2-minute Review [Positives]
  • The F3 Plus continues the Oppo tradition of excellent build quality, finish and design, with a well-designed metal unibody
  • Rounded edges make it relatively comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint sensor is quick for unlocking the device, and just like before, you can use it for other purposes like locking apps and files
  • The 6-inch display is beautiful, sharp, and really dominates the front of the phone, thanks to thin borders on the sides
  • One of the advantages of lugging around a massive smartphone is the ability to really enjoy watching videos on such a large screen
  • ColorOS UI works well, is well optimised in terms of performance, and has aesthetics similar to iOS
  • Good overall performance backed by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC, and 4GB of RAM (though benchmark numbers might not be as good as what's possible with a top-end Snapdragon 821 SoC but you’d be hard pressed to actually tell the difference in daily usage)
  • Very good set of dual front cameras - unlike other dual front cameras, the second front camera here isn’t used for depth of field - instead, it has a wide-angle lens for group selfies, which is a much more practical idea that's likely to have a wider appeal (you can easily switch between the 2 cameras - one for individual selfies, and the other for group selfies)
  • Overall, pictures from the front cameras are detailed, and even have good low-light performance - this is arguably the best selfie camera in this price bracket
  • Rear camera is good too - daylight shots specially have very good detail and saturated colours that really pop - though the camera it's definitely not as good as the class-leading OnePlus 3/3T
  • The single speaker is quite powerful, and sound is loud and fairly distinct
  • Decent call quality
  • Very good battery life - lasts well beyond a single day of regular usage
  • Supports Oppo’s VOOC fast charging technology
  • Very well built, premium looking device - very iPhone-like looks
  • The phone has thin bezels on both sides of the display, giving it better ergonomics than many other 5.5-inch devices, and the 2.5D curved glass adds a touch of class to the whole design
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Very good display - the viewing angles are good, colour saturation is fairly decent, and sunlight legibility is good too
  • Very iOS like Funtouch UI, that is done reasonably well, and has good added functionality
  • Decent overall performer - the phone remains snappy as far as non-processor intensive apps are concerned - and even games work well - although, the app load times as well as the delay while switching between apps is considerably longer than the OnePlus 3/3T
  • Has a unique dual camera setup at the front making it one of the best selfie-centric smartphones - selfie enthusiasts will definitely love the V5 Plus
  • The dual camera setup makes for a cool 'Bokeh' effect in selfies, and also enables the phone to shoot better images in low light conditions
  • Decent call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Loud speaker output
  • Good battery life - lasts the day with moderate use
  • Supports fast charging tech that takes about 2 hours to fully charge the device
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Striking looks aside, there’s still no getting around the fact that this is a big phone, and quite heavy too
  • The buttons on the sides are a bit of a reach, even for someone with large hands
  • Colors on the display are pretty heavily saturated - which might not be to everyone's taste
  • Misses out on the modern USB standard - USB Type-C
  • No FM Radio
  • No NFC support
  • While overall performance is decent, it is a step behind the Snapdragon 820/821 competition like the OnePlus 3
  • Primary (rear) camera could have been better - there is an observable lack of detail, which became more evident when you see images on an external display - the camera algorithm tends to soften down the images to hide noise - especially in low light, the images are pretty ordinary
  • Misses out on things like USB Type-C, NFC, and Wi-Fi ac - which are generally expected at this price point
  • On the whole, the Vivo V5 Plus is a good selfie centric phone but most other things about it are overshadowed by it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3 and 3T
