This brazen, yet almost-perfect Apple iPhone 6 clone comes with a 64-bit SoC, 3GB of RAM; costs just $243

We've already seen a fair amount of Apple iPhone 6 clones, some of them were good and others were better. What's more, we're almost sure that there are many that will hardly make any headlines outside China. Some of these arrived months before Tim Cook had unveiled Cupertino's latest batch of smartphones. Well, the title of the almost-perfect Apple iPhone 6 clone might easily go to Dakele Big Cola 3, which just debuted in China.

From a distance, you might easily mistake it with the real deal; put a case on it in order to hide the non-Apple logo at the back and the less-initiated will congratulate you for your new iPhone 6. We're not exaggerating at all - apart from the different logo at the back and the marginally-different placement of the hardware buttons on the side, it will be rather hard to tell that the 7.25mm-thin Dakele Big Cola 3 is not, actually, Cupertino's flagship. The lack of a mute toggle on the left side and the additional slot for a microSD card are a dead giveaway, mind you.

Underneath the hood, the Dakele Big Cola 3 has some respectable specs, which are nothing like the hardware inside the real iPhone 6. We have a 5", 1080p display panel at the front, which is covered with sapphire glass (reportedly). The Dakele Big Cola 3 is powered by a 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek MT6752 chipset, which is churning the gears at 1.7GHz in concert with 3GB of RAM.

We also have 16GB of native storage, accompanied by a microSD card slot, which supports memory cards of up to 128GB in size. At the rear, a 13MP Sony IMX214 camera sensor with an aperture of f/2.0 takes care of the images, while up front another Sony-made sensor, an 8MP Sony IMX219 one, will snap as many selfies you'd want it to. It comes without saying that the Dakele Big Cola 3 is running Android, Android 4.4 KitKat, if we have to be exact.

Most probably, the phone will not leave China. If you, however, find a way to lay your hands on it, be advised that it will set you back roughly $243.

So, what's the verdict - a shameless iPhone 6/6 Plus clone or a beautiful, well-spec'd and low-cost smartphone?
