Design

Due to a more elegant look, a more compact body and a thinner profile, Oppo F15 and Samsung Galaxy A51 are more attractive than Redmi Note 8 Pro, at least according to my opinion. Samsung Galaxy A51 has a more beautiful front panel since it sports a punch-hole display and it does not need a notch in order to boast very narrow bezels.

On the other side, the rear side of the Oppo F15 sports a smaller camera module and a more minimalistic look, while the Samsung Galaxy A51 has a bigger iPhone 11-like camera module.

Display

A lot of people would opt either for the Oppo F15 or the Samsung Galaxy A51 due to their AMOLED display including an in-display fingerprint reader. But Redmi Note 8 Pro does not have a bad display. Despite it is an IPS panel, we are talking about an HDR screen with very high brightness.

Our recommendation is not to focus on the display while making a choice between these three handsets. You would better mind about the rest of their specifications as you will find big surprises.

Hardware and Software

Not everyone is familiar with MediaTek chipsets and not everyone likes them, but we have to face the truth: the Helio G90T found on the Redmi Note 8 Pro is not only the most powerful chipset of this comparison, but it is also one of the best midrange processors for mobile devices. It is meant specifically for gamers and power users. Redmi Note 8 Pro even comes with up to 8 GB of RAM and a fast UFS 2.1 internal storage. The silver medal goes to the Oppo F15: it is fueled by an Helio P70 chipset paired with up to 8 GB of RAM and UFS 2.1 internal storage.

Talking about the software, Samsung Galaxy A51 is the only with Android 10 out of the box.

Camera

We still had no chance to test the cameras of the Oppo F15 and Samsung Galaxy A51 since they are still not available to purchase. The data we have is not enough to fully evaluate those cameras, but we can tell you that according to the specs on the paper, these devices are all midrange camera phones. So expect great photos, but not amazing shots like top-end camera phones. We can tell you the same about the front cameras.

Battery

Besides providing better performance, Redmi Note 8 Pro should also offer a much longer battery life thanks to its 4500 mAh battery. But Oppo F15 has a faster charging technology with a 20W power bringing the battery to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.

Price

  • Oppo F15 goes for a price tag of $262
  • Samsung Galaxy A51 costs about €240/$267,
  • Redmi Note 8 Pro costs about €203/$226.

At the end of the day, despite being a more affordable handset, Redmi Note 8 Pro looks more convincing. But there are still a few doubts and they regard the camera departments and the battery life of Oppo F15 and Samsung Galaxy A51.
