I far as I know Vivo have a lot of service centers through out India. Or are you suggesting Vivo does not have replacement battery?
I understand X5Max's sound quality over earphones is epic, and I cannot simply hear anymore to other ordinary smartphones.
Rishiguru, I live in Baroda, India. Getting an OEM battery is out of question here. Few compatible are available, which the service center will not touch and will have to be taken to a road side kiosk for fitting. I am not sure I will be able to enjoy my pristine music experience any more. I have not put any update so far in last 2 1/2 years. I saw price of V20 as 22.5k without B&O earpiece and 28.5K with it (V20a). As far as I know the price difference is only due to earpiece and the installed software.

Please help me apart from visiting the serv... moreAs far as I know to have the PD1408F_EX_B_2.2.3 software for Vivo X5Max you have to have a visit to their service center. This because this update will format all the internal memory, join the two memory partitions into one unified 16 GB, and then install the software. This is not possible by a OTA. However this update does not mess with the superb default music player with purple HiFi enable button. :)
I remember this update was previously available for download from their Global Vivo website. I don't know if it is available now. Please check. For battery also you have to visit the service center. Where do you live?

Vivo X5Max is still a benchmark when it comes to high fidelity sound in smartphones. This phone single handedly compelled me to drop all my prized HiFi portable music players. I have also found X5Max not suitable for very high impedance over the ear headphones. But it can very easily drive any audiophile earphones and all low impedance headphones like Edifier H840. On the other hand smartphones like LG V20 or Lenovo Vibe X3 have much powerful headphone amplifiers, as many as 3 for Vibe X3. So they are able to drive very high impedance headphones of over 300 ohms.
I own a Vibe X3 & have heard the V20 extensively, and both have formidable HiFi sound quality to boast. But to me both misses out by a notch in terms of the signature see-through ultra crystal clear sound of X5Max. Lets just say the sound signature tuning as done Vivo on X5Max just match my taste where vocals take the utmost priority.
To-> Rishi, GeekayRenjit, musicfan and others.. Please help me apart from visiting the service centre how can I update the software to PD1408F_EX_B_2.2.3 to solve the internal memory partition issue. As previously mentioned this is an MPT software and not available for download or OTG. How far I could upgrade the android kitkat (4.4.4) so that I should not be messing the default imusic player and licence issues of FLAC. Finally, shortly the battery may go kaput, where can I get a genuine battery and where the installation could be carried out.
i own both vivo x5 max and a lg v20 cleaner sound with big stage in x5 max while v20 will prove to hedphones champ in my audio tecnica m30 x v20 gets it to vibrate x5max struggles. if u listen to music via earphones go 4 x5max if headphone then lgv20.

I do not like it much either. I have no idea how Jays 5 sound but if amazon india reviews are to be followed they are not that good. I will say give Cowon EK2 or SounMagic E10 a try. They are cheap earphones with good audio performance and will not hurt your wallet.
However we are dealing with sound quality and its subjective analysis which will vary from person to person.

X5Max is Vivo`s flagship phone released in Jan, 2015 in India. If you have bought it for audio reasons get some decent audiophile grade in-ear earphones. However X5Max can drive many low impedance over the ear headphones like Edifier H840 with ease.
Just now i ordered Vivo x5max in amazon website for just 14990. What is difference between
Vivo x5max and vivo x5 max?.Because Vivo x5max price is 14990 and Vivo x5 max price is 32980.

This is an authentic website, anybody can download and install with their eyes closed. This will greatly benefit people who live in countries where Vivo have no presence.
After all in my eyes X5Max still remains as their most iconic flagship ever launched internationally. None of the other handsets l used like X5Pro, XShot, X3S, V1Max, V3Max have that feel or aura in it.
X5Max is also audiophiles nirvana. Only the Lenovo Vibe X3 & LG V20 can hold a candle to X5Max in terms sheer headphone audio quality.
