While the popularity of the iPhone certainly cannot be denied, there are those who are unable or unwilling to purchase iPhones. There are several good quality iPhone clones that fit the bill nicely. Basically, any phone that has a large touch-screen may be deemed an iPhone clone, but below is a discussion of the ten phones that most closely match the iPhone in more than just looks, but also in the features and applications that they provide. The Samsung Instinct looks very similar to the iPhone and includes a highly functional GPS system. It even surpasses the iPhone with a much faster data transfer rate. The Sony Xperia has a slightly wider screen than the iPhone and runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 which may be preferable for PC users. It is capable of running nine active desktops at the same time. It also differs from the iPhone in that it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Firstly remove the SIM tray – do this by inserting the paper clip in the hole on the topside of the iPhone next to the power button, when the clip is inserted, the SIM tray should eject. Next, use the case opener to remove the plastic back of the iPhone. Lay these two components next to the paper labels, after you have fitted the replacement screen into your iPhone you will need to reverse the order of these instructions to reassemble the iPhone. For this reason, I would suggest placing them furthest from you next to the aluminum paper label. The next step is to remove the two small screws on either side of the back securing the metal casing, and another screw located top, middle of where you removed the plastic back – placing these on the paper label. Once you have completed this, take the case opener again and carefully run it along both sides of the iPhone to loosen the back away from the frame – you will notice the metal back is secured by a wire ribbon, carefully detach this from the main section of the iPhone, not the metal back end.

This follows recent plans at the University of Missouri School of Journalism that will ensure all have iPhones as practicing journos are taught 21st Century skills such as (according to The Guardian): ‘community management, user interface design, crowdsourcing, data mining,’ as well as being plugged into Twitter and Flickr. Finally, in the true spirit of communication, the latest development in the world of iPhone seems to be helping people talk. Unsurprising really, but I am not describing phone calls and text messages. For sufferers of Autism, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy, speech aids have traditionally cost thousands of pounds and been difficult to carry around. However, an app developed in the US is allowing users to tap on-screen icons that relate and speak simple sentences ranging from requests to emotions.
