    This thread is a blatant rip-off of the many other threads where this is already being discussed. :(

    Well its not exactly the same (I have to look twice to see which phone is which). One has smaller and more holes than the other, the antenna bands are turned and the mic location is different. Not the same.

    Look lets face it Samsung is always going to try and match what Apple does in the terms of style that's just how they roll. The good news is iPhone runs iOS and that's something Samsung will never have. Samsung likes iPhone and they want one, this is the best they could do.

    They all copy each other.

    Remember, the Iphone+ size is a direct response to the Note....

    Precisely, one can't say that Apple always copies Samsung or vice versa. It's very clear that they influence each other heavily.

    In regard to the question about the rounded edges--Samsung incorporated that in earlier smartphones. They also came out with big screened smartphones years before Apple and Steve Jobs even poked fun at them at the time.

    Likewise, its pretty clear that "Samsung Pay" is in response to "Apple Pay".

    You can go back and forth for ages. Neither side can claim that they were the first in all innovations. I don't understand how the fanboys always seem to see only one side of things.

    Sure it's not 'exactly' the same but come on folks, that's a blatant copy of the iPhone 6. Why do Samsung do this? There's really no need.

    Agreed. But I don't think people are necessarily questioning the "rounded edges" because that could explain any phone, but it's more of it identically resembling the iPhone 6/6plus.

    One a different note, I wonder if there will be any bend videos for Sammy's new thin and light? ;)

    They took the design of the iPhone and modified it just enough to avoid patent infringement.
