processor, the phone struggles to last 7 hours by the end of a working day
  • 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
  • The custom UI on top of Android feels a little cluttered
  • 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
