If swipe to capture isn't important, then why does Apple consider things like scroll bounce lawsuit worthy?

With the apps I think you misunderstand: there's 700,000 apps to pick on the iPhone, iPad has 250,000 specifically for it. Not subtracted from the original 700k, other than that accurate comparison.

Because other people also copy that feature. Apple also facilitated screen capture and now the majority of the phones have that, except that Samsung added the whole palm swipe thing to make it different.

But...Tilt to Zoom shows some nice innovation by Samsung vs pinch to zoom.

That cannot be denied.

They also have Tilt to Swipe.

Nice.....I'm still lmao that Apple is trying to claim Panorama camera feature on the iPhone 5 is the first ever on a phone.

My Droid X1 would like a word with Apple...and it was probably on phones before the Droid X1.

Swipe to unlock was just another way to unlock phones, which all phones had before the iPhone, yet Apple patented it, and sued for any implementation of touchscreen unlock, including a tap to unlock, arguing that a tap is just a zero length swipe.

Sorry, hon, but screen capture was around before the iPhone.

How to spot a galaxy III user. Just go to any public place and look for a person with their head pointed down, holding their giant phone with one hand and poking at it with the other. It is truly hilarious, you know right away. Just try it.

like as if i never see a man holding an iPhone with his left hand and touching it with his right..

how to spot an iPhone user:
Look for the biggest heads around.. you know they are big headed.. compensating for their relatively small screen..

Don't people realize that these are just gadgets that in 2 years will look to then current phones like a Moto Star Trac does to one of these today?

Hey idiot , do you remember phones before iPhone ? All the smartphone industry was created and developed by apple. If you like your cheap plastic with 12467 core processors and 18GB ram then just use it. Iphone always was fast and not need terabyte of ram to run normally unlike you geeky phone. What was samsung producing before iphone ? I think some people just have complexes concerning iphone and apple products !!!

I didn't say Apple invented it. They made it easier to use. As for the tilt to zoom, it's a neat trick but when your walking around reading a webpage article or looking at pictures your 2 fingers are already on the screen so you can just pinch to zoom instead of tilting the entire device.

Samsung didn't include some things but Apple supporters just blatantly lied.

Wow, don't dare make an ad that shows up the iPhone. I guess some people can't take a little criticism.

It just goes to show how imbecile an iFan could get. The maker of that rubbish obviously didn't even care to GOOGLE his phone's specs. Lol

Having read both of them, while the GS3 does have some that stretch what can be considered genuine features, the extra's added to the iPhones lists are just... sad...

Maps with fly-over? really?
Facetime? again, really?
Panorama/iMessage/GameCenter, AirPlay... not to mention the quad-core JOKE...

If someone had come up with a decent parody for the iPhone, I would have been impressed...

I have friends/family who own an iPhone (they arent fanatics like most are), but I could easily make a better list with what THEY like/use the iPhone for other over devices, this iFan made list is just sloppy

What's the maps-with flyovers thing?

Its the attempt at taking down street view and terrain view as well as 3d from Google Maps.

If you use Google Earth or MapsGL you can see what its "modeled" after (though not many area's are done up in 3d)...

EDIT: after some careful thought, with how BAD this was done, I almost think it was sabotage by an Android fan... thats the ONLY logical thing I can think of considering how bad it is!
