Xiaomi has made a massive name for themselves in China by creating affordable knock-offs of Apple-like smartphones. They make some of their own designs too, but it's their faux iPhones that garner the most attention.
The company doesn't just "ape" Apple's designs though. They've been known to copy a few of Samsung's aesthetics as well. Apparently, they are making that their "thing" because they just chose another manufacturer to mimic too. Check out the Xiaomi Mi 4, which looks suspiciously like the Moto X. As you can see from the image above, it isn't an exact replica, but it definitely borrows the back case look from the Moto X. When flipped around, and from the sides, it looks like an iPhone 5S. What an odd combination...
I guess Motorola should be flattered to join the club. Obviously the Chinese companies play by a different set of rules than the rest of the world. What do you think of Xiaomi's tactics?
