Suggested March 2024 Hands On With The $160 Zopo Zp820

There have been a few different smartphone trends out of China this year. There has been the super slim phone trend, quad-core trend, big screen trend and now there is a new category of low-cost, high-specification phones making waves.

It all kicked off with the Xiaomi Hongmi, a $130 smartphone which took China by storm, but for international customers it was a no go due to lack of proper 3G support and high-reseller prices.

Thankfully Chinese phone companies are taking a serious look at the needs of international customers and at least a few like ZOPO have taken steps to launch an affordable, quality device.

Zopo ZP820 specification

Rather than designing a whole new phone, which might suffer manufacturing delays and hike up retail prices, ZOPO have taken their ZP810 model and run it through the refresh machine. The result is a phone which offers similar hardware as more costly phones but costs just a fraction of the price!

Starting at the screen the ZP820 has a 5-inch IPS qHD display, a both that is a 4.9 mega-pixel front camera, speaker and LED notification light. Below there are your 3 typical capacitive navigation buttons featuring LED backlights.

The black model we tried had a glossy removable rear panel, 8 mega-pixel main camera, LED flash and speaker grill located towards the bottom right hand corner.

Removing the case you are greeted with a removable 2000mAh battery, space for 2 x SIM cards and a 64GB SD card.

Getting to the guts of the phone Zopo’s engineers have ditched the older 1.2Ghz quad-core MT6589 processor in favour for the more powerful and more energy-efficient 1.3Ghz quad-core MT6582 chipset. There is also 1GB RAM, 4GB memory and support for GSM and WCDMA networks.

Zopo ZP820 ROM

Zopo have refreshed their ROM for 2014. The ZP820 gets Android 4.2.2 with a new user interface that resembles Xiaomi’s MIUI. The application icons and some of the menus are similar to those found in MIUI V5, but as far as functionality goes it works just like a phone would running a stock Android install.

With very little in the way of customisation going on with the ROM we failed to come across any bugs in the system. Everything ran as it should, and there were no nasty surprises.

As ZOPO are really pushing their phones to international markets they have also taken the time to pre-install some of the more popular apps. Youtube, Google Drive, Skype, Google Talk, Navigation and WhatsApp are already in the phone so you can just power it up and get going.

Zopo ZP820 performance

With a 1.3Ghz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM and 5-inch qHD display we didn’t expect the ZP820 to be a slow phone but running Antutu version 4.1 was an eye-opening experience!

The budget friendly Zopo really shocked us with an Antutu result of 17,290! In comparison the JiaYu G5 which we are testing with a 1.5Ghz quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM and 4.5-inch 720p HD display scores only 16,034!

Zopo ZP820, the Official Zopo website, have been kind enough to lend us the ZP820 for a few days so we can really put it through it’s paces and report our findings here. We’ve played around with most of the features on the phone from the gaming performance to the camera and overall we have been impressed.

For a phone costing just $159.99 the Zopo ZP820 is a great bargain and one we expect to see in plenty of stockings this Christmas.

Exclusive Thl T100S Vs Zopo Zp998: Hands On Comparison!

As both the THL T100S and it’s rival, the Zopo ZP998 are two of the most desirable flagship, 8-core Chinese phones of the moment we have decided to do the reviews of both model in a parts, part 1 being a photo comparison of both model!

THL T100S vs Zopo ZP998 hands on comparison

Full reviews of both phones are in the works but as we just couldn’t wait to post details of each of these phones we decided to take a few hands on photos to compare the design of each phone.

Although under the skin the Zopo ZP998 and THL T100S both have the same 1.7Ghz MT6592 octa-core processor, 2GB RAM and both have the latest features, NFC, MHL, OTG, FHD display etc, both phones are very different in design and will likely suit different types of people.

While the Zopo has a larger display the overall dimensions of each phone aren’t too far from each other. The Zopo ZP998 dimensions are 151.4mm x 76.1 x 9.1mm while the THL T100S is 144.3 x 70.4 x 8.4mm. Only 5.7mm difference in width yet the THL losses .5-inch of screen real estate.

In the hand both phones feel comfortable and well made with no creeks or flexing. Textured rear panels are incorporated on both model with the Zopo getting a faux leather look and the THL a rubberised finish.

Zopo also allow customers to access the rear of the phone on the ZP998 also where you can also find dual-SIM slots, SD card and slightly larger 2400mAh battery.

Both phones feature 3D printed antennas (easy to see on the Zopo) and the NFC chip is easily seen on the removable rear panel.

THL T100S Hands on tour

Touring around the THL T100S we can see that THL’s designers have been heavily influenced by the Xiaomi Mi3 and current Sony Xperia models.

The front is taken up by the 5-inch 1080 panel, with 3 backlit touch buttons on the chin and front facing 13 mega-pixel front camera located at the top close to the proximity sensors and speaker.

On the rear we can see where most of the Xiaomi Mi3 influence is and we can also seen the recently redesigned THL logo. Another 13 mega-pixel shooter with F2.0 aperture sits in the top left-hand corner with LED flash positioned just below it there is an external speaker towards the base.

The base of the THL Tl00S features nothing but a small area to pull the rear panel off.

A 3.5mm headphone jack, and micro USB are located in the top.

The only physical controls on the flagship THL are the power button on the right side and volume rocker on the left.

The design of the THL T100S makes for a refreshing change when compared to other phones, and the rubberised rear makes it easy to hold the phone comfortably with one hand without fear of loosing grip.

Thought the THL is narrower than the Zopo, its sharp edges and odd profile actually make it less comfortable to hold. The build quality also doesn’t feel quite as good on the THL when compared to the Zopo.

Zopo ZP998 hands on tour

There is nothing surprising about the Zopo ZP998 which looks like a larger version of the previous generation Zopo ZP980 only with a larger display and narrower bezels.

At 5.5-inch you might think the Zopo would be a bit of a handful, but in actual fact it is very comfortable to hold and feels better (in my hand) than the smaller THL T100S. The overall proportions of the Zopo also look better too with short stumpy top and lower sections similar to the Galaxy Note 3.

Speaking of the top and lower sections, 3 back lit touch buttons sit on the chin while a 5 megapixel front camera, proximity sensor and speaker live at the top.

The leather print finish on the rear of the Zopo looks good, feels nice and adds good grip. The rear also has a large external speaker, Zopo logo and a 14 mega-pixel rear camera and LED flash located in the top center.

There are more physical controls on the Zopo than the T100S, with a volume rocker on the left, power button on the right and also a camera shut ton button lower down on the left hand side. A 3.5mm headphone jack is found in the more traditional position at the top of the ZP998 while the micro USB is on the base.

It might not be as risky or exciting as the THL T100S, but the Zopo ZP998 looks and feels better in the hand, and offers a larger display with only a slightly wider body.

The Zopo ZP988 we have on test is a pre-production sample, but the quality of the materials and build is good and a marked improvement over previous Zopo phones.

Zopo ZP998 and THL T100S reviews coming soon!

With Christmas tomorrow we won’t begin writing up our reviews until after the holidays, but be sure we will be playing around with each phone over the holiday time and will be bringing you more updates as we can.

From our first hands on with both phone which do you prefer? The Zopo ZP998 or the THL T100S?

Thanks to Antelife for sending the THL T100S and Zopo Shop for arraigning the ZP998 test phone.

Htc Desire 628 Hands On Overview, Specifications And Competition

HTC Desire 628 Specifications

[table id=540 /]

HTC Desire 628 Photo Gallery HTC Desire 628 Physical Overview

While the HTC 10 comes with a metal build, the Desire 628 is a colourful little phone. It comes with a high quality plastic shell that looks peppy with its dual tone colour profiles. HTC is aiming at the young smartphone users out there who want playful phones – phones that look good but do not give off a serious look like the other phones out there in its range.

The backside of the Desire 628 is quite bare, with only the HTC logo, the camera and LED flash being present. You will also find the secondary mic to the right of the camera module, which should help in noise cancellation.

Coming back to the front side of the phone, you will find the first BoomSound stereo speaker in the middle. To its left, you will find the 5 MP front camera. Just above the display, HTC has placed the ambient light sensor for intelligent light adjustments.

The volume rocker and the power button reside on the right side of the Desire 628.

On the left side of the phone, the two SIM card slots and the microSD card slots are present. All the three slots come with a single cover, so you will have to be extra careful to not break it.

On the bottom, you will find the microUSB charging port for data syncing and charging.

The top of the phone houses the 3.5 mm audio jack.

HTC Desire 628 User Interface

The HTC Desire 628 comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, with work underway on the Marshmallow update. It comes with Sense UI on top, with many customization options and additions to the base Android layer. HTC has been working hard to make Sense UI lean and it helps a lot on devices like the Desire 628.

While previous versions of Sense UI were heavy and known to bring even flagships to a crawl, the Sense UI on Desire 628 doesn’t try to do too much. Still, the Sense launcher comes with different modes to display a bunch of apps smartly categorized by it. You also get the ability to change themes and download new ones from the Theme Store.

HTC Desire 628 Display Overview

The Desire 628 comes with a 5 inch IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. This gives you a pixel density of ~294 PPI, which is a little less by today’s standards. While the 5 inch screen size is a sweet spot for many, the screen resolution is a bit of a let down, even after considering the phone’s price. That being said, the colour reproduction is good and visibility levels are good enough as well.

HTC Desire 628 Camera Overview

The front comes with a 5 MP camera with a 75° wide angle lens for better selfies and video calling experience. Live makeup, Selfie timer, Voice Selfie are some of the software additions to the front camera.


The HTC Desire 628 will have tough competition in its price range. You can get the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Moto G Turbo, Moto G4 Plus, Moto X Play and Lenovo Vibe P1. Other notable mentions include the LeEco Le 1S and the Samsung Galaxy J5.

Price and Availability Conclusion

HTC is trying to win back some of its lost fans with its new phones today. The Desire 628 aims at the young crowd – the college going users, especially – with its dual-tone color profiles. However, it has some serious competition from other Android OEMs in its price range. Over the next few days and weeks, we look forward to testing the HTC Desire 628 and find out if it is worth its price.

This Is The Oneplus 2 (Unboxing And Hands

This is the OnePlus 2 (unboxing and hands-on)

The second in a line of OnePlus smartphones is here, just aching to have its place in the sun alongside the top-tier devices from the world’s top manufacturers. The OnePlus 2, says the company, is a “flagship killer”. We’ll see about that once the device is put through our review trials. For now we’re having a peek at the basics. This device has just arrived at SlashGear headquarters in its final form. Final software and final hardware – and a camera we’ll be battling against the top smartphone cameras in the field. Both in the dark and in the light.

Inside the box you’ll find the device, a white and red wall charger, and a spun-up rubbery USB plug for charging and connecting to your computer. This device’s USB is a USB 2.0 Type-C, which means you’re going to be able to plug it in either way, but you’re going to need this specific kind of cord to plug in, sync, and power up.

The display up front of the OnePlus 2 is a 5.5-inch LTPS LCD with 1080 x 1920 pixels, coming in for a 401 pixels-per-inch density. That’s not quite as sharp as some of the other top-tier smartphones on the market today, but we’re going to go ahead and guess that it’ll mean a longer battery life than the competition.

This display is sharp and extremely bright. While we’re hesitant to say it’s the brightest display on the market, it’ll make for some reasonable outdoor viewing – albeit a short amount once the high-blasting LCD hits the battery.

Up front is Corning Gorilla Glass 4, the newest in the brand’s scratch-resistant reinforced glass for mobile devices. You’ll also find an extremely thin (nearly invisible) screen protector applied to this device right out of the box.

On the right side you’ll find two buttons – one for power and locking the device, the other a volume rocker. Both are made of metal, as is the rim of this device. Glass up front and metal around the rim make for a premium feel for the OnePlus 2, while a “sandstone black” textured back cover makes you feel like you’ve really got something unique in your hand.

On the left is a switch. The first thing this switch does is flip between standard mode and “No interruptions” mode – and at the moment we can’t think of a better use for a hardware switch than that.

The back cover for this device is removable, revealing a pull-out tray with room for 2x SIM cards. That’s it. No removable battery this time.

Up front you’ll find a single home button and two capacitive buttons, all of which can be turned off in the device’s software. The left and right buttons work with “back” and multitasking abilities and can be switched in the device’s settings drawer.

The home button also functions as a fingerprint scanner. Our (relatively limited) experience with the scanner so far suggests a high-functioning well-implemented scanner – but we’ll see after extended use.

Unlike a Samsung smartphone, this home button is not loose in its casing. This button does not have a physical press-down action, instead opting for capacitive tap action instead.

This home button as well as the buttons around it have several different tap and hold abilities, all of which are set by the user. For example you’re able to set the device so that a double-tap to the home button brings up the device’s camera app. A single button hold – something like “Force Touch”, as Apple would call it – can also activate commands.

The left and right buttons have a dim blue light to them – this light can be switched or turned off entirely, just as the buttons as a whole can be switched to on-screen controls in the device’s standard settings drawer.

Up front you’ve got a 5-megapixel camera and a single speaker for calls, while all media audio is handled by a speaker or speakers facing downward, near the device’s USB port.

Also at the back of the device is a 13-megapixel camera capable of capturing 4128 x 3096 pixels photos with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a dual-LED flash. This device has laser autofocus not unlike the LG G4 and LG G3.

This is just the beginning. Stick around our OnePlus tag portal as well as our big Android hub as we begin to test the OnePlus 2’s camera, battery, software, and everything in-between. Below you’ll find a number of benchmarks run on this device – let us know if you’d like to see more, and which tests you’d like us to run!

Oppo N1 Mini Unboxing, Hands on Review, Price, Camera, Features, Comparison with N1 and Overview[Review]

Design, Build and Display

As you can observe, the design is identical to Oppo N1, but the Mini variant is easily manageable, more pocket friendly and light in weight, without making any compromises. The swivel camera is nicely built and smooth in operations. Oppo has paid attention to minute details and we really like the build quality on the device. You can also choose from light blue, lemon yellow (will arrive later) and White variants. Speaker Grill, Micro USB and Audio jack are all present at the bottom.

Processor and RAM

Instead of Snapdragon 600, the mini variant employs 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400 cortex A7 processor with Adreno 305 GPU, similar to what we saw in HTC Desire 816. The processor is in no way a slouch but is shadowed by availability of Snapdragon 800 in phones like Nexus 5, Gionee Elife E7 and Xiaomi Mi3 for same or lesser price.

Camera and Internal Storage

The 13 MP swivel camera is indeed better than what we saw on Oppo N1. The 13 MP sensor can also shoot 24 MP shots, a software trickery it borrows from Oppo Find 7 & 7a. We don’t see ourselves using it much on day to day basis but it’s another cool feature to have. The camera app is standard Color OS app same as that in Oppo N1. It definitely challenges the HTC Desire 816 camera which is also pretty good.

Internal storage is 16 GB and unfortunately this is not expandable. This is another drawback at this price point as 16 GB runs out quite fast and this doesn’t make it an ideal device for heavy users.

User Interface and Battery

User interface is color OS on top of Android 4.3 jelly bean. It’s not android Kitkat and you won’t get optional ART runtime, but it still comes with FSTRIM for better storage management. On user end, the software is heavily customized with color ROM offering several options, but whether or not you like it will be depended on your taste.

Oppo N1 Mini Photo Gallery

Conclusion and Price

Oppo N1 Mini is a well built decent smartphone which successfully transfers Oppo N1 experience to a not so mini 5 inch variant, but it is not for everyone. The price isn’t very aggressive but even with presence of Nexus 5 and Elife E7 in the vicinity, Oppo N1 Mini has a build that will tempt you to prefer it over others. A slightly better display and expandable storage or perhaps a lower price tag would have made the device more attractive. It will be available for 26,990 initially starting from today.

Healthtap Puts Remote Healthcare In The Hands Of Consumers

Covid-19 brought a new spotlight to telehealth. The virus caused fears and restrictions that led to a drastic reduction in the number of people receiving care. Remote healthcare services were forced to take over.

Remote healthcare isn’t going away, even though the worst days of the pandemic may be over.

Similar to remote work, being able to offer safe and accessible healthcare without having to be present will continue to be an integral part of the healthcare industry moving forward.

HealthTap is one company that continues to champion telehealth, pandemic or otherwise. HealthTap offers a tech-forward, remote-friendly healthcare service. It aims to continue offering affordable and better healthcare through the expanding remote healthcare channel.

How HealthTap Puts Healthcare in The Hands of Consumers

HealthTap was founded in 2010 and has been working towards this goal for more than a decade.

Its tech-based solutions, which are industry leaders in their field, are continuously pushing the company towards its goal of making primary care available to everyone in America — regardless of whether they have insurance.

This innovative brand of remote healthcare is changing the status quo in many ways and leading the way to a more healthy, telehealth-friendly future.

A Healthcare Reset: Same Healthcare — Different Approach

HealthTap’s unique approach to solving the problem is what sets it apart from other healthcare options.

Similar companies aim to improve the healthcare system. The solution for the HealthTap team was to start from a consumer-centric perspective and back up.

With this in mind, founders asked key questions.

What are consumers looking for?

What are patients looking to find?

Do they not have access to the right services? The current system is full of inefficiencies and costs that have been discovered throughout the process. Patients seek simple and straight answers to their most difficult health problems. Inefficiencies are often discovered.

Too often, insurance companies influence the selection of doctors, procedures, and medications. Patients are often restricted by geographical limitations, which can make it difficult to find the right doctor for them.

No matter what the circumstance, third-party entities that have other goals or objectives should not make such personal, important decisions.

Comprehensive Remote Healthcare: HealthTap’s End to End Experience

HealthTap’s focus on virtual primary healthcare is one of its strengths.

The company worked hard to create a network that treats each patient as a human being and not as a collection of symptoms.

Each appointment can be made by the same doctor. This helps them build trust over time.

HealthTap offers this personal touch and a strong set of tech tools to help you keep your costs down and make it easy for you to access services around the clock.

The AI asks members questions and provides a digital interview. HealthTap’s system uses this to triage each patient. It classifies their issues and assigns a level of urgency. For example, a sore thumb is not as urgent as a sore knee.

The company then uses this information to schedule a virtual consultation with a physician. You can use a variety of remote healthcare communication channels to accomplish this. Patients can contact providers via text, audio, or a combination of audio and video. Video is recommended, however, for maximum effectiveness.

Virtual communication allows patients and doctors to communicate with each other, allowing them to discuss their symptoms. As the patient moves from one end of the telehealth experience to the next, doctors can also provide treatment plans.

Accessibility: Anytime, Anywhere Treatment

HealthTap’s remote health services are different than traditional healthcare in that they can be accessed at any hour of the day.

It’s not just convenient to have 24/7 care. It’s essential.

No matter what time structure man has created, illness can occur. Traditional healthcare services are available from 9-5 Monday through Friday. This is unfortunately true during the busiest hours of any working business.

This makes it difficult for individuals to make a choice between their health and their school and work responsibilities. They must choose from overloaded, expensive after-hours urgent care centers or emergency rooms if they are unable to do so.

HealthTap offers consumers an unprecedented level of control, allowing them to access healthcare solutions according to their schedule.

Low Costs: Efficiency is the key to affordability

Healthcare is costly. It’s not a secret. This problem has been increasing for many years. The recent pandemic only made matters worse. In fact, healthcare costs increased by 10% in 2023, the year that began the crisis.

HealthTap’s telehealth service is a quality alternative to HealthTap, but it’s still expensive.

HealthTap’s tech-focused format makes quality alternatives possible. The AI and other tech elements of HealthTap automate many manual and routine healthcare-related tasks. Both members and doctors benefit from this, as it saves time and reduces the amount of rigmarole.

The Healthcare Bells and Whistles

This innovative approach to healthcare does not just eliminate many of the costs and inconveniences associated with traditional healthcare. Digitally-driven Telehealth has opened up new avenues for innovation.

HealthTap’s software, for example, has been streamlined to personalize the presentation and organization of personal data. All information, including notes from virtual doctor consultations and prescribed treatment plans, is securely stored in one location.

This information can be accessed from any digital device, at any hour of the day or night, due to its digital nature.

Privacy Protection for Sensitive Digital Data

HealthTap can overcome this concern. HealthTap has invested more than a decade in its network.

The development team didn’t rush to set up a telehealth infrastructure. This is often the case with many other providers who switched to this format during the pandemic.

HealthTap was already well-established before the crisis. Their tech tools are therefore already reliable and efficient. This allows R&D to concentrate on other priorities such as expanding the company’s network of board-certified healthcare professionals.

Board-certified healthcare professionals are available to answer any call. Patients can also reach a professional from anywhere within the HealthTap network.

Telehealth is here to stay. It can be daunting to choose the right remote healthcare provider. Consumers should look into options such as HealthTap which provides targeted tech tools and high-quality network doctors and safe, affordable, and accessible healthcare solutions.
