Sooo many strange comments here, makes me wonder what the average age of the ones posting could be.

Never heard of Zopo? Well there are many relatively small phone Manufacturers in China that makes great phones with lovely design and very decent - near stock ROMs. Such as Zopo, Ulefone, Jiayu, Umi, Elephone and many others.

Zopo is not a very new company, nor very old company, and they started up in 2008. They have pretty much done as most other chinese phone manufacturers have, making very decent phones with MTK inside and usually Sony or OmniVision camera sensor.

Since MTK in 2012/2013 started making CPU's that no longer were years behind the power of Snapdragon, Exynos and others, considering phones from the likes of Zopo and others was actually not so bad. I got my first, direct-from-China, Zopo in 2013. The Zopo 990, and it's large screen, great battery made it perfect for my needs.

Having seen how quickly Mediatek's CPU grow in speed and both gaining on, and now even passing Qualcomm for those who still care for benchmark tests, despite most mid to high end phones having overkill CPU/GPU hardware for some time now, it becomes difficult to not consider phones with MTK inside.

Just last week my wife got her new Ulefone Power. So why that phone instead of others, including big brands? Well, try and find any phone from any of the big brands with specs anywhere near 5.5" FHD IPS, 3GB RAM and power similar to MT6753 at a similar price range, $200. There isn't one, not anywhere near it. Closest chipset competitor is Snapdragond 615, wich has less power and is also less power efficient.


Now then if you go on to include that hefty 6000 mAh battery, 13MP Sony shooter with dedicated camera button, dual SIM (or Sim+microSD) and finger print reader, you'll quickly see what a great bargain that phone is - at least for those who demand a large built in battery. If not, then there are many others, including from Ulefone and Zopo, that has near identical specs in many different designs from the mentioned manufacturers above at a even lower price.

After owning the Zopo ZP990 for a while I got the Xperia Z Ultra, as I wanted an even bigger screen. And my brother in-law has the ZP990. Now I'm waiting for a Helio X20 device with a large enough screen and hopefully a very decent battery compared to my Xperia.

Maybe a Zopo, maybe something else :o)

Oh, and since these phones run android, even tiny little Norway and it's gloablly speaking extremely few citizens (inlcuding myself and my wife) can enjoy our native norwegian language on the phones we buy direct from China. It's actually not that long ago this was pretty impossible.

I mean look at all the comments on literally any phone on this website. They bash it for every single little thing. Screen size, RAM, cpu, camera, battery life. You could have a phone come out tomorrow with a 20 core processor, 10 gb of ram, 50 mp camera, 6000 mhz, for like 200 bucks, and some idiots on GSM would still somehow find a way to complain about inconsequential bs. There's criticism and then there's whining. GSM commentators are the latter.
