Changhong expects Chinese customers to pay $1000 for the Changhong H1


If you had $1000 to spend on an Android smartphone which would you buy? An Oppo N1? A couple of Xiaomi Mi3, Meizu MX3, Gionee Elife E7? Or this Mediatek equipped Changhong abomination?

The Changhong H1 is possibly the tackiest, most ugly smartphone I have every seen! I know you all don’t share my views on the gold-plated monstrosity, but I am fairly confident that you will agree with me when I say it isn’t worth $1000!

Changhong have taken the specification from a regular 2014 Chinese flagship phone and quadrupled the price! Specifications include a 1.7ghz octacore processor, 5.5-inch 1080 display, 2GB RAM, 32Gb memory, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, and 3200mAh battery, by no means a bad set up, but hardly worthy of such a price!

There are a few standout features though such as an optional 7000mAh battery and… well… no that’s it!

I imagine that Changhong hope thousands of H1’s will be bought up for the Chinese New Year and given as gifts, but if anyone is thinking of getting me one I’ll take an Mi3, Elife E7 and Huawei Honor 3C and use the change to buy a nice mea!

    There is a proverb that the dog measures his ass before eating a bone… They may be knowing that rich people will still buy it… Why people are buying crap apple products… Because they are having money but I will not buy apple products even if I can afford.

    Dear lord. If they built it like the renders,and that price includes the extended battery,and the total 10,000mAh was less than 10mm, maybe. But they didn’t, so no. The gold was just applied in such a tacky manner,same with the paint job. Terrible.
