The unibody construction of the gadget makes it extremely compact to hold and behold the full HD IPS 5.9 inch screen. The display effectively met the quality standards in terms of viewing angles, resolution, color reproduction, and brightness. The smart design integrates the volume rocker key and the power/lock key on the right side edge of the phone. The left edge is clean.

The smartphone industry expected Oppo to launch the N1 with pre-installed CynogenMod. However, the product for the Indian market has Android jelly Bean 4.2 with a custom ColorOS UI on top. The user interface interprets commands from gestures, and it should take some time to familiarize with the protocol. The matte texture at the phone back embeds another unique feature. Essentially, Oppo incorporates a 12 cm2 touch panel at the centre of the back surface. Nicknamed as O-touch, this back panel simplifies single-handed usage of the phone. Users can take photos or scroll the phone options using the panel.

The O-click is yet another unique feature introduced in the Indian smartphone market. The company explained that this brand new distant control feature allows users to operate the phone from a distance of 15 metres. One can conveniently attach the O-click with his/her keychains, and pair it with the Bluetooth of N1. The remote picture control facility is also helpful in locating your phone when it is within the reception range. The phone operates on a 1.7 GHz processor and embeds 16 GB default storage capacity.
