Zopo ZP980 review

Today I am here with the best option to Canvas HD and other such phones in the same price bracket. For a long time many of you were looking for a substitute / alternative of Canvas HD. Friends the wait seems to be over now. Now its time to say good-bye to our beloved Canvas HD and move to Zopo ZP980. It comes in two memory versions 4GB and 16 GB. Many specifications/features are much much better than Canvas HD. Build quality and design are also far better than Canvas HD.

Price   12000 INR / 15999 INR

      Regarding your query about Zopo mobiles, I must say that its a well known Chinese company. Also Micromax products are purely Chinese. So I don't mind purchasing Chinese products if they provide warranty and services like other companies (and they do provide).

      Following are their Indian contact numbers for any query :

      Once the androidzguru is operational in India (which is expected very soon) there will be no problem of availability and services.
