Ever since Vivo smartphone brand made its entry into the Indian market, it has gone for all the tried and tested methods to showcase itself as a premium smartphone brand. From hiring Ranveer Singh, Bollywood’s heartthrob to manufacturing phones with higher resolution front camera in order to cash-in on the craze of selfies amongst the youth of India, Vivo was in constant search of super marketing tactics that would enhance its brand value amongst the Indian smartphone users.
But then in 2015, Vivo took a step ahead of its other Chinese contemporaries when it went on to become the sponsor of Indian Premier League. Yes the IPL, considered to be the mother of all T20 cricket leagues and which initially had corporate giants like DFL and Pepsi being its sponsor partner. In fact, no one in India really imagined a new Chinese entrant like Vivo to become the sponsor of such a popular cricket league.
Today Vivo has gone on to topple smartphone giants like Samsung and Apple from their elite positions in its home turf China. And in India, this Chinese smartphone brand has taken the next step ahead to see itself rise above others, which is producing quality smartphones with a decent price tag.
To take forward its relationship with IPL and be a partner to its 10th-anniversary celebrations, Vivo recently launched the limited and matte black edition of the Vivo V5 Plus in India just a few days ago. The smartphone packs some really good features and is priced at Rs. 25,990. So, let’s review the phone along with its features.
As mentioned above, Vivo V5 plus comes with a matte finish and although the phone might not look as glossy as other metal smartphones, it does exhibit a fair amount of elegance and style that would make any smartphone lover go crazy for it.
Vivo’s V5 plus comes with 5.5 inch 1080p IPS LCD display that provides you with a stunning viewing experience along with colors coming out sharp and vibrant on the screen. The best thing about the phone is that in spite of having a big display, it is easy to hold and fits in your hand comfortably without creating any problem in day-to-day usage.
Vivo V5 plus has the one amongst the most popular processor from Snapdragon which is octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 clocked at 2GHz along with a RAM of 4 GB which is quite good for overall gaming and internet surfing experience. Although there might be a bit of lag or stutter while playing graphic-heavy games but then they are easily unrecognizable.
The battery too in Vivo V5 plus is a massive 3,055mAh battery which supports fast charging. It can be assumed safely that in just one charge the phone will last easily for a full day without creating any problems for you. Such a thing is really a plus point for any smartphone, considering the fact that after the advent of Jio, heavy data usage has become a norm for smartphone users in India who were earlier dependent on Wifi.
The camera is the biggest USP of Vivo V5 plus which has a whopping 20-megapixel front-facing camera that uses a Sony IMX376 sensor along with f/2.0 aperture and a moonlight LED flash. And surprising, the smartphone also has an additional 8-megapixel front snapper. The dual camera results in perfect selfies that are sharp enough. The rear camera is a 16-megapixel one which also captures good photographs even in low light conditions.
