inew-v3-mt6582-4It takes quite a bit to get me excited, and the MTK6582 iNew V3 did that for me. Upon first receiving the phone, I was very impressed with the box it came in. The box showed some real class with a bit of texture and style to it. I liked what iNew did there. First impressions are important they say.

A flip case was included. The box was super tight, and the ribbon meant to slide out the contents didn’t help at all. It was in there so tight, that when pulling on the ribbon, the box actually started to rip. Finally putting my thumb inside and giving it a hard tug brought it loose.

Finally getting the box opened, there was the standard assortment of accessories. The quality of the headphones, USB cable, and charger all looked fairly standard. I’ve definitely seen cheaper headphones.

I was impressed with the manual, which was entirely in English. I still haven’t gone through the manual closely, but at first glance it looks to be written by a native speaker as opposed to some poorly translated text.

When I pulled the MT6582 iNew V3 out, I was immediately impressed by it’s slick looks. This is one great looking phone. The side panels seemed to be brushed aluminum and the back is matte finish. These two factors combined with the square corners and rounded tops and bottoms make for a very classy and unique looking mobile.

It turns out the phone isn’t actually 6.5mm. While at the edges it’s 6.5mm, at the thickest part it’s actually 7.9mm. For me this is no problem. The iNew V3 looks awesome and the thickness is fine. It doesn’t detract at all from my opinion of the phone. Though it must be mentioned, I’m a bit disappointed in iNew for being somewhat misleading. 6.5mm is partially true, but mostly not.

The back unsnaps fine, as there’s a little notch to get the process started. The phone is dual-SIM, one of which is sized for a micro/mini SIM. If your SIM is full sized, it’s no problem to cut it down.

Overall I was very impressed with the iNew V3. It didn’t disappoint in the looks department, and while the phone is extremely light without the battery, it doesn’t look cheap in the slightest.
