It was just a matter of time until someone made an iPhone 5S look-alike handset. And as the matter of fact that someone just did. Wanna make a bet who was it? Yes, it was GooPhone, the most famous clone maker from China. The fake iPhone 5S is called GooPhone i5S and can be pre-ordered from GooPhone site for a mere $199.99. In case you were wondering, it is an off-contract price. The GooPhone i5S is available in the same color scheme as the original iPhone 5S, that is in black, silver and gold.
iPhone 5S clone vs. original iPhone 5S
Like other GooPhone offering, the i5S follows the original design to a tiniest detail. Place both phones side by side and it would probably take some time to notice the difference between them, save for the branding and logo at the back, obviously. The insides, however, are a whole different story. The GooPhone i5S is not even close to what the Apple’s iPhone 5S has to offer.
The clone measures 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm and weighs in at 112 g. The phone features a 4-inch display with a lowlish resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, which is nothing like the Retina display of the original iPhone. The dual-core 1.2 Ghz MT6572 processor is also a far cry from Apple’s chip. The handset comes with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory and is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel user-facing shooter.
Connectivity features include 3G data, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. According to the manufacturer, the i5S’s 1500 mAh battery will deliver up to 5 hours of talk time and up to 48 hours of standby time. And don’t expect Apple’s iOS. The GooPhone i5S runs good old Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
