Here’s A Stellar Rose Gold Phone That Takes Great Photos & It’s Not The iPhone

Ever since smartphone cameras were introduced to the mass market, people no longer lug around their DSLRs because first of all, it’s heavy; secondly, what for (unless your a professional)? With better camera quality comes a higher price to pay, and we’re not about that life. While affordable alternatives help make life easier for us, we have to compromise on quality (i.e blurry photos). But why not step up your Instagram game with an upgrade that’s not only easy on your wallet, but is an overall better quality choice than most devices out there?

The Vivo V5 and Vivo V5Plus gives exactly that, and more. What you get with the V5 and V5Plus are nice big screens so viewing everything becomes seamless. The star of the show would have to be the phones’ impressive 20-megapixel front camera with 8- megapixel sensors that captures depth-of-field information, allowing you take stellar selfies even in low light. In a less technical term, you get excellent front camera quality which is great for the peeps out there who never seem to be able to get a good shot when in darker areas. Let’s face it, the only time you need to take to a good selfie in the dark is when you’re busy hanging out with friends. So now you can post proof that the party was awesome in clear, high definition photos and videos.

As part of the whole millennial pink trend that’s been taking over the world by storm (and our closets to be honest), rose gold is the sister shade we go for because almost everyone – and by everyone we mean fashionistas – knows that this is the ‘IT colour’ of our dreams. Keeping up with the trends, the Vivo V5 has a sleek exterior wrapped in shimmery pink metallic outer with gold detailing around the home button and the sides. Think pink and use your rose gold Vivo V5 as an accessory to complement your day-to-day outfit like how Vivo Ambassador Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza does.


For aesthetics sake, the front camera provides a Softlight function so your selfies will always appear flawless, that means you get instant beautification and vivid shots of colour. As for the ladies, no highlighter is needed on your face thanks to the V5 and V5Plus’ Moonlight Glow function, which creates lighting effects similar to a professional studio setting for that ‘wow’ effect. Co-engineered with Sony, the phone’s camera lens emits a bokeh effect that’s comparable to large aperture cameras. Getting all that in one luxurious looking device sounds unrealistic, but it is possible. Priced at only RM1,699, the Vivo V5Plus is a major steal. For the price that you are paying for, you will also get 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, making it a powerful device that carries a long-lasting battery, fingerprint recognition, and a smart-split function on screen that allows you to watch videos while texting. The V5 however, is priced at RM1,299 and carries the same functions but with 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM. It seriously doesn’t get any cooler than this.

At the moment, the rose gold edition is only available for the Vivo V5. Visit the official website to know more about the Vivo V5Plus. Get updates on Vivo Malaysia’s Facebook page here
