Apple why not suing the chinese market they are making Iphone4G instead of 4S chines almost same design and selling it in 70$ max
Sue them over design not for whats inside obviously
Why do crApple fangirls always like to start flames and disrespect other people? I, for one, like to see real tough competition in all markets...that makes the technology evolve a lot faster, designs to be innovated and prices to drop. Or maybe you'd like we all had same phone, same computer, use same software, drive same car and so on?! Patents need to be eliminated so various companies can start producing stuff we really need/like...or in 100 years we're still gonna drive gas cars.
seems apple hard work is being sell at higher rates by other companies !!
what about notification center!please dont say that notidication center is not a copy!
and compare iphone design vs lg prada design and you will find who is copycat!
There is nothing strange in dissecting and examining what the market leader is doing, trying to learn from it and improve it. It's not necessarily copying and ALL companies do that, from marketing to engineering, pharma, automobile design and so on.
You do not learn as much examining and studying failed cases. Did you expect to have Samsung spending time studying the competition on Symbian, for instance?
me, 08 Aug 2012I have respect for Nokia, Apple, Sony, and htc. I have no respect for Samsungno one here has respect for you
This is just surveying, there is nothing wrong with this picture. It's to be able to improve Samsungs UI and learn from what worked and did not work on other devices (pros and cons). Competitors do this all the time and it's not illegal or being a copy.
last year Apples marketing budget was around $2.6 billion. Thats why the uneducated masses are still buying inferior Apple products when there are phones on the market that are newer, more powerful and generally better for the exact same price (often cheaper), it's nothing to do with iPhones actually being any good.
In any corporate design meeting, it's really nothing new or out of ordinary to make a detail comparision with rival products & what need to be done to made improvement. This is called product development. Only school children will think Apple suddenly create an amazing product overnight. They also made numerous internal product feature comparision & looking at rival products as reference. Benchmarking anyone??
Don't tell me Toyota never benchmarked their car against rival like Ford & GM in order to create breakthrough product.
The only different this time is, unlike company like Ford & GM, Apple is a crybaby who is too timid with 'COMPETITION' !!!!!
With first sign of Samsung success in duplicating iPhone archivement with their Galaxy line, Apple try to stop it with in most childish way.
My message to Apple: Screw you!!
reez, 08 Aug 2012Dude, thing is court can't say straight away that it's whole different product as there is mor... moreAgreed. Samsung makes a great deal of phones... problem is with each different variant comes an increased design and production cost... thus greatly reducing the amount of profit per device. Overall Samsung could be making a lot more $$$ but sadly for them they can't. They have way too much overhead! Apple on the other hand keeps its model lineup rather small. So profits can be as big as possible. You are correct - its all about money. But why be in business in the first place? Why does anyone start a company? One of the biggest reasons is to make money!
i realized that samsung is a bad brand... not all people know this until they experienced how they bad they are. Almost all of their galaxies experiencing bootloops, error emmc, bad firmwares and etc...
Xenocid, 08 Aug 2012Samsung is mainly hradwear manufacturer. Apple only marketing manufacturer. What happens when ... moreMarketing manufacturer???? Apple spends a ton of money on research and development and design. The only thing that makes them different from Samsung in this regard is that they don't actually make their hardware in house in the United States. Apple also is huge on software development.
pmcjoe, 08 Aug 2012I do not know why Apple is behind Samsung with such things, as in today's fierce competition y... moreDude, thing is court can't say straight away that it's whole different product as there is more and more evidence coming, proving that Samsung actually copied iPhone to some degree. Shame really, that suing and court battles go on and on, but it's all about the MONEY, so don't expect that war to be over anytime soon. As for who is no1 in smartphone industry, I wouldn't say that Apple can't get on Samsung neck. Korean giant is top seller with millions of units sold every month - there is no denying that, but when it comes to making money of them, nothing comes close to Apple. By nothing I mean there is really no competition for Apple at the moment, as they are indisputably kings of the market in terms of making profit. Is it good for us, customers? That's different story.
PS. I personally own HTC Desire S and I'm happy with it.
Samsung analyze the competition and use it to improve stuff on their phones = illegal copyright infringement.
Apple do the same = OMG WELL THEY MUST HAVE COPIED APPLE IN THE FIRST PLACE.
I believe that Samsung are well within their rights to do this, as is any company with a decent brain behind it. Especially considering just how many of the components in an iPhone are manufactured by Samsung.
So in essence: If samsung werent around the iPhone wouldn't exist.
If the iPhone didn't exist, smart phones maybe wouldn't be quite where they are atm. Maybe they would even be better, who knows?
Apple NEEDS Samsung. Samsung need nobody.
Also, before i hear cries of "SAMSUNG FANBOY!" i'm currently using a HTC One X.
a lot of ur guys are realy mad!!
that function and style apple showd
are standart, for example the play and stop button

WJS, 08 Aug 2012i have respect for apple devices but zero respect for Apple! Samsung deserve some respect.Agreed.
iPhones aren't actually a bad device, but it's just Apple.
