It is free publicity for HTC.
In their current state, they need this the most.
Let media stoke more fire to this "HTC latest copies Apple iPhone" drama while turning a blind eye to "Apple latest copies HTC"
Heck who knows Apple and HTC are colluding to get as much publicity as possible for both.
Rahills, 23 Oct 2015obviously htc copied apple design. they now have no excuses left to defend themselves. shame o... moreHTC has the most beautiful design in the world from its begining. Nobody can beat htc in terms of beauty and build quality. Iphones are really ugly on the front with that large bezels which has the poorest screen to body ratio. Even the chinese phones have bigger screens with the same body dimensions. Apple cant even put stereo speakers on that large bezels. The home key is the other thing that makes iphone ugly. Altogether the front design looks like that of a cheap phone but only when you hold it in your hand you feel the premium built of an iphone whereas the back of the iphone has good looking design for iphone 4 and 5 series. The protuding camera of iphone 6 makes its little ugly otherwise is good looking. As usual the front is ugly on iphone 6 series too.
dont always say samsung company copy apple, samsung have own design,but apple copy htc
Rahills, 23 Oct 2015in terms of "copy cut", apple hardly copies something from android world. but on the... moreApple copied loads.
IOS features such as giving more access and customizability, widgets,power saving mode, 3dtouch features, etc.
Bigger phones and phablets, button layout and metal unibody, stylus, fingerprint sensor. Also releasing the phone in more than two colours, which started with their failed attempt at a midrange.
Rahills, 23 Oct 2015apple is the world's most "strict" company when it comes to "design". when... moreWhy you think that
Apple is the only company to offer high end smartphones and they only know what to do
Just mind your words and come out of apple's prison devices and see there are so many on companies providing high end devices
Rahills, 23 Oct 2015apple is the world's most "strict" company when it comes to "design". when... moreLook at Desire 816 from March 2014
Same shape and angles on back site (antenna not visible)
cam top left, same size.
iPhone 6 is without doubt an exact copy of this. With the antenna design of HTC ONE M7.
Also many Android features are a visible as copy in iOS.
Good artists copy, great artists steal he continues, We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2015Well those who are underestimating HTC
it was the biggest company of smartphones in 2008-10 ... morebash htc. I remember windows mobile running htc diamond. so innovative, ya. they got first big screen 4.3" 4.7" windows mobiles.
remember htc sensation XE? a horrible mess.
nokia and samsung had the real quality products back then.
Rahills, 23 Oct 2015htc audio sucks. correct your statement. compare with a sony topdog then talk.Read any review on Macarena HTC tops in audio department
It's far beyond any others reach
Go and read first
Well those who are underestimating HTC
it was the biggest company of smartphones in 2008-10
Then due to their poor marketing skills and high ppricing killed them
There were sony and Samsung to offer cheap phones with inferior quality.
And yeah bro HTC is class even now.
One can't stop looking at HTC one or desire phones.
Only thing that took company down was its poor marketing skills
Every person whom I met in india agrees that HTC is best in Android and only true competitor to Apple in quality phones
This design is ugly.. Not worth it to argue.. So stupid... Hahaha...LOL
Everyone copied everyone else, no exception, though NOT all would admit it!
apple is the world's most "strict" company when it comes to "design". when it's adopted it's not gonna change for years. and they do it seriously after a lot research. it's unique, special and boring at the same time. and it can bend too!!!
Why such a tech giant like apple need to copy a cheap marketless company like htc? who's htc??
I wonder if Jony Ive have ever heard the name htc in his lifetime! Shame on Jony and the entire apple R&D team. lol
Nearly all the phones from any manufacturer released within the last 2 years all look the same. Everyone is copying off everyone. We need a manufacturer to come out with a drastic new design!!
Ale, 23 Oct 2015Oh please they all 'copy' each other.
I do find the following things funny though:
1. be... moreApple also copies Android
It copies Android killer feature drop down notification bar.
Many features were added to ios after Android
And yeah u won't accept but according to many reviewers Google now is better than siri and Cortlana
Now for Apple vs HTC
HTC has the history of being a very innovative company.
And it still is it was one m7 to feature optical image stabilization.
It's HTC having superior audio than any other company out there.
I know camera is not that good but it was the first to improve low light photography.
First to introduce costum user experience
Have much better looking phones in their list.
Beats was acquired by them first. Which increases beats market value.
acang83, 23 Oct 2015nowadays it is funny to see people.. always argument on everything from religion, race, and in... moreNo argument = no improvement .
The one who invented round wheal must be hard to argue with people like you who want to use square wheal .
At the end of the day after all is said and done there is one winner and one loser. Which is which will be determined by numbers.
Honest Observation, 23 Oct 2015Good Joke HTC. Meanwhile at HTC http://i.imgur.com/Hf1cnFd.gifI have to agree on this one. HTC may invent the metal back cover trend with strip line but they copy every other aspect of Iphone6. The rounded camera and flash. Its position moved to the top most. The white lining. Well, I guess we can't say Samsung copied Iphone anymore. HTC just take it to a whole new level.
