Apple copied a UI from xerox when Steve Jobs visited their site in Palo Alto.
IPhone's design is a rip off from LG Prada.
Apple blatantly copied the android notification bar.
Apple copied iCloud from Motorola.
The burst mode on camera phones had been existent even in older phone models.

Wireless charging had been existent for quite a while especially with the old Palm phone.

Water resistance was developed by a company that uses nano technology and will be the norm among latest devices just like how your phone's camera, hardware and software are being upgraded.

Here's more articles of what apple had copied:

Oh cool, So a phone that was just released is more popular than one released almost a year ago, great analyzing right there........ Wait till the Iphone 5s comes out before you android fanboys start doing a victory lap. I would like to see iphone 5 versus S3 stats..... cause yeah those are 2 DIRECT competitors as they releases around the SAME time not a YEAR apart.

iPhone is boring, limited and everyone has one... as strange as it may seem, there is no exclusivity in owning an iPhone anymore.
S4 seems a good phone but it looks cheap and plastic (yes, I know I will get trashed by saying this but it simply does).
S3 had OK looks but S4 is very cheaply looking. They should do a better built version of the S4, take inspiration on the lumia, HTC One or Xperia Z and I might buy one.

It has to be noted by GSMArena that these stats don't count how many were sold through Apple premium stores and Apple Online stores.

Most of the sales come from these 2 things.

The sales reported here are only sales made in the stores of Carriers.

Just goes to show the Samsung Ad showing iPhone users as sheep was actually a prophecy about Samsung themselves.

Even their current S4 advert shows that everyone must have the same phone 'Group Play'
