vivouser0000, 09 Mar 2018i'm a heavy user and plays game alot on my v5 plus. before updating to nougat my battery alway... moreI am inline with your comments.
I don't no why some people are so afraid to update to Nougat. The latest OTA update with android 7.1.2 update is a very stable update, great performance, even better battery life. However my V5 Plus never stops while playing Youtube or games. I had played Asphalt 8 on this phone with highest setting for more than 1 hour... and never did it abruptly stopped.
I bought mine at a heavily discounted price which was on par with Xiaomi Mi A1 on that time, still I preferred Vivo due to following reasons:
1) Supports fast charging
2) Supplied with 18 watts fast charger
3) Comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 display protection
4) A more compact phone than A1, both having 5.5 inch 1080p displays
5) Better build quality than A1.
6) Better network reception than A1.
drxmukesh, 03 Feb 2018I purchased vivo v5 plus on 1st Feb 18, phone is pretty good no hang no heating should I updat... morei'm a heavy user and plays game alot on my v5 plus. before updating to nougat my battery always overheating and draining really fast in just few hours. but after update it does not overheat and the battery last longer than before. still fast charge as usual. but i notice when u take screenshot and send it to someone and u view it again it gets blurry. its not like before. i dont know about others phone but mine became like that. and when im watchin youtube or playing game it suddenly stopped and go back to my front screen. but whats important to me is battery. so i guess it doesnt bother me much. im hoping there will be face unlock feature in next update.
I heard about miui 10 going to release via ota for many mi devices, and Android P is going to launch in recent forthcoming days.Then what about Vivo,no new features(like on v7,v7 plus), no new funtouch os, no oreo upto now.what is this??????
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2018Rishi,do oreo update will come or not? Very unlikely.

Vivo updates are very stable and my phone with the latest update is most stable. Fast charging support is there and no battery drain.

Anonymous, 06 Feb 2018Battery drains about 300mah with 18h phone remains idleMine too. Since updated to nougat 7.1.2, the battery drains too fast and there is no quick charging at all. It took almost 30 minutes to reach 30% charging, I found it suddenly heating as well. This is to compared before it was updated. I am a Vivo user since 2015 with Vivo x5. Sadly, v5plus not so impressive compared to x5. Vivo really dissappointing me.
drxmukesh, 05 Feb 2018Thanks for reply,i purchased 15.6 K INR from Tata cliq,missed the offer of 10 percent discount... moreI bought my Vivo V5Plus @ INR 14k from Paytm Mall during the Diwali offer period. 20% instant discount by Paytm + 10% from ICICI Credit Card made a very lucrative deal that for me was hard to resist. V5Plus main challenger is Xiaomi Mi A1, and to me Vivo is the better phone.
RishiGuru, 03 Feb 2018I live in India, and was able to buy the V5Plus at around $220 online during an offer period. Thanks for reply,i purchased 15.6 K INR from Tata cliq,missed the offer of 10 percent discount payment through axis bank debit credit card

Even with heavy usage my phone still lasts for 1.5 days. We also have fast charging, V5Plus charging 0 to 80% in an hour with the supplied charger. Very happy with the phone.
