The Best iPhone 4 Knockoff Yet (with video!)June 16, 2011 | by: Chris Chang | Android Knockoffs |
You might not believe it but this is the best iPhone 4 knockoff on Earth. We have seen several iPhone knockoffs since the day we started this phenomenal blog, and we can say that 8 out of 10 iPhone knockoffs are crappy in terms of software, they just do not have the qualifications to compare with iOS.
They look very similar to the real deal, but the user experience is very bad. While we are thinking to give up on looking for an incredible one, we came across an amazing iPhone 4 look-alike which is powered by Android but look and act more like iOS. We are now recommending you to check out an 11-minute-long hands-on video (in English) after the break.
Yeah, it is made in China. We love it. Brought to us by GooApple, this iPhone 4 knockoff, GooApple 3G, is really a pretty badass. The specs? Well, the GooApple web site doesn’t tell us the phone specs, but we managed to check out more information from the Chinese web, and here’s what we know. It boasts a 3.5-inch capacitive display, 3G (WCDMA) connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and sports some form of Qualcomm CPU (probably 600Mhz). In terms of hardware, the phone measures 9.3mm in thickness, exactly the same as Apple’s iPhone 4. It comes with a stainless steel frame, and interestingly, the phone is situated between two glossy panels of aluminosilicate glass. And it has stereo speakers! And finally, the software. It runs Android 2.2 Froyo, and provides handy additional features, such as a WiFi hotspot and Bluetooth / USB tethering. Enough with the words, enjoy the photos below!
Oh, it does not support micro-SIM cards.
From head to toe, both phones look exactly the same, except the logo on the back panel and the SIM card slots. Let’s look at its software whcih has been heavily skinned to look and feel just like Apple’s iOS.
