A reader asks, “Which is better: OPPO A83 or Vivo Y69?“
Two rival company smartphones will be put side-by-side to see which has the advantage in different key aspects. Let’s start!
The OPPO A83 has just been official in the country this year. It has a 5.7″ 18:9 display with 1440 x 720 resolution, a MediaTek MT6763T (Helio P23) processor, a 32GB internal storage, a 3GB RAM, a 13MP rear camera with LED flash, an 8MP front camera with screen flash, and a 3,180mAh battery.
The Vivo Y69 has been around last September and has been available in the country since then. It has a 5.5″ 16:9 HD display with 1280 x 720 resolution, a MediaTek MT6750 processor, a 32GB internal storage, a 3GB RAM, a 13MP rear camera with LED flash, 16MP front camera with LED flash, and a 3,000mAH battery.
Here are their detailed specs:

Here the advantages of each smartphone:
+ Larger screen size
+ Higher Horizontal screen resolution
+ Better performing CPU
+ Better performing GPU
+ Larger battery capacity
+ Face Unlock
+ Android 7.1.1 out-of-the-box
+ Higher front camera resolution
+ Front LED flash
+ Fingerprint scanner
The OPPO A83 has an upper hand with its larger screen size and higher screen aspect ratio. The Y69 is not bad, but, in terms of viewing experience, the former is the better choice when it comes to users who are fond of watching videos.
CPU AND GPU
We have tested both smartphones’ processors in the AnTuTu benchmarking application and the results are evident. The Helio P23 of the A83 yielded 67,496 while the Y69 only got 40,169. This means that the former is the better pick for a smartphone with better and faster performance. As for the gaming potential, both smartphones can run moderately heavy graphics with ease but the Mali-G71 can run heavy-graphics games better than the Mali-T860.
We can safely say that both smartphones are selfie-centric since the A83 has an AI beautification feature originally found in the OPPO F5 while the Y69 has a higher front camera resolution. Unfortunately, we have not taken sample shots on the latter, but users may want to check out what we got from the A83 here.
On paper, the A83 has a larger battery capacity than the Y69, however, we can deduce their battery life by looking at the display, CPU, OS, and battery capacity. The Helio P23 has a 16nm architecture which is more optimized than the 28nm architecture of the MT6750. By this, we can safely say that the A83 will last longer than the Y69.
The OPPO A83 is priced at Php9,990 while the Vivo Y69 is priced at Php9,990 (see price listing here).
Overall, the OPPO A83 is the better pick in terms of display, CPU, GPU, and battery. Do you agree with our pick? Let us know your thought in the comments section below.
