Force touch. Technology available since 1995 and used in 2 Sega consoles.
But of course to the Apple Fanbois it's an Apple "innovation" and everyone else is copying. . . .
freddgsm, 02 Sep 2015is force touch controller used by android phones for their "knock on" capability?Knock wakeup function is made by LG. Somewhat similar in idea but it use sound detection not screen pressure.
tell us something we don't know. this is news, well old news. anyway
jasonc, 02 Sep 2015Agree. But it's always expensive when come to apple product compare to other brand phone.Mercedes also charges more for someone that is much cheaper and achieve the same in a Mazda.
jasonc, 02 Sep 2015Agree. But it's always expensive when come to apple product compare to other brand phone.People either see the value in it or they don't, such is the world. One pays for more than just ForceTouch...

ME, 01 Sep 2015Force Touch exists in Android from 2.3 (4 years ago)not it didn't.

No, you do not need to click so hard. Even a soft tap is registered and give you that clicking feeling.
Just to clarify.. this is not like haptic feedback vibrate BS you feel. Its on another level.
How is this useful on a smartphone... or even is the haptic engine included.. we have to see. And yes i agree its gonna be gimmicky if not done right.
and just to add insult to injury . the article right underneath this shows that a chinese phone with force touch will be released prior to the iphone, they never get a break someone else always does everything first. poor apple sheep
PICASSO BABY, 01 Sep 2015So i guess samsung will be copying this force touch feature next year in their s7 no doubt. le... moreprobably not especially if it cracks a lot of cheap made screens. even though i fail to find anything really that samsung copied from apple which wasnt done on a different manufacturer first. maybe you can enlighten me. and this just seems to gimicky to be of any real use to a phone. seems that a simple software short touch long touch would do the same thing.
akanth, 01 Sep 2015Finally releasing.. Reviewers will find lot of negatives. People will compare with Samsungs,... moreSamsung/Android gadget sell new techs, Apple just only sell their trademark in the out-off dated techs...
I am impress with Macbook trackpad force touch click feedback.. really feel like a button click.
Coming to iPhone.. hmmmmm. It might change iPhone to gaming controllers!
is force touch controller used by android phones for their "knock on" capability?
Picasso baby, 02 Sep 2015But you miss my point Samsung won't do it until apple do it. While Apple and Samsung arguing who is going to do it first, Huawei MateS take the spotlight being the first to implement Force Touch. Lose to China brands. Poor US and Korea.
ME, 01 Sep 2015Force Touch exists in Android from 2.3 (4 years ago)Force touch requires specific hardware, which phone has deployed this before?
There's a difference between a short and long press vs a light and hard press.
In any case, Apples Force Touch will be the better implementation in any case. They always do it better haha
