Zopo is one of those Chinese manufacturers, which is known both in its homeland and internationally (more or less). Actually, it seems that the manufacturer really wants to step into the EU market as they already have physical retail stores in the Netherlands. Also, the company is said to open the European Operations Centre soon and they even had some conversations with the Dutch Prime Minister.
Well, in general it is a good thing for Europeans, but let’s put these things aside for now. This time we have brand new Zopo ZP530, which comes out from the new devices portfolio by the manufacturer. As usual, let’s unbox it and see what we have here.

You may already have your own impressions as far as design and you are right. Zopo ZP530 is another iPhone 6 wannabe device as far as design goes. We don’t call it a clone per se, but if you look only at the front, a lot of people would ask you if it is the newest flagship by Apple. We don’t call it necessarily a bad thing, but this shows the strategy company follows with this device.
On the other hand, the device really looks beautiful and very well made. It spots a 2.5D glass, which gives the seamless feeling in the hand. Also, the metal frame along with the metal buttons make it feel premium. What is more, the device is very sturdy overall. Finally, some add ons like a glowing home button makes it quite attractive.
Well, so far so good, but our full review is coming soon, where it will be clear if this device is worth your attention or not. [source]
