Oppo F17 Pro has a compact form factor and a lightweight design unmatched by peers in totally midrange segments. The smartphone’s design is accentuated by a two-tone gradient reflective cover on the backside, which looks familiar but intriguing. It has an Apple iPhone 11 Pro-like square-shaped camera set-up on the back. It is made mostly of plastic, the handset’s overall build is sturdy and it looks premium from all angles.
The OPPO F17 Pro has a 6.43-inch screen of full HD with 2400 x 1080 resolution and also stretched in a tall 20:9 aspect ratio. The handset has an AMOLED screen of 60Hz refresh rate. The screen lacks different features like HDR mode and high refresh rates, but it seems to be friendly for daily use in its present form. Besides, it has a distraction in the form of a capsule-shaped punch-hole in the top-left corner. Almost negligible bezels, but a fairly big chin at the bottom, can be another distraction from a design point of view.
Oppo F17 Pro imagining is covered by a total of six number of cameras – four on the rear and two on the front. The rear camera set-up includes a 48MP primary sensor of an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor of an f/2.2 aperture, and two 2MP monochrome sensors of an f/2.4 aperture.

In daylight, the shots come out to be great but you might feel the colours to be popping out. There is another problem when you wish to take portrait shots, the focus takes time to adjust. Selfies turn out to be exceptionally beautified, a treat for the selfie lovers indeed.
