OPPO F7 vs OPPO F5: Specs Comparison

OPPO‘s new flagship called the F7 has been officially announced, and we can’t help but check on the differences compared to its predecessor, the OPPO F5,  announced last year. Here’s a quick look on what’s different between the two full-screen devices.

Buy the OPPO F5 for:
– Higher CPU clock speed
– No-notch, Full Screen design
– Cheaper price

Buy the OPPO F7 for:
– Bigger storage
– Updated OS
– More integrated AI functionality
– Bigger battery capacity
– Bigger resolution front camera


The F7 now sports what the company calls a Super Full-Screen display with a rather very large 6.23-inch LTPS display and a 19:9 aspect ratio. As with the trend of many other smartphones, the F7 now comes with a notch for the camera and sensors; a stark contrast to the F5’s almost bezel-less aesthetic. There’s not much of a difference if we’re going to compare them except for the aspect ratio and the adjusted resolution that comes with it.

The base model for the F7 now sports 64GB, which is twice more than what the original F5 variant has. The latter, on the other hand, trumps in clock speed with its CPU: 2.5GHz on the Helio P23 vs 2.0GHz on the Helio P60 which makes the F5 better for gaming and hard multitasking, but the F7’s chip possesses dedicated cores for AI processing that is more beneficial for tasks such as taking selfies, navigating your photo album, or OS learning your habits to present more relative tasks and gestures.

The F7 also has the edge in the front camera department with a larger sensor at 25-megapixels compared to 20MP. Adding in a more sophisticated AI-assisted selfie, the company boasts a more realistic beautification with its AI Beautify 2.0 feature. The new selfie expert also leads in battery (200mAh increase compared to the F5) and operating system (AI-assisted ColorOS over Android Oreo) .

The OPPO F5 currently retails for Php15,990 while the F7 was introduced in India with an INR21,000 price, or about Php17,700 when directly converted. With a lot of differences in tow, which one would you pick — the bezel-less selfie smartphone or the one with a brand new notch? Leave your pick down in the comments section.

    P60 delivers 70% higher performance than the previous generation MediaTek Helio P23 series chipset.

    so paano naging mas malakas ang p23 sa p60 sa gaming at multitasking? dahil sa clock speed ng cpu?

      This powers a 70% CPU and 70% GPU performance uptick compared to its chipset predecessors, the Helio P23 and Helio P30. In addition to the eight-core processor, it makes use of the new Mali G72 MP3 GPU at up to 800MHz to help raise the graphics performance bar.

      In addition to 70% performance gains, Helio P60 is promising 12% efficiency overall and to become up to 25% more efficient in situations when you’re running intense tasks (think 3D gaming), according to MediaTek.

      The result here is that your new phone won’t run out of battery quite so fast. The chip’s CorePilottechnology is supposed to assign workloads across the eight cores for optimal performance.

      Helio P60 also has three different ISPs for its camera, which allow it to see an 18% power savings on dual cameras vs previous generation chipsets. You should walk away with more photos before having to recharge your device.

      All of this helps solve the No. 1 complaint we hear from smartphone users everyday. It’s not the camera, screen resolution, or thinness of the phone they want to maximize. It’s that they want more battery life.
