well, apple doesnt own the "white". white is trendy, so why not to release this phone in this color?
i enjoy my black sgs2 and wouldnt buy a white phone anyways, but i dont see any copy here. the first iphone was black and wasnt a copy from other black phones out before 2007.

Apple might not own the color white, but they might just sue for it.

Nokia has been making all white phones for years before apple made an all white phone which they couldn't even get that right. Miz your a moron!

What lol? I'm just saying, Samsung surely isn't copying Apple here. I mean first the UI of the Galaxy S looks like the iPhone's UI, but NOW they're copying designs now lol? No wonder Apple's suing the pants off them.

The fascinate comes in white, looks, feels or operates nothing like the iphone, maybe they were copying their old design.

GS2 will rock in any colour. Its the hardware that keeps beating other phones. Iphone lovers grow up man its not even close to GS2.

iPhone 4 owner here, and I drool over the Galaxy SII (black OR white don't care). Wishing I could just pay my carrier $200-$400 flat rate a year for the privilege of trading in my phone for the latest every month.

I know what you mean man! Best Buy offers that buy back program that the will buy back newly purchased electronics that are under 2 years old, so maybe that will work, but you may have to buy the phone out right, but since they will buy it back for the fair market value, when it comes time that you want to upgrade you will only be looking at $100-$200.

Well it already looks like the iPhone and they made the UI the most similar to the iPhone out of any android I've seen. Now it comes in black and white just like the iPhone. Blatant copying.
15. Heatfan316 (unregistered)
And your a blatant copy of the Miz

apple doesn't own the color white you know,
grow up, is swiping across screens a similar UI, oh wait..... didn't apple copy the LG prada's UI, yes they did.
apple only innovated with multi-touch nothing else.
17. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Lmao at Apple copying the prada. What are you smoking. Any reasonable person can see that Samsung is copying including the courts.
18. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
i know samsung is copying. but what pisses me off is that apple fanboys absolutely deny that apple is copying too (like notification centre).
and no need to LMAO at the LG prada, if you see, it was the first with a capacative screen, and the first to use swiping actions in their UI. luckily for apple, LG has morals, unlike apple.

here is another failed kid... just like mIZ........ i laUGH at your post ALL the time.............
14. JohnDroid (unregistered)
you know, I'm a major android fan... that being said, i think a lot of apple's current lawsuits are bs.... but damn samsung, you deserve a lawsuit for this one,,,, it's an awesome phone, i'll probably buy one, but it looks like a damn iPhone!
22. notreally (unregistered)
its just a color........... apple doesnt own the color white sorry......
26. JohnDroid (unregistered)
I am not talking about the color... first off, i despise iPhone, i just didn't feel like getting flamed by that moron miz. but black white pink green, whatever color, the SGS2 design is a blatant iPhone copy, in design only, i mean think about it, the normal person would think you had an iPhone if they saw the sgs2 in your hands,,,, ( if it was off, i realize once the soft touch buttons light up its different... ) but let us android users not be as blind as the iSheep.... the phone looks just like an iPhone, the main difference will be once they are turned on, it'll be like a ford focus (iPhone) vs. a bugatti veyron ( sgs2) haha
19. yumyum (unregistered)
Who cares if they are copying each other, we don't benefit from any lawsuits. If you like Apple iPhones, Android OS devices, etc then good for you. The only thing we should complain about is if you do own any devices and it breaks or fails on you then complain all you want.
I owned both iPhones and Android OS devices and to me they all do the same. Call, text, email, play games, watch movies, web, etc. All seems fine and the same to me.

ill take 1 in any color

Apple made the white phones popular... they released the white iphone and sold them in bunches. Apple doesnt invent but makes what ever is in the market and makes it popular... Samsung and HTC wich are being sued by Apple have released white phones that Apple makes popular... Thats why Motorola doesnt get sued.. they do their own thing ..for better or worse....
spelled check doned from my almighty Drod X
29. Ivan6479 (Posts: 243; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
So Apple made white phone popular huh? Lol Man what is with you Apple fans. You all have your heads so far up Apple's you know what that all you seem to see is Apple. BlackBerry and Nokia had white phones which were popular way before Apple came into the picture. I think it's freaking hilarious that Apple fans swear Apple did everything first. I mean seriously get over yourselves and pull your head out of Apple's you know what so you can see the light.
I must admit that Apple's number one down fall has to be that they are spreading themselves too thin by focusing on both hardware and software, whereas Android is sticking to what they do best and are joining with the pros to do the rest. After all what does Apple know about making phones compared to the other companies that have been making them for years before Apple came on the scene. That's why Apple keeps making stupid mistakes just as they did with the iPhone 4 where it had connection issues it you held it a certain way.
Oh and how can people honestly say that Android OS is just like iOS? Last time I checked you can't customize your home screens on iOS as you can with Android and iOS doesn't offer widgets like Android does either.
Those poor Apple fans are so lost. They are trying to compare their Fiero kit car (iPhone) to Samsung's Ferrari (Galaxy S2). Although they may look similar the way the perform is day and night.
31. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
first of all.. I am pretty sure nokia made mistake when they first started in the phone business.. so Apple is allowed to make some itself.... second...Apple was not the first ok to bring the wihit phones out... read correctly. they made them popular... no one had a whiteblackberry or a nokia... before Apple.. soo.. again ..wrong again... Apple did invent anything just made it better.... is hard to invent anything nowdays,.. even for Samsung... and finally your car comparisson was weaker than your prevous statements as first.. the Galaxy S2 is not a Ferrari... is a sports car..(for the exynos chip) and Apple is a more like a Maxima.... ther Maxima was not the best car but it was pretty popular lately.... and you now why... because the Maxima is more convenient than a Sports car. so it sells more...lets called a ferrari so you can feel batter.. A Maxiam is could be a family car a relieable car and other uses.. a "Ferrari" well only single rich people will buy the car or people that having speed is a concern.... so not always the best car sells more... now back to phones... Apple iphones sell.. for their marketing... they spend milliosn marketing as opposed Amdroid that uses word of mouth.... thank you for playing but your times has run out... dont forget to tip your waiter...

Wow you are too funny!! First and foremost, you should work on your spelling when trying make a compelling argument, because it was extremely hard to take you seriously when you were making the most juvenile spelling mistakes. All I could do was laugh through your whole post!!
As for Apple making the color white popular that is just freaking hilarious. I knew plenty of people that had white phones way before Apple was around, but once again like I stated before many of these Apple fans have had their heads so far up Apple's you know what that they swear Apple made white popular. Lol Get your head out of the clouds and look at the facts.
Lastly my comparison was much more accurate then yours because you were looking at 2 very different vehicles that are not even in the same class. I'm not sure how young you are, but you must be very young because if you have ever seen a kit car before you would know that they look a lot like the real thing, but they are far from it. So my analogy was much more accurate seeing how they are both 2 seated sports cars, which we can see that one is clearly much better then the other. Also I never mentioned anything about prices of the cars I was simply just comparing the performance of the two vehicles. Now get off of the computer already and go read a dictionary so you can learn how to spell and be sure not to miss out on anymore school when school gets back into session. Trust me it will only benefit you. ;)

jajaa dont worry about my spelling.. worry about getting your facts straight first... I am not an isheep first of all... i dont own an iphone... second I am not in high school, if you determined that by the way i write..well.. u just missed the bell so go back to 1st grade. so you knew a couple of people that has a white blackberry ..congrats.. as they were rare species... you are ignorant to assumed that only people that have an iphone can speak in favor of Apple.. we all have an opinion you know... but anyhow.. you have an opinion.. and guess what i have mine... and i dont buy that spelling better may benefit me.. as i didnt benefit you... we are in in PA expressing opinions about the same topic.. i say were are even... and that is not in the dictionary....
36. Ivan6479 (Posts: 243; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
First off I never said you owned an iPhone, but you sticking up for them clearly makes you a fan and seeing how the iPhone 5 is on your wish list then you are undoubtedly an isheep. It appears they the millions they spent on marketing as you mentioned earlier is working on young people like yourself that can't seem to think for themselves. See Android on the other hand do spend less money on marketing depend more on the word of mouth as you also mentioned earlier because their phones speak for themselves. I can understand you maybe having a sour taste in your mouth from Androids especially after owning the Motorola Droid X, but don't be hater and stay loyal to Android and you will see who will be on top. ;)

thank you ..again.. for seeing my profile.. i feel bad not checking yours... I apologise.. not being sarcastic.. ok..is sincere...let me star by saying that Samsung wis banking on the popularity of the sucess of the white iphone 4 to release a white devise as well..if you hold from a distance both phone one can clearly be confused ... and if we are dumb for being like that..well we are not alone..but you got to admit Samsung is taking a page out of Apple way out making products.. nothing wrong with that.. but at least admitted..and finally.. the Droid X is a wonderful phone. the big size catches attention..is different from the iphone.. and the ladies love the size..it does what i want it to do..I am a moto fan before i am Apple. but moto is playing with my feelings but not relesing the Bionic.. so since the iphone will be 4' inches . will give them a try... most of my friends have the iphone so why not give them a try.. they seem happy with their device.. Finally Ivan it was a pleasure debating .. will work on my spelling.. take care and no hard feelings,... and leave Taco alone.. man.. all you do is make me hungry and i am on my mid July diet..lol..

It's not just the white color. They made the phone look physically the same and sell it in the same colors as Apple and made their UI look similar. If you can't admit Samsungs phones look like an iPhone then you're not honest with yourself.
34. Ivan6479 (Posts: 243; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Listen taco. LOL (Honestly who pics a name like that!) I never said I didn't think they look similar. I gave an analogy of two cars that look very similar for a reason because yes they both look very similar, but when it comes down to it, they both perform very differently. Which makes the GS2 the better of the 2. :)
