So it's the old first world problem. Buying a new phone soon and I quite like the look of what Oppo has to offer.

I like the N1 for the fact that it is unique I like the rear touch pad the button click through swivel camera and the Changes Mod variant. I always end up flashing CM anyway.

The 7a in the other hand is newer and more powerful which that lovely notification bar and fast charging but no word yet on a CM version but is still supported.

I want to know what you would choose and why? As to he'll me through this horrible crisis I have found myself in.

If you like CyanogenMod anyway, you could wait for the Oneplus One to be released.  Looks to be pretty similar to the Oppo Find 7.

I like the look and specs of the 7a. N1 is too, silly looking rotating camera, slower.

This isn't a horrible crisis, it's a reasonably trivial first world problem. "Both my children need heart transplants and I can only afford one" is a horrible crisis!

CM11s from the 1+1 is almost ported to the 7a, the state of stock rom for 7a and N1 is pretty abysmal. I'd overlook the N1 completely it's basically already abandoned by OPPO.

I like the N1 despite the fact it's missing lte but it really has been abandoned. I'm hoping for a N2 or a significant price drop

1+ is on my radar for the same reasons but the whole invite only has put me off and I would rather get an Oppo just for that slight more of an established company.

Does anyone know what Oppo phone has the most developers? I'm an entry level tinkerer so I can't quite cook from scratch.

Cheers for the replies team

7a is picking up the pace. The Find 5 is still quite active - but focus is definitely shifting to the 7a. Check out http://www.oppoforums.com/#oppo-find-7.110

Cheers for the link. Was quithe a good indication of developer activeness. Ifeel the N1 comes down in price I'll probably fold and hope for CM 12/13 support but if it is abandoned then I haven't dropped to much.
