Best, strongest and most stable phone I've had. 3 years later and still going strong with no screen protector

Very happy with it's excellent camera.

Very durable phone with unbelievable brightness.

Has been used for work and business.

Perfectly running apps. Definitely well worth the money for this phone, it won't let you down. Show details

Poor Oppo quality

I have had the Oppo R17 Pro for 2 years and have looked after it, provided a protective case from day 1. After 1.5 years I noticed the touch screen developing sensitivity problems and had to tap screen buttons several times, it has become worse. I charge my phone every night sitting it on a table, now 7/5/21 I have noticed the charging plug is worn and not making good contact thus charging is failing. I consider the quality of build to be poor and now wish the Samsung phone it replaced had been replaced by another Samsung (it latest 6 years until I dropped it on concrete and was working flawlessly until then). Another gripe is the battery cannot be removed and replaced. I would not recommend this manufacturer. Show details

My first Android in 8 years and I totally fell in love

I couldnt be any more satisfied after getting this phone for $600 when it first came out. I can keep writing all the good things about this phone but I am bit lazy. Show details

Constant issues

Flickering half screen is constant. Despite resetting, and all the other "fixes", and now the flickering screen is black. I reset, it comes good for a minute, then back to flickering. I uninstall software. Still flickers. Updates keep causing new problems. Huge time waster. Totally regret this deal. Show details

Very happy with purchase, would buy again!

- Battery Life is great, I get more than a day out of a charge and if I forget to charge overnight it only looses a few percent while in standby
- ColorOS updates often bringing new features. Android 10 update arrived fairly early too.
- Heaps of RAM so performance rarely dips, I don't play games but will load up many apps and browser Windows.
- Camera takes good shots
- Gorilla Glass means the screen doesnt scratch, no stupid screen protector required!
- Still has a 3.5mm socket for headphones if required :) Show details

Best phone I have ever owned

Love this phone. Never misses a beat.
It takes very good photos, is fast and relatively robust.
The speaker is good enough for my use and is better with headphones
My next phone will definitely be an OPPO Show details

Don't buy if you like freedom

Don't bother buying this if you want to root/jailbreak it. It's racist and won't let you unlock the bootloader unless it's the Chinese version and the support (if you can call them that) are no help. Show details

Love it

I love my phone. The camera is great as well as fast speeds in games and the internet I don't think I would change my phone anytime soon. I've had my phone for a while now and it's still in perfect condition

Better than an iPhone

oppos are absolutely by far so much better than an Apple iPhone.
I will love the fact that I get a fast charge in or less than an hour and it's 100% which is great for people on the go absolutely love all the different things that you can do with the Android operating system it's just great overall perfect Show details

Terrible hardware support. Only good if you live in chi

If you cant supply international markets with enough parts don't waste people's time & life with your fragile poor quality hardware!!! I had an oppo r17 and only for a simple smashed screen I had to wait for weeks with a lot of of inconvenience and disastrous ends...... Don't recommend any of oppo products at all. Na! Show details

Simple and smooth to operate

I have alternated between Oppo and another well known android phone in the last few years. I was gifted the Oppo R17 recently. I love the sleek purple design and the big clear screen. Takes great high quality clear pics, battery life is very good and the fact it's not full of pre installed bloatware is a bonus.

1 problem that im yet to google a remedy for is that some of my apps "Calendar and dosecast" that i rely on for important notifications get shut down either when the battery gets under 20% or a restart of the phone. In an earlier version i did find out how to add it to a safe list.
I do have slight problems holding the power button in until it finally shuts down.
All in all I'm very happy with my Oppo. Show details

Great Phone, Great price

Ive had the phone for 4 months and highly recommend it. If you can operate an android phone you will have no problems with this. It does everything that an iPhone or Samsung does at half the price. Takes great photos, comes with case cover and screen protector. And you can sync your iPod headphones to it also. I have also dropped it without damaging it. Show details

Questions & Answers

I love my Oppo R17 phone, but currently I am having an issue with the phone terminating phone calls. Originally I thought maybe my face was pressing the end button, but confirmed that the screen is black when held to my ear. I am starting to think there may be an issue with the phone, if nobody else had this problem.
Can anybody enlighten me.
Thanks

Hi Michelle. I don’t have this problem with the R17. Perhaps it’s worth contacting them to see if there is a glitch with your phone.

Hi I just purchased the OPPO R17
I'm trying to figure out how to set the phone up to take the photos when the phone is turned on its side also? What do I need to do to set this up please ?

Hi Lea.
Just make sure your screen is unlocked and on landscape and the camera easily flipped on its side. You may have your screen locked in settings to be portrait.
Hope this helps
