Even in the phones the americans use the power to win. Actually i have iphone4, and both galaxy s2 and s3,
It is very clear to any body who uses both that samsung phones are much much better than apple phone
Also they contain much more options.
Iam sure if any other company (non american) raised the case against samsung it will fail.
I really wish people would begin to fully understand what has happened here. Everyone is crying that because of this its going to stifle innovation for other smartphone makers. Why? If they were copying Apple in the first place how is that "innovation"???? If this does nothing more than gets Samsung's design team to THINK a bit more instead of copying then it was worth it. How will that stifle innovation? If anything it will help innovation GROW! When you are forced to avoid certain technologies or "look and feel" etc... this causes you to have to think outside of the conventional box that has become so commonplace among smartphone interfaces. Kudos to Apple for pushing this. And kudos to the other manufacturers like Sony, Nokia, HTC, and Motorola, etc... who still innovate with their own cool and unique designs. And SHAME on Samsung for focusing for so long on making their phones and tablets nearly (if not completely) indistinguishable from the iPhone and iPad. But its Samsung... they feel they are superior. They'll never learn.
Samsung will for sure bounce back after this set back.For instance if we look at the latest Samsung Galaxy S3 design, it shows quite a change in smartphone revolution.And Samsung will continue with its own innovation in terms of design & new features.
Fine.... So we make a point and have apple pay XEROX the tens of Billions for stealing their (XEROX) IP which Mr jobs admitted doing. Goto youtube "steven jobs I hired the wrong guy."
Some people around here don't have a clue about what they're saying. Because of this trial, now Apple has the precedent to obtain injunctions against a lot of phones on the market. And not only from Samsung, but any other Android phone manufacturer. Apple wants to rule the market by killing the competition. I hope the companies can find a way to get past the patents. But when Apple registers a patent for a shape, that is pretty hard.
Eye Opener, 26 Aug 2012Apple dont call yourself a smartphone manufacturer. You'r only a software developer. Your mo... moreit only proves that despite of samsung being 'innovative' it still FAILED to design their own smartphones. And this is proven in the court. lousy.
I phone sucks and they are behaving like kids.... They are unable to digest that people love Samsung more than crappy I phone
this is what happens when you try too much to become as iconic as the iCon.
LG is a korean company. APPLE copied LG Prada's 'square with rounded corners' design. LG let Apple get away with it. Apple sued Samsung, a korean company, for copying what they already copied from LG.
LG wakeup! Avenge your brother!
when you produce honey flies will come to eat that up....so Samsung in the biggest revolution in mobile tech, which is undigestable for its peers......
glennthera, 26 Aug 2012I think u hav a very good point there! Apple expects Samsung 2 bite the bullet as it were, but... morePerhaps they could bounce back stronger IF they hire a different legal team next time. The continual stupidity of the legal firm appointed to this case was astounding. Their behaviour was bordering on naive.

"Samsung Executives made it absolutely clear that the infringements were purposeful."
"Well, there were several. The e-mails that went back and forth from Samsung execs about the Apple features that they should incorporate into their devices was pretty damning to me. And also, on the last day, they showed the pictures of the phones that Samsung made before the iPhone came out and ones that they made after the iPhone came out. Some of the Samsung executives they presented on video [testimony] from Korea -- I thought they were dodging the questions. They didn't answer one of them. They didn't help their cause."
Simple and easy: It was pre-decided to protect a homeland corporation; that's why ANROID developer was not even touched = )
Someone, 26 Aug 2012This isn't a case of just asking "Did Samsung copy Apple? Yes/No?"

PLUS: No thats not copying: "if one company assembles a fridge and add and LED within, while another company assembles another FRIDGE and add an LED in a different way, its not copying !! Because its a *Feature* and if you cant develop a better feature doesn't mean that your rival has copied you if he develops it in a better way !! = )

Evidence was presented by both sides, the trial lasted over two weeks. The judge warned Samsung lawyers about their conduct during the trial several times.
One piece of evidence was the emails backwards and forwards between Samsung Engineers saying that they should "do this like the iPhone". The iPhone was their complete reference when designing the Galaxy.
I mean c'mon, the icon for Photos on an iPhone is a flower with yellow petals. Samsung's icon for Photos on the Galaxy is...a flower with yellow petals. If that isn't copying, what is?
In the end Samsung lawyers couldn't convince the jury.
The most interesting thing from this report by GsmArena.com for all Pakistani brothers & sisters who wish to buy Samsung is, that we should hold on our pockets till 20th September, 2012. If the court truly ban or discard the current design of Samsung Smart phones. Then for Samsung India and Pakistan would be the best market to sell such phones on cheap rates to recover their actual cost to reduce their actual loss. That would be the time to invest and get more you ever wished .... :)
SOMEONE: that's CUTE ... You presented the photo of the copurt room like you were there in personal lolx ... Im a lawyer and I have examined this case since it started, DON'T lie to people that "Lawyers did this and CEO's did that" lolx
You cant change the fact that Once again AMERICANS-PROTECTED-AMERICAN BRANDS lolx .... Why ANDROID Developer was not even touched ?! JUST think about it !!
