In comparison, the OPPO F11 Pro sports a 6.5-inch LCD display with a full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) resolution.
Winner: Tie as both the smartphones offer the same full-HD+ resolution. However, Vivo's AMOLED screen will offer slightly richer colors and deeper blacks than OPPO's LCD display.

Winner: Vivo V15 Pro for its newer, advanced processor and higher storage capacity.
Both the phones come with a standard set of sensors including an ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and gyroscope.
However, the Vivo mid-ranger gets an in-display fingerprint sensor while OPPO's offering bears a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Further, the V15 Pro runs Android Pie-based FunTouch OS 9 whereas F11 Pro runs Android Pie-based ColorOS 6.0.
Winner: Vivo V15 Pro for in-display fingerprint sensor.
In terms of connectivity, both the phones offer all standard options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro-USB, headphone jack, dual-SIMs, and 4G VoLTE.
In terms of battery, the Vivo V15 Pro packs a 3,700mAh battery while the OPPO F11 Pro houses a 4,000mAh battery. Moreover, both the phones support fast charging technology.
Winner: OPPO F11 Pro for its bigger battery.
The Vivo V15 Pro is priced in India at Rs. 28,990 while the OPPO F11 Pro comes at Rs. 24,990.
While both the phones share similar designs, Vivo V15 Pro comes as a more premium and complete package for the price.
Though pricier than OPPO F11 Pro by Rs. 4,000, it offers an AMOLED Screen, a superior selfie camera, a better rear camera setup, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a slightly better processor.
Hence, of the two, Vivo V15 Pro is our winner.
