The bezels at the front are really thin and look very nice. At the back panel, we can see a good glossy color finish which is really pleasing to the eyes. We can also see Quad rear camera setup at the back which are all fitted in a diamond shape module located in the middle. We also can see the company logo at the bottom middle of the phone written vertically and followed by a straight line that goes up to the camera module.
At the right edge, we can find volume rockers and a power button whereas a speaker grill, Type-C port and Sim tray at the bottom edge and 3.5mm headphone jack at the top edge.

Performance, Software, Storage
To deliver performance, Vivo S5 is equipped with Snapdragon 712 chipset, octa-core processor, Adreno 616 as GPU and 8GB of RAM which all runs on Android 9.0 Pie skinned with Funtouch 9.2. The chipset is not the latest from Qualcomm but this chipset can also do all the works. The gaming performance and high graphics work can be done but not as smooth as with the latest chipsets. Funtouch 9.2 also needs a lot of work to be done, especially on its icons which feels odd.

This battery can provide juice for a day in normal use and if sometimes it’s juice drains because of heavy usage, gaming or doing high graphics work than its juice can be refilled really quick from its 22.5W fast battery charging feature. So, the battery and its juice won’t be a problem at all.
