[deleted post]Holy crap! I didn't even realize that! And it is unmistakebly, 100% true! Everything that is better about another device is something pointless. When the Iphone does it though it's so amazing. Like any multi media powerhouses. The iphone is all about multimedia correct? Well they try and say HD and good cams and amoleds and good speakers and all kinds of other nice features like so are pointless, until Iphone does something or those things. I had someone telling me that apple was the best thing in the world and he had a I4. His reasoning was because it had thread texting. My razr does that. Because he could listen to music while texting. Then finaly that it had the best quality speakers in any phone...........rriiiiggghhtttt.... He compared it to the other android phones and had no clue what he was talking about. He would say "the droid" over and over trying to specify one or all at the same time or something. He didn't even know any actual droid to compare to. Just the droid, comparing his I4 to all droids and the os all in "the droid" pretty much. And that the other good phones play movies better than the iphone yes but the iphone is the best. Didn't know what the hell he was talking about, knew nothing about the iphone, i schooled him on the iphone, and had pretty much no clue about any other phone or os or about the technology in any of them. And this are the kind of people that make up the majority of the apple fans.... It's so sad.

hahahah right.. and it does'nt mean that apple owns this tech i mean common
OK time to put and END to all this Foolishness -- Just so everyone knows Apple was the FIRST to be sued by Nokia of copyright infringements - Just go here and then be quiet going forward (Iphone trolls) http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2383827,00.asp
FURY, 20 Apr 2011In the heat of the moment Sony has joined in with the lawsuit frenzy..they too are suing Samsu... moreOh no you are right! And wow all pc's look the same too! Who is gonna make the claim on that? And all cars and trucks have doors and wheels and motors and windows..... oh no everyone in the world is completely copying everyone else! Everyone immediately go and make a law suite against anyone and anything while you can. It's ligit after all.
In the heat of the moment Sony has joined in with the lawsuit frenzy..they too are suing Samsung due to the vast similarities with Sony LCD TV's and Samsung's..Here are the hard facts...both are square..both have LCD screens and both play TV Shows and Movies they come in the same sizes and most Blatant of all they both come in the colour Black. Sony is now requesting the removal of all Samsung LCD TV's.
WTF apple is talking about? all the phones these days are like this, what they want smasung to do? make a triangular or circular phone so it does not look like iphone? all smart phones with these huge touchscreens are the SAME, HTC NOKIA SAMSUNG IPHONE LG are all the same, except that some make it thicker some put camera key some put menu key but its all the same, a dominant screen with some extras. yeah apple came with this first but now its every where, i can even make one of my own.. its like the first one who made keyboard come and ask for copyrights!
Apple is just jealous cause samsung is making better phones like who wants an apple its a closed unit you cant sync it to any other music software only itunes its a closed unit so you cant take the back off. The galaxy is an open unit and can be synced to any music player the user interface is still very different to apple iphone like it has a drop down bar you can place widgets you can place icon were ever you choose its very customizable. Personal Apple are jealous cause samsung have made a great phone/Operating system and are going to make a better Phone/operating system. Serious Suck it up apple.
phone companies want their phones to be smart. So they send each other suits. I'll take the pinstripe.
The design of phones was bound to cross over eventually. Is apple saying that because the Galaxy S is black and has a home key in the middle, it is copying them? Apparently Apple has creative licence over the square now too.

To ALA who earlier said Koreans copy cars. Mate, I've been in Hyundai's research facility as an intern and trust me, that just isn't true. Ssyangyong maybe, but then they're majority owned by the Chinese these days. The real copiers are the Chinese (eg, Great Wall vehicles ACTUALLY have replica Toyota Hilux under-chassis; only a matter of time before Toyota sues GW's ass silly). Back to Hyundai, I recall a few years back (memory serves correct at 2004???) when a few Ford execs offered Hyundai alot of cash for their Sonata blue-prints and manufacture-and-rebrand rights. Hyundai then go and huddle with themselves, then asked for a pretty sum AND blueprints for Ford's pickup range (which Hyundai don't have experience in, and the only thing Ford was really good for back then). Ford backed out cause they couldn't risk losing the one thing they were / are successful with. Not bashing Ford; it was just how it happened when fuel-guzzlers started becoming unattractive with fuel prices and all...
...anyways, back to the story at hand.
I do agree in saying Samsung has taken a decent chunk of potential sales from Apple. That said, I also agree in saying the GUI (notably the icons, starting from the S8500 with the BADA OS) have an uncanny resemblence to that of iOS. So I'll take Apple's side when it comes to the software.
What I cannot understand is the hardware part. So what? FULL touch phones can't really take on another form-factor; they're just slabs to begin with. As said below, LG should then sue Apple's rosy pearl-white ass back to hell for copying Prada for all I care.
That plus, Apple USES Samsung bits and bobs in their devices. I see to possible outcomes.
1) Samsung stops selling Apple their stuff and Apple has to go through the struggle of finding another supplier (and re-sourcing parts, contracts etc etc; delays in order no doubt especially with Japan and recent related disasters)
2) The other way with Apple being a huge customer of Samsung forces a discount in part prices
As a Korean myself, I think 1) is more likely but... We'll see how this pans out.
Makka Cha, 20 Apr 2011LG should sue the hell out of iPhone for copying LG Prada.EXACTLY! And since Apple can say the reason they waited this long because it wasnt a problem before then lg can use the same excuse
Reading over at XDA it seems that Apple copied Samsung and LG?
I think this is just a desperate move on Apple since the SGS 2 will be released in less than 2 weeks. Too bad Apple doesn't have enough creativity to build a better iPhone design and specs.

"Samsung Galaxy looks exactly like iPhone 3G S, except the bottom keys". If it has exceptions then it isn't the same. It's like saying Mars is exactly like the earth besides it lacks Oxygen. Can't have something that looks the same and be different at the same time.
