Up front, it features a 5.5-inch 1280×720 HD display covered in 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass for protection, giving the V5 an ideal premium feel in the hand for its mid-range price. Performance wise, the Vivo V5 is equipped with a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor running at 1.5GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage expandable via micro SD up to 128GB.

Vivo V5: The Extreme Smartphone

Among its new features is an improved version of Vivo’s take on multitasking, Smart Split 2.0, which allows users to view two apps side-by-side. Another feature is the Eye Protection Mode, which filters blue light from the screen to protect its users’ eyesights.

Vivo’s V5 smartphone is also equipped with a 32-bit AK4376 digital to analog converter Hi-Fi chip, as well as a new iteration of its proprietary operating system, Funtouch OS 2.6, now based on Android’s 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.
