    I would rather shoot myself in the face than give my money to those clowns again. Zopo is the biggest joke in the world.

      What unit did you get from them, that, you found was a waste of time and money for what you got?

      Do share with us so we all can make an informed choice!

        LOL….i think he is referring the the pre-order mix up that went down December regarding the zp998. Other than pre-ording(which i dont recommend) zopo devices are quiet good for the price. Just be sure to get one with 2gb RAM for a more awesome experience.

          I had hoped he would’ve replied.

          I own a Zopo ZP900 Leader. I got it back in October 2012 and I’m in the U.S.

          That phone has worked more than perfect and has taken everything i’ve thrown at it. I decided to not go the quad core route as i was awaiting the octo-core release.

          But even then with the ZP900 I awaited the 3rd to 4th production run to give them an opportunity to work out the kinks.

          Now with the potential of 4G LTE octo-cores to see the light of day soon I will await the 3rd to 4th production run of those, then, I’d shop Zopo again as the wife and i have had zero issues with our units.

          It simply out performs the price i paid for our units

          Correct, I am referring to the pre-orders. I agree that the devices seem to be quite good for the money. I would not trust the company though, I don’t trust them do deliver the phones or give me a valid warranty if something happens.

        Thanks Bro…I hope it’ll be available till then…So the stock is limited for this price or normal retail price in china is 1499 yuan??

        • January 27, 2014

          Price will most probably stay at 1499 Yuan, but there can be long gaps between two batch releases like we see here
