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