Sorry i forgot one phone:

Star B92M – similar specification to HDC Galaxy S3 i9300 EX (IPS HD, 1 GB RAM, 12 mp, Dual core) but cost slightly more @ $202.

Hello there, I’ve compiled all the currently sold Galaxy S3 i9300 Clones to make a comparison in terms of specs on determining what is the best value you can get for your money.

Performance:

Most of the clones presented are powered by MTK6577 Dual Core processor, fast, stable, and dependable CPU that is currently still enough to play the latest games, multitasking and multimedia. A quad core powered S3 clone would be nice unfortunately, the model has been out of stock for quite some time. I would certainly go for a quad core any day, but for everyday use, and moderate internet usage and multimedia use, dual core is more than enough.

GPU:

PowerVR SGX 531 Ultra, more than enough to handle the most demanding games available in the market

Memory:

Considering that most of the applications available now are more demanding, as well as phones now readily adapt multitasking features. The previous 512 MB RAM is no longer enough, 1 GB is now the recommended standard for memory specifications for a much smoother performance. Although, 2 GB is coming, only a limited number of phones most of which are still out of stock offer this to their models.

Operating System

Android 4.0 , a stable fast, operating system which was popular a year ago. However, currently Jellybean has been adopted, although there are limitations in terms of applications available, the new OS offers a much smoother performance and optimization as well as new goodies not available with previous generations.

Display:

IPS HD Displays @ 1280 x 720 pixels provides unparallel clarity of color production, representation, contrast, and is a bonus when using in multimedia or web browsing. Additionally, improved legibility especially when reading ebooks and exposed to sunlight. QHD is also nice display but when compared to IPS, the later is clearly much better.

Camera:

I’m currently using HDC Galaxy S3 i9300 EX (extreme edition), it  has 12 megapixel camera, from my experience, the camera is average and i’m quite disappointed with the quality. Although most china phones, especially clones don’t excel when it comes to camera shooters. Therefore, either way you choose 8 or 12 megapixel, they don’t differ as much.

Battery:

The original Galaxy S3 had a battery capacity of 2100mAh, considering that most clones offer much more, if you are a power user, it is recommended to have higher than 2000mAh battery for a much practical use of the phone

Price:

Now comes the hard part, Where can i get the most value?

When it comes to features and the most you can get for your money

Goophone S3 Pro, priced @ @169.99 – BEST VALUE!!!, IPS HD Display, 1 GB RAM and Dual Core.

HDC Galaxy S3 G9300, 1 GB RAM, Android 4.1 Jellybean, although only QHD Display, it more than makes up for the other features.

HDC Galaxy S3 i9300 EX, priced @ $195, IPS HD Display, 1 GB RAM, 12 megapixel camera

For ENTHUSIAST

HDC Galaxy S3 i9300 Quad Core, priced @ $290, unfortunately, OUT OF STOCK

CHEAPEST:

HDC Galaxy S3 i9377, priced @ $135, certainly the most affordable among the group, if you’re on a budget you can get this mobile and you’ll be getting a full featured dual core smartphone.

LARGEST BATTERY:

HDC Galaxy S3 S9380, priced @ $159, with a battery pack of 2500mAh, certainly large enough for a full day of heavy use, if you don’t want to carry a charger all day, then the extra juice of this phone will certainly help you last throughout the day.

I have a samsung s3 clone. I did not it was a clone when I bought it. However, I have no idea about it’s specs and cannot find a battery for it. The original S3 battery does not fit. The best match clone I can find online is HDC Galaxy S3 Pro Ultimate but I am not sure.

Any suggestions on where to get batteries?

Thanks,

Hello franz

you can use other batteries for that phone just make sure it has the same voltage, But it mostly has the same amperages, Because there are many models and manufacturers of the Galaxy S3 variant, its often hard to find the specific part especially batteries for that phone. But in your local shop, if they have a similar size battery, you can try to fit it on your phone. Most Galaxy S4 knock offs can fit an original S4 battery but resourcefulness do come in the picture like, a slight modification of the back casing, to fit the battery perfectly.

Best Regards,
Vince
