With Apple leading the smartphone market with their most recent devices: the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, we were not expecting less than a numerous amount of copies by different makes that try to stay popular by adopting the design and the iPhone’s IU.
We can spend a lifetime on the internet trying to list all these copycats with pictures and videos of them performing as what cool pass as an iPhone but we don’t wanna bore you so let’s do the top 3 most accurate iPhone 6 replicas in the market.
1. Goophone i6S
With a price that goes from £65 to £105 the Goophone i6S is the most accurate iPhone 6 copy that we’ve come across. The Goophone I6S is carefully made, so similar that at first we thought they were using pictures from the origina iPhone 6. Then, when you look closer you can see that there’s no logo on the back cover, nothing a case can’t solve. Specs-wise, the Goophone i6S features a 4.7-inch IPS display with a disappointing resolution: 480 x 854 pixels, 4GB of internal storage, and a 1,800mAh non removable battery. The camera is 5MP but don’t expect the pictures to look as if you took them with an Apple iPhone 6. The device comes with a dual-core chipset (just like the iPhone), either the very well known MediaTek MT6572 or the MT6582 chipset.
2. Blackview Ultra A6
We need to start by saying that there’s no mute-vibrator toggle on the (sadly) plasticky Ultra A6 which immediatly gives away the fact that it’s not an iPhone 6, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hide it with a good case, install an iOS like Android launcher and we are certain most people won’t know you have a clone of the iPhone 6. Yeah, the home button looks a bit strange too if you stop to look at it. The Blackview Ultra A6 features a 4.7” 720p display, a 1.3GHz quad-core MT6582 processor, an improved 1GB of RAM in comparisson to the previous device and a 8MP rear camera as well as a 2MP selfie (front) one, a removable 2,200mAh battery, 8GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Price wise, you’re looking at £65.00 – £70.00
3. Dakele Big Cola 3
The official price for this device is £114.22, with the purchase of a good iPhone 6 case to hide the fact that the Big Cola 3 has no logo in the back you could easily convince most people that you don’t own an Apple device but the lack of a mute-vibrator toggle on the left side of the device and the complementary, very useful slot for a microSD card are among the most important differences. Underneath, the Dakele Big Cola 3 hosts some respectable specs, which are nothing like the specs inside Apple’s iPhone 6. It comes with a 5″, 1080p display panel at the front, which is covered with sapphire glass (according to some reports). This phone comes with Android powered by a 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek MT6752 chipset, with 3GB of RAM. We count with a 16Gb internal storage, which supports up to 128Gb external memory.
We are not exactly sure about the full time performances of these devices but these feature some specs of real Samsung phones that are (nothing compared to the latest Galaxy Note 4 or S5 even) running in the market so we would expect a decent Android performance with the looks of an iPhone at a very nice price.
