As you can tell from the specifications, the OPPO F17 Pro is overpriced. So let’s see whether you should buy this newly launched phone or not?
Is it Worth Buying OPPO F17 Pro?
No, OPPO V17 Pro is not worth buying because it’s an overpriced smartphone. The phone has Plastic Build, MediaTek P95 SoC, Quad camera with 2+2MP sensors, and OPPO is charging Rs 22,990. Oppo F17 Pro is not value for money smartphone, you can get a better phone at a cheaper price with better specifications, it’s better to skip this phone.
There are many people who will buy OPPO F17 Pro because OPPO has a huge user base in the offline market. This phone should have launched at 15k because it’s not worth the 23k price tag. There are phone like, POCO X2, Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, RealMe X2 and even RealMe 6 Pro which has better speciation and it costs almost 17k.
Coming back to OPPO F17 Pro, the phone also has 4,000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging support which can charge 50% in 30 Minutes, 100% in 53 Minutes. It comes with 6.43 inches FHD+ AMOLED display with 60Hz screen refresh rate.
If you want to buy a new phone below 20k in India then I would say go with POCO X2 or RealMe 7 Pro. Oppo F17 Pro is a good phone but it’s priced at 23k, I feel like OPPO is aksing more for what they are offering. OPPO is focusing on Offline market, so if you see local shop anywhere, then go and say, I want to buy a new phone and guess what shopkeeper will suggest OPPO F17 Pro.
Oppo F17 Pro is an offline centric smartphone which is also available online. One more thing, those Quad cameras is just for marketing, only two sensor will be helpful in day to day use, 2MP+2MP sensor is just addons.
Oppo F17 Pro is an overpriced smartphone, so it’s better to skip and look for a better phone. There are many phones you can buy under Rs 20,000 in India with better specifications but if you really want OPPO brand then this could be a good option.
OPPO F17 Pro will be available from 7th September 2020 from Amazon IN website.
