Everything from the phone's exterior to its user interface seem lifted directly from the design book of Steve Jobs himself. In the case of Samsung, imitation was indeed the most sincere form of flattery. On April 15, 2011, Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung, accusing the South Korean company of wholesale copying features of the iPhone for use in many of its own products. Much of the complaint focuses on the Samsung's Galaxy S, which Apple showcased in its court filing as the most egregious example of Samsung's imitation.
"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style
for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology,
user interface and innovative style in these infringing products," Apple said in the lawsuit.
