If you’re going to clone one of 2014’s hottest Android flagships, you might as well clone others, right? Goophone certainly thinks so. It just launched the Goophone M8, a smartphone that bears an uncanny resemblance to the all new (and still-unannounced) HTC One. Not that the similarities are much more than skin deep, mind you. Goophone’s attempt at keepin’ it real fake uses capacitive keys instead of the new One’s on-screen buttons, and we doubt that the middling (if octa-core) processor, 1GB of RAM and 3G data speeds will have HTC breaking a sweat. It only costs $230 to get Goophone’s knock-off, though. And hey, it comes in gold — if you’re only looking for an ostentatious design, you might as well save some cash.
