Reviews for the Zopo P5000
Model: Zopo, which is one of the Chinese smartphone manufacturers, is back with the recently launched Zopo P5000 and it could be their best phone to date. It is the latest flagship phone which comes with all the hardware features that we have come to expect from top of the range phones of today, plus a few nice features that actually push the P5000 in front of certain other phones on the market. The P5000 is easily the best looking Zopo phone they have released so far with the Zopo name stamp on the back. It also has the best materials, best build quality and actually features top-end hardware. The P5000 is offered in red and black variants. In the past, Zopo has struggled to keep up with smartphone trends, but the Zopo P5000 is bang right up to date with a 5.99-inch HD+ 18:9 Full-Screen display. This is pretty big news for Zopo, but the hardware highlights do not end there. The display panel found on Zopo’s latest mid-ranger is protected by 2.5D glass. As the Zopo P5000 has a full-display screen and a 85% screen coverage up front, the fingerprint scanner has had to be moved to the rear of the phone just below the dual camera lens. The fingerprint scanner lens is a little smaller than some brands, but so far it has proven to be fast and accurate.
Above that full-display screen, user will find a 16 megapixel Samsung SP3 f2.0 camera with soft LED flash. The rear has dual lens camera is made up of a 13 megapixel and 5 megapixel Sony IMX258 f2.0 sensor and beneath the attractive metal body is a huge 5000 mAh battery. With a huge battery, the P5000 is slightly thicker than similar metal bodied phones, but it supports fast charging. Less time on charge is more important to most users than the physical size of the phones. The stock Android installation runs smoothly thanks to 4 GB Samsung DDR3 RAM and Mediatek Helio P10 1.5Ghz octa-core chipset, not the most modern processor but it is powerful enough for most uses and supports most common LTE networks too. Other details include 64 GB Samsung internal memory, space for a micro SD card and dual nano SIM slots. Zopo has shipped the P5000 with a largely stock installation of Android 7.0 and the phone comes with Google Services and Google Store all installed and working as they should out of the box. Sticking with modern trends, the P5000 uses a Type C USB 2.0 for charging and data transfer, which might not be as desirable as a faster connection but at least it is more future-proof than a standard USB port.
