Legal "The 2010 report, translated from Korean, goes feature by feature, evaluating how Samsung's phone stacks up against the iPhone. Authored by Samsung's product engineering team, the document evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward and in most cases its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone." Pretty damning. We still need to know a few things: how many of these were actually implemented? How common are these types of comparisons (i.e., does Apple have them)? Are these protected by patents and the like? And, but that's largely irrelevant and mostly of interest to me because I'm a translator myself, who translated the document, and how well has he or she done the job?

Apple's touch screen

Built by LG, developed over decades by academia, small companies, and large companies like LG, Sharp, Samsung, and so on. Not Apple.

Why can't any of the competitors get the same responsiveness form them?

Ignoring the fact that this is clearly not true (take a look at any Windows Phone or Android phones post-ICS and JB), it's because Apple's software is better. Not because they invented it.

By your rationale Samsung invented it so it should have the same product but it is not.

I did not claim anything like that.

Apple invented the tech Samsung is contracted to manufacture it.
