Latest Zopo leak holds no surprises, barely holds our interest


zopo leak

Zopo have posted teasers before about their camera-centric new phone, but this latest ‘leak’ is the pits! Are we seriously meant to be excited by this?

I’m sure you can tell from my recent comments about Zopo, that I firmly believe the company are going from bad to worse! From being one of the most watched Chinese phone makers, Zopo have squandered this past year releasing nothing but overpriced junk!

With JiaYu, Elephone, Lenovo, Waphone and possibly Meizu all on the cusp of selling their first 64bit phones, we are quickly loosing interest in what Zopo might be planning, and ‘leaks’ like this really don’t help their effort!

Come on Zopo show us what you are made of and launch something that will knock our socks off for once!

    Yey! At last Andi you are simply harsh to a company, I even see a litte sarcasm in there. Hope they read you blog (as it’s one famous stop for international customers) and do something about their support – quality

    You are going too far bashing them in every article.
    They do have the cheapest MT6595 device and it’s the only one with microSD plus it has 3GB RAM. Wish you were that harsh with Meizu for charging a huge premium for international buyers, they deserve it.

        The Zopo 3x that’s 300$ so not exactly cheap but cheaper than the other 3 devices with the SoC ( Meizu MX4 , Lenovo Vibe X2 and Starmobile Knight X)

              People are really retarded.

              Zopo should better start listening to their costumers as critical voices are always good, as feedback only serves to innovation.

              And those who can’t cope well with critics and just deliver regurgitated junk deserve ostracism.

      They have the cheapest MT6595M phone on the maket, based on a phone that launched this time last year. 12 months of no development and changing an SoC, in the meantime many fans have had nothing but problems and their mid range phones are overpriced and under spec. Yup, the Mx4 is way more than China, but at least it is a decent phone.

        Come on ,they released a teaser and you bash them for it. Instead of countering me,at least consider what i am saying, ask yourself if you aren’t being too harsh here.

        • December 10, 2014

          Nope, I don’t think I’m being too harsh. It’s not just about this teaser, it’s about Zopo as a whole for the past 18 months. I honestly don’t know how long they can survive on their previous reputation.

            I’ve got your same opinion… 3x is interesting for price but isn’t a revolution.. also I didn’t understand zopo’s work with low range phones.

            All my phones have been zopo and i haven’t had any of the problems that were reported in fact after the kitkat upgrade both my wife’s and i zp998 performance improved.

            However I do agree with Andi in that Zopo’s offerings have been weak. Nothing really new and captivating from them just a couple SoC upgrades and kitkat will not cut it in this competitive market.

            I’m actually considering the Huawei Ascend Mate7 as our next device

            • December 12, 2014

              Ascend Mate 7 is really nice, I would have one but waiting on the Honor 6 Plus 😀

            Andy you are right I made a big mistake of buying zp980 worst camera and full of network problems and no support from zopo

        Andi, is the zp999/3x really that bad a phone? I purchased one from 1949deal for the Mrs Christmas present about 2 weeks ago… have I made a mistake?

        (She’ll be going from a THL W100 rev1 bless…)

          Uh oh me thinks you won’t be getting any christmas pudding after she sees her present.

    Agree, own a Zopo ZP700. Really poor build quality and value. They can’t compete in today’s market with products like these.

    and what about the trolling with the sapphire glass? oh, it was only for the friking camera, not digitizer.

    Well I will side with Andi on this one! Not just by being bias but as a Philippine distributor of ZOPO. The support that they give us is far from sensational and all they care about is sales and volume discount. How can we help them promote their products if they over price us as distributors as well. We carried ZP580, ZP700, ZP980+ and ZP998. I was not excited or impressed at all by the ZP999 specs since it is based on an obsolete design and its simply a SOC upgrade in general. We even invested on a MOD of our own called Hydroid MOD (based on Kitkat4.4) to refresh the look of ZP980+ and hope it will grab more attention from consumers.

      Would love to hear more about your MOD
