  • iPhone 5S Knockoff Surfaces in China

    It has been rumored that the next generation iPhone is only a few months away, but vendors in Shenzen China decided to create an iPhone 5s of their own which goes on sale starting tomorrow. Meet the GooPhone i5s!

    The GooPhone i5s is a knock-off based on Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and is being sold at a price of $149, contact-free. The first 1,000 buyers will be given a special price of only $99. If Apple were to offer an iPhone 5 at a similar price then we're pretty certain a lot more people would be jumping on the deal in a heartbeat.

    The knock-off iPhone 5S has 3G cellular networking, a 854 by 840 pixel display at four inches, 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and a five megapixel camera located on the back and runs a 1GHz MediaTek MT6577 dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM.

    Based on the video shown, the GooPhone i5s is not as laggy as one would expect for the specs and price you could buy it at- which came as a surprise, but still slow at times. The slowness should be somewhat expected though due to the specs being far from close to what is found in current iPhones. The GooPhone i5s is available over at Android-sale.com for those of you who may be interested in purchasing it. Buyers beware as you’ll end up with what you pay for, a cheap knockoff!

Not only does it inform users of the knockoff, it goes as far as telling us where we can purchase it. This seems like quite the double standard, given that any mention of piracy is strictly forbidden and HEAVILY censored... But shady Asian companies (not Samsung THIS time) selling knockoff iPhones is not only okay to talk about, but advertised with direct links....weird.
      I sit at home with nothing to do - when I hear of something I'm opposed of - I retract from it RIGHT AWAY - blocking all known issues to avoid from me having to be exposed to all the evils in the world...

      anyone want to webcam!!!
