Nice price for what you get. Infrared is cool. Posted via the Android Central App
I thought $300 was the rumored price.... Other phones have 2k screens in this price range.

It still looks like a fantastic phone for $400.
People say the S7 is an iPhone clone.
Other people say the iPhone ripped off HTC. Design is a ongoing food chain where everyone builds on everyone else's ideas. This whole X copied Y thing is getting pretty tedious. Posted via the Android Central App
Yeah, I agree. You've got this slab, it has to be a certain form factor because the human hand and face tend to be a fairly consistent shape... And there's basically three materials that can be used in in its manufacture, glass, aluminium and plastic. Is it any wonder designs start to look similar? It's odd that no one seems to look at a Kenwood blender and say "pfft, Moulinex clone". Posted via the Android Central App
Manufacturing processes surely come into it too. If one OEM comes out with a new way of manufacturing a phone that is cheaper, or more efficient, then other companies, be they OEMs or places like foxcon, are going to see that and say "Hey, that's an improvement on what what we're doing", and what are they going to do? *Not* try to improve their manufacturing process? I suspect that reason as much as anything else is why a lot of phones ended up looking a kind of like the HTC M7/8 etc. And why a lot of phones that are water resistant go down the glass sandwich approach. Not because they want to rip off another phone, but because it's just the best way to construct them at that point in time. Posted via the Android Central App

5.2 inch "a compact phone"? You've got to be kidding.
Yeah, not very compact but I like it.
In today's world, 5.2 IS considered compact! It's true! How the times are changin'...
Kirin 950 looks pretty sweet
