Main disadvantages

  • No 4K video recording yet
  • Comparably large and heavy for the screen size
  • QHD resolution would have been nice
  • No FM radio or IR blaster (we’re nitpicking because of the high asking price)
  • Hard to get in brick-and-mortar stores outside of Asia

 

The Oppo N3 is a great smartphone with a quirky but potent-looking camera propped on its forehead. As a successor, it’s all an Oppo N1 user can ask for – the screen is smaller but it suits the device better, the chipset has seen a big improvement, and the camera (the focal point of the package) has improved the most.
