Featuring an all-metal body, this Meizu phone isn't shy on aping Apple's flagship, though the camera position does differ.

At the bottom you'll find a very Apple-like message as well.

Even the antenna bandings look similar.

If you're still unsurprised by Meizu's copycat ways, you'll note that the Pro 5 has fewer holes for the speaker grilles.

The Meizu Pro 5 is actually pretty sleek, and the rounded edges are comfortable to hold.

The power and volume buttons are all on the same side, unlike the iPhone's.
