Oppo N1 Review

The Oppo N1 is back in our full review. The N1 packs a giant 5.9-inch full 1080p display, 1.7GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. There are actually two different versions of this monster: One running Android 4.2.2 with Oppo's custom Color OS user interface and another version that runs CyanogenMod out of the box. 

The phone handles very similar to other phablet devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or HTC One max, but two big differences with the N1 are its build quality and battery life. The Oppo N1 is basically one solid chunk of aluminum and it feels like you could drop it from the Empire State Building, though I wouldn't because it could seriously hurt someone. The battery life is also outstanding. I've only charged this phone twice in my past four days of use. It's a seriously impressive device.

Another feature that Oppo has also included with the N1 is O-Touch, a small area on the back of the device that acts like a trackpad for the phone. It allows a user to swipe between pages, scroll through the web and activate the camera shutter without getting the N1's giant display full of smudges. To be honest, though, it doesn't feel totally finished.
