Oppo N1 review: a cameraphone that puts selfies first


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.

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

We have to hand it to Oppo for making such a bold move to solve an increasingly common problem. While most other manufacturers have stuck with the form factor they're comfortable with, Oppo's taken the extra effort to craft a high-end swivel camera,...

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 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 hands-on: First look


Oppo is slowly starting to make a name for itself in the West with its high-end phones, and the company is now more ambitious than ever – today's Oppo N1 promises an impressive camera that takes on the likes of the Xperia Z1 and Lumia 1020. With the...

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...

Great build quality ; Speedy performance ; Great battery life

Washed out display ; No LTE ; Disappointing camera

The N1 is an important step for CyanogenMod, but not yet a mainstream device

Oppo N1 review: Real camera innovation in a swivel


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 Preview


Oppo has released the N1, the world's first Android smartphone with a "rotating camera." What is a rotating camera, you ask? Great question. Where most smartphones have a dual camera setup -- a primary rear camera and a secondary front-facing camera...

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 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?

Industrial Design, Build Quality, OS Choice, O-Click, Battery Life

No LTE, O-Touch, Performance, Poor Speaker Placement, Lackluster Audio Quality, Size

The Oppo N1 is a unique phablet chock full of hit-or-miss gimmicks. Overall, the lack of LTE, extra heft, previous-gen SoC, and relatively high price tag make this handset a questionable purchase.
