Samsung Galaxy S5 clone by No.1 for only $155

April 19, 2014 - Written By Austin Ouellette

You probably haven’t heard of the company No. 1, they make clones of popular flagship devices much like GooPhone they target the Chinese market. No. 1 has launched their latest copied phone, the S7 a copy of the Samsung galaxy S5 for just $155. Only one problem it has failed to deliver on the same quality of specifications.

This phone sounds great at only $155,  the device was promised to sport an Octa core processor clocked at 1.7 Ghz, a 5.1″ display, a 16 megapixel camera, and be water/dust proof. They have failed to bring the Octa core processor, and 16 megapixel camera that was promised. Instead the device sports a 1.3 Ghz quad core processor (MT6582), and a 13 megapixel shooter. The processor is still only mid ranged, just not as good as they promised it would be, and the 13 megapixel camera isn’t a deal breaker. The phone will have only 1 GB of ram, this should be fine for most consumers.  The phone has a screen resolution listed at 960 x 540, which is a very sub par resolution when compared to the nexus 5 with its 1920 x 1080 resolution.

On their website it says, that it is both dust-proof and waterproof, but I wouldn’t be tying this out on a $155 phone it sounds a little to good to be true. The phone is rocking the same design of any other Samsung device, just without the big price tag. You are also only getting 8 GB of storage, and it’s only capable of 3G. Another thing to keep in mind is it is only on android 4.3 jellybean not 4.4 KitKat like the real model. I wouldn’t recommend buying this device.

Overall this device is just a descent phone, its not for the power users, but should be able to do most tasks you would want to do with a mid ranged handset. It is still a risk because it is such a cheap device there may be something wrong with the manufacturing, because it is cheaply made.
