I admit that I take a lot of “selfie” whenever I go to different places, which is why I was not surprised when Makati claimed the title of “Selfie Capital of the World” from TIME Magazine back in 2014. And if you also love taking selfies like me, you might want to consider Vivo’s newest member of the perfect selfie V5 line – the Vivo V5s.
In a big reveal at SM North Edsa last May 19, Vivo launched the V5s as the newest perfect selfie phone that caters to the arising needs of millennials, working professionals, and people from all walks of life. With a 20-megapixel front camera with f2.0 aperture, the V5s gives you crystal clear, high-resolution selfies, wherein all the details are astonishingly visible. Its 13-megapixel rear camera with f2.2 aperture and an ultra-high-definition mode also renders stunning ultra HD images of up to 52 megapixels.
In addition to its high-end camera features and advanced selfie tools, the Vivo V5s brandishes an elegant and sleek design with slimmer bezels and finer details, with the U-shape cover lines making the back cover look even more premium.
True to its promise of producing clear and complete images that tell vivid stories, the V5s also brandishes the newest and exciting group selfie technology, which allows landscape-panning effects in ‘groufies’ or group shots. This new feature allows up-close panoramic landscape panning effects in capturing a group without squeezing in or missing anyone. It also supports both portrait and landscape orientations so that no one is left behind in barkada shots.
The stage is set for the much awaited big launch of the newest perfect selfie Vivo V5s smart phone, led by hosts Verniece Enciso and Nikko Ramos.
Vivo Philippines Vice President Hazel Bascon leads the launch of the new V5s phone and explains why this next big thing in the smartphone industry is the best choice for selfie lovers.

The V5s also features a selfie softlight technology that creates lighting effects similar to those in a professional photography studio, with an enhanced night mode for clearer and more fabulous selfies taken at night or even in poor lighting conditions. The V5s also includes a beauty mode 6.0 feature, which works like a skincare tool that automatically detects your gender and applies beauty touches accordingly.
The Vivo V5s is equipped with 5G-ready capacity for a more stable Internet connection—an upgrade from the 4G capacity of previous V5 units and other phones in the same price range. For its storage, the V5s also has a bigger capacity of 4GB RAM, perfect for games and applications, and a 64GB ROM—expandable up to 256 GB—that can store up to 302 films, 20000 songs or 26,000 pictures, and other documents.
Other notable features include a smart split 2.0 that enables the V5s to keep two tasks on screen at the same time, an eye protection mode that filters out all the blue light and makes the screen light softer, and a 0.2 fingerprint unlocking.
