Similarly like a Television, I give a damn about who invented it. Only thing that interest me now is how it has evolved into an LED or 3D display. Its more like a phenomenon, call it market growth or product evolution.
I hate to be judgmental but advent of iphone 5 marked a black spot on the clean sheet of apple's history. If this is what people call innovation, I would definitely save myself from the trouble of being sorry for wasting my hard earned cash.

That is too bad for Samsung users. They should buy HTC or Nokia next time.

And if you talking about software Apple in this field since late 70's Samsung it's hardware electronic factory not software. Yes I do I agree Samsung made the first color screen on phone but Apple introduced the new phone era and other copied to be honest.

PS. Actually Apple preparing for something new with the upcoming new iPhone 6!

So what if they copied Nokia. The overall product from samsung is stil better. YOu think iphone didn't copy features from the galaxy s3 also? Galaxy s3 trumps iphone anyday overall. Iphone is now on their way out. Apple had a good run but now it's time for a new leader in the smartphone biz.

IPhone expensive yes but Apple offer quality unlike Samsung. And for the samfan that mentioned that S3 has a lot of feature unlike iPhone let me explain you some feature that Samsung copied from Nokia! Yes Nokia
- Download apps wireless through PC through play store already out since 2008 on Nokia 5800 you can download apps through ovi store through PC I used to do it when I had 5800.
- make the phone silent by turning the phone already had it on my dated Nokia e66!

I'm not even a Nokia fan anymore but Samsung didn't invent something new and if you wonder how S3 faster than any Android phone don't forget that Samsung manufacture Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod chip set so they knows exactly what Apple product chip set architecture and use the same architecture with more powerful boost.

I have experienced this problem with my galaxy s3, just a week after activation the phone dying unexpectedly. I delivered my phone to the Samsung service center and I need to wait for the motherbaord to be replaced. Almost a month now, I have not got repaired yet. I am so disappointed with Samsung!! Is that quickly repaired?

Iphone is damn expensive,, Samsung has got no style,, Nokia uses win OS which very complicated wen compared to Android... That's why i always prefer SONY, it has got CLASS,LOOKS,SPEED nd CHEAPER wen compared to other phones in the market...
