  • Great design
  • Good camera
  • Snapdragon 710 provides plenty of power
  • Insanely fast cable charging
  • No wireless charging

Oppo R17 Pro

Oppo stepped firmly into the premium space with the interesting but flawed Oppo Find X, but it followed that up locally with the excellent Oppo R15 Pro. The Oppo R17 Pro is the effective "replacement" for the R15 Pro and comes with a better camera, a boosted processor and a larger display.


Design

  • Radiant Mist or Emerald Green finishes
  • Lacks water resistance
  • No headphone jack
  • In-glass fingerprint sensor
