Oppo F11 Pro is powered by the Helio P70 processor that we saw on the Realme 3. It is available in 6GB RAM coupled with 64GB expandable storage. The battery is 4,000mAh with support for the company’s VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology, said to offer two hours of usage in five minutes of charging.
Vivo V15 Pro packs the new Snapdragon 675 processor with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. The performance is decent when one considers moderate usage and we did not experience lag or heating issues during our review period. The phone is backed by a 3,700mAh battery and there is fast charging as well.
