Its really sad to see Samsung presenting their future inovations as their own.
They are just copying everything on the market in their own "hybrid wanna have all tech" device.
The inability to inovate clearly shows someone's limits.
Being a copy machine won't get you anywhere, Samsung.Time will certainly prove that.
Just my 2 cents.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2015Once again, Samsung has showcased it's superb ability to 'seek inspiration' from others.Just like Apple stole it from Huawei huh?
Typhoon, 14 Oct 2015Apple says jump,Samsung asks how high..Hey that's a legit question. :)

And how much is iOS cost? How much is App Store cost? How much is Apple's R&D that gave us Siri, Touch ID, True-tone flash, 3D Touch and all those design that Androids are copying?
How much is Samsung spending developing Android? Maintain the Play Store? Update Maps? All $0.
You are paying Samsung $700-800 for a phone that literally cost Samsung $250 to build because Samsung isn't responsible for the software and ecosystem.
Why do Android users hate each other and their phones?? Stop complaining..Stop obsessing over useless specs/features..Just buy an iPhone and join the rest of the happy Apple users..
3D touch is just a fancy name! Samsung had this option years back with Airview, you can have a peek on your Email, msgs .. etc WITHOUT even touching your screen! no force touch or whatever.
Whoever talking about IPhone sales, Iphone6S sales are low comparing to IPhone6, I have good contacts with retailers here in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, one of them told me: "sales for iphone6S is not as good as iphone6 we ordered 400 and only sold around 80, we have stock for any color or capacity you want"
So you Apple guys just wait for this quarter results and you will see.
Now my message is to Google its your time to hit iOS back, same goes with Samsung make that S7 beautiful and unique you can kill iPhone its the RIGHT time now.
What's the different with 3D touch and long press? Is it even worth the extra price?

It costs Apple a measly $200-$240 to build the iPhone 6 and the most costly part is the touchscreen(made by JDI, Samsung), which cost around $50. Apple sells their iPhone 6(base model) at $649(US price), giving Apple a profit margin of around 65%-70%(per base level device). So basically you are paying $200 for the hardware and $449 for the brand(you get a nice Apple logo on the back of the phone, Yaaaayy:).
Using proprietary parts does not automatically mean it's better. I don't know how you come to that conclusion. Using proprietary screws, ports and connectors, just means Apple won't let you fix your device yourself, and you have to buy overpriced Apple certified repair parts, cables and chargers.

All 3D touch crazy people check this out. It's about 1.5 years ago.
AnonD-420777, 14 Oct 2015When 5s introduces fingerprint scanner, then S5 follows. When 6s introduces touch 3d, then S7 ... moreIt is the executives fault. They just want to rival the iPhone anyway possible, to sell more phones. Basically they only care about profit maximation. So capitalism is directing Samsung not technology and science. Engineers, developers, designers etc. has no say. They just get an order to mimic an existing technology of their rivals to compete. It's a sad trend yes.
Samsung copies others, yet apple does that too, what about multi window support they introduce on apple's iPad etc. Anyway I like Samsung since it offers same/low price with lot of features and freedom which apple doesn't, we can't even set the volume of alarm and notifications separately then why pay 800$ ? just because it's very smooth ? well my Galaxy note 5 is super smooth.
