The Oppo N3, which is the second generation of the N1 has been shrunken down significantly compared to its predecessor. That’s at the cost of a slightly smaller display of 5.5-inch, compared to 5.9-inch on the N1. The N3 is shorter, narrower, and about 20 grams lighter than the first-gen, albeit a millimeter thicker.
A lustrous steel frame design around the device while the swiveling camera features a design touch – faux leather and faux stitching, just like on the white Note 3 from last year. On the back, the marquee feature is the touch-based fingerprint scanner, which is surrounded by a metallic frame.
Unlike the Galaxy S5 and Note 4 which you need to slide over the sensor to unlock the phone, you can just skip the lockscreen with a simple touch on the fingerprint scanner.
At the bottom, the unique Skyline notification light has been made visible from both sides of the phone, so you won’t miss any notifications even when the phone is lying on its screen.
The Oppo N3 also comes with its own O-Click remote, which has the functionality to control music playback and the swiveling camera. From finding your phone, to snapping a shot and changing tunes from a distance.
