I9 IPhone Clone Review


Visitors: 513

Lately, the CECT i9 has become the new darling of the import iPhone clones. It has surpassed the P168 and it's quad band version, the plus, (the top dog for a really long time) as the knock off best seller. But, is it really as good as all of the hype? Is it that much better than the original iClone? Is it worth the money? This article will attempt to answer all of these questions as well as offer a review of the i9 iPhone.

First off, I'm just going to come right out and say, that yes, in my opinion, the i9 is that much better than the older, original 168. Here's why. The original was a great phone and was the closest thing to the original version that was out there, but the i9 is even closer. There are several reasons for this, and I will discuss them all, but probably the most compelling is that the new one has Java support which means that you can download third party software and applications which can greatly expand the phone. Many like this because it allows for the Windows applications that were lacking before. You have Outlook, MSN, Excel, PowerPoint and thousands of others as well as games and applications that just were not possible before.

The 9 model also has much more memory available. The original could expand to 2GB. This one can hold up to 8GB. It used to be really rare to see one packing this much of a punch. It was more common to see them sold with 4GB, but that is beginning to change as you see more and more of the 8GB models being offered.

In terms of appearance, the i9 looks more like a newer generation phone. It's a good bit sleeker, smaller, and lighter and is the least clunky of all of the offerings until now.

It's also a quad band, or even if you are one of the few people on the 850 MHZ band, you will be just fine with this phone. It's covered by nearly all GSM networks and carriers. There isn't many places, or many networks, that this phone can't go. All of the major names are covered here.

This phone also includes the “shake and tilt" control feature which the original iClone didn't have. This allows you to advance the phone and change the image with a flick of your wrist. It's very intuitive and many people prefer this to having to scroll around.

Finally, the last reason that I think that the i9 is such a brisk selling phone is because it has “dual sim active. " This means that you don't have to switch back and forth between the two - both can be online at once. You can browse the web and talk at the same time. You don't have to worry about missing any calls.

Of course, this new phone has all of the standard features in addition to the upgrades. It's pretty well known at this point that these phones allow web surfing, messaging, movies, and music. There is also a built in camera / web cam, e book reader, Bluetooth, and FM radio.

In terms of money, the i9 does not cost much more than the original. You can often find them in the low $100 range. Considering all that you are getting, my review is that yes, this is a great phone that is absolutely worth the money if a clone is what you are looking for.
