It’s been awhile since I’ve heard from Meizu. They were relatively quiet throughout the year, despite numerous kiosks in SM Cyberzones across the country.

There’s good news, though, because it looks like that’s about to change. They may be gearing up to make their presence felt in the Philippines once again with the launch of their latest flagship, the Meizu 16th.

The OPPO R17 Pro is one of the brand’s best smartphones. Here is our quick review of OPPO’s latest flagship.

OPPO R17 Pro

The OPPO R17 Pro launched in the Philippines last November. It turned a lot of heads when the price was announced. Myself included.

It was little higher than I would have expected, given the spec sheet. But after using it for awhile, my perception of value-for-money and the way I judge a phone based on specs, has changed.

Spoiler: This is a really good phone.

OPPO R17 Pro review

Before we proceed with the review, here’s the R17 Pro’s specs at a glance.

OPPO R17 PRO SPECS:

SPECS OPPO R17 PRO
Display 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED Waterdrop Screen (2340 x 1080, 402ppi)
Corning Gorilla Glass 6, 91.5% Screen-to-Body Ratio
Processor 2.2GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Processor
GPU Adreno 616 GPU
RAM 8GB RAM
Storage 128GBStorage
Rear Camera 12MP + 20MP + 3D TOF Triple Rear Camera, Variable Aperture (f/1.5 – f/2.4), LED flash
Front Camera 25MP Front Cameras, f/2.0
Connectivity 4G LTE, Dual SIM
Wi-Fi Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Dual Band
Bluetooth Bluetooth v5.0
GPS GPS, AGPS, GLONASS, BDS
Others In-Display Fingerprint Scanner, Face Unlock, USB Type-C Port, NFC
OS ColorOS 5.2, Android 8.1 Oreo
Dimensions 157.6 x 74.6 x 7.9 mm; 183 g
Battery  3,700 mAh Battery, 2x 1,850 mAh, 50W SuperVOOC Charging Technology

The R17 Pro’s retail package consists of the handset, a blue-green jelly case (which, by the way, compliments the color of the phone), a VOOC travel charger, a USB Type-C cable, and a pair of earphones.

OPPO R17 Pro review

Design and Build Quality

From the front, the OPPO R17 Pro looks like the OPPO F9. It has a 19:5 body with clean lines, a minimalist look, and a sleek body.

When you turn it over is where it gets interesting. You have a glass back that looks like metal, the vertical rear camera in the middle, and OPPO’s logo just below it. The gradient color looks fantastic. It has a cloudy finish that gives it a premium feel.

OPPO R17 Pro review

OPPO R17 Pro review

At the top you have the secondary microphone. On the left is the volume rocker, and on the right you have the power button. Both are within easy reach of your thumb and index finger.

The bottom has the speaker, the main microphone, a USB Type-C port, and the SIM tray.

OPPO R17 Pro review OPPO R17 Pro review OPPO R17 Pro review

Display and UI

The OPPO R17 Pro fronts a sharp 6.4-inch full HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. It also has a waterdrop notch that, together with the tiny bezels, give it a 91.5% screen-to-body ratio.

As an AMOLED screen, the display is bright and colorful with good viewing angles, even in direct sunlight. It is plenty sharp as well with a pixel density of 402ppi. I daresay that this is one of OPPO’s most beautiful displays.

OPPO R17 Pro review

The R17 Pro runs on ColorOS 5.2 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. It is inspired by iOS, albeit more colorful. It has large icons with a launcher that has all the apps on the screens and no app drawer.

It also has a Smart Assistant that displays all kinds of information, such as the weather, calendar entries, contacts, and more.

OPPO R17 Pro review

Performance and Benchmarks

The R17 Pro’s chipset is actually the topic of most conversations about this phone. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, paired with an Adreno 616 GPU, 8GB RAM, and 128GB of storage. Many have the opinion that it’s not enough. But the truth of the matter is that it’s a very good processor.

It’s more than enough for everyday tasks and most games. Basic navigation is butter smooth and very responsive. The animation frame rate is impressive. Apps and games open fast. There are no lags anywhere. You really won’t notice that it’s running on a mid-range chip.

OPPO R17 Pro review

As for the other functionalities, the in-display fingerprint scanner is just okay. It works. It’s not as fast as a capacitive scanner, but it’s not slow either. Face unlock is fast and makes up for this.

Related: OPPO R17 Pro camera quick review; Sample shots, night mode and more

The single speaker at the bottom sounds good. It’s a bit tinny. It is loud though. It’s more than enough for the occasional YouTube video or Netflix binge.

Benchmark scores:

  • AnTuTu Benchmark – 168, 239 points
  • Geekbench -1,924 (Single-Core), 5,997 (Multi-Core)

Cameras

We’ve covered the OPPO R17 Pro’s cameras on a separate review. You can check this LINK for the details.

The handset has a triple camera setup consisting of a 12MP + 20MP + 3D TOF sensor. It boasts a variable aperture of f/1.5 and f/2.4, giving it low light powers usually found on Huawei, Apple, and Samsung flagships.

For selfies, it has a 25MP front camera with an aperture of f/2.0.

OPPO R17 Pro camera review

Bottomline is it has great cameras. The R17 Pro can definitely deliver. Especially the night mode, where I think they have something special in their hands.

Battery

The OPPO R17 Pro is powered by two 1,850mAh batteries for a total of 3,700mAh. The setup allows the phone to charge faster, especially with the 50W SuperVOOC brick that came with it. The bi-cell design is supposed to make it safer, and boost battery performance and charging speed.

oppo r17 pro review

I am happy to say that it does. Charging speed is surprisingly fast. I was able to get a full charge at the 40 minute mark.

And the battery life? It’s really good. You can get a full day of use, and possibly more if you’re a light to moderate user.

Conclusion

A lot was said about the OPPO R17 Pro when it launched, but you can’t deny that it is good phone. It’s not perfect, but it’s really good. Performance is great. It has a premium build and an eye-catching design. Battery life is impressive, and the SuperVOOC is game changing.

There is still room for improvement, in my opinion. A faster in-display fingerprint scanner would have been nice. Maybe, add wireless charging too.

OPPO R17 Pro review

Another point of contention is the price. At PHP38,990, the R17 Pro is expensive, nearing phones with flagship processors. But if you take into account the phone as a whole package, then you will find yourself looking at it in a different perspective.

Overall, if what you want is a really good OPPO smartphone, then you should look no further than the OPPO R17 Pro.

We take a quick look at the OPPO R17 Pro’s much talked about cameras. The night mode is awesome!

OPPO R17 Pro Cameras

When the OPPO R17 Pro was announced, the company was so proud of its camera capabilities, building a lot of hype, especially the night mode.

This piqued my curiosity. And as the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. So I took a few shots to see how it performs. And the results? Well, to my surprise, it is really good.

Despite the triple camera billing, the R17 Pro is essentially a dual camera phone. It has a 12MP + 20MP sensor setup. The third one is a 3D TOF lens, which I think will be used for 3D scans. For selfies, it is equipped with a 25MP shooter.

Like Samsung’s latest flagship phones, the R17 Pro’s main cameras come with variable apertures of f/1.5 and f/2.4. This gives it added flexibility, especially in low light situations.

The handset also features AI technology that assists its cameras during night mode, much like what Huawei did with the P20 and Mate 20 series.

Camera Performance

Photos from the R17 Pro turn out quite well. Images have good saturation and sharpness, with pleasing colors. It can, in my opinion, hold its own against the powerhouses from Huawei and Samsung.

Here are some sample shots from the R17 Pro.

I am happy to report that even the bokeh of the background looks great.

Night Mode

The R17 Pro’s Night Mode is a something special. It is good. The phone uses an AI-powered long exposure method developed by Huawei.

Images shot in Night Mode have good exposure. Check out our sample shots below and you be the judge.

Selfies

OPPO has long been selfie experts, so it’s not a surprise that they’ll do well in this category. Selfies from the R17 Pro look good with nice details and colors. Shooting against the light though, causes the image to overexpose.

Conclusion

Camera-wise, the R17 Pro can deliver. OPPO has done a tremendous job in this category. Especially the night mode, where I think they have something special in their hands.

I know a lot was said when the OPPO R17 Pro debuted in the Philippines. It’s price of PHP38,990 was a lot higher than what I would have liked. But for the cameras alone, the phone is worth your money.

I hope OPPO continues to build on what they have started here. I am excited to see what they have in store for us in the future.

The OPPO R17 Pro is now available in selected stores nationwide with a price of PHP38,990.
