Oppo A83 VS Vivo Y83

Oppo A83 VS Vivo Y83: which of the 83-naming smartphone is the best? Vivo and Oppo are among the top ten largest phone makers in the world. The two companies look somewhat the same in the way they manufacture their products. A quick background history about them, shows they’re both under BBK Electronics (a Chinese multinational firm that deals in wide range of electronics such as Cell phones, MP3 players, Digital cameras e.t.c). This is similar to Infinix Mobility, Tecno Mobile and iTel, which are all under Transsion Holdings.

But Oppo and Vivo are not being creative with their smartphones in my opinion. They make it look so obvious that they share a connection. Remember the Oppo F7 and Vivo V9 are termed “selfie-focused smartphones and share similar specs. Then there is Vivo X21 and Oppo R15. And now we have the Oppo A83 and Vivo Y83 featuring almost the same specs with a similar name. Let’s see which of these two smartphones is the best “83”.

The Vivo Y83 features the better design with trending stuff. Though we might not blame Oppo that much since the Vivo Y83 was released five months after the Oppo A83. The Oppo A83 comes ordinary except for its bezel-less display. While the Vivo Y83 comes with the trending top-notch display and also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric security. It would seem Oppo have not finally accepted the fingerprint sensor for its budget smartphones. Their latest budget smartphone; Oppo Realme 1 also comes with no fingerprint sensor.

The Oppo A83 and Vivo Y83 measures the same 7.7mm in thickness. While the Oppo A83 weighs 143 grams and the Vivo Y83 weighs 150 grams. The rear camera and LED flash of both smartphones is aligned at the top left corner making them look somewhat identical. The Black, Aurora White, Red, and Gold body colors are available for the Vivo Y83. While you get to choose from Gold, Black, Red and Blue body colors for the Oppo A83.

While the display of the Oppo A83 features 720 x 1440 pixels resolution, an 18:9 aspect ratio and 282 pixels per inch density. The obvious winner in this department is the Vivo Y83 with a bigger screen size and pixels resolution.
