    Thats why I'll choose Sony Xperia, high quality phone that copies no one, it doesn't even copy the over processed camera phones. Look at 99% of android phones, they all look the same and work the same, majority have holes in their display, this is what reviewers want consumers to use because they work for either Samsung or apple...companies just making clones lol

    the cameras are freaking trash, not worth 750$ this ZTE trash is only worth around 500$ at most 😒 at least it looks good but that only cause they bit the crap outta samsung 🤦🏽‍♂️ 🤔 but i wonder if a Gcam port can help the camera quality on it tho

    The thing that gives me anxiety is my parents have iPhone 12 Pro Max’s, and they don’t have a password nor Face ID on it, the reason why is if one of them are sick or something, they can just quickly open the phone without doing the password or anything. While my phone, iPhone XS Max has a password with Face ID

    Samsung has followed all the wrong elements of iphones and are worse for them. no replaceable battery thus made obsolete soon after 2 years, no headphone jack, extortionate pricing. The ZTE isn't worth it either though for its shortcomings. no wireless charging??? i have had a note since the note 2 until i went for the s20 ultra and am disappointed. The camera has slowly got better but all those moments have passed now and the picture quality was crappy then, not now. tired of being ripped off.

    Not a hot take at all, competition is good for the industry for this very reason! We want companies to copy each other so in the end we get to pick the best option (or at least our personal favorite option). “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” -Steve Jobs

    Lmao you got everything wrong in this review smh. The display on this one is really shitty considering the price range while you say that it's really good. The camera, on the other hand, are A grade and probably better than those on the note 20 ultra while your dumbass says otherwise. The sad part is that many people would consider buying or not buying this phone after watching this bullshit of a review you've put out.

    I don't think that those innovations and "homework" should be copy and everyone being like" just fine". To me, that's disrespectful to the original phone designer. (2 thoughts down below) 1. because those attempts and designs from smartphone companies really cost them, but the one who steals didn't give any credit to the innovators but compete with them, making the smartphone field fewer innovators like LG and HTC (I mean, in the early times...) but only copycats. 2. I don't like smartphones to be like clones...I think there is no "right way" or "correct way" to make a phone, each phone has its distinguishing feature and design (ideally) , and somehow shows your taste and style. You know, someone just like higher screen-to-body ratio and they can tolerate the hole-punch screen, but I rather have a lower screen-to-body ratio but plz plz plz give me a no hole-punch screen. It just a matter of taste, not something every company should copy. --------- I love my smartphone because of its uniqueness, characteristics, and the company's respect and work for the product, not the specs. And I admire the innovations and attempts from smartphone companies, every new innovation on their phones were big risks and they should be respected.

    Tech products tend to be patented, from their physical designs to virtual software features. We went through a multi-year court battle with this previously. But of course, any Chinese company based on China can get away with this because no one dares entering a court battle in China because the courts are corrupt to take the Chinese side. Hence why you see more 'clones' today for the high-end devices than ever before. I don't agree with Marquees' opinion of 'copying' as a Designer, but frankly there is nothing we can do as long as the Chinese government favours its own over foreigners.
