OPPO f17 Pro Review: Sleek And Solid, But How Is The Performance?

Oppo has recently launched the Oppo F17 Pro smartphone in India. With the launch, the company also claimed that it is the thinnest smartphone of 2020.

This smartphone has four rear cameras and two selfie cameras. The phone is sleek and four rear cameras look like the iPhone 11 series.

Design and Build Quality

It takes a premium phone to see Oppo F17 Pro. The phone is extremely slim and despite having a large display, it feels compact in the hand. You can also use it comfortably with one hand.

This phone is also light weight. The rear panel is glass and the frame is of metal. It has a module of four rear cameras which is in square shape. The LED flash is given in the side.

The bottom of the phone has a headphone jack, speaker grill, and USB Type C. On the right is the power button, while on the left is the volume rocker keys. Its body is of polycarbonate.

The rear panel of the phone is curved, a light fingerprint magnet and it has a dual-tone dual tone. This smartphone is also good on build quality front.

The display

Oppo F17 Pro has a 6.43 inch Super AMOLED display and it is Full HD Plus. Here you do not get the high refresh rate that companies are offering these days.

The bezels are thin and the display is large in use. Aspect ratio is 20: 9. It has a standard 60Hz refresh rate. The display is not curved and it is bright.

You get the benefit of being AMOLED when doing video and gaming. MDR content is also supported, so MDR content given on Netflix can also be viewed comfortably.

The Super AMOLED display is impressive and you can read content on it even in outdoor. You will like its screen even more while watching gaming and video. 

Performance and Software

The MediaTek Helio P95 processor has been given in Oppo F17 Pro. This phone has 128GB of internal storage with 8GB of RAM. Micro SD card slot is also given.

This performance is smooth in the daily task, the leg is less and the loading time is also less. Switching from one app to another is also easy. However, it takes some time during gaming, especially to respond to the app.

The gaming is smooth and the battery drain will be quick during this time. Here you also find its low refresh rate. At this price, now every companies should pay at least 90Hz refresh rate. There was scope to be gaming experience and solid.

Talking about Artificial Intelligence, AI features have been provided in this chipset. The company has done the same claim and on this front this phone lives up to the claims of the company to a large extent.

Software experience mixed. It has Android 10 based Color OS 7.2. In the coming time, Android 11 will also be supported in it.

Some pre-loaded apps have also been given which companies should no longer provide. Smartphone companies should check this. There will be many apps which are already there. However, you can delete them.

For the last time, Oppo has improved its Color OS and due to this it is now worth using. For privacy and security, features like Privacy Safe, Kid Space and Secure Keyboard have been provided in it.

The camera

There are four rear cameras in Oppo F17 Pro. There are two front cameras for selfies. The primary rear lens is 48 megapixels. There is an 8 megapixel ultra wide lens. Apart from this, two cameras are of 2 megapixels.

The company has introduced artificial intelligence with this smartphone. AI based features are found inside the camera. AI has been given to you in every mode, from night turns to portrait mode.

The 12 megapixel camera is the default. You can select 48MP from the camera settings. All the features of beautification have been given and most of these features were not used by us.

The camera of the phone can light up and click great photos. The 48 megapixel sensor does its job well and according to this, detailing is also available.

Wide coverage is available in wide angle shots, but detailing is not available. Using wide angle under low light is of no use, as only objects will be captured, nothing will be understood.

For less light, you can use primary lens and AI mode works well in night photography. Portrait mode does not live up to the expectation, it should have been improved.

However, if you want social media ready photos, then this camera does this job well. Therefore, according to your need, you can decide this.

If you are fond of selfie then you will like this phone. There are several beautification features with two cameras. Although many of them do not work accurately. But for social media, you will be able to do enough beautification in it. The battery

Oppo F17 Pro has a battery of 4,000mAh. Along with this, Oppo has support of Voo Flash Charge 4.0 which is basically 30W.

For saving power, it has an intelligent saving twist. It is good that you can enable and get backup for a long time despite having very less battery.

This phone is able to give only a full day of backup in mixed use. If you use the phone less then you can get a backup of a day. But in mixed use you will need to charge it in the evening. This phone charges fast.

Bottom line

The phone is sleek, the display is good. Performance is also good for daily use and simple tasks. It could have been made better on the camera front. However, as we found in the review, this Decent photos do. Battery backup could have been improved. This smartphone can also prove to be a good option for selfie lovers.
