Vivo S5 hands on review

In terms of appearance, vivo S5 does not adopt the previous S1 series design, because vivo S5 uses a 6.44inch 2400mm 1080 resolution AMOLED punching screen with an aperture size of only 2.98mm. The tiny screen opening makes the visual effect of vivo S5 more complete, and the screen ratio is as high as 91.38%.

The back cover uses a new coating process to create three vivid colors, namely, Icelandic Love Song, Phantom Blue and Phantom Black. Among them, individuals prefer Icelandic love song color matching, because Icelandic love song color matching gives people a younger and elegant feeling.

In addition, the back of vivo S5 is designed with 3D curved surface. In terms of grip, the body of vivo S5 is 157.9mm long, 73.92mm wide and 8.64mm thick, and its weight is controlled at 188g. Its overall size and weight are basically the same as those of vivo S1 Pro. It is comfortable to hold and has excellent visual sense with the 3D curve of Icelandic love song color matching.

The vivo S5 uses an innovative diamond camera arrangement that gives people a sense of symmetry visually. The vivo S5 camera module can not only see but also play. The vivo S5 uses a 48 million full-scene quad camera, of 48 million ultra-clear camera, 8 million-pixel ultra-wide-angle, 5 million-pixel depth-of-view virtual lens, and 2 million-pixel macro lens combination, making it easy to control multi-scene photography.

In our experience, the focus speed of the vivo S5 has been greatly improved and the imaging quality is also good. With the addition of ultra-wide-angle lens, we can get a 120-degree field of view. Vivo S5″s Super HDR has developed a light filling technology for backlit portraits, which maximizes the natural brightness of the characters and the clarity and completeness of the background details.

After talking about the rear camera module, vivo S5 is also equipped with a 32 million pixel high-definition camera and supports 5 super textured beauty, that is, a new generation of beauty program independently developed by vivo, which includes five beauty functions: radiant complexion, textured skin, vital makeup, intelligent beauty and refined facial features, which can be optimized exclusively for the five regions of the face. In addition, vivo also adds some practical functions for selfies, such as selfie portrait style, selfie posture and so on.

Vivo S5 also has three built-in selfie styles, the default “natural style” of the system, the “fresh” mode of sweet Japanese and Korean style, and the “film” mode with film style and virtual background. Users can choose the style they like according to their needs. Taking selfies as straight men is always distressing to find a suitable photo pose, while the new selfie pose in vivo S5 can help you take different photo poses, which can be said to be very practical for straight men like us. In the selfie pose, there are also some “idol” Cai Xukun photo pose eggs, favorite ikun can be sold out.

Finally, we also experienced the fingerprint unlocking and face recognition features of vivo S5. Officials announced that vivo S5 was equipped with vivo’s latest screen fingerprint technology. Vivo S5 doubled the fingerprint sensing area of the previous generation vivo S1 Pro, screen, increased the detection area by 27%, the dynamic range increased by 30%, and the fingerprint recognition speed was 0.38 seconds. The fingerprint unlocking speed of vivo screen measured in the field is 0.38s, which is true. Finally, when it comes to the face recognition function, we take selfies to see if we can deceive the face recognition function of vivo S5, but it turns out to be a failure. It seems that vivo S5 has done a solid job in terms of security.

On the core hardware configuration, the vivo S5 carries the platform. Qualcomm Snapdragon712 platform, Octa-Core architecture, 2.3GHz main frequency, multi-core artificial intelligence engine, AI and performance experience are more excellent.

In other aspects, the vivo S5 uses 4100mAh’s battery and supports 22.5 W vivo FlashCharge flash charge. what is the actual battery performance? since we have not carried out the actual test, as for the effect, we can pay attention to the later details of the PConline review.


On the whole, the advantage of vivo S5 lies in its good photo-taking ability, especially its five-weight and five-fold super-textured beauty developed by vivo, as well as selfie portrait style, selfie posture and other games, which also makes it competitive in products at the same price.

Finally, the next price, vivo S5 has 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB two versions to choose from, the corresponding price is 2698 yuan and 2998 yuan respectively, has opened the pre-sale, interested friends can understand.
