The high-end is increasingly at odds and this is partly because the manufacturers’ OPPO and Realme have come up with more than interesting options.
There are many keys that we must look at when buying a new mobile, especially if it is high-end. For that reason we are going to focus on each of its characteristics to let you know what each of them is better and that you can make the best purchase possible without spending more than necessary because, in the end, we will know their best offers.
High-level designs and displays
In both cases, we are faced with two smartphones that show us a very current style with rear cameras in a vertical position and front cameras in the shape of a hole. Both include a clean practical rear and pass the fingerprint reader to the screen, thus taking advantage of the AMOLED technology of both panels.
They are two phones made not the best of the best, in the case of the OPPO based on the aluminum alloy to obtain a weight of 172 grams and the Realme X50 Pro is heavier and thicker at 205 grams that are made of polycarbonate and glass.
The screens are made to enjoy, in both cases created by Samsung but with different sizes. Slightly larger on the OPPO at 6.5 inches and 6.44 inches for the Realme X50 Pro.
They share many features on the screen, from Full HD + resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, and 180Hz touch response rate, plus HDR10 + and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection but nevertheless the OPPO model has a curved screen and the Realme is more classic.
Which of the two is more powerful?
We can see in their specifications that we are facing two authentic high-end processors that include Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and where the Realme X50 Pro is a little faster thanks to including the Snapdragon 865.
On the other hand, inside the OPPO Reno4 Pro, we come across the Snapdragon 765G, which has plenty of power to complete the most demanding processes and even play games with better graphics.
In them, we have the Adreno 620 GPUs for OPPO and the Adreno 650 in the Realme X50 Pro with different options. The Realme offers us a variety that starts at 8 GB of RAM + 128 or 256 GB and also another option with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB. OPPO, on the other hand, only has an option of 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory.
In technologies, the Realme X50 Pro is more advanced by including UFS 3.0 memories and LPDDR5 RAM, something that we will notice slightly but must be mentioned. In neither case can we use external memory cards to expand storage.
Duel of cameras
We come to the cameras, a very important section when making our purchase decision and where the differences will again be key. In the first place, we come across 48 Mpx and 64 Mpx main cameras respectively for OPPO and Realme, both with good aperture and which will offer us very similar results.
The second of its lenses is the wide-angle + macro where OPPO offers us 48 Mpx against the 8 Mpx of Realme. And we come to a key lens because although both phones have a telephoto lens, the Realme X50 Pro’s zoom is more capable with 20 increases against the 5 increases of OPPO.
Finally, Realme adds a lens over 2 Mpx that only captures information in black and white for specific photography and improves artificial intelligence in portrait mode. Moving on to the front section, we have 32 Mpx selfies cameras on both phones and an addition regarding the characteristics of the Realme X50 Pro such as its second 8 Mpx front lens with a 105-degree angle of view for selfies with more people.
Battery and connectivity
We have mobile phones with 5G before us and therefore ready for tomorrow, but they also include NFC for mobile payments or other functions, the possibility of using two SIMs at the same time, and Bluetooth 5.1 LE.
All this with large 4,020 mAh batteries in the OPPO Reno4 Pro and 4,200 mAh for Realme. They coincide again in 65W fast charging for both smartphones, one of the best that we can currently find and with which charging the mobile takes less than a full hour.
ColorOS vs Realme UI
In both cases, we are currently going to find Android 10 and some layers that have similarities between them. Realme UI comes from ColorOS and that’s why the similarities are so great. In both cases, we are facing mobiles that will be updated in the months’ awards to the Android 11 version, and with it, we can enjoy ColorOS 11 and Realme UI 2.0 with more customization options and improvements.
Prices and purchase recommendation
Before staying with one of the two mobiles it is very important that we put their prices on the table, a very important point if we want to take the mobile with the best offer and features.
Starting with OPPO’s Reno4 Pro we find it in its version with 12 + 256 GB for a price of 799 euros but taking into account that it includes Bang & Olufsen H4 headphones valued at 300 euros. In the case of the Realme X50 Pro in its same version, we have it for 499 euros, which leaves us a price difference to consider.
For the price, the OPPO Reno4 Pro offers a gift that if we are interested has a great relationship and if we do not want it we can sell it or give it away and it would leave us both phones at the same 499 euros.
For the same price, doubts remain high. Looking for power, better zoom, and a little more batteries, buying the Realme X50 Pro is the best option, although if we want a curved screen, ColorOS, and everything else in what it contains, the OPPO Reno4 Pro is another great option.
