I've never seen more sheep than apple owners. Even with proof that all their company does is assemble stuff other people created they still think it's original. So in their mind a house isn't made up of the components but how the house looks. Sapphire glass won't be a question for an iPhone since Apple knows their foolish fan base will pay anything for next unit regardless when it's shown to have any inferiority. No matter what you tell them they ignore all logic and continue on. Apple's advertising team is the best in the business; they could sell snow to an Eskimo in winter. I believe the Palm Treo is considered the first smartphone. Then several windows mobile phones thereafter. Yet because Apple made it "cool" many years later with a capacitive touchscreen and they must be the smartphone inventor? In reality all they did was dumb it down for the masses, removing any techy thing about it. Sorry but rants from the 1938 Germans here have forced me to post. Apple fan-boys not everything your dead leader told you is true. OPEN YOUR EYES!
nah,,, what's new. they are always charging their flagships with insane price. in such a cheap looking phone. im talking to you Sammy
Honestly, sapphire is right up there with 64 bit ARM SOCs as the two most most redundant and unneeded features for a smartphone. Sapphire is harder than tempered glass, yes, but it is also more brittle so more likely to shatter on impact. Also, it allows less light through, you'll use more juice to pump out the same brightness
The biggest benefit of using sapphire and 64 bit SOCs is going to be marketing.

They copied vertu for using sapphire displays, they copied motorola for their fingerprint sensor, they can't lived without supplies from samsung, they copied the notification drawer from android but which they claimed it was burrowed to cover their asses off

Agapito Flores of then Coommonwealth of Philippines, then a colony of USA, made the first succesful flourescent lamp that now bears his name, but being so poor, he approached then Manuel Quezon, Commonwealth President, who help him sold the invention to General Electric. GE engineers patented the invention but with the saving grace of Flores name finding its way to the invention as Flourescent lamp, so named because of its white glow.

Yes man Samsung is manufacturing almost all kinds of electronics to heavy equipmensts but apple is just assembling others products. Apple has not produced even mobile battery hahahaaaaaaaaasss
if i remember right a few years ago the company that makes the sapphire furnaces did a show and put the screens on iphones to demo, the guy said the cost between corning and sapphire was about 23 cent, they should have always used this i have been thinking about this since my htc evo.
Anomynous, 24 May 2014So they werent smart enough to make it viable, how is that a good thing? once again apple ... moreEdison is a prime example of popularity vs innovation. If edison is apple then samsung will be Nikolai Tesla. Heard of Tesla before? He competes directly with edison in electrical technology. While Edison invented the light bulb Tesla invented the flourescent lamp. While Edison was pushing for DC as power transmission Tesla is moving forward with AC system. Guess who's invention reign supreme today? Yup we use all of Tesla's invention but we keep saying edison this edison while his inventions are obsolete. Same with Apple and samsung, we say apple this apple that meanwhile the true inventor is samsung.
People are calling samsung as copycat but they are still using Samsung devices, hahaha :)
