This clone is very similar to the original iPhone 4 and as soon as you get it on your hands you'll notice that it was really well built.
The connector to charger / PC is on the bottom of the phone and the 3,5 mm headphone jack is on the top along with the power button.
Without back cover and the battery, you have the access to the two SIM slots. The one in the bottom is the SIM2 slot, while the upper one is the SIM1 slot. You can also see the microSD slot on the right.
I won't detail so much about the functionality because it has the same features as the HD9. Due to the lower screen resolution (A6 has HVGA screen resolution) when compared to the HD9 (with WVGA screen resolution), you get a noticeable speed increase. And of course, the screen is smaller, which also helps in terms of battery life. With a moderate phone usage, I've noticed that battery can last three days without putting it into charge.
This smartphone comes with a pre-installed Android ROM that includes an iOS theme, making it look almost like the original. If you like, you can then flash the ROM with the pure Android interface.
I guess that more than reading, you like to see it running, so here's a video of A6:
This video was made with the Android pure UI ROM. If you like you can see the next video, which shows the phone running the original ROM, with the iOS theme.
As you can see from the video, phone runs Android very smoothly. This is obviously the right resolution (HVGA) for the used processor.
- Dual SIM Dual Standby
- Great battery life for a dual SIM smartphone
- Doesn't support 3G networks
