Self-praise is no recommendation! Every Tom, Dick and Harry seems to be battle ready to take on the “The Rock.” First off, they laugh off the unmatched records of the champ, and then they go all out to beat him. But when they badly fail to make a match with the too powerful opponent, those self-styled wrestlers blatantly copy everything that The Rock possesses.
Worse, once those newbies have completely transformed themselves and imitated everything that the champion had spent years to garner, they start boasting and pass off some of the most unacceptable comments. Though I don’t lose sleep by that sensational stuff, it does turn me off—at times. At other times, they seem to be too funny for me to even think of…
Why Android Phone Makers like Xiaomi and Huawei Keep Firing Salvos At iPhone X
Well, the anecdotes sum up the entire story. For several years, the iPhone has been endlessly envied, blatantly copied and publicly laughed off by some of the major smartphone makers. And iPhone X—which is widely believed to be the best smartphone that Apple has ever made—is no different.
The other day, Xiaomi compared its Mi Mix 2S with iPhone X and stressed that it has surpassed Apple’s flagship in many features. Though Mi Mix 2S does look nice, it can’t go head-to-head against the iPhone that’s the premium pick of those who want to have seamless performance, excellent gaming experience, experience top-notch mobile photography and more significantly; best apps!
“We are comparing to iPhone X because people say it is the best phone. We just want to show we surpassed the best in many features,” – Xiaomi co-founder Lei Jun
Who can forget the video in which Huawei mocked iPhone X Face ID branding it too faulty to work? But now various reports are suggesting that the Chinese smartphone maker is burning the midnight oil to create the true competitor of Apple’s advanced facial recognition technology. It only goes on to show how much they are obsessed with the word—iPhone!
When Apple unveiled the iPhone X, several Android phone makers made scathing remarks about Notch, calling it a design flaw. But now, most of them have altogether embraced the same faulty design in their flagship devices. Moreover, they not just flaunt the notch but also call it a better shot than that of iPhone X. Are you kidding me?
Oh, Apple’s biggest rival “Samsung” just doesn’t seem to get enough of Animoji. The world’s largest smartphone vendor has completely copied the concept and even bragged about it during the Galaxy S9 launch event. When told that the AR Moji looks a carbon copy of Animoji, the South Korean tech giant said it’s nothing more than just a coincident. Just a look at the history can tell you the real story whether it intentionally copied Animoji or it’s just an accident that seems to be perfectly planned.
From what I can see, all of them closely follow iPhone and try their utmost to take the shine away from the device. But once they realize that it’s not their cup of tea, they altogether copy everything on offer. Surprisingly, they still believe their device is far superior to Apple’s flagship that may not look dazzling, luxurious, specs-enamored but it has got enough to win over people who adore class!
