Just think, there's warm & classy gold, like Apple's matt champagne finish, then there's cold & brassy gold, like a gold bar finish. You just know which Samsung seem to have chosen judging by these pictures, & as you say those screens.

 

No matter how you dress it up, or put lipstick on it, a pig is still a pig.

Not sure why the Apple folks get so fired up about something meaningless like color. 

 

When will Samsung update their yellow flower gallery icon, don't they know representing a group of photographs with a yellow daisy is so passé?

Hey Samsung! Does your gold S4 have a 64-bit SoC?
With 64-bit OS, apps, and drivers? No?
Yeah. Didn't think so. Don't hold your breath for Google to release 64-bit Android.

It’s like elementary school. You’re a worthless, pathetic liar, just like everyone before you, and yet you’re trying to top all of their claims. I mean, for heaven’s sake, just say you have an effing Mac Mini. Or you want to buy an iOS device or something. If you’re going to waste our time, at least make your useless nonsense believable. Isn’t that what you’re being paid for? 

Geezaloo, Samsung really needs to screen its people better, and you really need to stop whoring yourself out to the lowest bidder. Can’t even have respectable trolling anymore.

4. Live tile / widget updates (Android feature that is awesome - Google Now rocks on Android phones and it alone is worth the switch)

5. Automatic updates of apps. (Oh... scratch that. Apple followed Androids lead here )

 

Speaking of copying, I just updated my iPad and wow, does it now look like the latest version of Android or what? Actually a huge improvement since IOS was looking dated compared to other devices and platforms out there. Unfortunately it didn't go far enough in my opinion.

 

Look folks, both sides take elements from each other and as customers we enjoy the benefit of this. Imagine if nobody was pushing Apple or any of the many Android manufacturers (or Google) what we would have. Innovation and taking what the other has done and making it better is what Apple (and others) are all about and I'm all for it. Apple didn't invent any of this stuff. They just took what others had done and made it better.

 

Having said all of this, I'm an Apple shareholder because I love the products they create and they have a loyal following. Could they be even better? Yes. What drives me nuts though and why a lot of people won't buy Apple products is because of the sheep and Apple lovers that think that Apple can do no wrong and they blab to whoever will listen and every other product is the enemy. It's not a very likable trait and it's not the majority but it's a very loud minority that I'm sure won't change.

 

"What drives me nuts though and why a lot of people won't buy Apple products is because of the sheep and Apple lovers that think that Apple can do no wrong and they blab to whoever will listen and every other product is the enemy."

 

This  sentence clarifies the agenda of MiddleGround. You couldn't make it ONE day without calling people names.  Yet you ask in a different post "Can't we all get along?"

 

What motivates an individual like you? Insecurity? Normal people who feel strongly enough to comment don't feel compelled to go onto comment boards and insult and pick fights while proclaiming themselves, in essence, moderate. Don't have have people around you that you can gripe too? Why do it here?  If you are driven nuts,  go where this won't happen.  Doesn't that make sense?

LOL.  Samsung has ripped off Home Depot faux-gold.

You've seen it in the bathroom & kitchen fixture department.

Right next to the faux-pewter and faux-brass.

I've read Apple Insider for a few years but never hit reply on any comments until today so no great mystery there. Maybe I shouldn't have since I didn't realize folks are like rabid conservative or liberal government pundits on here. It's kind of funny. And I certainly wouldn't call Fox (or MSNBC) fair and balanced but I guess it depends on your political leanings. Sort of like Apple Insider would be fair and balanced around other products that aren't Apple I guess. ;-)  I visit all kinds of sites as I try to be an open minded and educated buyer and investor. I realize some people are rabid Apple consumers but I didn't realize until I heard from them first hand how mesmerized they are by the brand to want to attack anyone who doesn't buy anything Apple without question. I like to review all options and pick what is best for me but that's just me. No reason to attack others for their choices or preferences and vice versa.

 

And yes I'm an iPad user (own 3 of them), have had iPods since their inception and had the original iPhone, 3GS and 4 models plus MacBooks. I happen to also have owned Windows products and Android products as well. Everyone one of them has their pros and cons.

 

Look at you..."rabid" "mesmerized".  You are doing *exactly* what you accuse others of doing.  You are not open-minded. Open-minded, educated people are able to discuss talking points without insults.

 

You seem singularly incapable of doing this.

How do we find that stuff out, anyway? I mean, there has to be somewhere we can go online to see that companies are offering money for this.

I have no gripes except for the folks that seem to want to pick a fight and can't remain open minded. Gees folks. It's a darn phone. And there are lots of choices out there and choosing one over another doesn't make you smart or dumb.

 

As for doing it here, I just saw some ridiculous comments attacking others and thought I would step in and provide some alternative ideas. I didn't realize that others on here would beat their opinion into me. lol  In the end it's both a bit sad and comical though since who's phone is better than the other isn't what's really important in life.

 

Right now, I'm talking about you.  You're the one calling people sheep, rabid and mesmerized. I'm not sure that it matters that you didn't make up the names or heard them elsewhere. I'm also not sure why you believe that insulting people is a good way to demonstrate open mindedness or present alternate ideas.

 

You call insult people(which seems like picking a fight to me) and then act shocked that people "attack" you.  You saw some people "attacking" others and figured that attacking them by calling them mesmerized, closed-minded, uneducated, rabid sheep is a good way to interject some civility?

 

Sure.

What's with the "lol"? Did I suggest that I wasn't okay with it? Or did I suggest that you grant the people who don't like a given feature the same respect that you ask for?

Okay. I can see that I'm wasting my time with you. You aren't interested in discussion. You can try to twisted it around as you like, but I think we both know that your motivations don't really included just trying to spread other ideas.

 

But if you honestly think that calling using "LOL" multiple times and calling people "rabid" is fine, try doing it to people's face instead of anonymously over the Internet.  

 

Some people...nutty...

I see you have doubled your post count since I checked in. Are you trying to set a new record for first day, first thread post count?

 

See, it's like you walk into bar in Golden, Colorado for the very first time. (no this is not going to be a joke) In the bar everyone has known one another for years and they all drink Coors, naturally, after all it is Golden. So you jump up on the stage and while tapping a spoon to your glass you proclaim that although Coors is a decent beer it really needs to take some cues from Budweiser. Everyone boos then goes back to talking to one another. Then you get up on stage again with the same BS. "Hey have any you guys tried Bud Light?" More boos! Over and over... Then you wonder why the crowd doesn't slap you on the back and ask if they can buy you a beer. What kind of reaction did you expect?

If this was a bar with the people on this board I would have been beaten thoroughly over the head with iPads, iPhones and other idevises until I left I guess.

Nobody cares which beer you like, they get along fine until you start telling them the beer they like is crap, then you'll piss them off. We mostly have iPhones and Macs around here but we all work in environments where there are many Android and Windows users. Everyone knows better than to start dissin' another guys devices. It is just common sense. It is different if you have a close friend who owns the other brand, because you can give each other shit and it is all in good fun, but you know better than to pull that crap with someone you just met.

 

We have plenty of Android users here but they didn't mention it first post. They got to know the forum people and one day said "Hey had an Android for awhile and it works ok." No one jumps on them because they didn't start telling us how iPhones are crap on day one.

Sorry if I offended anyone out there folks. It wasn't on purpose. Peace!

Sheep = mindless drones. Most of us buy Apple products because we believe the products are the best for our needs and not because it has a shiny Apple logo on it. The Apple logo does help but only because we rarely have bad experiences or the other side is worse.

I could have been more subtle but folks on here were acting like Apple never copied anyone and there were people who pretty much had closed minds about anything that wasn't Apple. I truly had no clue. I've read this blog for years but never the comments and now I wish I wouldn't have or got sucked into it.

Here was my first post since everyone seems to be providing information about me that isn't correct. The only thing I wish I would have said different and meant to say is there are sheep in any brand. When I read it again it seems like I'm only talking about the Apple sheep. Oops. Sorry folks.

The post you copied was in reply to someone who said something about if Apple wanted to copy what Samsung was doing they would just have to copy themselves. That was my reply to that and there is more to it than that. Again, I see the benefits in all products and while I  have a love for Apple products, there are some Samsung, Microsoft, Google and other products I love too.

""The comments on here are funny and who cares about colors? Apple copies Android and Samsung just like the others copy Apple.

Apple gets inspired and improves upon. Sammy flat out copies.

Define innovate for us. Larger screen and stylus aren't innovations.

Innovations on devices can be clearly seen by using them. Before Apple, Palm and Blackberry innovated. I'm probably showing my age but I had the original Palm and versions after it as well as various Windows CE devices. Each was innovative in its own way.

Samsung has some innovative things including how you interact with the screen, camera technologies and build structure plus it's built on the Android platform which has many innovative ideas baked in.

That being said, Apple is the more innovative company. They nail it in developing products that move the needle and define a market. Or at least they have in some markets.

Again all of this is easy to see if you try different devices. I happen to own one Android device and numerous Apple devices including currently an iPhone and Ipad.  I even own an Apple TV and an Apple Airport express. I guess I see the innovations that many other companies bring to the table and love that each drives the other to innovate more for us to enjoy.

Hmm. Interesting. Your prev post just mentions "color and old tech like fingerprint security." I guess you didn't remember the M7 chip, the fingerprint tech is newer/isolated on the chip, new features of the camera on a cell phone, 64 bit A7 chip, the improvements in iOS 7, etc.

So to sum up troll MO:
Say you're a fan since...but bash Apple.
List all your alleged Apple products.
Lie about Apple innovation.
Saying Apple just copies.

I think TS has a full list somewhere.

MG is reading from a slightly different playbook than the usual foaming-at-the-mouth Fandroid trolls that infest these comments so heavily. This holier-than-thou, passive-aggressive, more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger, I-own-$350,000-worth-of-Apple-stock crap must be from the latest Samsung-issued troll guidebook. It's infinitely more annoying, so I guess you could call it effective.

Sincere or otherwise, the attitude is that Apple should behave the way they want it to. But that's what I love about the word "should": it's not reality; it's frustration.

We discovered it immediately. His statements were in no way accepted as valid positions, and therefore seeding the community with dissent about the quality of Apple’s products was followed by an immediate salting of the earth. MUCH stronger than even regular trolls since it was virtually everyone coming together to tear him apart instead of just one or two of us.

 

Effective? :lol::p

Imagine looking at the main screen of your phone and your flight information for the day (including delays is automatically updated), scores from your favorite teams is updated, information about traffic on your drive home, reminders about an appointment and a tile letting you know your package has been shipped or is sitting on your porch at home just to name a few advantages. I had no clue how useful these would be where I don't have to look at my email or an app to get this information until I tried an Android device. Just because I happen to like this beneficial option doesn't mean I don't love my iPhone too. I just wish it had this one feature. Trust me, there are tons of features I love on my iPhone that I wish the Android did better.

 

I know I probably shouldn't be on this board if I don't just blindly gush over everything Apple. Sorry to upset the apple cart. Can't we all just get along?

 

Imagine, looking out the window and seeing how the weather is.

 

My iPhone alerts me of those things, twice now I've had alerts pop up telling me about a package being delivered.

I happen to own Apple, Samsung and Microsoft products so I guess that makes me the bad guy on this board. I come to here to learn about new products and features that Apple is working on. I didn't realize I have to be anti everything else to post on the board but I'm coming to learn this. ;-)

 

Interesting, a public admission to insider trading.

 

You'd better hope the FBI or SEC don't visit this site.

I've read Apple Insider for a few years but never hit reply on any comments until today so no great mystery there. Maybe I shouldn't have since I didn't realize folks are like rabid conservative or liberal government pundits on here. It's kind of funny. And I certainly wouldn't call Fox (or MSNBC) fair and balanced but I guess it depends on your political leanings. Sort of like Apple Insider would be fair and balanced around other products that aren't Apple I guess. ;-)  I visit all kinds of sites as I try to be an open minded and educated buyer and investor. I realize some people are rabid Apple consumers but I didn't realize until I heard from them first hand how mesmerized they are by the brand to want to attack anyone who doesn't buy anything Apple without question. I like to review all options and pick what is best for me but that's just me. No reason to attack others for their choices or preferences and vice versa.

 

And yes I'm an iPad user (own 3 of them), have had iPods since their inception and had the original iPhone, 3GS and 4 models plus MacBooks. I happen to also have owned Windows products and Android products as well. Everyone one of them has their pros and cons.

 

Was playing with a Note 3 yesterday, guess what Samsung has ripped off HTC's BlinkFeed and call it Magazine.

 

Such innovation.

No, because that would be illegal under the law passed the other day.

 

Samsung hire advertising and promotional companies to do this type of work for them, they were caught out in Taiwan.

I refuse to believe anyone actually passed a law that would protect consumers from this. :(
