Meanwhile, the POCO C65 incorporates a Streamlined Design at the back that houses its cameras and flash. It is larger with dimensions of 168 x 78 x 8.09mm and slightly heavier, weighing 192 grams.

On the other hand, the vivo Y02 has a matte finish and an anti-fingerprint back cover. It sits between the two, measuring 164 x 75.6 x 8.5 mm, and is the lightest, weighing only 186 grams.

Considering their prices, all three smartphones have good, unique designs that are aesthetically pleasing. This gives buyers a unique design experience when buying these smartphones, depending on their preferences.


In terms of display, all three come with IPS LCD panels with an HD+ pixel resolution of 720 x 1600. They vary in screen size and refresh rates.

The OPPO A18 features a 6.56-inch HD+ IPS LCD panel with a 90Hz refresh rate for a more accurate and fluid visual experience. It also comes with an 89.80% screen-to-body ratio, a 90Hz touch sampling rate, a wide range of color depth, and a peak brightness of 720nits.

The POCO C65, on the other hand, sports a larger 6.74-inch HD+ IPS LCD Dot Drop display for a more immersive large experience and a 90Hz refresh rate that can be adjusted for supporting apps. This smartphone also boasts Corning Gorilla Glass screen protection, DC dimming, TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification, and TÜV Rheinland Flicker Free certification. However, it is not as bright as the OPPO A18, with only 600nits peak brightness.

Lastly, the vivo Y02t is the smallest, with its 6.51-inch IPS LCD capacitive multi-touch display and an 82.5% screen-to-body ratio. However, it only supports a base 60Hz refresh rate.

While all three have the same resolution and screen type, the POCO C65 stands out with its adaptive refresh rate and display certifications, which provide a more protected visual care experience.


Moving to their performance and internal specifications. The OPPO A18 and POCO C65 are powered by MediaTek’s Helio G85 octa-core processor paired with Mali-G52 MP2 GPU that clocks at 2.0GHz and is built at 12nm manufacture.

Meanwhile, the MediaTek Helio P35 octa-core processor powers the vivo Y02t and is paired with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It clocks at 2.3GHz and is also built on a 12nm process.

The Helio P35 has a higher CPU clock speed and memory bandwidth. However, the Helio G85 is manufactured the latest and performs better overall.

To accompany the chips, the OPPO A18 comes with 4GB of  LPDDR4x RAM (+4GB of Extended Memory) and 128GB of eMMC5.1 storage. Meanwhile, the POCO C65 has two configurations, having 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage. The vivo Y02t gets the least RAM and internal storage, with only 4GB and 64GB, respectively.

All three smartphones run the latest Android 13 OS. Their internal storage can be expanded via microSD and has dual SIM capability.


The cameras are what most buyers are interested in as they determine how well a smartphone can capture scenes the most accurately. All three smartphones have cameras and camera shooting modes that can cater to different buyer’s needs.

The OPPO A18 has a dual-rear camera configuration with an 8MP f/2.0 main lens and a 2MP f/2.4 secondary mono camera. It supports autofocus and 1080P/720P @30fps video. Upfront is a 5MP f/2.2 selfie shooter that can support 1080P/720P @30fps video.

Lastly, the vivo Y02t has only one rear and front camera: an 8MP main camera that supports up to 1080p @30fps videos and a 5MP selfie camera.

While all smartphones share video recording capabilities of up to 1080p @ 30fps, the POCO C65 stands out with its triple rear cameras and a higher megapixel count in both the main and selfie cameras.


A test to see who can last the longest in terms of battery life. All three smartphones have a common 5,000mAh battery capacity, which is also non-removable. The POCO C65 stands out again with a faster 18W wired charging capability, providing less charging time. The OPPO A18 and vivo Y02t have a base 10W wired charging.


With their base models, all three smartphones are priced at PHP 5,999 and are now available nationwide. Meanwhile, the POCO C65 (8GB + 256GB) is priced slightly higher at PHP 6,999.
