The Vivo V5s has a 13MP f/2.2 rear shooter with Phase Detection Auto Focus technology and LED flash which allows for shooting multiple frames in quick succession to make 52MP Ultra HD photos.

Usual for mid-range smartphones, the Vivo V5s has a 5.5in HD screen powered by a 64 bit octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, expandable up to 256GB with a microSD card.

If Gold or Rose Gold doesn’t suit him, maybe Matte Black will be more his style.
