I wouldn't call it copying as it is more like competing. Just because Sony has their flagship phone with waterproof doesn't mean another company cant do the same.
Y'all need to remove your apple glasses and look at this as competition and not copying.
Sony and the xperia fans are definitely shaking with news like this, and this is what will motivate others to develop something even better.
Perhaps LG or Htc will bring out something like shatter proof or crack proof displays, and that's hiw tge cycle continues.

Japanese phones, not just smartphone flagships but even flip phones, had waterproof/dustproof many years ago...

Now i like this idea of S5, makes me forget bout Note3, can u also make a waterproof Note? that would be perfect.
This copycat argument is ridiculous.
Samsung is just giving what smart users want, water/dust proof design and rich multitasking capabilities. You get more for what you pay for.

Sammy's copying Apple and Sony's strategy. If only strategies can be patented. Sammy's just a pure copycat.

As if this waterproofing on the phone is a make or break situation. If you are going to buy a phone based on this feature, you must have some serious issues when it comes to taking care of your belongings.

I could careless about water and dust proof, the most common problem with phone especially the big screen one is they screen get crack when it drop, drop proof from 4 or 5 feet is what consumer want.
