First of all I will to make sure that who reads this dont consider me a fanboy or a hater(tho I use an iphone).
So imo Apple should stop doing things like this...Sneaky peaky and snach something from a no namer to use it cuz I am big and hes small...Second if they do it they should pay...
And now if Apple does what most sites are saying this year...I aint buying another iphone(or icreap) again...Ok this year i was reluctent to say at best not to get s8 insted of ip7 but if ip7s or 8 or whatever they call it its same as 6-6s-7 than for even more if they pull the ip 7s-8 scam I am off...this is ripping off ppl saying bascily" we know ower display its not amoled we know ower phone aint full display ...we know we dont have wireless charing...but you know what we will give you those if you pay us extra 200-300 euros for ower premium model...yeah yeah we know we could do it the normal way for every1 but no" if this happens icreap lost 1 customer I know 22mil-1 aint much but 22mil-4mil this year next year same it will count....Anyways I am not hateing any1 here just saying my humble opnion...but have to say if this ip 7s ip 8 happens than samung are way decent than apple...they dont ask for extra money to give you buttons on your phone ...and the sd card it is sure welcome ...So yeah apple pull rabbits out of your hat"ass" and dont be jerks
I think Apple will now invest more in it's legal team rather than it's engineering team! :'D

Data collected by Strategy Analytics notes that global smartphone shipments reached 353.3 million units in the first quarter of 2017. Of that 353.3 million, 21.5 million were the iPhone 7, with 17.4 million the iPhone 7 Plus.
Given those figures, the iPhone 7 claimed 6.1 percent of global smartphone sales, with the iPhone 7 Plus
total figures of iphone 7 and 7s sold is 38.98m units. is it consider a flop? LOL

As in 2016, Apple has seen another decline in sales of iPhones compared to the year-ago quarter. Apple attributed this to customers holding off buying a new phone in anticipation of the next model - thanks to rumours about the iPhone 7s or iPhone 8.
This year Apple sold 50.763mn iPhones during the quarter, which is less than the 51.193mn iPhones, sold in the same quarter of 2016. In the same quarter last year Apple saw a decline in iPhone sales compared to the same quarter a year before.
mark, 27 Jul 2017how sure are you that the ip7s is a flop? are you an analyst? hahaha Everyone who reads mobile tech sites knows that iphone 7s will be the same as iphone 7 which until now has seen lackluster sales.. People also will be waiting for iphone 8/X or whatever anniversary edition.. You don't have to be an analyst to predict the future if you have enough knowledge.. Same as you don't have to be a weatherman to know that rain is coming if you see a looming dark sky

After lawsuit brace yourself for 2000$ iPhone 8 with 1080 p Display haha
Dheevara, 27 Jul 2017Stealing? Your android itself is stolen from ios... dont forget thatlol yes its also stolen from ios lol
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2017Plot twist: apple has only 500$ million and now they are bankrupt.250 billion in cash and they go bankrupt for 500m? thats like pocket change for apple
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2017Ok. But what does that have to do with their comment?
Good info just oddly placedWhat i meant is do not be angry or absorbed on who started the original idea or who took it. Its never ending and will only consume you in hate.
But be always pushing the limits to find the next great tech, and praise them for it.
Don't be worry about the injustice:
Patent holders will get their money from lawsuits.
Innovators will get their money from profit.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2017Wow, just apple haters here. Interesting how you get so emotional about a company when you say... moreThere is a difference between being a hater and seeing the truth.
And haters here? As compared to the apple extremists that sworm almost every page on the web?
Dheevara, 27 Jul 2017Stealing? Your android itself is stolen from ios... dont forget thatLmfao. Riiiiiight

Anonymous, 27 Jul 2017wrongNo. That's quite exactly what apple had done

For example, finger scanner on a power button was granted. This patent was granted for the location of the finger print scanner. LOL. The power button is just a button.
abigfanoftechs, 27 Jul 2017It's well done that Apple reverse engineered partners' products, then call it R&D. The fir... moreLong ago.. wright bros invented airplane. They got a patent. Someone came to the flying industry also.. just as bright as them.. Curtiss. They got jealous and angry of him.. because he is so good at it.. and he refused to pay them licenses.. so they when into a lawsuit.
The lawsuit consumed the bros. They continue to put more and more effort into the lawsuit.. This never stop Curtiss.. the bros sue him.. he change his design.. the bros sue him again.. he change his design.. forever improving the air technology.. and better the future of mankind. The bros sue so much.. they forgot to innovate.. and was finally left in the dust.
So, don't bother much about patents, trolling or not trolling.. or lawsuits. Continue to innovate, change your design to overcome those patents, rise above everyone's tech, benefit mankind.
If you have patent.. good for you. Continue to innovate and improve in your area.. else you will ultimately lose.
Besides.. suing people have risk of failing, plus if the company moved to new ideas surpassing yours.. your patent become dust.
