I have noticed the same lack of consistency from the ANC. it somehow deactivates left or right earbud , or both and I have to turn it off-on again.

Johnny Holmes, 11 Nov 2019Because you're in a very small minority of people.I understand that but they should say "nobody". That's very narrow vision and not expected from GSMA.

In case you still can't see the similarity -
1. Look at the design for lifting up the screen
2. Look at the screen panel itself and how it unfolds when opening it.

Sure Matebook does kind of look like a mix between XPS and Macbook, but Xiaomi's notebook looks like a generic metal laptop that look more similar to Surface Book/Surface Laptop than Macbook. I own MBP and use it as my work computer, but I never considered Xiaomi's notebook as a Macbook ripoff simply due to how different they look.

Innovation - Definition
a new method, idea, product, etc.
Is putting a bigger battery in a phone a new method, idea or product?
It's an incremental upgrade that pressured other OEMs to be competitive and we are thankful for that.

Deep Fusion is also an incremental upgrade over current HDR which is spearheaded by a powerful processor unique to iPhones.
Apple arguably has the best HDR in any smartphone currently followed by Pixel. Both are close.
So tell me, Is deep fusion only a gimmick? Sure, it's nothing new.
Anti-Chinese propaganda, you say? I won't refute that. I don't like their predatory culture.

Anonymous, 11 Nov 2019This is not called copying, this is called following. Thanks bro, at least you get what I was saying.

Nick Tagataka, 11 Nov 2019What about camera shape then?Hey Nick, there is a difference between copying camera design versus the whole product. Anyone can see what Huawei was trying to do with this product. Look at their notebooks. Even though Apple was heavily inspired by Huawei's camera design, both designs are not identical.
Huawei & Xiaomi just shamelessly ripoff whatever anything that's popular in the market.

[deleted post]I'm amazed that you consider putting a bigger battery is innovative. Did Huawei patent it?
Oh, wait! They can't cuz it's nothing new. Sure, the whole market started putting a bigger battery due to Huawei. We should be thankful for that, competition is necessary.
But you can't say others copied it.

Stop putting a stamp on others, it is childish. I have never owned an Apple product and not even planning to. I don't buy overpriced products.

Seems ok but why not buy a super cheap i9S-TWS over this and the Airpods? :S

I've been using the airpods for more than 2 years now, connected to my previously OnePlus 3t phone and now on Huawei Mate 20 pro.
not an Apple fan, but this is the only apple product that i liked and is worth the money.

Did OP just assume nobody uses Airpods with Android, because I use them with my Galaxy S9 daily and they work flawlessly!

Free but not free until it's free

Shui8, 10 Nov 2019I just got myself Redmi Airdots for my Mate 20 for just $17. - ... moreGood Decision. This is a better choice even though its low priced.
