The Oppo RX17 Pro entered the European market this week and attracted some positive interest in last week’s poll. The Super VOOC charger has some people hooked, the minimal teardrop notch coupled with a in-display fingerprint reader also seems like a design win.
That said, it seems that Oppo may have missed the mark with the pricing – €600 is too much. Interestingly, water resistance came up as a con quite often, that’s something the OnePlus 6T doesn’t have either. But people also had reservations about Color OS. And you know what? Not one person commented “wow, a 3D ToF camera!”, so we put down the triple camera setup as another miss.
Still, the RX17 Pro model got a relatively warm reception. It will be interesting to see how its price changes after launch as this may become a more attractive option.
The Oppo RX17 Neo couldn’t gain any traction. One reader said that it will be a much more attractive phone if it ran Android One. The screen and fingerprint reader are certainly more upscale than what the Xiaomi Mi A2 offers, but the Mi phone is (at least) €100 cheaper. And with no Super VOOC, the RX17 Neo has only the in-display fingerprint reader to set it apart.
Again, things might start looking up once the cost falls down from the launch price, but until then the Neo doesn’t seem like a hot seller.
OnePlus announced its mid-cycle release: the OnePlus 6T in a New York event last month where the company announced that the OnePlus 6T was arriving to T-Mobile in the United States. We were also expecting to hear about a purple variant of the phone though there wasn’t a single mention of it at the event....
Our polls show that you love the motorized pop-up mechanism of the Oppo Find X, the smaller periscope of the vivo NEX S and the manual slider design of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. Now it’s time to pick your favorite. All three eliminate the need for a notch and bring other perks as well....
