Nokia Lumia 920 knock-off hits the street

Nokia Lumia 920 knock-off hits the street
You can easily tell how popular a given smartphone is by the number of knock-offs of it spewed out by those no-name Chinese companies. That's why most of these cheap imitations are iPhone look-alikes, but other makes are also being copied. The Nokia Lumia 920, for example, has also caught the attention of the white-box manufacturers.

This is the "Lumia R920" – a dual-SIM phone with dubious build quality and underwhelming specs. It is made by a company called Mhorse and can be bought in India via Ebay for only 4450 rupees, which is the equivalent of $81.40. Yet unsurprisingly, you get what you pay for. There's a 4.5-inch LCD touchscreen on the device's front, which is probably impressive only on paper. The camera is of 2 megapixels and the 200kB (yes, kilobytes) of on-board storage is augmented by a 4GB microSD card thrown in the set. Sadly, this ain't a Windows Phone device. It doesn't run Android either, yet some apps do come pre-installed, including Facebook and Skype clients.

Of course, our advice is to stay away from these knock-offs since you don't really know when it might just fall apart in your hands. And if you're willing to take a chance, a link to the item on Ebay is available below.

This is promising. As soon as the fake hits the market, you know your phone is doing well. Its being recognised! By cheapo's and scammers!

Actually such devices don't have apps or support them either.

even the little operamini won't be installed on this. but perhaps it comes with ucbrowser pre installed. and that's all you got.

HAHAHAHA.........you kidding me?? I rather waste my money to buy a real Lumia 920 instead of this junk! xD If you don't have so much money, why not buy a Lumia 520 or Lumia 620, these are the most affordable entry-level Windows Phone yet.
