iPhone 5s vs iPhone 6

Say what you will about Apple fans, one thing I think we can all agree on is that they’re very loyal to their brand. Case in point, the folks on the streets of Hollywood, California who somehow got duped by Jonathan Morrison of Techfast Lunch & Dinner into thinking a cheap iPhone 6 knock off — running a heavily skinned version of Android — was the real deal.

Despite the phone carrying the hardware specs of a household potato, the outside body actually looks pretty damn good. Especially considering it’s just a Chinese clone. Some would make the argument that this is exactly where the real appeal of Apple products lay, as people on the street turned a blind eye to the performance of the phone which was so obviously lacking. Adding to the laughs, the host mentions the iPhone 6 knockoff carries a 26-core processor, 8K display, and other outlandish specs to which passerby’s believe it all — hook, line, and sinker.

On a more serious note, it’s interesting to see just how little “normals” actually know/care about mobile hardware, despite our current mobile landscape where manufacturers are always attempting to one up the competition with more cores, RAM, or absurdly higher MP cameras. Check out the video below to see the Android-powered iPhone 6 in action and take part in the hilarity.

Thanks, TenEightyPee!
