When it comes to design, the vivo X70 Pro and the OPPO Reno6 Pro do have a few similarities. Both phones feature an almost bezel-less design on the front, with a Punch Hole notch on the top of the phone for the front camera. As for size, both phones are similar in width, but the OPPO Reno6 Pro is slightly taller, slimmer, and lighter than the vivo X70 Pro.
Both phones do not offer a 3.5mm headphone jack for earphones, but such design is more common now with most brands offering Bluetooth earphone options. The two phones share a similar look for the rear, with a sleek and stylish metallic backing. The camera bumps of the back of the phones are also similar in shape and size, considering both phones feature quad-camera setups. Interestingly, on the vivo X70 Pro Plus, the rear camera bump extends to a full square and takes up almost the entire top half of the phone.
Overall, there is not much difference in the design of the two phones. However, if you are someone who prefers a slimmer and lighter phone, you might want to consider the OPPO over the vivo.
When it comes to the features of the two phones, they share a lot of similarities with a slight difference. Both the vivo X70 Pro and the OPPO Reno6 Pro support fast charging, but the latter is slightly better with 65W fast charging. Both phones offer fingerprint sensors and facial recognition, but only the OPPO supports NFC.
Camera-wise, both the vivo X70 Pro and the OPPO Reno6 Pro have a quad-camera setup on the rear, but the main camera of the Reno6 Pro has a higher megapixel. However, the other lens on the vivo X70 Pro is better in comparison to the Reno6 Pro, like the portrait lens and the wide-angle lens. The X70 Pro also offers more photography features including Real-Time Extreme Night Vision, Live Photo, and Pro Sports Mode. The front cameras on both phones are the same in terms of megapixels, but only the X70 Pro offers 4K video recording on the front camera.
After comparing the specifications and features of the two smartphones, the OPPO Reno6 Pro is the better smartphone, winning by a small margin. The two share the same CPU and GPU, but the Reno6 Pro has more RAM and more storage space. It also has a slightly better camera resolution for the main camera, and it supports NFC, for contactless payments via smartphone.
In general, vivo phones are great Android smartphone options but the vivo X70 Pro is slightly lacking compared to the OPPO Reno6 Pro. However, the vivo smartphone does offer plenty of photography and videography features, so it is perfect for those who use their phones for pictures and videos.
