    First touchdown:
    We have front a really big device, but in a short time we will forget the size, due his spectacular screen and fluidity.
    This device is amazing, everything in it is great, the screen, the processor, the RAM, the ROM, the GPU and the further functions.
    Only one thing are pretty just, the battery. This one will require a exclusive section to review it, but you must not make hasty conclusions yet.

    Body and Materials:
    The materials used are pretty good. In addition to the protection Corning Gorilla glass 3, has a metal frame surrounding the device. We find the power button on the left side and the volume control on the right side. The earphone jack and the micro-usb port are located on the top side.
    This device does not have the classical menu keys under screen, the menu key are displayed on screen (virtual keys menu).

    If you turning the device, can see a polycarbonate shell with the THL logo, a 13 megapixel camera with optical Sony, flash LED and microphone for video recording.
    When you lift the back cover, you have access to the battery compartment where can find 2 SIM slots and one microsd card slot

    With a 6" screen, this is a sizeable device. But is too easy to handle, thanks to his narrow screen framework, only a few edge millimeters, the THL T200 has a contained width.

    frente.JPG trasera.JPG
    Screen:
    The screen is a 6 inch panel Full HD resolution of 441 ppi pixel density with "One glass Solution" technology. This one offers a small gap between the glass cover and the LCD screen that allows to minimize reflections in direct sunlight and giving you around 180 degrees of visual angle, protected by Corning Gorilla glass 3, which ensures high resistance to scratches and bumps.
    The touch screen is 5 points and responds smoothly and quickly.

    The brightness is excellent, allows us to be able to see the screen under sunlight without difficulty and the colors are pretty realistic.
    I've seen better screens, but never in a chinese devices brand. I can assure you that THL T200 screen quality is amazing.

    OS and overall throughput:

    The device came with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Google GAPPS installed and without any customization by the brand.
    We haven't noticed any lag and the system fluidity is excellent, the browser opens pages instantly. With flash and plugin pages, we get the same speed.

    Even with the most demanding games, speed and overall performance does not decrease at any time.
    The processor, GPU and RAM are enough to handle all applications, games and HD movies, without any lag or system crash.
    Therefore, the THL T200 is a device designed to overcome the most hard tests.


    Build:
    Screenshot_t_2014-03-12-19-17-39.
    Sound:
    The overall sound is very good, I would give an overall mark of 8.
    Our talker hears us clearly without background noise, I suspect the rear microphone, in addition to record audio on videos, serves to attenuate background noise, but I can't confirm this.
    We listen to our talker perfectly, but a little low, IMO.
    The sound with the original headphones is poor, but with a good headphones the sound will improve to much.
    The rear speaker sound is good, although the level is very low. This can be solved with the engineer menu, to give more volume.
    I'll explain how do it later.

    Battery:
    A terminal so slim and with removable battery has a price, a very thin 2500 mAh battery.
    The battery is somewhat sparse for a 6 inch. With moderate usage, reaches almost two days of autonomy, wifi off when not needed, low brightness, short gps, and about 8-10 calls.

    With heavy use, GPS, wifi and data all the time, Tapatalk, alot web browsing, some game, with a total of 5 hours of screen on, I lasted 18 hours battery life.

    In short, if you give a high use, the duration will be sufficient for a full day (about 16 ~ 18 hours), autonomy can be improved IMO.
    Ideally a battery above 3000 mAh for such a technological wonder.

    With high usage:
    Screenshot_2014-03-20-20-17-27. Screenshot_2014-03-20-20-16-49.

    Recharge 3 hours and 10 minutes on stock charger and with a fully discharged battery,
    I haven't seen the fast charge feature announcing by the manufacturer anywhere.
    Perhaps it supports that technology with a special charger (?).

    With moderate usage:
    Screenshot_2014-03-24-10-49-25. Screenshot_2014-03-24-10-49-42.


    Another common trait in all Octa-Core is the generated heat, if you force 8 cores to work at once and the graphics perform at their best (eg. a game with many graphics), you will notice that the heat generated may be undue, but don't worry about it, the device will not burn at all. As I say, it's normal on these processors.

      Cameras:
      On this device we will found two cameras, both manufactured by Sony.
      The front camera is the model IMX111 (real 8.Mpx, 13.Mpx interpolated) with autofocus and f/2.4 aperture, it's enough good to video calls and take some picture yourself.
      This device has facial recognition unlock. Therefore, it's highly recommended to have a high quality front camera, if happens that you will use this feature.

      On the rear camera, we found the sensor model IMX135 (real 13.Mpx, 18.Mpx interpolated). It has f/2.0 aperture, HDR , face recognition, smile recognition, touch autofocus and more, but I will comment the most notable feature, the HDR.

      Without HDR:

      With HDR:

      You can see the difference, so this technology (HDR) really works.

        Connectivity:

        OTG:
        Well, the OTG works, I tested it with a keyboard, a mouse and a 16Gb pendrive and all of them have worked flawlessly.
        I need to do the test with a USB Hub, and connect all at once. I'll to buy an usb hub to test it coming soon.

        Usb Keyboard:
        Screenshot_2014-03-15-13-38-59.

        NFC:
        The NFC is a world entirely unknown to me, I confess. All that I've been able to do with it, is to exchange a photo to an xperia, but with the NFC TAG issue, I haven't idea how it works, in addition to that I haven't any tag for test.
        If someone wants to experiment, I have an apk called NFC.apk. This one is supposedly to manage nfc tags. If you want nfc.apk, please send me a private message.

        Bluetooth:
        Tested with a headset bluetooth, exchange files to another phone and connected with an Parrot from a friend, everything worked perfectly, so I will not dwell further in this section.

        WI-FI:
        Isn't the best WI-FI that I've seen, maybe is one of slack points, but meets with his function well, and the scope isn't too bad.
        Tested with youtube videos and streaming. Even if you moving away from the router, you not going to experience lag (within a reasonable radius).

        Wi.Fi speed test:
        1_Screenshot_2014-03-12-18-12-29. 2_Screenshot_2014-03-14-21-44-30. 3_Screenshot_2014-03-14-21-45-05. 4_Screenshot_2014-03-14-21-45-09.

        WCDMA:
        The signal on both SIM is very good, I use 2 cards from different operators and haven't experienced problems with network coverage.
        Another great feature is that you can select SIM card want for 3G data, which is very useful because card formats are different and they can't be swapped.
        10 points to THL by this useful function!!


        The 3G speed is the highest that the standard can give, with HSUPA, HSDPA and HSPA+ latest generation, so technically it's a device with 3.5G (the 4G step predecessor).

        I must emphasize that it's Dual-Sim Standby, when a card is busy in call, the other SIM is disconnected. If you are using 3G data and you receive an incoming call, data will they stop and the call prevails.
        On the negative side, the device haven't 900Mhz band or 4G LTE.

        root, CWM recovery and better performance.

        root:
        To be root is very simple, just install Framaroot version 1.9.1. We can download it from author page http://framaroot.net
        Just run it and select the image option below, reboot your device and voila!!!

        root_thl_T200.PNG

        recovery:
        The device comes with a recovery in chinese language, which you can access pressing Vol - and Power.
        As most of us may have problems with the Chinese language, we will install a CWM recovery (In English), much more friendly.

        Download the recovery from the link, and put it in the SD card root with the name recovery.img
        Install Movileuncletools from Google market, as the device is already rooted, we can install the recovery with the Movileuncletool, just chose the option for it.


        Screenshot_2014-03-09-20-41-56. Screenshot_2014-03-09-20-42-14.

        Now we can install custom ROMS, do backups, wipe, etc ...

        WARNING: To get into CWM recovery mode, you must press VOL + and Power.
        If you press VOL - and Power, will enter into Chinese recovery, and unless you know Chinese, you will need remove the battery, to prevent select anything unwanted of the menu.


        You get into CWM recovery mode with movileuncletools also.

        I haven't found any custom ROM for this model. There are one on needroms, but It's for chinese devices version and the baseband does not work here, so you don't should ever install it, because the device will lose the imeis and baseband.
        You're warned about it.!!


        Download CWM recovery.img : https://www.mediafire.com/?nqyh3byxx9g9ewh

                  Lol, this is the first international review of Mds, I never have ever expected this. So, did you have this idea, isn't it? Or actually comes from @BreixoBreixo.
                  Whatever, it's a pleasure read you, mate
