The price of the device is PHP 12,990 ($261). It is believed that this smartphone could dominate the sales this December, knowing that many consumers these days will go through such lengths just to get the perfect selfie. Now that has been said, let's compare the Vivo V5 specs and features with the Google Pixel which is known for its high-end camera. Specs and features are based on GSM Arena.
Vivo V5 versus Google Pixel

I will give this round to the Vivo V5.

Google Pixel's OS is Android OS, v7.1 (Nougat), the chipset is Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 821, and CPU is Quad-core (2x2.15 GHz Kryo & 2x1.6 GHz Kryo). I think I'm going to give this round to the Google Pixel.

The tally is Vivo V5 with 2 wins and Google Pixel with 5 wins. In terms of overall specs, Google Pixel wins. However, if one's focus is for pictures and videos alone, then the Vivo V5 is the go-to phone. Personally, I have not yet heard of a smartphone with a 20 MP front camera. If there is, then please do tell me about it in the comment section. As of now, I agree that the Vivo V5 is the best selfie phone in the world.
