Functional iPhone 6 clones might be available to buy soon

0. phoneArena 12 Jul 2014, 10:16 posted on

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...

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.

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....

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

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 ).

I'd buy one just to be able to laugh in Apple fans faces when they swoon over it.
