Battle of the brands – Oppo F7 vs. Vivo V9!

Oppo and Vivo are constantly pitting their smartphones against each other. It’s not surprising that Oppo F7 was launched within days after Vivo V9. Both devices get the notch for the under 25k segment in India and have certain similarities with iPhone X, as far as design is concerned. In this post, we will talk about Vivo V9 and Oppo F7 with differences in consideration.

Similar hardware, same performance

Oppo F7 64GB is priced at 22k, which is slightly lower than Vivo’s model, which costs around 23k in the country.

To be fair, we didn’t see any difference in performance while using Vivo V9 and Oppo F7. Both worked well for multitasking and did warm up a bit during video calling, which is negligible. Oppo F7 comes with the 2 MHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor, while V9 runs on the Qualcomm MSM8953-Pro Snapdragon 626 processor. These smartphones have 4GB RAM, with 64GB of internal storage, expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. V9 and F7 uses custom skin of their respective brands atop Android 8.1 straight out of the box. Sensors and connectivity options are the same, and both devices don’t include the Type-C port, which is a bummer for the price tags.

Smaller differences

In terms of weight and sizing, V9 weighs around 158 grams and has a slightly larger display of 6.3-inch. F7 weighs 158 grams and has a 6.23-inch FHD+ touchscreen. Both displays have a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels. Vivo certainly wins the rear camera battle, as it has a dual setup, featuring 16MP+5MP shooters, F7 just has one 16MP shooter. On paper, Oppo packs a better 25MP front camera compared to 24MP one on V9. We tried using the devices, and the results with cameras were pretty similar.

Final verdict

It would be hard to compare Vivo V9 and Oppo F7, which are similar in most aspects. However, there’s no denying that both are credible purchases for the price, and yes, you get the notch, quality display, and incredibly good selfie-cameras. If you are concerned with these aspects alone, well, you can choose either, depending on your preference. Oppo F7 may work better for hardware, so bear that in mind.
