Let’s begin with their physique. The two opponents are both flaunting a trendy design. The Vivo Y95 comes with a glossy gradient black, while the OPPO A7 is dressed with a simpler yet still striking appearance. Its body is slightly bigger, too, with its 155.9mm x 75.4mm x 8.1mm dimensions, and is also heavier at 168 grams.

However, moving on to their display, you might scratch your head for they both have a 6.22-inch HD+ panel with FullView display. The Y95 and A7 are also mounted with a tiny notch dubbed as halo and waterdrop, respectively.


Under the hood, the battle became tricky and more interesting.  The OPPO A7 comes with a dated 1.8GHz Snapdragon 450 chipset, paired with Adreno 506 GPU. Meanwhile, the Vivo Y95 is loaded with a newer Snapdragon 439 chip with 12nm FinFET, complemented with Adreno 505 graphics.

Nevertheless, OPPO A7’s CPU is still faster compared with the Vivo Y95’s average frequency. In addition, the former also comes with the brand's Hyper Boost technology, making sure that it can handle heavy activities such as gaming. Both devices, on the other hand, are packed with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage – expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.

Moving on to their photography department, Vivo was able to bounce back. Although the rivals have the same camera resolution on its rear, we’re still giving the point to the Y95 for having PDAF and LED flash. It has a better selfie snapper, too, with its 20-megapixel front shooter.

In terms of their stamina, the OPPO A7 got its lead as it has a bigger 4230mAh battery.

The Vivo Y95 and OPPO A7 are now available in the Philippines for Php13,999 and Php13,990, respectively.
