Another reason why some people abandon original phones to buy fake phones is that it is always cheap. Yeah! Very cheap, not to be compared to that of original phone. Here is a story you may want to hear, A friend of mine asked me to order a mobile phone for him online, I told him the price and he was like damn! It is too costly.
