OPPO A78 5G launched in China and India this month, and it will launch in Europe in a few days, covering most of the worldwide market. It’s one of the finest new 5G phones for value, but it won’t be alone on the market. The realme 10 5G, one of its main competitors, has identical specs but a few variances that may sway your decision. We’ll compare the Realme 10 5G and OPPO A78 5G’s primary specs to explain these differences.

Design & Display
Due to their cost effectiveness, these phones are not built of superior materials. Both have polycarbonate bodies. However, the entry-level 5G OPPO A78 5G is stunning, and its camera module includes two circles, a reflective stripe, and a unique back cover with suggestive color options. The Realme 10 5G is less stunning and nondescript, but its design is good. The lack of a punch hole in favor of a waterdrop notch makes both phones appear archaic, and the combination of a prominent chin and the notch makes it clear that they are budget options.
Switching to their displays, the realme 10 5G is the best choice for having the best display. The realme 10 5G offers a 90Hz-refreshed 6.6-inch FHD+ IPS LCD. The same 90Hz refresh rate applies to the OPPO A78 5G 6.56 HD+ IPS LCD. It’s brighter but has lower resolution and detail. However, they are minimal phone screens. Since these phones have IPS screens, their fingerprint scanners are on the power key, not under the screen.
Camera & Speakers
When it comes to cameras, they’re interchangeable. They share the same 8-megapixel front-facing camera and 50-megapixel primary shooter, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The Realme 10 5G’s new depth sensor is mainly ineffective, but it must be said.
Regarding audio quality, the OPPO A78 5G is superior for having a stereo loudspeaker. Both devices have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
OS & Hardwares
The OPPO A78 5G has superior software because it comes preinstalled with ColorOS 13 rather than realme UI 3.0. The Realme 10 5G and the OPPO A78 5G have the same CPU, the MediaTek Dimensity 700, which was made using a 7 nm manufacturing process and has a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU and 5G connectivity. There is also 8 GB of RAM in addition to the CPUs. Contrasted with the OPPO A78 5G, the Realme 10 5G comes out on top because of its higher maximum internal storage capacity of 256 GB through microSD expansion.
Battery & Charging
Like the OPPO A78 5G, the Realme 10 5G has a 5000 mAh battery and can be quickly recharged with 33W. The OPPO A78’s display has a lower resolution and uses less energy; therefore, we anticipate a longer battery life.
Price & Availability
When converted to Philippine pesos, the starting price of the Realme 10 5G in the Chinese market is CNY 1,337 (approximately Php 10,739), while the starting price of the OPPO A78 5G is CNY 1,425 (approx. Php 11,439). Based on these criteria, the Realme 10 5G is the clear victor.
