Alternative or clone, whatever the Orientphone S5 is it is no coincidence that it shares it’s appearance with the Galaxy S5, only at a lower $200, unlocked price point.
I’m not personally a fan of clone Android phones, but I can certainly understand the appeal especially when devices like the OrientPhone S5 are available with specs enough to make similar priced phones blush with embarrassment.
The main lure of the S5 will be it’s $200 price tag and Galaxy S5 design, but looking past those, we get some interesting hardware choices thrown in too. A “super sensitive” 5.2-inch 1080 FHD display with Corning Gorilla glass, octacore MT6592 processor, 2GB RAM, dual SIM , and 13 mega-pixel rear camera are right up their with phones costing considerably more.
Specifications list the phone as running Android 4.2 with Google Play services, fingers crossed it won’t be long before Android 4.4 Kitkat is made available as an update.
What do you think of this S5 wannabe, and clones in general?
