This seems to be a controversial statement: Yaesu FT-4X is a rebadged Baofeng.
FT-4X *and* Baofeng: Made in China; flashlight; reverse-SMA-M; 3.5mm+2.5mm mic connector; NO SUPERHET, direct conversion design
Compare to older Yaesu models like the FT-60 or VX-7: Made in Japan; no flashlight; SMA; 3.5mm TRRS; 2x Superhet design
Occam's Razor applies.
