ZOPO ZP998 Octacore Android Smartphone Review and Giveaway
Strangely, and maybe by necessity being a budget phone, both variants will have only 1GB of RAM. The performance boost of added RAM say maybe 2GB of it in an octa-core phone is substantial, and we were wondering if Archos could have squeezed the cost enough to at least put 2GB of RAM in the octa-core 50c Oxygen. Also, both variants will have the same 2,000maAh batteries. Again we wonder if a little more battery power could have been given to the octa-core variant, which is sure to need more juice turning 8 cores. On the upside though, both variants are sure to be able to handle HD multimedia with ease.

Additionally, it also includes a rootable firmware, custom ROMs and excellent design. The octacore processor, however, feels more like a gimmick rather than a real competitor to Qualcomm or NVIDIA chipsets. While it scores high on benchmarks, its real-world performance fails to impress particularly with respect to apps that dont make use of all eight cores. MakeUseOf recommends: Dont buy it. Unless you can find the ZP998, or a similar octacore device, for around $200, you get better mileage from a Nexus 5, Moto G and even the Moto X. How do I win the ZOPO ZP998?
