The OPPO R17 Pro is more than just eye-candy, it also packs amazing processing power and camera performance. While recent releases are jumping onto the dual camera bandwagon, the R17 Pro is already leagues ahead with its triple camera setup.
Design & Construction
The R17 Pro has an interesting exterior: the back panel is decorated with a captivating gradient that reflects light beautifully. It’s a bit heavy but for its size and thickness, the phone has a good balance to it. The is an under-display fingerprint sensor, while the power button sits on the right side with the volume control on the left. At the bottom are the sim card tray, a USB Type-C port, and the loudspeakers.
Display & Multimedia
The R17 Pro’s 6.4-inch AMOLED display has a waterdrop notch. When set at maximum brightness, the screen can get really straining on the eyes. Colors show up rich and vivid but even without the blue light filter off, the color configuration is a bit on the warm side. This isn’t really a disadvantage, but other users might prefer a display with a cooler color temperature.
Sound quality is good and can be heard throughout a busy room when the volume is turned all the way up. But when used for playing, the speaker placement isn’t very ideal as it runs the risk of being covered when gripping the phone horizontally.
As advertised, you can expect superb camera performance from the R17 Pro. With its 12MP+20MP+TOF 3D triple rear camera, you can take stunning and detailed photos in crystal clear quality. Colors turn out great whether it be for outdoor or indoor settings. Among the phones I’ve tested so far, the R17 Pro is probably the best for taking pictures in low-light conditions, hence its tagline: “Seize the night”
As for its 25MP selfie camera, even without a night mode it still has improved low-light shooting settings that produce decent pictures with very minimal noise. As with any OPPO phone, the front camera takes amazing selfies and captures skin tone nicely.
