We reported earlier that one of the mainland Chinese imitation of the South Korean flagship Phablet in 2013. Now we accidentally got one of these very real, 99% real, pirated model of the Galaxy Note 2.
It seems to us that the phone maker doesnt worry about using directly the brand name of Samsung. The Samsung logo is printed on both sides obviously and it looks real from every angle from far away. No one can easily distinguish between the genuine and the fake product. Except for one thing, the fake one is actually slightly thicker than the originals, which is also barely visible.
As you can see from the above picture, the Samsung logo is clearly visible. But if you pay attention, you will find that the logo at the top of the screen is a bit misplaced and with solid color, unlike the shiny silver printing on the original one. However, what’s funny about the colour of this note 2 is that it lacks the texture that the original one has. Therefore, if you look close to it, you will find out this unknown color which us not availavle anywhere.
The menu and back button are just like the really one. But if you are aware, you will find that the lights are not concentrated. Instead, the light seems to come from the home button’s direction. Therefore, the production quality is not as good as the original one. Well, that’s to be expected. If you pull the S-Pen out, the difference is substantial. You will find the s-pen doesn’t work on the screen with all those floating functions and pointers. Also the S-pen is merely a stylus packaged with the shape of an s-pen.
Indeed, this gadget is as fast as the Note 2 from Samsung, so if you get this fake one, you may not be able to differentiate between this and the original one.
We used the antutu benchmark software on this fake product and find out it has the same model name as the original one which is GT-N7100, equivalent to the 3G version of the Note 2.
