Chinese manufacturer Vivo unveiled its smartphone Vivo X5Max last year. This was the world’s slimmest smartphone (4.75mm profile), displaying a few stunning features. However, in terms of battery, it had a downside as many users complained that with 2000mAh, it wasn’t juicy enough to sustain regular use.
Although this compromise was made due to the thinness of the device, the phone was criticized for overheating issues nevertheless. So, Vivo improved its phone by slightly increasing the thinness up to 5.1mm to accommodate a 2300mAh battery pack. The new device, named the Vivo X5 Max+ has many features similar to its predecessor.
The Vivo X5 Max+ sports a 5.5 inch 1080p HD display and has a 13MP shooter at the back while a 5MP snapper is spotted at the front. The phone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat OS and is priced the same as the Vivo X5 Max – CNY 2998 or €430. However, it features a different chipset. While the X5Max was powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, the X5Max+ packs an octa-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 processor.
Also, the device has 16GB of internal storage which is expandable through a microSD card and is equipped with 2GB of RAM. Connectivity options on the handset include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB and USB OTG.
