    Wouldn't that be crazy if Apple and Samsung joined forces to put together the ultimate phone. It would never happen because Apple would never do it. Just imagine an "iGalaxy" 4.5 inch Super Amoled screen with iPhone type software and look, but with androids best features that iPhone doesn't have. Throw in surround sound speakers, maybe something bose quality, improved 4G LTE chip that's smaller and better, the phone would be made out of some kind of stainless steal/aluminum finish. Also using the highest quality grade screen you can get, work on pushing for something even better than Gorilla glass. make the internals tough, make the phone shock resistant and only thing required is a really thin high grade rubber type case that fits it like a glove. Also work on a design that fits right in your hand like a dream even with a 4.5 inch screen. I think all the other phone companies would go under.

    It would be one very gimicky phone instead of something that works. Just a bunch of bells and whistles to sell a phone, but they know nobody would use.

    Coffee shops would go out of business because no one would have a reason to go down there and show off their latest purchases.

    Hipsters would probably own early 2000's Nokia phones.

    Not really, if they both tried to put together the very best it would be very expensive and it would be very good. Just like a car, if GM wanted to build some million dollar car that last forever they could.

    apple and samsung have already merged enough.

    their processors and graphics are about all we need. thanks but no thanks, we don't need cheap plastic phones and ****** AMOLED screens. yes thats right I said AMOLED screens are crap. Why? because they are. I tested out a few of them and hated them. the colors are wayyyyy to blown out to a point where it just looks fake. It seriously looked like I was looking at a piece of paper where a kid color sharpies the **** out of it as apposed to an actual screen.

    and can anyone tell me why the iPhone has the best graphics STILL after over 7 months of the iPad 2 being out when the freakin thing is made by samsung? why can't samsung just use that graphics chip?

    edit: and if this ever happens this would be when we know steve jobs ideas have run out and some ******* took over. steve jobs doesn't like crappy products, and I'm pretty sure the rest of the team gets that.

    Just because you think AMOLED are crap, doesn't make them crap. AMOLED saves more battery and makes phones thinner.

    iPhone doesn't have the best graphics.

    I would prefer Apple be Apple, Samsung be Samsung, and HTC be HTC. But if I were to choose one, I definitely would prefer HTC over Samsung's construction and design choices any day. At least HTC Sense is not a ripoff of iOS like Samsungs are.

    First sign of pure fantasy..."Bose quality".

    I love how people's "dream" phones would be built to last for 10 years, as if anyone would ever want a phone that's 10 years old, or even 5.

    Have you considered Apple merging with Kohler? Who wouldn't want a crapper with a reality distortion field?

    This would never pass the government in either Korea or the United States.

    Lawyers would loose so much money if this were to happen. Courtrooms would then be used for things that really matter.

    Apple would never merge. Instead they would just buy Samsung.
