    Sorry if this is the wrong section (please mods move it if it's not the right one)Sorry if this is the wrong section (please mods move it if it's not the right one)



    You know..im talking about the clones of the big brands, which have really walked a long way and now i see that they got much better than back in the days.
    However let's get to the topic.

    I'm about to order HDC S6(that's copy of the samsung s6)

    Im planning to buy the phone from DHGate as the price ranges from 80$-120$.
    Anyone ever bought that phone?Saw some great reviews up in youtube,I mean it's clear that they are not even close
    to the phones they try to replicate..but for that price you get pretty "decent" phone..
    Also in the pictures of the phone there is no original logo..which is no problem for me,but after contacting few sellers,all of them
    say that their phones have original logo and they don't show it on the photos because DHGate's policy doesn't allow it..

    Im little bit worried how the customs will find this..i mean S6 for about 100$,won't it be suspicious .
    But some of the sellers claim that they have "special routes"(that's exactly what they told me),and should present no problem.
    I have contacted users that have positive feedback.
    They said they have their own methods of declaration and etc..,

    But anyway if the product gets caught,I have nothing to do with it right?
    I mean i will clearly provide information on the product that i bought and in the offer the original logo,so it's not my fault that
    the seller sent an phone with logo?


    So my question summed up is:Will I have any problems with customs and whats the worst scenario,and anyone here ever bought that phone is it good?

    Customs may or may not give you a headache.

    That depends largely on where to and how many.

    You as the importer are responsible, period.

    Worse scenario again depends on how many and where to.

    Let's say Germany for example. They most likely will confiscate even a single unit, send it to Samsung and their legal department will send you a nice letter.

    Send it to Indonesia and you will probably pay a small bribe and be done with it.

    Send it to Italy and it may never get to you, same goes for Russia.

    Send it to Brazil and your bribe will be much larger.

    Get my point ?




    And, around 100 bucks for a S6 clone is way to much.

    I think you will be left disappointed. They are all shit. Most of them look the part, but are complete shit on the inside.

    I remember a few years ago a guy round mine got loads of blag iPhones from there. He sold them for about £150 each, he got rid of them real fast but the complaints came in even faster lol. They were crap!

    As for customs loads of people buy from there and sell here on eBay. Those sellers know what they are doing when sending here. Some list them as gifts.

    Im talking about HDC S6 and Goophone S6.
    I believe you know that brands.
    I of course don't expect the same quality as S6,but still look somehow decent according to youtube videos you can check 'em out there..

    I think they are made using parts from the other chineese brands like ZTE,Huaweii,Xiaomi and etc.,m

    However if the phone has any troubles with customs,I can always provide the link of the offer I bought which clearly show that the phone there has no logo
    and it's not my fault that the seller sent one with logo...I guess the sellers gonna get in trouble not me..

    You think Samsung and CBP will go after some seller in China when you are so much easier to trouble ?

    Grow up dude and READ before you do. Shit is shipped internationally to you so you are the importer and hence the one accountable for it.

    these clones are all big trouble really, they generally start falling apart very quickly
