Battery & Charger

Looking at the composition of 6+2 cores on the Snapdragon 710, it is expected that the OPPO R17 Pro will last for quite a long time in our battery life test – and we are right. Take a look at the chart below.

It lasts for 13.65 hours which is decent. The 3,700mAh battery is indeed small but thanks to the chipset’s efficiency, it can last for a long time.

To put things in perspective, I played PUBG Mobile with this phone when I charged it to 100% for 2 hours. When I checked back after 2 hours, I still have 67% battery left. Fantastic!

But then again, how fast does the OPPO R17 Pro takes to charge?

Charger

One thing that OPPO prides themselves over is the SuperVOOC technology. They are the pioneers of the magnificently super fast charging technology since many years ago and SuperVOOC is considered their second generation of this technology.

The charging brick looks like a typical smartphone charger, but the included cable is a lot more thicker compared to other cables that we have used. The SuperVOOC charger is listed to output an insane maximum of 10V at 5A.

As for the charging speed, take a look at the graph below.

Obviously this is the fastest smartphone charger we have seen to date. It took 9 minutes to charge to 50% and a total of 17 minutes to reach 76% battery charge. In just a total of 32 minutes, the OPPO R17 Pro already reached 100% battery charge. Wow!

In comparison with a conventional 5V 2A charger, it took nearly 3 times longer to reach 100% charge compared to OPPO’s SuperVOOC charger.
