OPPO R17 & R17 Pro review 

OPPO has new mobile phones - the OPPO R17 and R17 Pro. We say this with the new release of every new OPPO device, but R17-series really have the most impressive camera yet. If you love your mobile phone for being able to snap your family memories wherever you are, or taking sneaky selfies that capture you in your best light, you’ll be a fan of the OPPO R17 and R17 Pro. Here are the top features of the OPPO R-series mobiles:


Transferring content from your old phone

The thought of losing all the content from your phone when you get a new phone can be offputting. Think about all the photos of your family and the adventures you've been on. On that note, it's always a good idea to make sure your phone is always backed up, so you can always go to your Google Photos or iCloud. But there are some photos that you want to be able to find easily. The R17 makes transferring content from your old phone really easy. 

For Android:

You can use OPPO Clone Phone to easily transfer content like photos, music, contacts, apps etc to your new phone. Simply scan the QR code in your OPPO R17 Quick Guide with your old android phone. Your old phone will automatically install “OPPO Clone Phone”. Your new OPPO R17 opens “OPPO Clone Phone”.

For iPhone:

Simply log into your iCloud account in “OPPO Clone Phone” on your new phone.

To complete the transfer, follow the on-screen instructions.



The R17 has a triple camera with 3 different sensors. Each camera has a different aperture, so your photos will be sharpest they've ever been. The R17 and R17Pro's smart aperture camera will automatically adjust to let in light rays in fading light. This will make your night time photos clearer.

The front camera is 25 megapixels and with AI technology - up from the 20 megapixels of the OPPO R15.

The rear camera has dual 16 megapixel cameras with flash and OIS (optical image stabilizer), so your photos will be sharper than ever - even at night time!

The R17 has 2 batteries. Why? Because 2 batteries can be charged at once, so charging is faster than ever before!

We charged the R17 from 50% to 100% in 1 hour and 22 minutes. So if you're charged when you head out there's no need to worry about running out of battery when you're out and about on those sunny days.
