zopo p5000 unboxing

Zopo, once the darling of the Chinese smartphone market, is back just in time for Christmas with the recently launched Zopo P5000 and it could be their best phone to date!

We’ve had an early Christmas present today all the way from Shenzhen based Zopo! Yup, Zopo is still about and yes they do have a new range of smartphones, possibly the best smartphones ever to ship with the Zopo name stamp on the back!

Zopo has sent me the Zopo P5000, their latest flagship phone which comes with all the hardware features that we come to expect from top of the range phones of today, plus a few nice features that actually push the P5000 in front of certain other phones on the market.

As usual, I’m starting out with a quick unboxing of the Zopo P5000 and then will follow up with a full review in the coming weeks.

The P5000 is easily the best looking Zopo phone I’ve had my hands on, and in addition to that it also has the best materials, best build quality and actually features top-end hardware.

In the past, Zopo has struggled to keep up with smartphone trends, but the Zopo P5000 is bang right up to date with a 5.99-inch HD+ 18:9 Full-Screen display! This is pretty big news for Zopo, but the hardware highlights don’t end there!

Above that full display screen, you’ll find a 16 megapixel Samsung SP3 f2.0 camera with soft LED flash. The rear has dual lens camera is made up of a 13 megapixel and 5 megapixel Sony IMX258 f2.0 sensor and beneath the attractive metal body is a huge 5000mAh battery!

With a huge battery, the P5000 is slightly thicker than similar metal bodied phones, but less time on charge is more important to most users than the physical size of the phones.

Sticking with modern trends, the P5000 uses a Type C USB 2.0 for charging and data transfer, which might not be as desirable as a faster connection but at least it’s more future-proof than a standard USB which we’re still seeing on some phones.

As the Zopo P5000 has a full-display screen and a 85% screen coverage up front, the fingerprint scanner has had to be moved to the rear of the phone just below the dual camera lens. The fingerprint scanner lens is a little smaller than some brands, but so far it has proven to be fast and accurate.

We’re also impressed to see that Zopo has shipped the P5000 with a largely stock installation of Android 7.0 and that the phone comes with Google Services and the Google Store all installed and working as they should out of the box.

The stock Android installation runs smoothly thanks to 4GB Samsung DDR3 RAM and Mediatek Helio P10 1.5Ghz octacore chipset, not the most modern processor but it’s powerful enough for most uses and supports most common LTE networks too.

Other details include 64GB Samsung internal memory, space for a micro SD card and dual nano SIM slots.

For those of you who can’t wait for the full review and need to get their hands on the Zopo P5000 now, Zopo is offering the phone direct on their official web store for just $269.00.

    Man everything was impressive until I reach the processor… Glad to see them back, this phone could almost be perfect in comparison with the competition, but the old Chipset pushes it back, well let’s see how Zopo will perform in the future, so far other things in the phone looks really good.

    Lost me at Helio p10. Sounded like it had a lot of potential up until that point. There are too many very nice phones in the $250-300 range to settle for one with an outdated inefficient SoC

    “hardware features that we come to expect from top of the range phones of today”?? how so? when the chipset is the old p10 and the display is not even FHD at USD269. Well, someone is overly enthused.. I can easily name 10 phones that are much better in terms of hardware and pricing.

    clearly a biased sponsored article. haha.

        Seriously, who really wants those 11 cheap free gift anyway? I’d rather have a FHD and better chipset over that. A bad deal if you ask me.

    it may be the best zopo, but it’s an overpriced phone.
    twice the price for an Umidigi S2 with a degraded processor looks quite a lot.

      December 25, 2017

      Hey Riccardo, the price mentioned in the article is not only for the phone, it’s a Christmas package that includes 11 phone accessories and other items and will be shipped to you for free, the phone is included in the package – for free!

        Nice try Mr. Lee but zopo can not disguise no more… Zopo can give 11 gifts for free but Zopo don’t have quality and customer service… Zopo is a scam that fooled a lot of people…

          January 4, 2018

          I agree about the customer service John but not about the quality. Me and my wife have in total 5 Zopo’s, if I include the Zopo’s that my family and friends own, more than 15, they all still working fine.

      • Riccardo Benzoni
        December 25, 2017

        article should have mentioned this, it doesn’t help the way it’s written.
        If someone needs those accessories, it starts to be a good offer, especially for the 1tb portable hard drive from WD, usually sold for around 70-75$.
        But if people only want the phone, it’s not that much appealing.

    Never had one problem with my Zopo’s (ZP980, ZP998, ZP999 and Speed 7+) they all still working fine.
    I tested the P5000 from my son and compared it with my Samsung Galaxy S8, you all know the price of the S8, and the P5000 is faster in everything we test. The P5000’s battery holds for approx. 3 to 4 days. The S8 10 hours!! The front camera of the P5000 is phenomenal compared with my S8! The P5000 is completely in metal, the S8’s back is glass, and yes, already broken!
    Yes… the firm Zopo has to work on their communication, but they are working on it, they answer mails way faster than they use to do.
    Long story short, I sold my Galaxy S8 and ordered a P5000 with the (cheap) accessories! Long live ZOPO!!

    Gee, why using this ‘terrible’ CPU and it is even not the helio P10(6755)?
    But precisely that processor’s used by a plethora of other mid tier phones by other brands.
    As an owner of a HONOR 9 there is no need to buy another smartphone.
    But for gaming I thought I could use a bigger screen and the P5000 not just looked great but is also equipped with a hefty accu.
    And up until now I am very pleased with the performance of the Zopo P5000 and the decision not to go for a fhd panel was not that bad either.
    Definitely more pros than cons
