Samsung Galaxy S8 (China Version) Is A Clone Worth $100
With how popular the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus right now, it's no wonder that there will be some companies producing its own version of the said devices. Apparently, there is a new cloned Galaxy S8 smartphone that is made in China which features a design almost similar to the original one.
The Design And Features
The fake Galaxy S8 phone itself has a sleek design that is heavy, thicker and prone to smudges. It also has a SIM and microSD card tray slot. At the front, it has many sensors, including an iris scanner which works but doesn't really work like an iris scanner. It's probably some kind of a face or picture recognition scanner of some sort.
At the back, it features a rear camera, flash unit, heart rate sensor, a Samsung logo and large FCC labels printed on the back. It also has a touch ID sensor that doesn't actually work. In addition, the back casing can be easily removed. In the packaging label, it claims to have a wireless charging feature which of course doesn't work as well.
It features a LCD Quad HD display with a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. As for its display design, it has a think black strip both on top and bottom to make it look curved. Furthermore, it has a virtual home button. Speaking of that, the capacitive keys can be hidden similar to the Xiaomi Mi Mix.
It also has always-on display for its timer. However, compared to an AMOLED display, only the pixels with the timer is lit, while on the fake Galaxy S8, given that it features a LCD display, the whole screen is lit up.
The OS, Internal Memory And Camera
It runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and has 64 GB with 4 GB of RAM. For performance, it had a score of 21,542 on the AnTuTu benchmark and it easily heats up. In fact, during the video unboxing review, it had 106 Fahrenheit.
Though the packaging label claims it has a 16 MP rear camera, it was actually only 12.6 MP. In the camera app, you don't really get a setting for what quality you want. Instead, you only have Low, Medium, High, and Fine. As for the picture size, there are two options available, 6M pixels and 9M pixels. Lastly, for the video recording, it's fuzzy and it won't record under the Fine video quality.
