    1. I'm going to bought this :)

      Are you take the root and the "case + screen guard" ?

      Delete
    2. Save the money for the root, it can be rooted in seconds like this:

      Screen guard? Sure, why not if it isn't overpriced.

      Delete
    3. Did you do that ?

      And do we have any guarantee with fastcardtech ?

      Delete
    4. Yes, I rooted the phone like that. I THINK FCT has a 12 months warrenty.

      Delete
    5. And did you have the "luxury cristal box" ? (show the description on FCT)

      Delete
    6. No, I don't know what that is?!? I wanted to have mine shipped in a plain "neutral" box.

    7. Look the description of the S4 legends..

    1. I think the sensors are using infrared light.It is in the spectrum that camera can see but human eye not.It's infrared light.

  4. Hello,
    How about the call quality and signal strength with this phone. Please share your experience.
    Thanks

    1. I only made a couple of calls so far, it sounded nice and clear with MY service provider. Signal strenth is "normal" for me, just like any other phone I have.

  10. Hey Colonel,

    erstmal meinen Dank für die tolle Vorstellung von diesem Clone. Das Teil macht wirklich einen sehr guten Eindruck. Meiner bescheidenen Meinung nach das Beste was der Markt derzeit hergibt.

    Was ich aber gerne noch wissen würde: Ist es möglich das Teil mit einem orginal Samsung Akku zu bestücken?

    Auf einem der FASTCARDTECH-Videos kann man sehen das man einen orginal Akku zwar einlegen kann, aber ob das HAndy damit arbeitet, bzw. der Deckel überhaupt noch zugeht wird nicht klar.
    Wenn mich nicht alles täuscht ist der Samsung Akku nämlich ein bisschen dicker!

    Würde mich freuen wenn Du mir da weiterhelfen könntest.

    Übrigens gibt Fastcardtech die CPU Universal5410 Quad Core 1.6GHz an.

    Gruß aus Thailand

    1. Hi :-) Schau mal auf Youtube nach Videos von mayiandjay, in einem seiner Videos zeigt er, daß ein original Akku und Backcover vom S4 passen :-)

    2. Guter Tip, danke.

      Sieht tatsächlich so aus als wenn man den Orginal Akku verwenden kann :-)

  11. Isn't it Exynos 4412 and 2GB real?

    Also, Camera is not real 12.5 pixel? I guess if you compare Samsung Galaxy S3 and this device I still S3 is best right?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Exynos and 2GB are fake specs in the system settings, what I believe is true is what I said in my review video and what I have written above. The 12.5MP are probably also fake, even though the actual OUTPUT are 12.5MP, the pictures don't look good enough for those MP to be real.

      Delete
    2. Thank you for you reply!

      I guess No1. S6 could be better than this? in FCT website they've said that 2GB and Exynos are REAL. but they are BIG Lairs :(

  12. Hi ColonelZap.
    Do you know if HDC S4 Clone has any phone with dual sim chip?Thanks.

    1. Hi :-) RIGHT NOW I don't know any dual sim S4 Clones that are as close to the original like this phone is. Of course there are plenty of dual sim phones out there but they don't "really" look like the original.

    2. I have bought this one, seems for the same brand as your, but a little small(4.8'). But phone is very weird special by android 4.2.9, lol.

    3. Hi :-) It looks similar but it's definitely a different model (different screen size, resolution, probably doesn't have the gesture control).

  13. Hi ColonelZap, i like your reviews. I need to know if the camera main and front are decent quality, because most chinese phones have a bad camera quality, very slow and dark.

    1. Hi :-) You should be able to delete or freeze apps with titanium backup. But be careful! If I were you, I'd just go into the regular system settings - apps - all. There you can disable apps, it's WAY safer than deleting apps.

  17. Hi ColonelZap würdest du das hdc oder ein ZOPO C2 bzw 980 nehmen hättest du ein par vor und nachteile ?

    1. Kann man die Handys vergleichen? Zopo = Dualsim und bessere Auflösung, Legend = single sim, durch die niedrigere Auflösung aber etwas "flotter".

  18. colonel, queria hacerte una pregunta, me gustaria comprar este telefono, vengo de usar un HDC i9300 EX, espero que el cambio se note. El HDC galaxy S4 legend es perfecto clon del Samsung S4 esteticamente? y en sistema android tambien? me refiero a si funciona igual.

    Como ha hecho para al comprarlo en FCT que le traiga los logos de Samsung en la parte de delante la trasera y la bateria? lo ha pedido de alguna forma especial?

    2. Ow ok...but does this hdc come with original Samsung logo and retail box? And how has the gesture control been so far? Is it worth buying?

      Delete
    3. My phone has the logos but I had it delivered in a neutral white box. The guesture control is "fun" but nothing more (if you ask me), it's nothing I really use ;) Worth buying? I think so, it's really a nice phone :-)

      Delete
    4. Great...do all hdc phones have the option of coming with the original logo..like the hdc one?
      And have you managed to root this phone?

      Delete
    5. I don't think all the HDC phones come with logos, HDC is not really a brand, most of the time this is just a fantasy name that some seller use. Rooting wasn't a problem :-)

      Delete
    6. Haha..fantasy..that's good..I guess I just need to specify what I need.thanks
      I also want to know if phones like goophone and zopo are available in versions without any logo at all.

      Delete
    7. No idea about the Zopo or Goophone logos. SOME of the Zopo phones are also sold as "white label" phones under the name of "Hero", I think those phone don't have any logos on them.

      Delete
    8. Ok..thanks a lot...I think i'll ask FCT when I'm ready...how do you root these devices so easily?

  26. Hey, my friend! Nice blog! Very nice!

    But, I have one question about another phone that I saw a few minutes ago on this link: http://www.dhgate.com/product/hand-sensor-air-gestures-s4-i9500-n9500-unlocked/165052165.html#s1-2-1|2390360985

    Looks like your phone, but the screen size is Full HD, CPU is 1.6 GHz and it has a possibility to put a micro SD card of 32gb.

    Have you seen this phone before? I'm not sure about the seller. I know that we can trust on dhgate.com, but about the seller I'm not sure.

    I'll be appreciated if you can give me your opinion about it. =D

    1. Hallo :-) Ich denke nicht, daß Du das EINDEUTIG herausfinden kannst, von diesen Clones sind unzählige Varianten im Unlauf und jeder Händler verpaßt den Dingern seine eigenen Namen. Selbst wenn wir beide ein "echtes" Legend haben sollte, können die Dinger trotzdem total unterschiedliche Hard- und Software haben, die Fabriken ändern permanent ihre Komponenten :-( Wenn ein Kompaß nicht funktioniert, dann ist wahrscheinlich so ein Sensor gar nicht erst verbaut worden.
