Apple iPhone 5c knock off ioPhone might fool you for a second

Apple iPhone 5c knock off ioPhone might fool you for a second
Sure, at first glance the Iosys ioPhone resembles the Apple iPhone 5c, right down to the colored shells. But all you need to do is boot up the phone to see that this baby has nothing to do with the Cupertino based manufacturer of the real iPhone 5c. Instead of iOS 7, Android 4.2 is driving the device and the rest of the specs are not close to the iPhone 5c either.

The 4 inch screen on the ioPhone features resolution of 480 x 854 versus the 640 x 1136 resolution on the iPhone 5c. The dual-core MediaTek CPU on the ioPhone pales in comparison to the dual-core A6 processor on the iPhone 5c. The imposter is equipped with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage. The Apple iPhone 5c carries 1GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage. Lastly, the ioPhone's 2MP camera doesn't come close to the 8MP rear snapper on the iPhone 5c.

While the two phones share the same dimensions, one thing they don't share is the price. The ioPhone costs 15,490 Yen ($150 USD) without a subsidy. Check out the imposter in the video below.

Sauce...now you know the Sammites won't stand for you saying that. They'll start crying, whining (see gadget80), and slamming their galaxies down breaking their screens in protest. ;) +1

If you can't tell the difference between the Apple logo and the logo on the back of this phone, you shouldn't be buying an iPhone at all..

They shouldn't buy a smartphone at all for that matter

No, I just don't want to argue with you. That's all. I don't usually care about green thumbs. :)

And also, this iPhone 5c knockoff looks exactly like the iPhone 5c (except the logo), so what I said in comment #6 was just a joke. Relax. :)
