Samsung Galaxy S5’s imitation is out!

Just a few days after Samsung released its flagship phone, smartphone copycat maker Goophone has released the Goophone S5 which looks almost identical to the Galaxy S5 in terms of specs and physique. But the kicker is that this only costs $299.99 which is more or less half the price of the original S5!

The Chinese company made their S5 to have the same hole-textured back as the Galaxy S5. It even has the heart rate sensor located near the camera (look!), but no function close to that has been mentioned by Goophone. It could just be for aesthetic purposes to give off that legit Samsung S5 look.

Goophone S5 specs:

5-inch Full HD display @ 1920 x 1080 pixels
2GHz Mediatek MT6592 octa-core processor
2GB RAM
32GB ROM, expandable through microSD
13MP rear camera with LED flash
5MP front camera
3G
2800mAh battery
Dual-SIM
Android 4.2

In terms of specs, the Goophone’s 5-inch display is a tiny bit smaller compared to Galaxy’s 5.1-inch screen, although both are Full HD. Goophone S5’s 13MP rear camera also falls short compared to Samsung S5’s 16MP rear camera with fast autofocus. Also, Goophone S5 lacks LTE connectivity and still runs on Android Jelly Bean.

As seen on their website, the device is currently out of stock; meaning people are patronizing and getting in on this thing. But for $299.99 (approx. Php13,000), who wouldn’t be tempted?

    It’s not in stock because it’s not being produced yet. Don’t you think?

    This device is a living proof that patent lawsuits in China are non-existent
