Here's how Samsung never copies Apple... Not
posted by Victor H. / Sep 29, 2011, 4:46 AM
ongoing legal battles between Samsung and Apple have allegations flying around like dishes in a family fight, but most of end customers barely even care about who borrowed what from whom, but rather focus on the product.
That might not be the right thing to do, but it's inevitable with an endless legal saga. An entertaining (yet true) collection of images hit the nets recently and it's probably the best illustration on the copycat case we've seen so far.
Interestingly, it reveals that Samsung has even overlooked the fact that it's got iOS app images in its retail stores. The Safari and App Store icons appear on the background of what one would think should be only Android apps. But there's a couple of more images to prove the point, if you don't get it.
Do you think that's enough to conclude that Samsung is indeed "slavishly" copying from Apple and how important you feel the issue is? Check out the whole set of images on the right.

Samsung thinks innovative. Apple may be revolutionary at some points but obviously, they're not the most productive by the end of the year. They have this very narrow range of crapple products and let their iSheep worship it.

This is serious; Samsung has employed more than 200 people worldwide to check and comment on technology and mobile related websites. It is all part of their campaign to become #1. This is true, believe me, I worked in this company and I know their strategies.

that's good thing, it means that they collect feedback from us. 200 people doesn't sound accurate tho. and if you didn't notice already, there's something called community management. they collect feedback, shares ideas, inform the updates and etc.

@onlnon. And how can a company who simply waits and copies the next move of another become number one? Lol. Samsung will not be number one. A copycat would always be a step behind :) Apple innovates, and Samsung imitates Apple's innovations. So how can Samsung lead when it only follows someone else's ideas?

Apple should learn from Microsoft, how to deal with patents and other such stuff. Now almost everyone has to pay Microsoft for its intellectual property claims over Android.

Dell has similar USB plug designs for their Streak range:

iOS 5 going to be the Best Mobile OS to Date! Apple has recently announced the new iOS 5, The biggest update to their mobile phone OS since the iPhone was launched back in 2007. So Big, infact, that Apple decided to bypass the iPhone 5 launch this year round. What the iOS 5 bring that the iOS didn’t already have. People loved the iOS for its fluidity and ease of use, its beautiful and clean interface and the simplicity of performing actions to utilize and exploit the abilities the device it was on. The huge list of useful and eye pleasing applications which were designed to work within the means of the OS and worked on the same basic principle, doing simple things easily and simplifying difficult things. But not everyone feels like this. Especially those who take pride in their endeavors to defame the fruit companies products, with their basic set of questions in place. Why does the structure have to be so closed? Why are we not allowed to do things that prior devices allowed us to do? Bluetooth file transfer- File management, Adobe Flash based browsing, even setting a custom ringtone. The fact of the matter is, Apple saw that these things were slowing down the Operating Systems usage which in turn deteriorated the whole device. For example, Bluetooth file transfer was the main reason due to which, in 2005, over 3 million Nokia phones got infected with a virus which would delete important files from the Symbian structure ending basic phone use. Adobe flash is the heaviest video plugin ever made ( Adobe’s CEO confirms this) it is heavy on the processor , ram and extremely heavy on battery. Apple saw that by disabling Flash for video within Internet browsing, the overall battery life of device increased considerably. That being said, the user always should to have the choice to make the decision for himself. Adobe flash is allowed in the Application structure and a large number of apps are made with flash. Apple could have enabled Flash for a user to decide. But , in their defense it is easier to ignore a couple of 1000 people complaining about Flash – than a few million complaining about bad battery. Apple knows and is sure of one thing and one thing only, if they say their device does something, it does it. They don’t care about anything else and especially those things that they don’t promise or talk about. With the new iOS 5 , Apple brings about a large number of change in the Operating Systems use and the way you use your iDevice in a day to day basis. Apple has made these improvements not only due to a large number of demands, But also to take on the competition head first. The iOS 5 adds a huge chunk of things that were missing from the iOS over 200 to be precise. It also adds a whole list of new and innovative aspects to the already popular OS. Here are some of the most notable things.

Once the next iphone comes I won't see this site up until the next release. Donkeys like you will spend hours daily on such sites, searching for ways to hurt people :( and their personal opinions;(. You will never find your perfect phone Mr.remixfa.

Well I can's say that I hate my iPhone to be fair - but when one looks @ Android - and sees what the iPhone COULD have been - one truly starts to loath Apple. The primary reason I check Cydia every morning is the hope of finding a Fuly functional Android 3.x+ boot project. I want Android-leveled customization. Not an iPhone with a few neat tweaks and themes.

Why is Apple filed lawsuits against Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets only, does other companies their phones and tablets different form factors. May be Apple just wanted to banned Samsung Galaxy phone and tablets.

The reason apple is only suing samsung is because they are the only major threat to apple right now.

Oh, come on, what do you expect to see when you open a box containing a tablet ? A dragon, a clown ? This article is pathetic. I expected something else from phonearena. But seeing the trend is posting hamburger and sushi pics just to prove a phone's existence, i can't say i''m surprised about this article either.

I just got my Bionic and both that and the DX I bought in 2010 came out of the box exactly the same fashion, with the Moto boxes being gray not white but packaged the exact same way. Also bieng that Samsung makes Apple components it goes to show that both companies put out similar looking devices. But showing the pics of the completely different looking charging connectors was weak.

Samsung probably made Apple's adapter. Apart from the first image in the collection, all of that is complete bulls**t. I don't get it, the picture shows the packaging of the Galaxy Tab and the iPad? Is this a comparing or contrasting? I know they both have something in common: they're made by Samsung.
