Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? It would explain the Doogee DG580, a OnePlus One clone reviewed by forums member dragon2knight back in November
. Here's another: ASK Computer Technology's SP588
. I first spied it at a mobile kiosk in the same mall where I found the world's one and only Xiaomi store
, and again in a shop on Hong Kong's famous Apliu Street
It's not an exact
clone of the OPO—it's screen size is diagonally half an inch smaller—but like the Doogee it looks like there are more similarities than there are differences. I'm not sure if ASK even ships to this part of the world—some technical error on their site is preventing me from signing up for an account. What's interesting for me is that I saw zero
evidence of the OnePlus One anywhere in Hong Kong, whereas this thing popped up twice.
