    But the antenna lines now cause some of the people that rock their iPhone naked to buy cases if they are too hateful of them. If they buy Apple cases, then that's a win for them. I think Jonny knew what he was doing... ;)

    How is having a god awfully large camera lense better than the relatively smaller iPhone 6 camera?

    Placing the lense in the top centre of the phone is a very "Samsung" thing to do.....

    Without antenna bands, I assume reception is pretty bad. Unless of course, that is, *shudder*, plastic.

    Looks nice. The camera in the corner has always bothered me with the look of the iPhone. Putting in the middle makes the it all symettrical

    All I can think of when looking at those photos / renders is iPhone 6 rip off. Not a very original design.

    Yup. I think Samsung has been dethroned as the copy king.

    with over 2 billion potential customers in China and India alone, they don't need to do business elsewhere.

    Wow talk about ripping off the competition. And HTC One has thinner antenna lines than iPhone 6 so meizu didn't beat Apple to anything.

    Wow...just went to the Meizu website--it's even an almost exact copy of the Apple website design and layout. No shame I guess.

    What did Samsung copy? If you mean the S6 looking like the iPhone 6 then yes the bottom of it is similar but other than that I don't see it. If you look at the back of both the HTC M7 and the iPhone 6 then I think it is clear where apple got their design for the antenna lines.

    The antenna lines that the iPhone 5 already had before the HTC M7 was even announced?

    I agree with you. I was speaking more to the fact that Samsung shouldn't be labeled as such anymore when you have other makers copying blatantly.

    There's a few reasons why this thought process is completely wrong.

    Oh I don't know, they are only little cars. Lol

    I was at Goodwood Festival of speed at the weekend stroking Koenigsegg's and Pagani's, I got to sit in a McLaren 650S even.. I can dream. Great day out for petrol heads.

    I stood there watching a very old classic open top Mercedes single seat race car and an original Mercedes Gullwing revving to warm up for about 10 minutes, and I stood about a foot from a track where cars like the new Ferrari FXXK burnt rubber! That was Loud!
