It's a problem that affects (or affected according to someone) only the phones based on MT6573, looks like even the cheapest phones based on MSM7x27[t] aren't hit by the problem.

So i think will be the same for the HTC (which has a better cpu core but, more or less, the same baseband)

As any other phone the U960 is not perfect and has some things that could be better.

On the HW side there is not much to say.

The screen is made of glass, is sensitive and well contrasted, but could be a bit brighter for better readability in the direct sunlight.

The screen lacks also any high tech antifigerptint treatment/coating.

The camera is not crap as in most dual sim, but don't expect a Nikon.

The rest is on par if not better than a middle class single sim smartphone.

Very good sensitivity, good battery life, good audio, good CPU performances.



Speaking about SW:

The original ROMs weren't rock solid, and the original baseband SW for SIM1 had some incompatibility with certain SIMs.

All this is SOLVED thanks to our efforts.

There are still some minor glitches:

The received calls and SMS may be displayed with or w/o the international prefix

The USSD replies aren't working on SIM 1

The incoming SMS lacking a caller number are simply ignored by the default SMS client, an alternate SMS client fix this (fully on sim 2 and partially on sim 1)

The dual SIM management, like on the XT532, is relatively basic and is handled better on cheap clones.

Really not much for a single representative of his class, which is still in his infancy.

Thanks Solutor for the detailed response, I wish you could get your hand on a T328w and give it the same treatment.

I a debating switching phones. Now have a gsmaart 1345. Had to send it back twice.. Battery life and processor speed are way below expectations. Before this I had a HTC Desire (first version).

Choice between: Zope ZP100, Lenovo A750 and ZTE U960.
The Zope ZP100 looks nice and seems to have a good screen, but is small brand.
The A 750 is the uglier of the bunch, but seems to perform.
The ZTE has dual active, but is expensive.

The first two seem to have a chipset build for dual sim. Not sure about the third.

This video clearly has the lenovo as a speed winner.
S5PC110 VS MSM8255 VS OMAP3630 VS MT6575 ?? - ?? - ???? - ????

Any recoomendations. Someone has tried the 3 already?

The T328W review:

双卡双待,新一代"渴望"!HTC*T328w首发评测 - 安卓评测中心

It's in Chinese, had a hard time reading it using a translator.
Looks like a decent phone.

It didn't answer the anti smudge anti scratch question though, something like the Corning Glass or the generic glass protection used for the Galaxy Nexus, but I'm guessing it doesn't have such protection.

Can someone add the Antutu Benchmark or the new Lenovo A750 and ZTE U960 please?

Clock for clock, the MSM8255 is clearly better albeit the small margin, I guess the ICS kernel and ROM are partially contributing to the close numbers.

How about the Battery life score? The Chinese review doesn't provide data for the T328W.
I guess we would have to wait for someone to get and do the test.

From what I can see that antutu benchmark is not a great tool to understand the differences between cpus. That said your guess is surely correct, ICS and the experience of HTC have surely a part on the good results shown by the HTC wind.

That part is surely harder to bencmark, usually most of the battery juice is eaten by the 3G part.

A different provider or a different baseband firmware can do more difference than an overclocked CPU.

My first android phone ( a milestone 1) was used to last less than 5 hours using vodafone, and more than 24h using Three.

That difference was almost deleted with the updated firmwares.


I guess the wind smarphone will have, more or less, the same battery life than the ZTE, more or less the same baseband, slightly larger battery, less efficient CPU, but smaller screen

Confused zopo zp 100

hiieee friends, please help me, i am buying zopo zp100 online from merimobile.com website as i find it suitable for me. but there is a doubt in my mind. as it is a Chinese dual sim mobile although a branded but i m confused whether it will work in India or not and it also has just single imei no. i am using micromax q50 right now and it has 2 imei no. and both sim works perfectly but this phone has only single imei no, i saw an unboxing video on youtube and saw the box which confirms it has single imei. so i am scared that if only 1 sim will work then it will not be good for me. please friends any one who have used any chinese branded dual sim phone like lenovo or zopo or anyother co. bought from china online store, recently in india please guide me whether it will work perfectly or not.
please friends help me soon. as i want to order this phone soon coz it will take atleast 25- 30 days to reach me

Many dual SIM phones only have a single IMEI ... for instance, my G11i Pro. I have no difficulty using both SIMs here in Philippines, on two different networks.

My guess is that the single IMEI will only become a problem if you try to use two SIMs on the same network. Perhaps someone with more information can comment on that.

Default Zp200

Hello all,

I'm looking at either the Lenovo A750, ZP100 or primarily the ZP200.

I was wondering if there are any owners of the three (especially the last one) who could let me know of their user experiences and if they would recommend these handsets?

I'm hoping to get something that is relatively futureproof for the time being (so Ice Cream Sandwich with a camera of 8MP as well as a decent RAM).

Any thoughts?

I read on a review in France, where I reside at the moment, that there is some trouble with IMEI's that don't start with 35. Does anyone know about this regarding the above handsets?

Many thanks!

Many thanks, Solutor. I've taken this in consideration and ordered the ZP200, in the end. Will let everyone know how it is when it gets here!

All the best,

Well, I'll let you know what it's like then. My curiosity is killing me, so had to order it. My last smartphones were a HTC Hero and HTC Mozart (wp7) - neither of which worked at Warp speed. So performance isn't the biggest deal. Nevertheless, I'll be happy to see what it is and share the word, whether good or not.

Hello to everyone.

Am seriously considering HTC t328W. Does anybody could recommend a reliable supplier? I know about etotalk, but would prefer another option.

Default Xt532 rom

Hi, I am quite satisfied XT532 user for few months - I did not have enough time to play with XT532, but now I have , it was really good buy for me. Looking for newest ROM, I was not successful, file was deleted due to copyright...blah blah, yet I will try to find it elsewhere. I have not been here for ages ). And evolution is going on and on as I can see...

Hi!
I'm running into trouble getting my ZTE-T U960 rooted. It has original Build 1.0.2B03 Kernel 2.6.35.7-perf+ and Baseband T on SIM1 and W on SIM2.
I tried already the whole day to get root as I'm missing market...tried Gingerbreak 1.2, Doomlord v1 and 4, Superoneclick (works until #7) etc.
Anybody an idea?

There is a U960 specific topic in this forum. Please ask U960 specific questions there.

Default XT532 ROM and memory issue

Thank You,

I installed last ROM, rooted my phone, I guess it more smooth to use now, good job! I am anyway struggling with free memory for my apps, I deleted apps I found in new xt532 forum. I struggled a bit with italian language but everything is OK and big effort was and still is done, god bless google translator :-)).

What do You think about Link2sd as available in XDA forum - is it worth exploring ? I would like to have at least 30 MBs still available for new APPS. Still struggling with 10-15 MB available even after uninstalling some unnecessary progs.

In TitaniumBackup (paid version) I have problem with moving apps from inner memory to system memory.

In Antutu benchmark I got half points in comparison to ZTE 1,5Gh (one and half, WTF ))! So it is very promising for near future. But have to say that XT532 is best dual sim I have had in my hands so far (FET T8888 and Gigabyte Gsmart).

Have a nice day all!

There's a reason because the sellers of poor Chinese clones are used to post benchmark made with Antutu and not Quadrant or other widely accepted benchmark apps

I checked with my Motorola ROM contact: he confirmed only the Chinese version is available in version D.
4.37D (Taiwanese version) is not there yet.

Default No more XT532 memory issue

Thank you so much, it is very powerful, you do the annoying work with your SD card just once - then it is only fun, I have got still around 50 MB with all apps installed. Now its all fine for me.

I ordered a 1700 mha battery for my U960 from obostore.com. They send a battery that did not (at all) fit the phone. Send them a mail about the problem, and the want me to send it back to china with registered airmail for a refund... It is a $10 battery, so I am not going to do that - and I guess that it is what they are counting on... But not wary god service in my opinion.

just got t328w delivered to my door, took longer than usual as it was stuck at custom for over a week.

anyway, just did the unboxing and the overall impression is very good.

I got the white version.the build quality is good and the case have a classy feels to it. The screen is very nicely built into the case. So overall very pleased with the presentation of the phone, very HTC!

The screen resolution is surprisingly good and clear, I cant really tell that much difference between this and my Galaxy Nexus. There is a good feedback/vibration when typing on the screen keyboard.The phone has ICS and Sense 4.0, and feels smooth overall and very well integrated. It also feels like it has a somewhat stripped down and basics version of ICS. As suspected, there is no Google Sync, Gmail or Google Play.

side by side, it definitely feels and looks like a much more expensive phone compared with Motorola XT532.



I will come back with a more detailed review once I spend a bit of time with this new toy.

Overall I m happy about this phone for now.

please please please think twice before getting an htc t328w

It has pretty good specs (1GHZ single core CPU, adreno 200 GPU, android 4.0.3, sense 4), and a VERY nice and sexy design with good chasis build quality...

HOWEVER

It IS A CHINESE PHONE

SOFTWARE PROBLEMS
-DOES NOT COME WITH GOOGLE APPS
-The Official ANDROID MARKET WILL NOT WORK (it's not even in the phone, and market apk's don't work, just a force close)
-There is NO ROOT available as of now
-Comes with a PLETHORA of unremovable bloatware (because it can't be rooted yet)

Physical Problems
-The screen is VERY bad (great colors and sharpness, very clear BUT is easily one of the most fragile LCD screens I've ever used, I've had it for 3 weeks and it's already covered with scratches after treating it with great care)
-Camera is horrible, it's a 5MP that feels like a 3MP grainy crap tool, pictures usually come out pixelated (compared to other smartphone camera's) and overly grainy and video isn't even HD

Also, being a chinese phones, there is very little support, and almost no english support at all...

It's not bad for a dual sim phone, and probably the safest and best for an android dual sim, but well, :S

If anyone has any questions please free to pm me

Default Zp200

Hello all,

So I got the ZP200 and so far rather impressed. Once I have it set up to my taste, I'll make a longer post about my thoughts.

However, I have encountered one issue that I can't seem to get my head around.

Both the magnetic compass and gyroscope do not seem to work. Has anyone had issues like this on other Android devices? I've sent an email to etotalk (who so far have been excellent with their customer service), but not received a reply just yet.

I can't find somewhere to calibrate these. I've downloaded an app called AndroSensor - to which magnetic field, orientation and gyroscope are saying "waiting for event". I've also tried what appears to be a soft factory reset which doesn't help either.

Lastly, anyone know how to perform a hard factory reset on these? I can't seem to find anything online!

Cheers!

Strongly disagree.


The phone is custom made for Chinese market, but that alone doesnt make it a bad phone.

Bootloader unlock: The phone bootloader can be unlocked by from the official HTCDev. Afterall, it is a genuine HTC, and very easy to unlock (and lock) bootloader.

Root: The root has already been available since early May, it is literally one software, a click of button 3 reboot and job done. Very Straightforward.

Google Apps: extremely easy to add, took me 5mins to do it, Gmail, Google Play, Youtube..the whole package. The only thing you can't do on this phone is add a Google Account under Account & Sync, but it doesnt hinder any of the google apps functions.

Bloatware: there are quite a few as it is afterall a custom made phone for China Unicom. However, it's very easy to remove since the root is already available, so not a problem at all.

Dev support: The Dev support at the moment is mainly from the domestic Devs. I have raised the phone in russian andriod forum that did the Lenovo A60 Rom and some interest are building up. The t328w is a very straightforward easily rooted/developed phone! The only shortcoming at this stage as far as dev support is concerned is the lack of 3rd party Recovery for this particular model. Bear in mind the t328d already has a Custom Recovery, so really, just a matter of time.

Screen: I dont have any more problem as far as scratch is concerned, compared with my iPhone, Galaxy Nexus, or Moto532XT, and this phone cost far less than any of those.

Camera: agree that camera is not that good, and lack of front facing camera like the XT532. Frankly speaking, i dont really use camera on phone so this is not a problem for me.

What I do have problem with:
1) i seem to have issue with receiving SMS on line 2. It could well be my sim as my line 2 is a roaming sim. I ll report further when i have the chance to test it more thouroughly.

2) when i first insert the sims, it took the phone several reboot to recognized both sim cards. not sure why as I cant seem to be able to replicate the problem.

2) when one line is in used (text, call etc), the other line is disabled for that short moment. I think this is the same with most dual sim phone (such as Moto 532), but the signal on 2nd line of the HTC drop straight to zero when 1st line is in used.

In summary:
This is not a bad phone at all. and there is definitely root! and most problems can be resolved easily.

Hope this helps.

Totally agree with kingcedz.
Got my phone a few days ago.
Posted this on XDA, so posting it here too:

To root the T328W you need the HTC One V Root, but not the one found on XDA. There is another root method found on some Chinese site. Actually there are more than just one method to root the One V, one of them almost bricked my 1 day old device.

This is the one that worked for me:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1337622914

Of course you should unlock your bootloader before applying the root.

As for google apps, you need to download the Cyanogen gapps pack:
http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/Lat...on/Google_Apps
Download the latest Cyanogen 9, copy the files in /system/app to your device's /system/app/
And Change permission of the copied files.
Then make a full reboot ( Disable quick reboot or remove battery) and you should see Android Updating screen.
The google account does not appear in the Accounts and Sync in settings, but if you make a full sync the google account is synced in the process.

Next we need someone to make a recovery image for the T328W, and to solve the google account not appearing the Accounts and Sync.

Update: I contacted the developer of the One V Recovery Image (vivekkalady) and sent him the boot.img and he's looking into making a Recovery Rom for the T328W. I tried to add the 1% battery step mod for the T328W but with no luck so I contacted A recognized themer who is willing to help me make the mod but he's away and coming back by the weekend. Gotta love the Android community.

Hi guys,

Sorry, I am totally new to Android as I am an iPhone user. I am interested in a dual sim chinese android phone (Lenovo A750 looks pretty interesting) as I live between Britain and Italy, which makes it more convenient to use a single phone rather than two different ones.

However, don't know about operating system/firmware updates. With an iPhone, everything runs smoothly through iTunes, but what about updating a modified chinese Android phone ? Are firmware and operating system updates different ? Thanks !

Hmm, I can agree with you on the root and stuff, my bad, I'm sorry, I hadn't really checked support and such for this phone since late april, so I was unaware

But thank you for pointing out my mistakes, I will root this phone and post an update today.

Again, thank you!

If you paid with paypal, ask for a refund thru paypal. I think it is only safe bet with chinese.

u r welcome.

The t328w is really a rather nice phone. I find it hard to go back to Moto XT532 after using the t328w for a few days. The Sense 4.0 runs very smoothly over ICS on this little thing. The phone is marketed as "Desire V", but really, the t328w is clearly a dual-sim variation of the HTC One series.

This is the first attempt from HTC at a Dual Sim Andriod device, and I think it's quite well done (especially for this price range). Who knows, maybe we ll see an international version of this phone or even better, a version based of One X.
