    Hello there is someone who posted a iphone 5 for sale on a local site for selling items he says it is a iphone has pictures of the phone in question not sure if they are his pictures for sure but look it i tried confirming the serial on apples website with no luck and now looking closely to the picture of the iphone is says designed by apolle I THINK but it looks like a legit iphone but i am very hesitant on buying it. it does not look any different from your average iphone so i think it is like a 4g maybe but hes selling it for like $225 so i am not sure what to do the guy seems very legit to he is a doctor im pretty sure can anyone help me out on this one.

    There is currently no "iphone5". He's either wrong, or it's a fake, a knockoff or something else. no one in Vietnam is selling an actual "iphone5".

    "Black Super Slim Apple 5 Copy Phone. Comes in original packing, box,
    2 batteries, charger and head phones."

    The words "copy phone" weren't a red flag?

    A legit iPhone would also not come with 2 batteries because it voids your warranty to change the battery due to the fact that you have to disassemble the entire thing.

    Also, if you look at the pictures, it isn't even running a legit iOS. The Apple logo on the back is not correct, and the "iPhone" font on the back is not correct.

    If Apple releases a POS like this in 2012, I will never buy anything from them again.

    Buy it, then let us know how you find iOS 5 and in particular the Auto Punctuate App.
