The Chinese smartphone company Oppo today refreshed its Reno series in India with the introduction of the 7th generation of its Reno devices. The company has brought Oppo Reno 7 5G and Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G to the Indian market. The Indian variant is quite different from the Chinese variant, which was launched earlier.
As the name suggests Pro variant comes with improved features and today we will be comparing the device with the Vivo V23 Pro 5G, which is also the latest Chinese counterpart that is priced under Rs 40,000 in the nation.

In terms of design and construction, both phones appear luxurious and have a distinct form factor. However, we like the Vivo due to its colour-changing design and curved panel, which gives it a more premium feel. Oppo Reno, on the other hand, features a very basic AMOLED flat display, yet both displays offer a 90Hz refresh rate.
Vivo also offers a somewhat larger display in comparison. Nowadays, a punch-hole camera cut out design is fairly popular, like Oppo has supplied on the Reno 7 Pro 5G, although Vivo smartphones have a larger notch. But that’s not a problem because it has not one, but two selfie cameras. Yes, it has an extra super-wide selfie camera, which is useful for group selfies.
Both the Oppo and Vivo smartphones are equipped with a MediaTek engine, although we would have liked the more powerful and quicker Snapdragon 888 chipset, both phones are capable of handling intensive games. Vivo’s rear camera combinations are also excellent, with a 108MP main sensor, which means you’ll get high-resolution images.
We can’t deny that the Vivo V23 Pro’s specifications have surpassed those of the Oppo Reno 7 Pro. There is no significant difference in cost, thus the Vivo V23 Pro 5G is our obvious winner. For us, it is the finest value for money device with top-notch features and a distinctive appearance, thus without a question, Vivo is our recommendation.
