Oppo N1 review

 

Oppo takes on the phablet market, but can it live up to the bigger billing?

Great HDR camera ; Great battery life ; Clever gesture-based shortcuts

Pointless rear touch panel ; Poor front touch buttons ; Busy notifications area

Ratings in depth Smartphone newcomer Oppo arrived from nowhere to win the hearts of Android enthusiasts last year, with the Oppo Find 5 offering decent performance and selling for an impressive price. It was a good start for the previously unknown firm.

Oppo N1 review - Pocket-lint

 

-

Affordable, comfortable in hand, rotational camera with decent image quality, good battery life, 1080p screen quality and decent viewing angles, easy CyanogenMod install

It is huge and quite heavy, ill-responsive Android soft keys, positioning for call quality, not top-spec processor, no LTE not stock Android may put off some customers

Of all the phones we’ve handled we’ve never been approached by so many members of the public and fellow press to ask about what we're using. From restaurants, to casinos, to conferences - the Oppo N1 caught peoples’ eyes and stood out as the different,...

Oppo N1 hands-on: Big screen, big size and big ideas, but is it belittled by the competition? - Pocket-lint

 

Oppo might not be a name that you've heard much about in the UK. But as the Chinese brand's strength increases so too do its devices. At a launch event

Oppo N1 review

 

The best smartphone you've almost certainly never heard of

Genuinely useful rotating camera ; Customisation kicks a-plenty ; Gorgeous screen ; (Surprisingly) brilliant battery life

No 4G ; Non-expandable storage ; Heavy - even for a phablet

A humongous slab of hipster phone, this alterna-OS beauty breaks plenty of rules but is still bursting with appeal

Oppo N1 (16GB)

 

Quirky, flexible and excellent where it matters – best phablet you've never heard of

Sharp screen ; Strong camera ; Good battery life ; lively musical performance ; Flexible

No 4G ; No expandable storage ; SIM-free only

It’s a shame, because the N1 surprised us as one of the strongest performers in many areas.

Oppo N1

 

We've been following for some time the progress of the Oppo N1, the striking Android smartphone with a full HD screen and a twist, literally. It packs a rotating camera sensor at the top that can pull double duty at the front or back, or anywhere in...

We’re all for new competitors in the smartphone arms race, but they face an uphill challenge breaking in when the likes of Google and Motorola have gotten so, so good at offering flagship phones at low low prices. As such, it’s hard to justify the high...

Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition - Review

 

It's unfeasibly big, it's got a rotating camera, a rear touch panel, and it runs a custom ROM out of the box, but is the Oppo N1 CM Edition innovative or just a giant freak?

Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition - initial impressions

 

You want an initial impression of the Oppo N1 CM Edition? It's massive! Seriously, that's the first impression everyone has of it. Let's get over that for now, because size isn't everything. No really, it isn't.

If there’s anything in particular you’d like me to test, just leave a comment below this article.

Oppo N1 review: A fun alternative to your typical flagship droid - Tech2

 

The Oppo N1 is not your typical flagship Android and once you make your peace with it, it's brilliantly fun.

The N1 is not without its shortcomings however. The omission of a notification LED in the front is a big pain point and the 16GB is simply too little considering the actual usable space is a lot lesser. And then there’s the sheer size. The N1 isn’t the...
