Former Android VP Hugo Barra described the iPhone 6 as ‘the most beautiful smartphone ever built’ at WSJD Live today, reports the Verge.
Barra’s comments came in response to a question about the persistent criticism that 4-year-old Xiaomi’s rise has been fueled by blatant copying of designs from Apple and others, an issue that Jony Ive raised again at an event earlier this month. “Our designers, our engineers are inspired by great products — and frankly, in today’s world, who isn’t? Point me to a product in our industry that has completely unique design language. You’re not going to be able to find one.”
Barra also noted that Apple borrows liberally from others saying that the iPhone 6 “carries design that’s very HTC-like. Of course, with an astonishing twist … but it is somewhat familiar design language.” Another example he used was of iOS’ Control Center. “Quick settings on iOS is much better on Android, but it was on Android (long before),” Barra said.
Finally, when commenting on Xiaomi, a company he is now a VP at, he said that their products often resemble existing ones because the company is young and its designers lack confidence.
“It’s a fight, but I think we’re learning and we’re progressing,” he said. “when you look at the stuff that’s coming next from us, you’re going to see some unique new twists.”

When you hear ‘sustainable tourism’, let’s be honest, you wouldn’t picture yourself in a luxurious villa like the one above. However, we explored the finer side of the latest travel buzz-word in one of Thailand’s best hotels. Welcome to this month’s Hot Hotel, Soneva Kiri. The latest of the Soneva hotels to open, and still an established 4 years old, this Thai paradise is another example of Sonu and Eva Shivdasani’s vision for an environmentally and socially responsible hotel. We were delighted to be able to review the property for thedesignair.net.
