I will write a review of the MPOP on my blog.
The phone feels good (if a bit cheap), I liked the rubbery back cover of the phone, Is about 11mm thick but doesn't feel big in your hand at all, it is really comfortable to hold and use. I'd like it to have more RAM because I run several apps at the same time. (512 is good enough)

The WVGA display is bright enough to be used under direct sunlight (brightness all the way up).
The 1GHz Mediatek Processor under the hood is superior to it's qualcomm or samsung equivalents (MSM 8255 or 8655, hummingbird) but the graphics performance of the phone is not that good (You can play GTA Vice city at medium settings from a class 10 Micro SD card with no problems), specially 2d performance, wich means that apps that use a lot of 2d (layers like facebook messenger bubbles) can stutter from time to time.
The digitizer is less sensitive than the ones on higher end devices (not an issue actually, I only noticed it).

The camera is fixed focus.It is good (focus is a bit soft as any fixed focus shooter),iIt is actually better than the one on the Blackberry 9900 (thank God) and the 720p video I shot with it looks good. It doesn't perform good in low light and unfortunately it doesn't have a flash. The front facing camera is bad as most VGA front facing cameras.

Battery life...
It gets you through a full day of use (16 hours), as any other android phone with a 4 inch display there's always a way to kill your battery after a few hours (4) of heavy use.
Remember to break in the battery (charge it completely then use until depleted for the first weeks) it performs poorly when new.

The phone performs wanderfully for it's price.
