In an online review of a clone of the HTC Diamond 2 phone in China, the Shanzai blog argues that the fake could be better than the original. The Chinese site says that it’s a “great” copy of the new HTC Diamond2 even down to the HTC logo and that what’s more interesting is that the hardware configuration of the clone seems to have better specs than the HTC phone.

Further investigation by the reviewer does make him worry that the fake is also faking the hardware profile data – but even if HTC wins this time, it does suggest an interesting trend towards an electronics world with a level playing field.
