Innocent bystanders get pranked with fake iPhone 6
Apple may have not even announced the iPhone 6 yet, but there have been quite enough leaks so far, so that knockoff manufacturers could get to work on a couple of replicas already. Of course, their hardware is barely something to write home about and their functionality is more than likely to cause the user to throw the phone off a cliff, however that does not mean they are completely useless.

YouTuber Jonathan Morrison recently acquired one such replica, solely to scratch his tech-curious itch, and after playing around with it, decided it would be fun to take it out on the street and show it to random strangers, before he dumps it in the "forget-and-never-use-again" bin.

In the video, you can see Morrison pranking various people, making them believe that the phone they are holding in their hands is the yet unreleased iPhone 6. Then asks them how they like the speed, the incredible resolution (8k, he calls it), and even talks about a 3D effect that can be seen if the user squints.

Of course, the video is most probably edited in order to achieve the best comic effect, so enjoying it without judgement is the best way to proceed.

And still can't become #1 lol. Samsung will die within the next 2 years and LG will become the next iPhone competitor.

You know what is the actually funny part? Morrison claiming the "iPhone 6" as having an 8k screen.

Considering how the 5s has a sub HD "retina" display, we would have colonized Mars by the time the real iPhone incorporates such a high resolution screen.

Apple sells bright shiny objects primarily to the "you can fool some of the people all of the time" crowd.

The NSA had it right when it deemed iPhone users to be nothing more than "iZombies".

Haha it makes me laugh how as soon as people think its apple they assume its amazing even though it has lame hardware they still say wow.

Apple marketing has really brainwashed people.

This is why when you speak to an iphone user they haven't a clue about a smartphone and what it can actually do but they only know how to text, type , go on social networks and take Portrait videos loooool

would you not assume the next anything would be better than the previous? you could change the launcher take the apple logo off and say its the next galaxy phone and tell people the same sh*t and you would get the same reaction

Would you likr to elaborate? Those people clearly know nothing about technology so technically you could have changed the launcher take the apple logo off and say its the next galaxy phone and tell people the same sh*t and you would get the same reaction

You can imagine whatever you want. But we already know what happened in the real world.

Dumb iFans. Not real Apple fans like me, people who just buy it because it's new. Convincing themselves that they notice things that aren't really there.
