Anycall 5200 Knocks Off Samsung F520 Do you agree?

The new phone called the Anycall 5200 seems to be a slight knock off the Samsung F520, below you will see a couple of pictures of each phone and this is where you become mobile phone judge and jury — So please send in your debate comments so we can give sentence as soon as possible. When the 2 phones are slid up in portrait mode you will see the uncanny resemblance between the Anycall 5200 and the Samsung F520.

Anycall 5200 –

Anycall 5200

Samsung F520 –

Samsung F520

The Anycall 5200 apparently plays emulated ROMs from retro arcade and console games, other than just those not brilliant graphics on normal designed phone games. It will also offer MP3 and MP3 playback plus a digital camera and even WAP browsing capabilities. Now the thing is we cannot see this phone working on any other network other than in India. Just to let you know that this phone is NOT made by Samsung.

    stop hatin samsung wishes it could have a phone as innovative and modern as the anycall but I personally think that the anycall is way more modern and useful. So what if it doesn’t say samsung on it like it’s still the better phone labels shouldn’t be the one’s deciding whether it is

  2. ray says:

    hello i would like to ask anyone who knows about this fone and know where i can get it except canada or states. bcz i am ready to pay watever the amount to have this mobile phone.

  3. Ashraf says:

    I own this phone, seems good, i really don’t know what samsung looks and feel, but its worth to have it, there seems to be some issue with bluetoot and there is no sync tool to outlook and calender, however its good buy if u r not branded minded. reach me out at mdashraff@hotmail.com

    hey dude email me we can certainly look out a way to send u this peace i have couple of these.

  4. haha!! Anycall is the Korean brand for Samsung.. In Korea, Samsung uses the logo, “Anycall” instead of using Samsung…
    those two are the same company lol

  5. mohammed says:

    i have any call 5200+ it is good but how to change its language & its navi gator & does this phone supports 3 d games if does how? please help me out

  6. rohin says:

    However, to download NES games on your Anycall 5200, Do following:

    1. Connect your Phone to the computer.
    2. You will see 2 new drives in your computer. One for Phones internal Memory and one for the flash card inserted into your phone (My phone came with a 512 MB Card).
    3. Now search in both drives the files *.nes
    4. Now you have the folders where your new NES game files can be copied. (In fact, this mobile phone has a NES game emulator and so you can play all NES games like Mario, Contra etc on this phone)
    5. Copy your NES files to the folder that already contains other nes files.
    6. Disconnect from computer and you are done.

    1. If there is no nes file in your both drives of mobile, then you can copy one different NES file in each folder and then can check which NES is available in the phone.
    2. You can download the NES files for your phone from http://romhustler.net/roms/nes/a

    (Keep in mind that this site has some adult stuff, so take care of this)

    what settings eg size etc do i use

    just i have tried and the phone says unsupporded format, i could do this with my other phone but wont work on this anycall 5200

    please help many thanks

  8. Ashraf says:

    My phone doesn’t seems to install the driver automatically, it says “USB device Not recognized” i am using WinXP Pro SP2 HP branded desktop, i did tried switched off phone and connecting to PC thru USB cable nor camera or Disk are appears.

    I guess i m missing usbanyka.sys file, if you could anybody send me will be helpful. sent to mdashraff@hotmail.com

    You can do search in http://www.download.com or google for converter from avi/mpeg/dat to mp4 format its really save the MB.

  9. mark says:

    hi Ashraf, i have mp4 software but when i convert a video and put it on my phone it wond play it says unsupported, i have tried changing the setting e.g the video size but still wont work

    any ideas?

    also i have changed the name of the folders on my memory card the folder where my pictures and video go that i have taken with my camera and camcorder can you tell me the real names that were on before because my pics and vid won save when i take them

    many thanks

  10. Ashraf says:

    try this software it works with me AliveMP4Converter.exe do a google or download centre u will find these, get a trail copy which will convert 50% of your existing file, if this works then u may plan to buy or crack its upto u 🙂 there are couple of other software like AplusVideo2mp4all.exe and apex-free-3gp-converter.exe.

    never ever disturb those irritating chinese charcters i really don’t know what are there for but this phone seems to be related to those, well you need the full set of those folders and you need to place them according as it was early, read the blog, i guess someone here has those files, if not i will try to send you those. 🙂

    hope this help

  11. Ashraf says:

    Please read the ROHIN posting on *nes game, it only supports that format as if now.

    You don’t need driver for this phone, please refere to Rohin posting “. Connect your Phone to the computer.
    2. You will see 2 new drives in your computer. One for Phones internal Memory and one for the flash card inserted into your phone (My phone came with a 512 MB Card).”

    if this is not working in your pc try in different pc it will work, sometimes it simply don’t detact.

    you need more information i am online at a_raheel@hotmail.com

    Hi Friends..
    Blue tooth in my Cell is not working.
    Is there any settings or drivers required for that?
    I need english manual for AnyCall 5200.
    So plz help me out…………

  13. thierry says:

    i bought the anycall 5200+ last week; i think there’s a problem with the recorder, when i played the record my voice seems to be a metal noise. when i used camera to make a movie, that’s the same problem. Do you if it’s a stting problem or an real phone problem?

  14. Arahim says:

    Hi thierry … yes that right ..my phone also have same problem ..with Movie , voice very-very small out from speaker.. .I think
    this phone Have small Mic.

    About Bluetooth ,
    My phone can work with Motorola miniblue, but intermitent sound .., but this phone cannot tranfer /send mp3 or else with bluetooth ..( Hope i’am right )

  15. rohin says:

    Guys downlaod…any video converter 2.0.8 from Katz.cd…cracked version…then choose Mobile phone MPEG-4 under the output profile section of the app interface..Tested 100%
    Cheers all

  16. thierry says:

    thanks arahim, hum i hope it’s a a technical problem. i want to return the phone and use the guarantee.
    i think it isn’t normal, anycall 5200+ sold with recorder must have a good recorder and that ‘s the same thing for video.
    question: for all the owners of telephone 5200+ have you got any problem with the microphone or the sound is it good after having made a small film?
    please answer, i would like to know if if it is similar for all or not….

  17. Ashraf says:

    i too face the same probs, the recording input is really worst, i think there is some issue with it.

    you are right, it does support the bluetooth handsfree (i tried with nokia) but couldn’t find the other device or phone and can not send the file via bluetooth, i think these the fee for replica mobiles. 🙂

    this is not a product of samsung, its replica of samsung mobile built on anyka.com chipset.

  18. Ashraf says:

    I have sent the same, i have one good news, my phone bluetooth detects the motorola headset (handfree) and few models of nokia, but voice very low.

  19. goldy says:

    if anyone want to change ringtone follow this few easy step.
    1) go to “profiles” and
    2) go to “normal” and
    3) and go to “change setting”
    4) and go to “ring setting”
    5) and go to “ordinary call”
    so know you can select any ring you want.


  20. Venkateshwaran says:

    I have a PC with Win XP. My Anycall 5200 device is detected but it says there are no drivers. Please help me where i can get driver for this mobile to connect it with the computer

  21. Miguel says:

    my 5200+ works fine, bluetooth and recording seems to work. no problems.
    they are other phone witch are the same with same logo anycall.like ktech v900/v918,edit, witch are not as good.if u spent less than £130 on the phone.possiabilty u have a diffrent version.

  22. Ashraf says:

    Read the blog and comment attentively you will get the answer how to connect.

    You are saying that bluetoot detects other phones in your mobile? and while recording you have clearity on voice?

    please send me the pic of your phone and if possible all the files in first drive and second drive.

  23. angels21 says:

    If anyone needs a english manual sent to them just email me at banix16@hotmail.com

  32. Shorn says:

    Thanks in advance!

  33. Kev says:

    after reading comments from u guys, i decided to buy this phone, its great…
    n i try not to rename those folder to english even though i doesnt know how to read chinese since u guys r complaning it will not respone if changed the folder name,
    i did change the folder name which been plc in my micro sd card n deleted some data cuz i dun think ill be using it…

    SHIT!!! just the moment i edited a nice nice avril lavigne pic and put in… but cannot set as main display pic… T_T
    not even any other template pic which orginally come with this phone can be set as wallpaper… swt
    n my bluetooth is not responding, i wonder is it only respond on handfree bluetooth???
    n this is the worst, everytime i switch off my phone… n the next moment i on it back… everything back to original templates which i need to change the language to english again, set the time and date… set the incoming call ringtones… haih… this is boring! so i wouldnt dare to off my phone anymore! did any1 experience this kinda problem???
    pls pm me for any solution thru my email,
    thanks in advance

  34. Shorn says:

    kev, try not to rename folder names, one way to solve your problem, delete everything, copy and paste all the folders from a new phone, (ask your seller). It works.

    Overall, i think the phone is worth $300, however, could someone send me English Manual please. Cheerz

  35. Shorn says:

    some suggestions, first back up all files before you decide to change the file names or delete them.
    Second, bluetooth is noly compatiable with motoloa miniblue and some Nokia Bluetooth, seems to be bit picky. Last, avoid to slide to the north east often.

    Someone told me the other day, saying we can download OZ maps and load on this phone, could anyone confirm this? And where we can download them. Thanks

  36. ashley says:

    hi im waiting for my anycall 5200 to come in the post now im worried reading most of them comments lol how much did everyone buy it for and what am i gonna need to know ? can it be set up in english thats the thing im most worried about lol plsssssssssss email me ashes_est87@hotmail.co.uk

  37. Shorn says:

    ashely, yes, it can set up in English Display. The part in chinese are some learning stuffs, you can delete them if you want, but make sure you back up everything, if you rename anything, there is a high probability the phone not gonna work. Recently found out this phone can play some 3D NES game………….so oooooooooooooocoolllllllllllllllll

  38. Sammy says:

Would somebody mind sending me the english version, it would be greatly appreciated.

  41. andza says:

    Hello, I have strange behavior with my anycall 5200. Lighting of display are switched off after 2 or 3 s of inactive usage, how can I change this delay? Settings -> Display settings -> Screen Saver Timer is set to 30s, but it blankt very fast.
    And is this possible to change a default volume for video player, because it is much to loud when i am starting player.

  42. Kev says:

    Hi, can somebody send me the english manual for the 5200, its currently in Chinese and i have no idea how to change the language. Until i do i can’t do anything with it 🙁 thanks for your help guys.

  55. Dave says:


    I’ve bought 4 of these phones during december, 1 as a gift, 1 for me and the other 2 to sell on for a bit of profit. Out of these 4, 2 are faulty. One always says low power, even though when i try its battery in my phone it works fine and is fully charged, another says no network even though the sim cards i’ve tried in this phone works in the phone i bought for myself. I would warn anyone against buying these phones. I am currently attempting to exchange the faulty phones with the guy i bought them from on ebay, and him being in hong kong and me UK doesn’t make this easy.

    If you’re gonna buy one only get 1 at a time and keep all the paperwork cos you’ll probably need it!

  56. davethebrush says:

    anycall 5200 games folder compressed to a rar file:


    decompress this file to your pc – the folder names will look like little squares because its in chainese and you probably dont have the chinese font on your pc. I presume you just copy this folder across to the phone and hopefully it will fix the phones with bad games folders

    Bluetooth though was ok, I could use my plantronics headset with it, I could send and receive pictures.

    Anyway i contacted the place i brought it from and kicked up a huge fuss, after a few e-mails they finally agreed to refund me.
