Hypocritical Double Standards 101: Welcome to the world of Apple and their loyal fans.
I'm not a hypocrite, I don't have double standards and I'm not "loyal" to Apple either. Chill.
"Releasing a 4-inch smartphone" isn't the same as "copying another smartphone". Samsung (or any other Android manufacturer) did not invent the concept of a larger display, nor 4G LTE. It's natural progression to use better technology when it becomes available, as is listening to the market -- for years Apple users have wanted a larger display.
And Apple couldn't have made the display larger any more differently -- unlike Android manufacturers, Apple only increased the height of the iPhone, not the width... that way it's still usable with one hand.
And more importantly the iPhone 5 looks nothing like any of Samsung's smartphones. Samsung on the other hand has at least a couple of smartphones which look too similar, such as the S or S 2, and then they've got a tablet or two as well as the packaging.

I'm not blind.
The only similarity between the two is that they're both rectangles. The Nano has a coloured border, a coloured aluminium back, a thin black bezel on the front, a longer screen, a very different home button, and a completely different UI. On top of that it's the only model which is black, the rest of them are all white.
It looks like an iPod touch without the top bezel.Edited by steelbom - 9/17/12 at 12:39am
