While Apple next-generation iPhone is still over a month away from being announced, a number of clones from various companies have hit the market to try and capitalize on customer anticipation. In a video posted to his channel, YouTuber Jonathan Morrison took Goophone's "i6" clone to Hollywood Boulevard to see if people would see the Android-based device as a real iPhone 6.


Individuals were told that the clone was the iPhone 6 and came with a number of new features, including an eight-day battery life, an "A10" processor, and a high-resolution 8K sapphire display with 3D capabilities. Most people in fact believed those features, with one man proclaiming the phone felt "super fast" and another saying that the display "looked much clearer" than the display on his iPhone 5s.

At one point, a young individual in a crowd asks "How many milliamps does it have?" Morrison replies with "7,000", causing the person to respond "How does that fit in there?!" Others were also told about additional features, with one woman believing that the phone's photos were too high of a resolution for its screen, and a man in awe over the claimed "26-core" processor.

After being asked about Apple's efforts in comparison to Samsung's, one man even claims that the device is "really great" and that Apple has "caught up with this one." Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel pulled a similar prank on Hollywood Boulevard last month, with his team showing pedestrians a $20 Casio watch and claiming it to be Apple's long-awaited iWatch.

This is your average consumer. People on this board will argue for days over specs, but Apple continues to focus on features and ease of use.

Americans by any chance?

As I've started traveling more, I've found that these people aren't just in America - they're everywhere. I don't know how it's come to be that we got the reputation, because you could gotten the same material in America, Canada, the UK, or India.

These kinds if videos are just stupid. Just because someone doesn't stay up to daye on every bit of Apple news doesn't make them dumb. How many people here would know the difference between a new Windows Phone or one that was last year's model? Or a new Mustang and one that was a year old. This youtuber needs to get a life. Let's have real news and rumors on this site and stay away from junk like this.
