More photos of the Zopo ZP1000, launch soon?

Love it or hate is but the ‘Vivo’ style of smartphone is very much in Vogue in China! Even a large brand name such as Zopo isn’t immune to making it’s own wannabe.

Even with their following and success in overseas markets, Chinese phone maker Zopo makes some really strange decision! Their Zopo ZP998 was an overall good phone which was well received (despite numerous bugs) but phones released since then have been lacking, screen resolution being the big gripe.

The Zopo ZP1000 represents yet another bizarre decision by the brand. Rather than producing a unique phone to distinguish themselves from smaller brands, Zopo have gone down the clone route with the ZP1000. The slender Zopo, 7.2mm thick, looks like current phones rom JiaKe and Goophone which are in turn clones of Vivo models!

Gizchina News of the week

Hardware is at least interesting with rumours saying that both an octacore MT6592 version and hexacore (6-core) MT6591 model will be available once launched. The ZP1000 will also have a 5-inch 720p Corning Gorilla Glass display, 5mp front camera, 14 mega-pixel rear, dual SIM and 2100mAh battery.

Pricing is expected to be around $259.99 once Zopo officially launch the phone. What do you make of the Zopo ZP1000? Do you think it’s a great new model or another Zopo which lacks?

    Dissapointed. In another Gizchina article ( it had better specs:

    1920 x 1080
    2GB RAM
    32GB memory
    3000mAh battery
    5MP front
    13MP rear

    The battery is the real problem

    Hey Maxwell,

    Have you found out, or, do you know if the OTA Firmware update released by Zopo last month corrected the issues with the ZP998?
    What are the most current issues still affecting ZP998 owners?

      Well I can tell you a bit about the zopo zp998 considering I’m writing this reply on one. Generally it is a very good phone, it even exceeded some of my (very high) expectations. My only gripes with the phone is 1. Even after the recent update there is still a bug with the mic. So if you are making a Skype call or recording a video there will be pretty much no audio. (The mic on regular phone calls still works fine) 2. The camera isn’t good at taking pictures of anything moving, when you move or someone else does it comes out very blury. ( records amazing video though) 3. The silver tin-like trim around the outside gets beat up or bent very easily.
      Besides these small gripes I love this phone!!! I used a Google nexus 7 before this and even with the bugs this is the better android device in my opinion

          Hey Andi I sent you an email on March 7th not sure if you got it as I doubt it would’ve been ignored.

          Let me know if I should resend it.

        Thanks for the info.

        I have had their ZP 900 Leader for the past 17months and the 1st batch of my unit had similar issues which is why I was glad that i waited as the unit I got 2months after initial release was bug free.

        Have you gone to

        There is a Forum on there where the international Zopo community really do band together and share their fixes.

        I have seen some advice on there pertaining to various different fixes, from increasing partition size for various MTK SoC’s ( to even a couple fixes for your mic issue (

        Maybe the info I have listed would help you as your user experience has helped me
