Top 10 clone phones with dual sim from China – March Edition


top 10 clones china march

We might not like it, but clone, and knock off phones are one of the reasons Chinese phones are so famous (infamous), Here are our top 10 dual clone phones from China.

To be a top clone

The requirements of being a top clone are simple:

  • Is the clone similar enough to be passed of as the real thing?
  • Is the clone cheaper?
  • Is it good value for money?

We haven’t listed any phones here which have fake branding, only those devices which have the look of more expensive products from other brands.

GooPhone S5 – Samsung Galaxy S5 Clone

goophone s5

Let’s start with the GooPhone S3 which attempts to be the low-cost alternative too the all new Samsung Galaxy S5. The GooPhone S5 has the same ‘band aid’ look which is loathed by many Samsung fans and will eventually come in a range of colours (including band-aid brown).

Pricing is just $300 off contract and unlocked, not a bad price for a phone with a 5-inch FHD 1080P display, 2.0Ghz octacore Mediatek processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB memory and 13 mega-pixel camera. The GooPhone S5 also has dual SIM support, Google Play and room for an SD card.

Star HD5000 – Xiaomi Hongmi Clone

Ok so the Star HD5000 isn’t an out and out knock off of the Xiaomi Hongmi, the sides and rear are slightly different, but the face of the phone is exactly the same! Star have also gone down the same low-cost, big value route as Xiaomi by offering this 5-inch 720p phone for just $140 (international price) with a quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, SD card bay and dual SIM support.

OrientPhone One Max – HTC One clone

$245 is the asking price for this rather impressive metallic bodied HTC One knock-off. The One Max has been on sale for a few months now and runs a quad-core 1.5Ghz MT6589T processor, 2GB RAM, 5-inch FHD display, dual-sim and 8 mega-pixel rear camera. Other features include MHT and OTG.

No.1 S7 – Galaxy S5 clone

no 1 s7 galaxy s 5 clone

No.1 first told us that they planned to launch the No.1 S7 way back in January. Just this past week they got in touch and told us the phone was on the way and even provided photo shopped Galaxy S5 photos to ‘prove’ it (in true knock of factory fashion). Specs are unclear but they have told us their Galaxy S5 clone will run an octacore MT6592 processor and have a 16 mega-pixel main camera, if this is true then it will be a first!

GooPhone X3 – Vivo X3S clone

goophone x3 vivo x3s clone

To make this list it would have been quite easy just to copy and past the entire GooPhone website! This time GooPhone have cloned Vivo, a premier Chinese phone maker (and big brother to Oppo). The GooPhone X3 is a clone of the Vivo X3S and in terms of most hardware is on par. The display is a 5-inch 720p unit, a 1.7Ghz octacore processor runs the phone, but the GooPhone has 2GB RAM rather than the Vivo’s 1GB.

Jiake P6 – Huawei Ascend P6 clone

Jiake P6 Review: Cons outweigh pros

Another clone of a popular Chinese phone. The [easyazon_link asin=”B00HVWGJE6″ locale=”UK” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”gizchicom-21″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Jiake P6[/easyazon_link] has the same stylish design as the Huawei Ascend P6, but only costs $180. Like many phones of this price the Jiake P6 is powered by the excellent quad-core MT6582 chipset with 1GB RAM, there is also a 5-inch 720p display and space for dual sim cards and a memory card!

Neken N6+ – Oppo Find 5 clone

neken n6

The Neken N6 has been on sale for a while now, but the Neken N6+ is the all new octacore fire-breathing version, which just so happens to look like the Oppo Find 5. Other features of this $272 smartphone include a 5-inch 1080p OGS display, 2GB RAM, 5 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear and dual sim support.

GooPhone N3 – Samsung Galaxy Note 3 clone

Octacore goophone n3 review

Another Samsung clone, and another entry to the list by GooPhone. The octacore Goophone N3 has a 5.7-inch 1080 display, 2GB RAM and 13 mega-pixel main camera, and really impressed us during our review. Pricing is $239.99 for the dual sim unlocked Note 3 clone.

Jiake X3S – Vivo X3S clone

jiake x3s

Vivo get cloned again and this time it is Jiake taking a crack at the Vivo X3S. Like the GooPhone above, the Jiake X3S has a 5-inch OGS 720p display, 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, and 1.7Ghz octacore Mediatek processor. The Jiake isn’t as thin as the real Vivo phone but does get space for dual sim, micro SD and has a removable battery.

GooPhone M3 – Xiaomi Mi3 clone

goophone m3

If you’re getting cloned it is a sign that you are now part of the big time. So for Goophone to target the Xiaomi Mi3 is a sort of back-handed compliment. The GooPhone M3 doesn’t have the same high-end hardware as the Xiaomi, but it only cost $99 so we can cut it some slack. Main features are a super slim alloy body, 5-inch display, and 1.2Ghz dual-core processor.

Top 10 clone phones with dual sim from China

There are hundreds of other clone phones which could have made it on the list including the new Smartnote X1 which is a clone of the Vivo X3S, and the GooPhone M8 a knock off version of the unreleased HTC One 2, that’s not including all the iPhone clones out there.

Which knock off, clone phone do you like? Do you own a clone? What are your thought of Chinese clone companies? Let us know in the comments.

    I really think that they are pretty awesome. But a phone is a phone, brands are brands. I want a good phone with a good price. Rather than a phone that looks like another brand, for the sake of having a brand named looking product.

    Still good prices, phones, but for the price, you could probably get a better phone with better hardware/same hardware for less.

      I’m Agree with You Jeremy. Brands spends a lot of money on design research, Chinese manufacture just used that for free :-). Now best ideas and best practice is combined and we get a Nice looking devices on more phone makers with very interesting hardware specs. What i waiting to test is iocean x8, and the yesterday news : Hasee X50 😉

  2. March 7, 2014

    Very good article Andi.

    Keep them coming 😉

    You should include some S4 clones with the MTK6592 though.

    I think I’ll never ever buy one. Goophone and No. 1 are probably abit better than the other clone makers quality wise, but really if they exerted their efforts in being original instead of being as 1:1 a replica as possible, they’d make good desirable phones. They’ll always have a market though,as long as cheap people want to look expensive.

    Please correct: OrientPhone One Max has an 8 mega-pixel FRONT camera (and a 13 MP rear camera btw) and other features include MHL rather than MHT, thanks.

    I like the HiLive P6x, it’s another Huawei P6 clone, with far better specs. I found it after that topic the other day about the HiLive Hi16 (Note 3 clone). It basically has the same specs (2.0 GHz 8-core, 2/32GB) but with a 6 inch screen.
    I’m waiting for the Iocean X8, but it’s taking so long!! So, might go for this P6x

    Why does goophone not list the phone’s physical measurements? Not even on their own website? That’s just dumb. How do I know if I am getting an 7 mm or 10 mm phone? Or a nice compact phone or a typical chinese super tall phone?

    It would be good if you could also review the OS. I mean, if you like touchwiz (wonder if any would) it would be good to know that the S5 clones are also having same OS as touchwiz. I would be enthusiast to read that the HTC One clone has a stock, sleek, superfast Android 4.2 running and not some blotched Sense-like version..
    Perhaps reduce to 5 models..My 2 cents 🙂

    I have a Goophone N3 and it is not an exact clone of a Note 3, it is slightly bigger but quite thin. It is an amazing phone for the price, great photo’s and video, downloads APS quickly and very nice to use. My wife uses a No1 Note 3 clone and that is also good, but the headphone socket does not work and never did…it would cost too much to send it back to China and also pay for the return postage. Overall they are better than our HTC phones.

      Hi I want to buy the Note3 or G5 clone. When they say 3g does that mean 4g does not work on it also. Do the phones come with 16 or 32 sdcard or do they mean that they can fit on the phone. Sorry I don’t know much about phones and this is the first time i’m buying a phone online. Also I have Tmobile and lost my phone will they give me a card for the unlocked clone when i bring it to the store or do i have to buy the card before buying the phone.

        The reason “Dave” never replied to you is because he’s a “shill”. Notice how he praises the devices, but then adds just a slight con, which notes that the “headset socket” does not work? That’s a common theme in “shilling” for these “phonies”. Most of the knockoffs will be the root cause of many head, neck and face cancers within the next 15 years.

        IF Dave is real, he’s probably got money invested in some shanzhai firm/company…

        You asked about 4g, most global//international GSM phones will not work on US LTE frequencies, but you will have H+ or H- or just H, which is HSPA and still pretty fast at the usual 21Mbps,,,, 4g isn’t actually real yet, 4g is 1Gbps,,, LTE is 100Mbps, that’s why 4G LTE phones are market’d with that “label” by ATT, TMobile, etc, as a way of saying, “HEY, OVER HERE, WE HAVE THE FAST 4G AVAILABLE, FASTED HSPA.

        ALSO if you see fastest HSPA that’s because so many consumers are buying global//international unlocked phones due to the cheap prices.

        Anyways, I hope you lucked out in whatever you decided to get….

      Knockoffs are inferior in every way. These specs don’t match up because of usage of bad hardwares.
