OrientPhone S4 Advanced, the ultimate Chinese Samsung Galaxy S4 alternative?

A 1080 display, 2GB RAM, 32GB memory, dual SIM support and powerful 1.5Ghz quad-core processor could make the OrientPhone S4 Advanced the ultimate Galaxy S4 alternative.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is no doubt one of the best Android smartphones to go on sale this year. It’s sleek design, great screen, powerful processor and smart gesture controls make the S4 a joy to use and one of the most wanted phones to date, but there is a problem! The price! The S4 is a great phone but the price (off contract or with the monthly fees) makes it an expensive device to own, so what are the alternatives?

Gizchina News of the week

One alternative is the OrientPhone S4 Advanced, advanced meaning it has 2GB RAM, 32GB memory and updated camera software which enhances the front camera to 8 mega-pixels and the rear to 18MP! (the actual sensors are 5MP front and 13MP rear). A 5-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display offers great all round viewing and a powerful 1.5Ghz MT6589T chipset gives the S4 look-a-like more than enough grunt for all modern applications!

Dual SIM cards and an SD card slot make up the phone which is designed to look like the real Samsung Galaxy S4 phone.

A quick search around the internet shows that an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S4 can cost as much as $720 where as an unlocked OrientPhone S4 with dual SIM is on sale for only $293!

    Same phone as Tengda S4?

    I think Tengda S4 use some similar Model as OrientPhone S4.

    Looks like any other. And antutu is on s3 level. Probably 9-10mm with thicker bazel. And not one proprietary feature.

    The only one that did anything different is Star and that demonstrated gesture features of their own.

    I would stick to zopo and the rest since they have a community to back you up when you need help, upgrades and tweaks.

    Orientmall buys in ‘white label’ and brand it with there own label.
    And it looks like your hunch is correct

    1: Page identification:
    Tengda S4 Smartphone – Best Galaxy S4 Alternative – MTK6589T Quad core 5.0 Inch 1080P FHD IPS Screen Android 4.2 18.0MP Camera

    2: If you do a search on Tengda S4 it also shows the Oriendphone as result.

    If you wanna buy it, get the cheapest deal I’d say.
