DOJ suggests Supreme Court remand Apple v. Samsung back to District Court

Samsung then requested that the Supreme Court look into the part of the decision related to design patents. Samsung's argument was that the amount of the award related to design patents was based on the entire sales generated by a product, even if the patent covered only one component on the device. While the Supreme Court has agreed to look into this issue, the DOJ said in its brief that it isn't clear whether Samsung has provided enough evidence to back up its argument. As a result, it recommends that the Supreme Court remand the case back to District Court to see if a new trial is called for.
Late last year, Samsung paid Apple the $548 million awarded by the appeals court with the promise that Apple would reimburse Samsung if the court changed the amount. And the beat goes on.

I'm guessing they are talking about internal design, because Galaxy s7 and s7 edge (or every other samsung recent phone I have seen) are nothing like that flat, and boring iPhone design with huge bezels

No, the iphone is ergonomically designed without the gimmick edge screen or the cheap glass.

It wasn't "cheap glass design" when apple used it in the iphone 4, and there's no way huge bezels can be considered an ergonomic feature. Both phones are probably better on a case anyway but one of them handles the space better with higher screen to body size ratio and better battery life while the other sacrifices everything (including headphone jack) to be stupidly thin, even then the camera still protrudes in a notorious way.

mxy, why do you do this? provoke fanboys..? edge screen does make the s6 and s7 look absolutely awesome - and that was it's intent. The features for the edge screen are a bit gimmicky - but that's just an afterthought on samsungs behalf as an attempt to add value on top of the edged screen for the extra $100 that you paid. Edge screen does make the device look much more modern than the rest of the "flat" screen devices... it made the new iphone to look outdated. Gimmick or not, we all like nicely designed devices - saying that the edge is a gimmick is the same as saying space grey or silver color is a gimmick - it's just a design choice, and as far as devices go - a really nice one....

Only because they like to pick fights. I just give them the same treatment. I don't care for the Edge that much but I do wish Samsung would get rid of the slight curve of the screen. I'm waiting to see what the Note 6 brings to the table.

In an article about an android oem vs. Apple in court people actually have the nerve to comment about Android vs. Apple....crazy/. They are comments on an internet website. That's it. Anyone who takes it more seriously than that probably is the one who needs to get a grip.

I for one find these edge models to be outstandingly beautiful, and give credit to Samsung for pushing the envelope. On the iphone ergonomic front, the smooth rounded sides, and the lone button at the bottom make for a great feel, and handling. The iphone does look good, but boring and dated compared to the Edge's design.
