After Xiaomi launched the Mi5, another Chinese smartphone company, Vivo was making headlines last month for their new flagship device, the Xplay 5 Elite, the device packs almost the same hardware as the Mi5 but, the main reason why it was making such news because Vivo’s launched the world’s first smartphone to feature 6 gigs of RAM, even though, Vivo might not be a common smartphone brand name for everyone, but ever since the company released the device in China, it has caught everyone’s attention. Hopefully, the device will soon make its entry in the Indian market, and it will be priced around Rs 40-44K. Now, regarding the Xplay 5 Elite we are going to share the top 7 things which you might wanna know about this device.
So, here are the top 7 things to know about the Vivo Xplay 5 Elite-
The first thing to notice about the device is the design, it is the second device after the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge to feature a curved display, so when it comes to looks the device sure does look stunning, and it is one of the best-looking smartphone currently available in the market, now coming to the built quality, the metallic body at the back gives the device a premium look and feel, and the overall design of the device seems to be inspired from Apple’s iPhone 6S and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
At the back of the device, there is also a fingerprint sensor which the company claims to unlock the device within 0.4 seconds, making it one of the fastest fingerprint sensor available in the market, however, it will be really interesting to see how it performs in the long run.
The USP of the device is the hardware, under the metal body, the device packs a powerful Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, which is getting bundled with 6 Gigs of RAM, so basically this is a beast when it comes to performance, and as far as gaming is concerned, the Vivo XPlay 5 Elite bears an Adreno 530 GPU, so when it comes to gaming the device can handle any game through at it without displaying any kind lags or shutters.
At the back of the device, there is a large 3600 mAh battery, so when it comes to usage, the device can easily last a full working day for a heavy user, and in case in if you are an average user, then you can easily get a usage of 1-2 days, and thankfully, the device also supports fast charging, although, it will be interesting to see whether Vivo supplies a fast charger with device.
The Xplay Elite sports a 5.43 inch Super AMOLED display having a resolution of (1440×2560 p), the display looks really good, texts look very sharp and crisp courtesy of pixel density of ~541 ppi, the colors looks vibrant and rich, and the transition also looks very stunning thanks to dual edge curved display.
6.Dual Stereo speakers
Another thing to notice about the device is that the Xplay 5 Elite boasts dual stereo speakers, so the sound output offered by the device is really impressive, but due to its placing at the bottom, the sound can get easily muffled if you hold the device horizontally while playing games or watching movies.
As far as camera is concerned, the Xplay 5 Elite houses a 16 MP rear facing camera which is getting assisted by dual-tone LED flash, whereas, the front gets a 8 MP camera, now coming to the quality, the camera specs looks very good in paper but in reality it doesn’t perform up to the mark.
