Oppo R17 Pro review

Quick Verdict

Oppo's flagship remains the Oppo Find X, but the Oppo R17 Pro offers better value for money if you're after a premium phone experience on a budget.

The good

  • Great design
  • Good camera
  • Snapdragon 710 provides plenty of power
  • Insanely fast cable charging

The bad

  • No wireless charging
  • No water resistance
  • ColorOS is still an acquired taste

Oppo R17 Pro at a glance
When was the Oppo R17 Pro released? 12 November 2018.
What’s new about the Oppo R17 Pro? Snapdragon 710 processor, in-screen fingerprint reader, ToF lens.
How much does the Oppo R17 Pro cost? $899 outright.

Oppo's R17 Pro is a classic example of Oppo at its best, delivering a mostly-premium experience without the price tag.

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

Camera

  • Triple camera lens... sort of
  • TOF lens is impossible to judge at launch
  • Overall pleasing performance for its price

Performance

  • Snapdragon 710 is a solid performer
  • No expandable storage
  • ColorOS still gives an iPhone feel

Battery life

  • 3700mAh battery gives great endurance
  • Insanely fast VOOC charging
  • Glass back, but no wireless charging

Verdict

  • Good value, although Oppo's prices are creeping higher
