“Both the OPPO F11 Pro and Vivo V15 Pro flaunt pop-up selfie cameras and 48-megapixel rear shooters”
The new OPPO F11 Pro comes right after the Vivo V15 Pro, which was launched last month. The two phones are very similar to each other, but there are a few key differences that may tilt the scales in favour of either of them, depending on your preference. So if you’re confused between the two, let’s give you a thorough breakdown between the F11 Pro and V15 Pro to help you decide which one should you go for.
OPPO F11 Pro vs Vivo V15 Pro prices in India
A few factors like the presence of only two rear cameras and the absence of a Qualcomm processor on the OPPO F11 Pro make it a bit cheaper than the V15 Pro. This handset comes in a single configuration of 6GB + 64GB and will set you back by Rs 24,990. The V15 Pro price in India on the other hand, is set at Rs 28,990 for the lone 6GB RAM model which ships with 128GB of storage.
OPPO F11 Pro vs Vivo V15 Pro design and display
Both these phones have taken a very similar approach in terms of the design. In order to provide full-screen front surfaces, these devices have made use of pop-up selfie cameras. But this snapper’s centre alignment on the OPPO handset allows for less distortion in your selfies, according to its makers. The rear surface of the F11 Pro also features a centre-aligned dual camera system, along with a fingerprint scanner. The V15 Pro’s triple camera array is aligned towards the left, and there’s no fingerprint sensor on the back, since it has been placed underneath its display. Both the phones sport gradient rear surfaces made of glass.
The 3.5mm socket is present on both of them, and the same goes for the microSD card slots. Sadly, both phones come with micro-USB ports. One thing special to the Vivo handset is the presence of a dedicated Google Assistant button on the side. Coming to their displays, the F11 Pro has the larger one among the two. Its 6.5-inch IPS LCD showcases its visuals in a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels. As for the V15 Pro, it bears a 6.39-inch panel with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,316 pixels. The fact that the Vivo phone features a Super AMOLED panel also gives it a big advantage.
The 12nm Mediatek Helio P70 chipset is powering the OPPO handset, offering the benefits of a 2.1GHz octa-core processor and a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. This phone ships with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage. The Vivo V15 Pro’s SoC is definitely the better one among the two. It’s the 11nm Snapdragon 675 chip, which offers a 2GHz octa-core CPU, along with an Adreno 612 GPU. 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is on offer with the Vivo handset.
Color, of course, course the software of choice for the OPPO phone. This Android 9.0 Pie-based handset comes with updated gesture navigation, a cycling mode, a cloud storage service and even a digital assistant. The software on the Vivo phone is also Android 9.0 Pie, but it’s customised with Funtouch 9 interface. A video editor is one of its major highlights, but the other features are more or less similar to ColorOS. Both of these devices also offer gaming modes.
OPPO F11 Pro vs Vivo V15 Pro camera and battery
On the back of the F11 Pro sits a dual-camera setup, comprising a 48-megapixel f/1.79 shooter that’s paired with a 5MP depth sensor. An Ultra Night Mode, a portrait mode, a bokeh preview mode and a host of other AI-based traits are available on the phone’s camera app. The Vivo phone on the other hand, carries three cameras on its back. One of them is a 48MP f/1.8 snapper for regular shots, while the other is an 8MP unit for ultra-wide angle shots. The third camera is a 5MP sensor meant to offer the portrait mode. The pop-up camera onboard the OPPO phone is a 16MP sensor, whereas the Vivo handset’s front camera is a 32MP sensor. Both these selfie shooters come equipped with tons of AI features.
The F11 Pro kicks in a bigger 4,000mAh cell than the Vivo V15 Pro’s 3,700mAh unit. Both phones come with their respective fast charging technologies. OPPO’s VOOC 3.0 promises to offer 20-minute faster charging time than VOOC 2.0. The Dual Engine technology on the V15 Pro is capable of charging the device from 0 to 75 percent in about an hour.
Both devices offer an impressive set of features, and it all boils down to the fact whether you’re looking for a better processor, triple cameras on the back and in-display fingerprint sensor at a slightly higher price tag or are fine with a pop-up selfie shooter and budget-centric SoC at a slightly lower price point.
