HDC is obviously taking the knock-off market into a newer level, with all the impressive and affordable Samsung Galaxy clones we’ve seen so far, a new addition surfaces as the HDC Galaxy S5 Lte, with an accompanying Galaxy Gear clone as well. The price for the unit alone is just $139, which packs a bang-for-the-bucks, perfect-looking S5 clone.
The HDC Galaxy S5 Lte is equipped with the MTK6582 Quad Core processor that is clocked at 1.3Ghz. It has 5.1 inches of IPS display and it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The Android version shows as Android 4.4.2 but it is actually just Android 4.2. Not a real issue as the Jelly Bean OS is satisfying enough for the performance and optimizations in the whole Android system. The altered Android version that is displayed is just for show, for a more believable KitKat S5 clone.
The HDC Galaxy S5 Lte, is not an LTE variant, but rather a “lite” version with cheaper price tag as compared with the other HDC Galaxy S5 clones series. However, even though some of the specifications were leveled down a bit for cost-cutting, it still doesnt makes itself inferior to other Chinese phones at the same or near its price-point bracket.
The MTK6582 Quad Core processor at 1.3Ghz is powerful enough for a smooth experience even at HD gaming and high quality multimedia playback. The system shows a Exynos 4412 Quad Core processor, just for show and a more believable Galaxy S5 knock-off.
At 5.1 inches display, the screen resolution is qHD, which is a 960×540 pixels of IPS display; still it doesnt looks bad at all. The display details managed to stay crisp and colors are just vivid. For its price it is acceptable, meanwhile the system indicates a 1920×1080 pixels display just for show again.
The camera on the HDC Galaxy S5 Lte is a 15.1 megapixels CMOS shooter on the rear which supports Dual Camera mode (its a feature on the real S5 that lets you shoot stills or images using the front and rear cameras simultaneously). The front camera is a 4.9MP snapper.
This S5 clone is a single-SIM Android phone, with a micro-SIM card slot. It has support for either GSM or WCDMA, and is totally unlocked for any carriers worldwide as long as any of the frequency is supported by the network: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz + WCDMA 850/2100MHz.
This phone has GPRS/EDGE/HSPA, Bluetooth 4.0 + HID, WiFi Display, WiFi Direct, 5GHz WiFi, USB 3.0, GPS + GLONASS, and AGPS to add.
The battery on the HDC Galaxy S5 Lte (SM-G900) is a 2800mAh Li-ion battery, which is guaranteed to last for more than a day of a single charging time. It is expected to have up to 200 hours of standby time.
Talking about the memory, the HDC Galaxy S5 Lte (SM-G900) comes with the standard 1GB of RAM which is already enough to give you the seamless multitasking experience. The internal storage is 4GB which can still be expanded with a micro-SD card of up to 32GB in capacity.
