It’s no secret that Vivo and OPPO like to go against each other. When someone launches a new smartphone, the other will release its own to compete against it. That’s pretty much what happened on their new low-end smartphones.

The OPPO A71 2018 was launched in the Philippines last March. After that, it was followed by the release of the Vivo Y71 in April. Both devices are in the sub-Php8k category — which means that they are made for those who are looking for a more advanced entry-level smartphone.

Both Vivo and OPPO have been playing around the budget-smartphone playground for a while now. Their decent specs, partnered with intense marketing strategies and strong retail presence (if you’ve been in a mall’s gadget section, you know what I’m talking about) they are absolutely one of the biggest names in the local tech industry today.
