Apple and Samsung are 2 of the biggest companies in the world. Not a month passes without them finding something else to lock horns about but they are the only 2, out of all the mobile companies in the world, who actually make any real money with their products.
In 2007, Apple came up with the first real smartphone. Out of everybody, Samsung was the one who picked up the baton and ran the quickest with it. They are the company who has adapted the most to the smartphone revolution and we wonder if the reasoning behind that is because of their propensity in copying Apple. Here are 9 ways in which Samsung have copied Apple:
1. Voice Recorder App
A quick look at the app on the Samsung Galaxy SII could have you thinking you were looking at an iPhone app as they are so much alike.
2. Charger Port
Take a look at the charger port on the Galaxy Tab 1 and see how alike it is to the iPad. Samsung now use USB.
3. Old Charging Bricks
Compare an old Samsung one to an Old Apple one and see if you can tell the difference.
The packaging on the Galaxy Tab is very similar to the iPad packaging.
Samsung icons for things like the Phone App, ones that are common to Smartphone’s, look very much like Apple icons.
6. Lookalike Phones
How many others think that the first Galaxy S Phone is very similar to the iPhone ?
Samsung Wallet was created after Apple’s Passbook and both are virtually identical apps.
Some of the Samsung Stores look very much like Apple stores.
9. Mini Stores
Samsung has these within Best Buy Stores, there to help with issues on the Galaxy phones and tablets. Bit like Apple’s Genius bars then.
