    Top 5 iPhone Knockoffs

    There are a lot of iPhone knockoffs on the market today. Starting from the first iPhone up to the latest iPhone 4, some are a 1:1 (one on one) copy and some are modified knockoffs. Most of them are made in China where the copyright laws are not so strict. These iPhone knockoffs look just like the real iPhone and have the same features like Wi-Fi, GPRS, GPS and camera, but lack the quality and durability of the original Apple products. Here is a comparison of the top 5 iPhone knockoffs.

    The conclusion

    These iPhone knockoffs offer the same features as the real thing, some offer even more options like TV and cost as little as $68, but the fact is that they are poor quality. If I have to pick one then it would have to be the Sciphone i68 4G Hiphone 4. It is a knockoff of the latest iPhone 4 and it has great features that make it a fun cell phone to have.
