Design & Build Quality

The Speed 7 Plus has a Unibody design. What basically means is that the phone body manufactured and constructed in a process that combines plastic injection molding process with metal made parts. When combining both materials, product achieves higher strength / stiffness and it also looks nicer like a multi layer “sandwich” type arrangement.

System

The phone currently runes the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and came with a relatively clean ROM with few pre installed Apps such as twitter, Facebook etc. System performance was good including user experience. With 3GB RAM everything worked very smooth. According to CPU-Z actually free remaining memory, without loading extra Apps in the background that consume resources was 1.5 GB of RAM.

Getting into main navigation keys. The phone uses virtual navigation keys for all basic functions such as: Back, Home, Settings. It’s something users need to get used to, But once you get used to it it’s simple and intuitive.

Hardware info & Benchmarks

AnTuTU Benchmark ranking where reasonable, with score of 29863. Not higher as Umi eMax or the Lenovo K3 Note devices with higher results ranging between 40,000-46,000. Another point worth mentioning is that In normal operation, surface area near 13MP camera gets hot. Its not too high, But it does heat up and worth mentioning. The solution is Buying a TPU Plastic Case should solve this issue.

Other Features:

Back 13MP Camera: Produced Good photography results, especially in optimal light conditions. In extreme low light condition photo tend to get grainy.

Other Impressions:

  1. Touch Screen: Very responsive, Bright and sharp Screen.
  2. GPS: Worked out of the box. There wasn’t any need to tweak a GPS with 3rd Apps.

 

Testing Apps:

  1. Walk Navigation with Here Maps (Offline Mode).
  2. GPS Test Application: Max Accuracy : 7 – 13 feet.

  • Battery work time: With moderate none continuous usage that includes : WiFi , Instant messaging, phone worked about 5 hours.
  • Speaker: Sound Quality was good, but I personally think audio levels could be higher.

 

Final words

The ZOPO Speed 7 is a very good, well designed phone. General experience was excellent. Just as personal suggestion, It could be nicer if company future models will have a Sony or Samsung sensors, instead of OV (OmniVision). That said, Both Speed 7 models are available in ZOPO official website  Here.

PROS

  • Good Build Design.
  • Detectable Battery.
  • Good Battery Working time (5-6 hours depending on type of usage).
  • LED Notification Support.

  • Touch Screen : Very Responsive, Sharp and bright Touch Screen.
