Two of the biggest phone market shareholders here in the Philippines are set to battle it out in today’s specs comparison.

Both OPPO and Vivo are fan favorites here in the Philippines and this statement was confirmed by an analyst firm, Canalys.  Based on their research, OPPO took a share of 28% in the market, good for first place in Q2 of 2019. Meanwhile, Vivo took 3rd place with 17%. (Samsung came second with 19%, in case you were wondering)


Obviously, the demand for both OPPO and Vivo phones is really high and it’s only right we compare 2 of their recent releases – The OPPO Reno 2F and the Vivo V17 Pro. Both midrange phones have their own set of strengths but which one is the best option for you?

Let’s talk about the OPPO Reno 2F first. The 2F is somewhat a toned-down version of the Reno 2. It has a quad-camera set up that has an Ultra Night Mode 2.0 feature. This allows the user to take beautiful and stunning shots at night.


The Vivo V17 Pro, similar to the Reno 2F, also features a quad-camera set up along with a dual selfie shootrs. If you’re an avid fan of taking selfies, then this phone is a perfect match for you due to its dual selfie camera.

Which of the two phones provide the best bang for the buck? We’ll answer that question in our OPPO Reno 2F vs Vivo V17 Pro specs comparison.

As you can see, both phones differ from each other much more than you think. Let’s start with the processor and the GPU. The OPPO Reno 2F has a MediaTek Helio P70 processor along with a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, while the Vivo V17 Pro has a better Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor and an Adreno 612 GPU.



On the Camera side, both are with quad-camera setups at the rear. The Reno 2F has a 48-megapixel main shooter along with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel mono and 2-megapixel depth sensor.

While the Vivo 17 Pro also has a 48-megapixel main shooter, 13-megapixel (telephoto), 8-megapixel (ultrawide) and 2-megapixel (depth sensor) On the front camera aspect, the Vivo V17 Pro has a dual-camera setup with a motorized pop-up 32-megapixel and 8-megapixel compared to the Reno 2F’s motorized pop-up 16-megapixel single shooter. Clearly, the V17 Pro wins the camera department.


Both devices to come with AMOLED screens. However, they differ in screen protection. A Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection is found on the Vivo V17 Pro, while the OPPO Reno 2F uses Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The Battery size of the V17 Pro is a bit bigger than the OPPO Reno 2F as the former has a 4,100mAh battery versus the 4,000mAh from OPPO. However, the latter has faster 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging support (vs 18W).


Storage-wise, they both have a 128GB internal storage. However, only the OPPO Reno 2F has the capacity to expand its storage to 256GB. For the V17 Pro, you’re stuck at 128GB storage only. In this aspect, OPPO takes the cake.

Judging from the specs, I would have to say the Vivo V17 Pro takes the win against the OPPO Reno 2F. Its faster processor and better cameras prove to be enough to defeat the Oppo Reno 2F.


Even though the Vivo V17 Pro is more expensive than the Reno 2F, we think the extra money you’d be paying would be worth it.

The OPPO Reno 2F can be bought for Php19,90 while the Vivo V17 Pro is available for purchase at Php21,999.
