Keepin’ it real fake: the Star S5 Butterfly clones its HTC namesake, skips the good part

Keepin' it real fake the Star S5 Butterfly clones its HTC namesake, skips the good part

If you’re going to engage in KIRF-ology, you could certainly do worse than HTC’s lovely 5-inch slab of unibody plastic, the Butterfly. But if you want to sell it for $222.00, certain niceties have to go out the window — like the signature 1080P screen, for instance. Star’s slipped a 720P unit in there instead, while also downgrading the RAM to 1GB and swapping out Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz quad-core CPU for a cheaper MediaTek model. The Chinese cloner’s at least kept the other specs real, matching the kosher model’s 8-megapixel rear and 3-megapixel front cameras, dual-sim option, SD card expansion slot and Android 4.2 software. Of course, nothing keeps costs down like not having to pay a designer — and knowing that most of that pesky marketing’s already been done for you.
