Oppo N1 official camera samples emerge - read the full textOppo turned a few heads today at its unveiling in China of the new Oppo N1, where it introduced a 13MP camera capable of rotating 206-degrees from front to back. This means that your front-facing images should theoretically be just as good as your rear-facing ones - it is one and the same camera...

If the N1 delivers similar results in a real test, then Z1 is KO. 1020 yes it will be a good fight provided these shots are real.

When there's a moving parts that involves a ribbon or may not last that long.

Sorry to say that but it can't compete with mighty Z1 and 1020.

My N8 can clip highlights on a sunny day too, but when I saw how the Galaxy S4 clips them I stopped worrying and took better care of what and how I'm shooting. And if it happens, it happens, as long as I caught the moment I wanted. Better than no photo at all. :-)

"the dynamic range could use some work - particularly in the flower images, where some highlights and more than a few shadows are clipped."

What are you talking about? DR looks just like any other 13MP smartphone camera. Those dark areas just look to be very dark to begin with. And white areas are often clipped even if there's no direct sunlight. That's the way it is with those small pixels.

808 Pureview clips highlights, Lumia 1020 clips highlights, I think it's ok if this one also clips highlights(without HDR mode)...

Pretty good, at least I don't see signs of over-sharpening.
