Let’s take a break from the numerous knock off Apple iPads and fake iPhone 4’s, and take a look at what must be one of the best 4-inch screened Chinese Android smart phones on the market today!

Sure, this 4-inch Android branded smart-phone looks suspiciously like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, but let’s look past that and take a look at just how good this phone actually is!

Knock Off Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Specification

On paper this knock off Xperia Arc, also known as the X18i, looks a little under powered with only a 650Mhz CPU and 512Mb RAM, however as you will see in the hands on video below those limitations don’t seem to hamper the functions or slow the very smart user interface one bit!

    No phone for 100$, but you can buy one from China for 116 USD with free shipping.

    Search before complaining; Google is your friend.
