jealousy is futile. they make great products and there is nothing wrong with that. don't put any companies on a pedestal. they are not gods,countries,or idols. they are groups of people who want to make a lot of money. haters and lovers are the extreme results of their marketing. they don't care about you

history ignored is doomed to repeat itself


apple tried to monopolise the PC market and got screwed over becaused the many (many) more cheaper PC options the customer had. eventually microsoft even invented a decent OS. and that killed apple off


apple tried to corner the phone and tablet market by monopolising the OS on their own brand. google just played a smart play- gave everyone the OS. apple losing market share was an eventuality.

apple are only going to hurt more because of how well google has made its latest tablet and phone.

a smart apple would partner with one of the android big phone companies and allow iOS on them- at least on a limitied basis. HTC would be my choice because the sense os works like a marvel.
also would give aple a better chance in the far east where samsung and others are kiling apple.

if it was me- i'd buy a percentage in HTC- conditionally give them the iOS (not allow them to make a higher resolution than the iphone 5-6- or a screen bigger than 4.5 inches)
HTC makes a cheaper phone and apple expands into other territories and maybe takes away some of samsungs momentum.

we've been "copying" gun powder, compass, ice cream, pizza, spaghetti, accupuncture etc..etc from the chinese, so no big deal for korean to copy a little from long as consumers get a good deal.

so all you apple fan boys are trying so say that Samsung copied everything and apple didn't lol... you can whine cry n talk all you want you must realise u won't get any far... apple will be history in a few years there is competition from all sides they don't or think in a broader prospective and do business even Google is entered the competition rough road ahead for apple on the other hand Samsung sees no compitition they are only here to serve ppl and make them happy..... there is no new innovation from apple side they are just pushing with the brand name features are most certainly outdated

So Samsung been called a copycat is not bcos they are the only one rather it's bcos there product are having more success now

haters go play your ataris and stop trolling here. or try playing world of tanks or something. all your "facts", right or wrong are pathetic. you are already winners when you chose your devices. get a hobby. live a life.

I agree samsung makes d best. But they are into bad habit of overpricing just like apple. Yall know that nokia lost because of this habit and now learned frm their mistakes and are coming up with good reasonable devices while samsungs moving away from this point. Example compare price of L620 n gs3mini with specs. So samsung dont think people will still buy your things even u turn stubborn like "aluminium phone makers". I still luv my s3 :-)
