This is my first encounter with a fake iPhone. However, it is marketing itself as Phone (the iPhone without the i 🙂 ). Anyway, I did a few comparison with a real iPhone and I believe you know the verdict, this fake iPhone sucks!
On first look, it seems to be quite “real”. The weight and the glossy back looks quite impressive. However, the screen resolution is a big give away.
The best part is that it is trying very hard to make itself “looks” like an iPhone, including the wordings. See below.
The wording for a REAL iPhone is “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China”. The FAKE one reads ” Designed by Tvphone in America Assembled in China”. Haha.. quite innovative. The model are also copied,except that the A1241 becomes A1221.
When you see the keyboard, you will “faint” as it is so small. However, I must think that it should be alright as it has a stylus.
And here is the stylus plus its compartment.
Now, lets take a look at the programs. The calculator looks decent.
Don’t expect gyro sensor. It will NOT rotate. Now, lets take a look at the phone pad.
Notice that it has Call1 and Call2? That is the only good point about this phone. It is dual-SIM card and both can work concurrently. Nice… for once.
However, I must again mention. The screen resolution is very bad.
If you are still interested in this fake iPhone, I seriously must warn you that the User Experience is almost zero. It is a resistive screen (no multi-touch) and the software is skin deep only. You will see a lot of Chinese character and the games are from NES simulator and they are really NOT worth mentioning.
What OS? At that point, I just hand over the phone to the person and glad that I am holding on to my HTC Touch HD. Don’t ask me about the price. It is cheap but not worth it.
See this video and you will know.
