Is this the iPhone 4 or what?

Is this the iPhone 4 or what?

This package did not come from California but Shenzhen, China. Sent over the week-end via DHL and un-wrapped moments ago. Is this the white iPhone 4?


Let the pictures decide.

    Looks like… hmmm… c’mon ABe, don’t keep us in suspense! Is it the real McCoy? :-)

  2. Baka one-of-them-china-phones yan, Abe :D

  3. jerome says:

    i dont think so. haha. walang front view ng phone e. madali kasing masabi pag tinignan sa harap. i think china clone lang yan.. ewan. haha

  4. bajo says:

    that’s iclone 4

  5. Daryl John says:

    It’s fake, the iPhone font looks fake. :P

  6. Andre says:

    Probably a KIRF! The proof is in the “retina display”.

  7. Arlene says:

    that looks real! :)

  8. Herce says:

    That is a well done KIRF!

    Can’t wait till we get to the point where we can buy KIRF phones that are really as good as the original but half the price and none of the crappy corporate control.

    Lets place bets. I say it’ll start to happen within the next 5 years.

  9. cjportana says:

    I think it’s not even a phone….

  10. Jab says:

    I think it’s a KIRF… I think the screen is too small on the last pic…

  11. Calvin says:

    hehe kulet ah. mukhang fake. kelan balik mo?

  12. vergel says:

    judging by the looks maybe this is the real thing..hehehehe post ka na ng review idol FTW!

  13. Jade Bryan says:

    The screen is way smaller than the real one. :D

  14. muzikfreakah says:

    @abeolandres Iphone Clone this early? :-)

  15. joeyoliver says:

    i think it’s fake.
    there’s no indication of storage size at the back.

  16. Grace says:

    Yeah. It’s a REPLICA :)

  17. bino says:

    Definitely fake, the two screw at the bottom is missing.. hehe. iFake!

  18. snpklsdmbldr says:

    does the signal goes down after touching the antenna? if yes, then thats the real deal. hehehe

  19. manaka_junpei says:

    baka yan ang binili sa Greenhills

  20. fr0stbyte says:

    Most obvious thing was.. White iPhones are not even available in the US, let alone China.. (read this sometime ago at Engadget). Though I could be wrong.

  21. cutemoboy says:

    aint real.. the real one has a black home button even if its a white version of the fone.. saw it on some tech sites. & the white iphone is only avail in the U.K

  22. Teknisyan says:

    looks real.. but like what they all say.. if its too good to be true that means it’s not. heheh…

    parang itong iFake 3GS na nabili ni Sir Joel.


  23. nitecrawler says:

    a FAKE.. The Back Facing Camera and the Charger Slot is close and screws are missing

  24. Jon says:

    Fake! Haha. But a very convincing fake.

  25. Euan says:

    i think its a fake.. notice the camera?? bakit puti yung gitna ng camera(cirle)?? usually black dapat yung camera kasi lens yun di ba?

  26. cheftonio says:

    100% fake. File name of the photo says iPhone 4 dummy. Hehehe

  27. dulfo says:

    Hi sir Abe, is this the one diassembled by Gizmodo? Of course not, just looks similar except the color. For now at least, I have to agree that’s its an Iclone4.

  28. is this a contest? guessing the right answer would entitle us to have a chance to win one?

  29. anything can be copied these days… but I have to say.. it does look neat

  30. Adrian says:

    bibili ako agad pag labas sa july ng iPhoe 4.

  31. Tsing Tsong Tsay says:

    its a fake…maliit kasi ang screen….ma-pag iiwanan yan ng 4inches na screen nag Motorolla & HTC

  32. JKisaragi says:

    It’s the iPhone’s brother from another mother (or sister from another mister? O_O)

    KIRF (me thinks). The phone’s back cover doesn’t give that shiny/glossy effect that the iPhone 4’s have (glass).

    Or maybe my eyes are failing me. O_O

  33. Joshua says:

    It is not the real thing! why? look at image 3 and 4; the front camera is HOLLOW!

    second the “iPhone” text should be white instead of black

    third the USB port is covered and white! it should be open and black!

  34. Joshua says:

    Correction di pala front camera (i laughed) at my mistake XD its back camera

  35. simplynice93 says:

    At first, It looked like an iPhone 4 plastic replica. I looked at Apple’s website and compared in to your “iPhone 4” picture. Conclusion…It is the iPhone 4!

  36. superdan says:

    fake yan. not because wala na yung disk size sa likod. wala na talaga sya sa iphone 4. pero what gave it away are the 2 screws sa may charger/cable port area nya. dapat meron nun. haha.

    as for clarification lang, iphones are made in china yun nga lang meron silang disclosure na the unit is designed in california. hehe. yan yung nakalagay sa mga apple products ko e. hehe.

    sir abe, lupit naman nito. does it have the same specs/kinks as the real iphone 4?

  37. Joshua says:

    ok another mistake on the iPhone text, it was just shining so i said it was supposed to be white lol anyway the camera and usb port is still covered :D

  38. Please confirm if this is the iPhone 4 or just another iClone phone. :D

  39. Mike says:

    I looks like a teaser for upcoming iphone 4 in the philippines. Its pretty common for an apple products especially iphone. Marketing kind of thing. LOL

  40. roan carl says:

    its a dummy iphone 4 hehehehe…

  41. mel says:

    wow the real thing

  42. /m says:

    looks like it

  43. an iPhone wannabe!!!

  44. Franz says:

    It’s the real one.

    Abe does not purchase fake gadgets. Period. lolz

  45. drew says:

    fake. walng rear camera at hindi glossy. haha

  46. CHL says:

    Foxconn manufactures Iphone in Shenzhen China. Nothing is missing as far as look is concern except one. The screen looks just slightly shorter. Fake.

  47. tenshi says:

    Fake, the sim tray tolerances are much too thick. Jony Ive would never allow this.

  48. Efren Sy says:

    Yes it is a fake pati ung pin slot for the sim card tray baliktad
    namuntik na me dun
    nice handy work by the chinese
    another 2nd rate trying hard copy cat!

    nice one abe

  49. Frenchy says:

    Looks good but the screen looks smaller. Di kaya calculator ito? Or mp4 player. :)

  50. Mela says:

    ‘did not COME,’ not ‘did not came’

  51. luiboowee says:

    first of all, the first words should be “did not COME” and not “did not CAME.”


  52. desco says:

    real deal…

  53. desco says:

    o wait, correct me if I’m wrong, from the DHL package, I don’t know if it’s how they really pack their cargo. No stickers or anything. and also I dont think apple china will wrap a packaging tape around their box and write a pentel pen on it. Just an observation since we cannot judge the phone because we haven’t seen one!

  54. desco says:

    AND, how did you purchase a white iphone4? US is still waiting to have one. Unless, Steve Jobs is your close buddy ;)

  55. emzarate says:

    check mo if it has signal/reception problems, if it does, chances are… well… :)

  56. Ed says:

    plasticky… definitely a KIRF.

  57. dami nagsasabi fake. para maiba naman totoo to :)

  58. @emzarate : and if the package come with a disclaimer/note stating that if a device has no signal they should contact the newly hired antenna engineers, then that is for sure a real iPhone 4.

  59. pinoydeal says:

    wow! wahh white version yan ung hinihintay ko :D

  60. RickLabrador says:

    Obviously fake.. The body looks more like cheap plastic than glass specially the sides… crap china phone replica i say.

  61. kevin says:

    Definitely fake! There’s suppose to be a gap between the headset jack and the power/standby button (to separate the two antennas which is the metal rim of the phone itself). I don’t see any gap anywhere. Also, the screen is too small.

  62. edz says:

    fake. wala pang iphone white na nilalabas at saka yun screen is too small,,

  63. Wow says:

    Pls. don’t tell me you purchased something like that from China!

  64. aie says:

    china phone nyee :D ????

  65. Justin says:

    i think it’s real

  66. Lyle says:

    It’s a dummy phone.

  67. Justine says:

    the screen looks? or really small? haha. It’s fake. :) I think .:D

  68. marcpodi says:

    fyi: White iPhone 4 has white home button too.

  69. Grabehan says:

    fake. haha

  70. so ano na, may sinasabi na ba si abe about this? fake or not.

  71. Efren Sy says:

    somebody has already told already to check out MIC Gadgets

  72. jay says:

    its fake. where can i buy one? haha

  73. jay says:

    hindi yan yung sa MIC. wala daw silang white model.

  74. It’s a fake. The iPhone 4 has glass panels on both the front and back. Back doesn’t shine in the light which means no glass.

    No glass, not an iPhone 4.

  75. A R says:

    Total fake. If you look at the pictures on apple’s website, it clearly shows the lettering and the log on the back as chrome. Also, the silver band at the top is missing a line near the headphone jack. Good try tho.

  76. miaaaaatch says:

    kitang kita ang antenna.. LOL
