I agree. Colors are indeed very vivid but dynamic range is really bad. Pictures are still good but not as good as the Lumia 1020 offers and to me this rotating camera seems like a gimmick. Why can't Oppo just fit a decent camera in the front? Suppose if someone is video calling you, it would take a little bit time for the camera to rotate or this type of things easily gets break.
Persian USer, 24 Sep 2013Sorry to say that but it can't compete with mighty Z1 and 1020.Hard to say if the camera on Nokia Lumia 1020 is better than the one on Oppo N1:
Oppo N1 has higher pixel density and the resolution is significantly higher. Nokia Lumia 1020 has brand lens, manual focus, manual exposure, and manual shutter speed, but if you don´t care that much about manual settings when taking photos with your smartphone, then these features are not that important...
info got out from picture flowers : equipment oppo , camera N1 , focal 5mm, F-number F/2 , exposure 1/130 sec. , ISO 50 , made 17 sep. 13.

It's not very likely to hit the ground top first. More often than not a phone falls edge, side or front/back first. Very rarely straight on top or bottom. It has to do with how it's normally held.
Even so, as the camera is a moving part, it would cause less damage to be absorbed.
itchybutt, 24 Sep 2013pureview has even more horrible noise at max resolution. That's 1020 does not take best images in full resolution,there is 5mp mode for that.....
SergioMarques255, 24 Sep 2013Horrible ! Noiseable and grainy.you probably need a new monitor or something..the pictures are pretty darn amazing

Wow.. the quality of images is amazing.. Very clear & detailed.. very little grains that too on full zoom.. Great one OPPO
SergioMarques255, 24 Sep 2013Horrible ! Noiseable and grainy.i really cannot see any grainy parts its camera just as good if not better than other android flagships....you must be zooming in way too much
If you accidentally drop this phone, it would be a nightmare. The rotatable camera would receive the worst damage.
Cool with this phone u dont need a tripod for group shot/ long exposures.. Just twist the camera upwards and lay it flat then use the remote.. I always wished for a diffuser in my n808 xenon flash because in close up the flash will blow the exposure away.. Good thing the 808 has the ND filter to counter though.. Don't know how with the 1020
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2013very good oppo.innovated idea of new camera design apple,samsung,nokia should follow oppo.Innovate ? are you new to phones ? when touch phones didnt exist, lots of phones had flip camera..
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2013very good oppo.innovated idea of new camera design apple,samsung,nokia should follow oppo.No shit Sherlock... innovated ? remember all the old phones with flipping camera ? ... how old are you,, 10 ?
its pretty ugly with that camera sticking out the top,and if you make a white phone dont make part of the front black that adds to the awful look of this phone...
