The Xiaomi Mi5 runs on MIUI v7.0 based on Android 6.0, while the Oppo F1s runs Android 5.1 based ColorOS 3.0.
The Oppo F1s gets a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor, while the Xiaomi Mi5 takes the lead with a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 820 processor. The Mi5 Pro gets a faster 2.15GHz Snapdragon 820 chip. The Oppo F1s has Mali T860 for graphics, while the Mi5 has got Adreno 530 GPU. The Oppo F1s offers 3GB RAM with 32GB internal expandable storage. The Mi5 offers 3GB RAM with 32GB or 64GB internal storage, and the Mi5 Pro features 4GB RAM with 128GB storage. There’s no microSD slot in the Mi5, so no memory expansion.
Talking about the camera, the Xiaomi Mi5 comes with a 16MP Sony IMX298 snapper at the rear with f/2.0 aperture, OIS, PDAF, and dual tone dual-LED flash. It features a 4MP front camera with f/2,0 aperture. The Oppo F1s gets a 13MP rear camera with LED flash, but it’s a total winner in the selfie department with a crazy 16MP f/2.0 front shooter! The Xiaomi Mi5 comes with a 3,000mAh battery and QC 3.0, while the Oppo F1s offers a 3,075mAh battery.
