ZOPO ZP500 also named ZOPO Libero, it is an entry-class Android phone with acceptable specs. It has no problem on most task, even if some big 3D games. As an low price phone, price is the most important weapon, you only need cost RMB999 to get this smartphone, about $159. Of course, if you are an international buyer, maybe will pay more on it.

ZOPO ZP500 has a 4-inch QHD screen, with 480*854 pixel display resolution, DPI 240*240. Although the screen is not as good as AMOLED screen, it is vivid, almost close to iPhone 4S retina display (3.5 inch, 640*960 pixel). ZOPO ZP500 has a slim body, only 9.9mm thickness, weight 119g (with battery). The new smartphone powered MTK MT6575 1GHz cortex-A9 processor, with PowerVR SGX531 GPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB ROM.

ZP500 has a 1300mAh battery, as official description, the longest standby time is almost 5 days. I think it just stay there without any call or operation.  As our testing, the battery just last about 24 hours to 36 hours at normal using.

ZOPO ZP500 installed original Android 4.0.3 OS, but the factory has not announced when it can upgrade to the latest Android Jelly Bean, maybe in next a few months.
