Oppo N1 March 18, 2016
The Chinese manufacturer, Oppo, is the frontrunner when it comes to new mobile phone technologies. When they first entered the mobile phone market, they’ve created a good mobile phone that has a very interesting feature: a swivelling camera.
Since then, people are eager to know what the company is going to create in the future. Oppo, like other mobile phone manufacturers, has created a line of different mobile phones that cater to different consumers; from midrange to flagship models.
The Oppo N1 is one of their best flagship mobile phones. It comes with a 180-degree swivelling camera. If that is not enough to impress you, I don’t know what will. It is very interesting because you can use this swivelling camera to use for selfies or for taking pictures by swivelling the camera to the back.
The Oppo N1 is a little bit on the larger side. The phone has dimensions of 170.7×82.6x9mm and it also weighs at 213g. The display of the phone is a 5.9-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080×1920 and a pixel density of 373ppi.
Obviously, the Oppo N1 is already in the phablet category, which means that you cannot operate this mobile phone without using two hands. Still, I think it is a fair compromise based on the features of this phone.
The Oppo N1 has some pretty interesting key features. Apart from the swivelling camera, this mobile phone also has a “gesture panel”. Basically, this is a panel where you can put apps in it and assign different gestures to launch that specific application.
For example, if you want to launch Twitter, you may draw up a T using the touchscreen and the app will fire up immediately afterwards. This is pretty convenient for people who do not want to populate their home screens with a lot of apps.
Another key feature of the Oppo N1 is that it comes with the Cyanogenmod. For those of you who do not know, Cyanogenmod is actually a custom firmware and a famous one at that. Oppo is the first mobile phone company to support it officially in their phones, which is pretty amazing considering the firmware’s track record.
The camera of the Oppo N1 is one of its main features. The camera is mounted on a swivelling platform that allows you to swivel it either to the front or back depending on your usage needs. The camera app is as simple as it gets but the actual camera itself is a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization.
The camera is rather impressive and post processing is good, albeit does lack some features. Still, I am quite impressed with the quality of the images taken using the camera. Whether it is a selfie or a mountain, everything looks crisp.
The Oppo N1 also comes with 4G LTE connectivity. For uninterrupted service, you may want to get a mobile phone signal booster.
The Oppo N1 is really impressive. With its swivelling camera, a 5.9-inch IPS screen, a hefty 3,610 MaH battery, and 4G LTE connectivity, the Oppo N1 is a really good phone.
