Vivo Xplay 5


Design and Display

This beauty shows off a solid and durable construction. The body of the Vivo Xplay 5 is made entirely of metal fitting of a high-end device. The face is protected by tough, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

Users are in for awesome gaming and movie watching time when you consider the 5.43-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display the phone is fitted with. The stunning display has dual curved edges.


The Vivo Xplay 5 is regally decked out in the camera department as well. It comes with a robust 16-megapixel rear camera made by Sony. The shooter features fast phase detection autofocus and dual-tone LED flash.

As if the primary camera is not impressive enough, the phone’s Chinese maker also provided a robust 8-megapixel sensor on the front for spectacular selfies.
