Hi ColonelGreat video.Till now, what is the most performant android phone you've tested and that you'd recommend.Thanks
Hi and thanks :-)I think all the new MT6575 phones perform pretty much the same. It doesn't make much of difference if it's a Zopo ZP100, an IHTC One X or a Lenovo A750 phone. Those are the three MT6575 phones I had so far. Well, the A750 seems to score SLIGHTLY higer in some benchmark tests, that's because it has a lower screen resolution than the other two phones.
I'm very interested in these phones but can't find any information on things that are important for use as a phone e.g.Ringer volumeVibration effectivenessReal standby timeRF sensitivity (in weak signal areas)Can you help?
Hi :-) Not really?!?The ringer volume is quite loudVibration I would say "normal"Standby is tough to say. I charged it last night, about 18 hours later the battery is at 88% but I haven't done much with the phone in that time.I don't know how well the RE sensitivity really is, my 3G network is very weak where I live but the GSM reception is very good. I don't know how it is in weaker areas, I live right in a city :-)
I am between the ZOPO 100 and the IHTC One x. What about build quality? Which one would you recommend?
They are almost identical. I like the ZP100 slightly better because it has a notication LED on the front that the One X doesn't have. Other than that, just go for the design you like better :-)
How about battery life. It is reported that the MT6575 are real drainers....
I really can't tell you. I only use one simcard, charged it last night, approx. 21,5 hours later it's at 86%. Didn't do much in that time, mostely just standby.
Hi Zap,I'm looking to buy a new phone. Can you make a top from: ZTE Skate, Zopo ZP100, IHTC One X and Lenovo A750. Feel free to add other recommendations.Thanks!
Hello,Any general impressions on ZP100 FM radio capabilities from anybody? I'd appreciate a short summary, a few screen shots or link.Thanks a lot
Hello ColonelZap, Could you please post some photos taken at night with the ZP100?

Excellent work!I've been watching some phones MTK6575 processor, this is one of them.Recently I met another terminal: Jiayu G2, but I have not found much information or reviews to talk about their performance, as their technical specifications are interesting.This is the official website:That model MTK6575 recommend???there is a chance for you to make a review on this phone (Jiayu G2)?, could check the WCDMA 3G support at frequencies 850/1900 Mhz?Thank you!JuanK Correa.
Dear Colonel Zap,Very interesting Blog, congratulations.I have a question after checked blog and google. How I could load recovery (and what) in Zopo 100 pilot in ICS?Thnals in advance.
Hi Colonel,First of all, thank you for helpful blog. I have been following this from last few months. My Zopo Pilot (ZP100) came with ICS so I decided to downgrade it to Gingerbread. But when I did that, my touch screen stop working. Display is ok but the touch screen Digitizer) is not working...any idea. I think it is not a hardware issue???? What do you think?? Any solution???Thanks a ton in ADV.Joy
Thanks :-)If your touchscreen stopped working right after you flashed the new firmware than I am pretty sure it's a firware problem, not a hardware problem.Solution? Try to find a firmware that works for your phone, maybe you can find one there?http://www.zopomobile.com/xiazai.phpSorry, that's the best I can tell you.
Thanks Colonel for quick reply, I appreciate it. I'll look around for some suitable firmware. By the way the firmware I used for downgrading, was downloaded from above mentioned site. Anyways, I'll Google it and post the updates (Hope I'll found one)....JOY
Servus Herr Colonel!Ausgezeichnete Info hier - many, many thanks. A quick question about the ZP100: how do we fool Google Play into allowing Zp100 to receive some of the applications it forbids? As in "Alps ZP100: This item is not compatible with your device"? Ideen? Einsichten? Vorschläge? Gibt's ein Trick?Danke!BruceNYC NY
