When I first had a glance at iPhone X, I couldn’t help admiring the gorgeous design. The only thing that, sort of, prevented me from branding it as out-of-the-box was—the Notch. Initially, I just didn’t like the tiny cutout that seemed to prick my eyes. However, as time went by, I made peace with the cutout.
They say, “If something hurts your soul at the very first interaction, the pain is never forgotten—even if it brings the storm of bliss later.” Though my eyes no longer find notch a roadblock, they have always wished a life beyond the bumper…
Android Phones with iPhone X-Like Notch
When I got to know that Apple was planning to slim down the screen bumper, I thought the tech giant had heard my prayer. But just when I started to breathe a bit easier, a host of Android smartphones with iPhone X-like notch flooded the Internet. Surprisingly, all of them looked almost a carbon copy of Apple’s flagship. Take a look at them to believe!
One Plus 6
One Plus is widely claimed to be the one that produces smartphones that give high-end flagship a run for their own money. The company always claims to be in a different league. Hence, I’m really surprised to come to know how desperate it is to get its upcoming smartphone fashioned into an iPhone X avatar!
Come on, LG! You can do much better than copying the design of iPhone. A company as big and reputed as you doesn’t have to emulate anyone to survive. Ideally, I would love to see you being just LG as whenever you have tried to be yourself you have looked so adorable.
I respect your recent metamorphosis rise and also believe that you can give Samsung and Apple a strong fight. But to be number one, you have to bring in something different than your biggest rivals don’t have.
I have come to know that you are going to launch three cool P20 series smartphones. The only thing that has saddened me is that they all look a blatant copy of iPhone X. Seriously; I didn’t expect that from you—especially after that the ruckus you tried to create about Face ID’s failed demo!
As one of the fastest growing smartphone companies in the world, you have everything to be a showstopper! I liked the design of your R9 and also recommended some of my friends who like using Android. But when I came to know that your F7 looks so similar to iPhone X, I felt a tad disappointed.
ASUS Zenfone 5Z
When everyone else seems to be so charmed by the design of iPhone X, it’s really hard to resist. I truly understand that.
I hope your mid-budget smartphone with the stunning 6.2-inch all-screen display, 8MP front, and 8MP+12MP dual rear cameras do really well!
Having snapped a few looks at the leaked images of Vivo V9, I can say they look enormously attractive, but the smartphone looks no different than the ones mentioned above. I just hope you can pull off the gorgeous edge-to-edge display and raw power of iPhone X!
Other Lesser Known Smartphone Makers are also In the Fray…
There are three more smartphones like Leagoo S9, Oukitel U18 and Sharp Aquos S3 that are also attracting a lot of eyeballs thanks to their design. From outside, the only thing that seems to be common on all of them is the—low-price!
Seeing so many smartphones with the notch, I have decided to wear glass to safeguard my eyes from top-notch cutouts. I was trying my best to run away from the notch; now thousands seem to surround me.
Apple, if your ugly cutout can create such a huge sensation, imagine what would happen if an elegant one is unleashed from your kitty. Truly, your name as the trendsetter stands vindicated…
