You're thinking that all who buy iPhones are just buying it for show? Lol. Btw, lemme just remind you that apple's app store had the biggest collection of premium apps and exclusive titles.

Innovation for Apple = pay someone else to do it. Truly at the forefront of the industry????????

once again apple takes old inventions and turn it into something good, like they did when they rediscovered Gorilla glass, when they redefined fingerprint authentication (still unmatched) and now with sapphire glass.
History is full of examples of this, success doesnt come from inventing something but to find great ways to use it. For example Nickel-Iron batteries, the inventor felt they were so bad that he didnt bother much about it, Edison later took the invention and developed it and made considerable money from it.
Spark, 24 May 2014How hard is it to buy a 2$ screen protector? Problem solved.Most complains for apple is that thier screen is not that strong, they break the most, saph glassed are scratch proof and even can bear easily fall from 5-6 feet...solving major complain of apple phones.....(£2 scract resistant ....lol)
looks like nobody (especially fruit fanboys) read the article until the very end of it.
the article said :
"It’s also been reported that both Korean cell phone manufacturers looked into Sapphire display manufacturing as early as last year, but ultimately decided to forgo the process, as it was considered too expensive of an endeavor."
Qammy, 24 May 2014Did you not read the article? It said that they have been researching it since last year! Th... moreIf Lg and Samsung had started it one year ago, then Apple has started long before that.
That's what we here from them. These manufactors know these information about others soon after they decide about it. For example Apple has made a partnership for mass production even befor last year.
The writer of this article never thought for one moment that both companies produce watches? Did it cross their mind that the request for samples might be for these devices rather than phones?
I believe that this will put additional cost on smartphones. I think that it is not necessary since cellphone manufacturers are using shatter proof and scratch proof glasses particularly gorilla glass and the like. For me, they should focus on how to create a long lasting battery without sacrificing the weight and the thinness of the phone.
B, 24 May 2014This prove that Samsung is a copycat..... not AppleDid you not read the article? It said that they have been researching it since last year! That was before rumours started appearing about apple using it, which was only a couple of weeks ago.
Seriously people need to actually read and not just pick out the points that they want to promote.

Sapphire is much better if it can stand the sands.
Anonymous, 23 May 2014Apple invented the screenthe fact is 2011 Symbian-powered Vertu Constellation and 2013 Android-powered Vertu Ti are using sapphire glass screen already.
so, no, Apple didn't invent anything.

samsung was a food maker company in korea
others made phones for years before rotten fruit, so rotten fruit also copycat? .. let's face it, rotten fruit is the biggest shameless copycat of all time LOL
Sapphire coating is not big thing and not necessary . Gorilla glass is enough to protect from scratch. Only sapphire can't prevent from breaking screen when it drops. This costs just $8 to $10 more . This is just Apple's elephant teeth to sale its cheap phone ,($199 for 5s ) may be ($215 for next), in $1000 or more in the market. Only those don't know smart phones quality, prices, specifications, functionality , , technology and who are fool buying iphone. I think phone companies should focus on new innovation not on cover .
