Chinese iPhone 4 Clones are Crap Right? Look Again! YoPhone Tear Down!

Chinese iPhone 4 clones are now at their peak. Externally they look stunningly well crafted and replicate the much desired iPhone 4 look down to a ‘T’. The user interfaces, be it Java based or preferably Android, are getting the iOS look and are even to beginning to give the mobile Apple OS a run for it’s money!
Even the hardware specifications are reaching iPhone 4 proportions!

But how about the actual guts of these knock off iPhone 4’s. How much design, thought and engineering has actually gone in to making those glossy black (and white) copycats!

Judging by the following video and photos taken during a recent tear down of the new YoPhone iPhone 4 Clone (made by the same people who brought the SoPhone) a hell of a lot!!!

The the PCB and other circuitry are impeccably made items.

Also beautifully made is the steel skeleton on to which the various custom made circuit boards and the awesomely accurate iPhone 4-a-like body attaches too.

Take a look at the video below for the full tear down.

We don’t doubt that just as much thought went into the YoPhone’s internals as the iPhone 4’s, although the YoPhone engineers did have a bit of a stepping stone…

    The ChInese r a bunch of no good fuckheads who has no originality or creativity whatsoever. They’d sell their kids just to make money if they have to.

    It might look like the iPhone 4 but only if one is looking at it from within his car…in traffic (like i did). Once one buys and attempts to use, one realizes that it works like crap compared to the real iPhone. I commend the industry that went it to the copycatting (strangely, it didn’t extend to the interiors why not, i can’t tell). I should like to advise our Chinese friends to engineer the interiors with as much effort as the exteriors and call it by their own name. I have no doubt that they’d still find market for it. Not providing an avenue for unscrupulous merchants to defraud unsuspecting users…
