Not if they're running Android.
Watching him defend Android...so transparent.
"You have to have curved corners. You have to have, you know, like a home button in some way, that's how interaction design works."
Smooth edges are required for comfort obviously, but why rounded? The Lumia 735 has square corners, so it's clearly a design choice.
That same Lumia 735 does not have a home button, though it does have a Windows button. Samsung have a Home button on the Galaxy S4, but its icon looks like that of a stylised house. The Samsung A series has a home button which looks nothing like Apple's. Xiami's home button however, purely by chance I'm sure, mimics the iPhone home button's rounded square icon.
Finally, Xiami's web site looks more like Apple's in terms of appearance than any other web site I've seen which is selling a mobile device. I'm sure that, strangely, if Apple's were to redesign their website today, that in a month or so, Xiami's web site would be updated to look like Apple's new design, because "that's how interaction design works".
Mr Barra, you are a smoke cloud of trickery.
