During our first field test with the Vivo V5 we had problems with its camera. It take good photos on well lit situations but when the light became a bit short, the photos became grainy and a bit blurred even with the selfie light turned on. Then we had two major software updates and photos have improved.
Photos you are about to see here came from both front and back cameras.
First, here are the selfie photos before the Vivo V5 updates.The left side is from the OPPO F1s and the right is from the Vivo V5
Here are the selfie photos taken after the update from the Vivo V5
Here are the other photos taken from both phones.
We will be doing more tests for the Vivo V5 for our full review. Feel free to place your comments below about your thoughts on both phones and its camera quality. We pass the ball to you on who is better based on camera.
MERRY CHRISTMAS fellow techies! 🙂
