Not Apple! Apple just copy it.
Galaxy, 10 Apr 2014Legacy developers supports legacy ecosystem. Cant teach old dogs new tricks.Same was said when android 1st launched and even when Microsoft changed from command user interface to graphical user interface. Now its time for NATURAL USER INTERFACE (NUI).
in software industry you have to upgrade your knowledge from time to time. And all the old dogs know that.
Microsoft has exceled in the development of a natural user interface. Cortana is the world's best speech recognition software. It is connected directly to the internet for voice database. it has a huge library of speech api's. The development using visual studio is also much easier than that for android.

Now who is the ... moreWell still Samsung. 1) Touch ID was under development for almost 2 years 2) The Atrix had a swipe motion recognition just like the Samsung Galaxy S 5 3) it was on the back of the device on the top center almost on the same positioning as the HTC MAX of the last year
It is obvious that Samsung blatantly copied Apple with this move no one can deny it. All you can come up with is half arguments that fingerprint recorgnition came way before that and it is true but that doesnt change who copied whom. But I don't feel like bashing Samsung as a brand. Everyone had its ups and downs. I love the Note lineup I hope they focus hardly on that in the future and don't put there the gimmicks of the G5. I myself own a Note 2 but it's rooted because touchwiz slowed things down with the time or maybe it was the fault of the processor. I have tried the new Note and it really is the obvious superior phablet to go for. the Galaxy S3 was the best smartphone in Samsung's history and I wish they would build their legacy on that. But they consumerized it to much with the S4 and now S5 .
Tcool, 11 Apr 2014It is a tablet not a phone. Don't mix. It doesn't have a calling function. Except that they did all Pocket PCs back in the day had calling facility. They tried throwing everything they could on those devices. They could even dual boot.

Mobilemaster, 10 Apr 2014Fujitsu was the first at making a device with fingerprint sensor.Can you state the name of the device or a link with the date it was released please ?
Tcool, 10 Apr 2014No evidence means not true.
Can you prove your claim?
Easy to say but hard to justify.HTC Shift under the the features section there is stated that it has a fingerprint scanner. This goes back in the day when Microsoft was trying too hard to set a foothold on the "mobile smartphone/tablet market ". This was called like many others back in the day a "Pocket PC" but basically it is almost the size of the Nexus 7 with a mobile 32 bit version of Vista.
As for the Touch ID this is an article on 27th of July by "The Telegraph" in 27 July 2012. You can read on the article the date and or days Apple buys AuthenTec biometrics company.
PS : The first link sends you to gsmarena the second is to the Telegraph both are legit news sites so don't worry.
As a software developer i will go for a platform with better api's and support for consumers so it is a no go for me . I'll save my money for now and wait for nokia to release windows phone 8.1 device. Because it has cortana. And future of computing is natural user interface.
these patents wars - lawyers liars mafias games to consumers costs .. corporate sleaze greed and legal systems which allow "legalised" frauds of billions $$$$ -designed by the corrupt crooks -
btw- handled a s5 today in shop - looks brilliant -fast smart -its sort of contract "marriage" x 2yrs if you wonna ..

IApple actually had bought a company that worked on biometrics1 year and a half before they released Touch ID probably because they were serious about it. If that was the case HTC should have done that since theyy came up with that long before them with HTC Shift and they were similar sensors. I am saying that is obvious where they got the hint and everybody knows that
Well if you need to namecall to regain your confidence that your brand of choice is the best and free yourself of your insecurities by namecalling others go on I would say have your share of trying to feel better
