Can You Tell This Phony iPhone 4S From The Real Thing? [Video]

Unreal. This phony iPhone 4S found in Turkey looks and feels exactly like the real thing up until you turn it on… and even then, if you weren’t already familiar with what an iPhone’s low battery warning looks like, you might mistake it for the real thing. This is why you should either buy your gadgets from an Apple Store, or test them extensively before buying.

    You dont need to turn it on at all. The square on the home button is off-center.

    Come on now that looked fake.

    The silence/ringer button is pretty crooked.

    Looks pretty obvious to me. The volume buttons and mute switch don’t look right at all.

    Obvious to Apple gear owners but this could fool a newbie. Love the embedded battery warning :-)
