The last word: Is the Galaxy S6 an iPhone clone?

The last word: Is the Galaxy S6 an iPhone clone?

By on March 2, 2015 at 10:41 AM.

Ahead of Sunday’s huge Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge unveiling at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Spain, there was a lot of chatter focused on similarities between the Galaxy S6 we saw in leaks and Apple’s iPhone 6. Many people suggested that Samsung was getting ready to copy the iPhone once again with its new flagship phones — in some ways of course, that would be a good thing — and leaked images of handset prototypes certainly made it appear as though that would be the case.

Now that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are official and we have spent some time with both new models, it’s time to determine once and for all whether or not Samsung’s latest and greatest is the blatant iPhone ripoff many Apple fans have said it is. More →

Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

Samsung has managed to make quite a name for itself over the years — in more ways than one. The company practically came from out of nowhere and skyrocketed to the top of the smartphone market in just a few short years, quickly becoming the No. 1 vendor in the world by shipment volume. Of course, the company borrowed a lot from Apple along the way, and it made a reputation for itself as a copycat as a result.

Companies borrow from each other all the time, of course, but Samsung was probably a bit more blatant about it than it should have been — see this secret 132-page guide to copying the iPhone that Samsung made back in 2010 for an example.

And now, it looks like Samsung might be back to its old tricks with the upcoming new Galaxy S6. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6: New video compares sizes using a Galaxy S6 mockup

We have seen dozens of leaks and rumors leading up to Samsung’s March 1st unveiling of its next-generation flagship smartphones.

The second is rumored to be a slightly modified Galaxy S6 Edge version with the same specs, but it will have a screen that curves toward the back of the device on both sides.

We’ve read the rumors, we’ve seen the schematics and we’ve watched the renders dance around on video. Now, however, a 3D printed Galaxy S6 dummy has been created and compared to Apple’s iPhone 6 on camera. More →
