Oppo F17 Pro is taking over the market as the slimmest and lightest smartphone flaunting two mini holes for the selfie camera on an indulgent Super AMOLED FHD+ screen with high resolution of 2400 x 1080. This is the brand’s first ever six-camera phone with the best optimization in portrait photography. It is powered by the massive 4000mAh battery and equipped with 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0.
The powerful MediaTek MT6779V Helio P95 chipset comes with a ton of AI features and camera modes. Apart from being sleek and sexy, this device has a lot to offer. It has also been compared to Xiaomi’s Redmi K20.
Display and Design
The first impression with Oppo F17 Pro is the slim form factor with 7.4mm thickness and a lightweight of 164 grams. It has a gorgeous-looking frosted glass back with glossy metallic edges and a quad-camera organized in a nice square, which is the only glossy portion in the rear. There is a power button on the right side and volume rockers are on the left side just below the dual SIM + microSD tray. The top edge has only a microphone and there is a USB Type C port, mono speaker, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom.
The company has worked to optimize every millimeter of the two tiny notches surrounding the front cameras giving as much as possible on the big 6.43 inches Super AMOLED FHD+ screen with 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution with the aspect ratio of 20:9 ratio and decent screen-to-body ratio of 84.9%. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3+, but there is no water or dust resistance. The dual punch-holes are not the bother here, you will learn to ignore them after using the phone for a while.
The screen brightness can go high upto 800 nits, making it quite comfortable to use in the bright sunny days. It can also go as low and you can set eye comfort mode. It has three color variants, Magic Blue, Matte Black and Metallic White.

Along with the powerful chipset, there is a PowerVR GM9446 GPU. This technology provides intelligent networking and rapid touchscreens to ensure smooth and rapid action, regardless of minor stutters amidst gaming sessions and switching between apps.
While every other mid-range smartphone has a high refresh rate, Oppo F17 Pro has a regular 60 Hz refresh rate, so the scrolling is not as fluid as you would get on a 90Hz display. You will get Android 10 with the smooth and delightful Color OS 7.2 skin atop it. There is an 8GB RAM combined with 128GB UFS 2.1 internal storage.
The all-new and interesting feature here is AirGestures, which allows you to answer calls without touching the phone when it is laying flat on a surface. It is quite useful when your hands are wet or dirty. With the use of both the front-facing cameras, the gesture works from a 20-50cm distance.
The six-camera combo, dual selfie and four rear cameras is the most loved feature here. The back camera module comprises a 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, 8 MP, an ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture and 119˚ field view, and two 2MP depth sensors with f/2.4 apertures.
Get ready to explore all the functionalities to experience various sophisticated portrait shots, including AI Super Night Portrait, AI Night Flare Portrait, AI Color Portrait, AI Super Clear Portrait, Dual Lens Bokeh (multi-person recognition) and customized AI Beautification 2.0.
The dual front cameras include a 16MP main sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 2MP depth sensor. There is an ultra steady video on the back camera taking seamlessly smooth videos and also the front cameras have steady video stabilization. This is the best feature available for vloggers. However, 4K video shoot is usable only when using the tripod for the stabilization. You will get good stabilized video with plenty of details when shot at 1080p resolution and under ample lights.
