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


For a newbie to break into the inner sanctum that makes the high-end smartphone segment, is similar to a kid trying to adjust to a new school, mid-term. There's going to be name calling, he will get picked on by just about anyone and he can forget...

The Oppo N1 will cost you Rs 39,990, which is a lot for a brand that’s yet to establish themselves amongst other seasoned players. Even with all the right ingredients like a healthy spec sheet, good performance and a dependable build quality, it’s...

Oppo N1 review: a cameraphone that puts selfies first


If our articles have been tagged properly, the first mention of Oppo on Engadget dates back to August 2005. No one would have thought that this

Swivel camera adds versatility ; Officially supported on two ROMs ; Great battery life

Camera shutter speed isn't fast enough ; HDR mode is buggy ; Back-mounted trackpad is awkwardly placed

The Oppo N1 is a bold, yet fun phone with the noble goal of solving the selfie problem. Unfortunately, its camera is still a few updates away from perfection.

Oppo N1 review: CyanogenMod goes legit


If you've ever owned an Android phone and have even lightly explored the world of custom ROMs and modifications, chances are you've seen the name CyanogenMod. It is the most popular variant of Android available through the modding community, and it's...

Great build quality ; Speedy performance ; Great battery life

Washed out display ; No LTE ; Disappointing camera

Out of the hacker forums and into the real world

Oppo N1 CyanogenMod edition review: Pure mind


Trying out new things is in Oppo's DNA. The Find 5 was a clue, the N1 is the hard evidence, that the up and coming Chinese maker will never miss an opportunity to surprise and try to amaze. You know who else has a different perspective on things?...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; penta-band 3G with HSPA ; 5.9" 16M-color 1080p Super IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 373ppi ; Android OS v4.3 Jelly Bean with CyanogenMod 10.2; Android 4.4 KitKat is on its way with a CyanogenMod 11 update ;...

Non expandable storage ; No LTE ; Non user-replaceable battery ; Hefty and big device, near impossible to operate single-handedly ; Snapdragon 600 is no longer flagship-grade

Well, that was a pleasant surprise. Who would've ever imagined Cyanogen taking it to the next level and finding a vessel of the Oppo N1's magnitude?

Oppo N1


This review originally published November 20, 2013, on CNET's sister site CNET Asia. For full-resolution images, see the original review .

Its matte finish gives the Oppo N1 a more premium feel than its plastic chassis would suggest. The phone also has a great camera and strong battery life, and the swiveling camera is an innovative touch.

The N1 lacks a microSD card slot, is heavy, and has no LTE. Some will find its dimensions awkwardly large.

With its swiveling camera mount and high tech specs, the Oppo N1 is easily today's most innovative smartphone that most people haven't heard of.

Oppo N1 review: Head spin


Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; penta-band 3G with HSPA, 5.9" 16M-color 1080p Super IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 373ppi, Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Color OS; There is a limited edition with CyanogenMod, Quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300 CPU, 2...

Non expandable storage, No LTE, Non user-replaceable battery, Hefty and big device, near impossible to operate single-handedly, Snapdragon 600 is no longer flagship-grade

The phablet space has certainly gone a long way in the past three years. From a virtually empty niche to one of the most hotly-contested segments of the market. The once mocked Samsung Galaxy Note lineup is now receiving the highest form of flattery,...

Oppo N1 Review


The second most profitable smartphone vendor in China, Oppo, is growing leaps and bounds this year, and when you look at its 2013 crop of handsets, that's for a good reason. After the first phone with 13 MP camera and second with Full HD display, Oppo...

The 3600 mAh unit delivers impressive battery life ; 13 MP swivel-mounted rear shooter can be used as a front-facing cam

Subpar picture quality compared to other camera-centric phones ; Weak earpiece

If you are eyeing a 6-incher like the Oppo N1, you are probably aware how uncomfortable to operate with one hand or even carry around such a phone would be. That being said, it is a very well-made device, with solid build, good looks, and flagship specs.

Oppo N1 Mini review


If you loved everything about the Oppo N1, but only wished that it was smaller, you should definitely take a look at this Oppo N1 Mini review!

Solid build quality ; Great camera ; Vivid display ; Acceptable battery life ; Good performance

Outdated version of Android ; Steep price point

The Oppo N1 Mini is currently available for $529.99 from Amazon, which is definitely steep given its mid-range nature, and the fact that there are some high-end smartphones out there in the same price range, if not cheaper. If you are considering...

Oppo N1 Review: Future-Looking Phablet Or Oversized Flop?


Oppo's N1 sports a unique pivoting camera, a large-format display, and two different operating system options. Are those features enough to make up for an older hardware platform and dicey software optimization in a sea of compelling competition?

The Oppo N1: CyanogenMod Edition


New phones are being released all the time, and though I love tweaking and updating my Android phone, I really don't need a new one all the time. But buying a new phone is rarely about need… it's about want, and the Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition Android...
