a buying Android phone help!

by angelashu / October 15, 2013 5:28 PM PDT

Hi guys, i am going to buy a new smartphone, (my old htc chacha sucks, the battery even wont last for one hour!) but there are so many smartphones ads out there and i am totally confused which one to go for. I have searched a lot on the internet these days, and found this newly coming out ZOPO phone, however, i am not good at techie stuff, so i dont understand the specs, have anyone here heard of this brand anyway? or anyone here can give a help to check the specs for me? really really thinks! !

my demand is simple, just possesses the same functions of my tablet!

oh, here is the phone i found on amazon, seems to be a new brand, i asked once on google+ and someone said it's a highly featured phone, really?

This is just one of the many Chinese brands. Since they sell only 19 of these, I'm rather sure you won't find anyone here who has experience with it.
Are you sure that shop offers a good service, warranty, return and repair policy?

In addition to what Kees mentioned

Another potential issue is a lack of customer support on non-branded handsets by the cellular carrier for potential technical issues.

Never heard of them

I'd personally stay clear of them....stick with mainstream brands like Samsung, HTC, LG, Apple, etc...

With off brands your warranty or even support would be limited if it exists.

For me personally I like to at least try out the phone before I commit to it, with brands like these, is there a local dealer that carries them that you can check out?

Many things to consider if I were in your shoes.

Good luck!

pretty good item

ZOPO ZP980 is pretty good. If you want to know how its quality is, you can search it on Ali Express, eBay, Amazon, or some online stores like tinytrade, where you can read some custom reviews, which will tell you whether it is worth to buy. Hope this will help you!
