Thank you Samsung...

If it wouldn't have been for Samsung putting out the S6, no one else would be able to make phones with this basic iPhone-esque styling. Before the S6, Apple sued companies for using these basic design style elements, the rounded corners and glass back and metal wrap frame with the drilled speaker and mic holes in the bottom.

Apple didn't want to get into another legal battle with the second largest gorilla of cellular, that they might lose and potentially be on the hook for millions (again). After the S6 dropped without a suit, there are now a lot of phones that use this styling, as they should. It feels great in the hand and the slightly heavier weight of the metal frame and glass Do feel a lot more like a quality engineered device.

OK, and what does this have to do with the Honor 8?

Only the smoothly rounded shape of the corners and glass back and solid metal frame with drilled out speaker holes... of the Honor 8.

Which is very much like the Iphones... And the Samsung Galaxy S6. And a ton of phones now.

Is this thing On?
