To quote Marco: "Got this great image from a recent trail run that I tracked with Endomondo on my N1. The phone fits in my jacket pocket, the GPS accuracy is very good and the fix was instantaneous"
Reggie lives in the hub of the finance world, New York City, where he works as a financial analyst. He is particularly interested in the future of the smartphone industry and companies, like OPPO, coming out of Asia. He hopes the unique features of the N1 will catch the eye of some people in his business and prove that there are big things coming out of the Far East!
Though born and raised in Miami, Kevin currently lives on the campus of his university, The University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. An avid sports fan and photographer for his university’s newspaper, he gets to combine those two interests by photographing the Division 1 matches at his school. When he gets the N1, he’s hoping to put his DSLR away and rely on the rotating camera when he’s out shooting.
Marques is familiar to many through his Youtube Channel, MKBHD, but when he’s not making review videos, he’s a full time student in Hoboken, New Jersey. Living in Hoboken, he has great proximity to New York City and its skyline, which he uses to his full advantage when he’s testing out the cameras of his latest devices.

The only Brit among the group, Mike will be using his N1 to show us a taste of his life in Lancashire, England. Though Lancashire’s a small town, he lives right on the coast and just an hour from both big cities and the mountains. There, he works in design during the day, plays in a band, and fiddles around with the customizations of his Android.
Robert is currently living with his wife and son in New York State, just a short drive from New York City on one side and the Adirondack Mountains on the other. Though the Adirondacks are a far cry from the mountains of Alaska he’s used to, he still plans to beat up the N1 hardware as much as he can by taking it into the deep winter wilderness.
Marco Tarabini lives in beautiful Mandello, Italy, a town situated right on Lake Como which he describes as heaven for outdoor lovers. There, he works as a researcher in the field of mechanical and thermal measurements. He plans to incorporate the N1 into his research by trying to create a vision based portable measurement system.
