Huawei beat Apple to the smooth-rear-case-punch, offering a slim phone, without the infamous camera bump.
Antenna bands, chamfered edges, brushed aluminum and—Pentalobes? The P9 seems to have taken the iPhone design as law, down to the nasty proprietary five-lobed screws.
This marks the first time we've seen such a tiny pentalobe screw outside the Apple ecosystem; we can only hope this is an outlier, not a trend.
Seriously, there's no good reason to use pentalobe screws. They are shallow and have round lobes, making them excessively easy to strip. The only reason to use them is to prevent the average user from getting them out.
