Vivo V5 Details

Introduction and Design
Vivo has introduced its latest V-series smartphone. The V5 is the successor to the V3 Max and makes its way with decent specifications. One of the important aspects of the smartphone is that it is aimed towards all selfie enthusiasts.  
The device looks similar to the V3 Max with a smaller display. Also, there is a fingerprint sensor which is integrated with the home button placed below the display. The rounded edges make the device easy to fit in the palm. The V5 is available in multiple colours. 
Camera and Platform
Focussing on the selfie crazy population, the Vivo V5 comes with a 20-megapixel front-facing camera which is paired with an LED flash that lets you shoot images and record videos even in the dark. At the back, the smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera which too, is assisted by an LED flash to handle dull environments. 
The Vivo V5 runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system out of the box. 
Performance and Battery
Users can expect smooth and flawless performance as the device is armed with a 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 652 chipset. Also, working on more than two apps simultaneously shouldn't be an issue as there is 4GB of RAM to support the cause. 
One can also expect a full day of smartphone usage with the non-removable Li-Ion 3,000 mAh battery.
Display and Connectivity
On the front sits, a 5.2-inch Full HD display that reproduces vivid colours and is paired with decent viewing angles which allow great visibility even in the most demanding situations. The screen is further protected against scratches via Corning's Gorilla Glass.  
In terms of connectivity, there are options like 4G, dual-SIM support, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and a microUSB 2.0 port.
