Motorola phone 'brazen copy' of iPhone X

Well, they are owned by Lenovo.

 

I was hoping that the iPhone X would be an opportunity for the Android phone market to differentiate a little. The notch is ugly and particularly difficult to rationalize without Face ID. At this point it's pretty much just Samsung that haven't blindly followed Apple into a design that feels so easy to best. Especially since these copycat phones don't have Face ID, they don't need to put a ton of sensors at the top of the phone. Make that top part crazy thin or do something else interesting and you could probably make a better looking phone.

 

I think my next phone will be the Pixel 3, and for the first time in awhile I won't be getting the XL. Without the stupid notch (which is enormous on the Pixel 3 XL), it's just a much nicer looking device.

Yup even LG jumped on the notch bandwagon when they had a superior phone without one (I just picked up the V35 ThinQ and love it).

A little off topic but my wife's iPhone 6 just died. I wasn't ready to give up my old Galaxy S5 but as we were shopping around we ended up with a buy a Pixel 2 XL get one free deal. I like it but I just don't find these newer phones exciting anymore. Having a better camera is about the only benefit for my daily use.
