Cook said Apple "makes the best products on earth" funny the best product on earth does not have 4g, does not have an sd card slot and cant send files via bluetooth.

Apple Advocate: Samsung COPIED the iPhone completely! Me: So a Samsung Galaxy Series phone works just like an iPhone? AA: YES! Me: So I get the same experience with Samsung that I get with Apple? AA: No. Android sucks, Samsung phones are horrible to use! Me: So Apple's phones suck and are horrible to use too? AA: NO! Apple's phones are awesome. Me: But I thought you said that Samsung copied Apple's phones. How can that be, if they're identical as you say? AA: Uhhhh... Me: Do Apple phones have LTE? AA: No. You don't need LTE, 3G EVDO is good enough! Me: Do Apple phones have screens larger than 3.5 inches? AA: No. 3.5 inches is enough for anyone. Me: Does Apple offer a removable battery? AA: No. Removable batteries are terrible! Me: Is Android a comparable operating system to iOS? AA: No. Android SUCKS! Me: Does Apple make its phone with a plastic case and back? AA: No. It's all glass. Me: Does Apple make a phone with an AMOLED display? AA: No. Apple uses LCD, which is good enough. Me: So, basically, what you're saying is, other than the user experience, screen size, color, backplane, form factor, operating system, data speeds, look, feel and usability, the phones are exactly alike. AA: YES! SAMSUNG COPIED APPLE! Me: *shakes head*

Now you're comment has a good point, but it is quite stereotypical of Apple Users. I for one have had an iPhone since the 3 came out, but recently switched to Android. But besides the point, I have an iPad and Apple everything else. I am in no way biased towards one of the two companies. I may own more Apple products, but that is because the ones I do own have the functionality I feel is suitable for me. Most people I know that even care about the lawsuits are smart enough to read articles about it, and do not act extremely ignorant about who copied who, or functionality. This situation may happen with an arrogent little kid, but please do not stereotype every existing fan of Apple.

Where are the values gone when Apple copies?
