Latest update has ruined the phone. Multiple unwanted apps installed, cannot uninstall.
Unable to open links in emails, all personally set ring tones and preferences erased. Unwanted functions turned on. Phone is asking for unnecessary permission to access all personal, location, contacts etc data to readjust ring tone and other functions.
Spent over an hour on chat trying to fix email issues, looks like it will be a reset to factory settings to regain control.
Camera works best when all auto function turned off. Photos do not enlarge well.
Purchased for A$499.00.

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 :)
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
Purchased in September 2018 for A$349.00.
All you need in a phone!
Great camera, and features. Easy to use at a great price!! Totally impressed with the battery life and charging time! I have recommended this brand to many of my friends
Purchased in April 2018 for A$450.00.
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.

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
Purchased in February 2019.
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!
Amazing phone for a great price
This phone has been the best phone I've used in a while. Good quality photos, easy operating system, amazing battery life. Other Oppos also have all these features. In love!

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.
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.
Like the phone, need problems sorted
The jack for the headphones doesn't fit, it is clearly loose and so headphones don't function. Anyone else have this problem? Also when contacting the website to deal with this, I was unable to proceed as the page with policy had no button to accept?
For the price paid this is a great phone. I have had both iPhones and Samsungs and this is better and easier to use than both those overpriced brands. I am so impressed I am buying one for my wife. The battery life is amazing.
Top shelf phone for third of the price
Best phone I have bought. Done my research and it lives up to its standard. Durability is unbelievable. I've dropped it, thrown it and it still works. Apps run smoothly and the battery life is fantastic
Amazing Phone For Price!!
Bought this OPPO R17 for my 11 year old daughter. Didn't want to spend a bomb buying an older model iPhone due to the lack of storage and price. Far too expensive for a child. So upon good advice I purchased the OPPO R17 for $499 from Officeworks. What a fantastic phone! We are an Apple family, but my daughter was able to negotiate the OPPO very easily.
Beautiful looking phone.
Camera has multiple options for photo enhancement.
Video feature brings room to brightness without bright light blinding people.
Finger print unlocking and Face Recognition is seamless. It has 128GB of storage. Usually you would be paying in the thousands for an iPhone with these features.
I will certainly be purchasing an OPPO for myself also.
Easy to use
this oppo is amazing and fun its is very easy to use as well as the best sound quality you can hear. The phone is really smooth and a large display. and the camera is good
A Backward Step
I want to have the basic functionality of being able to set different notification tones for different apps, this is available on older Oppos and other brands.
But not on the Oppo R17 Pro! All alerts are the same
How crazy is it not having this basic functionality, their feedback from users is going ballistic about this and so am I.
It is a show stopper, what a waste of money!
good product minor issue
i bought this phone in jan 2019 and i think that it is a excellant phone, the only thing i can pick on is the camera wasnt as good as my old galaxy s6.
Purchased in January 2019 at office works.
Impressive phone that does most of what the top-end icons do....sometimes even better....
I bought a new Oppo R17 for my wife who decided she wanted to get a better phone than her 5-year old Samsung Note which wasn't up to the tasks anymore. Looking at top-end new Samsung's - and the prices for them....I decided they just are not worth it. Then had to come up with an alternative.....The short list was the Oppo R17, or the Motorola G7 Plus....which isn't quite here in Australia yet....Anyway, went for the Oppo ($599 from Retravision - might have saved a few dollars using ebay, but needed it quickly for travel) and she's very please...d with it....and I have played with it enough to say I am very impressed as well. I will be the next Samsung refugee. The phone looks great - and the screen is amazing. Very small notch for the spectacular selfie/video camera....It is a gem using facebook messenger. The interface and some software is a bit different from Samsung, so some learning curve involved....in a couple days we were using it like pros - so it doesn't require rocket scientists to operate.....It is very very quick for our purposes and runs smooth as silk so far - no freezes, no stutters, no problems at all....The battery life is amazing - as is the recharge rate.....30% to 100% in under an hour.....I give this one, 5-stars easy..... 19 June - update.....Just to confirm this is 5 star phone....It is still working brilliantly...The photos are all album quality....We are very happy with it.....My old Samsung is looking to the trash-can...Half the screen resolution......a fraction of the speed......I am over it and wanting this Oppo.......very very soon.......
Purchased in April 2019 for A$599.00.
Love this phone
Purchased an oppo after having a Samsung for years and was hesitant but then convinced. Well... I'll never buy Samsung again... Love my oppo! Does everything the same and so much cheaper!
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.
We have two Oppo R17's now.....and no such problem with ours....But for what it's worth I did have a similar problem with my old Samsung when I first got it....It wasn't my face pressing on the END CALL....It was just me fidgeting with my fingers while holding it.....That also caused a couple other issues....
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 ?
