The behemoth Oppo N1 gets a size-comparison with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The Oppo N1 has a lot of things going for it: a beautiful, well-built exterior, a snappy processor and a rotating camera the like of which we haven't seen in a long while. But it's downright giant, even for it's 5.9-inch 1080p display.



In fact, it's so big that despite us having the actual measurements of the phone (170.7x82.6x9mm) from day one, we still didn't quite imagine exactly how the phone looks in real life. Thankfully, the ever-resourceful folks from Chinese MyDrivers have provided a visual comparison with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (151.2x79.2x8.3mm), a device that we, naturally, consider to be in the same league. In hindsight, we couldn't be more wrong – the Oppo N1 is gigantic, and is definitely edging on the size of devices like the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, more so than anything else.



What's even worse, the Oppo N1, at 213 grams, is a fair bit heavier than most any other device, the Galaxy Note 3 included (168g). But as the saying goes, a single picture is worth a thousand word, so without any further ado we present you the Galaxy Note 3-dwarfing Oppo N1.

No I don't want a phone with a giant bezel if it doesn't have to have one, neither do most people. It is almost 2014, this is not 2008 anymore. This was the rumored Oppo N1 design http://i.imgur.com/uQN9oS3.jpg but it looks like the rumor was completely wrong.

So, you want tablets with bezels but smartphones, almost as big as tablets, without bezels?? Is that it? Why? O.o

Tablets need bezel, phones do not need that much.

Really? Is that a serious question? We want bezels on tablets that are REASONABLY sized because it makes them easier to handle. We want tiny bezels on phones because we stuff them into our pockets - size matters there.

First of all, if that device pictured in that rumored photo were to be real, there would have to be some kind of technology to recognize when you were holding the device because you would most likely be touching the edge of the screen every time you held the device. Secondly, it is a simple design language, especially common in Asian culture, to have balance in your creation. In this case, because they wanted the camera to flip over it added that large bezel at the top which they had to carry over to the bottom in order to balance it out. This design language can also be seen in Sony devices as well as other Asian phone manufacturers.

It's really bigger than Note III. So basically Oppo N1 is a phablet. I was expecting it in a smaller size.

Oh, i like the look of small bezels too. But what's the point when you're putting on some ugly case to protect it?? I like em naked!!

The rotating camera is a great idea.

I think it's funny how we group all phones 5.5"+ together in the same category. Sure they're all Phablets but look at the second image. The 5.9" screen looks so much larger than the 5.7" Note 3 screen. But then again just like how the 5.9" HTC One max equally dwarfs the Note 3 in shear body dimensions there is a lot to do with bezel control when it comes to Phablet design. I love my HTC One and was sold on the One max however at this point I'm going to go Note 3 due to availability, I've decided to make the move to ATT instead of Verizon then low and behold they're one of the carriers not getting the One max... Gotta love that.... Maybe I can find a good deal on an unlocked One max to use on ATT.

The rotating camera is an awesome idea. It'll be nice if they release a smaller version of the phone in the future.
