You have seen the iPhone clone GooPhone, HTC One fans, meet the HDC One
It was just last month that we saw the first clone of the HTC One before the handset was even announced. The copycats at GooPhone, known for making some pretty impressive copies of Apple products among others, had renderings of the GooPhone One out with a list of anticipated specifications.

Enter the HDC One, another interesting and accurate looking clone with a bargain basement price in China. Forgone are the aluminum body, 1080p display and Qualcomm CPU.

In this bad boy, you get plastic, a middle of the road 720 display and a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek processor. You also have to make do with 1GB of RAM and unlike many other clones from China, this device does not support dual-SIM cards.

Ultrapixel camera? Forget it. There is an 8MP shooter on the back and a front facing 2MP camera. There is not much of a battery on board either, a 1,600mAh cell is there to provide some power. On the plus side, Android 4.2.1 is on board. How much will the HDC One cost? Only $160. Of course, there are a heap of compromises with the deal, but as you can see from the pictures, outwardly speaking, that is one impressive copy.

The only other caveat we can offer is that this device will apparently be going on sale in China on April 1st, so remember the saying about a fool and his money.

Buy it. Fool someone by selling it as "original" htc one. Then buy Original HTC One. Winning.

you wrong dude the HTC camera is best at night shot and this is a big start for HTC next year when they put 8 or 13 ultra mp camera you will shut your pie after seeing what is ultra camera is. any company when they start in a new technlogy they start small and then go bigger over time no one can go from first all the way. take this as beta to see and test it and then improve it and all people like you will shut there mouth next year this time around.

the cam can only shot in auto modus no manuel tweeking (iso etc.) the pics have poor quality and night shots arent as good as ur saying lol if u compare it to other flagshipphones! we will see what the future will bring but now its not as great as u think my friend i bet ur the one of the people who says that a voice assistent is "gimmick" bro that is beta too just wait 10 years lol so dont tell me anything untill its good but now its poor and that matters! but still the htc is a very good phone but the most complete phone at the moment is the s4 hands down! sorry 4 my bad english

ahm no im not a fanboy.. i have the note 2 too i dont lie to myself lol why should i? when it comes to design - winner is htc one (s4 isnĀ“t ugly at all) when it comes to sound - winner is htc one when it comes to camera - winner is s4 when it comes to software - winner is s4 when it comes to connectivity - winner is s4 when it comes to hwardpower - winner is s4 when it comes to battery - winner is s4 when it comes to display - ur own preferenc will decide (i love amoled) so what are u talking about? any test i have read s4 had the better endpoints (on phonearena for example 9.1 point htc one 9.3 s4) oh and dont forget that the s4 has an 5 inch display and the htc one a 4,7 but the s4 is smaler and thinner.. ;-) but yes if u like and want the htc one buy it u do nothing wrong.. both devices are highend and the best at the moment sorry 4 the bad english xD

LOL Yeah right.... I have actually never seen this many deal breaking flaws in a flagship handset since the HTC One X. That said, I feel that the size of the Note is a deal breaker for me as well.

Quad Core, 720p, 1GB ram, 8 + 2 MP. Well damn, this might as well be a flagship Windows Phone. (Microsoft, if you are reading this, try to appreciate the weight of my statement. I am a WP fan, but you always make me hesitate to sign 2 year agreements for cellular service with your devices here in the U.S. Phones become obsolete quickly, but don't give me an obsolete phone before I even sign my contract. Allow and push your OEMs to try harder.)

Hey. They got the home button right.

Posts: 6474; Member since: Jan 28, 2013

Lol the funny thing is that it looks so much better and would work so much better like that instead of having that stupid HTC logo where the home button should be.

I agree with you, the decision of placing the HTC logo in the middle was borderline stupid..

the price tag of this phone is should be the standard for all phones. I mean the cost to manufacturer a smart phone (most phones: iphone,blackberry,samsung,etc) is not even $250. Yet we pay well over $700 for a smart phone every year......

You are correct, to purchase a "phone" for $700 just pure craziness. Usually, I purchase last or year before best model, either through Amazon or Ebay. As mentioned in the article a fool and its money.......soon are parted.
