Mobile companies have been proactive since there has been constant change in technology, design and overall user experience. Every company wants to launch a product which is better than the product of competitors. But sometimes, companies offer two identical products with minute differences and then it becomes really difficult to compare both the products. Vivo has launched Vivo V5 & Vivo V5 Plus at Rs. 15,120 & Rs. 24,499 respectively.
Vivo V5 was launched in November 2016, while Vivo V5 Plus was launched in January 2017. Let’s look upon the differences in specifications and add-on features of both the products:

Vivo V5 Plus offers 16 MP rear cameras while Vivo V5 offers 13 MP rear cameras. Vivo V5 Plus outshines Vivo V5 Plus on the parameters of front camera since it offers 20 MP front camera Plus 8 MP front dual cameras as compared to only 20 MP front camera of Vivo V5. LED flash integrated in Vivo V5 Plus camera is an added feature that lacks in Vivo V5.
- Connectivity –
Both Vivo V5 and Vivo V5 Plus support 4G connectivity but Vivo V5 Plus doesn’t support VoLTE which makes Vivo V5 automatic choice for Reliance Jio users.
- Processor and graphics –
While Vivo V5 offers Octa core, 1.5 GHz, Cortex A53 processor and Mali-T860 MP2 graphics, Vivo V5 Plus gets an edge since it offers Octa core, 2 GHz, Cortex A53 processor and Adriano 506 graphics.
- Storage –
While Vivo V5 offers 32GB internal memory expandable up to 128 GB, Vivo V5 Plus offers 64 GB internal memory but it isn’t expandable so Vivo V5 gets an edge over Vivo V5 Plus.
- FM Radio –
One slight difference but which may prove to very important for FM lovers is the fact that FM radio can’t be tuned in on Vivo V5 Plus. So for all FM music lovers, Vivo V5 is the choice.
As far as parameters like touch screen, rear camera flash and operating system is concerned, both Vivo V5 and Vivo V5 plus stands on the same position. But since most of the times, Vivo V5 offers better specifications than Vivo V5 plus and it is cheaper than the latter, hence Vivo V5 becomes an automatic choice. But for group selfie lovers, Vivo V5 Plus with 8 MP front dual cameras will impress them.
