So many of us have been bitten by the selfie bug and love devices that have good front camera features, but is that enough? A selfie-centric smartphone also needs a good processor, battery life and storage that could help you take thousands of pictures without any hurdles of app lags, low battery, and space. Vivo has been luring selfie lovers since last year and has launched yet another device the V5s — an upgrade to the V5. The ‘S’ stands for two highlights, selfie and storage.
Like its predecessor the V5s has a whopping 20 MP front camera. It also comes with the Vivo’s signature, Moonlight Glow, a flash mechanism that helps to take better pictures in low light conditions without overexposing the image. There’s also a new feature called ‘group selfie’, which pans the camera to capture a large group. For additional editing and beautifying, there’s Face Beauty 6.0. The beautification mode is good enough to hide dark spots and give smooth, bright selfies. The 13 MP rear camera provides decent image quality. Vivo has upgraded the internal memory of this device to 64 GB. There’s also an option to expand the memory to 256 GB via a hybrid slot.
Design-wise, the V5s look and feels more classy, especially in the matte black colour. It’s slightly thinner that its predecessor. The 5.5-inch device easily fits in one palm. There’s a fingerprint sensor, which is conveniently located at the bottom-front of the device. The screen resolution is 1280 by 720 pixels and features an eye protection mode.
On the software front, there’s the “smart screen-split” feature that opens two apps at the same time. Another interesting feature is the app clone, that allows you to create copy of an existing app, for example to maintain two accounts in the same device. The 4G VOLTE device runs on a 1.5 GHz MediaTek octa core chip with 4 GB RAM and the battery life of 3000 mAh is enough for an entire day. The Vivo V5s packs good features with reasonable pricing at Rs 18,990....
