Oppo F5’s Artificial Intelligence Beauty Mode Makes It a Clear Winner Over the Vivo V7+

China’s smartphone makers Oppo and Vivo continue to compete for the selfie camera crown. Offering a great front camera, the brands are catering to the selfie phenomenon that is a craze among youth. With the launch of new selfie centric Oppo F5, the Chinese player seeks to target Vivo’s latest V7+. So which is the ideal selfie phone?


Lets first look at Oppo F5’s selfie camera. The Oppo F5 sports a 20MP front camera that has a f/2.0 aperture and takes decent photos in daylight as well as indoors. In low light conditions, thanks to f2.0 aperture and assistance from screen flash, you get some great selfies. The front camera also operates the F5’s face unlock feature.

In comparison, the Vivo V7+ features a mammoth 24 MP selfie camera with LED flash on the front. The camera comes with a portrait mode, a comprehensive beauty mode, HDR, and takes strikingly good images. There is also a “group selfie” mode which similar to panorama shot and produces fairly great shots.

The highlight feature that takes Oppo F5 as an ideal selfie phone a notch over its competitors is the artificial intelligence beauty mode. The beauty mode scans your face and highlights areas like cheekbones and eyes to make the selfies look more beautiful. The AI integration is indeed an addition that makes the Oppo F5 camera a winner. vivo-v7+-1

Where the Vivo V7+ really outshines the F5 is nighttime selfies. Packing a front LED flash works in favour of the V7 Plus. You can get great photos no matter how dark it is. The photos from the front camera of V7+ are definitely brighter than the F5.

However, your selfies are only as good as they look on screen. The Vivo V7+ display measures 6-inches and comes with 18:9 aspect ration, but the resolution is a disappointing 1440 x 720 pixels. This is a low for a modern smartphone and not acceptable for a mid-segment smartphone.

The F5, on the other hand, packs a 6-inch with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels which gives it a pixel density of 402 PPI. This means high brightness and rich colour make your photos look sharp and vibrant. The F5 has a major advantage over Vivo V7+ here.



Overall, Oppo F5 is neck to neck competition in Vivo V7+. Still, Oppo has always been an expert and a continuous leader in the field of selfies which makes F5 an ideal choice for a selfie lover. Despite packing a smaller MP front camera, the artificial intelligence beauty mode is certainly a distinct advantage for F5. Moreover, you get a better display at a competitive price of Rs 19,999, against Vivo’s Rs 21,990 price.

Are Vivo and Oppo not sister brands? As per I know Oppo ,Vivo and OnePlus are sister brands ?


For some reasons I am not going to agree with the author.
F5 does not possess a camera that can beat v7+.
I own both the devices and v7+ is a winner any day and In every way its just the display is not that bright on v7+, but the quality of the photos is superior than F5.
Yes OPPO had a great selfie camera in F3 plus and I do believe there is no such phone at the moment not even this F5 that’s going to beat the quality of photos taken from oppo’s f3 plus front camera.


I have had all these devices and out of this entire bunch, I will say the V5 Plus is better than V7+, oppo f3 or f5 series. The V7+ is a disappointment IMHO. And yes oppo F5 has very good image processing (thanks to MTK) which does edge out V7+. Oppo F3 Plus does have a slightly better camera, but is not a better phone.


I still have a v5 plus and yes I will agree to what you said but the details are much more better on a picture clicked with the front camera of v7+ . Processing power wise v7 + ain’t close to f5 or even v5 plus. But vivo has managed to put a wonderful camera (front) in v7+ and now new v7 . F5 pictures came out bright and lacked details, colors were over saturated and they didn’t look real and at the same time v7+ surprised me with its imaging capabilities. F3 plus has had a wonderful camera but… Read more »


V5 Plus had a 128GB variant in some countries. I wish vivo had released it in India.
BTW do you have any info on whether F3 plus is going to get a nougat update? Oppo officially is not saying either yes or no.


F3 plus deserves an update from the current version but oppo can’t be trusted on that.
Vivo did the unexpected by updating its ? series lineup to nougat, now I think oppo should also.
Besides F3 plus is a powerful device as well and nougat will make it better..

Fingers crossed.
