Review: $120 Hero H2000 MTK6516 Android Froyo Powered iphone4-copy

Posted by Charbax – April 13, 2011

I actually found this being sold at 780 renminbi ($120) at the Shenzhen Electronics Market the day after I bought it. So the price for this is actually as low as that. Also see my video review of the similar but even cheaper $87 FG8 3.5" capacitive MTK6515 HTC Desire clone. And my video interview with the probable manufacturer of this $120 MTK6516 Hero H2000 smartphone.

Here are the specs for this cool $120 Android Powered iphone4-copy:

Hero H2000
MTK6516 ARM9 460Mhz + 250Mhz DSP
Android 2.2 Froyo
2GB Flash storage, MicroSD expansion
3.5" HVGA Capacitive touch screen
GSM/GPRS/EDGE Dual-SIM card slots (no 3G)
WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm stereo heaphones, 2 Megapixel back-facing, 0.3Megapixel front-facing cameras

I bought one of my H2000 from Sinoteck for $149 (969 renminbi) at a partner of (they were exhibitor at the Shenzhen Electronics Fair) and the other I bought for $131 (850 renminbi) on the Shenzhen electronics market, then finding it being sold for $120 (780 renminbi) the day after.

$149 Android Powered iphone4-clone, Sinoteck H2000 Hero

Posted by Charbax – April 8, 2011

Why pay $800 for an iPhone (or $199 on 2-year $2000 contract), when you can buy an Android version for $149 and not have to pay anything further, other that perhaps a pre-paid plan. This one uses the Mediatek ARM9 460Mhz with DSP, runs Android Froyo. You can watch my Mediatek video from Mobile World Congress, they are one of the leaders in making these lowest cost ARM SoC solutions for Android smartphones, their next generation adds support for 3G networks. This $149 Sinoteck H2000 Hero comes with a 3.5" HVGA capacitive touch screen, excellent Android implementation by Mediatek, that one is GPRS/GSM only though, Sinoteck also sells a Qualcomm MSM7200A based version for 3G/WCDMA support but for an additional $50.

Here are their infos from Sinoteck International (HK)Co.,Limited. (

Cheaper Android phones is key to making Android the absolute most popular smartphone platform of the future, bringing the mobile Internet and apps to potentially billions of people around the world.
