Question [Q] SAMSONG Galaxy S5 Mini SM9006V CLONE

Hello guys i dont know, i have been searching all over google and i cannot find anything that helps me weel the truth is i dont understand much of rooting and roms etc etc... I know little... So its the following i have bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 mini SM-9006V from fastcardtech and the phone has numerous problems:

- Unlocking by sliding to the menu not working only by camera icon.
- Contacts get all messed up when i scroll down
- Youtube videos wont play
- Phone is too Slow

So my question is: "Is there any tutorial on how to install a rom for this clone ? "

I need a good rom for this chinese phone compatible with its model and a tutorial on how to do this ?

Sorry if i posted this on wrong section. And sorry for my bad english...

There is no support here for clones. It probably has a MediaTek chipset, in which case it won't be compatible with anything in the S5 forums.

Don`t know what you payed for the device but its money wasted imo Better save up a bit longer and get a proper phone.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Nah it's valid. He put money into a device that has zero support from the company. Unless he spent less than $100 USD, he might as well have gotten a low end device with similar specs that actually comes with support from the company.
Previous devices:

HTC Incredible S S710e (Eventually stopped turning on)

Nexus 7 2012 (Half the screen stopped responding to touch after leaving it for 2 months, also has weird marks on bezel, no idea from where)

Sony Xperia Z C6603 (Passed it down to family member, I actually hated this device)

Current devices:

Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900I

A good phone for you is Galaxy S3 Mini, but, why do you bought a clone?

Some people think that clones are very close to the real thing, so they think they are getting a good deal. Maybe scams too.
