notafanboy, 24 May 2014samsung made their own display (amoled), their own proc (exynos), their own battery cell, thei... moreWhat? Every company does that, it is normal, and Apple is not a semiconductor company, that's why they only design their processors and then hire other company services to do the manufacturing. That's nothing wrong with that. You're saying that Apple is inferior to Samsung and LG because these companies produces cloth washing machines, air conditioners, refrigerators etc, is that right? Beacuse this is a complete bullshit.
Striker, 25 May 2014Because Apple uses it. That's why. :) All yellowish manufacturers do well only one thing - copy.Vertu have been using it for ages and all of the manufacturers was presented with a cheaper spphire glass last year.
I still have my concerns and fear it will be too brittle, but only time will tell.
Striker, 25 May 2014Because Apple uses it. That's why. :) All yellowish manufacturers do well only one thing - copy.so apple is not copying? as if the sapphire coating technique is invented by apple?
Anonymous, 25 May 2014So they innovated saphire glass?? U mean the type of glass thats on the galaxy gear watch?? iO... moreIOS was not an innovation because the program code in it was originally based on linux.......my friend
Was one of the IOS programmer but he retired two yrs ago
Actually, Ubuntu phone did announce sapphir crystal screen wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy before apple.
Show once more whose the copycat.
Anonymous, 25 May 2014Why do we need sapphire when we have gorilla glass?Because Apple uses it. That's why. :) All yellowish manufacturers do well only one thing - copy.

Abdullah, 23 May 2014The real question is "Will they be starting to copy Apple?"Like Apple copied everyone else that was using Sapphire glass on something before them?
There is only one winner here and that is the Saphire Glass producers. Profits everywhere now.

Apple didn't innovate anything and every man and his dog knows this who aren't blind. Im sure Apple fanboys slated samsung and other companies for having plastic phones yet when Apple do it then its fine. Samsungs design don't change apparently whereas Apples do?? 4 years identical design anyone??

Welcome to Phase 2 now, the typ... moretroll or apple fan boy ?
to answer your question none of these companies are big into innovation - it's simply pull out some old ideas/technology (that have been done before) put a new paint of coat on it give it a spiffy name rinse and repeat over and over again
I couldn't care less if the iphone has this or the galaxy has that
what really annoys me is the behaviour of these big companies in regards to patent laws or rather the stupid things that can be patented
in the end the consumer pays for it
(no I don't have a Samsung phone nor am I an Apple user and yes I've used both android and ios before also the various older Symbian/windows mobile systems)

Welcome to Phase 2 now, the typical "What did Apple innovate?" while somehow avoiding that question for their own beloved companies.
Next week Phase 3, where sapphire is amazing, because Samsung is using it, and insulting a new piece of Apple news lol.
Samsung fanboys, the new breed of super sheep.
Igor88bg, 25 May 2014Sapphire glass, SIRI, design, Touch ID , App Store, iOS , Multitouch, retina..... And lot lot ... moreSo they innovated saphire glass?? U mean the type of glass thats on the galaxy gear watch?? iOS?? i should home they did innovate their own operating system as its all the brag about!! Touch ID has been around for years, way before apple. App store has been around for ages and was on windows first! Retina display is just "Apple talk" for basically a HD screen. Apple would call a pot washer a "underwater ceramics handler". So from what you have said Apple have innovated iOS, and thats it! Well done Apple for being the "leading innovator".
htcownerguy, 25 May 2014yeps....sane and unbiased people knew well iPhone was the first touchcsreen phoneu must definitely be born after 2001 or 2002 .... back then there were touch screen phones from sony and nokia and probably motorola .. they used stylus to operate. learn before saying some nonsense ... only ur HTC phone has "SENSE" better u also get some
