ALERT! Not Samsung, Fake Phone!
on January 7, 2015
If you want a REAL Samsung phone I suggest you to read this review.
First of all, I have nothing against Samsung smartphones,
I received this phone yesterday. I put its battery and connected to charge it, everything was ok. Suddenly I realize that the phone stopped charging, and instead it was draining the battery EVEN connected. So, I thought that it was some battery issues.
The first app I tried with this phone was the camera, but it displayed "Camera failed". I downloaded some third party apps of cameras and STILL it didn't work at all. At this point you should be able to understand my frustration, I mean, battery issues AND camera not working? But I decided to give it a chance.
I downloaded a game from the store, the first Temple Run. This game is old, and it doesn't require a lot of RAM or other requirementes, and still, it was UNPLAYABLE, extremely lagging and freezing. The game crashed and returned to the main phone screen.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that in order to install an app from the store, I had to download them TWICE because a weird error didn't allow me to install them.
This phone is supposed to have 768 MB of RAM, but it shows 280~ instead!
Then I connected the phone to my laptop, and rather showing some references to Samsung, it displayed this:
Soon, I realized what was happening. This is not a real Samsung phone, this is a FAKE chinese version.
All made sense! Extremely slow, battery issues, camera not working, installation problems, etc.
If you want a pretty phone just for call and SMS, this is for you! (And you are maybe the dumbest person in the planet because there are better options for simple phones).
I am REALLY surprised on how much this fake version look alike to the original phone.
It comes with earphones, an USB cable, a damn USB travel adapter for wall charging and a stupid "quick starter guide" with references to some weird apps.
Do NOT buy this phone. I can't even understand why it has good reviews and 5 star ratings!!!
