Whether you are a millenial or (trying to qualify as one) you just have to be on  Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account.

Either by choice or necessity,  social media has become part of our daily lives whether your purpose is to just chronicle your daily activities or let everyone know whats keeping you busy. Posting and sharing pictures with your new tops, makeups, or even plain exercising in the gym has become the new norm.

If you don’t take a selfie during your vacation, eat out at a restaurant with your friends, celebrating a special day, it is almost as if it never happened. And for that you need a phone that can perfectly capture the moment.

Vivo Philippines finally launched the Vivo V5 Plus in a star-studded event last January 21 at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium.

The perfect selfie phone is the newest flagship model of Vivo, the top five global smartphone premium brand1, ideal for today’s selfie age, when millennials and even adults enjoy sharing beautifully-captured self-shots with the world of social media.

Basketball superstar Stephen Curry is the official endorser of all Vivo phones, including the Vivo V5 Plus. The NBA star earlier said he believes in the brand’s values—energy, professionalism and pleasure—all embodied in its newest flagship model.

Full specifications of the much-awaited selfie phone were released during the much-awaited launch.

Vivo V5 Plus has the most advanced selfie-technology to date. Equipped with what is, so far, the most advanced selfie technology, Vivo V5 Plus has the world’s first-ever dual front-facing cameras. The primary front camera, a 20-megapixel IMX376, was co-engineered with top electronics company, Sony, while the secondary 8-megapixel camera was designed to collect depth-of-field information for improved self-portrait quality.

The Vivo V5 Plus boasts an advanced selfie technology that features a ‘bokeh’ effect—a background-blurring photography filter. This is complemented by Vivo’s enhanced face beauty algorithm that allows users to take radiant selfies with no need for editing or correction, and ‘selfie soft light’ which makes selfie-taking possible even in poor lighting conditions.

As for its rear camera, Vivo V5 Plus features an impressive 1/2.8-inch 16-megapixel sensor for ultra-clear and high-quality photos.

Sound, speed and style
Aside from its stunning camera features, the Vivo V5 Plus boasts a superior sound system, using the same Hi-Fi system of Vivo’s recent flagship models, and perfected in over two years—the AK4376.

Equipped with 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, the new Vivo model is capable of performing multiple phone tasks in a speedy and efficient manner. For a unique touch, the phone runs on Vivo’s very own Funtouch 3.0 operating system, based on Android 6.0.


  1. I'll bet you can't guess which muscle in your body is the muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and excessive fat.

    This "hidden primal muscle" is in your body and it will boost your energy, immune system, sexual performance, strength and athletic skill when unlocked.

  2. Very cool design. I like the fact that you used several mediums for the design. I have seen many with buttons and many with pearls, but not very often do you see it well done with both. If you ever need a vivo mobile cover for your next expensive handset, feel free to check us out. Thanks again for the great post.
