Just to make it clear - First phone made by Samsung-1996 and Apple-2007 ... so who's copy who ?!!! Apple came to this game after hard work was done, specially by Nokia,Motorola, Ericsson etc. They are biggest copycats ;-)

This proves once again that Samsung never copy from Apple. They're just following the trend. And Apple is the trend setter. And my statements are not contradictory.

Apple haters are so dumb, they think that people who buy a product are blind to everything else around them. And they call Apple fans stupid. LOL.

Apple have NEVER said they invented anything. They may have said they innovate, but that's a much broader term, something Apple haters just cannot get their tiny minds around.

I guess swiping is required because the home button is smaller on this phone than the iphone, as the iphone home button's size means it can accommodate most of a fingerprint.

> In reply to thatGuy @ 2014-02-18 15:45 from rv2I - click to readYeah I agree I love Samsung Electronics, but recently I have felt let down by there products just the Mobile division anyway. They haven't brought anything new to the market for a few years thats got me saying im excited but as with anything these days we are limited in the RnD department due to all these law suits. Apple is a major factor in why we ain't seen any new features and vice versa as there always fighting in court. To note I have an Iphone but prefer Samsung but not liked any of there phones since the S2. If you want to ask the reason I picked Apple if i prefer Samsung well because im not biased to brand but more value for money and on the market the Iphone 4s is probably the best right now.
