Here’s an interesting comparison between three of the most popular smartphones: Oppo N1, Xiaomi Mi4 and Iphone 5c, each device having its own advantages and disadvantages. We’ll list all their features and specs and you’ll decide later which phone winks at you.
The Oppo N1 is an innovative smartphone with a touch-sensitive area on the back panel and a camera of 13MP which can rotate 206 degrees, being the first device that can take the most perfect selfies. Below the camera, there’s the 5.9inches IPS LCD display which will amaze you for sure, especially because it supports a high resolution of 1080x1920pixels and 373ppi. The phone weights 213grams and measures 170.7×82.6x9mm and under the shell you’ll find a Li-Ion 3610mAh battery which will keep you occupied for a long time. The Oppo N1 is powered by a Krait 300 processor with four cores, clocked at 1.7GHz, based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset and uses an Adreno 320 GPU. The internal storage is available in two variants of 16 and 32GB, but the phone doesn’t support micro SD card slot for expansion. The operating system is Android v4.2 (Jelly Bean) with Color OS on top of it, and it is helped a lot by the 2GB of RAM. Returning to the camera, we must specify that is has dual-LED flash, autofocus, HDR, face detection, touch focus, geo tagging and it can record videos at 1080p@30fps. The pricing is kind of frustrating, because the 16GB variant of this phone costs 700 dollars on amazon.com
This phone is shorter than the Oppo N1, featuring a display of 5inches (IPS LCD) with the same resolution, but the pixel density is higher at 441ppi. The phone measures 139.2×68.5×8.9mm, weights 149grams and has a non removable battery of 3080 mAh which resists 280hours on stand by mode. Under the battery sits the quad core 2.5GHz Krait 400 processor which is baked by the Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 chipset, and the Adreno 330 GPU takes care of the graphics. The phone hosts two variants of internal storage of 16 and 64GB, but the memories aren’t expandable. The Mi4 operates on Android v4.4.3 (KitKat) with MIUI 5.0 interface, and has 3GB of RAM.
The back camera is 13MP with autofocus, dual-LED flash, 1/3” sensor size and 1.12µm pixel size, HDR etc., and the front camera is 8MP. The 16GB variant of this phone costs 440 dollars and can be purchased from xiaomishop.com.
This is the only model from the iPhone family with a plastic shell, but the phone weights more than its predecessor (132grams vs 112grams). Its dimensions are 124.4×59.2x9mm, although the display’s size was kept at 4inches, using the same LED-backlit IPS LCD technology. The resolution is unchanged at 640x1136pixels and the pixel density is 326ppi. The phone is powered by a Swift (ARM v7-based) processor with two cores, clocked at 1.3GHz, based on an Apple A6 chipset and uses a PowerVR SGX 543MP3 GPU (triple-core graphics). You can choose one of the three variants of internal memories of 8/16/32 GB, but the bad news is that you can’t expand the storage. The phone runs initially on iOS 7, being upgraded to iOS 7.1.2 and it supports iOS 8 as well. The Ram capacity is 1GB (DDR2). The back camera is 8MP, with autofocus, LED flash, 1/3.2” sensor size and 1.4 µm pixel size, HDR, panorama, simultaneous HD video and image recording at 1080p@30fps etc. For video calls, you can use the 1.2MP front shooter. The battery is non-removable, with a small capacity of 1440mAh. The 16GB variant of this phone costs 494 dollars.
The Oppo N1 is cool because it has the camera with rotating lens and a giant battery, but the Mi4 has a faster processor and a smaller price.
