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.
