Anonymous, 18 Jul 2012First of all, that's not the point where it makes. Second, Sams... moreThat's NOT the point? What IS the point then? You said Samsung's phones have been successful because they resemble the iPhone (though I fail to see ANY form of resemblance between the SGS III and the iPhone), which would imply that ANY phone that looks like the iPhone should have considerable success. So do explain then, why didn't that happen with the numerous iPhone clones, when they look JUST like an iPhone?

The next time you decide on responding to a post, do try and present a reasonable and LOGICAL argument. Back it up with facts. Don't come back with childish stuff like "You're ignorant because you don't agree with what I say" or "Samsung copies Apple because I SAY it copies Apple." Otherwise, you end up looking ignorant yourself.

Apple copied android in many ways in IOS 5 &6 .

every car maker would want to build a car that pretends to be a Mercedes but Mercedes don't fuss over it cos they know what is under their hood. Apple fusses cos under their hood, they know Samsung beats them yet for a much lower price! so hail Samsung, they rock...

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2012First of all, that's not the point where it makes. Second, Sams... moreFirst. Nice to know your opinions become facts automatically only because you say so. Give us even a single fact to support your claim.

Second. If you call 'ignorant' to anyone that disagrees with your point of view, life will be tough for you. Set your mind open and learn to listen before screaming "ignorant" like a parrot.

Third. That was exactly the point of your claim. Samsung products are NOT selling because they are "iPhone/iPad lookalike" ones. You have plenty of those exact mockups stuck in the shelves.

Fourth. Samsung poducts are bought because they offer extremely superior functionality. Even die hard Samsung fanboys are critics of their aesthetics, and it's neither because "it looks like an iPhone" nor even because "it has a great design" that they buy it.

Fifth. Apple is the one who has been ripping off Xerox (personal computers), UNIX (OSX/iOS), Palm- Blackberry-LG (smartphone features and LG Prada's design) and even Microsoft (with the tablet concept/implementation).

However, all you could come up with was to call me an ignorant. Because, maybe, you were dumbfounded and couldn't find anything to say. You know, in a court of law, your "argument" would've been instantly chucked out the door. Because you haven't got any.

Let us use your own logic. According to you, Samsung's success is entirely due to its resemblance to an iPhone (however hard I try, though, I can't find any between the iPhone and the SGSIII), right? So, by your own logic, any phone that looks like an iPhone should be successful, right? Didn't see that happening to the numerous China-made iPhone clones, though, which look EXACTLY like the iPhone. Why is that? Do, please, answer me, o unwise and illogical one. Why does an iPhone-resembling Samsung sell and NOT a cheap iPhone-replica from China?

Eddie Quist, 18 Jul 2012Know those numerous made-in-China iPhone clones that look EXACTL... moreFirst of all, that's not the point where it makes.
Second, Samsung success thanks to the look alike Iphone clones and tablet.

Don't be ignorant please, those are the facts.
So be on-topic please, don't give red herrings.
