As mentioned, look at the above link and look at the amount of hot deals for phones sold on aliexpress on this site, there wouldn't be tons of hot deals and thousands of positive comments if it was a scam. Aliexpress are bigger than amazon, they don't really sell fakes.
Aliexpress is a marketplace like ebay rather than a single store, there certainly are stores on there that sell fakes/copies.

And of course you're buying from outside the EU, so expect VAT, customs charges and expensive after sales support.
