If you're looking for an iPhone 6 clone, you may be able to buy one (functional, too) in the near future - though you'll probably have to go to China for that...

It says in stock on September 30th. Thats pre-order for 140000 yen ...almost 1400 USD...that outrageous

Thats not outrageous. Supply and demand. Happens every iPhone launch when all the stores sell out on launch day. I remember using my upgrade to buy an iPhone 4 just to resell it for $1200.
$1000 profit. Cha Ching.

I guess not especially because its a foreign country where they dont have many Apple Stores. I guess people just dont know how to wait it out. Profit to those that wait in line I suppose.

About 4 weeks after launch we bought a space gray iPhone 5S 16 GB for $99 from Best Buy with a contract upgrade. Turned around and sold it for $600. I never had made $500 so easy.
I now wish that I had done the same thing with my line but I wanted a Note 3 pretty bad.

But you still pay for the contract? I don't get it....
19. Vexify (Posts: 275; Member since: 16 Jun 2014)
No, you still use your current awesome phone instead of using the new phone you could get for $200. (or $99 in his case).

You're still subsidizing the Fruit Phone's Retail price on the back end. You're probably on the hook for the usual two year contract If you break it; the new owner will get his/her phone blacklisted/shut off. Nothing wrong with that imho. You could also have your carrier whack the 20-30 monthly subsidy charge off your bill as well. The major carriers' billing disclosure is still kinda' shady.

Some people pay $25 (or more) extra on a "upgradeable" plan but don't notice it.
Anyway, that "$1000" would actually make him $300 to $500 in real profits. That's still pretty good.

All the same boring design. The OS might be snappy...H/W might be well built..but its out-dated in design dept....

They just updated the design last year, what are you talking about?
30. mrmagicman21 (Posts: 8; Member since: 21 Jan 2014)
What design enhancements were made? They took the iPhone 5 body, added some border coloring and a gold color and boom a new phone? The iPhone design is stale as all hell

iphone huggers will buy an iphone for 2000 dollars on launch day if given the chance.. Money well spent!

well whatever he is doing is not working . look at the sales figure of iPhone ( before you say android is in 78% phones world wide just remember you are comparing one phone to a platform ).

Can it really be any worse then the real phone?
10. Cynaraos (Posts: 10; Member since: 07 Jul 2014)
And now people will claim to have an actual iPhone 6 even though the only have the phone mentioned in this article.
14. Doakie (Posts: 1168; Member since: 06 May 2009)
I'd buy one just to be able to laugh in Apple fans faces when they swoon over it.

these clones should be running android, isn't it?!
12. GoBears (Posts: 335; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
I hope not. They'd actually be kind of useful then lol.

Yeah exactly ! iPhone 6 will bring nothing new to the android.

Look at that HTC One M8 style. I smell a lawsuit.
