Vivo V5 Lite Official Price, Complete Specs, and Availability in the Philippines

Last Sunday - May 14, 2017, after taking my mom out for shopping, I checked out the new Vivo Mobile kiosk located at the ground-floor of SM City San Lazaro and I asked the sales reps which handset model they're currently selling a lot of.

"Sir, Vivo V5 Lite is our best-selling model here," one of them told me.

He added, "[I think it's popular because it's fairly affordable, the design is good, and it has good specs.]"

I agree with his insight -- though, I want to add that the smartphone's imaging capabilities - particularly its selfie camera - had also contributed to making it a big hit.


The more affordable and less powerful version of the Vivo V5, the Vivo V5 Lite - I believe - is great for students and yuppies who are currently looking for a goodlooking smartphone with decent specs and above average imaging capabilities for its price.

Clad in aluminum, the sleek 7.6mm-thin Vivo V5 Lite features a 5.5-inch HD IPS display that's protected by scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 3 panel, a 13 MegaPixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and phase detection autofocus, Full HD video recorder, a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery pack, Dual SIM Dual Standby capability, 4G LTE support, and a 16 MegaPixel front cam with f/2.0 aperture for good low light performance plus Beauty Mode for selfies that are instantly ready for sharing on Facebook or Instagram.]

Inside, this handset runs FunTouch-skinned Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with a 64-Bit Octa Core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 and Mali-T860MP2 GPU based Mediatek MT6750 chipset, has 3GB of RAM, and comes with 32GB of internal storage that can be augmented using the secondary hybrid nanoSIM slot that doubles as a microSD card expansion slot.
