    That's what CNN is saying about galaxy s6. What a crock of [inappropriate language edited by Moderator] . Galaxy phones do not look like iphones. Oh and when the iPhone 6 came out I thought it looked like the htc m 7 and m8 with the white lines on the back. Lmfao

    CNN is copying Fox news. It's why they are in the toilet in ratings.

    Without Apple, there is no Android. To deny that there are not similar elements between the two devices is ludicrous. For years, Android was running to catch with Apple and until very recently for Apple, it was litigate instead of innovate. Now, that it would seem that the paradigm has changed, it's easier to cry foul that some one is copying you rather than acknowledging that you have some work to do to catch up and listen more carefully to your users rather than telling them what they need and what is best as this would appear to be the patrician type approach of Apple.

    I've had 7 or 8 flagship Android phones from Samsung and Motorola over the last 3 years.

    Not once has anyone referred to my phone as an "Android" phone. Every single time someone
    asks me about my phone it's always one of the following:

    (1) "can I borrow your iPhone?" (S5)

    (2) "wow, is that the new big iPhone?" (my Note 3 and Note 4 get this question frequently)

    (3) "you use an iPhone but you also carry a Samsung tablet?" or "how come you don't use
    an iPad if you're using iPhones?
    (had my Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 at the time,
    neither one is a product of Apple, Inc.)

    Who cares if they did, Apple copied a ton of Android features. You do what you can to beat your competition. I'm glad they did, I've always loved apples build quality and hated everything else. Now, we have the best of both worlds.

    I've seen the S6 and it looks nothing like my iPhone 6 plus. I'm fed up with people saying that Samsung copied Apple. Look at all the things Apple has copied. Large screens, widgets, third party keyboards, control centre, notification panel, the health app.

    They copied Android wear and pebble with the Apple watch.

    CNN just repeats stuff they heard. The press was having a field day stacking the S6 on top of the iPhone 6 because the bottom edges are strikingly similar. The rest of the phone? Not so much.

    When facts don't fit your less than disingenuous narrative and become such a burden, it is convenient to ignore and pretend they don't exist.

    At what other angle other than looking straight on the bottom edge does the S6 look like the iPhone 6? Is it because they're rectangles? I suppose someone could confuse the pill shaped home button of the S6 with the circular button of the iPhone provided they had some severe astigmatism.

    In my mind, the similarities stop at the position of the headphone jack, USB port and speaker grill which is different as anyone can tell with two machined rows of holes. Anyone looking at the GS6 head on or from behind is not going to mistake it for an iPhone. Home button, bezels, and RFC placement are all different. It's easy to say someone copied you and ignore the features that were reluctantly.

    Yeah it definitely looks similar from the bottom. Noticed that day one. But I do not care. Ideas are always borrowed.

    I like that everyone is saying Samsung copied apple pay.... Samsung has a partnership with Authentec in 2012 to release finger print pay. Apple went ahead and bought Authentec and stopped the deal with Samsung. That wasn't even apples idea.

    Wow, I thought you were making that up... but you're absolutely correct! It's funny that this info isn't better known. I can't believe how many Apple bloggers have taken jabs at Samsung for Samsung Pay (*cough* Rene Ritchie *cough*).

    apple is truly innovative. There was only 25 letters before apple invented the "i". Without apple, there would be no macintoshes, no red delicious, no gala, or even fujis. The universe might not even exist without apple.,

    I don't agree this was a copy job. If you compare the construction quality as well as the speed, fluidity, and reliability of the software on both phones there's not really any similarities
