Vivo V7 Plus vs Oppo F5 vs Honor 9i: Price in India, Specification and Comparison


Ever since the concept of a phone sans bezels was introduced, almost all major smartphone manufacturers decided to get abroad the Full View train. A bezel-less display is almost an industry standard, with all major flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S8+, Google Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X going that route. Flagship phones have been used as a reference to design all subsequent phones, and the Full View display is the next big thing (after dual cameras, maybe). Although there are several devices in the market scattered across various price ranges, let’s take a look at three devices made by popular Chinese OEMs and determine how they fare against each other.

Vivo V7 Plus vs Oppo F5 vs Honor 9i: Price

Before we go diving into the specifications, let’s take a look at the most important aspect of any device, its price. The Vivo V7 Plus is priced at Rs. 18,940. The Oppo F5 is priced at Rs. 18,629 for the 4GB variant and Rs. 22,990 for the 6GB variant. Lastly, the Huawei Honor 9i (also known as the Huawei Mate 10 Lite in some markets) is priced at Rs. 17,999. The Honor 9i has the most reasonable price of the three and is off to a good start, but does it hold up against the other two? Let’s find out. 


Vivo V7 Plus vs Oppo F5 vs Honor 9i: Display

The Vivo V7 Plus features a 6-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 720×1440 (~269 ppi density) and is overshadowed by the one on the Oppo F5, which is also a 6-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080×2160 (~402 ppi density). The Honor 9i is barely ahead of the pack, with a 5.9-inch panel with a resolution of 1080×2160 (~40p ppi density). The Oppo F5 and the Honor 9i are pretty much tied, with the Vivo V7 Plus lagging behind significantly, in terms of display prowess.


Vivo V7 Plus vs Oppo F5 vs Honor 9i: Performance

The Vivo V7 Plus is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 clocked at 1.8GHz, while the Opo F5 choose to go the MediaTek route, with an MT6763T Helio P23 clocked at 2.5GHz as its SoC of choice. As expected the Honor 9i uses Huawei’s own Kirin 659 chipset clocked at 2.36GHz. The Vivo V7 Plus does, however, have a marginally better Adreno 506 GPU, which is marginally better than the ARM Mali-G71 MP2 on the Oppo F5 and the ARM Mali-T830 MP2 on the Honor 9i. The Honor 9i is the clear winner here, as it outperforms the Snapdragon 450 and the MediaTek MT6763T by a significant margin.

Both the Vivo V7+ and the Oppo F5 come with a 16-megapixel primary camera, the major difference being the Oppo F5 has a f/1.8 lens while the Vivo V7 Plus has a f/2.0 lens. The Honor 9i, on the other hand, features a dual 16+2-megapixel camera setup, making it the superior device when it comes to the primary camera.Things are slightly more evenly matched on the secondary camera front. The Vivo V7 Plus features a 24-megapixel shooter, while the Oppo F5’s is 20-megapixels. The Honor 9i, on the other hand, opts for a 13+2-megapixel dual camera setup on the front. In terms of sheer image clarity, the Vivo V7 Plus has the better secondary camera, but if you’re looking for a depth of field effect, you’re better off with the Honor 9i. The Honor 9i is the better device here, albeit barely.

Vivo V7 Plus vs Oppo F5 vs Honor 9i: Verdict

There are some minor tidbits where one device is better than the others, but from a birds-eye perspective, the Honor 9i is clearly the better one here, with a lower price and stellar performance.
