Vivo X5Max-First Impression– Chinese manufacturer is completely targeting Indian smartphone market as company has recently launched five handset Vivo X5Max, Vivo X Shot, Vivo Y22, Vivo Y15, and Vivo X3S. Today we will go through Vivo X5Max Specifications in detail; company claimed it to be the slimmest smartphone in world with a thickness of 4.75 mm. We have already discussed two very slim handsets with the name Coolpad Ivvi Little I and Micromax Canvas Sliver 5.

If we consider Coolpad Ivvi Little I, Micromax Sliver 5 or X5Max there is not much difference in thickness or spec chart. We can say companies are trying to sue customers with slimness factor. The main highlights of Vivo X5Max are Octa-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, 2GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. X5Max also supports 3G and 4G-high speed networks in Indian region and powered by 2,300mAh battery, which is the only disadvantage or demerit of X5Max handset.
