Oppo R17


The Oppo R17 continues the Oppo trend of applying Apple's design ethos to Android smartphones. It does so by taking more than a few cues from the Apple iPhone XR as well as Huawei's recent P20. It's not quite as powerful or feature-packed as those phones, but it's not as expensive, either.

Design

  • Edge-to-edge screen provides plenty of real estate for videos and games
  • ColorOS remains as close to iOS on Android as you're going to get
  • In-screen fingerprint reader makes securing your phone simple
  • No 3.5mm headphone jack

Camera

  • 25MP front-facing camera allows for seriously sharp selfies
  • Beauty Mode makes it easy to tweak and touch-up photos on the fly
  • Larger aperture lens promises better clarity in low-light situations

Performance

  • Snapdragon 670 delivers a smart balance of power and price
  • 6GB of RAM is plenty for gaming and multi-tasking
  • ColorOS limits customisation in favour of streamlining the user experience

Battery

  • 3,500mAh battery should survive a full day even under heavy use
  • VOOC flash charging is both swift and safe
