My wife and I both have Baofeng's for some time now. My wife won this little TG-620 at a hamfest. We have had it about six months and it was still in the box. The battery came up fine. The program seems to copy the Baofeng format. The audio is way better than the Baofeng, sounds like it is a quality radio. The Baofeng is sort of raspy like a bad speaker in both of them. The Quansheng must have better audio circuitry or maybe a little bass mixed in. It reall sounds good. Transmit wise it has a watt more than the Baofeng. I am not bashing the Baofeng I often tell people on the air that I have never heard a bad on on the air.
