Author’s Opinion

Oppo R17:

The Oppo R17 has decent features. It comes with a Snapdragon 670 SOC that will deliver fast performance. The camera, display etc. are very good. However, considering the price, everything is bad.

Talking about the competition in this price range of around 35K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Poco F1, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Honor 10, LG G7 Plus ThinQ, Google Pixel 2 XL and OnePlus 6T. So, the competition in this price range is high.

If compared with the competition, the smartphone is just offering Snapdragon 670 whereas others are offering flagship processor Snapdragon 845.

Overall, We don’t recommend Oppo R17 to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be OnePlus 6T (Flash Review).

Note: These are my initial impressions of the smartphone. For Full Flash Review, Stay tuned with our Instagram Page.

Oppo R17 Pro:

The Oppo R17 Pro is a great looking smartphone. It has the well-built configuration, great cameras, a display that will make it suitable for an all-around performance. It has the fast charging feature will fill the battery in no time. However, the pricing for this smartphone is again high.

Talking about the competition in this price range of around 45K, the real competitors of this smartphone are OnePlus 6T and Galaxy Note 8. So, the competition in this price range is low but many good old smartphones like iPhone 7 Plus, Galaxy S8 Plus, Galaxy S9 are still available which people might consider because of the brand.

If compared with the competition, the smartphone is just offering Snapdragon 710 whereas others are offering flagship processor Snapdragon 845. No doubt, Snapdragon 710 is a great processor but it is a mid-range smartphone processor for smartphones at a price range of around 20K. As of now, we have mixed reactions regarding this smartphone because it provides a lot of features but at last, we think the price is too high.

Overall, We don’t recommend Oppo R17 Pro to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be OnePlus 6T (Flash Review).

Note: These are my initial impressions of the smartphone. For Full Flash Review, Stay tuned with our Instagram Page.
