When Apple sue samsung, fanboys cry foul. When LG sue samsung, you guys deny or say its nothing.

But the truth is samsung copy everyone and avoid paying a single cent.. and @ the same time deliver low quality plastic phone. Major evilness.

Hipster Apple. Suing Samsung before it was cool.

on a side note. come on. really? look it up, what is innovate and what is the difference with invention.
technology makes great progress because of innovation. imagine all the previous inventors keeping their work for themselves.
you babies keep saying copy this copy that. truth is that is what makes technology advanced thus far.
so please if you don't know what you're saying. please, shut it.

I'd choose a Samsung device over an LG device any day. All this patent violation business... It's just annoying.

When someone becomes popular then everyone gets jealous of it. This is also a method to promote their company via court in free of cost.

This issue about copying is never ending in my opinion since they all really copy each other's technologies from the designs of the phones to the internals. LG copied Sammy's Note 2 designs but the simultaneous video recording was copied by Sammy from LG I believe coz it was first seen with LG. If they sue each other then yeah! Haha! It's royal rumble! I believe that Sony is the one that isn't fond of copying. HTC also copies and the One's design is very Z10 and iPhone combined then Windows' UI was applied on Blinkfeed! :)

Samsung copied Apple to climb to the top.

Samsung fans copied Google Search to protect their plastic phones and rent about other phone makers.

Everything about samsung is copy.
