    Really disappointing to see Chinese/Korean manufacturers copying Apple. I used to really love Huawei but they just got rediculous with what they copied from Apple

    Xiaomi 8 explorer is not using infrared mapping your face ,it’s using 3D scanning like Face ID
    Infrared is used on xiaomi 8 standard edition

    So basically, Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer is a copycat that is cheaper but not nearly as good as the Iphone X?
    Well, it might be for some but I see no pride in copying one of the best around for a quick buck.

    Do not cry because Xiaomi did a better phone with a in-screen fingerprint reader for half of the price

    Saying iPhone wins just because of the "design" just unfair in general. It's just like judging a booo by it's cover, and that is stupid

    People, you can disable the notch in the setting.
    And talking about the design, does it really matter? If phones looks familiar so… what? You are buying a phone, if it functions normally then does design Really matter?

    Whats sad about this is that they have to copied the iPhone design language although their Mi Mix line won an award for its design without that hideous notch and stupid camera placement.

    I still think the 8 EE is a great phone (obviously nothing beats its price for that kind of specs) and thats coming from a 9 years heavy Apple user.

    And people need to shut up because its not the iPhone that makes the iPhone GREAT its the iOS itself & on another note, how sad that you owned an iPhone just to freaking show it off to people lol y’all can barely operate it.
