Anonymous, 07 May 2017Shall i buy this phone or redmi note 4 or oppo f1sBy seeing the specification, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is better.
Just watch once before buying this phone...
I would give my experience using many smartphones.
1. One thing that we (users) should know is all phones have plus and minus
2. In 2011 I used Sony Ericsson xperia mini ST15i. First time unboxing, the phone was problem, act weird, it refused to do unlock screen, almost everytime I tried unlock, it refused. The internet said it was overheating problem, the solution was to do root and installed Gscript. I did the tutorial, it was fixed. In 2014 I used Sony Xperia TX, that Xperia TX also problem, I experienced twice the screen blank off itself, but it was active, could receive notifications, I decided to sell it at that because I knew the Sony Service Center is bad, the phone would be treated as like person in hospital, sick and should stay at that place for several days or weeks or maybe months (many users wrote in newspaper about the bad of service).
3. Before I used Vivo V5, I used Xiaomi Mi 4c, I said Xiaomi Mi 4c was good, no problem, but... I dislike Chinese apps like Mi Live, Mi Appstore (useless, I prefer Google Play Store), and dislike apps with Chinese language. Because officially the rom didn't support Google Play Service, I should install Google apps one by one, but it still experienced little problem, such GPS was hard to do what I want, not accurate, little trouble when use GOJEK and Grab. Several users said install Europe rom, I didn't do that because I didn't unlock bootloader, it would void warranty (I am not technic guy or people who like and understand do custom rom or thing in smartphones). So, I sold Mi 4c after 4 months of used
3. Luckily I bought Vivo V5 so far no problem. Once I downgraded to 2.7.25 and now software version 3.2.3, better. I am OK with the charging can up to 3 hours. Based on my watching to my Vivo, I write every time I charged my phone. Software version 3.2.3 is better than 2.9.1. Other users said the charging time is 2.5 hours using fast charging. I don't buy that fast charging cable or USB. Usually the most I use is cable or charger default that come in the box of the phone. Overall, the phone is good, I no complaint.

Before I use Vivo V5, long time ago, from Sony Ericsson Xperia mini, Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Nokia Lumia 520, Sony Xoeria TX, LG Optimus G, Motorola RAZR XT910, Sony Xperia Z C6602 and other Android smarphones, I used the charger came in the box.
NikiDroid, 06 May 2017Yesterday my note about charging time:
May 6, 2017, began to charge 19:52 (25%) fully charg... moreIDK why or something wrong with your phone because with every firmware that I tried, the charging time is always full at 2.5 hrs no more ( start at around 0-20% ) with both fast charger and V5 charger.
Only in factory firmware 2.7.25 the charging time is faster with fast charger.
Yesterday my note about charging time:
May 6, 2017, began to charge 19:52 (25%) fully charge on 22:41. Almost 3 hours.
Inmy opinion, my Vivo V5 works better for charging time in software version 3.2.3.

Jack, 05 May 2017Hi I am using VIVO V5 from past 4 months . I could able to trace only one issue in the phone... moresame thing happened to me. I don't know how to resolve the issue that's why I've decided to reset my phone.

Used it for not more than 10 minutes calls, standby with data on, so the phone will receive any messages, notifications, emails.

My Vivo V5 I described is good, battery normal, but if I use internet, streaming or gaming intense, the battery will drain fast, other smartphones I guess will do the same.
