iOcean MT6752 Rock hands on and first impressions


iocean mt6752 rock

iOcean have sent us one of the first iOcena MT6752 Rock phones to test out. Keep reading for our iOcean MT6752 Rock hands on and first impressions photos and video.

I have been lucky to see the iOcean MT6752 in various stages of development. I had some hands on time with an early prototype and just moments ago our final production sample had arrived. The iOcean MT6752 Rock is a similar level device to the JiaYu S3. It features the same octacore MT6752 64bit processor, comes with 5.5-inch FHD display and gets with 3GB RAM (standard on the iOcean).

While JiaYu went for a more standard Android phone look and layout, iOcean decided to go their own way and make some interesting choices. First up we have a silver front panel around that 5.5-inch display, an interesting choice and a nice change from the usual white or black faces.

The rear panel of the iOcean MT6752 has a finish that looks almost like stone. The finish is slightly mottled, not rough like the Sandstone Black OPO, but still offers extra grip. The finish also helps explain the ‘Rock’ name too.

A long rounded oblong shape with large display reminds me of the iPhone 6 Plus, but the bezels are much narrower and there is no physical home button. In fact there are no buttons at all on the chin of the phone. It’s of personal opinion if you like capacitive buttons or on screen controls, so too is your opinion on the extended chin design of the iOcean. I’ve only used the phone for a few short moments so cannot comment just yet.

iOcean MT6752 First impressions

The iOcean MT6752 Rock has a rather unique design, one which you are either going to love or hate. The phone also has a few different design and specification choices too including the navigation controls, single LED etc.

Overall I am surprised by the phone! Now that I have had my hands on the final production model I’d say it looks much better than photos suggest.

I’m still not sure about the large chin, but I do like the speed of the phone, it’s very snappy and so far the ROM is stable and smooth. As always I’ll put the iOcean MT6752 Rock through its paces and post a full review soon.

Thanks to iOcean for sending over the review sample.

        Damn Yasir – that’s a good phone. Comes with an IMX214 Sony Sensor as well. Andi – I think you should do a review of the Kingzone Z1 – looks really good.

          its NOT out yet and has the downside of having ONLY a 720p screen :/
          other than that , it looks great.

          Happy to help!

          P.S : glad to hear someone call me from my second name 😀 , almost everyone else used my first name which’s so uncommmon on my side 🙂 !

            720p screen is more than enough. For goodness sake most HD channels and movies are 720 on my 42 inch TV. The world went crazy with 2k screens. Plus 720 is better for battery life.

              YEA , i agree with the battery life thing.
              Even tho i’d love to see how 2k screens look like , i have NEVER EVER seen a 2k phone in real time

              So own a jiayu g4s, huawei honor plus and Oppo find 7. My jiayu g4s screen is better, sharper and in phones we’ve been sold a scam of higher than 720. Trust me guys happy to do a write. How do I know this? I’m a film maker. I know my resolution inside out.

      I know it’s off topic but…
      I am having a hard time to compare these to chips, can you tell me where I can find a comparison between 6595 and 6752 , cpu and gpu? I am between Jiayu S3 and Oppo 3x and aparently you know something about it.
      thanks

      • February 20, 2015

        6752 is a 64bit processor with Mali T760 GPU, the MT6595 is a 32bit chip with a G6200 GPU. Both chips have native LTE support, but the MT6595 also benefits from a few neat high end features that the mid range MT6752 does not such as Core Pilot, Clear Motion and Miravision. So far we know for sure the MT6752 is getting Android 5.0 Lollipop but we haven’t seen proof of that for the MT6595.

          Isn’t the leonovo announced last time update to 5.0 for mt6595 ?

          thank you very much , but my doubts is about rough power, If I am playing demanding games and multitasking too much, how they compare in situations like that.
          comparing gpu
          comparing multitask
          Cause I want my next phone the snappiest I can afford and right now I can afford paying a nice price these 3 phones:
          zopo 3x
          jiayu s3
          gione elife s7 – no dual sim 🙁 – no removable battery 🙁

          how can 6595 be 32 bit?!

    5.5′ screen with 2300mAh battery, are they stupid or what?
    no buttons, so the virtual buttons take part of the screen, so its no really 5.5′ screen.
    199$ while the jiayu s3 cost 189$.
    no thanks, forget it……..

    Hopefully someone will come out with a 5in 6752 phone soon.

    • Marius Cirsta
      February 20, 2015

      Yep, I’m saying no to anything over 5 in. We need to draw the line somewhere or we’re going to be talking on 7 in tablets soon.

        To me this phone doesn’t make sense at all. It’s a low range phone with a mid-range SoC and price.
        I meant a real 6752 phone with the appropriate specs like the M1 Note, Jiayu S3 or iOcean but with a smaller display.

    All too common form factor. Not for me.

    So the name of the phone is “rock” hu? A well suited name to DIVE AND DROWN in the ocean with that small battery.

    Not only is the battery too small, the refresh rate is too low @ 53hz.
