What’s the best selfie phone?It’s the Groufie phone!!

It’s a well known fact that  Filipino’s love taking selfies…. or most accurately.. Groufies with friends and family..

Before, one of the main things people looked for in a smartphone was it’s camera size… how many megapixels.. since the size often dictated the quality of the picture.. the higher the megapixels.. the better pictures… Now.. an additional qualification for cameras that people look for is the ability to put more people inside the shot.. and that’s exactly where the Vivo V5s is killing it.

Imagine a phone with a 20 megapixel camera and a f2.0 aperture, all for only P14,990.

But the newest and most exciting feature of the V5s is the Group Selfie technology, which allows panoramic and up-close panning effects in “groufies” or group shots, without squeezing in our missing out anyone in the barkada.

This new feature’s portrait and landscape orientations likewise help capture outdoor ‘groufies’ or family portraits without needing to squeeze in or cut out anyone.

The V5s’ 20-MP sensor guarantees that the smallest of details can be captured in your selfies. The light-sensing area is larger than usual at 1/2.78 inch. This allows more light to come in which in turn enhances photo brightness.

The rear facing camera is no slouch either with a 13 megapixel lens and a f2.2 aperture and an ultra-high-definition mode that can render stunning ultra HD images of up to 52 megapixels.

Other features of the V5s are the following:

Selfie Soflight

Face Beauty 6.0,

2.5D Corning Gorilla glass


64GB internal memory

Hi-Fi music technology

0.2-second fingerprint unlocking.
