OPPO R17 Pro #SeizeTheNight Hong Kong Getaway Photo Contest Mechanics

For many of us - including myself - the night represents a time of activity, productivity, and achievement.

I know many young creative people - like painters and musicians - who feel more inspired to create incredible works of art after the sun sets or even past midnight. As a nocturnal content creator who treats blogging or video creation for Youtube as an artform, I totally understand why they feel that urge to seize the night.

Of course, there are also the nurses or BPO employees who work on a graveyard shift - while the rest of the country sleeps - to contribute positively to society.

Clearly, so many wonderful things can happen when the stars are finally showing and I'm just glad that at least one tech company is finally giving 'night' the attention that it deserves. After all, we do need a gadget companion in the evening to allow us to accomplish more or simply to capture moments in great detail.


According to OPPO Mobile, "When night falls, everything changes. The night makes us daring and more care-free. We want to capture our most iconic moments and share them, yet most phone cameras can’t capture the night."

They added, "Perfect moments don’t stop to wait for perfect lighting. Equipped with smart aperture technology and Ultra Night mode, the OPPO R17 Pro is built for effortless nighttime performance, no matter how spontaneous your night may be."

Want proof? Well, here are some night shots taken using the OPPO R17 Pro. I think they are absolutely incredible considering that so many smartphones struggle to snap clear photos at night.

This image of a Ferris Wheel was taken in India.

I believe this is the Pont au Change Bridge in Paris, France.

And finally, this is the facade of the Bourbon Street Coyote Bar in P. Burgos, Makati City, Philippines.

With powerful low light imaging capabilities, the stellar OPPO R17 Pro brilliantly solves the challenges of night mobile photography through optimized hardware and software to deliver clear, crisp, and vibrant photos even at night. The unique technology used in this smartphone's Triple Camera System definitely enhances the quality of photos regardless of the lighting condition.

In line with the official unveiling of this new OPPO R-Series flagship handset, the global tech brand is launching its landmark "Seize the Night" campaign to celebrate the culture of urban youthfulness that is basking under the dazzling night lights and vibrant evening thrum of the metro.

Having an official suggested retail price of PHP 38,990, OPPO R17 Pro is the company's current high-end Android smartphone in the Philippines.

Design-wise, this powerful model features a beautiful gradient finish on its frosted glass back panel, which the company calls 'Radiant Mist'. For me, this unique look definitely makes this handset a real headturner.

As for technical specifications, this device sports a Triple Rear Camera Module with TOF 3D shooter and f/1.5 to f/2.4 Smart Aperture System, 25 MegaPixel AI Beauty Selfie Camera, 6.4-inch FullHD+ IPS Display with Waterdrop Notch, Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM Combo, In-Display Fingerprint Scanner, and the patented SuperVOOC Flash Charging Technology giving the handset more than 30% battery charge after just 10 minutes of being plugged to an electrical outlet.
