Description

Oppo launched its new smartphone, the Oppo R17 Pro, in India in December of 2018 but a lot about the product was known even before its arrival. It was rumored that the OnePlus 6T would be based on the design of this phone, and there are a lot of similarities between the two phones. The hardware is the only difference.

Oppo R17 Pro

Priced at Rs. 45,990, the Oppo R17 Pro stands tall against its powerful competitors, even against the flagships such as Samsung.

Design

Oppo R17 Pro was one of the first smartphone to introduce multicolor gradient finishes. Even the metal frame is finished in a color gradient, which gives the phone a cool look.

Oppo R17 Pro Design

At the front, the Oppo R17 Pro sports a 6.4-inch display with a waterdrop notch at the top. The earpiece is moved above the selfie camera and towards the frame. The Oppo R17 Pro sports an in-display fingerprint scanner like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The sensor is located beneath the display, just above the capacitive navigation buttons.

Oppo has positioned the power button on the right side while the volume buttons are on the left. At the bottom of the Oppo R17 Pro are the USB Type-C port, speaker grill, and primary microphone, while a secondary microphone is at the top and the headphone jacks are missing.

The camera module is at the center of the back which comprises of a dual-camera setup along with 3D sensors. There’s also a dual-LED flash under it. The phone is 7.9mm thick and is curved on the sides for a comfortable hold.

Display

The Oppo R17 Pro has a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340 x 1080 resolution which makes it one of the larger displays in the market. It’s plenty sharp, and text and graphics are crisp and comfortable to read. The display is surrounded by extremely thin bezels and the notch is very tiny which gives the phone an impressive 91.5 percent screen-to-body ratio.

Display

The notch on the R17 Pro is the same waterdrop design similar to the one on the Huawei Mate 20. The notch is this small because it only houses the camera and the proximity and light sensors are hidden underneath the display. There’s still an earpiece in the shape of a tiny slit on the outer bezel which is more attractive and eats up a lot less screen.

One of the coolest features in the display are the fingerprint sensors. The fingerprint sensors are in-display sensors which is well hidden beneath the screen.

Camera

The OPPO R17 Pro has a 3-camera setup, those are a 12MP, a 20MP, and a TOF 3D sensor lens. The AI features automatically detects the environment you’re in and tries to give the optimal settings.

Cameras

You can definitely take some great pictures with the main camera thanks to this, but the biggest attraction is the pictures taken in low light. As long as there’s a small amount of light, pictures look a lot brighter and clearer compared to most smartphones.

The front-facing camera is a regular camera with an amazing 25 MP lens for f2.0 aperture which can take some amazing photos.

Performance

The Oppo R17 Pro has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 and an Adreno 616 for graphics. The processor provided in the R17 Pro is a 64-bit Octa-core (2.2 GHz, Dual-core, Kryo 360 + 1.7 GHz, Hexa-Core, Kryo 360) with an 8 GB RAM.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 sits between the Snapdragon 600 series and the Snapdragon 800 series in terms of performance. It is better than the 600 series in CPU tests, but there’s a considerable jump in GPU performance.

Reviewer claim that the day-to-day performance was good and the phone showed no sign of a slowdown. It was capable of delivering a smooth experience without stutters and there is plenty of room for multitasking.

Battery

The R17 Pro has dual 1850mAh batteries that totals up to a capacity of 3700mAh. It offers good battery life up to 14 hours. Reviewers claim that they still ended the day with around 45 percent left with the full usage throughout the day.

The Super VOOC Flash Charger is capable of charging an empty battery in 35 minutes flat. It managed to charge the phone to 57 percent in 15 minutes and 95 percent in 30 minutes.

The battery is a Li-Polymer and also supports wireless charging.

Conclusion

Oppo R17 Pro is one of the best and one of the popular mid-range phones mostly in Asia from the R series to come out from Oppo. The R17 Pro has a great build quality, amazing body and gradient design. The specs on this phone are also of the highest quality for a mid-range phone.

The R17 Pro costs around INR. 43,900 in India. In Nepal, it costs around Rs. 75,990.
