The A83 has the upper-hand due to its larger screen size, aspect ratio, and vertical resolution. While it has a different display type with the J7 Core, both of them have advantages and disadvantages that we discussed before in this article.
CPU AND GPU
The A83 has the Helio P23 processor while the J7 Core has Exynos 7870. From clock speed alone, it can be said that the former has a better one but what sealed this claim is when we tested both of the devices in the AnTuTu benchmark. The scores that were yielded have a big difference which means that the former has a better performing CPU and GPU than the former.
The Mali-T830 MP2 GPU of the J7 Core gives a decent performance in terms of playing games such as Mobile Legends, Rules of Survival, Sky Dancer, etc… however, the Mali-G71 MP2 of the A83 exceeds it due to its higher clock speed per core making the former as the better pick for a gaming smartphone.
The A83 has a higher front camera resolution than the J7 Core with the addition of having an AI Beautification Technology making it a better choice if users are fond of taking selfies. We have taken sample shots from both smartphone and here are the images that we’ve produced: OPPO A83 and Samsung Galaxy J7 Core.
The A83 has a 3,180mAh battery while the J7 Core has a 3,000mAh one. When tested in PC Mark’s battery life test, both devices lasted longer than average but the former has a 1-hour advantage. If users are looking for a smartphone with a long battery life, they can go with the A83.
The OPPO A83 and Samsung Galaxy J7 Core are both priced at Php9,990.
For this matchup, the A83 is the clear winner due to its better specs-to-price ratio. What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
