Zopo C3 Review

zopo c3 3After months of teasers, the Zopo C3 is finally out. So how does this fair with its older brother the C2 and C2 elite. Read more to find out if this model holds out on its own or just merely a minor update of what has been a very popular phone from Zopo.

If you don’t mind, the model we reviewed is a pink version, hehe, but it still looks nice.
The new C3 Has really beefed up:

MT6589T Quad Core @ 1.5 Ghz (turbo version)
FHD or 1080p Display @ 1920 x 1080p (441 ppi)
1 GB DDR3 RAM and a 16 GB ROM for internal Storage
Runs Android 4.2.1 Jellybean with multilingual support

GAMES TESTS

GAMES TESTS AND ANTUTU BENCHMARKS

In terms of performance, the Zopo C3 performs on par with the Zopo C2 Platinum and the Elite (both are powered with MT6589T Processors)

The Zopo C3, Still Sports the PowerVR SGX544 MP4 GPU, capable of running the latest 3G games, coupled that with the MT6589T, then what you get is one of the most affordable smartphone capable of heavy gaming and multitasking. Performance in gaming is also on par with the Zopo C2 Platinum or Elite, you can check out the games test above

OTG SUPPORT

What is OTG Support? It stands for USB-On-GO, this means that you can basically connect an external device to your phone like a mouse, external controllers etc…

2 models: pink and a white model

CONCLUSIONS

With all the hype, unfortunately we cannot say the phone is indeed perfect. If that were the case, then it wouldn’t be called a review is it? Hehe, all things aside, here are my list of what could have been better. Don’t hold your breath, because it will be a quick one

  • It seems very little has change from the previous zopo c2 and c2 elite or platinum
  • Battery still remains average, at 2000mAh heavy users like me, you constantly need to charge
  • Real world performance of the turbo version isn’t very noticeable
  • NO 4G or LTE Support, Bummer right, it may be a deal breaker for some looking for a super fast internet connection

Verdict: Gets 7 out of 10 Stars, Why? Because it practically performs the same with Zopo C2 Platinum, you can either get this model or the C2 Platinum. Although the phone performs admirably well, because very little has change from its previous models, theirs nothing new or unique about it. The Zopo C2 X7 Youth, for its price range is still a good contender. So you can choose which phones fits your need and budget. Finally, the phone has overall good quality, excellent display, and a host of unbelievable features for its price. For new buyers, a definite must buy, but for Late Owners of the Zopo C2 Platinum or the X7 Youth (its older brother), may find little change from the C3
