Zopo ZP950 Phablet name change and pre-order

Zopo’s latest monster phone, the 5.7-inch ZP950 goes on pre-order in China, and get’s a name change of international markets.

Zopo shocked and upset a few people with their new ZP950 5.7-inch phone. Some people were disappointed by lack of quad-core CPU (although the ZP800 quad-core is on the way) while other complained the phone/tablet is just to big, then there are those of you who dislike the ‘phablet’ marketing label.

If the above describes you then you will not enjoy this post (but you might like this one) as Zopo are currently offering the dual-core MT6577 ZP950 for pre-order across China, with shipping dates scheduled for after 21st December.

    Had received the phone on the 26th Dec, am pleased with the built quality and the large screen;
    But currently there are some bugs , hope they will resolve with firmware upgrades.
    1) The CPU is always running at 100% when charging, thus charging is very slow. To make it charge faster, I’ve to turn off my phone.
    2) The Autobrightness is not working, it always stays at the dim side, I did some test with androsensors app. It is constantly reporting from 10 lux uder no light to 280 lux under bright sunlight. This could be a calibration issue
