Do you remember the Changhong V9 aka HONphone V9? Its the 4.3-inch phone with qHD screen from this not so well-known manufacturer. They havve another device which was already featured on this site, the Changhong Z-Me.

Long ago, they had introduced a phone that is packed with 3000 mAh battery capacity. It was called the Changhong Z1, it just runs on MT6573 –a quite really old MediaTek chip. Now, to cope up with the advancements of these Android smartphones, Changhong brings us the HONphone Z3.

HONphone Z3/Changhong Z3 Specs and Features

You can see, the Changhong Z3 has a really nice design, the bezels on the side is beautifully made to be really thin. It sports a 4.5-inch of IPS screen, having a QHD resolution at 960*540 pixels.


An interesting part here about the screen is , its not just your typical capacitive LCD screen. It uses a technology called OGS full lamination process, which enables full lamination of the screen and color reproduction to produce better visual effects, while reducing a layer of glass to come up with a thinner mobile phone.

The main highlight of this Changhong Z3 is its 3200mAh battery capacity, beefing itself on its 10mm body thickness. With the narrower bezels on borders, the Z3 gives us a wider view-able area on the screen which is just elegant.

Accompanying the 3 Android keys on the front surface is the 1.3-megapixels front-facing camera on the top. While on the back, the 8MP AF main snapper rests with its LED flash.

The Changhong Z3 is equipped with a dual-core MT6577 processor, clocked at 1GHz. It has the usual 4GB ROM and 512MB RAM memory combo which is always good. It runs on Android 4.0 ICS out of the box.

Changhong is not a new name on these smartphone manufacturing field, their experience on such stuff reflected how did the Z3 came up as good as it was in terms of design and selected parameters. However, the 512MB is a bit of disappointing to some maybe.

Expected price of this HONphone Z3 is at 1999 yuan or approximately at $320 which I think is a bit steep and a true cause of turn down as this price shall give you a quad-core phone instead.
