Vivo X5 Max vs Oppo R5

The Vivo X5 Max and Oppo R5 are the thinnest smartphones in the world and they’re heading to India soon to battle it out in a territory that has no other rivals. But when two phones have a difference of just 0.10mm between them, is all this wrestling over the title worth it?

The truth is that there isn’t much to be going on with in case you want to know the differences between the Vivo X5 Max and Oppo R5. Both devices look so similar, it’s easy to mistake one for the other. The former is 4.75mm thin, while the latter goes 4.85mm deep.

The Vivo and Oppo smartphones practically disappear from view when you turn them to make their sides face you, the magic trick only being spoiled slightly by the protruding cameras on their backs. These 13MP snappers both embed Sony sensors to ensure a decent photography experience.

The X5 Max manages to make a bigger impression on one count though, if you consider the 3.5mm earphone jack that has been squeezed into its ultra-skinny frame. You’ll have to use a microUSB to audio jack adapter or a wireless O-Music peripheral in order to plug into the Oppo R5, on the other hand.
