  • The total screen on time is 5 hours and 42 minutes.
  • On daily basis the battery delivered nicely, getting us through the whole day.
  • The total charging time from 0 to 100% is 3 hours which is just too much.


  • The handset runs Android 5.0 which is pretty common now-a-days.
  • The handset has Funtouch user interface.
  • Clearly the interface lacks a lot of things.
  • The device is a complete bloatware. There are many features but only some of them are useful.
  • There is a selection of pretty wallpapers.
  • The feature of making gesture to open an app is also present.
  • The call quality of the handset is good. Mice will get through clear voices at the other end. Speaker is also loud.

The package will include:
  • Vivo X5 Pro
  • Quick guide

The device is good for casual users who do not have many expectations from their phone. Vivo X5 pro is very attractive to the eyes but the performance is simply mediocre, other devices in the same price range offer much more. The camera is also not good enough for mobile photography. The battery drains quickly. Not many good features but it is stylish no doubt about that.
