MT6732 powered KingZone N3 Plus goes on sale for $160, offers fingerprint security and 2GB RAM


KingZone is a popular Chinese phone manufacture, especially in Europe. The company makes some good phones, albeit more expensive than other similar devices from Chinese makers.

Another phone from the company just went on sale — the KingZone N3 Plus. The phone is powered by the impressive MediaTek MT6732 64-bit chipset (the same SoC that powers the Elephone P6000), and has the same amount of RAM as the P6000 as well — 2GB. As you might have already made out from the name, the N3 Plus is an upgrade to the original KingZone N3 (review).

A 5-inch 720p screen sits on top of the aforementioned internals on the N3 Plus. On the camera segment, the phone boasts of a 13 mega-pixel rear sensor and an 8 mega-pixel front, to make for an impressive (sounding) repertoire. Other than that, the phone has a 2500mAh battery, dual SIM support and a rather sleek design.

Another feature that’s certainly getting popular in Chinese phones is fingerprint recognition, which the KingZone N3 Plus supports along with NFC (if you manage to find a use case for it, that is). In all, the phone looks like a VFM affair and can be had from GearBest for US$160 with free shipping.

What do you think about the device? Let us know in the comments section.

    The Kingzone N3 original was a consideration for me to buy as it supports all major 4G frequencies in the UK but I decided to wait for the Jiayu S3. I really wanted a 5 inch or smaller screen with one of the new 64 bit soc’s. If the N3 Plus was around 2 weeks ago I would have bought it but I have already ordered the S3

      It was available for the K1, I’m sure someone will port it to this one too.

        Hi mate, I read your comments most of the time and I was wondering if you definitely recommend Kingzone (good community to resolve issues, ROM updates) and its upgraded N3 Plus. I need to buy a new device and I am planning to get one in the following list:

        Meizu M1 Mini (with 2GB RAM)
        Kingzone N3 Plus
        Redmi 2 Enhanced (with 2GB RAM)
        IUNI U2

        Expensive one: Xiaomi MI4 Black (only 16GB version is available but wondering if storage will be enough)

        Which device should I buy? Your help will be much appreciated.

        Thanks.

          All depends on what you use a phone for. Do you want a really good camera? Do you want to play the most demanding games? Do you want to pay a certain amount? Do you have a preferred screen size?

            Sorry mate, I should have precised that in my initial message. Well I would use the device for phone calls of course, internet and maybe gaming (like FIFA but I am not really sure, I am not a gamer). I want a decent camera, we never know it might be useful. My preferred screen size would be something from 4,7 to 5,2 inch (width around 72mm max), a strong battery replaceable would be great but hard to find these days.

            My budget is maximum 300€ but I would prefer to save money too.

            It will be my first intelligent phone.

            Thanks.

        Im kinda worried the cameras might be some interpolated crap for this cheap a price.

    Will be interesting too see what the battery life is like, as accornig to Colonel Zap’s review of the N3 the battery life wasn’t too good. Would also be interested to see how the camera performs in low light. The camera on the N3 was quite good according to reviews – after the firmware was updated, but have not heard about low light performance.

    You know android 5.0 has been out for a while now so why not ship new phones with it since they all have 64-bit processors however android 4.4. isn’t 64-bit but android 5.0 is.

    The battery is 2800 not 2500

    The corners on this phone look awfully pointed. Why not round those a bit. Isn’t b comfort in the hand important? Does anyone have the previous n3 find it uncomfortable to hold?

    Kingzone N3 got bad reviews from many reviewers, in terms of the screen and the camera. It could be the same for this plus version. Of course, I am just speculating. So we need the in-depth review for this.

    I bought the N3+ from Gearbest. It just arrived today. The build quality is really good, far better than the plasticky THL T11. Got a OTA update, then I root it with iRoot (use PC version cuz the apk does not work). Everything run fast and smooth. Installed GO Launcher which also works fast and smooth. Wifi has good strength. 3G works in Canada (Rogers) – I don’t have 4G/LTE (and I already know the phone’s 4G bands are not compatible). So far just one problem – the graphics of the silly Fruit Slice game (Fruit Ninja clone) stutters.

      I am from Canada as well and looking to buy this phone but I was hoping the 2600 LTE band of the N3 would work on Rogers/Fido. Any luck with getting the LTE to work? Also any other updates or review you could give me.
      Thanks, Cory
