Remember the song “CHAL BETA SELFIE LE LE RE” Aisa phone market Mein Phele naa Aaya re?

Well, that’s what the company seems to portray, and ‘Yes’ we at GD are not in doubt with their effort because truly the Selfies do look like they have never have been seen before in the new Vivo V5 Plus.

Magical Clicks:

Front camera – 20MP + 8 MP has got

‘Bokeh effect’ – Which separates you from the background and vice versa giving a perfect snap of whatever you want in the foreground or background. Moonlight Glow with flash for magnetic night selfies.

Rear camera – 16 MP with LED Flash may lack the punch which it’s Rear sibling has but still is very good though not great. Video recording of 4k is always welcomed and it doesn’t disappoint.

If someone thinks ‘OPPO the selfie expert’ has competition then have you ever heard or seen a company creating competition within its own domain, Well that’s what BBK the Chinese electronics company seems to have done as by giving run for its money to its own child specializing in selfies with its another child VIVO. In fact, ONE PLUS is also their produce.

But what is flabbergasting to many especially in the subcontinent where COST comes first rest can follow, how come ‘Selfie expert’ and ‘Best selfies’ phone has a difference of more than 10k when all the other specs are the almost the same.

Specifications which bring a Smile 

Micro USB port


4GB RAM with 64 GB storage

5.5 inch IPS Full HD display with 2.5D Corning Glass

Screen sharp and bright even in sunlight.

Single Home button with Finger Print reader

2 Nano-sim cards facility

Full Metal body (In the end we all use Covers just like our needs clothes for protection unless a bodybuilder wants to show off but then they are a rare breed).Review: Vivo V5 Plus

Specs which turns your experience Bittersweet

No Android NOUGAT (Technically Out of the box always makes a difference than upgrading).

3055 mah Battery should have been a notch higher with all the multitasking weight and pressure put on and though ‘Bigger the better’ may be a debatable somewhere? but is a sure shot in the mobile world.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SOC is a smooth processor and gives you a no glitch experience but only acceptable below 20k.

No WIFI 802.11 ac

No FM Radio


Dilemma or Contradiction

What we were dwindling upon another aspect was that when selfies are the most relevant in today’s times and are the unprecedented craze among mobile users across all continents and beyond as even Astronauts haven’t been untouched, so if it’s priced a little high why such hue and cry.

Finally – Do you want to look like HRITIKReview: Vivo V5 Plus

through the Selfie expert or as RANVEER the Perfect selfie, Review: Vivo V5 Plusclearly depends on how much you can shell out but just marketing thought for the company ‘Better looker’ as brand costing lesser but maybe the ‘Current craze’ is always the consideration.

Should you buy it – Yes if have the mollah of 28000k to the dish, doesn’t matter if the majority crib.
