One of the most impressive new features that Apple introduced with the iPhone 6s is the new Live Photos functionality.
It's not that Live Photos is a brand new idea per se, but it is the way Apple has seamlessly integrated it in the stock camera experience that really makes a difference this time around.
Not a brand new idea, but this time, it's done rightWhat Live Photos does (if enabled) is create a short, fast-motion video of the moment right before you take a picture and you get a short preview of that Live Photo as you browse the images. You can also 3D touch a photo to play the full animation and you can even use it as a live wallpaper of sorts on your lock screen.
Take a look at how elegant it's all implemented in the video above.

Nothing's bad for Apple. Do you think the people who are going to be buying these know about HTC Zoe or Nokia's living images? Nope, just like everything else, this is the first time this feature will matter to them. That said, you do have to give credit to Apple in that whenever they do finally getting around to copying a feature like this, they implement it well and thoroughly. It makes sense to use in the way they implement it, and they go all the way and make it an integral part of the usage.

But to all the apple fans because apple gave it some "New" name, they will swear its another great revolutionary and innovative idea from their beloved tech giant. Apple fans have never heard or pay attention to tech that has been out already until Apple does it because it their minds, apple did it right.

Typical Victor giving Apple a pass on something that's already been "seamlessly integrated...", ala HTC

Plenty of Android apps offer the same ability.

Fingerprint scanner was done long time before apple did it on other phones. It was terrible, and no one ever used it again. Apple made it nice, safe and easy to use, That's what apple does 90% of time. It takes failed ideas from Android and others and make them work instead of being a failure. Please tell me who and how many people know about those apps and why they never became famous and mainstream? It was more a gimmick than being useful and it worked in those apps too. After you needed to convert it to video or gif for it to work anywhere else. This works out of the box anywhere and can be added to facebook too for which it has most of its use anyway.
