    Lots of rumors have been heard abt the iP8. What do you think that the iP8 rumors will resembles S8. Ex: amoled & curve screen, usb type C could be used to replace apple's usb, home button will dissapear but embedded in the screen itself. Borderless screen, S8 will be released soon. And it has all these characters. Is iphone going to follow its rival S8? Tell me what you think.

    Well, hypothetically speaking, when did Apple and Samsung start working on those particular versions?

    As secretive as Apple is, "Copying" seems far fetched with Apple. If that's your argument, then how is it Samsung follows suit to most of Apple's changes after the fact? I don't believe Apple is copying anyone.

    Your opinion could be right. The only thing is that S8 will be released at least 8 months before the iP8, the first one that released with the new design will be seen as the starter. Curved screen and amoled have been used by samsung in their previous editions, larger size screen also. I don't really care, for me iphone will never look the same even with these similarities. And all other brands are just following apple or samsung in design.

    I couldn't care what it looks like. It's all about software. It always has been.

    You're definitely in the minority then, if you don't care about the hardware at all.

    I care about hardware, I just don't care what it looks like.

    However, software is #1. Without good software, hardware is meaningless.

    Not quite true when one manufacturer knows way ahead of time what the other one is going to do since they are supplying parts to the others phone. Besides which Samsung obviously copied LG since the LG6 comes out before the S8.

    I understand what it could be seen like, it just doesn't make something one way or another based on what it seems like (even though that's what many end up going by despite reality). That said, it sounds like we are talking about 6 months at most, if not less (as opposed to at least 8 months).

    If we were to sit down an design phones based on technology currently available we'd get a lot of similar designs with copying each other. Plus it only makes sense for these companies to follow trends and try to improve on each other's designs.

    Fingerprint sensor is a good example. To the best of my knowledge the Motorola Atrix was the first consumer smart phone with one. Years later Apple implemented it and vastly improved it. Now most manufacturers have it because it's what consumers want and expect.

    Samsung used to be notorious (to a fault ) of copying designs from other manufacturers. They would also throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. But now they have their own thing for the most part and if Apple borrows a GOOD design of theirs and implements it better, well we all benefit and I'm all for it.
