Here are 7 things that makes Vivo V5 a stand out

Perfect Selfie

The 20MP camera that has SONY IMX376 sensors coupled with a 5P lens system and an aperture of f/2.0 is a stand out. It creates powerful high resolution images featuring extraordinary clarity and vivid natural colors with every selfie, so you always look your best.

It has also a Moonlight Selfie which creates the lighting effects that gives you soft radiant complexion every time you take a selfie. Face Beauty Mode 6.0 is also included in the package so you don’t need to worry about photo retouching.

Sleek Brilliant Design

With an ultra-slim frame featuring Corning® Gorilla® 2.5D curved glass, and a back cover that gleams with metallic radiance, the V5 is a piece of art to fall in love with.

To prove that the Vivo V5 is really a stand out in taking selfies, rather #PerfectSelfie, we collated photos from random V5 users and guess what, all photos are impressive. Vivo V5 truly delivered what is expected.

The Vivo V5 is not just built for the #PerfectSelfie, the 13MP rear camera with Phase Detection AutoFocus is pretty decent also. As an avid mobile photographer, I always prefer a phone that has the capabilities of professional cameras and I am pretty sure the V5 is up for the task. Considering also its affordability, superb performance and amazing new features this beautiful beast is really worth every penny.
