HDC Beloved Honey a dual quad-core phone or is it ‘shenanigans’?


According to (highly dubious) sources the HDC Beloved Honey boast 2 x quad-core MT6582 processors to create a makeshift octa-core phone, we are calling ‘Shenanigans’!

This review (posted by a site owned by another with a rather poor honesty rating) claims that the latest HDC phone, the Beloved Honey, is a new breed of 8-core phone! Rather than just using an 8-core MT6592 processor like others the review claims the phone uses 2 x MT6582 quad-core chipsets!

We highly doubt this for a number of reasons including price, software issues, compatibility issues with Android, and the fact it just makes no sense what so ever! What is even more strange is the fact that the phone actually looks pretty good and if marketed with accurate hardware specs would likely sell like  ‘hot cakes’!

Anyway back to the ‘review’ which claims the phone also has 2GB RAM, 4GB memory, Android 4.3, 5-inch display, dual 13 mega-pixel cameras and 2500mAh battery for $219. If you do decide to order the HDC do so with a large dose of hope and good will and let us know how it turns out.

Thanks to James for the tip!

    Fastcardtech is the worst mobile phone shop out there. False specs everywhere. It was a waste of internet space devoting an article to them

    Everything else from HDC is legit….. According to HDCmobile.com

    This seems plausable. I guess time will tell. But i must admit, I want one.

    Thanks for censoring my previous comment where I was explaining why a (2x) MT6582 configuration is not feasible.

    This is worst than USSR. Are you afraid of free market or what?

    They are doing this with tablets also and from Taobao, a local online store, it looks like quite a number of people have bought these dual quad core devices. Also using name brands.

    So I need some advice on buying a zoo zp998. Do I buy it from zopo mobile? Or from FCT? On zopomobile I have to preorder it and wait 30 days for quality control I guess and then another week for it to arrive. Should I take the dive or ??

    • December 5, 2013

      I would say don’t by from FCT

    It seems to be too good to be true. It is now listed as $170 at FCT. I am nervous about it telling Android it has 3 GB RAM instead of 2 GB which it really has and telling it has 1080p display instead of 720p that which it really has.

    • March 20, 2014

      So I ended up not buying it.
