"Not the same as" and "not the same like" sound both strange to me (non-native speaker). Google finds both versions. Are both okay?
Is this phrasing used anyway or would people go for "different than/to"?

Google is not the best tool to determine what a native speaker would actually say.
As to "different than" vs. "different from" vs. "different to", see this question.
