Editor's Note [Positives]
  • 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
  • Premium metal design, with amazing attention to detail
  • Top-notch build quality
  • Brilliant in-hand feel, with edges that curve perfectly
  • Good display with vivid colors, wide viewing angles, and good sunlight visibility
  • MIUI is one of the better interfaces built over Android, and has a lot of useful functionality, but is still simple to use
  • Top-level, power packed performance with best-in-class hardware - and 3GB of RAM results in very good multi-tasking performance too
  • Excellent battery life - this phone is an absolute road-runner
  • Excellent, responsive fingerprint scanner
  • Good call quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • 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
  • Camera is pretty decent, but could have been better
