Summary: ZP980+ is not dual standby. Once on a call the other sim card is practically dead until the call ends. It's dual standby is only when both sim cards are not on a call. The micro sim card( sim 1) goes off and comes with an error message : "SIM CARD 1 NOT DETECTED". You have to remove battery and sim and re-insert for the sim card to be detected again. Zopo Engineers need to go back to the drawing board.
Generally good phone, except for that stupid start-up tune

Summary: I've had this phone for about a year. I bought it in Singapore for less than it retails for in the US, but I would say that overall, I'm satisfied with the phone. I needed an unlocked dual-sim phone, so that's what I got. I've owned iPhones and Samsungs and LGs. The Zopo can play in that league. The pictures it takes are inferior to my Samsung S4 but it's just as fast. On the down side, the phone has lately been restarting if I receive a call or open the camera app.
Summary: This phone is large and has a very nice sharp screen that I wanted to try and of course a second SIM set for travellers. What I don't like is the very low sound volume and the poor pick up of GPS signals. Battery life isn't very good either as the second battery is really a replacement. Camera is modest quality.
Summary: OK, I've had Chinese Star phones for years, and they have been good solid reliable phones, so I have nothing against the lesser know handsets. However, this one is total pants. Good points (in the interests of balance) Looks nice Good battery life Dual sim (I travel a lot) Good screen with armoured glass (works well too) Plays films well Sound OK Great Camera Bad points: Woeful GPS - terrible lock on, and rubbish retention (Yes I have followed the advice and it still...
Summary: This is my second Zopo mobile, the first one being an older model which I sold on the buy the newer C2. One of my daughters also owns a C2/ZP980. Like the earlier Zopo I haven't been disappointed. Works flawlessly and quickly. Extremely fast and efficient dispatch from the Amazon seller too. Great camera. Highly recommended and great value for money. Good quality build.
Summary: Bargain! Don't be put off by the non familiar brand this phone is very good value for money. Only gripe is the battery runs down a bit quick but no quicker than other phones I've had in the past. I highly recommend this phone. Its top zopo!
