do you even know what apple patented? they patented "rectangle gadget with round corner." i mean which gadget dosent have it? it like patenting round,circle in shape rubber then sueing all tire companies. i mean on first hand how did they were able to pattent round edges? it not like they invented round edges. apple is patent troll. next they will patent word AIR and sue all 7 billion people in world
what a buyer needs is a device is a good looking,right size,attractive color which can do the right things.what companies can do is to come tngether produce a super device.
no wonder why apple came up with this. . .5c's sales charts must have gone terribly wrong. . .
What exactly is Apple suing Samsung for? If it's Samsung infringing Apple's patents, why does Samsung not pay to license those patents like they did to Nokia so they'll be spare from all this litigation?
AnonD-1544, 09 Dec 2013Gsmarena makes it as if those two companies are battling with each other, well they're not. It... moreif apple sues all the companies that uses their patents, then I would gladly say I am a blind ANDROID user.
its not about the shape is the real issue here. the issue here is Sansung copying that's the fact sammy fans! example, the build quality of iphones and the colorful iphone 5c conccept and the color black and white colors iphone high end and now Samsung making a metal devices with their upcoming galaxy that Apples idias... and the note 3 is a complete joke with iOS6 softwares.
Apple, let it rest. Face it. Samsung is outselling you. If you can offer more than an app tray... if you kept up with screen size sooner... if you'd offered 4g sooner - maybe this wouldn't have happened.
These lawsuit news are s annoying. Annoying because of Apple's greed. They would rather spend their resources on lawsuits rather than improving their tunes and their apple products. Only apple product I think is worth buying is the Apple TV.
Maybe I should patent the candybar shape... And sue everyone who uses the candybar shape on everything...
Gsmarena makes it as if those two companies are battling with each other, well they're not. It's a copycat company that has been stealing for ever from Apple and there is Apple that are strongly defending what they have been working hard for. Still not convinced? Well the court and law don't have time for games, and charging Samsung around 1 Billion truly speaks about how much they have been shamelessly stealing from others. Only a blind Samsung follower fails to see the obvious.
We, as consumer, have the power to stop this endless brawl. Stop buying things from the awful. As simple as “You don’t like a TV show, turn it off”
IJudge, 08 Dec 2013After using my sister’s note2 for 1week i hardly can go back to 5" s4 . I believe apple ... moreI didn't say that 5" is too big. The S4 screen in my opinion is perfect. But a Note 3 or Mega phablet, or even the Xperia lineup, are no phones to me. They are tablets. Now, I don't own a tablet because I'm happy with a smartphone only. I can do everything on a smartphone, and yes, it's a smaller screen.
You can only go so big before it gets out of control.
Protocol, 08 Dec 2013Samsung deserves to pay Apple that much money for copying their patented technology! Do you know what Apple patented? They fucking patented a rectangular display with rounded edges. That's like patenting the wheel. How did this even get past the patent office?
Why apple is not putting case on htc,sony,LG and other smart fone brands.
Why only Samsung??!!
Just bcoz Samsung have better product and most selling fone in world?!
I don't get Apple they keep going after Samsung, but yet most of the stuff inside the iPhone is supplied by Samsung, the only winners out of all of this are the lawyers which are just raking in the cash.
Apple need to stop acting like a spoilt brat and start innovating instead of sueing, iPhone 6 needs to be something special, iOS8 need to add more alot more functionality than is currently with iOS7, another rehash of the iphone 5 won't do in 2014.
