The F5 might have a bigger display but the iPhone X has an overall smaller yet bulkier build than the Oppo both having the all-screen feature, removing the capacitive navigation keys and the circular home button. The fingerprint scanner on the F5 is located on the backside of the phone while the X has their face detection id as a replacement for the scanner. The iPhone X’s sensors and front camera are found on its notch while the F5’s is above its screen.

Rear cameras on both phones protrude at the back. Two for the iPhone and a single cam for the F5. The X has an all glass front and back with a stainless-steel frame while the Oppo has a mixture of Plastic build and metal frame. The iPhone supports a single Nano-SIM while the Oppo has a dual dedicated sim tray and a slot for a Micro SD card.


Both might be all-screen but doesn’t mean of same size. The iPhone X has a 5.8” screen with a 1125 x 2436p resolution while the Oppo F5 has a 6” 1080 x 2160p resolution. Colors on the X sticks to their classic dynamic tones compared to the F5 which colors are sometimes either too bright or too dark, take the green for example. Either way, both are bright enough to see even through direct sunlight.


The iPhone X has a 12 MP dual rear camera but is it a sure bang for the buck compared to the 16 MP rear camera of the F5? Details in sharpness are almost hard to see unless on a close inspection, colors are also the first apparent difference on a first glance. Although the X seem more color accurate on our side. See and decide for yourselves. Through night shots however, the iPhone can take better lighting than the F5 which can still produce dim but great quality photos.

Front camera shots also have a good quality on both, with the X having more details compared to the F5 which removes some facial features even without the beauty feature on. Considering the price range of the iPhone X, the F5 has higher camera specs on paper. Here are more shots for you to see. Video recording on the iPhone X has 4K capacity at 60 fps with exceptional stabilization while the F5 can go up to 1080p with 30 fps with decent stabilization.

The iPhone X is powered by an A11 bionic chipset with 3 GB of RAM while the F5 has a Mediatek Helio P23 with 4GB of RAM. The iPhone runs on iOS 11.1 while the F5 on Nougat, due note that the F5 is not in its final software. Using the following benchmarking tools, we received these results in the process:

Device AnTuTu Geekbench (single-core) Geekbench (multi-core) PCMark Work 2.0
iPhone X 226058 4194 10034 4016
Oppo F5 62500 TBD TBD 3216

Still, the Oppo F5 is not at its final software and hardware, geek bench results will come out after the initial consumer ready F5 units are released. Gaming has a slightly smoother framerate on the iPhone X but differences are almost indistinguishable unless focused on. Since the iPhone X’s fingerprint scanners are non-existent, facial recognition for both will be considered instead with both being quite responsive with minimal failures.
