If I were to tell you of a place on Earth where Apple and Google co-exist in the same product you may well look at me doubtfully. If I then continued on and told you of a device which benefited from Apple’s aesthetically pleasing designs and Google’s open source mobile platform, Android, you would probably either check to see if I had been drinking or diagnose me as crazy.
But, if I then mentioned the name of this magical place you would smile and nod knowingly.
That’s right! Our friends down in Shenzhen have put together two of the most popular mobile products and created an iPhone 4/Android hybrid/clone.
On the front we get a 3.5 inch capacitive touch screen covered in a sheet of protective tempered glass plus a front facing VGA camera for video calls.
The back gets the same toughened glass treatment as the front, along with camera, LED flash and Apple branding.

On the edges we find volume controls in the same places as on the genuine iPhone as well as a micro SIM card slot and 30 pin dock connector.
The external appearance of the phone does such a good job of mimicking the real iPhone 4 that you would need to take a second glance and give it thorough going over to see what it actually is.
Or, of course you could just press the home button which will give the charade up in no time. One click of the home button brings up that now famous Android lock screen.
Android 2.1 is the version of the Google O.S pre-installed which, judging by the video below, seems to work quite happily on the 416Mhz CPU and 256Mb of ram.
Other nice feature are GPS, 3G, WIFI and a micro SD card reader hidden under the removable rear glass panel.
The model shown here is still a pre production model, but judging by the quality of the appearance and function of the O.S expect to see this knock off on shelves in time for Christmas.

i have this mobile its so cool and great 🙂
hey steven, from where i can get this mobile
You can buy this phone in Shenzhen, China, its still t new to be bought online. You can come here and buy it for more or less $215.00 you must get on the metro and go to a place called Hua Qian Bay ( Hwa-Jon-Bay).
Let me just assure you this is the best phone Ive ever bought, I love it, at first it was just a toy I wanted to play with, Im a tech geek, but this phone made me cry, it made me so happy, tears of joy, the only draw back is the battery life.
I use a 3G sim and although its not a 3G phone, I still get great speed for downloading, even I can watch videos, my nokia could never watch online videos and that was with 3G.5 speed power.
This is the best clone phone, no other draw backs. Just the battery.
This Phone was designed to make a phone your home, meaning you can make it do anything you need or want. Its worth it. The screen and the touch features are so good because of the software Android, The iOS for fake Iphone clones sucks, but this Android iphone4 clone is the best ever.
Tip, never trust or use crappy iOS Iphone3G or 4 clones.
Only use this OS Android Phone Clone. Ah its not heavy like a brick, its a normal weight for the normal phone size.
i brought this same phone from united states of america. but its not working in india. can you please advice me how to unlock this phone in india. so i can use my local sim card. and use this beautiful phone.
looking forward for your earliest reply
thanks and regards
do you reckon ill be able to buy this phone in england? its sounds like the best iphone on the market!.
also does anyone know any trustworthy sites to purchase the phone off?
I’d like one very much xD Does it run 3D things very well though? Because I have a 500MHz tablet and it is terrible at that : also, how is the battery life?
As with all Android phones battery life isnt great when 3g is on. Gaming isn’t too bad for simple stuff.
