when Apple copies Samsung (eg, phablet), it's an innovation.  When Samsung copies Apple (eg, color) , it's a theft / disgrace / embarrassing / end of civilization.  LOL!!   Sure, Samsung always copies and everything Apple does is original, but this is hilarious. 
 just out of curiosity, what do you do and what productivity tools/apps do you use for work, other than Safari web browser?
 it depends on the strength of patents asserted here.  In Samsung's case, most of Apple's patents are now invalidated and, I suspect, when all said and done, Samsung would probably end up paying one 10th of the original award (about $100M plus change).  Unlike Apple's design patents and trade dress claims, WAF's claims are based on technical patents.  @mwhiteco : do we not remember Apple's futile copyright lawsuit against Microsoft that dragged out for years in the 80's?...
@Shervin :  Not sure if TSMC would get ahead of Samsung in 10nm.  But, from political / economic perspective, sure, we all love Taiwan made SOCs (TSMC) over US made SOCs (Samsung) -- whatever works for Apple. 
 @Macky the Macky : his article was not published as an "op-ed", rather as, a "hand-on."  Then he cited bogus footnotes, benchmarks and, most laughably, his own article, as primary source.  My point here is that all his articles should be treated as "op-ed;" not based on facts or reality, but one  blogger's opinion grounded on wishful thinking. No, stop making stuff up. LOL!!   All mobile SOCs are LP, low-power, but only a few are dual "power-saving" arch.  In Samsung's...
 This op-ed is full of errors and exaggeration as usual.  In his last cpu comparison "op-ed", he compared the performance of the A8 and the Exynos 7420 -- and, of course, DED's Exynos benchmark was based on the power-saving A53 quad. In this particular article, take, for instance, his claim that :  now, if you know anything about Apple's GPU strategy, they have long outsourced their GPU design to Imgtech and the last three or fours A SOCs had no fewer than 4+ GPU cores --...
 and nobody with right mind would buy Teslas without any tax breaks.  And that's what Apple is probably betting on -- even greater "green" tax incentive from the US gov't to finance consumer purchase. 
 @lymf : I think Samsung should request an en banc. If not, the SCOTUS. 
 The autocorrect patent is also strange in that it's not even used by Apple.  And that's one of the main reasons why the district court refused to grant an injunction on this case.   The legal standards for granting an injunction in the US is fairly high and patent holders must prove infringement and irreparable harm (eg, lost sales) to ban a product here.  By reversing the lower court's ruling, the majority in this case pretty much reversed their own legal precedents they...
 @DaveN :  this split decision in the appeals case deals with a very specific issue -- whether a sales injunction is an appropriate remedy for Samsung's infringement, not whether Apple has to share their patents.
