At the beginning of this year, Oppo released the F15 but without a Pro version. The phone went by largely unnoticed.
Today, skipping straight to 17, the new F17 series comes in two versions – Pro and non-Pro. We got the F17 Pro for this hands-on review and let us tell you more about it.
The F17 Pro offers a strange combination of a chipset belonging to the lower-end spectrum of the mid-range segment, the Helio P95, while also boasting a Super AMOLED screen with dual-punch hole design. Other standout features include 30W VOOC 4.0 fast charging, an unusual quad-camera setup and extremely thin chassis.

Aside from the hardware upgrades over the Oppo F15, the F17 Pro also delivers on the software front. The latest ColorOS 7.2 has a couple of neat tricks up its sleeve like intelligent overnight charging, air gestures support and some additional camera features that need exploring.
