Taking photos is something I do almost everyday most especially when I am with my boyfriend, relatives and friends; because such moments are something I want to cherish. Unfortunately, not all the time there is someone who is willing to take a complete photo of us, hence, a selfie. That is why, when I heard about Vivo’s dual front-facing camera with 20-megapixel primary camera and 8-megapixel secondary camera, I got intrigued.

So here is what I think: design wise, it is surely handy with its thin frame and light body, and it looks sleek and smart with its 5.5-inch full HD. With regards of its dual-front camera, it does take amazing shots. Its Bokeh mode is remarkable too as it blurs the subject’s background really well and does not appear like an edited blur. However, I noticed that when taking group selfie, Bokeh mode is not that recommended as it also blurs some people that are part of the frame. Moreover, its Selfie Soft light mode that allows taking selfie even more possible in low lighting conditions works very well. On the other hand, its rear camera takes clear and crisp photos with its 16-megapixel camera most especially during daytime.

Overall, I think Vivo V5 Plus’ dual-front camera has a very good quality and performance. Having different effects and modes is also a plus point as they affect the image quality and outcome. There may be a few things to improve with the Bokeh mode, but it works very impressive with portrait and its automatic camera setting always got your back when it comes to group photos. Additionally, with the price of Php 19,990 this one is certainly worth it!
