I hope force touch isn't everywhere. I don't want fatter and heavier phones to include a feature I will barely use.

HAHA, Chinese people always loved shiny things, not because of Apple. And please don't call it 3D Touch. OK, then only in relation with iPhones. But the thechnology is called Forcetouch, so please call it on it's name. Anyways Apple changed the name just because some Android manufacturers used the technology (Honor 7) before them and then they couldn't say "revolutionary"... :DD

Literally every single one of those things were done by others first. It's not that Apple is influential, it's that they are influenced. They take the ideas of others, and rely on the herd to claim that it was Apple's idea.
