When you think that a Blackview R7 is a quarter of the price then you realise how expensive Vivos are......?.?.

Its predecessor Vivo V3Max was launched at the same price, and then nobody bought it and Vivo was forced to reduce its price to INR 20k. :)
Same fate is going to happen to V5Plus. Within few months you will find the price tumble down below INR 20k. The market is so competitive now in India. Still I will not buy this phone for lack of memory expansion.

Is it better than V5 Plus ? I am planning a mid range phone upto 30k Indian rupees. I want a phone with smoother Android experience and a fairly good camera just like my iPhone 7 Plus. I am very happy with my 7 Plus in all aspects.

That was what Vivo tried to do by building their new factories in India. They are now assembling the Vivo V5 Plus in India. Hence their products should be available to the customer at much cheaper costs. However that is not the case with Vivo.
They are bringing the manufacturing cost down while rising the price of their phones in India. More alarmingly they are utilizing their huge profit margin per phone for ultra heavy marketing expenses. I am astonished by the level of marketing & advertisements Vivo is doing this year. It is as if they want to wrap my city with Vivo logo. :(
I would have preferred if they could spend they some amount of their profit in R&D and make their phone more easily accessible to customers at a much reasonable price.

IS IT WORTH IT??? help me decide.... moreIf you buy a phone primarily to take selfies, then V5 Plus is worth every penny. For everything else look out for Vivo V3Max as it is a far superior phone in performance terms and overall a better value for money.
Vivo V3Max = Snapdragon 652 + 4 GB RAM + 32 GB Internal memory + 256 GB memory card support + FullHD display + Great selfie camera = INR 19K (Price)
Vivo V5Plus = Snapdragon 625 + 4 GB RAM + 64 GB Internal memory + NO memory card support + FullHD display + Exceptional selfie camera = INR 28K (Price)
Vivo V3Max is a winner hands down. :)

You have a dual SIM tray accepting two nano sims. It is not a hybrid SIM slot like its predecessor Vivo V3 Max. The V5Plus model launched in India is the 4GB RAM/ 64 GB internal memory version of Vivo X9. So, Chinese X9 = International V5Plus. With V5 Plus you will get 49 GB of usable memory and thats it.
To me V5 Plus is a downgrade comparing to more performance oriented V3Max @ INR 19K. Except for the 20 MP selfie madness, I wonder why will ever people spill out INR 28K for V5 Plus when we have OnePlus 3T or ZTE Nubia Z11 available for INR 30K.
Vivo's pricing policy is a total farce to me.
Is there expandable memory slot ? Bcoz the local Vivo guy here told me that it does not support extra memory. But here in website it shows "Expandable Memory" upto 256GB ???
