Does it really matter what the phone looks like? All phone manufacturers copy each each other. The HTC One M7 inspired the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 inspired other manufacturers, such as Samsung, Huawei, and Meizu, to name a few. It is about giving the phone the best look and satisfying the customer. For example, The Huawei Nexus 6P is a great phone, but looks so ugly, so people will be slightly put off buying one. Meizu and Xiaomi phones may not be as powerful, but the looks are a drawing factor.
For me, it is a balance of both. Good looks and specs are a winner. If this is the phone's look, plus it has excellent specs, I will buy one.
This is the bigining of the end... bye-bye HTC.

What's with this crap that the phone looks Iphone 6ish? It was iphone who had copied or stolen, or whatever the term to be used, designs from HTC One M7. To date it has been my favorite and the most beautiful phone I ever owned. I can only laugh at some jingle bells' comments on the HTC's designs being copied from iphone! What rubbish!?
Akash, 11 Oct 2015You are not crazy...this phone looks sexy in this dark colour!Agree. I think the dark one is going to look and feel very smart indeed.
This phone is a real dummy anyway.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2015excuse me iphone 6 copied the htc one design that border line Well said my friend. Anybody claiming HTC has stolen iPhones design has obviously not seen HTC one (M7) or has forgotten its design. In fact, it is iPhone that stole HTC 's beautiful design.
The logo just really breaks the balance of the phone. And the speakers being on the bottom and not symmetric/paired off isnt helping.
It looks like any HTC phone.
Yes it does look similar to Apple. But Apple copied HTC and that's why HTC is not worried about a copyright infringement lawsuit from Apple.
Cant meet Chinese Manufacturer standard

I don't have problem with iPhone design though I just want them with smaller bezel. Now what HTC doing is make a copy with asymmetrical design while retain the big bezel. It's worse ever. The only good thing is I like some of its dark color variant better.
I like it. Nice refresh from all the M series. Thin sexy and smooth. Ill get it. Android / Apple who cares. truth is, a lot of manufacturers take a bit from here and a bit from there and so HTC have combined two accents. Nice. Cant wait.
I remember HTC M7 long time ago before someone steal their design .....and used it as it own and then (F)people start to say HTC copy other design.....it not about Fan or not but the true......you may say RIP HTC is true because their expensive device but on design is other story....
