I suppode that being a copycat takes a lot of the pressure of the designers. And of course, the great unwashed masses forget that they are looking at a copy,

I guess the statement from Apple to the contrary, got lost somewhere over the Atlantic pond.

I think any talk of Apple or Samsung going under is silly, Samsung has finally figured out how to make a smart phone, as have many others and Apple is going to see their margins go down lest they lose market share (not just to Samsung) When the iPhone came out it was truly revolutionary, but now very little separates it from the others. The only thing they do better really is marketing, ie. making a lot of people think they are worth the premium. BTW, a 16GB iPhone 5 costs AUD$799 in Australia, we must be pretty gullible.

Samsung will never jeopardise processor sales with Apple because of what happens in the courtroom, it would destroy their ability to sell to anyone of any size. And anyway, it seems the publicity for Samsung out of the lawsuit was actually worth it weight in gold.

If you can believe Apple's website, there's 225 hrs vs 200 on standby, 8 vs 6 hrs browsing on 3G and 10 vs 9 hours while browsing on on WiFi. Talk time is 8 hours for both. This is 5 vs 4GS BTW. They seem to have used the most of the extra speed/power trade off for speed if the 2x speed improvement holds water

You can't be serious! Get whichever phone you think you will like best. Neither company is going anywhere any time soon. Even while they fight in court, they are enjoying a mutually beneficial symbiosis. Apple-Samsung sort of reminds me of the U.S.-China relationship -- "frenemies" that can't live without each other even though at times they get really ticked off at each other.

I am a lot more interested in longer battery life than I am in faster performance. It will be interesting to see how the 5 compares to the 4s on both metrics.

Yeah sure, an article to maintain the hype around an extortionately large American fashion brand, crApple, has an anti-American bias :/ As for ARM, they offer more competition in the marketplace by licensing their IP to third parties. Anyone with any wit would support the ARM model over Intel's -- just compare the prices of ARM silicon to Intel's -- an order of magnitude cheaper. Puts all Intel's extortionate profits into perspective when compared to the slim earnings of ARM.

Anandtech is now claiming its an Apple custom ARM 7vs implementation similar to Krait from Qualcomm. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6292/iphone-5-a6-not-a15-custom-core Has VFP4.0 but isn't an A15. xcode shows armv7 and armv7s as architectures

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
