Video: see the first functional 4.7-inch iPhone 6 clone in action
Called Wico i6, the iPhone 6 knock-off that you’ll see below sports a 4.7 inch screen, and is rather laggy. Its display is visibly less appealing than the Retina Display of the iPhone 5s (you’ll notice that in the second video).
We’re expecting iPhone 6 clones to be available to buy in China in the near future for a few hundred dollars.
As we previously noted, we can’t be 100% sure that what we’re seeing below is an exact copy of the real iPhone 6 - which will most likely be announced by Apple in September. Anyway, what do you think, will Apple go with this design? Or will the company surprise us with something that we haven't seen before?

that protruding camera lens looks horrendous especially with the recessed flash, otherwise it doesn't look too bad

If they manage to make a decent phone with no lagging better screen and support more band then maybe they will have a chance... :)

Can't wait for the Ashens review.

The iPhone 5G knock-off review was hilarious also.

This clone is so cringe worthy... Chinese clone makers have the exact measurements and everything given to them and they still can't even get the look completely right.... Not to mention the random country music pasted ontop of the video lol
EDIT: Anyone else notice that the 5s has a round flash? Lol... Fake?

If iphone6 comes with same design , will be clone of this phone.
Do you have any Apple's real pictures so far, or only ifan's imaginary renders? ROTFL
16. buccob (Posts: 1483; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)
Yeah but he is still right... even the smaller "5s" has a round led which probably makes it a fake...
17. syncronyze (Posts: 97; Member since: 26 Apr 2014)
Compare the clone design to the "schematics", which include all of the measurements.
Earpiece is too high, front facing camera is too high, proximity sensor would be most likely hidden as it is on the 5S. Metal should come up to the sides of the screen rather than showing the screen bezel. One of the screws doesn't even screw into the phone, text font is completely wrong on the back. Vibrate switch is sitting in the middle for some reason, the Apple logo is recessed though on every other iPhone the Apple logo protrudes a small bit or is flush.
ROTFL!!!!!!! YOU BURNED ME LOL

So if a Chinese company rips off the design language of a phone that's been in development for at least 2 years then it's there's? Maybe that's how it works in China where everyone rips off people's stuff without a car, but that's not how it works in the rest of the world.

Copy of what? iphone6 doesn't exist yet. If come with the same design iphone will copy this
18. marbovo (Posts: 655; Member since: 16 May 2013)
Really?!?! Thanks for the heads up. if wasnt for you I would believe that that was the iOS running on the clone device...
24. The-Sailor-Man (Posts: 1027; Member since: 25 Mar 2014)
Well I'm talking about the desigh.
iOS skins exist on Google Play since years. No news there

Price it right, and it could be the better bang for the buck.
They could snipe a few posers away.

I am sure that this is not the iphone 6 it is a clone one

Not a bad looking clone, and to think the real deal will have all the goodies, plus the attention to detail. The sleeping giant has been awakened.

If Apple can't get off it's high horse & compete in screen quality, size and resolution as much as the current competitors then it's no longer a leader and is all about making money making trade-offs then satisfying it's loyal customers....i'm NOT interested in ANY Apple product that is not at least in the top 3 of it's kind...that's why Apple should be that good !!! I'm not interested as most people are at high end walking around with a piece of tech that upon new release is inferior to it's competition ;-)

Once more TrolTM, go away, get lost, I've nothing to say to you. Again, get lost, bother someone else with your BS.
34. syncronyze (Posts: 97; Member since: 26 Apr 2014)
I mean it's going to be competing in all 3 of the things you just said come the next update. Resolution and screen quality are still there on the 5S, when you get to something like QUAD TRIPLE X HD, your eyes can't really tell the difference, it just puts more strain on the battery.
32. EiadAjam (Posts: 4; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
this is fake
you can see it is lagging and software is ios 7
totally fake and poor

less appealing than the Retina Display of the iPhone 5s - that cracked me up ROTFL
Well.. Maybe 3 years ago. Now it's a joke to mention that terminology, when even entry-level phones from the competition push more pixels. I am not trolling.
It's a fact that the iPhone revolutionized the smartphone concept. It's a fact that Google had to rewrite Android to make it touch based as a result of the iphone's release. It's a fact that at 3.5 inches, the original iphone's screen was one of the biggest of the time. Finally, the Retina Display, at the time of its introduction, was industry leading.
But that was in the past. On every single one of the aforementioned parameters, Android phones are leading by such a huge margin, it's not funny.
To their credit, Apple last year did release the first 64 bit mobile CPU. However unlike before, it wasn't a novel concept. Switch to 64 bit was always inevitable. They made it happen much sooner than expected.
Even then if you look at benchmarks, the 32 bit Android phones score at least the same as apple's 64 bit iPhone. And they are pushing out 3 or 4 times the number of pixels while doing so. In India we have a saying - the students have surpassed the master. And that's apt for high end Android phones.
Thats not to say that Apple can no longer be in the running. They are a smart company & surely realize that they are behind the curve. The supposed larger iPhone 6 versions & the limited introduction of widgets & 3rd party keyboards in IOS 8 are sure indicators that those who matter in Apple have awoken & smelt the coffee.
That can only be a good thing. As consumers, its in our interest to see healthy competition. Lopsided Contest where one side is way ahead of the other is never healthy. Apple led the way initially. Android now rules. We need an even Contest.
Yeah sure apple still makes an insane amount of money. I am talking about hardware quality. The fact is the iPhone 5s is on a hardware level, not a patch on high end Android phones. Put simply, when I see somebody with an iPhone, I know that my note 3 owns it

"To their credit, Apple last year did release the first 64 bit mobile CPU."
And good thing Samsung was around to manufacture it for them.

And, if I can ask, in what they are so much behind ?

This IPhone 6 clone seems legit, but I'd rather not buy it, I don't know, it does not attract me into it. I can't breath at night expecting the new IPhone, but 'till then, I found a phone, that will start shipping from August 30,2014, but it's now available for preorder, and which seems like a best-deal, top-quality, a kind of chinese-premium, and the owner's site has free shipping worldwide, so, I said, why not? (check hdc-mobile.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=62 if you do not believe me).
Called HDC Thunderbird I6, it comes with 4.7 Inch Muti-touch Capacitive Screen, an MTK6572 Dual Core, 1 GB Ram, 2 GB ROM, 13 mp camera, 5mp frontal, all type of sensors(gravity, light, distance, motion, etc). It's only 123.8mm * 58.6mm * 7.6mm, and while talking it stays up to 4 hrs, which seems great, in my opinion. And it's multilangual. You can see more about it in this presentation youtube.com/watch/?v=9ExQL-OJk6w.
I already ordered it. What do you say? You agree with me that is good? I need opinions :D
