It's a Linux eat Linux World

Not to be cruel, but it's a Linux eat Linux world, and will the loss of another boutique distro even be noticed, let alone missed, among the other Nine Zillion distro's out there that are managing to survive?

Vivo V5 Plus review: The Android phone for stylish selfies

These manufacturers tend to add their own USP to a smartphone, which you might not always get on an Apple or Samsung. In Vivo’s case, it has launched a new mid-range premium device called V5 Plus with the highlight being a dual selfie camera. Vivo V5 Plus can be described as many things, but original. The phone borrows its design cues from multiple flagship devices, but clearly its major influence is the iPhone 7. But is this dual-selfie camera, iPhone-lookalike worth its price?
