Here are the advantages:

Realme 2:

  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • Higher maximum RAM capacity
  • Higher maximum storage capacity
  • Fingerprint scanner


  • None

Yes, you’ve seen it correctly, we don’t see any specs advantage for the OPPO A3S.

Before I make any conclusions, I will discuss each aspect first. For the display, both devices have a similar setup except for the glass protection. The Realme 2 comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 while the A3S does not have any. For viewing experience, they’re basically the same.

In terms of overall performance, they’re also the same. The Realme 2, however, will have an advantage due to its higher RAM option. We’ll know more once we test out the device in the coming days. Their cameras specs and OS are also the same so the performance could be identical.

Lastly, both devices have the same battery capacity. And given the same OS, their battery life could be in the same range as well.

In summary, the Realme 2 is like an improved version of the OPPO A3S with a more refreshing design, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a fingerprint scanner, and higher RAM and internal storage capacities.

The Realme 2 is yet to be priced in the Philippines but in Indonesia, it costs IDR 1,999,000 (~PHP 7,104) for the 3GB + 32GB variant and IDR 2,399,000 (~PHP 8,526) for the 4GB + 64GB variant while the OPPO A3S 2GB +16GB is priced at PHP 6,990 while the 3GB + 32GB variant is priced at PHP 9,990. If the price is right, Realme could do some real damage here.
