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

Posted by – 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 Karasnn.com 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 http://bysino.net a partner of http://dhgate.com (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.

This is the first tablet that I have seen that is using the Renesas/NEC 1.2Ghz ARM Cortex-A9 Dual-Core processor platform (Renesas and NEC are collaborating on this ARM Cortex-A9 Dual-Core processor targeted at consumer electronics devices). I wonder how good this $135 Dual-Core Cortex-A9 tablet performs, I’ll try to get a sample to review further for you later during the next few days. Let me know what needs to get tested on this in the comments.
