2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Gorgeous, modern design - the bold camera design and the a mirror-split design with matte finish adds up to a great looking device
  • The phone looks quite flawless from the back, it features a rather flashy back cover
  • The F17 Pro measures 7.48mm in thickness and weighs just 164g, which makes it incredibly comfortable to use for long periods, be it gaming or texting
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as face recognition, are quick to unlock the F17 Pro
  • The frame and the back panel are built from plastic, but this phone still feels quite rugged
  • The display is an excellent 6.43-inch Super AMOLED FHD+ panel which promises inky blacks and vivid colours - watching movies and videos on the screen is an enjoyable experience
  • It gets bright enough for using the device even under harsh sunlight
  • The F17 Pro runs ColorOS 7.2 on top of Android 10, which is a feature-rich custom Android skin - Smart Sidebar, Quick Return Bubble, themes, and custom apps such as Oppo Relax are all present and there's plenty of room for customisation
  • Decent performance from the Helio P95 SoC - the F17 Pro handles multitasking and everyday apps quite well
  • Decent quad cameras for the price - these include a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera, a 2MP monochrome camera, and a 2MP depth camera
  • In daylight, the primary sensor captures sharp and well-detailed 12MP binned images - exposure and colours are handled very well and autofocus is reliable, which made capturing close-ups quite easy
  • The ultra wide-angle camera captured shots with equally good exposures, even though details were a bit soft
  • Portrait mode works well, correctly blurring out the right areas behind the subject in most instances, the level of background blur can be adjusted before taking a shot
  • The main 16MP front camera captures decent-looking selfies under good light, facial details are good and skin tones generally look natural - portrait selfie option is also present for you to use
  • Good battery life from the 4000 mAh battery - the battery can last for a day and half of medium to light usage
  • Charging is quick with the supplied 30W charger - it can charge the F17 Pro under an hour
  • The Oppo F17 Pro is a very likeable phone, mostly because of how slim and light it is, it looks quite modern thanks to the exposed-lens design of the rear cameras - battery life is also very good, it charges quickly, and it has a nice display
  • Looks sleek with a reflective back design
  • Front looks sharp and modern with the dual punch-hole cameras
  • Oppo Reno 3 Pro is a relatively lightweight device that’s easy to handle
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor works swiftly
  • Large, Vibrant 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display - the screen gives a satisfactory viewing experience with sharp colours and excellent viewing angles
  • The brightness levels are more than enough for any situation indoors while being enough for direct under-the-sun use
  • Reno 3 Pro also comes with Widevine L1 support allowing high definition playback on Netflix, and Prime Video
  • The company has revamped the user interface to offer a more simplified experience with the ColorOS 7 - it now offers new themes, wallpapers, icon styles - all these improvements make a considerable difference and make ColorOS 7 stand apart from any version in the past
  • Good overall performance powered by the new MediaTek P95 - everyday usage is an absolute breeze and can run heavy games like COD or PUBG on "medium" graphics with ease
  • Very good quad camera setup for the price - a 64MP standard camera, a 13MP telephoto, an 8MP ultra wide-angle, and a 2MP depth
  • In ideal lighting conditions, the primary sensor manages to capture good images, the white balance, colour reproduction, and sharpness are on point
  • The ultra-wide lens helps fit in a lot more into the frame and the quality is also decent (though, the level of detail is considerably lower compared to the primary camera)
  • The telephoto lens also does a good job and the quality remains similar to that of the ultra-wide
  • In low-light, the phone takes decent photos and there's dedicated Night Mode which brighten up the images
  • Portrait mode is decent and the edge detection is decent, you do get good dynamic range, nice contrast, natural-looking skin and a good amount of detail
  • The 44MP selfie camera takes very good shots with natural skin tone and punchy colours - there's also a selfie Night mode that appears to be more than adequate
  • Good battery life with the 4025 mAh battery unit - will easily last through a day of moderate to heavy usage
  • Excellent fast charging with the 30W included fast charger - it can fill the smartphone from 0 to 100 percent in around 50 minutes
  • The Oppo Reno 3 Pro has all its bases covered as a great phone should - it's got a vibrant and bright OLED, a generous 4025 mAh battery, and the overall camera experience is impressive, it's a considerable option (though, the choice for chipset is the phone's weak spot)
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Lacks a high refresh rate panel, that other phones offer
  • However, heavy usage bogs down the phone quite a lot, there are better performing phones available at this price
  • Low-light camera performance is average, the images lack details - there is visible noise in the darker regions, which you can clearly see - the Night mode helps brighten up scenes, but the overall image quality and color reproduction are above average
  • However, the camera performance could have been much better - then there's performance, which, while decent in its own right, does feel a little weak compared to phones such as the Realme 7 Pro and Redmi K20 Pro, which are also available at similar prices
  • Oppo has used a polycarbonate back and body which takes away from the "premium" feel of the phone
  • The device does come with the usual bloatware
  • While the Reno 3 Pro performs well, it's not the best at this price, there are phones with much better hardware like the Realme X2 Pro or the OnePlus 7T
  • The OPPO Reno3 Pro isn't a phone for everyone and for this price, it's certainly not a 'bang-for-buck' and as far the competition is concerned, the Realme X2 Pro is definitely a better all-rounder
