Oppo N1 gets cloned

Oppo N1 gets cloned

We don’t get to see clones of the Chinese phones that often. Usually, we have fake iPhones and knock-offs of popular Samsung and HTC devices, not fake China-made phones. That’s not the case with the iNew V8, which is a new “variant” of the Oppo N1 — that’s right, in a weird twist of events…

Pebble gets cloned in China; Meet the Zebble

Zebble

Certain Chinese OEMs can’t help but make copies of well-known devices. The latest gadget that caught their eye is Pebble, the smartwatch that started its life on Kickstarter and has gathered an impressive following ever since. It got its Chinese “version” in the form of Zebble, which not only looks like Pebble but also has…

Fake Samsung Galaxy S5 appears in China

Fake Samsung Galaxy S5 appears in China

Wow, that was fast. Only two days after Samsung’s official announcement of the Galaxy S5, China’s GooPhone managed to clone it. The end-result is actually pretty decent, though you should refrain from buying it at any cost. We can’t support this form of blatant IP infringements and you shouldn’t either. Anyway, the newly unveiled GooPhone…

Fake iPad Mini available in China for less than $200

Fake iPad Mini available in China for less than $200

We’re not sure why it took so long for some Chinese company to make its own “version” of Apple’s iPad Mini. Perhaps we missed some previous product, perhaps not. Anyhow, we have one such device here, and it’s called GooPad Mini 2. However, despite its name, this is a clone of the original iPad Mini…

Fake Moto X appears in China under the name of HDC X

Fake Moto X

Well what do you know; Chinese cloners did it again and this time round their target is the hot-new Motorola X. The device called HDC X would fool anyone who’s not looking into details and asking questions such as “where’s the Moto logo here?”. Plus, if you can actually fire-up the Settings you’ll see some…

HTC One Max cloned before being officially announced

HTC One Max cloned before being officially announced

Chinese cloners are getting better with the day, with their latest gig being the fake HTC One Max. The Taiwanese company still hasn’t announced its very first phablet but that apparently doesn’t stop some “savvy” handset makers from launching their own “versions” of the phone. However, the newly caught Galapad Galaxy 6 doesn’t come with…

Fake Galaxy S4 shows up in China

Fake Galaxy S4 shows up in China

To tell you the truth we’re kinda disappointed with Chinese cloners. It took them almost three months to release the Galaxy S4 rip-off. Usually they’re faster unveiling their own “versions” of popular devices within a month or so. Heck, we’ve seen some phones getting their Chinese “counterparts” even before they were officially announced. Anyway, the…
