2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Full metal unibody design, and good build quality
  • Rounded sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint scanner is generally quick and easy to use
  • Very good display - bright and vivid with decent sunlight legibility - great for watching videos and games
  • Samsung's UI over Android 6.0 is neat and simple while adding a number of additional features like one-handed operation mode, smart alert makes the phone vibrate when you pick it up to notify you about missed calls and messages, easy mute, S bike mode, Ultra data saving mode, and locking/privacy options
  • Decent all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including games, and multi-tasking
  • Decent rear and front cameras under daylight conditions - most of the shots taken by the smartphone have decent colours and are crisp - and the handset is able to lock focus quickly
  • Video recording quality is decent too and audio is also crisp
  • Decent loudspeaker output
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
  • Looks quite classy, and despite being a large phone, has good ergonomics
  • Slim, and light
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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]
  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when put under stress
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)
  • Lacks ambient light sensor, gyroscope and magnetic sensor
  • 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
