Default [BEWARE] HTC One M8 Clone is out!

Hi XDA !
I don't know if I should be impressed or scared about Chinese's latest creation. They managed to manufacture a fake HTC One M8 within one month.
All potentials buyers should now double check before buying anything on online shops (such as eBay, craiglist etc...)

Now there's a thing we can easily notice... it's not aluminum but all plastic .

See pictures and tell me what you think about that










EDIT: English unboxing for more details

It's not surprising me. It happens on every flagship in China. Even the iPhone clones run Android 😂😂
