What a great day! The sun is shining and a new phone shaped package containing a quad-core Hero H7500+, has just arrived on my desk.
Hero are the lesser known sibling to Chinese phone maker Zopo. As such many of Hero’s devices share similar hardware to Zopo models, which cost significantly more! The model which has just arrived with us for review is the Hero H7500+, a 5-inch HD Android phone with quad-core MT6589 processor.
The phone literally just arrived so I can only give you a very brief first impression of the glossy white 5-inch phone. Firstly I was happily surprised to find the H7500+ came complete with a protective case and 2 x 2800mAh batteries Also in the box is a charger, data cable, headphones and screen protector.
As for the phone, it’s not the lightest or thinnest device in the world, but this helps to give a reassuringly solid feel. The white front and glossy removable rear are separated my a steel band which wraps around the phone and will give some protection from knocks and scrapes.
Gizchina News of the week
As mentioned above the display is a 5-inch HD panel, but with a resolution of 720p rather than 1080p. Honestly though this doesn’t detract from the phone as colours and crisp and clear, webpages look great as do images.
Driving the 1280 x 720 display is a quad-core Mediatek MT6589 1.2Ghz processor with 1GB RAM. One of the first things I did when unboxing the phone was to install Antutu to confirm the details are correct and see how the Hero H7500+ performs. A score of 12,745 is a surprising result!
I’ve also given 8 mega-pixel rear camera a quick go too. The auto focus is fast and capturing and storing images is snappy.
The rest of the hardware includes a 2 mega-pixel front camera, 4GB of built-in memory, SD card reader, dual-sim, network support for GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz, WCDMA 850/2100MHz and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
I’ll continue to test the Hero H7500+ during this week and will post a full in-depth review soon.
For those of you interested we received our Hero H7500+ from Kimdecent via their Aliexpress store, where it can be ordered now for $216.99.
