Lenovo’s iPhone ripoff is so blatant it puts Samsung to shame
It’s easy to point a finger at Xiaomi, the Chinese phone maker that clearly draws a lot of… inspiration from Apple. And there’s Samsung, of course. But there’s another copycat offender out there that’s almost just as bad, if not worse: Lenovo.
The Chinese manufacturer has a new phone coming out called the Sisley S90. Excuse the fact that the device looks just like an iPhone 6; its website is basically a carbon clone of Apple’s.
Lets compare Apple’s web marketing with Lenovo’s (courtesy of Gizmodic):
Pretty bad, huh?
Lenovo admitted to The Independent that its phone shares “external similarities” with the iPhone. “Considering the product design lifecycle of any smartphone – at least a year in planning and prototyping – it’s not possible to copy a design so quickly.”
