Goophone i6

It’s pretty easy to tell how GooPhone got so successful. Year after year, they’ve come out with accurate clones of some of the most popular handsets, including every iteration of the iPhone since the iPhone 4. In recent years, they’ve actually been beating Apple by coming out with a clone WELL BEFORE THE REAL THING CAME OUT! So now that they’ve come out with an iPhone 6 clone by the name of the GooPhone i6, can we say that this is what the iPhone 6 might actually look like? Let’s take a look at the device itself, shall we?

According to months of rumors and reports, the iPhone 6 would finally bend to consumer demand and upgrade to a larger-sized screen. The GooPhone i6 comes with a 4.7 inch qHD IPS screen, which might not match the current generation iPhones in terms of sharpness, but matches screen size according to the most popular reports.

As for the body, the iPhone 6 rumor mill has been pretty divided, with some reports pointing to a more rounded body, reminiscent of the iPhone 3G and 3GS, while others point toward something more in-line with the iPhone 5 and 5S. The GooPhone i6 appears to take the latter route, sporting a similar body as the iPhone 5 and 5S that just so happens to incorporate a larger screen.

Of course, don’t expect top of the line specs here. Aside from the relatively low resolution, you’re also getting a rather entry to mid-level MediaTek MT6582 SoC with a 1.3GHz quad core processor and Mali 400 MP2 GPU. You’re also only getting 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage to go along with a 13mp primary camera and a 5mp front camera. Thankfully, it will have expandable storage, but one thing I can’t get over is that it will have dual SIM support! Man, I can’t wait for some folks at Sulit.com.ph OLX.ph to start peddling dual SIM iPhone 6’s like they’re the real deal.

Oh, by the way, the GooPhone i6 will go for $150 and will become available by August 1. So if you’re looking for an affordable Android experience while fooling everyone into thinking you’ve got Apple’s latest and greatest, just head over to their official website at GooPhone.net. You’ll even find Samsung and HTC knock-offs too if that’s your thing.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
