The designs of iPhones have always lured us. Unfortunately, buying an iPhone is not everyone’s cup of tea! However, what if we can grab a phone that looks exactly like the genius! Listed below are the top 5 contenders for the perfect iPhone replica!
Have you always been awed by the magnificent design language of an iPhone, but not willing to spend a massive chunk of your paycheck to own this beauty? Or, are you one of those Android fanatics who swear by the versatility and flexibility of the interface? If your answer is yes to both, then simply read on. We bring to you the top 4 mobile phones that boast of designs inspired by the chic and uber-stylish iPhones from Apple and the functional magic of Android, all in one compact body!
Karbonn K-Phone 1
Let’s start with the most economical iPhone clone, the Karbonn K-Phone 1, which flaunts a similar looking rear panel as an iPhone 5. Launched during the fag-end of 2013 at a price of INR 1699/- only, this phone falls under the entry-level segment and is one of the cheapest mobile phones in the market. It is important to note here that apart from donning a silver and white combination at its rear exactly like an iPhone 5, this phone does nothing to compete with the masterpiece. With a 2.4-inch non-touch display, 1.3-MP primary shooter, and 16 GB of external storage, the K-Phone 1 is only a cheap imitation of the back panel of iPhone.
Drawing inspiration from the classic iPhone, the recently launched Xolo Q1200 has a front as well as back design borrowed from the stylish offering from Apple. The rear panel flaunts a silver metal finish in the middle with two white plastic strips on top and bottom. Loaded with mediocre configurations and software, the phone doesn’t have many enticing features apart from the fact that it is an iPhone look-alike in the truest sense.
Huawei Ascend P6
From the metal banding on the sides to the rounded corners and chamfered edges, the design of Huawei Ascend P6 strikes an obvious similarity with the enchanting iPhone. Though the Ascend P6 is significantly larger in display and dimensions than the iPhone, both exude the same premium feel. In fact, there is no escaping the fact that the P6 is one of the most stunning and power-packed Android phones in the market. Backed by decent specs and priced at around INR 25,000, we can easily call P6 as a cheap alternative to iPhone.
Recently unveiled in Beijing and yet to enter the Indian shores, the Xiaomi Mi 4 is an absolute stunner and yet another intelligent iPhone clone. It comes in a white version which makes it all the more difficult to distinguish it from an iPhone from a distance. Backed by high-end specs and not-so-high prices, this phone is an affordable Android phone which has already grabbed eyeballs in Asian countries.
Apart from the above-mentioned iPhone look-alikes, there are a couple of other devices which bear a striking resemblance with the popular Apple product such as the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Alpha. Nevertheless, one should not forget that these phones are mere replicas of the famous iPhone and in most cases, do not render similar functionalities offered by Apple.
