All these smartphones want to be like the iPhone

It is said that the highest form of flattery is imitation. From the iPhone 5s to the 6s, the iPhone’s design lines have triggered an iPhone lookalike movement. A number of manufacturers are pushing hard at giving their users and fans a look and feel very similar to what obtains on the 5s, 6 or 6s. Of course, that isn’t a new thing, but the movement of iPhone-lookalikes is growing almost on a daily basis.

    1. Xiaomi has got the iPhone lookalike thing down to a fine art. Besides the design of the phone, even the user interface has been skinned heavily to look like iOS.

  1. I agree, but the fact is; iPhone is iPhone and no other can be like it. But personally I don’t like Apple.
