2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Beautiful, premium, high-end design - with a metal chassis and rounded glass edges in the front
  • Build quality is superb, fit and finish are exemplary
  • Very light (at 145g), slim, and surprisingly comfortable to use with one hand thanks to very narrow bezels on either side of the screen
  • Good AMOLED display with vivid colours, good levels of brightness, and Gorilla Glass 4 protection
  • Color OS UI over Android looks nice (and quite a bit like the iOS interface), and works well
  • Good speed/performance
  • Excellent, fast fingerprint sensor
  • Good call quality
  • Decent loudspeaker - sufficiently loud without sounding tinny and hollow
  • Very good camera performance, especially in daylight - both for the rear and the front cameras
  • Good battery life
  • Support for Oppo's VOOC fast charging system (charges over 50% in half an hour)
  • Looks quite classy, and despite being a large phone, has good ergonomics
  • Slim, and light
  • Bright, colourful display that has decent 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
  • Good audio quality
  • The speakers are quite loud and clear
  • Decent battery life - the 3, 000 mAh battery is generally 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Misses out on an FM Radio, and 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
  • The custom UI on top of Android feels a little cluttered (though with a rich feature-set)
  • While the overall performance is good, it's definitely 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
