Hello Klick is a Pressy Android Button Clone that Sells for as low as $2

Last year, Pressy launched a Kickstarter campaign for a physical button that fits into the audio jack of your Android mobile devices, and was sold for $17 in their extra successful campaign. Now you can pre-order a Pressy button for about $27, or a bit less if you order in quantities. Last month, Xiaomi showed a blatant clone of Pressy with theirĀ Mi Click that they sell for 4.9 RMB (~0.80 USD) in China. Some sellers are even re-selling the items on Aliexpress for nearly $10. It turns out there appears to be quite a few clones of the Pressy button, including Hello Klick which you can buy for $4 to $5, as even as low as $2 per piece if you order 10 Klicks. And these prices include international shipping. It’s also on Taobao starting at 4.99 RMB.

Hello_KlickIt seems some models come with a stereo jack, whereas others come with a mono jack. I have no idea if it matters, I’d guess not. Nevertheless, they all work the same way:

  1. Insert the 3.5mm jack in your headphone jack
  2. Download and install Klick app. The website is in Chinese, but just click on the large red button to download and install the apk.
  3. Assign codes to tasks. For example: One click -> Home Screen, Two clicks -> Camera, Long press -> flash light, etc…

I don’t own the Klick, but I’ve installed the app, and all text is in English.

RMB 4.9, which is $0.80

    Actually I wonder if Hello Klick and Mi Click are not simply the same product… Even marketing material are very similar.

    Anyway, perhaps cellphone manufacturers google etc will realise *people like physical buttons*!

    Somebody left a message saying Hello Klick was invented before Pressy comes to market.
    I had to delete it, because of rough, racist and insulting language. But it would be interesting to know if Pressy actually got their idea from the Chinese manufacturers, instead of the other way around.
