There was much criticism of Apple about the design of the iPhone X when it came out, the loudest complaining about the notch, the notch at the top of the screen. The critics now have to go crazy, because a large part of the smartphone makers who make Android phones have just copied that design .
There are a lot of different ways you can use the notch. Ultimately, it depends very much on what kind of hardware you have to place in that piece of non-screen to determine how big it needs to be. The differences are usually not very large, but they are there. Until Motorola showed the P30.
Yes but there is Motorola on
If you take a look at the photos above she will forgive you if you think you are watching an iPhone X. And I do not mean a ‘yes all smartphones look alike nowadays who keeps them apart haha’ look, but a real one, looking at the details. Then you will see that the two phones can hardly be separated. Motorola knows that too, because they have not put anything small on the bottom ‘Motorola’ for nothing. Also on the back you can see that it is a Motorola because there is an ‘M’ where normally the Apple logo is, although that also serves as a fingerprint scanner. If you also want a copy of the Huawei P20, that color (‘Aurora’) is also available.
Furthermore, it is an uninteresting device and it is only intended for the Chinese market, so you will not find it here. But it is bizarre how a manufacturer can simply pick a design one-on-one and apparently get away with it. The fact that telephones will all look alike because of the functionality and progress, that’s fine. But if you can only separate two aircraft after serious inspection, there should be a law against it. You would say.
Of course there are also, as the big lawsuit between Apple and Samsung has shown, but it remains a difficult thing to prove that your design is yours and not a consequence of years to small changes that have combined the current design. Yet. There are limits, and the Moto P30 is looking for them very much. If that does not result in a lawsuit, we do not know anymore.
