Oppo N3 review

 

Swivelling camera tricks and more

That spinny camera ; Quality IPS screen ; Dual SIM and microSD ; Novel O-Click accessory

Ridiculous port positioning ; Dodgy auto-brightness ; Color OS is a marmite affair ; Slightly outdated internals

Ratings in depth A few short months ago, Oppo was barely a blip on the international radar. After moving beyond the bounds of Blu-Ray players, it first garnered international attention with the Find 5 superphone. At the time it was the first smartphone...

Oppo N3 review

 

Heavy, chunky and quirky, Oppo has a different take on what a flagship phone should be

Great camera ; Decent processor ; Feature-packed

Chunky and heavy ; Marmite looks ; A bit glitchy

It’s a chunky blighter, but the Oppo N3 offers some features the techier gadgeteer will love

Oppo N3

 

The phone with 16-megapixel selfies

Great camera ; Lots of interface customisation ; Tons of hardware extras ; Decent fingerprint scanner

Big and chunky ; Slightly glitchy software

One other neat little Oppo N3 special is the LED notification light that sits under the curved rear part of the steel frame, which glows when you have any messages, emails and so on. It sits down there because the top of the phone is really owned by...

Oppo N3 hands-on review

 

We wrap our hands around Oppo's motorised camera-toting phablet

Oppo N3 ( white)

 

Novelties usually come with drawbacks, however. The camera module is separate from the chassis, making for a thicker phone, and unlike the slim and lightweight devices you see from its competitors, Oppo's N3 feels thick and heavy.

The Oppo N3's motorized swivel camera takes automatic panoramic shots and top quality selfies -- without having to flip the phone around.

The phone feels heavy, and you have to be careful when putting it in your pocket to avoid accidentally damaging the camera's swivel. That leather looks horrible, and 4G LTE support varies by country.

The N3 is definitely an upgrade to the N1, but its unadventurous body means you'll really only want this for the innovative camera.

Oppo N3 review: Twist again: Oppo improves on its swivel camera phone

 

Let's be honest, most smartphones have very similar features -- a longish rectangular body, powerful chips and a camera on the front and back, albeit with different megapixel counts. Oppo went out on a limb last year with the N1 , whose camera was...

Oppo N3 review: Motor head

 

The formula for the smartphone to top all others is the industry's elusive philosopher stone. Being complete newbies, but keen as a bean, Oppo's take is perhaps the weirdest. Yet it seems to work.

Optional Dual-SIM (micro SIM resides in microSD card slot) ; 5.5" IPS LCD display of 1080 x 1920px resolution, around 403ppi ; Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Color OS 2.0 on top ; Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, quad-core 2.2GHz Krait 400 processor, Adreno...

No 4K video recording yet ; Comparably large and heavy for the screen size ; QHD resolution would have been nice ; No FM radio or IR blaster (we're nitpicking because of the high asking price) ; Hard to get in brick-and-mortar stores outside of Asia

It's clear the Oppo N3 is more than just a robust cameraphone with a quirky motorized lens - it's Oppo's current flagship. The Oppo Find 7 may have something to say about that with its 5.5" QHD display, 3GB of RAM and stereo speakers but it can't...

Oppo N3 (Unlocked)

 

Unabashedly unorthodox, the powerful Oppo N3 will turn heads with its rotating camera and unique design, although there are better deals for unlocked Android smartphones.

Long battery life. Unique rotating camera. Sharp 5.5-inch LCD. Reliable fingerprint scanner

Awkward port placement. Heavily skinned Android

Undeniably inventive, but needlessly innovative. Such is the state of smartphone design progress these days, embodied by devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. Oppo doesn't dabble in curved displays for its first major U.S. release, but with a...

Oppo N3 and R5 hands-on: First look

 

Oppo's Singapore event is now under way and we were off to a great show - the star of the show took the stage just minutes after the start. The successor to the Oppo N1 is called Oppo N3 and retains the rotating camera module on the top, while adding a...
