I bought this product two week back and i have not faced any problems till date. i am very happy..

Camera and its performance are just mindblowing. Battery life is super. there is No hanging problem and no heating problem faced even while playing heavy games.just an amazing Vivo V5 phone. Worth to buy at such a reasonable vivo V5 price in india. my selfie clicks come out really well.

ramesh khuranassays...

Vivo v5 is a very good phone in terms of camera quality and sound but very poor battery back up...on moderate to slight heavy usage, it works for only 5-6 hrs. battery will get discharged at the end of day you need to find a charger or power bank....i will not suggest this product for those who are surfing internet or travel a lot ....otherwise i am satisfied with this big and sharp display. the selfie camera is also great and produces some really good selfies. i am happy but keep a power bank handy with u alwayss. the Vivo v5 price in india is around 15K-16K which is reasonable.

nidhi singhalsays...

vivo v5 is the Best phone ever with 20 megapixel moonlight camera till date. i am a big selfie fan. i wanted to buy the phone for great selfie experience but after lot of research, i realized that no other phone is better than this Vivo v5 so i bought this phone. amazing looks, design and superb picture quality. i recommend this phone to everyone.

avnish rahejasays...

very good mobile awesome selfie camera. i am quite happy to see its camera clicks. Vivo V5 has superb camera. i bought this phone two weeks back and i am enjoying it.. it is no less than any of the high-end and expensive flagship phone sby other brands.

the only problem with this phone is that it comes with hybrid SIM slot which means that we can either insert second SIM or insert microSD card to increase storage capacity. otherwise i have absolutely no complaints from this phone. i am just loving it.. its looks, performance are just great.

nitin jainsays...

it has a hybrid slot which means that we can either put 2nd sim or memory card. vivo's cameras are always amazing. good selfie phone but spending around 18,000 just for clicking selfies is not justified. as it hardware specs are not amazing. the chipset could have been better.

himani chaturvedisays...

Vivo V5 is a good selfie centric phone. but there are few drawbacks of this device.

1. Phone is slow and the user interface is not that friendly and easy to use and operate..

2. Battery becpmes low very fast in less than a day and takes hell lot of time to charge it to full capacity.

3. it sometimes gets hanged also while using it for very longer time.

rhea sensays...

Vivo V5 is a superb phone. best camera specifications. its 20 MP moonlight camera gives very good and impressive selfie clicks. looks are amazing and are comparable to that of premium phones- apple iPhone. this phone is a delight for selfie enthusiasts. u can easily play heavy games like asphalt etc. design is really great. and i am loving it.

lookwise, this phone is great and has commendable features but only disadvantage is the operating system. Marshmallow software needs to be upgraded.
john dsouzasays...
i bought this phone from a local vendor near my house. Got it a vivo v5 price of 16,900 which when i was searching online came out to be a higher price. Online this phone was available at lower price below 16K. It is great but gets hot after playing heavy games like NFC, Asphalt 8, Modern combat for long time duration. Also selfies in low light conditions or at night did not came out well. Moto Z play flagship phone is a good subsititute in case u do not want to go for vivo brand and want to have better camera performance.
This is my third vivo phone. Initially i had Vivo V1, then i upgraded it to v5 and now finally i have bought Vivo v5. It has super features and tough build. Super quality phone. Ultimate customer support and after sales service. No performance issues while operation
great phone.. must buy.. great performance. working pretty well since i have bought it in december..
the device is good but it gets heated up on playing high-end games like NFC, MODERN combat, Asphalt 5 and similar typoe of games. selfie in low light or at night is not that impressive and may dissapoint you.
i am mesmerized by the performance of this mobile Vivo V5. it is a delight for selfie lovers. selfie clicks turn out to be quite amazing. the front facing camera has good resolution. the screen resolution is 720p pxels which provides lot of clarity and there is no problem even in direct sunlight.
i bought this phone around 20 days back on the suggestion of my friend who is a big fan of VIVO mobile brand. i bought it from a store near to my place for 16900 and took an easy interest-free EMI option. but i found it cheaper online later on. so anyone who wants to get lowset Vivo V5 price, should check all price comparison portals and get best deal. i am having nice experience with this phone. it has cool features, delivers great images with 20 MP Camera.
and 32 GB Internal storage is enough to use .
Should buy this Phone. i recommemnd it

suman tanejasays...
It is a selfie camera phone. The resolution 720p is also very clear and sharp. crisp pictures and images.
battery backup is decent , could be more also,. no serious heating issues while playing heavy games like asphalt and more.
dsign is also good like iphone. gives premium feel.
pallavi yadavsays...
I recently bought the phone Vivo v5 one month back and there has been no complaints so far. I am very satisfied and recommend this phone to everyone who wants to have good pictures and images. the phone is equipped with some power packed features . the phone does not get heated up while playing heavy games and watching videos for couple of hours. Its selfie performance is comparable to any selfie focussed phone, whether it be an Oppo phone also. Oppo F1s is also a selfie phone. both are good phone with good camera but vivo comes with amazing cameras. i will definitely recommend buying vivo phone. rest it is an individual choice which smartphone brand you want to opt for.
sonia khuranasays...
The phone Vivo V5 is good and has great front facing camera for clicking selfies. RAM is enough to do multitasking. But th price seems little high as many other mobile manufacturers are offering high-end phones in the price range below 15,000.
