    Yes they are both made out of aluminum but THEY LOOK NOTHING ALIKE! THEY DON'T FEEL ALIKE! THEY ARE BARELY EVEN SIMILAR! The only thing that is similar is the aluminum.

    Why are we yelling? And who are we yelling at?

    I'm a proud One owner, and yet, I'll admit this much: minus subtle styling choices, all smart-phones look roughly the same; roughly rectangular, a screen on the front. Some buttons somewhere, or maybe not, and this goes back to well before the iPhone, too. Here's another secret: manufacturers (of any device, not just phones but any consumer electronic, cars, etc) see something they like in one design, "borrow" from it, improve on it. So what if our Ones do or don't look like iPhones--you own the phone, you know you like it, and really, that's all that matters.

    For real? I love the One's design, but the first thing I noticed was the chamfered and polished aluminum edges. I'm not suggesting that HTC copied Apple, since that would have been difficult. But they do certainly bear some similarities.

    Come on. Open your eyes people. The One is an exact copy of the iphone 5!!!

    Iphone has a flat back and the One's curved. The iphones speakers are on the bottom and the One's on the front facing you. Iphone's power button is on the side and the One's on the top. Iphone has nothing but a button on the bottom bezel and the One has a home, back, and a huge HTC logo on the bottom bezel. Heaphone jack is at opposite ends of the phone.

    See the similarities keep stacking up regardless whether they are aluminum or not. Honestly, I'm surprised Apple hasn't sued yet!

    Oh don't worry they will sue HTC for using iOS on their Developer Edition One.

    If you ask me, there is similarities in all smartphones, their all elongated, some have aluminium, others are made of plastic, some have different curves and tweaks, some have a physical home button while others don't have and i could go on for a while. That is just what i think, the question is just what you prefer to use and what fall in your taste.

    I don't see any similarities at all to be honest. I've also never heard anyone make this claim.

    There are definite similarities between the two. See AC's article here (in particular look at the pix): HTC One versus the iPhone 5 | Android Central
    OK so they're both aluminum, but aside from that? I mean, you have to realize that there are many design elements that are common among the majority of mainstream phones out there today. Once you set those aside then you have what really matters, home button placement, number of buttons, screen activation button placement, speaker placement, screen size, screen aspect ratio, etc. When you look at those things, the ones that really matter, there's no comparison.

    Close is close enough for most people. Then don't get me started on iPhone users constantly looking for validation for being an iPhone user. Try playing charades, describe without words the One then the iPhone, chances are you will use many of the same gestures, and if there are enough players there will likely be someone who guesses the Z10.

    I think the similarities have much more to do with the watered down functionality of the OS's and over-simplification of the interface. Both OS's(in current form) make accessing settings difficult, predetermine what the app drawer looks like and make things nice and easy. Obviously, there is a lot to be said for this given sales of the iPhone. Sense 5 is very similar to iOS 6 in these regards but physically not so much.
