The JiaYu G5 is a phone which is going to hit headlines for all the wrong reasons, as the Chinese start-up have decided to base the phone on the iPhone 5 design, but with larger 4.5-inch display!
Jiayu’s decision to give the G5 an iPhone 5 appearance is a very odd move, as their current range has proven popular without them having to stoop to the levels of knock-of phone makers.

The JiaYu G5 is based on the current iPhone, iPhone 5’s, design but will feature a larger 4.5-inch screen and wider body. The iconic physical home button of iOS devices has been replaced with capacitive Android buttons, and there are some other differences in the positioning of the power button and mute switch, but despite these changes the similarities are too close for comfort, and could warrant further investigation by Apple lawyers.
As for the specs, the hardware seems very close to that of the JiaYu G4 in that both phones boast MT6589 CPU’s, 2GB RAM, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
