iPhone 5 vs Fake iPhone 5

Kuwaitiful - Instead of comparing the iPhone 5 with competitor devices I thought this comparison deserved more publicity. Don’t mean to burst Apple’s bubble but some of you are better off getting a fake iPhone 5. For one it has better overall specs for half the price. No complaints about the operating system since it runs on Android. (Goophone i5, iPhone 5, Phones)

WTF, Fake iPhone 5 seems to be better than the Apple's iPhone 5. Plus it's only $299.

That's Just Sad.

The 16gb iPhone 5 is $199. The fake iPhone does not have LTE

LTE is all it takes for you?

spec wise the fake phone is better than its competitor for a fraction of the cost.

$199 on an overpriced contract! not $199 to be purchased offline.

Yep I would have to agree the fake was way better...I guess Apple should start listening to the rumor before they start building the next iPhone.

What is with that price? 850 dollars? That's outrageous for a phone.

No contract phones are very expensive usually.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1121d ago
An 850$ price point for such a small item though, there are so many things in that price range I could compare it to that would be better worth the money spent.

When I bought my Nexus One back in the hay days (no contract), I paid about close to $700 for it. Either way (contract or none) you end up paying a lot. With a contract, they make back their money when your phone bill comes.

no contract phone will cost 650

@fatstar its a knockoff phone of course its going to be cheaper.
How can you be excited about knockoff iOS 6

out done by your shadow clone.

Both are made in China.
Looks like a near perfect clone to me.

guess they got the idea at foxconn

Good lord, that's alot of money!
I mean, I understand that it's the non-contract price, but that's too much money to pay outside of an contract.
Remember, you will be barred from using MANY of its stores, features, apps, etc., because you would need to be on-contract to reap the perks.

Now, if it was open-source, it would've been a huge plus...
But the price is still questionable.

...where's the augmented reality feature & 3D protruding image feature...?
THAT'S worth an $850 price tag, easy!
