Which is a better buy between the OPPO R17 Pro and OnePlus 6T?
In terms of display, the DCI-P3 compliant OnePlus 6T supports wider color gamut for a better viewing experience. But when it comes to the design, OPPO R17 Pro easily stands out with its northern lights-like hue.
OnePlus is taking another big lead in software with Android 9.0 running on Oxygen OS with assured major software updates for the next two years. While OPPO is still stuck at Android 8.1 Oreo based on Color OS.
In exchange for software, OPPO is gunning for a unique triple camera setup. You have the usual 12 MP + 20 MP sensors along with a TOF 3D stereo camera which scans real-world objects then translate it into digital being. Whether you find it useful or not is up to you.
Spec-wise, it’s going all for the OnePlus 6T thanks to its flagship chipset. Although both can go up to 8GB RAM, OPPO R17 Pro gives you the option to expand via microSD card.
Probably the biggest deal-breaker — the Super VOOC charging of OPPO R17 Pro that leaves the fast charge of 6T to dust — its ability to go 0-100% in just 35 mins. Not to mention, getting to 40% in 10 mins.
Do take note that OnePlus 6T starts at Php31,990 for the 6GB/128GB variant and up to Php36,990 for the 8GB/256GB. It’s up to you whether or not that third camera and Super VOOC charging are worth the additional Php2,000.
