    Damn, I thought you were exaggerating. The last feature they showed is basically HTC's Zoe mode too.

    Oh well, can't be too mad at it. They played some pretty snazzy music to make up for it.

    You do realize that LG patented eye tracking in 2009, and is in process of suing Samsung for infringement, right?

    Well why patent it and not use it until years later when other companies start using that idea

    Why would Samsung use a patented feature?

    Also, I have noticed that you seem to be really obsessed with Samsung.

    As a third note, the Optimus G Pro (that's what it's called) came out before the S4. So I don't see how it can be ripping the S4 off.

    Well Apple does the same thing and so do many other companies, its called screwing your competition and getting products banned, getting cash and ultimately causing them pain.

    If LG Optimus is cheaper by a lot, I might go with that instead. I like the pause and resume recording feature.

    I like the Notification LED within the "Home" button on the Pro that's sadly lacking on the Note.

    Head tracking and eye tracking are two different patents.

    LG announced these features before the S4 was announced.

    So if LG had patented these...why is Samsung using them?
    Samsung says its using its own technology...does that allow them to get away with using it?

    no, Samsung tracks you're whole head. So you really think a company as big as Samsung would just out right copy another patent exactly how LG did. That's why they go to court because all patents have minor differences, but might seem the same to the average consumer. But then again no matter what the patent is or no matter how it's exactly the same or not the same, if LG promised to pay you off with a heaping pile of money and you where the judge???????? Get my drift..

    No they don't. Smart stay and smart scroll track your eyes. That's how they work. Smart pause, or whatever it's called, uses a combination of the two.

    Because samsung is arrogant and sometimes it's cheaper to use it first and pay later.

    Of course it backfired. You didn't bother to do any actual research and instead just started trolling due to your love for all things Samsung. It's pathetic and makes you look like a fool. Just because Samsung has an 'idea' and talks about it the loudest does NOT mean they had the idea first, have a patent or even came up with the idea on their own.

    U dont have to "assume" I have a love for all Samsung products...My title wasnt meant to bash LG. I could have easily called it LG uses Samsung features, but dont get all jerky about it, just explain it to me
    I am excited for this phone and entitled to what I post...just relax guy don't take it offensively

    This video not withstanding, I did not view it. They all "borrow" from each other, but if you do not think that many of the things LG has is a blatant and not so subtle copy of Samsung you have not been paying attention. I remember when the LG Nitro came out and I went to check it out because it was one of the first LTE phones on ATT (I got the Skyrocket) and I could have swore I was using touchwiz. I mean it was not even subtle. If you were familiar with touchwiz, you would have known 100% how to use the LG. Do not even get me started on the optimus g pro and the Note 2...and the Note 2 was out well before the optimus g pro.

    Not trolling, just my opinion with some fact thrown in...
