ZOPO Color M4 unboxing

ZOPO Color M4 Design, Display and OS
This Color M4 handset is using plastic body, build and finishing is okay. The texture on the back looks great. Handset is comfortable to hold cause of the size, light weight at 115 grams but not that slim.
The back cover can be removed, there is normal SIM and micro SIM slot and a separate micro SD card slot. There is no LED notification and only 2 sensors – accelerometer and proximity.
Screen is 4 inches TFT with 800 x 480 pixels resolution, the quality is bad and so are the viewing angles.
ZOPO Color M4 is running Marshmallow (6.0) out of the box.
Memory and Storage
There is 1GB RAM and 16GB storage.
ZOPO Color M4 performance
This handset is powered by MediaTek MT6737M quad core processor with Mali T720 GPU. Overall performance is no good, it lags occasionally. The handset does not feel that warm when you hold it but the battery temperature goes up to 47 degrees, that is not good.

ZOPO Color M4 Gaming review
I played Asphalt and it was not at all smooth in very low visual quality mode, I guess you get an idea about how powerful this handset is.
ZOPO Color M4 Camera review
The rear camera is 5MP fixed focus and front camera is 2MP fixed focus. Camera quality is bad, handset can shoot 720p videos and quality is just about acceptable.
Camera Rating 2 out of 5
Rear and front camera sample
Sound output is very low. No issues with network. Reliance Jio SIM worked without any issues.
ZOPO Color M4 Battery performance
The 1450 mAh battery can be removed. Battery life is less you can expect 3 to 4 hours of non-stop usage.
ZOPO Color M4 Battery Performance (time / battery % drop / estimated battery temperature)
- Running Benchmark app – 11 minutes /5% / 42 degree
- Asphalt 8 game play – 18 minutes / 10% / 47 degree
- HD video play back – 26 minutes / 10% / 43 degree
It took me 2 hours to charge the handset from 0% to 100% using wall charger.
ZOPO Color M4 review verdict
Color M4 is disappointing, display is bad, camera is bad, performance is laggy and battery life is also not at all impressive.
Makes sense to invest extra and go for the Redmi 4A with VoLTE support.
