Which OPPO Is Right For You – F5, F5 Youth, or F5 Red?

OPPO has released three F5 versions in three months time, the F5, F5 Youth and F5 Red and if you are still undecided on which one to get here’s a quick preview and comparison of each of the F5.

Let’s start with the flagship, the OPPO F5 was released October 2017 a star studded event at the City of Dreams in Pasay.

What made the OPPO F5 special is that it’s the first of it’s brand to have a 6 inch 18:9 screen aspect ratio and an AI Beautification for it’s selfie camera. Another first for OPPO is its triple card slot and face unlock.

Here’s the rest of it’s key specs:

  • MediaTek MT6763T 2.50GHz octa-core CPU
  • Mali-G71 MP2 GPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • microSD card support (dedicated slot)
  • 16MP f/1.8 rear camera w/ LED flash
  • 20MP f/2.0 front camera with AI Beautification Technology, screen flash

All these for only P15,990.00

Next up is the OPPO F5 Youth. The OPPO F5 Youth was initially priced at Php13,990 but was recently cut down to Php12,990 to break away from the OPPO F5. The difference? Not much really.

The F5 Youth also comes with all the bells and whistles except for a few:

  • MediaTek MT6763T 2.50GHz octa-core CPU
  • Mali G71 MP2
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • microSD card support (dedicated slot)
  • 13MP f/2.2 AF rear camera w/ LED flash
  • 16MP f/2.0 A.I. Beauty front camera

So for  Php3,000 difference you’ll have less ram and megapixles for both front and rear cameras. I will post a more detailed review of the OPPO F5 Youth on my next post.

Lastly we have the limited edition OPPO F5 Red which is just officially available at all OPPO Concept Stores. Aside from having an stunning red color, the OPPO F5 Red variant comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Other than that it’ll be the same as the OPPO F5 for Php 21,990.

  • MediaTek MT6763T 2.50GHz octa-core CPU
  • Mali-G71 MP2 GPU
  • 6GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage
  • microSD card support (dedicated slot)
  • 16MP f/1.8 rear camera w/ LED flash
  • 20MP f/2.0 front camera with AI Beautification Technology, screen flash

So after knowing the difference between the three, which one should you get? I recommend the OPPO F5 Youth, it has all the basic specs that the flagship has except for the ram and megapixels. You also won’t miss the AI Beautification and Face Unlock with the F5 Youth. Now, if you can wait for a week or two and skip your Uber rides and mocha fraps, you’ll be able save enough money to get the F5 instead. I’m not going to recommend the F5 Red as it’s a big leap from the Youth and you probably won’t have any use for the extra RAM.
