Well -enough guys!!!
Let the law take its own suite. But how many phones do we know that they have the same fitures. Apple must just show us their creativity ( Come up with something new) and pay their staff well so that they cannot sell the Quote to likes of Samsung.

Any how - Apple rocks!! its the best...

aodxxl, 01 Nov 2011Apple doesnt stand a chance againts samsung. Samsung is much muc... moreapple don't stand a chance against samsung, are you having a bubble [laugh], samsung have done very little in the mobile space for the last 10 years, those who rememeber the d500 / d600 series of 2004 / 2005, will know it was motorola who actaully got the ball rolling with beautiful asethetics. Samsung handsets, have always had poor battery life, on slide phones, major issues with ribbons, white screens and charging blocks etc... the list could goes on.

for all the techno power samsung has in it's artelliry [excuse the spelling], they should of been market leader, years ago.

not being funny, but all apple do, is connect the dots - and a darn good job they do, do. This what true innovation is about.. being able to see the big picutre in the scheme of things.

for instance, i can sit here today and can think of how windows phone 7, could be put to great use.

on a closing note, phone's, computer's, memory's, tv's - ring a bell - haven't samsung manufactured for almost 20 years.

You can see the Nokia E6 as an example, that has even more PPI than the iPhone display and even smaller screen. Also, Apple doesn't build the iPhone screen, it's LG that does...

The first smartphone OS was Windows CE by Microsoft back in end 2001/early 2002, which MSN, office, internet, phone and other program to install into the device(now they call it Apps and market them as a new idea).

1st OS to run on a tablet is also created by Microsoft(Windows XP tablet), with touchscreen and keyboard back in 2002.......

Touchscreen is not a new technology, the only these new generation of smartphone manufacturer does was just to squeeze the component into smaller size and push it out on the market.

This whole war is actually just a joke costing millions...they should just redirect the money to research and development.

Btw HTC was the OEM manufacturer for a lot of old smartphone devices including for brand like Sony, Samsung, HP, Toshiba, o2...etc and they used to market their own phone under the name of Dopod.....

That's why I will not post any judgement about the Galaxy Nexus or the iphone 4s until I have tried them both. Let's be honest, this is a really exciting time for smartphone fans and we should be enjoying the fruits of the competition between manufacturers :-)

The iPhone was in development long before the Prada was shown, unless you think it only takes a few months to create something like the iPhone which is impossible.

[deleted post]Also m8 I dont say Apple cant lie but lets face the facts they took something that had no future and turn it into the future ...Apple maybe on something but they are sure not lieing on 1 fact which is crucial and that is they make better/smooter and nicer produces and they are thinked not just oooo samsung has 1280x1080 we got to make a new phone who has 1320x1120 res...They dont make huge res with even huger screen cuz thats easy...They make smaller easy to use and thinked res screens yeah ofc at some point iphone 4/4s res will be overcome by competition but next iPhone will be surely better then what the competition will have at that point and it will make competition work for another 2 years to beat it...Samsung dont get it how come they make parts but cant beat there own creation when used by others...simple smarter ppl

All one can do is try not to stoop to the same levels. I will try and continue to focus on the positives. Hopefully others will too.

When an alternative smartphone maunfacturer adds a feature to a device, the first thing people like you say is "Boring, Apple invented that years ago".
So exactly who is engaging in the loser talk?
It's going to get to the point when people like you will be claiming Apple invented the earth!!!
