Oppo F7 VS Vivo V9: Lower mid-range selfie-focused smartphones. When the iPhone X was released in the last quarter of 2017 with a notch display, we knew it was only a matter of time before other smartphone companies adopt it. OEM companies such as Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and so on, have manufactured smartphones featuring the top notch display feature. For this article, we would be looking at two mid-range smartphones that feature the top-notch; the Oppo F7 and Vivo V9.

You would think we are comparing both devices because of their top-notch feature, but that’s not the case. Aside from their top-notch display, the two are so similar in a lot of ways. They’re both selfie-focused smartphones with a quality front camera. They even have similar weights and dimensions. Let’s just say we are curious to find out what makes them different from each other and which one is actually better.

This is where both smartphones let me down. The Oppo F7 packs a non-removable Li-Ion 3400 mAh battery that doesn’t support fast battery charging. While the Vivo V9 packs a non-removable Li-Ion 3260 mAh battery and also doesn’t support fast battery charging.

The Oppo F7 cost around $323 (N113,050), which is cheaper considering the Vivo V9 cost about $356 (N124,600). Vivo V9’s extra cash would have been justified if it features fast better charging. Both smartphones are virtually the same to me and I would instead go with a cheaper Oppo F7.
