Vivo V5s Cons-5 Reasons for not to Buy

Demerits or disadvantages of Vivo V5s mentioned below are subjective. It is based on the availability of features on other smartphones in the similar price tag.

  • 720p Display panel: Vivo V5s comes with 5.5 inch IPS LCD panel with 1280×720 pixel resolution. Colors, viewing angles, sunlight legibility are good. But overall sharpness with around 267 ppi pixel density not impressive when compared with other 1080p resolution displays on Moto G5 Plus, Redmi Note 4 etc.
  • No Android Nougat Out of the box: Now new smartphones started coming with Android Nougat which is the latest version.  This means that, one need to wait for the updates. It would have been great if it was shipped with Android 7.0 out of the box.
  • Average rear camera performance: Vivo V5s comes with 13MP rear camera with LED flash. In day light conditions it takes decent photos, but in low light and artificial lighting condition performance way below than Moto G5 Plus.
  • Average gaming performance:  Vivo V5s is powered by 1.5 GHz Octa Core MediaTek MT6750 SoC with Mali-T860MP2 GPU and 4GB of RAM. This is the same configuration we have seen on Vivo V5. There was no noticeable lag in basic usages. However, it struggles in gaming sections. Stuttering and frame drops were observed while playing games like Asphalt 8. Casual games performance was decent.
  • Slightly over priced: Vivo V5s is a king when it comes to selfie department. However, when looking into overall performance, Rs.18,990 feels bit over priced.

These are some of the Vivo V5s cons according to us. Choosing smartphone depends on the user priorities. Knowing the demerits of a device helps to know on what to expect from the device. Please share your thoughts on Vivo V5s in the comment section below.
