Performance & Gaming
The OPPO R17 Pro is one of the first smartphones to be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 chipset. It’s positioned above the Snapdragon 660 (obviously) – but how much does it actually matter?
First, let us take a look at the list of specs on the OPPO R17 Pro.
- 6.4-inch AMOLED display with 2340×1080 pixels in resolution
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset
- 2x Kryo 360 Gold @ 2.2GHz + 6x Kryo 360 Silver @ 1.7GHz
- Adreno 616 GPU with 750MHz and 128 ALUs
- 8GB LPDDR4X RAM
- 128GB UFS 2.0 storage (no microSD)
- 3,700mAh battery
- Android 8.1.0 Oreo with ColorOS5.2
With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the benchmarks.
For both the CPU and GPU performance, the Snapdragon 710 is not that much better than the Snapdragon 660. It is still far behind the Snapdragon 845, which was unexpected to us.
Here is the most interesting thing about the Snapdragon 710. In terms of GPU performance, the Snapdragon 845 has double the amount of higher ALUs but 40MHz lower per GPU core clock compared to the Snapdragon 710. However, the Snapdragon 710 is still a mighty fine performer when it comes to mobile gaming too – just not as good as the Snapdragon 845, logically.
First off with Honkai Impact 3. We changed all of the graphical settings to its highest and at 60FPS for the OPPO R17 Pro. As we mentioned in many of our recent smartphone reviews, the new “God Kiana” character is flashy as heck and will cause many smartphones to stutter and lag. The OPPO R17 Pro also lags when casting the God Kiana’s skill.
Then comes Asphalt 9. Surprisingly, it’s smooth as butter at the highest graphical settings here.
On PUBG Mobile however, I can run it on high graphical settings with the highest frame rate settings with the “colorful” filter. There are occasional frame rate dips but overall, it’s still a pleasant experience. Other than the notch for blocking the screen, of course.
