Would you buy the No.1 N3? A Galaxy Note 3 not from Samsung

Chinese phone maker Nu.1 have released full details of their N3, a phablet which looks remarkably like the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 3!

We have seen the N3 in a number of spy photos, but this is the first time we have had the full N3 specifications to browse over. Being a lower cost model No.1 have opted for a quad-core MT6589 Mediatek chip in their version of the Note, something which Samsung have also opted to do with future phones. The N3 also comes with either 1GB-2GB RAM, up to 32GB memory, 13 mega-pixel F2.2 rear camera, NFC and more.

The small 2800mAh battery is the only real grey area we can see in the N3, but it being a removable unit and the phone packing features such as dual SIM support, OTG, MHL and costing significantly less we expect the phablet to ship well.

Pricing and availability

No.1 phones have managed to be popular with international Chinese phone fans, however they also seem to manage to keep supply steady making it one of the simpler phone brands to get your hands on.

Pricing hasn’t been announced but we hope the base version with 1GB RAM and 8GB memory will go on sale for around 1399 Yuan where as the top-of-the-range model should be around 1699 Yuan.

    If get the device with 2 GB RAM and internal 32 GB space and with the additional capability of adding an external 32/64 GB SD Card I would definitely buy it, but just for satisfaction I would love to play with the device for a week or two before making that decision

    Will it be a fraud like the no 1.pad?
    Are they still faking 2core cpu to a 4core cpu?
    Saying it has usb port but it is propiatary?

    I bought a Note 2 knock off. It is not real good. I like the size. For the price I may try a note 3 knock off. Knock offs get better all the time.
