The difference between LTPS IPS LCD and IPS LCD is that the LTPS IPS LCD uses active matrix display which enhances the resolution and controls the temperature.   Redmi Note 5 also packs Gorilla Glass panel to protect its display to some extent but F7 Youth lacks it.

Software and Performance:

Since Redmi Note 5 was launched before F7 Youth; Oppo F7 Youth comes with 8.1 Oreo which is one step ahead than Redmi Note 5 i.e. Oreo 8. Likewise, Redmi Note 5’s UI is handled MIUI 9 whereas Oppo F7 youth’s UI is handled by Colors 5.0.

Both of these devices are using good SOC which is Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 for Redmi Note 5 AI and MediaTek Helio P60 for Oppo F7 Youth. The difference is that Snapdragon 636 is based under 14nm fabrication whereas Helio P60 is based under 12nm fabrication. So, seeing the fabrication Mediatek has come up with good power consumption and efficient chipsetRedmi Note 5 has Octa-core kyro processor(4core of Cortex- A73 processor and 4 cores of the Cortex-A75 processor)  inside clocked at 1.8 GHz.

Oppo F7 Youth also has octa-core (4 cores of Cortex- A73 processor and 4 cores of the Cortex-A75 processor ) but clocked at 2.0GHZ.  The GPUs for both devices are fantastic as Redmi packs Adreno 509 GPU whereas Oppo packs Mali G72 GPU.

Both devices claim they take excellent photos but seeing the camera specs we can analyze which one suits us. Starting with Redmi Note 5 we have a dual camera at rear position one with 12MP with f/1.9, and another of 5Mp with f/2.0. This aids in capturing good images even in low light. But Oppo F7 consists of 13MP with f/2.2 aperture camera at the rear position. With f/2.2 aperture, F7 Youth might not produce a good image in low lighting.

Similarly, Note 5 has 13MP with f/2.0  selfie camera consisting of LED flash. But Oppo  F7 Youth has an 8MP with f/2.2 selfie camera. Both features AI beautify mode on the front camera.

Oppo F7 Youth does not come with fingerprint sensor but it does have face unlock feature for security, whereas Redmi Note 5 comes with both fingerprint sensor and face unlock feature.

Now, talking about battery performance Redmi Note 5 comes with non-removable Li-Po 4000mah battery. Oppo F7 Youth, on the other hand, comes with Li-ion non-removable 3410 mah battery. Thus, we can say Redmi Note 5 AI gives longer performance than oppo F7 Youth. Also, Redmi Note 5 supports fast charging whereas Oppo F7 Youth lacks it.
