The display is a Super AMOLED unit measuring 5.43 inches diagonally and featuring dual curved edges. This impressive touchscreen boasts Quad HD resolution and looks to rival that of the Samsung S7 Edge.

The Cameras

You should expect the Vivo Xplay 5 Elite to serve up spectacular shots you’d love to share with others given what it comes with. The handset rocks a powerful 16-megapixel Sony-made camera with phase detection autofocus and dual-tone LED flash on the rear.

The 8-megapixel front-facing snapper is no doubt a generous offering for selfie takers as well.

Power and Performance

The Vivo Xplay 5 Elite is configured to deliver a level of performance that should rival that of some heavyweights on the market. It is driven by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor that can be found on new flagships such as the Samsung S7 and LG G5.

The heavy-duty CPU is given backing by a jaw-dropping 6 GB of RAM (yes, you read that right). Obviously, this phone is well decked out to justify its price tag.

The smartphone runs on Android 6 (Marshmallow). This will be coated with Vivo’s Funtouch user interface which offers split-screen multitasking support. Juice will be supplied by a 3,600mAh battery.

Other Features

You get a whopping 128 GB of non-extendable internal storage – this in itself should be sufficient for the needs of majority of users. The Vivo Xplay 5 Elite has a fingerprint sensor on the rear for added security.
