It's uncanny, you can barely tell it apart from an iPhone.


It looks more like it comes from the old days, when Nokia was still relevant enough for Samsung to copy them.

It's obvious that Samsung is in the clear. As an Apple fan I'm hugely disappointed by the course of unnecessary legal actions. It's making me despise my iPod touch.

And guess what...They still do it. Look again. They still make all different shapes, colors, sizes, styles, and levels of phones. They have a huge share of just about every phone market.

It's like watching a soap opera here... Anyway, let's not get brainwashed or swayed into infinite silly details and forget about the fundamental question/argument here...

Well known understanding is that the majority Android/Samsung smartphone/tablet buyers buy their products because they have or offer very specific features and specs that they are looking for, which is not available or sufficient in Apple's versions. It's not because they look and feel like Apple products. Rather than wasting our valuable time and energy speculating and arguing over theories, rumors, heresay, and presumptions, why don't we just use our brain and common sense that we have learned over the ages. Pretty sure this exercise would be way more practical, objective, fair, and economical to everyone involved than a long trial."Survey" a large sample of Samsung Android phone/tablet users and buyers and ask them why or how they wound up buying what they bought instead of iPhone or iPad. If substantial number of those surveyed (let's say more than 20% for the argument's sake) claim they were looking to buy an iPhone or iPad but got fooled or deceived by the same "exact" look and feel of the Samsung products and wound up buying and keeping a Samsung phone or tablet, then Apple should prevail. We all know the answer already but can't think of more precise, objective, and fairer approach to settling the dispute which hurts the consumers the most at the end. For those who claim they were "deceived", as to why they didn't read the product label or return the allegedly "deceptive" Samsung product and got iPhone/iPad within the 30 day return period is a whole new set of questions we need to find out...

No matter what company it is, it just doesn't feel "right" (to say the least) as a paying consumer to be treated like we have no intelligence at all.

Samsung will never win against Apple for one very good reason. Apple is american company and samsung isnt therefore American company simply can not be wrong or Americans in general, its quiet clear that they actualy both copied Sony's design only problem is Apple claims they ahve invented everything yet we had phones before Apple even thought developing one in their wildest dreams. Really sick of Apple going arround like cowboys suing everything that moves, I said cowboys because like on wild west they think they sued first hence they have right to be right. I will never buy Apple product again, I switched from Iphone 3gs to SII and now I have got Galaxy Note and SIII cant be happier...

I see a design that is almost stolen from Sony Ericsson - see by yourself Sony Ericsson should raise a law suite on Apple if it released such a design.

Slide out qwerty, number pad, regular qwerty, no physical buttons, touch only, etc. look at their phones before 2007. It was a mess. IPhone comes out and they suddenly decide on a certain design.
