Oppo's latest handset doesn't deviate much in design and keeps to a very iPhone-ish look found on earlier phones.

If you find the design of the Oppo R9s Plus very similar to the iPhone, well, you're not the only one. The R9s Plus sticks to a very familiar look used in earlier models, such as the smaller Oppo R9s, that apes Apple's smartphone.

That said, while it does look like the iPhone, the R9s Plus comes powered by Android and has its own features to stick out, such as a large 6-inch full-HD display.

The metal rear of the phone also looks very much like the iPhone design, though there are some slight tweaks to make it look a little different.

The antenna lines are etched in, giving it a slightly different look.

The phone is just 7.4mm thick (about 0.29 inch) and impresses with its slimness.

Unlike more modern phones, the R9s Plus sticks to a micro-USB port instead of a Type-C USB connector.

The phone uses a non-physical home button like the iPhone 7S, which vibrates the phone when "pressed."

The front camera also features a 16-megapixel sensor for better selfies.
