Samsung should not be supplying for its No 1 competitor Apple,when its Apple that makes Samsung stop being to succesful,Why?are Samsung copying the iPhone features is making there current phones not as popular than its older models,Even the future Note 5 as made Samsung remove its Best Selling Options,and loads will be turning there backs on the Note 5,thats why theres been no future court cases between these two

What stop Samsung from being more successful is the American Protectionism and the Chinese Racism. NOT APPLE. The last success of Apple was, bringing the size of the iphone to the modern reality. Apple have nothing to copy anymore. The Apple watch is pure s**t. Their next phone will only be a bit better with billion dollars for marketing them. If Samsung was American, do you think Apple would even exist ?

Think I keep Note 3 for now. Try 6s plus. If I feel I'm missing out can sell on eBay. I phones hold value better. Might even put a other Sim in Note 3 and duel wield phones like so many high rollers do. Any good carriers with good data plans? More budget oriented. No Verizon. Hate that carrier.

Ok am I the only one or just everyone knows that Apple do a lot of dirty jobs? To make it clear let me ask what is the screen protector used on iPhone 6/6 plus well everyone say yeah its gorilla glass but there's no proof for it and even if it is it's not the latest one or else they say the name. Anyway we all know that the soc in iPhone A8 was manufactured by various companies Samsung/TSMC but the thing is that the soc maded by different companies have different performance for example Samsung 14nm A9 soc will be better than TSMCs 16nm one so isn't this lying and misleading? It's not like the Samsung different camera sensors since their the same.

I didn't know that the bottom part of a phone decides whether the whole phone is copied or not. I agree that the bottom part is copied from iPhone 6 but the phone is more Similar to the Xperia Z3 with the glass back and metallic sides which are very much like the Xperia Z3.
