Vivo V5 review

Solo Travel With Vivo V5: The First 20 Megapixel Front Moonlight Camera Phone

Planning a solo trip? You might want to consider carrying the Vivo V5 along. Let me tell you why.

In my recent Solo Travel experience, I discovered that although I am more of a family travel or group travel kind of person, I enjoy travelling solo at times too. My solo travel to Phuket, Thailand was proof that solo travel can be liberating and a big learning experience.

However, my only issue during Solo Trips is clicking my own pictures. I am no stranger to selfies, and even when my husband laughs at my “selfie problem”, I try an capture the memories in my camera. As a Travel Blogger, I try to click a lot of pictures of the destination I’m at. But when you’re solo, your selfies are mostly the only pictures you get of yourself.

Another big issue is the lighting. For a good selfie, you need good lighting and you can’t always get that, can you?

This is where the brand new Vivo V5 comes in, and steals the show.

The Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has recently launched the Vivo V5 smartphone with amazing features, the highlight being an impressive 20MP front camera that comes with a “Moonlight Glow” feature that allows users to take selfies in not-so-perfect lighting conditions.

The 20 Megapixel front camera is a pretty big deal, and it is the first ever 20 Megapixel front camera phone that ensures a good moonlight selfie.

What is a Moonlight Glow? Well, the Moonlight Glow is softer and natural, unlike the that makes pictures taken in dark look unnaturally white. The Moonlight Glow brightens up the face of the user by adding a natural glow and the flash doesn’t strain the eyes.

The V5’s Moonlight Selfie creates the lighting effects of a professional photography studio, giving you the soft radiant complexion of a supermodel for a beautiful picture-perfect image every time. There are numerous beautification features in the app that make selfies even better. These include everything from face slimming to skin tone correction.

Apart from the front camera, the Vivo V5 has a 13MP primary camera that gives a great output as well.

Something else I liked about the Vivo V5 is its Smart Screen Split. Similar to Android Nougat’s split-view multitasking, this will let you run two apps at the same time.

The Vivo V5 has a lot of solid features like:

  • It’s 5.5-inch HD display with 1280×720 pixels resolution
  • 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Sports 13MP rear camera
  • Water-Resistant Fingerprint Sensor on the front
  • AK4376 Hi-Fi Audio Chip that makes music another highlight of this phone!
  • 3,000mAh Battery

Vivo V5 is powered by Octa-Core 64-Bit processor paired up with 4GB of RAM, and it has an internal memory of 32GB that can be expanded up to 128GB via micro-sd card and runs on Funtouch OS 2.6 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.

So, take my advice and consider the new Vivo V5 as your travel partner to your next solo trip, and enjoy a perfect selfie with it’s 20 Megapixel front camera.

Happy Travelling!
