HTC, yeah how are they doing now?
You buy what you want, nobody is questioning that. But you cannot deny the market trend of the majority. It would be foolish if a company is not trying to go with the wave of trend. LG, HTC, all are not doing well business wise, while Xiaomi, Oppo, the copycats, are. CanÂ’t deny that.

I really not sure why someone has to like Xiaomi beside price, it's just keeps copying Apple design hardware and software with horrible MIUI skin. Typical Chinese copycat
Xiaomi sells cheap phones because they do not invest on innovations and just copy the designs of other company brand WTF! and people's say there phones are cheap this is the reason.
No innovation = No investment
hence cheap product = cheap price

HTC - they've always gone against the grain and in actual fact they started Android with their designs and by being the first device and the most successful of all time, adding the squeeze gesture isn't exactly what Sammy and Apple would do.
From a personal perspective i think if you buy either Apple or indeed these days Samsung, then you're literally walking with the crowd, so you actually like these devices or you're one of many who just buy for status.
I don't do that and most Android users who began with Android don't either.
So soon we'll find a lot Apple's fake cases for the Note 5 Pro in online stores. Choose your Apple's case!

One of the purpose that majority of people buying phones is for status symbol. Currently, the top dogs in brand awareness are iPhones and Galaxy S. Obviously the lesser OEMs will want to mimic the appearance of the top dogs. Just like lesser fashion companies copying the higher brand's design/feel.
I really dislike apple but I hate these fake brands who just copy everything
seriously..why so many phone want to copy apple so called "ugly" design? are this phonemaker have no more idea?

I don't know if these OEM's are not ashamed of themselves copying design of other manufacturers. What's happening to them. Are they not paying for their own designers?
