Regarding S-Air/S-Health... Each company builds its own apps..If u talk abt S-Apps..then you should even notice Nokia's Here Maps/Nokia's Windows Apps like Cinemaography and so which are exclusive to Nokia. Even my ipod has its Nike+ feature if you compare to S-Health!!

Not only did they copy tons of companies ideas but they rob the customers who believe there so called "innovations". Copying and fooling customers what a combination. Shame on you Samsung!

Build quality is so friggin' overrated. When almost everyone uses a case to protect their iPhones which is the king of build quality it becomes a moot point.

Now check your facts regarding things like the fingerprint scanner - Motorola Atrix handsets contained this fingerprit swipe apporximately two years ago, this is not new tech developed by apple, it is as free to be used by samsung as it is by Apple, if you have been duped into believing this was an Apple developed idea then that is unfortunate.

Samsung crosses all of its limits of copying. From HTC's Sense UI to upcoming rumoured TouchWiz UI, then Sony's Waterproof to its s4 Active series to 5s 64 bit arch which it released couple of weeks later to now fingerprint scanner in its 5s. They call it innovation I call it Duplication! Samsung doesn't have even a single piece of innovation in its flagship phones!!!

Samsung Fanboys surely waiting for your reply!
