"Premium" brands need a certain design language and consistency. You can't be 'this' one day and suddenly 'that' the next, which is where Samsung went so wrong. Xiaomi has been more consistent from the start. That they've taken their inspiration from Apple was never a secret...
Lumia phones followed that standard very closely too under Nokia, they were unmistakeable.
The smartphone world will soon be dominated by Chinese phone makers.
Xiaomi is the only company that levels with Apple. I mean Apple is that low. In case you didn't get the point
iphone 7 plus ripoff. -_- my best bet is that chinese phones starting this year till 2018 will look like iphone 7 plus if iphone7s plus won't change their design.
Cphcph98, 03 Oct 2016Xiaomi gone worse and worse this few years, this is exactly an iPhone's back render. This isn't just a render, as explained below it's been real(minus the 2 cameras) since January 2015

Hargs, 03 Oct 2016- Can't wait to see this phone bend and break easily by #JerryRigEverything. CHeap but not durable..Mi5 is the first from Xiaomi to bend like that, and even I was surprised as Xiaomi had made fun of Apple and the iPhone 6 Plus (along with everyone else http://blog.gsmarena.com/samsung-continues-fun-bendgate-htc-kitkat-join/ ) with their Mi Note withstanding the same test.
But that's all it was, hype, companies capitalizing on Apple. Normal people in skinny jeans don't normally force their mobile down into their crotch, it's just uncomfortable. Even the iPhone 7 easily looses its water resistance if flexed too much.

Anonymous, 03 Oct 2016Only interested in nougat on Miui.no difference really, it would still look like ios
It's no surprise I guess ignorance is ignorance, until they're educated. So here goes:
Mi Note that came out in January 2015:
Black edition announced April 2015 right here on GSM:
The back is identical to this leak.
This shape is completely original to Xiaomi, Samsung introduced the exact shape in August 2015 with their Note 5:
Why you cmpare it with the Jet Black iPhone? They always had a glossy finish with the colors! Get information before you comment!

Are u getting a good product with value for money... That is it.
Now a days, every one is copying something from some one...
no problem with copying design... look at other electronic stuffs such as television, notebook or air cond, they have almost same design... most people dont care about it...

I think they should go just one step further and change the top front of the phone to something a bit less like the iPhone.
