Let's find out in our hands-on review. We've incorporated most of the performance benchmarks that we think will give a fair performance estimate of the phone.
Oppo has given thought to the box packaging as well, which exudes a similar foggy color appearance as the phone itself lending a premium look. The phone comes with a pre-applied screen protector. The Oppo R17 Pro is sure to turn heads with its design. The aluminum sides combined with a matte glass back exudes a luxurious look. Oppo says that that the texture of the glass prevents fingerprints from spoiling the appearance.
While it is true to an extent, it does get greased after extended use.
Our review unit is the Radiant Mist variant and the flow of light reflection when light is shone on it at certain angles lends a touch of exquisiteness. At g, the R17 Pro is not the lightest phone out there but users shouldn't face any handling issues. Below the camera array is an LED flash. The cameras are excellent but Oppo's sensor choices leave us baffled. We'll come to that shortly. The camera protrusion causes a slight wobble when the phone is placed flat on a desk. There is no physical capacitive fingerprint sensor at the back.
On the left we have just the volume rockers, which are easy to press and give good tactile feedback. Towards the bottom, we have the speaker grill, microphone, USB 3.
The SIM tray comes with a seal that should prevent any liquid entry, although the phone itself isn't rated for waterproofing. Going to the right, we have the power button and at the top we have the antenna lines and a noise-canceling microphone.
The 6. At the top of the display is a teardrop-shaped notch that houses a 25 MP selfie camera. The ambient light sensor is hidden in the notch. There is no built-in selfie flash and the phone brightens up the display as a faux flash or to provide light for unlocking the phone using facial recognition in the dark. Oppo says that a lot of work has gone into designing the notch in a way that is flush with the screen. The speakerphone is not conspicuous and you'll have to look hard for it as it is neatly sandwiched between the glass and the frame.
The transition from the frame to glass is fairly seamless but there's still room for improvement. Overall, if design is one of the primary criteria that can influence your buying decision, the Oppo R17 Pro should be high on your list. Best Displays , for University Students. The 10nm SD is the first of the series and is positioned right in the middle of the flagship series and the mid-range series.
Still, the performance of the SD is nothing to scoff at, and it is pretty responsive for almost whatever you throw at it. When it comes to connectivity, the R17 Pro is well-endowed. Wireless connectivity is offered up to FM radio is not present. The usual set of sensors including compass, ambient light, gyroscope, accelerometer and an in-display fingerprint sensor are available.
Face unlock is supported via the front-facing camera but there's no IR camera onboard. There is a single loudspeaker at the bottom that offers sufficient clarity just below the maximum volume. Before we go deeper into the software, let's get this out of the way — ColorOS is chock full of features and functionality that some users, especially those coming from stock Android, might actually find that it takes time to get used to all of them. The OS also includes many apps in the base image that not everyone will find useful.
Thankfully, you can uninstall most of them and save some space. Oppo also bundles its own AppStore apart from Google Play, which you can ignore if not required. A minor gripe is that you often get two update notifications for most apps — one from the Play Store and another from the AppStore. Listing out all that ColorOS has to provide begets an entire article in itself so we'll focus on a few important ones. True to its name, ColorOS appears very colorful and eye-catching.
It is pretty evident that Oppo has taken a lot of cues from iOS, including the absence of an app drawer. Swiping to the left of the homescreen brings up a fully customizable so-called Smart Assistant that offers quick access to common apps, favorite contacts, weather, step tracking, online orders, and more.
It is more of a shortcut page than anything "smart". A swipe down from the top brings up the notification shade with big colorful icons and the brightness slider. In the Settings, apart from the regular ones, we find options to set the Theme, Lockscreen Magazine, and Wallpaper. ColorOS also offers a slew of privacy protection features and settings to secure financial apps. The device will warn you if any apps fail the security checklist. To top it all, you also get a separate Secure Keyboard whenever password fields are detected.
The Secure Keyboard also prevents taking screenshots and screen recording. Prompts for microphone and camera usage by third-party apps also show up in the status bar. Gesture-based navigation is also provided for and is very intuitive to use. However, not all is well with ColorOS 5. For one, you don't get to see any app icons in the system tray apart from the clock, cellular and Wi-Fi strength, and battery indicator so it is easy to miss notifications unless you actually swipe down the notification center.
Also, we found that notifications get delayed sometimes even under good connectivity. A more worrisome observation is that some apps such as Telegram, Discord, Slack, etc. We hope Oppo addresses this shortcoming in a future update. Call quality on the Oppo R17 Pro is very good and cellular reception was excellent even in areas with supposedly shoddy coverage.
Although there is only one noise-cancelation microphone, it works well to cut out excess background noise.
Meizu X8 has " LCD full-screen, powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4/6GB of inch In-Cell notch-screen, x px (FHD), ppi. Meizu X8 is equipped with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which can unlock the phone in just seconds. Helps you locate unfamiliar destinations. Buy Global version Meizu X8 4G 64G 4G LTE Cell Phone Snapdragon Octa can track the tracking information on the 17 Track website or Cainiao website.
You have control over the locating mode and can choose either a device-only GPS feature or a high accuracy mode that uses the Internet to more accurately identify the location. Indoors, the phone could not secure a proper fix but the signal reception was good outdoors with up to 4 m accuracy. Battery drain while using the GPS was slightly on the higher side, but the phone didn't heat up. Our unit also came with a screen protector applied as well. With a screen-to-body ratio of Viewing angles are good and the display is very much legible even under direct sunlight, although the brightness levels aren't the highest we've seen.
A major feature of the display is the presence of the optical in-display fingerprint reader. While it is cool to have one, the technology certainly isn't as responsive as a regular capacitive one. It does take a perceivable amount of time to recognize the fingerprint and also fails to register the input sometimes. The animation near the area of the fingerprint is customizable and offers some nice effects but we'd like further fine tuning of the responsiveness of the sensor as much as possible.
There is no option to change color settings apart from a Night Shield mode that helps with blue-light filtration. However, you can force the phone to use the sRGB color space by enabling it in the hidden Developer Options. There is no notification LED and the ambient display shows only the clock, date, battery indicator, and missed calls.
Oppo could have actually put the ambient display to good use to show app notifications without having to unlock the phone. The R17 Pro places a lot of emphasis on the imaging side of things.
The Camera app is feature-rich yet simple to use and offers AI scene recognition for up to 23 unique scenes. While the selfie camera uses AI automatically, AI for the rear camera has to be specifically enabled in the Camera Settings. The Camera app features an Expert mode for those who like more control over their shots. The Expert mode offers manual settings for white balance, focus, shutter speed, exposure, and ISO but does not allow changing the aperture, which is fully at the mercy of the phone. There are also some cool stickers and "Omojis" to play with but the reactions of the animated characters are not as smooth as in iOS.
You can also apply live filters, set Flash, and toggle HDR along with a new Dazzle Color mode that over-saturates the images to make them look more appealing. Interestingly, Oppo has decided to use the larger 20 MP sensor for portrait depth sensing. There is also a dedicated 3D ToF sensor that should help with even more accurate depth sensing, but we found that it is not fully utilized in regular photos.
However, the ToF sensor is extremely useful in AR applications. The phone does get considerably warm while using AR applications, though. Photo quality in daylight is very good with adequate details, rich colors, and good sharpness. The phone does tend to go overboard with the sharpness when using HDR at times so you might want to fiddle around to find the optimal combination for the scene. The AI didn't seem to be of much help apart from identifying the scene. We also noticed a tendency of the camera to brighten up the scene more than required.
The large pixel size helps a lot with night shots and this is where the R17 Pro really shines. Oppo uses a combination of AI and software tricks to reduce noise and enhance colors in low-light scenes. We found that night shots are captured well with minimal noise and color artifacts both indoors and outdoors making the R17 Pro one of the best low-light performers available. You will see some artifacts when fully zoomed in, but for the most part low-light pictures are highly serviceable. We see that the HDR results are really good for a smartphone of this class. You can choose between Efficient H.
The selfie cam also gets a good dose of AI support and a real-time hardware-based Sensor HDR feature that allows for good selfies even with a strong backlight. The AI does a good job of beautifying things albeit it sometimes feels as if the picture is overly smoothened out.
