Affordable Android Phones With iPhone-Like Designs

Android Phones with iPhone-like Designs

Apple has been dominating the smartphone market with its phone lineup for years. Apple also stands out in terms of its mobile chipsets, as we highlighted in our 2023 mobile chipset review. Now, while Android phones are still catching up in terms of performance, the manufacturers have made efforts to make their phones look like iPhones.

But why would anyone want to buy Android phones with iPhone-like designs? Well, iPhones are not cheap. Even the low-end modern iPhone, the standard iPhone 14, is $799. In comparison, there are many Android phones with iPhone-inspired designs that come under $400. With these phones, you can have something that mimics the design aspects of iPhones for a much lower cost.

However, not all iPhone-like Android phones are worth considering. Some, on the other hand, are a great pick if you want to have a phone that resembles Apple iPhones to some degree. You will find info about them below. And do note that they are not 100% iPhone clones. They imitate the design aspects of iPhones to varying degrees.

That would be the camera arrangement on the rear. If you take a closer look, it’s pretty similar to the triangular camera module of the iPhone 14 Pro. Moreover, the Redmi 12 comes with flat sides too. This contributes to the Android phone’s resemblance to the iPhone 14 Pro.

However, it’s important to note that the phone doesn’t have the same internal specifications as the iPhone 14 Pro. Instead, it has good mid-range specs. And the great part is that the Android phone starts at $168.

  • Screen: 6.79-inch IPS LCD with 90Hz refresh rate
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Storage: 128 GB or 256 GB

Not convinced with the designs of the Android phones above? Want something that looks exactly like an iPhone? You need to check out the LeEco S1 Pro.

From pretty much all the angles, the phone looks like an iPhone 14 Pro Max. The phone even fully copies the front design of the iPhone. It comes with a pill-shaped cutout that houses a single camera. And there’s a Dynamic Island feature too. That makes the Android phone look 1:1 as the current high-end iPhone.

But LeEco was so busy copying the design of the iPhone 14 Pro Max that it forgot to include some basic features. For example, the triple camera setup on the back only has one functional sensor; the others are there as mockups. Also, the specs are very low-end. However, the phone is cheap. It costs just $134.

LeEco S1 Pro Main Specs

  • Processor: UniSoc T7510
  • Screen: 6.5-inch IPS LCD with 60Hz refresh rate
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Storage: 128 GB
