It’s Attack of the Clones (or “Attack of the Crones”, as a sign I once saw in Japan unfortunately proclaimed).
The Star S5 Butterfly pays tribute to HTC’s identically named beauty (known as the Droid DNA stateside), but with suitably reduced internals. Heck, it only costs $222.99.
The Star S5 Butterfly unashamedly takes its design cue from HTC’s Butterfly, complete with red trim, but the specs are more in line with what we’d expect from the Chinese knock-off scene.
Specifically, the Star S5 Butterfly opts for a 5in 720p display, while the RAM weighs in at a modest 1GB (compared to the HTC J Butterfly’s full 2GB of RAM).
Other Star S5 specs include a quad-core MTK6589 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 8GB internal storage (with microSD), an 8MP rear camera, and 3MP shooter on the front.
For operating system duties, the Star S5 Butterfly assigns Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.1), while there’s also the obligatory dual-SIM action that’s typical of Chinese smartphones.
And that’s the Star S5 Butterfly. Amazing.
