- Page 9: Wrapping up the OPPO R17 Pro review
The OPPO R17 Pro is obviously focusing more on the design first and everything else comes second. It does give the OPPO R17 Pro a very dazzling look while still maintaining a good shape geometrically.
Let’s first look at the front. The OPPO R17 Pro comes with a waterdrop notch like the OPPO F9 that came before it – and with an under-display fingerprint scanner too. More on that later.
Looking at the back here, we can see that the OPPO R17 Pro is indeed beautiful with its blue and purple gradient that goes from right to left, while a curved line in the middle separates them. It’s certainly a very eye-catching color.
The color gradient actually fills up all the way to the edges of the phone and it can be seen through the sides as well. However, the beautiful colors can somewhat degraded by protective cases – even the included TPU case that OPPO included.
For whatever reason, OPPO thought including a blue colored TPU case would be a good idea. Sure, a blue TPU case might not turn yellow so quickly, but the beautiful colors of the OPPO R17 Pro is hindered for sure.
That said, the included TPU case does provide enough protection for day to day use. Still would’ve preferred a transparent case, though.
