User experience is different thing and each manufacturer has its own tricks... I cannot even use any other phone than Samsung because they dare to turn-off the screen while I am looking to them!!! HOW!!! That is because Samsung is the only one ho has "smart stay" which tracks you looking at it and keeps the screen on - how else can match that? Can apple do it? and this is 3 years old technology, still nobody matched it (maybe it is patented?).
What I am trying to day is not that apple user experience is bad, but that it is not more advanced than other major manufacturers, just uses different techniques (but they hardware definitely outdated).
There was reluctance from Major players, because it is Gimmick... furthermore while it makes tiny bit of sense on ios where the phones don't have dedicated keys for context actions, the android phones always had this functionality from very beginning, not sure what this feature should do in android - it would be even more gimmicky .

I can't wait to see what apple will release this year so I'll know what samsung and the rest will release next year.
Only Nokia made technologies that are worth, and useful in to their products. Let's hope Nokia come back and show all manufacturers what means innovation, and useful smartphone.
I like when companies introduce something new, but to be honest I haven't got this feature useful enough.
It's very big, much better to be 5"inches QHD, with this specs
force touch is the most useless feature like googles second page of search result..why they make big deal of it..i know because isgit used it
I will surely choose the Edge screen functionality over the force touch. It has a lot more things and purpose to offer, and it so it makes much sense.
Herodroid, 01 Mar 2016Oh crap. Apple flies in china with their patent documents in 3... 2... 1...China uses patent documents as toilet paper ;-)
sam, 01 Mar 2016Well if Samsung uses force touch, all the Apple fans are going to make a big drama that Apple ... moreYou know what. It maybe similar for those phones that you said who have force touch but if you really compare it, it totally has a huge difference. Look at what Apple's force touch can do than the phone before who alledgly has FT. Com'on kid makes sense. If you really have the phone right now that can do the same as iPhone force touch did you probably go locked up yourself for shame. Don't you?
What's the point of having 3d touch screen in a phone if there are no single apps in the play store using this feature?
Well if Samsung uses force touch, all the Apple fans are going to make a big drama that Apple innovated force touch and Samsung copied it , even though other companies has used this technology before Apple
But Apple innovated !!!! Like seriously ;)
Oh crap. Apple flies in china with their patent documents in 3... 2... 1...
