Vivo V15 vs Oppo F11 Pro: Battle of pop-up camera



Pop-up selfie camera technology is the new trend in the smartphone world. Lately, we have seen several phones come with pop-up selfie camera including the Vivo V15, Vivo V15 Pro, and Oppo F11 Pro. Meanwhile, some rumours and leaks suggest that the next OnePlus flagship phone aka OnePlus 7 (most likely) will also come with pop-up selfie camera.

Vivo recently launched the younger brother of the V15 Pro aka V15 in India to compete with Oppo’s newly launched F11 Pro. Both the phones come with a single pop-up selfie camera on the front but the placement of the pop-ups is different from one another. On the Vivo phone, the pop-up sits on the extreme left while on the Oppo phone it’s almost on the centre. On the OnePlus 7 too, the pop-up camera is said somewhere in the middle.

Vivo and Oppo have been ongoing for years now. One follows the other in almost everything. Vivo launched the V15 Pro back in February this year that’s when Oppo announced to launch the Oppo F11 Pro. Soon after the F11 Pro went official Vivo announced to launch the V15 to take on the likes of Oppo phone. The V15 has been launched in India and will go on sale for the first time on April 1 for a starting price of Rs 23,990. The Oppo F11 Pro sells for Rs 24,990 in the country.

Let’s take a look at how the Vivo V15 and Oppo F11 Pro compete with one another.

–The Vivo V15 sports a much bigger screen when compared to its big brother V15 Pro. The phone comes packed with an Ultra FullView display that measures 16.59cm (6.53-inches). The screen of the V15 has a resolution of 1080×2340 and aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The V15 screen is protected with 2.5D glass, Fifth-generation Corning Gorilla Glass or Gorilla Glass 5. As I had mentioned in the quick review of the Vivo V15 the phone offers a big and bright display.

In comparison, the Oppo F11 Pro comes packed with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD Full HD+ display. Despite not having AMOLED panel the screen of the Vivo phone turns out to be pretty bright even in 50 per cent brightness level when under the blazing sun. The Oppo F11 Pro also has a pretty vivid display. In the F11 Pro we at India Today Tech mentioned:

“The display is sharp and offer vivid colours. The display has good viewing angles and acceptable brightness levels at 400 nits. Despite not being an AMOLED display, the panel offers good saturation and deep blacks.”

–On the hardware front both the Oppo F11 Pro and V15 are at par. Both the phones are powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage. On the software front, the Vivo phone runs Android 9.0 Pie based on Funtouch OS 9 while the Oppo F11 Pro runs ColorOS 6.0 based on Android 9 Pie.

–Phones from both Vivo and Oppo have been very popular for their great cameras. Similar is the case with the new devices — V15 and Oppo F11 Pro. The Vivo V15 includes three cameras on the back. It includes a primary 12MP sensor, secondary 8-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor for clicking portrait shots. On the camera front, the Vivo V15 – similar to the V15 Pro — comes with a 32-megapixel sensor for clicking selfies. It’s a pop-up camera on the front.

In comparison, the Oppo F11 Pro includes only two cameras on the back – but they are powerful — and single sensor on the front — and for this too is a pop-up camera. On the front, the Vivo V15 11 Pro includes a 16-megapixel camera. On the rear panel, the Oppo F11 Pro includes a primary 48-megapixel camera with F1.7 lens and a secondary 5-megapixel depth camera for capturing portrait shots. Similar to the Redmi Note 7 Pro, the Oppo phone also uses Sony IMX586 sensor, this means the phone will click great low-light pictures. The F11 Pro also comes with PRO model and it does a good job.

Talking about the Nightspace or PRO mode this is what we mentioned in the review of the Oppo F11 Pro: “I have been quite impressed with Oppo’s Nightscape mode for low-light photography.”

–The Vivo V15 comes with a 4,000mAh battery with Vivo’s Dual-Engine Fast Charging support. Same goes for the Oppo F11 Pro. The Oppo phone also comes with a massive 4000mAh battery paired with company’s own VOOC 3.0 fast charging support. Sadly none of the two phones come with USB Type C support – you’ll find Micro USB port in both the phones.

–Both the Vivo V15 and Oppo F11 Pro come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor – yes no in-display sensor here. Sadly the Vivo phone doesn’t come with face unlock support but that isn’t the case with the Oppo phone. There’s face unlock on the Oppo F11 Pro.

Vivo V15 or Oppo F11 Pro?
As far as the overall design of the two phones is concerned, both the phones look beautiful, but the Vivo phone feels much lighter in the hands compared to Oppo. Both the Oppo F11 Pro and Vivo V15 come with a big and bright display and powerful performance. The software is one not-so-good bit about the phones. Both ColorOS and FunTouch OS offer lots of bloatware which not everyone will like. Overall, both the Oppo and Vivo phones are good in their own way, but I still wish the handsets supported USB Type C port and not Micro USB. The Vivo V15 comes for Rs 23,990 while the Oppo F11 Pro comes for Rs 24,990. According to me, both the Vivo and Oppo phones pack enough to keep you happy under Rs 25,000.
