While it might be easy for the avid smartphone enthusiast to spot a fake iPhone 6 from the genuine thing, it isn’t so easy for others. We have a few pics shared by someone on Twitter. Apparently, someone made a purchase that turned out to be fake.
First up, so here is the iPhone 6 booting: That looks like the authentic thing; right? So far, so good. Of course, if you look closer, the design elements are a bit different.
Once booted though, what you see an Android-style lock screen and matching wallpaper: Dead give-away. No way that is an authentic iPhone 6.
Finally, if you flip it over and have a look at the back:
If you take a closer look at the bottom section of the rear cover, you will see this: Yes; “Designed by M Horse”. Certainly not designed by Apple. This “iPhone” is a knock-off that runs Android OS.
Who is M Horse?
M Horse is a Chines mobile phone manufacturer of Android smartphones. Behind almost every fake iPhone model is an obscure Chinese manufacturer. No offence to other credible Chinese manufacturers who do not produce knock-offs. Do keep an eagle eye open when shopping for smartphones. There are fake models of every successful brand out there. If ever in doubt, walk away.
