These comments are absolutely hillarious, droidboys are like an open book! lmao
Predictably, Samesung is stealing another Apple idea. So far, we've had Touch ID, Samesung Apple Pay, Samesung Wallet, and now 3D Touch. Sammy are less like "Next is Now", and more like "Next is whatever our engineering department in Cupertino designs." Smh.
apple makes a smartphone Samsung follows and ditches flip phones and start to making phones similar to the Iphone 1.
Apple releases finger print lock --------------------------------> then samsung follows apple by making something similar in finger print swipe. this project was a failure, it rarely work, but as long as their was finger print unlock in samsungs devices it was good enough for them.
Apple releases apple pay ---------------------------------> samsung releases samsung pay AFTER apple pay
apple introduces "3d" touch, 1st uses force touch, knowing it will be copied, apple surprises everyone by renaming it 3d touch at the launch----------------------------> samsung about to release samsung pay.
joonius, 20 Oct 2015Haha, so what new functions did Apple bring with this new 3D Touch? Peek? Menu? Wow. No one'... moreThat's just the start, get a 6s and use it, you will see that you will no longer be blind and ignorant ;) another thing to bare in mind is that the 6s is an introduction to the 3D touch tech, the 7 will implement it in more ways than it currently does (which is more than peak and pop as you think) the 7s it will be perfect. The 8 up it will be mandatory. Have a look at the 5s, which was an intro to fingerprint scanning, the 6 which took it one step further and then the 6s which incorporates Touch ID 2nd gen making it blazing fast and near perfect. Your ignorance shines dear sir, brighter than any sun in the observable universe.
Gio, 20 Oct 2015Why ? Just why do we need 3D touch? Apple had to invent a new technology for a simple software... moreThat is ur home problem if in android touch and hold reveals more options, us iphone users dont hv that much of time to touch and hold just only to get additional shortcuts, and besides in iOS world touch and hold on an app icon brings u to arranging app icons and uninstall them, next time if u know nothing how to use ios just pls keep it to urself..
I do not see great value in force touch gimmicks. There is no great difference in the next screen or just popping out a window temporarily....in either case, the workflow shall get back to the same original starting point. This interface could make the simple touch interface too complicated at later point.
MONEYRELIGION, 20 Oct 2015samsung,apple,sony,black berry.... who cares....all of the copy each other ..that just the wa... morewho care android copy each other , but really big issue if apple copy other ~ logic here
regs, 20 Oct 2015the real question is why apple has copied 3d touch from huawei?what if apple didnt put 3d touch on their iphone , i dont think samsung will follow huawei using 3d touch.....
3d touch useful or not depends on how many factor such as: is the hardware good, is the software can utilize the hardware, can developer implement it quickly & perfectly, is user wants to learn to use it in their everyday mobile computing task..
As for samsung, we all know they mostly following apple steps for example: samsung pay, no sd card slot, non-removable battery, fingerprint, rose gold color, changing tab aspect ratio to 4:3 (same as ipad) and now they will implement 3d touch, etc..
Honest Realist, 20 Oct 2015At some point all he droidboys who said that Samsungs hover crap (dont know what it is called)... moreHaha, so what new functions did Apple bring with this new 3D Touch? Peek? Menu?
Wow. No one's ever seen that before. So much innovation!
HAHA!, 20 Oct 2015fanboi denial spotted, so what who copied who , its a TREND , zzzExcept that it's fact. All OEM's will forever copy each other. They all want to be the best so that their product will be bought. They will always try to one up each other. This thing about copying is getting old.
Nobody can say that a certain OEM didn't copy. They can only make excuses, but it was still copying. It's called advancing in technology. Samsung copied Apple and Apply copies Samsung.
Everything is about money. I'm not complaining. Just saying. Any company will do anything to make money. Whether it's copy or or invent "useless" features. They want to win the market. Money is the same reason OEM's buy hardware from other OEM's; it works out cheaper to use.
erina, 20 Oct 2015yup agree and samesung is greedy !All OEM's are greedy. Every brand of every product is greedy. Every single company wants to make money. Isn't that the point?
spider hunter, 20 Oct 2015Technology from note 3, galaxy S5 till note edge is perfect and enough for daily usage. But be... moreThen buy a midrange phone. Flagship phones are to push the boundaries of technology. We shouldn't want them to limit themselves, or else technology will get nowhere.
That and marketing "better" features to consumers. Some consumers like the hype of being able to do something epic with their cellphone. Some people like advances in technology, for the sake of technology, and not the practicality. That's who the flagships are for.
Buy yourself a stable midrange phone, that doesn't have new features.
samsung always copied frm apple n again samsung is copying from apple it simply means that yet samsung is behind from apple's technology n it will be always lol droid boyzzz ;)
Just short press and long press will do. No need physical tech pad required. That kind of option popups are already there in android launchers so long ago.
Samsung is corrupted corporation. Still many people support them. I am not a fan of neither Samsung or Apple.
one finger, 20 Oct 2015Ok! Now gsmarena is spreading rumor that samsung has the idea of 3d touch since april 2014 to ... moreHey.. You comment before on note 5 color Topic, you use information in gsmarena to disagree with our comment. Now you said like that because you disagree what they Said now... Hahahahaa... LoL... Typical apple fanboy
