With This Move, There’s No Doubt Samsung is “Inspired” by Apple

Browse This Page

We often tend to treat Apple vs Samsung a little like Congress vs BJP or India vs Pakistan (you decide which is which), because we see the companies themselves, bickering about who is copying whom and why one is better than the other. Well, this time, it’s 10 points to Apple.

iPhone 6s Rose Gold

Apple and Samsung now have devices in identical colours

Apple has emerged a winner in the recent blame game battle as Samsung is coming out with a ‘Pink Gold’ colour variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. We aren’t extremely surprised by this decision because the colour itself, we mean Apple’s ‘Rose Gold’ has been selling like hot cakes. So what’s wrong if Samsung takes a hint and comes up with its own (read borrowed) version of it? Nothing really.

In addition to the controversial Pink, Samsung is also coming up with ‘Silver Titanium.’ Both these colours will be available in South Korea by October 23rd and other countries will soon follow suit.

While some might think that it’s just a colour and not really something to be breaking our heads over, let us know your views in the comments below.

Let the war begin.

    This phone touch screen will malfunction if in contact with ur sweaty ears. Samsung warranty will not cover for this. I’m so pissed off with such excuse. Who else I can complain to? I encountered this right after my 1st day of sport. This is seriously not acceptable.

    Then why did Samsung copy non removable battery concept & metal body design in s6 & s6 edge. Previously, it blamed Apple that it is not allowing its customers to change the battery, if & when required. Now what happened to it.
    I am not taking sides here. Both are successful co’s and have their user base. Both copy or should I say get inspired by each other. Apple coming out with big screen which Samsung brought into fashion with Note 1. And, we as consumers should be happy bcoz both are pushing each other. Outcome is good products. And in a way competition will bring the best out of both.
    Like Cr7 & Messi…

    Making colorful phones is copying now! Well every phone has a black version. Then who’s copying whom?
    Where were you when apple revealed i-pencil (concept copied from Samsung) . Igyan is truly biased towards apple.
