People are roasting Motorola’s new phone for looking like an exact copy of the iPhone X

iphoneX vs P30

  • Promotional images make it look nearly identical to Apple’s marketing for the iPhone X — all the way down to the wallpapers. 

If you’re in the market for a new Android phone, you can do worse than the Motorola P30, a roughly $350 device with some quality parts, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip and 128GB of storage.

People might also mistake it for a device that costs three times as much: the $1,000 Apple iPhone X, which was launched last fall. 

Photos of the new China-bound device were made official on Thursday, and not only do the phones share a lot of design details — a vertical camera, a “notch” on the front of the screen — the promotional images look nearly identical. Even the default wallpapers on the two devices are very similar. 

There is one way to tell them apart, though: Motorola has a big logo on the front of the device. 

Naturally, tech fans and enthusiasts immediately started roasting the Levovo-owned phonemaker for ripping off Apple’s design:
