Vivo V25 Pro vs OnePlus Nord 2T vs Oppo Reno 8: Design and Display

The Vivo V25 Pro has a glass build and the middle frame is high-quality plastic with a glossy finish. The highlighting bit about the design of the V25 Pro is that its back panel changes colour on exposure to UV light or direct sunlight. But this is only available with the Sailing Blue colour and not the Pure Black colour. It measures 8.6mm in thickness and weighs 190 grams. The back of the phone tapers on the edges which gives a great in-hand feel. Though the phone doesn’t have an official IP rating, Vivo claims that the V25 Pro is resistant to drops, scratches and sweat.

The Nord 2T measures 8.2mm in thickness and weighs 190 grams and has a similar build as the V25 Pro. But, the Oppo Reno 8 is the lightest and thinnest of the lot with a weight of 179 grams and a 7.7mm thickness. The Reno 8 has a flat-edge design with a rather wide chin that just isn’t as immersive as the V25 Pro and the Nord 2T.

The V25 Pro features a 6.5-inch Full HD+ AMOLED 3D curved display which supports a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ certification. The display has a punch-hole notch cutout in the top centre and has negligible bezels on the sides. The Nord 2T has a 6.43-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display that supports a 90Hz refresh rate and is certified for HDR10+ playback. It has a punch-hole notch cutout in the top-left corner and the screen is topped with Gorilla Glass 5. The Reno 8 also features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate support but doesn’t support HDR10+ capabilities and is topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass 5.

All three phones run on Android 12-based OSes but none support a microSD card for storage expansion. The Nord 2T has stereo speakers while the V25 Pro and Reno 8 skip this key feature altogether. The V25 Pro, Nord 2T and the Reno 8, all have an in-display fingerprint reader. The V25 Pro doesn’t support WiFi 6 like the Nord 2T and Reno 8. Only the Reno 8 supports Bluetooth 5.3 while the Nord 2T and V25 Pro have Bluetooth 5.2.

Vivo V25 Pro vs OnePlus Nord 2T vs Oppo Reno 8: Battery

The Vivo V25 Pro has a slightly bigger battery rated at 4,830mAh over the 4,500mAh batteries in the Nord 2T and the Reno 8. However, the V25 Pro only offers 66W fast wired charging while both the Nord 2T and the Reno 8 support 80W fast charging out-of-the-box.

Vivo V25 Pro vs OnePlus Nord 2T vs Oppo Reno 8: Early Thoughts

The Vivo V25 Pro presents a strong balance of features but it’s very early to say whether it will be able to top up the likes of the Nord 2T and the Reno 8 in the sub-Rs 40,000 price range. The design is something that has found its takers and will definitely grab eyeballs with its chameleon-like finish. The display and cameras are an area where I believe the V25 Pro can prove its mettle but we’ll reserve our verdict for our full review.
