Video: Vivo Xplay 5 shows its speed against X6 and iPhone 6S

With the Xiaomi Mi5 launched, the next exciting phone to watch out for is the Vivo Xplay 5. The 6GB RAM flagship has already been spotted on video in a short speed test against the iPhone 6S and Vivo X6.

With 6GB RAM and a Snapdragon 820 chipset, Vivo are saying the Xplay 5 is going to be fast, but it’s not just about pure horsepower and the company say that their phone uses its hardware in the smartest way possible.

How Vivo have managed to make their phone any smarter than the Xiaomi Mi5 (which has the same SD820) we won’t know until the launch, but to give us a taster on how fast the phone is a short video has emerged.

The video shows a heavily disguised Vivo Xplay 5 in the middle, with iPhone 6S on the right and Vivo X6 on the left. The video shows that no phone has any background apps running and then launches the Wechat application on each of the 3 phones.

The Vivo Xplay 5 opens the app almost instantly while the iPhone 6S is second and the X6 last. It’s not much to go on but it does give us an idea of the instant speed the Vivo Xplay 5 will be capable of.

What we would like to know now is what the camera specs, fingerprint scanner and design of this anticipated phone are going to be like?

    Only a few days left till we find out, my years of waiting for a decent phone looks like it’s nearly over.

    • Assefa Hanson

      lol you must have some high standards

      • Kim Ølberg Hansen

        Do we know the screen size?

        • JudikJ7

          Not yet

        • Ahsan

          I think we all can guess its screen size about 5.5 or 5.7 inch cause X6 has 5.2 inch and iPhone 6s has 4.7 inch display.

      • Rob

        Yes, but sick of budget and mid range offerings I’m never happy with. Cheaper to buy the right phone in the first place then lots of cheaper ones like I’ve done in the past.

  • afghanPower

    The video could be kind of misleading, no? He doesn’t actually open up the multitask screen on the android phones.

    • He pressed “clear tasks” button on both.

      • Stef

        Which IMO is what is misleading. The point of 6GB is ram caching. If you kill your background apps you may as well have 2GB of ram…

        In short a 6GB is far faster in the long run because it reloads less than any other phone… This test shows a situation that is typical for a niche of people (those who religiously kill background apps).

        • Assefa Hanson

          but your assuming that the ram is being utilized like how it is typically, vivo has been hinting of using the 2gb ram in a smart or specialized way as seen in this teaser picture and there was also some rumor of it being used for graphics

          • Stef

            That’s what custom AOSP roms are for, to save us from the “smarts” of the OEMs :p

            Having said that, vivo may use a ram caching mechanism of their own which is why only 2GB is available to the user. Which is maybe why it seems faster than others. If that is so … fair enough, ram is to be used, not that I expect their use is more appropriate than if they had simply let android do it, but I guess we would see…

      • afghanPower

        My bad.

  • MaxPower

    I see these monsters coming out and my mind goes to OnePlus 2 which according to the company is the 2016 flagship killer.

    • Assefa Hanson


  • Twister12

    This could be my next phone.


    I wandered lonely as a cloud 😀 MI5 ftw

  • Assefa Hanson

    i wonder if balco is even remotely excited about this phone

    • MaxPower

      Everybody is until they find out the price
      Hint: not cheap

      • Marco Lancaster

        Gionee and Oppo are expensive ones, but no one take the crown from Vivo 😛

        • benoita74

          The Find7a actually was cheap, coming in at 360$ and a 10% discount for students.
          The N3, and R7 were quite a ripoff though

      • Assefa Hanson

        i know vivo is crazy expensive, maybe 1200 dollars 😛

  • Assefa Hanson

    they said march 1st for launch right?

  • Angry Mobile Nerd

    Yes! This is exactly why we need phones with a Snapdragon 820 and 6GB of RAM: to open our wechat faster.

  • Cpaun

    Yeey it’s gonna be a big phone. 6 inches maybe, comparing it’s size with iPhone and X6. If the camera and sound quality are very good, this will be a phone to watch for.

  • Joel Adames

    i don´t care what is or not.! i want my SPECS WAR now!!!!! hehehehe

    we got android 6 which oververcomes most of the comsumption and stupidity of previous andrid versions, and it looks nice for those into those kind ot things
    (just until they blow it agin with some unknown bug)


  • XdaDev X

    vivo will ROCK AGAIN
