15 Amazingly Bad Tech Knock-Offs

GooPhone i5 & 5C

Do you remember when Apple and Google combined forces and made an iPhone/Android hybrid? Yeah, that didn’t happen, but apparently a company in China certainly thinks no one will notice their ultimate smartphone mashup. That’s right, you too can own a knock-off iPhone that runs on Android for about half the price of an Apple product. They even have knockoffs of the 5s and 5c with multiple colors.

Elephone P6

The Samsung brand certainly isn’t immune to counterfeit products, either. One of the most popular knock-off mobile phones is acopy of the Samsung Galaxy S4. At least with the Elephone P6, the correct operating system is included. Both of these phones run on Android, but the performance is very different. If patent law wasn’t so loose, Samsung’s patent attorneys would be all over this.

Which Stars Turned Down Legendary Roles?

Matt Damon - ‘Avatar’ and ‘The Dark Knight’

With Academy Award acclaim from the outset of his career, thanks to penning and playing the lead in ‘Good Will Hunting,’ Matt Damon is no stranger to cinematic success, especially when you consider he has starred in the ’Ocean’s’ franchise, the ‘Bourne’ trilogy, and ‘Saving Private Ryan.’

Damon did, however, pass up on two of the highest-grossing movies of all time. He turned down the lead in James Cameron’s ’Avatar’ (the highest-grossing film in history) due to a scheduling conflict with ‘The Bourne Ultimatum;’ and he passed on the role of Harvey Dent in ’The Dark Knight’ due to filming conflicts with Clint Eastwood’s ‘Invictus.’

Leonardo DiCaprio - Dirk Diggler in ‘Boogie Nights’

Leonardo DiCaprio starred in the film that stood as the highest-grossing film for years and the blockbuster that made him a bona fide movie star, ‘Titanic;’ but, the film he passed on to make it still stands as the biggest regret of his career. 

Leo was offered the iconic role of Dirk Diggler in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Boogie Nights’ before Mark Wahlberg dug into the starring role. DiCaprio told GQ, “‘Boogie Nights’ is a movie I loved and I wish I would’ve done…I’m a huge fan of [director] Paul Thomas Anderson, but the first time I met him for that role I hadn’t really seen much of his previous work. Now I love that movie.”
