    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.

    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 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 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.

    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. Later I'll explain how.

    To be continued ...

    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, it's enough good to video calls and take some picture yourself.

    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.

    Unfinished, he is working on it...

    :icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana:
    ROOT, CWM Recovery and better performance.

    To be ROOT is very simple, just install Framaroot version 1.9.1. We can download it from author page Framaroot - rooting your device for one click! Free download framaroot
    Just run it and select the image option below, reboot your device and voila!!!


    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.

    1.PNG 2.PNG . ​

    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.!!
