But, the phone does offer a list of great specs but will a user actually go for the device and will he be willing to pay that much for the device? That said, let’s take a look at its features.
Vivo Xplay 5 Elite features:
Vivo Xplay5 Elite smartphone came up in March 2016 with a 5.43-inch capacitive touchscreen display and 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels.

Vivo Xplay 5 Elite specs and features which will benefit you:
The Vivo Xplay 5 Elite’s ultra slim body of 7.6 mm is easier to carry around. Moreover, it sure is quite good to look at. The display is Super AMOLED which offers reduced power consumption as well as a great battery life. A big 5.43-inch display is great for the vibrant colours production at 541 ppi pixel density.
The high-resolution camera on the device features auto focus and other usual camera effects for clear and sharp images. Addition of dual LED flash enables great photos even at night time. Plus, the camera features UHD video recording at 2160p@30 fps.
Besides that, you get a Quad-core CPU processor running a clock speed of 2.2 GHz which is quite fast and smooth. Addition of 6 GB of RAM enables it to be flawless at multitasking and heavy gaming. Availability of 3G and 4G gives the phone high-end connectivity support for fast downloading, streaming, and browsing. You can also use Wi-Fi and Hotspot for connecting with other devices and sharing internet and content. Navigational support, NFC, and the provision of a 3.5 mm headphone jack gives it better connectivity.

The Vivo Xplay 5 Elite features that you might have to think of twice:
While the positive aspects of the phone are great. There are certain features which might make you think twice before going for this phone. The first thing to note is that the phone is quite heavy. Even though it is a slim device, it still has a weight of 167 g which is heavy and can make your hand tired while holding it at times. Another disadvantage is that it does not support an expandable slot. You only get an internal memory of 128 GB which is great. But, if you run out of that, then you are bound to be disappointed.
For such a highly-priced device, we expected it to offer a diversified connectivity option. But, you cannot connect the Vivo Xplay 5 Elite to a TV. This is quite frustrating for the users who wanted to use it for a bigger screen. Another thing that is missing is an FM radio. You will not be able to browse radio station channels. The 3,600 mAh battery is a non-removable one. This is a concern as if the phone freezes somehow, it will be difficult to restart the device without taking out the battery. Replacement of battery is also not possible on the device on your own.
It feels strange to see a company brining up a device at such a high budget. The Xplay5 Elite price in India is Rs. 44,990 which is way too much for the available features on the device. Most of these features can be found on other devices which are at a way lower budget. But, it is up to the users if they want to use this device for their day-to-day purposes.
