Should you buy the Vivo V17 Pro? This is what we said in the full review of the smartphone:

"To get it right off the bat the V17 Pro is a good smartphone to consider if the camera is your key concern. It should also be considered if you want your smartphone to be innovative or have dual pop-up camera setup. Overall, I believe if you want a good camera in your smartphone and are not going to spend a penny more than Rs 30,000, then the V17 Pro is the one for you. If the camera can be compromised, there are other options available."
