Quad-core Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Clone with 5.7-inch display


The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 hasn’t even been launched yet, but that hasn’t prevented China based, Century Electronics Group, from manufacturing a quad-core MT6589 equipped clone!

Clones of Samsung Galaxy Note phablets are ten a penny here in China. Some aren’t worth the plastic they are shoddily slapped together from, while others like this Note 3 clone look like quite the investment!

Marketed simply as the Note 3 and shipped in rather plain box, this Galaxy Note 3 clone looks very similar in design to the GooPhone N2, but rather than using an older dual-core MT6577 CPU this Chinese phablet uses the more powerful and efficient Mediatek MT6589 quad-core chip.

      The best way to avoid mistakes when buying a Chinese phone – buy a Chinese brand phone. It’s brands like Zopo, THL, Star, ZTE, Huawei. They have official websites which published the parameters of their models.

      I like the “buried” display. A very good solution to protect it. Amazing!

        My one year old Star A9220 is still working today, and the display is perfect without any scratch even I never used any screen protector. I can’t guarantee if the new Star N9589 is better than mine, but I want to tell you some thoughts:
        Because I spent last year on it only $170, this year I can think to a quad core with Android 4.2 (I will wait for 4.2 I don’t want 4.1).
        But if would spent for a smartphone last year $500 can I think this year so easy to another smartphone?
        Technology is evolving too fast for me to buy an expensive smartphone so $200 is enough/year. One smarphone/year is maybe too much so I have hopes to keep for two years from now, starting with the new quad.

    I really like these phones but ive had a bad xperience. I bought a Star N8000 form digimaxonline via amazon. It lasted less than 2 months. It got hot while using wifi, then a strip down the touch screen died. I was surprised as Star got great reviews. Im thinking of getting the Xtreamer Aiki a Taiwanese phone. Does anybody have any experience with this phone?

    Has the 4.2.1 been released yet. I would like to get one. Also, How do I find out if it will work on my network? Does anyone use this in the U.S.? I need Virgin Mobile or T-Mobile phone.
