    The real i-phone isn`t much better. And you can`t record videos on the i-phone. This one is better in that respect!!

    It sounded like he was just describing the iphone the whole time "just rubbish for making calls" "awfull touchscreen... resolution is rubbish". tbh i would prefer this over a drm packed video-less iphone.

    No guys, it`s crap, I don`t care how you look at it. Why wouldn`t you just buy an actual iPhone, they both suck the same, but, at least iPhone sucks in a functional manner.

    Just get an LG Glimmer, it costs more than the iPhone without a rebate, but, it`s the best phone I`ve ever used.

    I work as an Apple iPhone tech agent, so I find this absolutely hilarious.

    The sad thing is, this phone can do some things the iPhone can`t, but otherwise, compared to the real thing, really does look like crap ^^;

    Yeah, those counterfeiters crap themselves at the prospect of doing something *illegal*.

    I neither want to get the original iPhone or the rip-off ... my mobile phone is more than 5 years old and it still works fine (despite being dropped more than once).

    This phone is terrible compared to my original iphone (unlocked & jailbroken). A friend of mine bought one (biggest mistake) and the touch feature is the worse....there`s a delay. With my j.b. iphone i added video and other apps. FREE! And I don`t have to worry about storage cause i have 8gigs. iphone>iphony

    Lol, I love this guy`s reviews. Frankly, I can`t believe that China can crank out cheap, crappy, knock-offs at the rate they do, but God (or whoever) bless `em for doing so.

    This message approved by the Chairman.

    (Just saw Phydeaux said the exact same thing.)

    I liked how he called them out on the fake signal strength meter.

    Ashen`s reviews are hilarious. It`s amazing how China just rips off everything and stupid people buy them.

    Reminds me of the time I had to tell a woman who walked into the electronics store I work at that the reason her ipod wasn`t functioning was because it wasn`t an actual ipod, it was one of the cheap Chinese "MP4 player" ripoffs made to look like an ipod nano. I think Ashen reviewed that a while back too. Dumba*s people.

    "necros: you have obviously never seen an iphone, iphone has apps accelerometer and drat lots more. youre talking out of your ass."

    have you ever used an iphone? the apps are crappy java minigames with pooooor open gl. the accelerometer is fantastic if you like £2.99 gimmicks that seriously are older than old hat. i have an iphone (not the 3g) in my hand, it just crashed when i went to open that water simulation app, great.

    buy a real phone. not something that makes you look like your touching up a smudgy piece of plastic.

    Because when you got a pooty phone you don`t have to worry about scratching it, dropping it, losing it, and getting it stolen because I know if I had a choice between stealing a pooty as Motorolla and an iPhone I would steal the iPhone.
