Unboxing / Accessories
|It includes most of the basic accessories you'll need on a new smartphone|
The package is near complete!
Build Quality / Design
|The design is very close to the regular V5|
Construction is mostly plastic, but it is protected with a good type of TPU case and tempered glass!
The body should be good enough to withstand moderate abuse and prevent hairline scratches on the screen. We're glad that Vivo included a free case and pre-installed tempered glass to make sure.

2. The MT6750 chip is proven to be decent in performance (for the price) for the regular V5, we expect the same performance with this "Lite" variant.
3. The main camera has a pro mode w/ up 16 seconds shutter adjustment for long exposures. The selfie camera appears to be as good as advertised. In our initial test, its focus speed and accuracy is better than V5 and doesn't produce blurry photos from time to time even on my shaky hands.
4. Unlike the rest of the V-series of Vivo, we confirmed that the V5 Lite doesn't have HiFi chip inside.
5. The fingerprint scanner was replaced with the traditional non-lit Android keys to keep the cost down. Gladly, OTG still works and there's LED notification in front.

As of the momentOn first look, this Vivo V5 is shaping up to be a real selfie contender even with its more affordable price tag. If you don't need a fingerprint scanner and you can live-up with a slightly lower 3 GB of RAM, this device is looking very good by far.
