It will be a matter of time before the ZTE's or Huawei's of the world start producing knockoffs for hundreds less. Right now ZTE is producing a 4.3" android smartphone that can be bought for $250 (for Boost customers on Sprint's network).

Next year, I wouldn't be surprise to see ZTE or Huawei phones that have comparable features for the Samsung's Galaxy line. By then, Samsung will have the learned the bitter medicine of someone copying their technology without paying for it.

Yep, me, too, and unless I switch carriers or one of the newer phones comes to AT&T, I plan on getting the SGS2.

if ZTE can pull off the usability of touchwiz + the power of exynos + the beauty of SA-HD, then go them.

until then, you are talking out of your butt.

Yup your right. It looks like the writers over at PhoneArena need to have a little better communication or at least have one person that approves the stories before they are published, so they already know what is already out there and what isn't. This is a prime example of piss poor communication.

Apple was not very popular at all when they came out with the iPod. It was just much better than anything else available.

Apple also wasn't popular when they started selling pc's

Well with the quality & innovation of the Samsung Galaxy line of phones, naturally it will sell VERY well. The Samsung Galaxy S II is an incredible phone. This makes me imagine what the Samsung Galaxy S III will be like, because the Samsung Galaxy S II was leaps & bounds better than the Samsung Galaxy S. Samsung plain & simple makes a GREAT product, HANDS DOWN!

Agree with most of your post except innovation. What example can you give of Samsung innovating.



I have lots of them copying

Do the words SUPER AMOLED PLUS\HD even strike a chord in your diluted partially dissolved remnant of your brain?

Or is it the fact that they managed to pack the fastest and most powerful smartphone in mid 2011 inside a 4.3 inch screened device, an 8MP camera - and make it thinner than the iPhone 4 in every area except that said camera lens and the chin on the bottom (for stability)?

Or maybe it's their unique touch-wiz experience on their phone?

But no, of course not. /Super Amoled Sarcasm.

The Super AMOLED, the Super AMOLED +, & the Super AMOLED HD screens. Apple didn't innovate the display with the Retina display, that was LG my good man. Also the best dual-core chip in the world is the Samsung Exynos. You know the dual-core from the iPhone 4S is from Samsung right? Also their design, making excellent, durable, & thin devices. I mean what did Samsung copy & from who? Please don't say Apple because Apple copies everyone. Can you say the LG Prada? & if they can't copy then they buy so they can keep up with Android. Can you say Siri?

no he can't help himself.... he is a negative being. Can't be happy for anyone. I have a mission to get everyone to boycott TACO until he learns to be cooperative. If no one responds to him he'll get lonely and behave better. He needs to be left alone and put in the corner. So please peeps, don't respond to taco AT ALL!

On a personal note, 30 million phones sold? Holy SH*T! Way to go Samsung!!!

Higher specs don't make innovation. I don't know about the display. Did Samsung actually develop the super amoled technology? If so that can be called innovation.

Bigger screen or faster processor isn't innovation and they don't make android so that would not be innovation either.

What did APPLE innovate with the iphone - a rectangle-shaped with a button on the lower portion of the screen?
MMS?
Screen quality?
Antennagate?
Cut and paste?
itunes - maybe it was itunes?
I tell you, APPLE may not innovate, but they do market it that way and people fall for it....

Hardware
Screen, nand, memory, SoC

Technology
They do hold a ton of wireless and power management patents. Also that antennae switching patent that apple is now using on iphone 4s

personal computer

graphic display on pc with mouse

ipod still dominates mp3 player industry

iPhone - changed the smartphone forever

ipad



Now I already know all the comebacks Apple didn't invent it or took it from someone etc. Fact is no one invents a product all by themselves. Everyone takes something from previous generations and works in collaboration with others.

Fact is Apple had the vision and brought a finished product to market. Heck there was no tablet market before Apple even though there were tablets.

Yes, they did develop the Super Amoled + tech. They also license ARM processor tech and turn out the Exynos processors, which are generally faster than the competition.

The only part of TouchWIZ that is in any way iPhone-like is the app tray, which looks like iOS main screen a bit. Otherwise, totally different. (And with WinMo, unuseable. But that's a different story)

Correction - that antenna switching patent that Apple is now stealing without license.

Apple actually stole the iphone name. Forget about the actual product, they couldn't find a different name. WOW!!

Anyway's are you the long lost illegitimate son of Jobs? There were a few rumors going around regarding this.

So Apple's innovation is to.. expand existing markets? Because there was a MP3 player market before the iPod. A PC market before the Apple 1. A slate market before the iPad. Etc etc.

So Apple - thanks to it's unique status as the most popular consumer electronics company in the world - thanks to countless loyal customers who do nothing but buy Apple products regardless of price or quality - is "innovative" because it sells its products in EXISTING markets - and because of its unique status as the most popular consumer electronics company in the world - thanks to countless loyal customers who do nothing but buy Apple products regardless of price or quality - these EXISTING markets suddenly greatly expand.

Wow.

That's not innovation taco. It's the furthest thing from it, in fact. It's good old marketing and customer deception. It's been there since the invention of money. Apple just does it better. That's all.

Again, your ignorance is insulting to the other members of this site. Xerox PARC Star, Alto sounds familiar?

Are you going to say now Xerox also stole from Apple?

"Well, Steve, I think there’s more than one way of looking at it. I think it’s more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and I broke into his house to steal the TV set and found out that you had already stolen it."

No. Apple developed Super AMOLED. When Jobs was sleeping, Samsung's Lee Jae-yong stole the display under the bed of Jobs and put that into Galaxy. I saw that personally. I told Jobs to call the police. Stupid thing, there was no connection in the iPhone. He was holding it wrong.
