Connectivity & Ports
Taking a look at the connectivity that the OPPO R17 Pro offers, it comes with 5GHz AC WiFi as well, which means you can make use of the Unifi Turbo speeds through WiFi. It does come with NFC too, magically.
Remember the plastic wrap on the phone that shows how the dual nano SIM cards are to be slotted inside the OPPO R17 Pro? Well, here we can have a better look at how it actually works.
Its dual nano SIM cars slots face each other back to back and slides in the phone – which is exactly how the Huawei Mate 20 series’s dual SIM card slot works. However, since the OPPO R17 Pro does not support NM cards, that means the OPPO R17 Pro does not have any option for expandable storage memory.
Also, the OPPO R17 Pro comes with an under-display fingerprint scanner – which I obviously do not prefer. However, it only reaffirms my standpoint that under-display fingerprint scanners are still inferior as it is still slow and unreliable. OPPO does compensate by offering a speedy face unlock, though.
At the top of the phone we can find the two antenna lines and a microphone port. Funny enough, OPPO made the top indent inwards.
At the left side we can find the volume rockers. On the right side is where we can find the lonesome power button.
At the bottom however, is where we can find the speaker port, a microphone, the USB-C port, and the dual nano SIM card slot.
Unfortunately for us users, the OPPO R17 Pro lacks a 3.5mm jack and it does not come with a USB-C to 3.5mm jack dongle as well. That is a problem for a large majority of users from the get-go – especially for mobile gamers who rely on audio like PUBG Mobile.
