Nokia Lumia 920 knock-off hits the street

Nokia Lumia 920
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.
