A 13.2-megapixel rear camera takes great pictures, even in low light.

In this context,  Zopo's Speed 7 Plus makes a strong debut - its features are so similar to other smartphones that it is easy to adapt without too many hits and misses, or having to peruse its literature.

It took me - and I am usually reluctant to try out a new device - about 20-odd minutes to download the apps I needed (Facebook, Gmail, Uber, WhatsApp), and I was as comfortable using it as my two-year-old Samsung.

But that's also its Achilles' heel: If it is so similar to other devices, what distinguishes it?

The hardware is impressive. Smart black cover, with a matte-finish on the back, the device is a lightweight.

The large screen (full-HD resolution with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution) provides a bright display.

But the shiny cover also makes it slippery and it is advisable to get a good cover lest it slips out of your hand.

A 13.2-megapixel (MP) rear camera takes great pictures, even in low light. Pictures taken at night had little noise.

The 5MP front camera is a sweet add-on, allowing comfortable Skype calls.

This is something this Chinese smartphone segment can boast of.

The battery, usually the iffy part of the China-made phones, holds out for an entire day with regular use.

The 64-bit MT6753 octa-core processor at 1.5 GHz, along with a 3 GB of RAM makes it fast and smooth.

The phone did not hang once during the entire month I used it.
