“God made the world and the rest of all are made in china” – Anonymous

Since 1980, China has become the world’s largest manufacturing resource and potential market. According to an official report, there are nearly 42 million Chinese suppliers exporting their goods to the rest of the world.

Now coming to the point…

Due to their cheap rates china mobiles (especially) are having a wide range of market all across the world. We get duplicates of all the famous gadgets of the world from china. Now here this article may help you in finding the differences between original gadget and its shanzhai (duplicate).

Let’s start with the new crazy iPhone4…

From the above figure we really can’t find iPhone from its shanzai. But with few observations we can find out the dupe… but left one is Chinese iPhone and right one is The iPhone…

By the external looks we can find real and shanzai iPhone. On the back of Chinese iPhone there will be no scribbling. It will be literally plain but original iPhone consists of some information about it as shown.

Here we can simply identify the real and dupe. But if they have overcome this limitation also, then…

Most of the shanzhai’s can be easily found by simply switching on. Start-up tone itself reveals its true identity in most of the cases. And if it you still can’t judge, then we can find out by checking its functioning. There cannot be any competition from any dupe to the Media core processor supplied by MediaTek that never went past 460MHz; but the GPhone version T6 is a breath of shock. It is well crafted and replicates the much desired iPhone 4 in looks, plus it has performance of a powerful Qualcomm processor which really competes with iPhone.

Above is the new GPhone version T6

If the above conditions fail then next chance is that the iPhone 4, the GT6 doesn’t support 4G but it supports both 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.

And there are some other like…

The complete specs list is not out yet, but there’s definitely a multi touch capacitive display, mini SIM card slot, 3.5mm headphone port, and microphone port. 

Like its original counterpart, it has dual camera—5MP rear camera with LED flash and a video camera on the front

These are some of the precautions those can be made to identify an iPhone and its shanzhai…
