Unlocked OPPO N1 available today in U.S. and Europe
The OPPO N1 is the latest flagship Android powered handset from the China based manufacturer, and is available for purchase today in the U.S. and Europe directly from OPPO. Offering a rear touch panel and a 13MP camera that can rotate 206 degrees, the handset is priced at $599 for the 16GB model and $649 for the 32GB variant. Hopefully, you like white, because that is the only color available.

The OPPO N1 is equipped with a 5.9 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920, and includes a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor under the hood. 2GB of RAM is on board along with 16GB or 32GB of native storage. A 3610mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.

When OPPO first teased us about the phone, it focused on the ability to use the device with one hand, despite its phablet-like size. That is due to the rear touch panel on the N1. Additionally, the 13MP camera uses an "Owl" image chip which is supposed to make pictures look great even if taken under low-light conditions.

Keep in mind that the phone does not offer 4G LTE connectivity, although it can provide 4G speeds using an HSPA+ network from AT&T or T-Mobile.

Interesting phone but it comes with questionable reliability and poor support.

Reliability might be questionable but picture this: oppo is expanding to europe and usa now and if they dont do it right they might lose reputation which they dont have so they have to be carefull. So thats why i think reliability should be good and when it comes to support. Cyanogenmod is the 2nd best supoort after google and considered that cyanogenmod still supports galaxy s1, which is like 3 years, we can take it as they are the best support there is right now

Depends on which carrier you're on and where you live. I have two lines one with AT&T and one with T Mobile, T-Mobiles 42 Mbps HSPA+ network returns speeds that are faster than AT&Ts and Verizons LTE here in Seattle. No doubt because T-Mobile doesn't have as many customers causing high traffic on their network. The only place that T-Mobiles 42 Mbps HSPA+ falls short is the Time to First Byte. Even though Ping comes out very similar in Speedtests the routine of: click a link, web browser opens, and then you have to wait for the network to send is data; takes a little longer on the 42 Mbps network. Not much longer than LTE, but LTEs Time to First Byte is so fast that it seems like I'm on WiFi all the time. Let's put it this way T-Mobiles HSPA+ network is fast enough that I voluntarily bought a16GB Moto G which has a 21 Mbps radio which I'll be using daily. I've owned T-Mobile LTE phones and 42 Mbps phones honestly when a 21 Mbps phone returns 12 Mbps Speedtests I'm perfectly happy with that.

I really considered this phone for a while but then the Nexus 5 came out :( Can't wait to see what the Find 7 will have to offer though.

Nexus is stupid for me, just because of that battery and small display

OK, I'm very familiar with screen sizes. I own a 5.7" Note 3 right now, and I've owned the 5.5" Note 2, 4.7" HTC One, and the 7.0" Asus Fonepad. Not to mention a long list of phones with smaller screens. The iPhone at 4.0" is small, the Moto G at 4.5" is going to the smaller side but is totally usable still. The Nexus 5 at 5.0" isn't small. Maybe your hands are super sized but to call a 5.0" phone stupid for having a small display I think you're just trolling or you could possibly be the first Oppo fanboy I've ever seen.

You know I really wanted to like this phone but Google, Motorola and BLU have changed my expectations on what phone bang for the buck is. So I can spend $600 on a 16GB Oppo N1: or $350 on a 16GB Nexus 5, $200 for a 16GB Moto G, or $265 for a 16GB BLU Life View which has a 5.7" 720p display. When I can get two phones for approximately the same money as the Oppo N1, I'd actually lean towards the two phones. I could have a Nexus 5 AND a BLU Life View for $615? Heck yeah. I'd spend the extra $15. Or I could get a Moto G and a BLU Life View for $465 and have $135 in my pocket? The single jumbo phone doesn't sound that interesting anymore.

true, but the Oppo has the better camera without a doubt. Specs with that otherwise wont be better than the Nexus, but I guess if someone wants a nice camera, (especially for selfies and bloggers since that camera will be a lot better than the meager front cameras most phones have) the Oppo is one to consider.
