A Nerd’s Confusion: What is this!

Hi there, I’m an iPhone! Wait, no you’re not an iPhone. Where is your Apple logo? You have this strange square box logo thingamajig. Imposter!

I had absolutely no idea about the OnePlus android phone brand until my friend introduced me to his a few years ago. They were kind of a nothing phone to me until I recently came across their latest attempt at trying to be the next big thing. And this time, that attempt is to blatantly copy the design of the iPhone 7. If you didn’t know already, I’m an Apple fanboy. I love their products and design. (Some company tactics, less so). In an article on BGR OnePlus is quoted saying:

the company never wants to be different for the sake of being different. Instead, it tries to make design choices that are familiar to users.

Despite it’s blatant copy of the iPhone (which I really think Apple should do something about, I mean seriously, what is this!?) the phone has what I would call a nicer looking version of Android than what I’ve been used to seeing. Whilst at the same time, they do continue to fall short of the amazing phone they’re copying. The two cameras they’ve added don’t even have a full 2x optical zoom like the iPhone.

what is this!?

With this year being the 10th anniversary of the iPhone (I may or may have not ordered a brand new iPhone 1st gen that is on it’s way to me) and  one thing that I’m most definitely looking forward to, following a flurry of rumours, is the iPhone 8. The iPhone 7 Plus of mine, is a powerhouse. It’s the best iPhone that Apple has made. So with a monumental celebratory year, it’s going to be exciting to see what Apple decides to release later in this year.
