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
  • Beautiful, sleek design with a silver finish that switches colours as per angled light
  • The front is sharp and trendy with a pill-shaped punch-hole on the top-right that has the two front-facing cameras
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner is quick
  • Vivid, crisp 6.44-inch AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution - the display looks punchy and you can tweak the display colour mode as well as the colour temperature
  • Vivo claims the peak brightness of 1200 nits, which makes it a comfortable screen to look at even in direct sunlight
  • Decent performance from the Snapdragon 712 SOC - casual and day-to-day applications run fine without any issues
  • Good quad-camera setup - a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the primary camera manages good shots with ample detail, objects at a distance are visible on zooming in
  • The ultra-wide-angle gives a fun, wider perspective to images (though, the details aren't as good as the primary camera)
  • The portrait mode works well and it lets you select the level of blur before taking a shot - edge detection is good in well-lit conditions
  • In low light, the phone takes decent photos - the night mode makes the scene brighter and objects in the shadows more recognisable (though, it's a little slow and forces you to hold the camera still)
  • The 32MP selfie camera is capable of delivering some very good selfies that are sharp and detailed - There is also an 8MP ultra-wide sensor that lets you take wide selfies and fit more subjects or people into one shot
  • Very good battery life with the 4500 mAh battery - it can manage about a day and a half worth of use out of the battery in one charging cycle
  • Charging is quick, and the phone manages to charge to 83 per cent in an hour
  • The Vivo V19 is a good camera phone which nails the basics with a trendy design, crisp AMOLED display and very good battery with fast charging
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
  • The Software continues to be a relatively weak point for Vivo, with a cluttered Funtouch UI - there's also plenty of bloatware (though it is quite feature-packed)
  • However, this processor is commonly found in smartphones priced at around Rs. 15, 000 and phones such as the Realme X2 Pro feel faster because of the better processor
  • The macro camera is just average and the output is restricted to 2-megapixels only
  • However, this is not the best all-rounder and the choice of processor for this price is a bit disappointing, when phones like the Realme X2 Pro and Redmi K20 Pro offer very good performance for the price and are better all-round phones
