HDC Galaxy Mini i8190 - Specs Review: 4-inch Galaxy S3 Mini Clone for just $95

Here's another HDC knock-off which might interest you, the HDC Galaxy S3 Mini. It is basically an S3 Mini clone. The HDC Galaxy S3 Mini i8190 sports a 4-inch screen, just like the real S3 Mini, and overall its pretty much similar in terms of the looks.

The HDC Galaxy S3 Mini i8190 is equipped with a single-core processor, MT6575, clocked at 1GHz. It is slated with a 4 inches screen of WVGA 800*480 pixels in resolution. It is packed with 256MB of RAM, and 256MB of internal storage. The HDC Galaxy S3 Mini i8190 runs on Android 2.3.6 OS out of the box and has a skinned TouchWiz UI (same UI with the Samsung Galaxy S3 phone) which makes it more difficult to tell that it is just a knock-off.

This S3 Mini clone, just doesnt have that SAMSUNG logo, but as far as I know you can request FCT to put the logo if ever you want to buy from them. Overall, for its pricing, I can say that this one is already a good buy. Its 1GHz processor is able to handle HD gaming already, plus it gives a feel of a premium phone.
