Nallaikumaran, 27 Feb 2016Problem is that Apple has not really "years of research and development", more like they copie... moreusually other create something new , but dosnt matter it works or not , just wait apple to copy and improve the technology , then they can copy back how apple did and claim they already did it first.
Look how long it took apple to copy something that other already did , while other just used on their next device to copy it back. Just said like touch id, how long it takes apple to follow what motorola did 3 4 years ago... then look , even china phone also have that finger print. While motorola did that , did other bother to follow ??
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2016Are you kidding? Why comparing Qualcomm with Samsung? Samsung is manufacturing (mobile phones,... moreWell...the new 820 is manufactured by Samsung so is the A9 and very soon amd graphics cards and processors. So whoever says exynos processors are crap don't know what they are saying...considering they top benchmarks year in year out. And the reason other manufacturers aren't using them is because Samsung doesn't have the capacity to make enough chips for its phones and other manufacturers. But they will eventually.

Steve Jobs "liberated" hardware from Atari, had The Waz do all the work getting it to run.
Then Apple kicked his ass out, tried to innovate, fail, then had jobs come back to build on the "Reality Distortion Field."
Grey1213, 27 Feb 2016Not really. Apple helped spearhead the smartphone market but that was it. I'm not really seein... moreYou have a good point but for me with smartphones, the one who created it first would say that's their own patent and the one's who copied is a copy cat. Same with Sony's water resistant phone which they called SONY Xperia Active, after a few months later Samsung release a galaxy phone which they called Active? Sweet , Right?
Since the Apple can't beat Samsung through the customers satisfaction, (shows the market share in 2015 17% against 20%) they tries to increase their profit through faulty legal prosecution. and now it has come against them proving the Newtons 3rd Law "Every Action has a reaction"
Problem is that Apple has not really "years of research and development", more like they copied everything; from their 'Apple' name, their 'Apple fruit' logo, the name 'iPhone', the name 'iOS', etc. Apple has been stealing other companies ideas for years Steve Jobs was the best at using other people's ideas. Apple is always copied from every brand.
Steve Jobs said: "Picasso had a saying -- 'good artists copy; great artists steal' -- and we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas."
Confirmed, Apple is a shameless copy company
Mirage.PH, 27 Feb 2016Sorry for Samsung fans but I agree with Apple.. Samsung is a copy cat but I'm not saying that ... moreNot really. Apple helped spearhead the smartphone market but that was it. I'm not really seeing the copying.
Apple's smart watch uses amoled displays and has a strap, like most other smart watches, does that count as copying?
All cars have 4 wheels, is that copying?
There's no point in just labelling everything a 'copy' just because its similar. Also, in recent years the 'copying' has been the other way round, with Apple taking several hardware and software features from android OEMs, most of them from Samsung.
Harmonica, 27 Feb 2016apple can completely move to TSMC is they want ;-) 14nm samsung chips inferior to TSMCs 16n... moreeven if they do, still from the original iphone to till date, they're using samsung manufactured chips. so zip it.
thenerd, 27 Feb 2016Meizu uses Exynoslenovo too: http://www.gsmarena.com/lenovo_k860-4956.php
HAHhahahah. Classic Apple. Pointing their gulty fingers to shift blame backfired!
Even though Samsung has been caught up in price fixing, copying, bribery, extortion and even murder controversies, it always amazes me how the fanboys can ignore that and still blindly support Samsung.
Sorry for Samsung fans but I agree with Apple.. Samsung is a copy cat but I'm not saying that their product su**s . Samsung products are good but please stop copying.
whitedragon, 27 Feb 2016This is the problem with how this case has been pressed (btw you are off topic this was to do ... moredragon this how it always goes, its an indirect infliction of pain that always forces cooperation i have seen it happen in my country hence no other co works outside the parameters set by gov and survives. they should get thier it huys to write the heck and decrypt the said phone and resume business which is suing samsung and milking them of the profits they made form thier innovation and research. to those who dont know samsung is one of those entities that spend big on R&D ;)
Max..Payne, 27 Feb 2016still they rely on samsung! design your own chip and manufacture it yourself like samsung.. lo... moreapple can completely move to TSMC is they want ;-)
14nm samsung chips inferior to TSMCs 16nm chips .. enough said
Max..Payne, 27 Feb 2016lol at you complaining about fingerprint which apple copied from moto atrix.lol.. not complaining
apple made it mainstream .. meanwhile samsung took years to even to copy properly
if sont brings a fire proof phone , samsung will also say they ll do
