Xiaomi Mi5 and Oppo R9 pack different specifications and features, here's a complete head-to-head comparison to tell which phone is better.

Xiaomi Mi5 vs Oppo R9: Design and build

Oppo R9, also known as Oppo F1 Plus, packs 5.5-inch screen (1080x1920 pixels). The thin bezel feels super premium in hand and is surprisingly comfortable as well. The build looks similar to iPhone.

With the same pixels resolution, Xiaomi Mi5 packs a smaller screen of 5.15-inch display. On top, the sleek phone is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4, as listed in GSM Arena.

Xiaomi Mi5 vs Oppo R9: Camera

Oppo R9 packs 13MP of rear camera while Mi5 optics pack 16MP with many features, including the OIS 4-axis that ensures steady shots. The autofocus is fast enough on both devices. The front-facing camera in Oppo R9 gets 16MP quality, which selfie lovers would definitely enjoy taking pictures, compared to Mi5's 4MP lens.

However, judging from the camera features, Oppo R9 optics pairing is standard as it lacks HDR mode, and the quality is pretty average.

Xiaomi Mi5 vs Oppo R9: Processor

Xiaomi's flagship is a Marshmallow smartphone backed with a Snapdragon 820 chipset. Reviews have claimed that the phone's performance is on par with Galaxy S7 when it comes to multitasking jobs. Xiaomi offers no memory card slot but the highest ROM is at 128GB, followed by 64GB and 32GB model. On the other hand, Oppo R9 runs Android Lollipop and is powered by Mediatek MT6755, with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 128GB.

Oppo R9 users have to be satisfied with the small battery capacity of 2850 mAh, while Xiaomi Mi5 packs 3,000 mAh battery with fast-charging feature.

Xiaomi Mi5 or Oppo R9?

For the love of selfies, no front-facing camera offers good quality as with the Oppo R9, but despite the branding of Selfie Expert, the phone performance is apparently nothing special. Xiaomi Mi5 would be a solid choice for those who prefer a compact smartphone that packs beauty and great performance.
