Who copied the iPhone X best?

Top bezel protrusions, vertical corner camera kits, there is a veritable fashion trend among phones low and high this year. In the Android world, there are those that don't go after the iPhone X design compromise dubbed the "notch" (Samsung, Sony, HTC) and then... there is everyone else, it seems.

Let's just say that Apple can essentially buyout Android if it were a company.

Android introduced the Notch first with Essentials PH1 so, stop saying Android copied Apple please

I hate these fake news articles. Essential was the first phone with a notch. Please get the facts straight. Apple copied Essential.

The iPhone X wasn't first with the notch so the question is redundant. If the writer had any brains the question would have been worded differently.

The X notch is completely different than your argument of the Essential Phone notch. Go ahead and state your case why?

Laughing at all this mess...If you are doing a notch, you have lazy designers that like to take short cuts...that is all. Thankfully HTC have great designers and I will never have to put up with such mediocrity.

Once again PhoneArena writes a worshipping apple article.......Where are the articles about what apple copies from android oems? It's not there because unbeaten lives so deep in apples arse, they cannot see anything but apples...Its amazing that a "neutral" website can have this kind of bias.....(I know, I know, click bait)

Apple did not copy the essential phone. Both look completely different. People should stop saying. However the story is different when you place IPhone X side by side with Mi 8. The copying is so evident. I'm an android user but I'm ashamed of these copycat manufacturers. I applaud Samsung Sony and HTC for not copying the "trendy" in notch. If im gonna buy a phone with a notch, it will be the IPhone Xs plus. Enjoying my S9 plus at the moment.

Missing the biggest point. Apple copied the essential phone.

Apple did not "invent" the notch. Hauwei was experimenting with notches around 4 years ago but didn't have the balls to release. Both Samsung and LG were granted patents for a notch in 2016. Essential and Sharp both had phones on the market before Apple. Just wait while next year when Apple "invents" the triple camera phone.

the notch is there for the purpose, face unlock when will Android OEMS learn, Samsung too has face unlock but they didn't came up with the notch, also they didn't have the advance sensor per say, they still have face unlock but not a notch, hope notch decreases with every release of new iphones

The Mi8 is a disgusting copycat. OnePlus 6 is the best looking phone with notch

You mean the Oneplus 6 is less disgusting. Both are copycats.

IMHO MI8 Explorere edition is a wonderful phone with better specs than iphone in some areas! the only thing to worry is the battery capacity and quality! it's a bit modest for 6.21" screen and SD845! other than that i don't care for 3.5 jack< wireless charging and stuff like that!
