his logic is bad, mine has the Apple logo "hologram" and I whittled mine out of a piece of drift wood I found by the delta. The real trick is keeping it powered but not on fire

I got stopped by a guy selling a hi-phone on my way to shopping. I homoured him by making it look like that I was interested. I saw the phone. It looked exactly like an iPhone 4S. He even had a genuine box. He switched it on but the OS was NO WAY as fluid as iOS. He even said said that the iPhone accepts dual sims, micro and normal :eek::ROFLMAO: . As all iPhone 4S owners know, the iPhone only accepts micro sims. To the unsuspecting public, they probably would have bought it , thinking that it's an original. Just a heads up to people that there are exact copies out there. Make sure you look at the way it operates and ask if it accepts micro sims as well as normal.

I have never seen a good replica, and even if they made a perfect hardware match, just mess with the os, thats where the massive fail is at usually, even then the ifakes are pretty terrible imp

I visited China last year and they had fake Apple stores. At least they did in the Jilin province. :)
I remember those making the news, I can't believe someone would even fall for it?

Mine has the Apple bite, but on the other side when I am looking at it in the mirror.. It also has it listed as "iPhone fake" on the bottom.. I'm pretty sure it says that just to throw people off..

I know we have seen this on a prior thread about a year and a half ago, but I couldn't resist since it is the topic of conversation regarding fake iPhones.

18 seconds in... "You're an idiot". I forgot how funny this 'review' was!
