I did not expect this from GSMArena, kind of a letdown. That design is clear from the original HTC One M7 which I assume is where Apple iPhone 6 got its "inspiration". YES, HTC One M7 (Early 2013) came out way before Apple iPhone 6 (Late 2014).

Lawsuit?? Oh come on, GMSArena, HTC use the metal Unibody way before Apple (HTC sensation, HTC Desire, HTC Desire S, ONE M7, please, come on)

At least they manage to minimalize the platic antenna areas on the back. Nice design though.
Oh my god! The BLACK HTC LOGO BAR is still there! Are you fucking kidding me?!?!?!?!?
Interestingly apple borrowed design of HTC M series, actually more over than that, what HTC done until now, and gsmarena can't see that.
It wasn't iphone first rounded phone but apple won the big price of USA

what happens if they place the camera & flash module on the left? okay on the right then?
Everyone complaining about sony bezels, have you seen HTC?! It's like another display under the main display!
Once again, they made the stupid decision of putting the htc logo on a huge bottom bezel...
Looks like an iPhone 6.
Reason because the iPhone 6 has the distinctive lines in the back bezel. These obvious lines are near the top and bottom of the back. Why iPhone 6? No phone ever had this design prior to the iPhone 6. Anyone who disagrees is a blind Ihater.
AnonD-411799, 25 Aug 2015Oh yeah? then why are they using m7's design on m9? so you admit HTC gives consumers old desig... moreMate, who gives a damn whether HTC are using an old design? That's not the point - the point in question is whether the Aero copied the iPhone 6 design. You're just averting the question into something totally different.
The round edges are nothing significant and you've picked the most immaterial "similarity" out of the bunch. That's almost akin to saying something like, "HTC copied Apple because HTC made a rectangular-shaped phone" - utter redundant.
For those that think HTC came out with the metal body first I think you need to go back further to around 2010? and check out the Nokia N8 it did have plastic tops and bottoms though
