Oppo F lineup has always been interesting and we see and hear time and again that it has been replaced by the Reno series but here we can see that it is not. Oppo F17 is the successor to the Oppo f15. Meanwhile, it is a decent phone. In this device, Mediatek Helio P95 has introduced. It is the more AI-enhanced processor as we see talk more about it it’s better for gaming and camera talking here in simple worlds though. A qual camera is an interesting touch here but not out of the box, though it’s normal as we can see most of the mid-range has adapted qual camera here call it a gimmick or necessity it’s a trend now. So I am taking here to the detailed summary about how the Oppo F17 Pro device actually is and its performance let’s get started.
At first, glance let’s talk about the display of Oppo F17 Pro here. Yes, because it’s the first impression, and when anyone uses a smartphone eyes roll out at the display. We get a 6.43” display here it’s a big display here, not a huge though its standard size as we talk in this time span. Oppo advertises its the sleekest phone of 2020. A big hand like mine can hold with one hand. The resolution is Full HD, the performance-wise we have processor Helio P95 and it is enhanced for better AI performance and good gaming performances too.
The processor of Oppo F17 Pro is comparable to Snapdragon 730G in according to the benchmarks 730G beats the new Helio P95 as for a small scale. The body feels like glass but actually it’s plastic specifically its polycarbonate and there are a lot of advantages of having a plastic back. The body and the design at the back have the dual-tone finish, it’s like a gradient design mixing 2 colors.
Display and camera
The phone weighs 164 grams and is lightweight as advertised, it’s a 20:9 aspect ratio as the modern phones do. We have the gorilla glass 3+ for the protection. Talking about the cameras here we get the qual camera at back and 2 front cameras. The main camera is 48 Megapixel here it’s the main sensor. Also, we have 8 Megapixel ultra-wide shooter 2 MP monochrome and 2 MP depth sensor here monochrome is for hue and it’s like a portrait or blurry effect.
It has a dual camera for the front here, its 16 MP for the main sensor and 2 MP for the depth the device goes up to 800 nits in an automatic setting which means the sunlight visibility of this device is damn impressive as the numbers show. We get 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage also we have a 4000 MAH battery which will suffice your need and here is the interesting part you have the VOOC 4.0 30 Watt fast charging tech the device was launched in Matte Black, Magic Blue, and Metallic White colors.
Talking about the connectivity we have all the essentials here Bluetooth, Type- C for charging, and the necessary sensors like accelerometer and ambient light sensor & magnetometer, proximity sensor. Oppo f17 Pro Price Rs. 22,990 when it launched in India and in the context of Nepal its expected price can be above Rs, 40,000. It’s just an assumption by comparing the previous prices of F series smartphones. Now quickly run through Oppo F17 Pro features and specifications.

Conclusion and my thoughts
Honestly, I think it’s an okay device yes the performance however is good not that great yet to be tested. Because it’s a recent launch the camera could have been 64 megapixels, as the competitors provide the design is great though. Its lightweight feel will capture you to purchase this device. Overall it’s a good phone but not the best out there due to competition.
