Daily Post Chandigarh – Vivo V5 Plus: Dual-selfie camera experience will floor you

22

While 2016 was a successful year for the Chinese smart-phone maker Vivo in India, the company has now come up with an innovative VS Plus which is touted as the lint device to have a 20MP dual-selfie camera. Riding on the success of the V5 smartphone that had a 20MP selfie camera accompanied with the front-facing “Moonlight Glow”, the Rs 27,980 V5 Plus sports two front cameras a 20MP regular camera and an 8MP shooter for the depth along with a 16M P rear camera.

Since Inception, Vivo has been selling its devices with two USPs camera and music. This time, the company has put in a lot of innovation into the VS Plus camera. Design-wise, the V5 Plus looks premium with a slight resemblance to the iPhone 7. The V5 Plus has camera sensors to the left of earpiece while flash and sensor are on the right. The fingerprint scan-ner is situated in the front.

At the back, the 5.5-inch display device boasts a camera and a flash in the top left corner with branding at the centre. The phone clicks amazing seines vivo in 20MP resolution and the second camera comes into play when you use the device to take a photo in “bokeh” mode which allows one to focus on any point in the view-finder and blur the background.

The device, without parallel, clicks beautiful bokeh photos. In case you do not get a perfect blur in the photo or you want to shift the focus to any other object. Facing a problem while taking pictures in low-light conditions? The VS Plus has sorted this out with “selfie flash”. The rear camera was not too disappointing either.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB memory powers the full-metal body device. We did not experience any lag while using the device and there were no heating issues as well. The dual-SIM device asked us to register the fingerprint scanner twice one to register the central patch and the other to register the edges. The scanner is very sensitive and responsive.

The smartphone runs on Fun touch OS 3.0 that includes impressive features like Super Screenshot that allows a user to record voice as well. With the “Smart Split” feature, an app notification can be dis-played as a floating icon. Just tap on the icon and it will expand on the half screen. As far as music is concerned, the single speaker in the V5 Plus does quite well.

Also, output through 3.5 nun jack was stunning. We would recommend buyers to purchase high quality earphones for maximum pleasure. What doesn’t work? Users feel that if Vivo is selling its device with camera as USP, it should have made the rear camera as good as the one in the front.

The rear shooter failed our test of clicking sharp images in the night. The device undoubtedly steered us through when it became heavy on the processor, but for such a price point, the Snapdragon 625 is an unfair deal. At a similar price, OnePlus 3T offers a better Snap-dragon 821 processor.
