Please note Pofung is rebranding name of Baofeng for international markets.
The new name ‘Pofung’ is easier to pronounce and more friendly to our customers, while maintaining the phonetic symbolism of our brand.
Our new brand ‘Pofung’ will gradually replace the existing brand ‘BAOFENG’ in the global markets outside China.
This radio has upped the bar on ham radio technology!
Compare to previous Baofeng products (UV-5R and the UV-B Series) this radio comes with a much louder speaker (1 watt!).
More solid design with larger buttons, and a better antenna.
This radio can be programmed with or without a PC to also work on private repeater systems.

As the other gentleman said, the radio fits better in your hand as is larger than the UV-5R and UV-B5/6 series. This radio is solid & well built - it's made for work and everyday use.
The squelch actually works on this model. Both of my radios are set to 5. The UV-82 doesn't pick up as much key check and static from guys hitting the repeaters, not so with the UV-5R.
The manual is 'now more better', but the Chinese would do well to hire an American or Brit to proofread the copy first. For first time radio operators, it actually explains what the radio functions in the menu do (ex. actual explains the BCL utility). This bit of detail was lacking in the UV-5R product line (though more support sites exist for that model.)
Also, this UV-82 series has two PTT buttons, so you can set it up to monitor two repeaters on A/B, selectively scan those stations and unlike the UV-5R, don't have to hit the A/B button switch between frequencies.
Moving on, there are some issues I have with the UV-82 radio;
As stated, the reception is very good, but it's super sensitive on some FM frequencies (especially on FM Radio RX, I live right down the mountain from a FM station and it picks up a frequency click, while the UV-5R does not). One reviewer rightly tagged it for having some harmonics issues.
1) You lose the VFO/M button. With this system, you have to hold the menu button and turn the unit on and off to switch between frequency and memory. While a bit annoying, it wasn't hard to get used to.
2) Unlike the UV-5R series, the UV-82 doesn't sit well on a flat surface. The radio's own base could be better.
3) The charging base is a bit lacking, you almost have to angle the radio right to fit it in the slot so that it starts to charge.
Han'sHam site has a fix here for the base: [...]
Product experts abound on the internet: but the UV-82 has a fairly small knowledge base compared to the tried and true UV-5R and it's steady cousin the B5. Before you buy, contact Martyn at Radio Mart to see if this is a good fit for you, he knows more about these radios than most and you can call him on the phone. He also sponsors the UV-82 Yahoo support group.
All and all - I wouldn't give up the UV-5R yet if you plan on switching it out for a UV-82, it's done right by me and it suits most of my needs. I do like this UV-82 though and most likely will get another antennae for it soon.
However: all and all, it's a performer, significantly more noticeable power than the previous series, very good sound and excellent reception.
Dual Band Radio excellent for SatCom.
The newest version of this sub $50.00 radio is sure to be a huge hit for Baofeng. I wasn't much impressed with the UV-5r models. Sure they work good, but they kinda feel like you bought them from Toys R Us. The UV-82 has a much better "in the hand feel" then the 5R models, mainly due to its much higher capacity battery and upgraded case. The radio itself is about 1/3 larger than the 5R models, so it simply fits in your hand better. Gone is the toy walkie talkie feel. The key pad has been upgraded and the zero is at the bottom where it should be and lights up white (not off white or orange or green or some other weird hard to see color) and is very easy to see in low light situations. It has much better battery life then the 5R (1800 mA/h) and has a handy and easy removal system. The upgraded larger speaker is loud and clear. The unique dual PTT buttons are a nice add on. No longer do you have to toggle between A/B bands, just simply push the upper PTT for band A and the bottom PTT button for band B. I like this feature because we use the 440 side as around the house/yard communications and the 2 meter side for repeater use. No switching back and forth from A to B to transmit. It also has a very handy LED flash light accessible with its own dedicated on/off button. Programming the radio is just as easy as the 5R as it uses the same operating system. Once you learn what the menu item are, it’s a breeze. A couple of the button functions are a little different from the 5R but no big deal. The free downloadable software makes it “fall off a log” easy to program and store various frequency configurations (like SatCom or local repeater use) and allows you to customize some of the radio parameters that cannot be done using the key pad on the radio. Couple your new UV-82 with an upgraded antenna (I recommend the Diamond RH 771) which you can get right here at Amazon and the speaker mic, which is also available here, and you have a very capable radio at a very affordable price. Like I said in the subject line “Icom and Yeasu better pay attention”. I have several HTs, 2-UV-5Rs, 2-UV-5RAs, 2-Yaesu VX-6Rs and now the UV-82. I've only had it for a few days but it has become my go to HT. Very impressed with it so far and I highly recommend it. I’ll give it 30 days and post an update here.
I have been very impressed by these radios. I own three now and have recommended them to many of my fellow "HAMers". After handling/using both this and the UV-5R. I do like this one a lot more. Mostly for the construction. It does not at all have the "kiddie walkie-talkie" feeling instead feeling very solid. I've got one that I take camping often and another that rides in my truck. The dual PTT button is a nice touch as well that my UV-5R friends envy. Battery life was decent. I turned the flashlight on and the FM radio blaring and that lasted about 10 hours. I have left just the radio monitering for days before and found it still running. I did replace the stock antenna. Not that it was terrible mind you, really it wasn't bad but I did want the extra stretch. So I have a Nagoya NA-771 for the camping radio and a Tram 1185 on the truck radio. (Note, for the tram antennas you will need an adapter such a this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ATEDHXE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) Now as far as programming goes I went the suggested route. I threw away the chinese disk and used a cable (https://www.amazon.com/Baofeng-Programming-Cable-BAOFENG-BF-888S/dp/B00CP0I474/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1466691085&sr=8-1&keywords=baofeng+cable) with CHIRP software. ([...]) One nice thing about this setup is that once I have programmed all the channels into my CHIRP I can just copy and paste them on to each radio I get. So I have enjoyed this radio it's a radio I've started a lot of guys on so it's a good place to begin, or if you just wand to pick up some "handy talkies" to stash around, these are so inexpensive, and are a great tool for the job.
