Factory tour: Here’s how your favourite Zopo phone is made!


Right after bringing to you a tour of the JiaYu factory, we’re back with a factory tour video of another favourite manufacturer among Chinese tech fans — Zopo!

Zopo, like most other Chinese manufacturers trending today, are a quite a young company with just over a year’s worth of experience in the smartphone market. The company has risen through ranks at pace and is regarded as the favourite by many an enthusiast, who at the moment await the launch of Zopo’s first 8-core phone. Chinese smartphone reseller Antelife had a chance to visit the Zopo factory.

Considering that the company is just over a year old, manufacturing standards look impressive and quite professional, making the 4-year JiaYu factory look sloppy in more ways than one. Agreed?

    I’ve seen many workers doing things barehanded. Is that professional? And no ESD protection on critical places… I think ZOPO is in urgent need of improvement.

      no need in this faces as they don’t really touch the electronics of the phones, as I inspected the video I saw a worked take off the glove as soon as she passed the block full of disassembled phones to the next worker, that means that they do keep off working barehanded when it is critical for the safety of the electronics inside the phone.

      Overall it look like a professional factory.
      kudos to Zopo

    Not bad for a one year old chinese company, but still disappointing.

      Why disappoint?

        Too much manual work, to many potential point of failure, messy environment. Just like at Jiayu. But I suppose they are still better than those little “noname” brands. I have seen great chinese phones, but they are still risky according to the videos.
