The second slimmest smartphone in the world at this point, the Vivo X5 Max was a beauty with 4.75mm of thickness. For that thickness, it is obvious that one cannot see more battery than what Vivo has included in it – 2000 mAh. And that was the major part reviews talked about, with the battery not lasting long. That is well expected, given how it has a 1080p display and a processor that tends to heat up and drain the power even quicker.
Vivo now has a solution for it. But for that, the thickness won’t remain the same. But, what the company has changed, will become one major reason for you to get this device. The Vivo X5 Max has a Platinum Edition, which got official, with a 4150 mAh battery. More than double of what the original X5 Max has. The design is same, but the thickness of the phone gets increased to 7.2mm, but even for that thickness, this is the highest battery capacity.
While changing this, Vivo has also replaced the Snapdragon 615 processor with its Mediatek competitor chipset, the MT6752 that has been doing well in phones like Lenovo A7000, Meizu M1 Note, and the Gionee Elife S7. Every other detail is the same, including a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and a camera combination of 13-megapixel rear, 5-megapixel front facing cameras.
For those who don’t feel 16GB internal storage is enough, the device has a MicroSD storage expansion, possible up to 128GB. There is support for 4G LTE connectivity, and the phone has Dual SIM functionality. The color options remain the same – gold and white.
A slight thickness won’t matter much, right? when you are getting that super battery life. Especially when the 7.2mm thickness looks more only for the 4.75mm one, but not against several other smartphones which are thicker than this, yet have a lesser battery capacity.
