This $150 iPhone X knockoff totally misses the point


Shameless iPhone ripoffs have been a consistent source of amusement for us tech heads over the years, but Leagoo’s S9 takes the cake. This $150 device aims to take its cue from the iPhone X, despite its name being completely lifted from Samsung’s newly-announced flagship.

And that’s not even the most ridiculous thing of all. Not only is the use of a notch obnoxious for the fact that it doesn’t have the same advanced optics the iPhone X jams in there, it doesn’t even help Leagoo eliminate the bottom bezel from the device. Here’s what the iPhone X was able to do thanks to its notch:

So really, they took a big bite out of the top of its display for no damned good reason at all. But it’s only $150 and someone’s going to be naive to buy it, so hey, more power to them!
