All I can say is this phone is great, it has all the features you would expect from an android phone.
It has good speed and is very fast to download music games etc.
A fantastic buy.
Thank you for taking your time to post a review, it's well appreciated.

My wifes had the phone a few months now and she is very pleased with it. Nice big screen, all apps shes installed work fine, Facebook, Ebay etc.
One small thing is that the back of the phone comes off very easily (sometimes in her bag) but its not big issue and lock back into place easy enough.
One thing that I cannot get to work is the GPS, Tried everything.
Thank you for yor taking time to post a review on Dapeng i9877/i9977, its well appreciatedd, Please email at email@example.com for further assistance if you have any problem. Thank you.

This is a great phone, i Love it. I only have one question: if I buy an HDMI cable, will this phone be able to connect with a TV? (video out) I see you offer a cable, but I want to be sure.
Thanks so much for your orders on our site, you need this one: http://www.merimobiles.com/multi-function-to-hdmi-cable-transfer-hd-tv-adaptor_p/meri7795.htm

I've got a dapeng i9877.
It's working fine except that the jack 3.5 mm is not standard (trrs very long)
I saw in the last review that a person sent to your customer service a link where to buy an adapter for connecting a standard headphone.
Could you please give it to me or maybe could you directly sell it me.
Other question : there is no system update on the phone which is given with Androd 4.0.4, do you know when any update to android v4.1 or 4.2 will be available and how to do this. Thank you.
Thanks so much, I think the adaptors you want is: http://www.merimobiles.com/adapters-for-the-earphones-from-2-5mm-to-3-5mm_p/meri7316.htm
please check here and order it.
For the firmware update, it's the latest versions.

The screen is really big, phone is fast enough for everything.Touchscreen with only 480 x 854 for 6 inch is of course not very good, but what can you expect for the price? Disadvantage: no updates for android 4.1.2 or 4.2.x
Thanks. the updated version of Android may available.

This phone arrived within 1 week of ordering it (to the UK). The phone is fast and has all the features that you would expect from a phone costing 3 times as much in the uk . As stated before though, the Headset socket is not the usual android socket. The socket/Jack is a TRRS type 3.5mm socket and an adapter is needed to use NORMAL headphones with this phone. (link sent to Customer services)
thank you for taking the time to post a review its well appreciated, thanks

Hi, I want to buy this model, but only i9977, how do you recognize that in order?
Does it have light sensor, G-sensors, 8MP camera, MTK6577 CPU?? Cos i9877 had MTK6575.
I want only i9977 model.
Thanks for quick reply.
Its the i9977 with the MTK6577, thank you

Upon doing some research on this phone, it seems that the audio jack is not of standard length, meaning that most after market headphones will not work with it. I was wondering if a converter is sold so that headphones of standard length will work.
Would you by any chance have a link to that certain adapter and than we could add it as an option for this phone, if yes please email us at email@example.com

This is a brilliant alternative to the Galaxy Note/2. It makes both the Note and Note2 look tiny in comparison, but it's not so huge that it's not usable. It's very fast, responsive asnd the screen is very vivid.
Couple of niggles that may annoy you though: Getting the back cover back on is really annoying. You have to slide it back in, not clip it, and it can take a bit to do so.
Limited memory for apps. This isn't so bad though, as many apps are now able to be moved to SD, and thankfully the default is the external SD card.
The phone does glitch out, occationally and by that, I mean, very rarely as in the screen won't respond to any of your commands and seems to do what it wants. I found a reboot will fix this. Also i found installing swifkey3 can cause the phone to bug out too. I have no idea why. May not happen for you.
That's pretty much it for bugs.
The battery life is pretty good. It will last you a day with medium usage. Video playback is awesome and surfing the net with that amazing screen is just a joy. Listening to music is okay, the speakers do the job. Not the best, but for what you pay for its damn decent.
You get 2 batteries. Not 1 as stated, so that is always a win.
Camera is decent. Won't replace your digital one you got, but for on the go snaps, its good.
Using the 2 sims slots are no hassle. Everything there works fine and you don't need to configure the APNs it,'s all done automatically.
Merrimobiles are a nice friendly lot to deal with, and they always get back to you, to help you out.
If you like big phones this is the daddy of them. Hopefully they release a version in the future with bigger memory for apps, and bigger internal storage. But all in all great phone.
thank you for taking the time to post a review, its well appreciated

I am located in the U.S. and am currently using this phone on Straight Talk using an AT&T sim. it only runs on 850 MHz 3g network in USA (not 1900 MHz) so be aware and check your coverage map. I get pretty decent signal. I highly recommend purchasing the hardcase and Root. You will not easily find the hardcase in any store, might as well purchase together.
This phone does not have a compass, but has GPS.
The battery lasts all day.
One gripe I have about the phone, is the small space to install programs. Even though it has 4gb only .5 is available to install programs.
This phone does not allow for every headset to plug into the port. The headset that is included has an extra long jack, so a replacement needs to match.
thank you for taking the time to post a review its well appreciated
