Vivo V25 Pro vs OnePlus 10R: specifications, features, and design

Design

The Vivo V25 Pro features a color-changing back design that has also been used on previous Vivo smartphones. The innovative three-step camera module with the Vivo logo underneath is what’s new. Due to the curved display on the device, Vivo also tapered the rear panel in an effort to provide a symmetrical device. The phone’s volume rockers and power button are located on the right side, and the speaker grill, SIM card tray, and USB Type C connector are located on the bottom.

The OnePlus 10R, on the other hand, has a boxy, flat-edged appearance. The bottom-right corner of the rear panel features the OnePlus logo, while the top features a triple camera arrangement with an LED flash nestled within a square island. It includes a volume rocker on the left and a power button on the right. A SIM slot, a speaker grille, and a USB Type-C connector are located at the bottom. Classic OnePlus Alert Slider, the company’s switch to change between Ring, Silent, and Vibrate, has also been abandoned in favour of a bigger battery.

Display

The Vivo V25 Pro flaunts a 6.56-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate. We get a curved panel here, that comes with HDR10+ certification and supports HDR streaming on all the leading OTT platforms. The panel here can only switch between the 60Hz of 120Hz refresh mode and does not support variable refresh rates compared to the OnePlus 10R.

In comparison, the OnePlus 10R is using a 6.7-inch E4 10-bit AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution. OnePlus refers to this panel as ‘Fluid Display,’ which means that the panel can dynamically switch between 60, 90, and 120Hz refresh rates. This panel also gets the HDR10+ certification and can play the HDR content on all major OTT platforms.

Processor, RAM, and Storage

The Dimensity 1300, MediaTek’s most recent upper mid-range processor, powers the Vivo V25 Pro. When compared to the previous generation chip, this new chip promises to produce superior thermal performance and boost overall efficiency by a small margin. The phone is available in two memory configurations: 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS3.1 storage, and a 12GB RAM and 256GB storage option.

The OnePlus 10R, in contrast, comes in two RAM variants and is also powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC. The phone is available in two memory configurations: 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS3.1 storage, & the top-end 12GB RAM and 256GB storage model.

Cameras

On the back, the Vivo V25 Pro features a triple camera setup. Vivo has used the same camera setup that was found on the vanilla V23 smartphone from last year. We get to see a 64MP main sensor with an f/1.89 aperture, OIS, and EIS capability, as well as an 8MP ultrawide angle lens and a 2MP macro sensor with a dual-LED flash. A 32MP camera on the phone is in charge of selfies.

OnePlus-10R

In contrast, the OnePlus 10R has a triple rear camera setup, which the company has now used on a number of handsets. We get to see the main 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor with OIS, along with an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro sensor. A 16MP snapper on the front takes care of selfies and video calling needs.

Connectivity

In terms of connectivity, the Vivo v25 Pro comes with dual-band 4G and 5G support, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, USB Type-C for data transfer, and an in-display fingerprint sensor for added security. It is powered by the latest Android 12 operating system with Vivo’s FunTouchOS skin on top.

It also gets an in-display fingerprint sensor and face unlock setup for added security. It comes with the latest Android 12 build with OnePlus’s OxygenOS 12.1 custom skin on top.
