Another mid-range comparison to look out for is the OPPO Reno4 and Vivo V19 Neo. Both are under P20,000 and feature nearly the same spec sheet. But the question is — which of the two offers the better value?

Which is the better buy between the OPPO Reno4 and Vivo V19 Neo?

Design and Display

With the Reno4 and V19 Neo, they look more like from the same brand, thanks to their finishes and camera placement. But with V19 Neo, it has that contrasty color that’s slowly being replaced by subtle matte or frosted finish, much like the Reno4. While both can be had in blue colors, OPPO’s secondary color is black, and white for Vivo. It’s an all-polycarbonate for the two, but the V19 Neo is slightly thicker and heavier in comparison. If you’re not a fan of huge camera humps, then you’re better off with this phone. If not, Reno4 proudly displays a more updated camera module design. On top of that, fingerprint smudges are nearly invisible, due to the finish. Even only by hair, Reno4 wins the design category.

Quality-wise, you probably won’t see any difference between the two screens. Both are sporting 6.4″ FHD+ Super AMOLED, which naturally provides punchy colors and true blacks. V19 Neo only has the advantage of extra protection, thanks to Gorilla Glass. Additionally, the pinhole cutout is so tiny, especially when compared to the pill-shaped cutout of the Reno4. Provided they’re of OLED — the in-display scanner is your way for biometric. Because of the small cutout difference, we’re giving this one to V19 Neo. 

Performance

Snapdragon 720G vs Snapdragon 675 – There’s no question that Reno4 is the more capable phone when it comes to multitasking and gaming. Qualcomm’ Snapdragon 720G is newer and even features software enhancements to improve the gaming experience. OPPO’s newest mid-range phone is even carrying the latest Android 10 version, with Color OS 7.2 on top. But to be fair with the V19 Neo, both are packing 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. And despite Vivo’s Snapdragon 675, which is turning two years old this October, the company must have done some sort of magic to make it perform even better than before. The chipset is clearly showing its age in some demanding apps, but synthetic benchmarks gave it a boost in numbers. On top of that, we always know that the 675 is a power-efficient chipset. 

It’s obvious that the Reno4 is the better phone in this regard, but you shouldn’t sleep on V19 Neo, especially if you’re looking to save more battery and not playing too many games.

Cameras

On paper, the Reno4 and V19 Neo are in a dead heat. The 48MP sensor from last year is still here, and video recording still goes up to 4K@30fps. It only means that it’s going to come down to the built-in camera app and its features. Both OPPO and Vivo are known for their beautification features and skin smoothening, so if you’re into that, you won’t go wrong either way. 

Reno4 is boasting AI Color Portrait, steady video selfie, 960fps Smart Slo-Mo, among others. The former isolates the subject in color while keeping the background in monochrome and blur. For the latter, the video captures 240fps at 720p and adds additional frames to make it 960fps. In V19 Neo’s case, it’s all about making you look good on camera. The front-facing selfie supports Super Night Mode, much like how regular Night mode works. On top of that, there’s a software that suggests poses to make your selfies more creative. 

Like the performance, this is a tie for us. We feel like it’s going to come down to user preference, whether you like a more capable selfie camera or feature-packed main cameras. 

Audio

Neither of the two uses stereo speakers, so don’t expect too much from the south-firing mono speaker. At the very least, the audio jack is still present. You are required to download third-party apps, though, if you want to improve sound quality. Regardless, this is another tie.

Battery

Vivo V19 Neo has the lead in battery capacity, thanks to 4500mAh. It’s also expected to last longer than Reno4’s 4015mAh due to the low-power chipset. However, charging time is longer at 18W. OPPO trumps its competition with 30W, getting you up to 50% in 20 mins only. Again, this is a tie for us. It’s up to you whether you want longer runtimes or faster charging.

Verdict

Reno4 is retailing for P18,990 while P17,990 for V19 Neo. I guess you can all OPPO’s newest phone a tweaked version of Vivo’s as most of the specs is the same. But, we can’t deny the fact that Reno4 is the more superior phone between the two. Provided you have 30W fast charging — it’s best to deal with shorter battery life than an aging performance.

  1. it’s best to deal with shorter battery life than an aging performance.- Can’t agree more, also the Reno 4 has a better design, as this is also the template for the OnePlus Nord, if i am not mistaken.
