The girls have their obscenely fake designer handbags; the guys have their imitation phones.
This is another 5800 clone. It’s not a faithful imitation of the real 5800. Instantly you can see it’s plumper and the back is silver.
Strangely though, I actually thinking it looks nicer than the actual 5800. This clone has changed a few things on the positive side:
- If the clone was going to change a few good things is that they made the black rim bezel less prominent (although they should have just got rid of it altogether).
- The stylus is thicker and longer. Better grip in the hand. Yes I’m still talking about a stylus.
- Media button (if it was real) would have been better placed for portrait use.
Below shows the 5800 with clones A (positively altered one) and B (the hashed awful one).

You can get the Clone A version of the 5800 from dashshopping at just $113.93, as well as a full list of features including the same resolution 640×360 screen, dual sim card and 2x1800mAh battery. That said, be warned you will get what you paid for.
If you’re looking for an even cheaper and a more closer copy of the 5800, then check out this video (from leanhdigital.com.vn / dailymobile.se) of yet another clone, by NOKLA (nok”L”a). This one’s even cheaper at $107.
Its touch and UI seem peculiarly nippy for a fake. I could actually see myself buying that for my little sister. Touch screen, camera, music, loud speakers and if it breaks or gets lost, not that bad as it wasn’t worth that much.
