The back is plain and smooth with three cameras adjusting in the center. There is a camera bump however, but since it is in the center, the phone does not rock when placed on its back. At 183g, the Oppo R17 Pro can also be a tad bit on the heavier side, though that really will make the phone feel more premium. It appears like the OnePlus 6T with a water-drop shaped top on top along with a little chin at the base – and for good reason. The two Oppo and OnePlus are possessed by the identical company and this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the 2 companies produce nearly identical looking devices.
There’s a power button on the proper and volume keys on the left, while the USB Type-C port sits in the base with the lone speaker and the dual-SIM tray. The Pro can be found is two colors – Emerald Green and Radiant Mist. We obtained the Emerald Green model that’s tasteful and like the color tone Huawei used in the Mate 20 Professional. Even though the general look of the Oppo R17 Pro is minimal and elegant, the area where the screen meets the framework is quite sharp along with borders and very noticeable if you like tinkering along with your phone on your hand.
The Oppo R17 Guru is a beautiful phone using a huge display, minimal side bezels plus a premium glass body. Another bonus item in the box (for the UK at least, where it’s known as the Oppo RX17 Pro) is an soft-touch rubberized case, allowing you to instantly apply a layer of protection to the telephone. It’s a good addition too, because the glass complete doesn’t allow for much traction in the hand without the case on. Up front there is a sizable 6.4-inch OLED display with minimum bezels and a very small notch very similar to the one found in the OnePlus 6T. Watching movies on YouTube and Netflix are sharp and clear, but you’ll need to make do with all the black bars on each side when videos have been viewed horizontally.
You’re able to zoom slightly to create the video fullscreen, but just means minor cropping will occur at the top and bottom. There’s an in-screen fingerprint scanner on the front providing the phone a nice clean look on the back, even though it’s much less quick to comprehend that your print as people not built to displays. The Oppo R17 Guru does not support microSD growth and includes a 3.5mm jack – with no adapter supplied in the box. You do receive a pair of earphones so all is not lost. It will work however, and throughout our time so far with the R17 Guru it seems to be accurate too. There’s one very clear differentiation between the two (besides the logos on the trunk ) and that’s the presence of three cameras on the back of this Oppo R17 Pro, versus two back snappers around the 6T.
