From the screen size, OPPO K5 has an advantage. On the back of the fuselage, because the Huawei nova 5Z is still unlocked using a module, the fingerprint module is also retained on the back of the fuselage, while the OPPO K5 uses a light fingerprint to unlock, which makes the back of the fuselage more compact.

Therefore, OPPO K5 is also the fastest mobile phone in the current thousand yuan machine market.

From the lens configuration point of view, the 64-megapixel four-camera module of the OPPO K5 is significantly better than the 48-megapixel module of the Huawei Nova 5Z, and the quality of the photos taken is comparable to the flagship product. In addition, the OPPO K5's front-facing 32 million AI beauty lens uses a newly upgraded skin analysis algorithm to make selfies more natural and real,which can be said to be the favorite of young ladies.

In terms of performance, OPPO K5 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, and the overall performance is better than Huawei's Nova 5Z's Kirin 810.
