Rest of the specs for both the smartphones are quite similar and design and build on both the devices is similar.

- The Vivo XPlay 5 is priced at CNY 3698 ( or Rs. 38500 or $575)
Performance wise you will not find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 any slower but definitely it is no match for the Snapdragon 820. You can place the snapdragon 652 in the league of Snapdragon 808 which is used in the LG G4 and the Google Nexus 5X. Some of the Initial performance also hints that it reaches the performance of Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 but is a little slower.
The GPU is Adreno 510 which is little slower than the Adreno 430 used in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. The Adreno 530 used with the Snapdragon 820 is a much faster GPU. In nut shell it is going to have a little slower performance compared to the OnePlus 2 or Google Nexus 6P.
For a price difference of 6000 this is lot of compromise I would say and personally would pick the Snapdragon 820 powered Vivo XPlay 5 Elite.
The Vivo XPlay 5 comes with 5.43 inch 2K Display with 541 PPI and corning’s gorilla glass 4 protection. The smartphone has 128 GB of internal storage and no sue pport for the memory card.
The rear camera on the device is a 16 MP Sony IMX298 shooter which comes with PDAF , Dual Led flash and f/2.0 aperture size. The front camera is also decent with an 8 MP camera.
The Vivo XPlay 5 offers 4G LTE connectivity along with 3G / 2G and WIFI. The mobile also runs on the Android Lollipop OS and features funtouch OS 2.5 while the Elite version comes with the Android Marshmallow and Funtouch OS 2.6.
The Vivo XPlay 5 has 7.67 mm thickness and weighs 167 grams and has a battery capacity of 3600 mAH which is sufficient to last all day.
Overall we think the Vivo XPlay 5 Elite is a better proposition to go with considering faster processor , more ram (though not matters much 4G is more than enough) , latest OS.
