SDKforLumia, 10 Sep 2015Very well written article George. Especially that very last point."And just to be clear we are perfectly fine with companies borrowing inspiration from their competitors - in fact it's great to see as that's how we as users get better products. It's just Apple might want to bring that "holier than thou" attitude down a notch." Oh yeah...
SDKforLumia, 10 Sep 2015Very well written article George. Especially that very last point.right indeed.

Oh! before I forget, if you are a sincere defender of Apple, be warned: for if you dare watch in all of these videos, one; or more; if not all of these, might cost you, to experience a heart-attack!!
Mdrrrrr apple pencil.....force touch mdrrr....we really need force touch? To do what? Suck apple. No more upgrade my 5s. Move to note edge.

If they release it without any negotiations, they won't get any money from it, which means it would be like any other feature the phone offers. They can release it now and negotiate later, which they'll probably do if they can't negotiate in time. They're not Apple, bursting with greed, mind you." Thank you! for standing in the side of the truth.

So it would be dead equal to using your card." right indeed! he's just trying to deceive the world with his comments, really hoping that he could somehow, persuade one or more of the readers in this very thread for them to buy their iToy.

(lol) For the 100th time Samsung doesn't need to 'convince any banks.'" either he is not that bright/smart enough to fully comprehend, like his dumb phone which is so slow to catch the competition; or, he is in-the-mood, of; utmost abnegation!
You GSMAs are so biased
Since day 1 and introduction of the first iPhone you always tried to spoil it
Speaking of innovations here's the list
1- a phone with capacitive all touch interface, LG very quickly released its half baked Prada, but it was Apple that showed the real advantage of it
2- finger print scanner, Pantech had it but Apple made it a very useful feature
3- 3D touch, Huawei sent out something but again it's Apple that proves it is useable
Being 1st is not all the innovation

It requires no additional hardware and works like existing tap and go credit cards. while Apple pay requires new hardware. 'Samsung pay doesn't require banks to implement, because it just works.'"

Examples would be fingerprint reader, paying system, premium design, awesome camera etc. I can't believe we've reached a point where Apple struggles to catch up to Samsung, like this phone proves."
I couldn't say anything more! Thanks to you, one of the many billion cyber defenders of the truth!

This, is simply the most unbiased article I've read here in GSM-Arena, in my whole lifetime! Hmm at least, aside from the site's new-look, we are finally now, beginning to see a real-change, in terms of publishing an article about true technological innovation! Great work there, George!...

I hope that Z5 will be just as loud, but iphone? come on.. it doesn't even have that many music options in comparison, let alone the stereo speakers!

Check you ge... moreI have the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with stylus...It is due for an upgrade as I've had it for 2 years. I have used the stylus maybe 3 times as it is horrible to use. To try and write with it is almost pointless as the software struggles to interpret my handwriting. it also constantly gets confused with my hand resting on the surface so you have to hold the tip of the stylus on the surface without your hand touching and still it gets the input wrong...I wait hopefully to see how Apple takes this technology and perfects it for seamless user friendliness.
K.C.S, 11 Sep 2015About the last part in the article - that's the reason this was published as a blog, which is ... more I may have minced by words, writing review instead of article; but the tone of the article was downright condescending. The writer or blogger just wanted to bash Apple apparently for something, which none of the Apple executives said that day. Tim Cook or his employees, never, for once said, that, with the iPhone 6S duo, they are inventing something. But the last line of the article and the title sums up the content. If the blogger had to talk about what Apple exes said previously, he should have spared the newly announced iPhones and spoken about how Apple bragged at the 5s launch or how Steve Jobs bragged about making the most advanced smartphone in the world back in 2010 with the iPhone 4.
