i5 5G5s Phone – this $20 iPhone clone says it all really…

i55G5sPhone

You want to know how crazy the cell phone market has become? Well you don’t have to look any further than this iPhone clone out of China. We’re talking about a complete touchscreen handset which costs less than a pair of socks in the West. And the specs aren’t totally horrible either.

The i5 5G5s phone features a 4 inch touchscreen, dual SIM, dual standby, Bluetooth A2DP, FM radio, microSD card support up to 8GB, stereo speakers, dual 1.3 megapixel cameras front and back with flash and an MP3/MP4 player for music and video. And it supports four languages (English, German, French and Polish).

The thing comes with a Lithium battery which gives 100 hour standby and 2-3 hours talk time, and will work on all GSM/GPRS networks (quad band). Yes you spotted the deliberate omission, there’s no 3G. But hey, do you want us to repeat the price? OK we will. It’s $20.99. For the Brits that’s £12.80.

Yeah crazy.

      For the price and the features on it I would be highly surprised if it ran any Android. I would imagine it is similar software on board as a cheap candy-bar phone you can buy for $10 and should be treated as similar. The only positives beyond a dirt cheap Nokia candy-bar phone is the fact it has touch screen abilities and designed to look like a modern iPhone style, so in effect it looks a lot “posher” than it is. Beyond that I am pretty sure most of the features are similar to phones you could buy cheap even as far back as 6 or 7 years ago, albeit the dual-sim card which is a fairly new feature mobile manufacturers seem to be swinging towards.

      • Yes agreed Paul, although I would add that the dual SIM, dual standby is a pretty excellent feature on a phone this cheap, and one I haven’t seen before at all at this level.
