News just in is that Zopo zp500 Libero has been updated to Zopo zp500+ (plus) with mtk mt6577 / mtk6577 and IPS LCD.  This is excellent news, however I think they made a mistake by not upgrading the RAM to 1gb.  The IPS screen along with 6577 and Zopo’s great camera would have put the zp500+ at the top of Gizbeat’s shortlist…That is, if they’d included 1gb RAM instead of 512mb.

Don’t get me wrong, this is still a great phone, and average users won’t miss having 1gb.  But the average user also won’t notice the difference between mtk6575 and mtk mt6577 / mtk6577.  Those who like to listen to music, surf the web with several tabs open and chat at the same time, or who people use apps that take up a lot of RAM will notice both the single-core/dual-core and 512mb/1gb difference.

Are we talking about significant differences?  Not so much, but as those who are on the go and used to super-quick response may find themselves getting irritated at even slight delays. Also, apps are getting bigger and more demanding. Having 1gb would of future-proofed the zp500+ a bit.  Ahhh…What could of been.

I still can recommend the zp500+.  It’s a very good looking phone, Zopo makes a great product, has good customer service and very good cameras.  The IPS LCD will give excellent brightness and viewing angles, and the dual-core CPU is a welcome addition.
