Compared with the R17, the OPPO R17 Pro not only differs in terms of pricing but also has a lot of advantages. In order to let everyone have a deeper understanding of these two smartphones, we decided to come in with this article, in which you should find all the differences of these handsets.
The first difference is the appearance. The OPPO R17 Pro comes in foggy gradient and condensed green color bodies. The foggy gradient has a matte back shell design, which can reduce the fingerprint collection on the back of the phone. The texture of the matte is far beyond the material of the glass. The condensed green color combines the nobleness of the turquoise with the freshness of the green, looking deep and full of vitality.
In addition to the matte color of the fog, the OPPO R17 also has a fascinating gradient of streamer blue and neon violet. These two colors are different from the Pro version, showing the effect of light flow during the gradient. However, both models come with a drop screen design.
The bottom interface of the two is also quite different. Although the OPPO R17 Pro and OPPO R17 both use the Type-C interface, the arrangement of openings is not the same. The data interface of the R17 Pro is a USB 3.1 Gen1 that supports DP function. It integrates the audio output function. So the 3.5mm headphone jack is removed from the bottom, and the SIM card tray is placed in its place.
The USB 3.1 Gen1’s maximum transmission bandwidth is 5.0Gbps, which is 500MB/s. Generally, we watch HD movies at more than 1GB. It takes more than 2 seconds to copy an HD movie to OPPO R17 Pro.
The OPPO R17’s Type-C data interface is USB 2.0. It supports OTG data transmission like the Pro version but retains the 3.5mm headphone jack. The SIM card slot is also designed on the side. So we wonder whether everyone likes to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack or you prefer the Type-C headphone jack.
Although both phones use a 25Mp front camera, there are significant differences between the two on the rear camera. The OPPO R17 Pro is equipped with a 12MP + 20MP + TOF 3D stereo triple-camera. The R17 rear uses a dual-camera with a 16MP + 5MP sensors combination. Honestly, this is the biggest difference between the two. Plus, it’s the most distinguishing feature.
The R17 Pro’s rear triple-camera also supports an F1.5/F2.4 dynamic aperture, which provides a well-captured photo in dimly lit environments. The TOF 3D stereo camera is also very technical, with high-precision 3D depth information through nanosecond infrared light measurement, bringing us from the 2D photo era into the 3D photo era.
The difference between the charging speeds of the two smartphones is also very obvious. The OPPO R17 uses a 5V/4A VOOC flash charging. After half an hour of charging test, the R17’s 3500mAh battery is charged to 54%. The OPPO R17 Pro uses the highest 10V/5A SuperVOOC flash charging. Thus, the power can reach up to 50W. After testing, the R17 Pro’s 3700mAh battery capacity was charged to 99%.
Thanks to the two 1850mAh battery core series design, the high power of 50W is effectively divided. The OPPO R17 Pro can significantly control the charging temperature, while the charging speed is significantly improved. With the SuperVOOC flash charging, you shouldn’t worry about long-lasting charging process. Charging for 5 minutes is enough for emergency use.
However, the smartphone configuration is everyone’s concern. So let’s talk about the performance difference between the OPPO R17 Pro and the OPPO R17. The former one uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, the maximum frequency is up to 2.2GHz and the RAM is only 8GB. The OPPO R17 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, the clock speed is up to 2.0GHz and there are two memory variants of 6GB and 8GB.
There are also differences in functions. The OPPO R17 Pro supports NFC function. So it can perform fingerprint payment and other operations. But the OPPO R17 does not come with an NFC function. Maybe this is not important for those users who don’t use it in everyday life. But for many, it’s a must.
Although in appearance, the OPPO R17 and OPPO R17 Pro are basically not much different (the size and weight of the phones are almost the same), there are many differences in the configuration. Especially, the OPPO R17 Pro rear triple-camera is what people have been looking for after the Huawei P20 Pro launch. Now the latter has a real rival.
