htc one a9 and iphone 6

In recent comments made by HTC North Asia President Jack Tong, it’s become evident HTC do not like the iPhone comparisons. 

Jack Tong has said: “We’re not copying. We made a uni-body metal-clad phone in 2013. It’s Apple that copies us in terms of the antenna design on the back,”

Which is true with the HTC M7 which did have a metal unibody, the smartphone Tong was referring to.

“The A9 is made thinner and more lightweight than our previous metal-clad phones. This is a change and evolution, and we’re not copying,” he said.

Tong’s comments came after a scathing review from The Verge who stated the HTC One A9 as “the most blatant and highest-profile iPhone ripoff since Samsung’s original Galaxy S.”

The Taiwanese phone maker decided to copy the most popular smartphone out there, and it prioritized the United States with its most appealing pricing and perks,” the report said.
