The Vivo V5s India launch comes at a time when the interest in mid-range smartphone segment is huge. As such, its price is near the high end of the segment.

At first, only the Matte Black colour option will be shipped. The shipments for Crown Gold colour option will start from May 20.
Vivo V5s Competitors
|Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime||Rs 16,900|
|Motorola Moto G5 Plus||Rs 16,999|
Both competitors of the V5s cost less than the Vivo smartphone. However, we think the V5s has some extra goodies to justify its premium pricing. After all, there needs to be something in the smartphone for its maker to price it at a premium over others. So, without further ado, let’s get into what goes into the Vivo V5s.
Vivo V5s Specifications

|Internal Storage||64GB (expandable up to 128GB)|
|Display Size||5.5-inch HD (1280x720p) resolution|
|OS||Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Funtouch OS|
Few things to note about the Vivo V5s. There is 64GB of storage onboard which can still be increased. A 5.5-inch display is great for all types of users, be it media consumers or power users. Curiously, it comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow is what the V5s comes with. There is dual SIM feature for those using more than one SIM card. However, the SIM tray is a hybrid type and can either take one SIM and SD card or two SIMs and no SD card. Also, it can accommodate one micro SIM card and one Nano SIM card.
Vivo V5s Camera
|Primary (rear) Camera||13-megapixel with flash|
|Front Camera||20-megapixel with flash|
The front-facing camera is the highlight feature of this smartphone. Vivo calls it the moonlight camera. It also gets a flash for the front-facing camera. The rear camera is a standard fare 13-megapixel unit with flash. You can ask the phone to take a shot with your voice or by showing your palm. Time for us to talk about this phone’s features.
Vivo V5s Battery
While the battery of this smartphone is big, there is an absence of battery-related features. However, addition of software features such as battery saver mode helps in battery life department. However, we do feel Vivo should have fit in a bigger battery in the V5s.
