Vivo V5s Hands-on and Initial Impression; Another Perfect Selfie Companion?

Vivo V5s Hands-on and Initial Impression; Another Perfect Selfie Companion?


Vivo, a smartphone brand that continues to gain global recognition, has locally launched the new V5s, its newest addition to the perfect selfie family. The new phone offers the brand's notable selfie camera with upgraded storage capacity.

The new Vivo V5s is now available in the Philippines for Php14,990. Compared to the V5, it now has a bigger storage capacity that allows users to take more selfies and groufies as well as capture unforgettable picture-perfect moments.


Vivo V5s Back

Placed between the V5 and V5 Plus, you can see that the Vivo V5s shares similar aesthetics with its perfect selfie siblings. It sports a metal unibody design that offers a premium feel and has a 5.5-inch HD display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 that delivers just the right color contrast. Setting it apart from the two, however, is its U-shaped cover lines located on both the top and bottom. Gone were the horizontal lines similar to Apple's iPhone.

At the bottom of the V5s, you'll find the 3.5mm audio jack, microphone, speakers, and micro-USB 2.0 port with OTG function.

Meanwhile, on the left side is the SIM card slot that can house two SIMs, one Micro and one Nano. The device supports LTE connectivity, which is pretty much the standard with these types of phones nowadays.

Vivo V5s Right Side

The volume rocker and power button, on the other hand, are on the right side of the device.

Apart from its pleasing design, the V5s also offers great processing power. Combining the V5's processor and the V5 Plus' memory configuration, it comes with a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.

The V5s also runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with FunTouch OS 3.0 and features a HiFi AK4376 audio chip for unparalleled sound quality. There's the interesting App Clone feature as well that allows users to log on to multiple accounts using the same device.

Vivo V5s Sample Selfie

Moreover, Vivo has been pretty consistent with ensuring that all its phones offer notable camera specs. At the front, there's the improved 20-megapixel f/2.0 Sony IMX376 selfie camera with softlight flash. Meanwhile, at the back, there's the 13MP f/2.2 main shooter with PDAF and LED flash. Based on the unedited (but resized) sample selfie above, you can clearly see that the V5s really does make a perfect selfie companion.


We were only able to play with the Vivo V5s for a short time during its local launch, but we can say that it truly got the chops of another perfect selfie companion. Without having to shell out too much cash, for only Php14,990, you'll get a phone with decent specs that excel particularly in the selfie camera department.
