Nowadays our lives have become social media-centric. But without an efficient Camera Smartphone, you can hardly visualize your delightful moments on social media platforms. Realizing this need, Oppo produces F-series phones as selfie-centered gadgets with the label "Selfie Expert". On September 9, 2020, Oppo released their latest F-series innovation Oppo F17 Pro. Let’s focus on the features, specs, and price of Oppo F17 Pro in Bangladesh.
Like the other Oppo phones, the Oppo F17 Pro comes with a stunning look. Its construction reveals a smart engineering technique that makes this gadget light-weight (164g), easy-to-grip, and less likely to drop. You won’t feel tired while holding the phone in one hand for long hours. Its slick design (6.30 x 2.91 x 0.30 in) allows you to slip this phone quite easily inside your pocket or handbag.
F17 pro’s Polycarbonate built rear-panel is enriched with a fascinating matt finish. This phone doesn’t catch scratches much easily which makes it suitable for daily use. However, under this price-range, many Oppo fans might have expected a glass-built backside.
This phone has a power key, volume rocker, triple-slot tray (dual SIM with a micro SD card), loudspeaker, bottom-firing loudspeaker, and USB 2.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector. Oppo has provided a 3.5mm audio jack in this 7.5mm thick phone that can be a lesson for many companies!
Oppo F17 Pro is blessed with a Super AMOLED panel with a comfortable screen size of 6.43-inch protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3+. It offers a full HD display featuring a terrific resolution (1080 x 2400 pixels ay 20:9 ratio). Furthermore, its superb picture density (~408 PPI) delivers mind-blowing color vibrancy that would give you heart-warming experiences while watching movies or videos. Moreover, Wide vine security level-1 support is a blessing for those who enjoy content from Netflix.
With 430 nit brightness, Oppo F17 Pro performs well in direct sunlight. However, under this budget, the lack of a higher refresh rate can dishearten many Oppo fans! Another drawback is that many low-priced competitors bear Gorilla Glass 5 while 17 Pro bears version 3+!
With the tagline “AI portrait cameras”, Oppo F17 Pro comes with six cameras in total. The rear-camera series include a 48MP f/1.8 primary camera, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle shooter, a 2MP f/2.4 monochrome shooter, and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. Besides these, you get a 16MP f/2.4 primary selfie shooter and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor on the front side of this Smartphone.
By virtue of the Samsung GM1 sensor, the Primary rear camera can capture sharp images with great detailing and exposure in ample daylight conditions. The white balance is well-maintained. The color accuracy doesn’t get hampered with unwanted saturation or over-sharpness. Utilizing the reliable auto-focus feature, amateur photographers can even take amazing close-up photos without much effort. F17 Pro will amuse you with default 12MP images, but you can take up to 48MP photos through optimizing the camera features.
F17 pro’s 8MP ultra wide-angle sensor is capable of shooting mesmerizing photos that can compete with its primary sensor in terms of color accuracy, exposure, and sharpness. Though details may be a bit less, the distortion is limited.
The Portrait mode can efficiently blur out the background areas. You can easily adjust the level of blurring before shooting. The image quality of the depth sensor delivers proper edge detection and nice sharpness. The skin tone varies a bit from real-life due to a slight whitening effect. Under the portrait mode, F17 delivers fine-tuned images that look more emotive.
In artificial light, the images still hold the sharpness and details. In the extremely low light conditions, noises are visible on the captures and the detailing gets a bit weaker. Don’t forget to activate the night mode while shooting in darkness. This feature alleviates the quality of images by fixing the noises, grains, and exposure. To capture better photos, try to hold the phone stable.
This phone lacks any macro shooter. This is not a big issue, as a macro camera available in most of the contemporary phones has little to offer. Instead of a macro lens, 17 Pro is provided with a monochrome shooter which we have also seen in Oppo Reno 4. Activating the OP7 filter under portrait mode, you can capture black-and-white images making the subject look more dramatic.
Let’s turn to the front cameras. The 16MP main shooter captures gorgeous selfies under adequate light. The facial details and skin tones look close to natural. Turning off the beauty mode realistic selfies can be captured. The 2MP depth sensor offers sharp-edged selfies under Portrait mode in good light conditions.
Overall, the image quality is lovely. While other phones are boasting on megapixels, Oppo is prioritizing over professional image processing that makes this brand stand out from others. This phone is enriched with a bunch of AI features such as AI Portrait color, AI super Night Portrait, AI Super Clear Portrait, AI Beautification2.0, etc. Utilizing these features you can further optimize the images.
Oppo F17 pro can shoot 4k videos at 30fps resolution with the primary rear camera, but you have to sacrifice stabilization and compromise on color accuracy. The stabilization feature is available if video is captured at 1080p resolution. You can also shoot slo-mo videos at 1080p resolution. With the ultra-wide-angle 8MP rear shooter 1080p videos can be captured without stabilization.
Additionally, the front-facing shooter is capable of recording 1080p videos with acceptable clarity and audio quality. Thanks to Oppo for providing, the ‘Ultra Steady Mode’ on the front sensor that allows you to enjoy stabilization while shooting videos.
Oppo F17 Pro is equipped with an octa-core processor with Cortex A-75 architecture featuring 2.2 GHz clock speed at maximum. In this phone, Mediatek Helio P95 (12 nm) chipset has been applied with PowerVR GM9446 GPU. This combination is expected to offer super-swift performance while day to day usage and browsing. However, under this budget competitors are offering more advanced gaming-friendly chipset. Oppo didn’t build this phone targeting the gamers! You can still play PUBG in medium settings with some lags.
Oppo F17 Pro runs on ColorOS 7.2 on top of Android 10. The intelligent security features of ColorOS can make your user-experience flawless. What is more, F17 Pro is programmed with an anti-lag algorithm that enhances its performance through efficient RAM management. Buying this gadget you get 128 GB internal storage coupled with 8GB RAM. You can install a huge amount of apps and still enjoy butter smooth experience due to its adequate RAM capacity.
The F17 Pro appears as a next-generation phone by virtue of ‘Air Gestures’. This feature allows you to pick up calls, navigate apps or games from distance (about 25-50 centimeters) through waving hands. Furthermore, the networking performance of this phone is very pleasing even in the lifts, basements, or closed rooms. On this phone you get necessary programs like Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, FM radio, etc. UFS 2.1 data transfer technology makes Oppo F17 pro handier for the professionals.
Oppo F17 Pro is powered by a 4015 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery. This phone can serve you for about one day with 7 to 8 hours of SOT, even if used heavily. However, while the budget phone Galaxy M21 is offering a 6000mAh battery at a much lower price, F17 Pro may disappoint you.
Don’t worry! The provided 30W VOOC 4.0 fast charger can recharge this device up to 50% in 30 minutes and 100% within 55 minutes. Furthermore, activating the futuristic feature ‘AI Night Charging’ you can enhance the battery life of this phone through slow charging. This smart feature charges the phone analyzing your sleeping pattern.
Oppo F17 Pro (8GB/128GB) is currently available at BDT 27,990 in Bangladesh. However, the price may change upon company policy.
With an elegant look, Oppo F17 Pro appears as the sleekest phone of 2020. Its Super AMOLED display would make your movie moments breathtaking. With 6 AI Portrait cameras, it can deliver captivating photos for social media. Its clever software optimization delivers rapid performance. However, this phone might do better, if provided with the latest chipset, higher refresh rate, and glass-built back. For the gamers, F17 pro is not recommended. Overall, Oppo F17 Pro can be the right pick for those who are looking for a phone with stylish looks, marvelous display, expert image quality, swift navigation, and fast charging.

This phone works on the platform of the Octra-core processor with Qualcomm SDM665 Snapdragon 665 (11 nm) chipset and Adreno 610 GPU.

With 400 nit brightness, Redmi 9 performs great under direct sunlight.
Redmi 9 comes with an advanced processor called Mediatek Helio G80 that offers standard performance in gaming.
