Zopo zp200, as China’s first glasses-free 3D mobile phone, has successfully catches a lot of attentions. After life with zp200 for a couple of days, I gonna write a detail reviews, hoping can help those who are would like to have one.
The first is really distinguishes it, with a big bright 4.3-inch sharp ASV 3D screen, resolution 540×960.(iphone4 640×960). Due to 3D effect can’t present by picture or video, we only take zp200 to compare with other well know models. I can’t tell the difference between Zp200 and Evo 3D, the resolution is higher then LG P920, screen size bigger then Sharp SH8158U. Generally speaking, the 3D experience on zp200 is good, we can set 3D wallpaper and enjoy 3d movie, games. but it is a pity that it do not support 3d camera. further more, with the inclusion of Sharp’s AVS display, prospective own will be treated to an incredibly bright and intensely saturated screen. Even when viewing it outdoor in direct sunlight. we had no difficulty discerning the contents or even camera interface.
Touring the body, the device shell is made by plastic. The volume keys are on the left side, while the headphone socket and power button are both found on the top. On the Right edge there’s the HDMI, Micro-USB port.What surprise me is zp200 come with HDMI port, it is not much model support this function in this nice price, with this HDMI output, we can easily connect zp200 to TV, Projector, and enjoy photos, videos in a larger visual. But we do not find camera button on the body.
The phone arrives with 4GB of memory, with around 3GB of this accessible to the user. ZP200 runs on the latest MTK6575 processor and team up with 1GB of RAM, 1GHZ, and dual core. And support TF card expand max to 32 GB. Beside this, the chip is build under ARM V7 instruction set, thanks to this, We can watch online video on YouTube, Smoothly, even HQ movie. Safari internet experience is good too; the picture is just there before I open the website. This device runs on Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread, ZOPO said will available to update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the near feature thanks to zp200’s excellent hardware configuration. However, when we test the data by Z-Device, it can only tell 512 RAM due to Android2.3 only recognize max 512MB for MTK6575 processor. We sure Android4.0 will solve this issue.
ZOPO zp200 keep dual sim dual standby, Sim 1 support 3G WCDMA NETWORK. It means we can have 2 difference numbers available at the same time, support WCDMA+GSM, or GSM+GSM. The frequency 2G:GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, it is quadband GSM phones that work EVERYWHERE in the world – no research required. But for 3G WCDMA: only HSPDA 2100 MHz. Further more, this phone also come with WiFi and WiFi Hotspot functionality, Synchronization via Exchange ActiveSync, Bluetooth, GPS. We have detail test for GPS position later.
We get high quality picture and video easily and share it to Facebook, twitter, or YouTube, thanks to a Sony 8.0 megapixel backside camera with auto-focus, flashing. it also support normal function like Multi angle shooting, ISO, exposure, compensation, metering mode and so on. in next article we will show more photos.
Now let’s talk about user interface, the default UI is HTC sense. We can also install third party skin as well, this zp200 re-installed DAINXIN, and we have many optional on launcher. The operator is no big difference to original android os. I personally like the “GO Launcher EX”, we can delete the the app that we do not like directly by cancel the icon, very friendly.

In the package, zp200 come with only one battery 1250mh. As for a 4.3-inch large screen phone, the capacity is
a little small. As the same as iphone and Htc owners, we need to go home every night to charge our phone. One good thing is we can purchase an external case cover battery for zopo zp200.
