Believe it or not, there are people out there who would like to have an iPhone-like handset but with Android as the OS. We’ve seen a lot of iPhone clones in the past, and JiaYu’s G5 will be almost exactly what some of these cross-hearted people want.
The G5’s stainless steel construction matches the iPhone 5 at every angle, but some key differences make the G5 somewhat ‘unique’.
First off, the G5 doesn’t possess a physical front button like the iPhone, and the side volume toggles and power control are not the same shape nor are they lined up with the iPhone’s design. The headphone jack is also located at the top of the phone, rather than at the bottom like the iPhone.
Internally, the G5 is anything but iPhone-like. The G5 is powered by MediaTek’s MT6589 quad-core processor and comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear camera (3MP front), and Google’s Android OS. It also has two battery options, an 1850mAh to keep the phone looking slim, and a 3000mAh for extended power—though, this option will require a different back plate and adds additional bulk to the device.
