    I read an article several days ago about the clone phones in China http://www.shanzai.com/index.php/ma...gbei-reveals-the-reality-of-the-tablet-market, and I was impressed by such a big market. Then I searched out an onlineshop which specializes in cell phone clones in China and had a look there details, there are so many handys here, most of them are copies of iphone, Nokia and other famous brand. Maybe you can also find the same one as which you are using now, but```They are so cheap```I don't know why there are still so many people who are willing to buy these "phones", just because of the low prices? But can they really work well as the descriptions?:thinking:

    The big markets for these clones are developing countries with a large population that can't spend $200 on a phone every year. And poor/cheap people who want people to think they have the latest and greatest, and don't care how it works as long as it has "the look."

    High-end smartphones aren't $200 just FYI, in many countries you buy them unlocked. You aren't talking about $200 but $500 upward, and in the case of iPhones, way, way upward. $800?

    My wife is from the Philippines and when I met her she had a China Nokia N95. Utter rubbish. The screen had a habit of reversing in self, like a mirror.
    Now has a LG Optimus. Much better.

    As far as I know, a brand phone such as Sony Ericssion, Samgsung und Nokia in the developing countries also costs more than $200. Maybe it is more expensive than in the developed countries because these phones were not produced by their country.

    Maybe this Nokia N95 was also a airphone from China?
    Copies of LG Optimus are also sold on the clone market.

    True enough, but that just makes my point stronger. I'm sure they don't sell many of those clones in America, but in other parts of the world, I'm sure they have problems keeping them in stock.
