    Inspired by light and water, the R17 is designed to mesmerise. Stunning light effects dance across every inch of the R17’s surface thanks to the light condensation layered body. When you tap the screen, it bursts to life in spectacular fashion.

    Magical Gradient, Let your differences shine
    We’re always excited when we find unique ways to combine colour and light to produce awe-inspiring effects. This has led to some truly unique colour options for the OPPO R17, each with a stunning interplay between light and shade. Choose between moody Ambient Blue and metropolitan Neon Purple.

    Waterdrop Screen. Life in watercolor
    Water is life. The unique shape of the R17’s notch is inspired by a droplet of water captured at the moment before it falls; a brief, transitional state between movement and stillness, where anything is possible. When you turn on the screen, it bursts into life as if infused with the reinvigorating power of water.

    Define yourself on your own terms, with the 25MP AI Beauty Camera
    When it comes to selfies, you’re the expert on all the best ways to bring out your natural beauty. That’s why the R17’s AI Beauty Camera lets you take control. Featuring face slimming, makeup and six other fully configurable modes as well as a live preview option, the AI Beauty Camera lets you decide what goes into the making of a perfect shot. At the same time, it learns your beauty tricks from the settings you use, so that the more you use your camera, the better it gets at taking photos.

    A rear camera smart enough to take your breath away
    Special moments deserve to be captured. The R17’s AI-enhanced dual rear camera lets you create stunning portrait photographs through natural layering. Plus, it can recognise 23 different types of scenes and up to 864 combinations, fine-tuning the settings according to the unique requirements of each photo. Whether it’s a person or a scene, the R17 helps you do it justice and capture it in great clarity and detail.

    Hidden Fingerprint Unlock, Unlock instantly from your display
    You can unlock your R17 instantly just by touching the screen thanks to its hidden fingerprint sensor. An ultra-photosensitive sensor under the display ensures crystal-clear fingerprint images.

    Fast-lane performance with 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
    The combination of a generous 6GB RAM plus a Qualcomm 10 nm mobile processor unleashes the full operating potential of the R17 and boosts app opening speeds. Plus, we’ve optimised the system to work seamlessly for your immersive gaming pleasure.

    Charge for five minutes. Use for two hours.
    With VOOC flash charge, the R17’s large 3500mAh battery can reach full charge quickly and safely, thanks to the five-core protection which lets you use the phone freely while charging. VOOC Flash Charge is always dependable when you’re in need and once discovered it is something you can’t do without.

    ColorOS 5.2 Smarter means more useful and efficient
    ColorOS 5.2 is the latest version of OPPO’s smart and efficient operating system and user interface. Also with the newly added Smart Bar, you can navigate between your favourite apps and features more freely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great value Coming from a galaxy s7 picked up the Oppo r17 non pro but overall considering the price I felt like the quality of the product definitely exceeded my expectations and I'm really happy with it so far. There's some things I'll miss alittle notification LED, Samsungs health sensor, NFC, All time display with notifications(only has clock function) and the IP rating but for what I use my phone for its perfect. Colour OS is not everyones favourite, I can see why but once you get your settings right and you're not after anything fancy it does the job. In summary very happy with this phone its fast, display is amazing, fingerprint reader in the screens not perfect face id works quicker it seems, camera's great, battery life is good, and from my early experience I'd recommend this phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient for daily use + great display Experience for me has been quite good so far buying the phone around 3 weeks ago. The UI can be a hit or miss depending on the person using it, one of the drawbacks with the UI for me was that it didn't have an app drawer for which I just used a Launcher. A few of the drawbacks I found with the phone was that even though the camera took good pictures, it couldn't record in 60fps and it could have a better CPU considering the price. My favourite things about the Phone are definitely the design as I'm quite fond of the teardrop notch and the back of the phone, the display as it has a high screen to body ratio along with an AMOLED screen which makes the colours appear pretty vibrant but not too vibrant, and most definitely the VOOC charging which can charge it in 40 minutes for me. If you are looking for a good mid range phone, I'd recommend the Oppo R17 if you are willing to put up with the few drawbacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smartphone, super camera This is my first smartphone. Although very tech savvy I didn't need a smartphone until now. The OPPO R17 was absolutely easy to set up and use. Connected to my cars entertainment system with ease. Absolutely great sharp photos. Battery lasts for days and charges superfast. Didn't want to buy one of the more popular smartphones like iphono or samsung because of price. Made the right decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome phone at this price Great performance and value for money. Less than half the price or Samsung or Apple equivalent. Very happy with this phone so far. ColorOS updates scheduled for August should maje it even better and address some common user requests.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolute value This phone is absolute value for the amount you pay for it, it is on par or even better at times than big brand mobile phones, highly recommend, I would say it's a cross between a Android and an iPhone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the price. Phone is exceptionally fast especially for users that may use it for day to day purpose. Google assistance is good. Battery life is fantastic along with fast charging. Just had 20% left and charged for probably 50 mins or less and it's 100% charged. I would recommend this phone to anyone any day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone! This is a great phone. It exceeded my expectations and I was surprised with how good the camera and the rest of the phone is. It is fast and it has no problems with pubg which is an online shooter. The blue is very shiny and it feels like a new samsung. The colours in the phone are very vibrant. The two cameras on the back make the images look spectacular. The only issue is I wouldn't get it if you are not very good at technology. You will have to get used to some of the settings but I have had a different Oppo in the past and I know how to use it with ease. I also recommend this product for teenagers because it has a lot of the stuff the newest Samsung's have. The battery life is stunning. I literally charged it for 15 minutes and the battery went up about thirty percent. Then that thirty percent lasts ages. It comes with a glass screen protector Pre installed. I live this phone.
