The Y85, on the other hand, has a slightly larger screen but doesn’t help much in terms of pixel density due to its lower resolution.

For imaging, this is a bit tricky as the F7 Youth has a 13MP rear camera and 8MP front. Both are assisted with AI technology. The Y85 has two dual rear cameras consisting of a 13MP main and a 2MP secondary to aid in bokeh effects, and an 8MP front camera. Only the front camera was mentioned to be assisted by AI for beauty effects.
When it comes to security, both phones have the Face Unlock feature, however, the Y85 has the advantage of having a fingerprint scanner to make it more secure.
Powering the F7 Youth is the Helio P60 chip with ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, while the Y85 has the Helio P22 chip with IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Although both chipsets were fabricated on TSMC’s 12nm FinFET process technology, the F7 Youth provides a better performance.
