While most Filipino consumers think that Night Photography using a smartphone is dominated by another brand other than OPPO, our recent shots in a posh location in BGC proves otherwise. Using our OPPO R17 Pro, the shots we took gave us an impression that even a phone that’s not as pricier as the Mate20 and Mate20 Pro series can definitely take night photography to a whole new level.

Debuted first in the Philippines last November 7, the OPPO R17 Pro is the latest smartphone in the R-series that is made available to Filipinos. One of its major features is the ability to take low light and night shots using its rear camera with an impressive set of specifications (12MP f/1.5, f/2.4 + 20MP f/2.6 + TOF 3D Stereo).

You can check out our first impressions on this link.
