V9 seems to offer the least with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. All the devices come with the facility to add an external memory card to expand the storage with the help of a microSD card with up to 256GB capacity. Looking at the camera specifications of the device the 3i seems to fare better on paper as it packs four camera sensors, two on the front and two on the back. The front comes with a dual camera setup with a 24-megapixel camera sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor along with the device sporting a setup of the 16-megapixel camera sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor on the back.

Oppo has added a 16-megapixel sensor on the back and a 25-megapixel sensor on the front. Even though F7 has the most number of megapixels when it comes to the front camera while all three smartphones have 16-megapixel camera sensors on the back, but the presence of the depth sensor on the front and back in the 3i makes it more sound on paper.

F7 comes with the largest battery in form f a 3,400mAh juice pack while the 3i runs on 3,340mAh and V9 is powered by a 3,260mAh. F7 is an advantage in terms of software as both its competitors run Android 8.1 Oreo.
