Take the Perfect Selfie Using the Impressive Vivo V5 Plus, Endorsed by Stephen Curry

Who wants to look good in pictures? Of course, we all do! No wonder smartphone makers are constantly upping the ante when it comes to the latest in camera technology. This past weekend, Vivo Philippines unveiled the Vivo V5 Plus in a star-studded event at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium where everyone was impressed at the new phone's capabilities.

In today's social media age where both millennials and adults enjoy taking and sharing beautifully-captured selfies online, Vivo responds to this need by launching its newest flagship model: the perfect selfie phone.

"We are excited to bring selfie to the next level. Our latest innovation not only provides high-quality audio but also gives the perfect selfie that everyone deserves," shared Vivo Vice President Hazel Bascon in her opening remarks. "Also, we are very proud to once again announce that Vivo is still the top five global smartphone manufacturer. This is for four consecutive quarters based on the International Data Corporation's 2016 Smartphone Tracker."

Vivo endorser, NBA superstar Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, was quoted saying he believes in the brand's values -- energy, professionalism, and pleasure -- which are all embodied in the Vivo V5 Plus. Finally, after months of speculation, the most-awaited selfie phone's full specifications were revealed:

1) Vivo V5 Plus has the most advanced selfie-technology to date with the world's first-ever dual front-facing cameras. Co-engineered with top electronics company, Sony, the primary front camera is a 20MP IMX376 while the secondary 8MP camera was designed to collect depth-of-field information for that improved self-portrait quality.

I was fascinated at the "bokeh" effect feature, a background-blurring photography filter that is complemented by Vivo's enhanced face beauty algorithm. Both allow users to take radiant selfies without any need for editing or correction after. In addition, there's the "selfie soft light" which makes selfie-taking possible even in poor lighting conditions.

2) Vivo V5 Plus' rear camera likewise features an impressive 1/2.8-inch 16MP sensor for ultra-clear and high-quality photos. I'd love to test drive that when I go on trips this year! I think I'll be able to take crisper and more colorful photos of my favorite sunsets and nature scenes.

3) Vivo V5 Plus boasts a superior sound system for heightened enjoyment of any kind of music. The AK4376 was perfected in over two years and is the same Hi-Fi system also found in Vivo's recent flagship models.  

4) Vivo V5 Plus is capable of performing multiple phone tasks in a speedy and efficient manner thanks to its 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. For a unique touch, this smartphone runs on Vivo's very own Funtouch 3.0 operating system, based on Android 6.0.

5) Vivo V5 Plus also features an updated fingerprint recognition technology that allows users to unlock the phone in just 0.2 seconds. The phone also boasts of a fast-charging feature that I am sure heavy phone users would appreciate a lot.

6) Vivo V5 Plus is beautifully crafted and easy to hold. The ultra-slim bezel technology comes with a 5.5-inch large display made of 5th generation Corning Gorilla glass with enhanced resistance. Too, the dome-style, 1.8mm wide u-shaped antenna designed for better signal reception adds to the phone's stylish exterior design.

these two definitely made their fans go wild (my eardrums are still ringing!) 
The V5 Plus launch was graced by Vivo executives and partners as well as celebrities and members of the media. Singer KZ Tandingan and Pinoy Boyband Superstars' Tony Labrusca and James Ryan Cesena were present to entertain guests with musical performances.

According to Ms. Bascon, in their pursuit of innovation and perfection, "Vivo is now expanding our research and development centers to seven. Our latest R and D centers will be in Silicon Valley and San Diego and this direction is geared towards our desire to give the best and unique experiences to our consumers." 

Vivo V5 Plus is priced at P19,990

Ms. Bascon furthered pronounced, "We at Vivo Philippines are dedicated to the Filipino consumers and rest-assured that we will expand and continue to cover the entire country so that more will be able to experience the best technology for smartphone."
