The $3 Phone That Has Gotten On Apple’s Nerves

By  | 

This literally broke the smartphone news. It had already garnered much attention when Noida-based Ringing Bells announced its super cheap smartphone at just $3, and now it’s going to make more heads turned with the problems that are seemingly surfacing, because of what Apple just did.

And there’s also the fact that the 251 doesn’t look anything like their photos on their official Ringing Bell’s website (check image above). That’s because you’ll be able to see a shiny brand name that says Adcom emblazoned on the top of the display. Sure, you’ll be thinking that maybe it’s a joint venture between Ringing Bells and Adcom, or maybe the latter is the sole manufacturer of the phone, but in actual fact, nope. Adcom has been denying allegations made for manufacturing the phone and we are all left back to square one again.

Freedom 251 may be the world’s cheapest smartphone, but it’s not that it doesn’t come with a price. Apple has already started filing complaints because of the amount of copyright infringement that they’ve violated onto their 251 phone. If you take a look at the comparison picture below (Freedom 251 on the left, and iPhone’s on the right), you’ll see that most (if not all) of the app icons are a complete rip-off. Plagiarism experts, if we have to say so.


Oh, and did we mention that the 251 bears an uncanny resemblance to that of the iPhone 4s? Tell us your thoughts about this phone and if it’s really that thoughtfully-made for the financially weak?
