GizChina: Zopo C3 unboxing and hands on video

Another look at the Zopo C3 today this time with an unboxing and brief hands on video.

We posted some hands on photos of the new Zopo C3 earlier today, now we have the unboxing video and a brief hands on with the latest quad-core, 1080 Zopo phone.

As we had the Zopo C2 at hand we also show the two phones side by side and give our impressions on the design and feel.

Gizchina News of the week

The Zopo C3 features a 5-inch 1080 display, 1.5Ghz quad-core MT6589T processor, 1GB RAM, 13.1 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front and 2000mAh battery. The model we have on review is a white version but a pink model is also available from too.

    Hmm great unboxing video. I have been using my zopo c2 16gb China edition
    with latest ROMi flashed on aliyun os for about 4 days. Have not experienced any ghost touches. Seems very stable except ROM laggs habit. Might do a review soon

    Andi can you please tell me if the ZOPO ZP810 chassis suffers from the same ease of bending as ZP980 / C2 / C3 models?

      No, it feels solid as far as I can remember

    Hi Andy,
    Have you heard of Model Scorpio ZOPO C2?
    Waiting for reply

    Hi Andy,

    I love your page. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Can you confirm if Zopo C3 has a Gorilla display? Can you tell the difference now that you have both C2 and C3 on hand?

    FYI, I reached out to ZopoMobile Team to confirm whether C3 has Gorilla display. While one ZopoMobile staff says “C2 16gb white color and C3 white color all are Gorilla,” another ZopoMobile staff directed me to a link indicating the C3 does not have a Gorilla display.

    Now that is so confusing.

      It is confusing! I’ll have a word next week

    It would be good to know the differences between the C2 Platinum and C3. As well as the question about Gorilla Glass. There is also a question about resolution of video recording. The C2 Platinum records at 1080p whereas the C3 records at 720p max. Can you please confirm?

    Also it would be good to compare this generation of phones with the 2Gb Ram phones coming and to determine if they are significantly faster, and whether they are worth paying the extra to get, i.e. bang for buck. Have you tested and bench marked a 2Gb Ram MT6589T phone yet?

    Thanks for creating such a great website and for all your hard work keeping it up to date

    Of late, wait for Gizchina’s reviews are becoming similar to waiting for launch of phones from Jiayu……… Still waiting for review of Zopo C2, Zopo Zp980 and FAEFA F1, since weeks……… 🙁

    What about ghost touch on C3? is it still there? also black color for c3 is available?

    • July 7, 2013

      No ghost touch. Not sure about black

    Thanks Andy for the video. The camera seems very fast; is its quality the same as C2?
    Another user suggested the screen of C3 is better protected against crashing compared to C2; what’s your impression?
    People like the GPS speed of C2; is this the same for C3? For international use I’d like to know GPS speed without GPS-assist; did you try this?

    Cheers, Herman

    Some other ZOPO’s have a turbo version with 2 Gb RAM. It seems reasonable to expect that the C3 will also come in such version. Has anybody seen announcements?
