Oppo N1 Review in pictures
Fab phablet, intelligent innovations • The first smartphone to boast a swivel camera, which doubles up as the main shooter and front cam for video calls • Innovative touch panel at the rear • Comes with O-Click, a tiny Bluetooth device that enables phone finder functions and also works as a remote shutter release
Premium is its middle name • It’s big, really big • Looks gorgeous in matte white • Feels solid in the hand • The standout design is sure to make heads turn when you fish it out of your pocket (provided you can get it inside in the first place)
Large display • The full HD 5.9-inch IPS screen offers a pixel density of 373ppi • Great viewing angles but sunlight legibility isn’t its strong point • Very crisp and produces natural colours • Contrast and brightness levels are very good
Great selfies, decent cam • 13-meg selfies, here we come! • Camera app is fairly basic, but covers all the main features, including HDR, burst mode and panorama • Image and video quality is very pleasing, especially in daylight • Can throw up inconsistent results on occasion, mainly with respect to colour saturation
Softer side of things hit hard • Custom skin called ColorOS running atop Android 4.2.2 • Tons of customisation options, including themes • Support for gestures, including a drop-down gesture panel which you can use to launch apps, open the camera, play music, call or text contacts or launch a website • Supports double-tap-to- wake
Really a lot packed in there • The camera and flashlight can even be turned on using gestures when the screen is off • The rear touch panel, called O-Touch, can be used to launch an app, scroll pages and lists, launch the shooter, click pictures, start audio recording and control music
…but there are a few quirks too • Supports USB OTG, but no way to eject flash drives safely • O-Touch can be triggered inadvertently • Sometimes broadcasts blank audio messages on WhatsApp groups when you try to type
Fast is its last name • Quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip running at 1.7GHz and 2GB of RAM keep proceedings smooth • Loaded with connectivity options, including NFC
Battery life is long, really long • Sealed 3,610mAh battery keeps the Oppo N1 going for more than a day even with heavy usage • You may only need to hunt for a power socket after a couple of days if your usage is light
At a glance • 6.9-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 screen • 13MP swivel camera • 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor • Adreno 320 GPU • 2GB RAM, 16/32GB internal storage • 3,610mAh battery • Dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, DLNA, USB OTG, NFC
- • Massive size • Non-expandable storage • Camera can be inconsistent on occasion Pros and cons + • Good screen • Fast performance • Sturdy build and standout design • Tons of innovations and party tricks • Gesture support and plethora of custom shortcuts
Rs 39,999 (16GB) Pricing and verdict “The Oppo N1 stands out as a unique and innovative phablet that packs in a lot. The swivel camera, O-Touch functionality, gesture support and the O-Click accessory are the main highlights, adding to a well-performing device with long battery life. Despite all this however, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 trumps it as a well-rounded option at a similar price.”
