    Angry Are you upset that Apple Copied the iconic M7/M8 look for the iPhone 6?

    I cant believe this hasn't been discussed.. (if so it was dismissed too quick) Apple's next flagship is a flattened HTC One.

    I found only this patent filing from 2010, but didn't see anything potentially related from 2012 or later (roughly the timeframe for anything related to the antenna design on the M7). However, it should be noted that HTC might have some extra firepower if it comes to litigation:

    (Antennas were involved in the lawsuits from that linked article.)

    Apple never copies anyone. They are always first to do anything. I mean, they did invent the rectangle.

    Great finding. I recall Apple and HTC both settled their patent disputes and came to a agreement. Maybe this antenna positioning falls under this "resolution" from their agreement. UGH. Lost potential to sue Snapple.

    Personally, I really don't give a crap. Why would I? I would never buy an iPhone...I don't enjoy the OS as much as Android's.

    It looks like an ugly cousin to the M8. Apple doesn't innovate anymore, they are now following and trying to mitigate their constantly diminishing market share, so I'm not surprised or upset that they took design cues from HTC.

    my niece a long time apple sheep, switched to Team Android few days ago, she bought an S5, I tried to talk her into an M8 but she wanted a white phone so the S5 got the nod, apple is losing people everyday

    I'm not trying to bash them, just sharing the math. They do well as an OEM but made almost zero market share improvement as an OEM in the last year, and that's fighting against the rising tide of Android sweeping over them.

    It's going to be interesting to see them in about 5 years.

    That would have to be one of the ugliest phones I have ever seen. I have nothing against apple or their iphone, I just prefer android but that phone is **** ugly. It may have similarities to the m8 but It definitely hasn't got the style.

    Yet Apple sets record sales for the iPhone year after year, and the past year has been no different. 5s is the #1 selling smartphone in the U.S., as was the 5, 4s, 4, 3GS, etc. And more people switch from Android to iPhone than vice-versa.

    More iPhone buyers switching from Android this year than in 2012
    That's entirely irrelevant the initial statement I made. I'm not trying to engage in an Iphone vs Android argument with you. I simply stated that their share in the market is continually weakening. It's just a fact.

    This really isn't about Apple vs Android. It's about Samsung vs Apple vs HTC vs LG vs the rest...

    The only reason you think it is irrelevant is because it contradicts with you

    The market share us dropping because the make 2 phones, perioud.

    If you want to compare, stop comparing a phone to a whole operating system where every monkey and it's cousin puts some old crapy android on a kiosk $5 job.

    Want to compare iPhone 5, fine, compare it to phones releaced at the same time.

    The problem is everybody is unfairly comparing everything bundled together against 1 device. Including scrappy devices made by Joe blow to sell via girl scouts, or devices given away to people who open a free checking account.

    You don't hear people saying a Ferrari sucks compared to a Toyota Corrola or Honda civic sales wise. No you want to compare a Ferrari to a Lamborghini and Porsche. Not a Corrola, Prius, and Ford ranger

    That shell was not made by Apple, it was made by some random guy based off rumors from random people on the internet

    History of Apple's announcements compared to rumors should show just how close it will be, after all everybody said the iPhone 5 was going to be phablet size with expandable storage and a host of other features

    Why would anyone be upset? Like what you like and be happy with what you have.

    What on earth are you on about?? That's untrue and you didn't point out any contradiction at all. If you like Apple, great. I'm not trying to hurt your feelings. I just made a factual statement, with a source. Somehow, you made the leap to thinking that had something to do with phone bashing. I don't play those games.
