Vivo V5 Price in the Philippines is Now Just Php 10,990 : Here Are The Complete Specs

From having an official suggested retail price of Php 12,990 when it was launched in the Philippines in November 2016, the midrange selfie-centric Android smartphone Vivo V5 now goes for only Php 10,990 at all Vivo Concept Stores, kiosks, and authorized dealers across the country.

I believe the world's Top 5 smartphone seller offers this generous Php 2,000 to allow more Filipinos to experience what the brand has to offer especially in terms of snapping selfies and delivering a decent mobile multi-tasking experience.

The Vivo V5 sports an incredible 20 MegaPixel front-facing camera that features a 1/2.78” Sony IMX376 camera sensor coupled with a 5P lens system as well as an aperture of f/2.0 and Soft LED flash for enhanced low-light performance.

Filipinos checking out the 2017 Android smartphone offerings of Vivo Mobile, a popular handset brand from China.

Flaunting an anodized aluminum unibody shell, Vivo V5 is equipped with a 5.5-inch HD IPS display panel protected by 2.5D Curved Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen, a 13 MegaPixel f/2.2 PDAF camera at the back, Full HD video recorder, Dual SIM Dual Standby capability, 4G LTE mobile connectivity support, and a non-removable 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack with Fast Charging support.

Under the hood, this handset runs its FunTouch OS skinned Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with a 64-Bit Octa Core 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 and Mali-T860MP2 GPU based Mediatek MT6750 chipset that should help deliver a fairly decent gaming experience - not the best but still OK, has 4GB of RAM for smooth multitasking even when running many apps at once, and comes with 32GB of internal storage that can easily be augmented using the secondary hybrid nanoSIM slot that supports microSD card memory expansion.

One of the unique features of Vivo V5 (or Vivo Android smartphones, in general) compared to handsets by other brands is its AK4376 Hi-Fi chipset that improves audio experience when listening to music both via earphones or loud speaker.

Is this the phone for you? If you're now looking a sub-Php 12,000 Android handset with a very high-resolution selfie camera that's reliable in low to zero lighting conditions, good enough specs for a lag-free mobile experience, and a Hi-Fi chipset for clear and crisp music playback, you might want to check this model out. One of the weak points of this release, though, is that its 5.5-inch display only has 720 x 1280 pixels or HD resolution and not Full HD.

You can now get the discounted Vivo V5 at all official retail channels of Vivo Mobile Philippines both online and in shopping malls. This midrange model is out in three classy colors, namely, Gold, Rose Gold, and Space Grey.
