Vivo V5s is an excellent phone when it comes to performance. With a powerful processor and large RAM, it offers a smooth experience while playing heavy games and multitasking. Options such as fingerprint sensor, Gorilla Glass, and a superb front camera make it worth buying. However, the absence of full HD display is a disappointment. Overall, a suitable option if photography and performance are your priorities.

Inside, there is a 1.5GHz octa-core Cortex A53 processor upon the MediaTek MT6750 chipset aided by 4GB of RAM. The handset boots on Android v6.0 (Marshmallow) operating system and is embedded with a fingerprint sensor at the front.
The phone is well designed with a metal body which measures 153.8 x 75.5 x 7.5 and weighs 154 grams. It is available in four different colours - Crown Gold, Matte Black and Energetic Blue. Coming to the camera, the Vivo V5s sports a 13MP main camera which captures nice quality images. A superb 20MP front shooter (Exmor RS sensor - 2.0f aperture) is present which outputs sharp selfie pictures. In terms of storage, the smartphone features an internal space of 64GB which can be increased up to 128GB using a microSD card. For more memory, one can make use of OTG cable.
On the connectivity ground, the phone offers a wide range of options such as dual SIM, 4G (supports Indian bands), 3G, 2G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS with A-GPS and microUSB 2.0.
