The Vivo V5 I use so far is good, almost no lag, no complaint. Music OK, video playing OK, internet, YouTube, are OK too. I don't concern much for camera result, simple user.
For everyday use, multitasking, games (not heavy games), Vivo V5 is good choice. Price maybe experience, but in my opinion, the price is OK.
For price, around USD 262 in Indonesia region (assumed USD 1 = IDR 13.352).
I don't know if there is different thing on Vivo smartphone in other countries or not, but my Vivo V5 is fine till now.
I also would keep updating if there is something wrong or something new on my phone.

I think the battery life little less good. At the time 03:00 when I began to sleep, my Vivo V5 battery was 98%, connected to WiFi and standby on, after I wake up on around 08:15, the battery life was 88%.
By the way, I like the performance of Vivo V5 so far. Even people said old chipset, MediaTek or other mention, for me Vivo V5 satisfies me enough, no complaint. For battery life good enough (in the rank section, inside iManager app, the phone is used for 20h 32m from 100% till now 26%) charging length time is good in software version (3.2.3).

Hi. I bought vivo v5 few weeks before.
Superb phone. I am loving it. This one is my 2nd vivo phone.
In v5 everything is super smooth. But when i re-open the mp3 player after refreshing the phone it takes hell lot of time. I do have vivo v1 and vivo y31. But the problem is only in v5.
Cant it be fixed..?

My Vivo V5 (Indonesia region) had been tested by myself, so far streaming YouTube app several minutes or more, works fine, play music/ringtone using iMusic works fne, stream movie in a website using Chrome also works fine. Seeing videos inside Facebook app also works fine. Overall work fine.

Second, if the problem is persistent, I do factory reset. Third, all I do doesn't make the phone better and it keep acting bad, I would try to ask the service center of the phone's brand.

Hi. I'm new to this site. I just had to post because of my phone. Vivo V5. I bought it just last sunday May 6, its performance was good until i went to the videos to watch a movie, it didn't work as i expected. Especially for a brand new 4GB Ram android. It'll either, play for a bit then stop, or play without the screen on and just sound and worst it won't play at all. Please help me to resolve what action should i do with thi issue. Thank you.
Jass, 07 May 2017Which phone is best for battery backup or camera Many brands and models in the market of smartphones. Maybe you could see Lenovo P2, Samsung A9 Pro or Asus Zenfone 3 Max.

I had ever used Sony (Xperia mini, Xperia TX, Xperia Z), Samsung (Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Note II), LG (Optimus G, G2), Xiaomi (Redmi 2, Mi 4c), Motorola (RAZR XT910), huawei (P8lite), Nokia (6730 Classic, Lumia 520), even BlackBerry (Z10) and Vivo V5, never experienced battery life drain from 95% to zero in 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes or 120 minutes.

waste phone i have ever seen.
My Vivo V5 play music or ringtones normally. I tried default music come in the box, named Fiancé.flacc (by Su-jer) length 4:01, from 0 to 4:01 it played fine, no stop automatically and after 4:01, the i Music will replay again. If I add 1 ringtone for example music game named Dream of the Shore Near Another World (by Yasunori Mitsuda). After it played Fiancée, it will play automatically played Dream of the Shore Near Another World ringtone, vice versa. Overall works normal.
I don't know why if your device have that problem. Maybe you could consult Vivo Service Center to make sure if there is software or hardware problem.
Or..... maybe there is 3rd party app in your device that block music/video play. In internet also there was user used Samsung S4 experience music stop automatically, the culprit is (other user experienced) Bellman app. It is just an example.
My Vivo V5 so far is good, I don't activate Google voice Google Now. Other apps like Facebook, Twitter, BBM, WhastApp, LINE, emulator game, no suspicious apps.
