Lately, I heard some people arguing intensely about how Android beat the iPhone and how iPhone beat the android and so on, but honestly, in customization Android beat the iPhone and in hardware and software integration, iPhone overtakes the Android.
Though, am not hear to argue the superior or support any phone maker. But recently, Android phone makers have been cloning the iPhone X. Have you ever seen Apple released a curved edged smartphone that looks exactly like the Samsung Galaxy S? No, of course not.
Apple do steal from Android as well but it’s not exactly the same thing, but Android makers just steal the key elements of Apple’s hardware design and even the unique Apple X design.
Android makers like ASUS, Huawei, LG and even Sharp are among the culprit. See the list of Android phones they made that looks exactly like the iPhone X design:
ASUS Zenfone 5, Ulefone T2 Pro, Leagoo S9, Huawei P20, Doogee V, OPPO R15, LG G7, UMIDIGO Z2, Oukitel U18, OWWO X, HOTWAV SYMBOL S3, ESSENTIAL PH1, BlackView X, ALOES, WIKO WAVE 2, Noa N10, Noa N9, Ila X, Ulefone T2, Xiaolagiao S6, Goophone X and Sharp Aquos S3.
See photos below:
There are 23 pictures above that I listed, but only 20 phones did the copycats minus the iPhone X picture. And also, minus the Essential PH1 which has a different type of notch and was also unveiled before the iPhone X, while Wiko Wave 2 copies the Essential PH1 notch rather than the iPhone X’s own.
Now, only 20 Android phones did the copycats, just according to this topic title. So, I think we need some innovation. Enough with the copying.
What’s your say concerning this issue?
