Features Comparison

What else do you want? A features comparison? For your convenience, here on a single page, we have come up with Oppo R15 vs. Oppo R15 Pro Features Comparison in which you can find exactly what you’re looking for.

Design and Display

Design-wise, both Oppo handsets looks similar – houses a wide and eye-catching notch at the front, a little chin at the bottom and outback, you’ll see a dual camera configuration (positioned horizontally) at the top left corner of the smartphones. In short, outback and out front, you won't see any major change.

Moving on to display department, both smartphones coming with the same size of the screen – 6.28-inches with a maximum resolution of 1080 x 2280 Pixels based on AMOLED Technology. However, R15 comprises up to 84.1% screen-to-body ratio and R15 Pro boasts an 84.8% screen-to-body ratio. Both screens are being protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 as well. Oppo claims, it’s a lot sharper, brighter, vivid and reproduces excellent colors. The sunlight legibility is great and the contrast ratio is also fantastic – hence it takes your enjoyment to the next level while playing games or watching movies. 


The performance department, beyond the shadow of a doubt, a saucy part of every smartphone, right? Interestingly, both devices are backed by impressive amounts of RAM – R15 Pro houses a whopping 6GB of RAM whereas R15 gives users 2 options to choose from – 4GB or 6GB. Well, there is the difference between brains as R15 comprises a MediaTek MT6771 Helio P60 and R15 Pro boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Chipset.

Both devices look to have performance nailed on paper. On the whole, these are reasonably nippy devices and one will have no qualms dipping in and out of multiple applications as well as browsing the Internet on Chrome as its fluid and normally glitch-free. Though it doesn’t feel as slick as Huawei P20 Pro but these are well under almost half the price of Vivo V9.

Moving between apps with Oppo R15’s 4GB of RAM variant will cause a little bit of stuttering and on occasions, there’ll be an animation delay while performing multiple tasks or playing graphics enriched games. But overall, it’s much faster and responsive. So, don’t be disappointed.

Storage and OS

Onto software, both devices run on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system alongside Oppo’s own ColorOS 5.0. Oppo didn’t reveal when (or if) both devices will start getting updates of Android Pie 9.0 but it’s most likely to start getting updates sooner instead of later.

Now storage-wise, Oppo R15 comes with an impressive amount of onboard memory – 128GB to accommodate your files and all other stuff with ease such as songs, images, and videos. The R15 Pro, on the other hand, also comprises the same amount of storage – 128GB for storing loads and loads of data. Whether you go for R15 or R15 Pro, you’ll have an option to take the onboard storage to the next level by using a microSD card which supports up to 256GB of external memory.


Another most important part everyone considers while buying a new smartphone, agreed? The Oppo R15, on paper, comes with a great combo of 16MP + 5MP rear cameras with an aperture of f/1.7 and f/2.2 respectively. Alongside capability of capturing detailed and bright images, R15 lets you record 2160p videos at 30fps. As far as FaceTime sensor is concerned, it’s 20MP for selfies and let you record 1080p videos at 30fps.

The Oppo R15 Pro, on the contrary, houses two super-powerful shooters 16MP + 20MP outback with an aperture of f/1.7 and f/1.7 and a solid and gorgeous 20MP sensor holds its position out front for making videos as well as selfies with your nearest and dearest. The rear sensors very much like R15, have capabilities of recording 2160p videos at 30fps. As you’d expect, images captured by R15 Pro are quite stunning, colors are beautiful with a lot of details and the focus is amazingly fast too.


There only a little amount of difference between R15 and R15 Pro in terms of the battery as R15 comprises a 3450mAh battery and R15 Pro boasts 3430mAh – non-removable. So, the difference is only 20mAh which sounds like not really a massive difference. No matter which one you buy, you’ll go through an entire day with mixed activities, for instance, playing games for a short period of time, browsing the Internet and watching videos with 15% juice left in the tank. And if you’re a kind of heavy user, don’t expect more than that. 

And here is where a comparison of Oppo R15 vs. Oppo R15 Pro in Australia comes to an end. So, what do you think? Which smartphone will you buy for your needs? Looking at where to shop?
