Siswoo Cooper i7 MT6752 unboxing and hands on


It’s raining MT6752 phones! We just reviewed the awesome and powerful JiaYu S3 some days back, and we already have a couple more MT6752 phones in the office: the iOcean Rock and the Siswoo Cooper i7. The former is a phone that you probably might have heard of before, but the Cooper i7 most likely would’ve come to you as a surprise.

The Cooper i7 is one of Siswoo’s first two phones, the other being the more powerful Monster R8. The Cooper i7 that we have here comes with the same 64-bit, octa-core MT6752 processor as the iOcean Rock and the JiaYu S3, but features a smaller 5-inch screen that makes it one of the first 5-inch MT6752 phones.

Siswoo Cooper i7 Specifications

Unlike the iOcean Rock, the Cooper i7 packs only 2GB of RAM. Design language is quite similar also, but the Siswoo has a lot of Meizu in it as well. Lets take a look at the complete specifications of the phone:

  • 5-inch 1280 x 720p display
  • 1.5GHz octa-core MT6752 64-bit processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB on-board storage, expandable
  • 8 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 5 mega-pixel front camera
  • 2100mAh battery
  • 4G LTE support
  • Dual SIM
  • Android v4.4 KitKat

Siswoo Cooper i7 Unboxing Video

As you can see from the video, the phone is quite pleasing on the eye with the sleek Meizu MX4-esque design and of course, the glowing halo (that seems to be getting really popular in China). In fact, if anything, the Cooper i7 looks like a 2nd or 3rd generation iPod Touch to the unassuming.

Siswoo Cooper i7 First Impressions

The phone is extremely comfortable to hold in the hand, more so than the Xiaomi Mi 4 with its sharp-ish edges. The 5-inch screen size means that the phone is easily usable in one hand also. The phone also supports double tap to wake and other gesture actions that come in very handy when you’re using the phone with just one hand.

Overall build quality seems pretty impressive for a new manufacturer. The phone will certainly find many a competitor in the coming weeks, but it has a head-start in the market with the smaller than average size and perhaps a better than average build.

A review of the Siswoo Cooper i7 will be coming soon. Meanwhile, feel free to take a look at the listing of the device on popular reseller Chinavasion’s website, where it goes for US$199.

    Yeah, great. But what about support … or it is yet another Chinese smartphone of one version?

    Wow this looks amazing, wondering if the battery will be enough for a whole day normal usage (internet, calls). What’s your thought regarding the Lenovo P70 with MTK6752?

    February 19, 2015

    Seems like they wasted MT6752 with that specs. With MT6732 performance would be identical and cheaper.

      Hi Guaire, I am reading your comments most of the time and was wondering if you could suggest me a phone? I will use the device for calls, internet and maybe gaming (I am not a heavy game player). I would of course take some pictures and make some videos.

      Specs:
      2GB RAM at least
      CPU MTK6752 or 6732 or Snapdragon
      Screen size 4.7 to 5.1″
      Nice build quality
      Decent battery considering the specs (replaceable if possible but it is rare these days)
      Good camera
      Budget: 260€ Max

      List of phones:
      Xiaomi MI4 16gb Black Version (below my budget)
      Xiaomi Redmi 2 Enhanced Version
      Iuni U2
      Lenovo P70 (with a 4000mAh battery)
      ZTE Blade S6

      Siswoo Cooper i7THL 2015
      Meizu M1 Mini

      My preference would be a phone with a community for bugs resolution and rom updates.

      I am really tempted by the Lenovo P70. Your help will be much appreciated.

      Thanks.

        Mi4 outclassed rest of them except IUNI U2. Xiaomi has a large community and gets updates frequently. Most Chinese brands usually lack of that. Also you should know these are previous year’s high-end devices.

        P70’s battery life should be great on the paper. Some sources says it has MT6752 16GB internal storage and 2GB RAM, others says MT6732 8GB/1GB. Check out the link.

        http://item.jd.com/1313838.html

        If your need isn’t urgent you should consider waiting a bit. There is a good chance Mi4’s price will be discounted within a couple of months. It happened for Mi3.

        If they release an enchanted variant of Meizu M1 -like Redmi 2- it could be a decent and cheap alternative.

          Hi Guaire, thank you for your answer. Like you said, I will have to wait for months before I see a significant price drop for the Xiaomi MI4. The IUNI U2 is an amazing phone but its major downside is its battery.

          There are 2 models for the Lenovo P70 with different specs. For the Meizu M1, I think that I will have to wait 2/3 months to see it on sale. Moreover, Meizu haven’t announced the M1 FDD version.

          Maybe I should get Redmi 2 Enhanced or ZTE Blade S6.

            where do u live? The Gionee Elife E7 has a snapdragon 800 with 3gigs of ram. It sells for $200 us dollars, $227 canadain dollars, or €158.61 on oppomart.
            Here is the link for the canadain store. Hurry, its on a deal

          • jalebi Singh
            February 19, 2015

            however the e7 is a bit big, at 5.5 inches

        you must wait for kingzone z1 or you can go kingzone z3 plus. they have great build quality and fast updates.

        • Jan
          February 20, 2015

          Thank you everyone for the suggestions, the Kingzone Z1, Meizu MX4 and Gionee Elife E7 might be too big for my hands. Indeed, Kingzone Z3 looks great but I will wait for other reviews before to decide.

    It seems too expensive for me especially being a newbie. I am still sticking with Jiayu s3 am afraid .

  6. roni24
    February 19, 2015

    great looking device- finally, but what about the battey, cant they give it a 2700mAh at least, or 3000 like jiayu s3.
    and what about the gps?

  7. kermitto

    nice looking phone.. that logo though…

  8. jalebi Singh

    seems that price is a bit high for the display and screen it offers, but time will tell.

  9. Bojan Radovanović
    February 20, 2015

    it’s not a “1.5GHz octa-core MT6752 64-bit processor” — it’s 1,7GHz

    and on “to big price” posts: i don’t get U guys, what do you looking for, free phones?
    this processor is better, then one in meizu note mini and rest of 150-170$ company, screen is good size and 720p is more then good for that size. not everyone is loking for 5,5 phone…and i’m glad that this one exists.
    price is perfectlly mached for spec, but for me only problem is battery.

    • Nick
      February 20, 2015

      Deeply agree with you, only downside is battery but I am really tempted to order it or the ZTE Blade S6.

      • Bojan Radovanović
        February 20, 2015

        i don’t thing that woud be mastake…only by my opinion snapdragon in it is little weaker then mt6752, and consuming more power. but, i did not use it,so it’s just a thought based on what i have read on this and similar sites. what is shore, is phones with it have litlle biger prices.

        and one more thing about battery….we all wont to have more then 3000mAh bateries, but…2400mAh in this Blade model is not weak. new Sammy S6 will have 2600mAh, old S3 whose chipset is more thursty then new ones had only 2100 mAh battery….and it was ok for one day usage

      February 20, 2015

      Hi Bojan, I am wondering if you can suggest me a device in the list below. My budget is around 270€ max but I would prefer to save some money.

      List of phones:
      Siswoo Cooper i7
      THL 2015
      Kingzone N3 Plus
      Redmi 2 Enhanced
      ZTE Blade S6 (recently released, it has pretty decent specs for the price below 200€)
      Xiaomi MI4 16gb Black Version (below my budget, wondering when the price will drop)
      Xiaomi Redmi 2 Enhanced Version
      IUNI U2 (released a couple of months ago)
      Lenovo P70 (pretty good phone with MTK6752 and a 4000mAh battery)
      Meizu M1 Mini (don’t know the availability)

      Your help will be much appreciated.

        Why not the ZTE Nubia Z7 mini/ max? Great phone, looks good and has awesome hardware. Since the OS update from about a month ago or so the software has been great too!

        • Jan
          February 20, 2015

          Z7 Mini has a 2300 mAh battery which is a big downside for a long term usage and Z7 Max is too big for me. Thank you for the suggestion.

          • Mrinal
            February 20, 2015

            And the Jiayu S3? I believe it has a 3000mAh battery.

            Edit: Nevermind, it’s also a 5.5inch phone, so probably also too big..

            • Jan
              February 20, 2015

              With a 5” screen I would have bought Jiayu S3 but I will pass my turn.

      • Bojan Radovanović
        February 20, 2015

        i’m not shore that i am best person to ask, ‘cose i did not have or try any of them. i can just write my opinion…and other guys can write theirs.

        i had neken n6T and now i’m using redmi 1s, so i cann recomend it and guess that redmi2 is better as is mi4(my favorite on your list).
        Siswoo and Kingzone are not brands in wich am i familiar, but they could be good (as my neken was to me).

        but next to IUNI U2,Meizu M1mini and Xiaomi MI4, i woud not wach them.
        and those 3 will have best support.
        but that’s me…

        • Jan
          February 20, 2015

          Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately I don’t have the budget for the Xiaomi MI4 which is around 350€ with shipping costs for the Black 16GB version. IUNI U2 has great specs but its battery is not impressive. Damn, it is so difficult to find the right phone in the market. I have the feeling that I have to pay at least 350€ to get something close to my requirements. I think that I will wait reviews of the ZTE Blade S6 then will decide what to buy: Redmi 2 or ZTE Blade S6 or Lenovo P70.

          • Bojan Radovanović
            February 20, 2015

            i must say that i’m not impressed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 in Blade6, Lenovo in other hand have perfect battery (at least on papir) but my problem with it is 1GB of RAM. enough for some….but for me it is “no go”.

            so in your place, i would buy redmi 2 (but 2GB version) or would wait month,two…for meizu M1 mini.
            that should be great phones to all of us who don’t need best spec. there is on market, and that it is not to big. in same tim, thy have spec good for all tasks, exept for some big games. so for some, buying flagships are waste of money to something they dont really need.

            i don’t know where are you from, but maybe you shoud check prises of new phones on some “web marketplace”. in croatia we have have njuskalo.hr, norway have finn.no, mayby even amazon and ebay are ok….and watch for new or little used LG G2, witch could be find new for cca 200e. SGS4 also….Sony Z1 compact. all phones with good battery life,and nice prices…and spec that are still in top.

            plus, you should try some of Nokia/M$ windows phones…Lumia 730-830, or 635. for someone who just need phone to call,surf and some social apps…more then good phones and OS.

            ps. sorry for my english, i’m not using it often, so i have some problems with it 😉

              Maybe you could buy an lenovo vibe x2 5″, same processor as mx4 and display an cost around 210$ at aliexpress from a good reseller only let downs are the small battery and the software

            • Bojan Radovanović
              February 20, 2015

              yeah…that’s ok smartphone…i mean, 2300mAh battery should be good on that kind of phone,if we take f.e. galaxy s3.
              but it’s also last years model…and new ones is knocking.

              i like this new anounsed line of Vibe phones…but i couln’t find what is the size of Lenovo Vibe S1!?
              that one is maybe lenovo’s bestseller if it is not bigger then 5′ and priced good as meizu m1 mini and xiaomi redmi 2(not more then 200-220$).

              4000mAh battery, 2GB RAM and 64bit processor plus LTE , its all what most of us users ine real life need.

              Thank you for your messages Bojan and other users. Regarding the Lenovo P70 you can check its specs on the following website: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Lenovo-P70_id9192 . I will wait for other reviews and then will decide. On paper it seems to be a perfect device for those who are looking for “mid range” phones. Lenovo Vibe X2 is very interesting, I will for sure read the reviews.

              Bojan, I agree with you concerning what you have wrote above. In my opinion a Redmi 2 with Snapdragon CPU 615 or MTK6572 and a battery around 2500 mAh would have been a killer mid range phone with a huge selling potential worldwide. I don’t understand why manufacturers are producing phones with screens above 5 inch and awful designs. People who are willing to buy a phone with a screen between 4.5 and 5 inch are forgotten and it is shame.

        Jan,
        The Xiaomi RedMi Note 4G is a great phone for the price if your primary purpose is NOT gaming. It’s easily upgradable to MIUI 6 and includes Kitkat 4.4.4. Battery life is great and there are weekly OTA software updates every Friday. I also owned a Moto G (2014), another great phone for the money – especially if you live in the US (or know someone in the US who can handle the shipping and RMA process for you) since Motorola’s warranty program is outstanding. If you ever have a problem with your phone, they will fix or replace your phone within four days for free or for just $75 after the first year.
        I now own a OnePlus One 64GB which I use as my daily driver – great phone and great value for the money but way above my needs. In any event, you have a great list to start with. I would also add the Jiayu S3 and new ZenPhone 2 – both have superior specs to everything on your list and fall within your allocated budget.

    Like the Lenovo Vibe X2, like the Honor 6 and like the Nubia Z7 mini, the hardware seems to be ok, but what about the OS? In many reviews lots of people tremble over little or serious flaws in the software of these phones.

  11. Don Rogers
    February 24, 2015

    This initially looks like exactly what I was looking for, a MTK6752 phone with a screen less than 5.5 inches, but with a small battery and a not so good camera as many other phones it seems to be another let down. If it had a 2600 to 3000 mah battery and a 13 / 8 mega pixel back / front camera then this would be a great phone

I am also interested by the THL 2015 and Lenovo P70. Redmi 2 Enhanced version might be a good alternative too. Your help will be appreciated. Mustafa
