The proposals in the mid-range with the Realme 5 Pro and the OPPO A5 2020 have some similarities and several differences that we will discover. The purchase decision between these two phones is simple and to make it simple we will know each of its features step by step facing them.
Although in the aesthetic section and especially in the front we can find several similarities, inside it is the most relevant part, next to the back with cameras that are capable of giving us very different results.
Design and screen
Pro outside we find two phones that are made of plastic and have a large screen where the Realme 5 Pro has 6.3 inches in Full HD + resolution and in front of this the OPPO A5 2020 grows to 6.5 inches in resolution lower, only HD + . The weight is practically traced, being slightly higher because of the size in the OPPO A5 2020.
On the front the water drop shaped notch is present in both terminals and allows us to enjoy a large screen for our contents. The hurry of the frames is very good in both cases, although he relames 5 Pro improves it slightly at the bottom.
Different processor and configuration
If we talk about its processor, the brain that makes both devices move in the Realme 5 Pro we have a Snapdragon of the 7 series, the Snapdragon 712 running at 2.2 Ghz, on the other hand the OPPO 15 2020 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 , something inside It works at 2 Ghz.
Its configuration follows the same steps, giving more possibilities in the Realme 5 Pro where we can choose between 4, 6 and 8 GB of RAM along with 64 or 128 GB of storage. Only with 64 GB of storage and staying in 3 and 4 GB of RAM is the OPPO A5 2020. Both models have the possibility to expand the memory through the different compatible MicroSDs and at the same time use our Nano SIM card.
Similar cameras except in one aspect
If you look at their cameras we find four in the rear, where the Realme 5 Pro stands out for having 48 Mpx with f / 1.79 aperture on the main sensor and the OPPO A5 2020 keeps 12 Mpx f / 1.8 aperture . Its wide angle is exactly identical on both devices with 8 Mpx to see beyond. Next we find the depth sensor where both are also 2 Mpx and finally the macro sensor that matches 2 Mpx again.
In the front if we find differences, since it really reaches 16 Mpx with f / 2.0 aperture to get very bright selfies, while the OPPO A5 2020 is more modest with its 8 Mpx . Both have the ability to record video in 4K resolution and feature auto focus, in addition to digital image stabilization . The OPPO model allows us to make videos in slow motion of 120 fps and actually reaches 960 fps.
Batteries and connectivity
The battery is larger in the OPPO A5 2020 with 5,000 mAh, although with a fast charge that cannot compete with the Realme 5 Pro VOOC 3.0 and its 4,035 mAh . The addition with which if OPPO wins is the inverse load that we do not find in many mid-range models. In the connectivity section both have a fingerprint reader on the back and only OPPO integrates the NFC . If we find the audio jack in both models, as well as the maximum compatibility of 4G and WiFi networks, along with Bluetooth 5.0 and FM radio in both models.
Identical operating system
Both terminals integrate Android 9 Pie with the Color OS 6 customization layer above that does not have too many additions and that during this year 2020 is expected to be updated to Color OS 7 and Realme UI in the case of Realme 5 Pro. Next to this Android 10 will arrive, the latest version of the operating system to date.
Price and conclusions
We move on to the final section where the price of the Realme 5 Pro is slightly higher, specifically at 184 euros, when we find the OPPO A5 2020 for 175 euros. How we have been able to see both proposals are capable of giving us very good results, but if we have to opt for one of them, the fast charge, its screen, processor and 48 Mpx camera make us bet directly on the Realme 5 Pro . If the budget for this model does not reach us, it will be advisable to save a little more to make the leap to a more complete proposal even though it is 2019.
Finally we leave you with a comparative table between both models, so you can see and compare them yourself.
