Want a flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but cannot afford the flagship price? Meet the Goophone N3

Want a flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but cannot afford the flagship price? Meet the Goophone N3
Unlike their new smartwatch, the Goophone N3 returns to the company’s roots of copying stuff almost to the millimeter. This time, it is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that has been cloned into the Goophone N3.

The Goophone N3 is not a complete clone of the Note 3 however, there is no S-pen (or would that be a Goo-pen?). That right there should be an indicator of the limitations that exist with shops that quickly rollout new hardware in such a fashion.

Aside from that, this new device is powered by MediaTek’s new MT6592 octa-core CPU at 1.7GHz. As you can see from the video below, the hardware does not seem to have any issues running through Android 4.2.

The rest of the package is what you would expect, the 5.7-inch display is 1080x1920, there is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of microSD card expandable storage on board. The main camera is a 13MP unit with the front facing sensor sized up at 5MP.

This almost-copy is available for just $299 SIM free. Though for the same money, getting a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on a 2-year contract or installment plan on any of the major carriers is clearly the better deal. Even paying more is a better option.

I like this one better. It's like the Galaxy Note 3 Google Play Edition. No TouchWiz!

You don't like TouchWiz??? WTF? You must be reading too much iBS about it on the so called tech sites. Or old news? TouchWiz NOW is the best thing that happen to Android. Why should you have Note (or big phone) without TouchWiz??? Why should you miss great functions? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2Yr7PvgKQw&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PLjdwqW-TWpWpY0e-zlIQgm5jHA9VB3akL

I hate TouchWiz, it's what turned me off android. Well that and android at the time was still too immature (Gingerbread days). Plus the original Galaxy S had awful battery life... But, I'll be getting a Nexus 5 soon.

TouchWiz is fine. I recently bought the LG G2, and actually like the LG Home more than Touchwiz. I used to be a friend to stock Android, but it got dry up a little bit. I do use Nova, Go launcher Apex and others sometimes. That's my opinion

I have only registered just to write this warning. I bought one of these goophones and they are sh1t. The old saying, "you get what you pay for", is correct in this case. When I first got it I was really happy. The screen was bright, it had the lasted OS and it 'seemed' like I had a winner phone. Its not until you use them out in the firld that you see thier many weaknesses. Other family members have different phones but use the same carrier. They all get great reception. The goophone often says there is not carrier detected. It has a very weak signal detection. WiFi is equally weak and often drops out, but when I use other phones in the same position they preform well. I use the google navigation all the time, but on the Goophone it struggles to get a GPS signal. My old phone was heaps better than this phone. A real Note 3 can send infra red signal so you can use it as a TV remote. The goo phone does not has this option. A real Note 3 can plug into a TV and display on it. The Goo phone cannot do this. Essentially it looks like a real Note 3 and yet it has no balls to do anything. I'm throroughly pissed off at myself for wasting good money on this bit of sh1t. My daugher just bought a chinese phone that isnt a copy of any thing, and yet it out preforms this crao Goophone. I you still buy one after reading my review, I have no sympathy for you. BTW they offer a guarantee, but its not until you buy the phone that you read that the guarantee doesnt cover a phones weak signal.

Why, the iPhone, of course. All smartphones are copies of the iPhone, even ones like the F700 which came before it.

C'mon Ted. You know the note 3 copied the iPhones screen size, resolution, battery life, and overall size ;)

Yes, the company has recently made phones like Note III or S4, before there were S3, S duos... Same question here, there are copies of which phone ?

And no company has ever copied any other company in existence... It all makes sense now! I think you've enlightened us. Cool story, bro. You got your hours of fame on the internet.

If it weren't for one company to copy another I don't think we would be here... We humans are prime example we are copies of one another it's OK to copy this isn't a test it's business on how to make money would you not be the first to copy any company if made you millions I sure would be thank you come again

I still wonder how they're not getting sued and harrassed non-stop. Loophole in their country's system? Silly workaround? It's intriguing me.

That kind of performance on a low end, generic device, yet Android haters still claim that it is laggy, stuttery, force closes and reboots.
