Last week we asked you about the rumored screen change for the iPhone 5 Bigger Screen For The iPhone 5, Good Or Bad? [MakeUseOf Poll] Bigger Screen For The iPhone 5, Good Or Bad? [MakeUseOf Poll] With other devices slowly getting bigger and bigger, the iPhone has been stuck with its 3.5 inch screen ever since its launch. While Apple maintained that this is the perfect size for a smartphone, they... Read More . As it happens, the iPhone 5 rumors were temporarily  buried only days later, with Apple’s win over Samsung, but we’ll get to that in a moment. As for the iPhone’s 5 screen, is seems that no one opinion has consensus with MakeUseOf’s readers.

Out of 355 votes in total, 26.5% think a change in screen size would be good no matter what, 24.5% think a bigger screen would be good only if it’s also wider, not just taller, 16% think the current screen size is great and don’t want to see it change, 10% think it doesn’t matter as the iPhone rocks either way, and 23% don’t care about iPhones.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

poll-results-august-25

This week’s poll question is: What Do You Think About Apple’s Win Over Samsung?

Consequently, if Apple decides the change the iPhone’s screen size, it might start resembling other smartphones on the market. A similar thing happened to Samsung, who as of this week owe Apple 1 billion dollars for patent infringements, made especially by the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II. While there is some resemblance between these devices and the iPhone, one could say most smartphones and tablets have a similar design. What do you think of the outcome of this long trial?

    weird. After voting 'not sure', recusing myself because I have only a (media fueled, media fed) idea of the complete issues, I find myself in the tiniest minority. Are people so willing to jump to conclusions? (please don't answer that)...
    I found Yang Yang's comment rather interesting, since yes, here in Korea, Samsung is equivalent to the government (they bought their way out of too many scandals involving bribes, etc) and used the familiar 'too big too fail' argument to avoid further prosecution- so it stands to reason that Apple would lose in court here (if you call a 'copied each other' verdict less than winning), and yes, it also stands to reason that a Korean-American judge presiding in California would have to prove her allegiance (or 'neutrality' as it is termed) by finding against a prototypically Korean company.
    But nationality aside (since it's ALL made in China, seriously, folks) -What I find most interesting is the history of innovation, if you look at the history of copyright you discover that it wasn't invented (in the 18th century) to protect authors at all, but to establish the hegemony of book printers. So there's a bit of mythification that has happened in western civilization with regards to the nature of 'creativity' and works of art regarded as 'unique'- and I think a lot of this carried over into the world of patents, and it might be even harder to prove uniqueness in this field, since the history of scientific discovery is replete with simultaneous discoveries, often by people on different continents, who couldn't possibly have copied their rival.
    In regards to the Apple vs the Others arguments, I wonder if it isn't as someone said above, that when you litigate to compete you are a little bit desperate - the problem with the concept of patent law is that innovators aren't just up against copiers, but they face the disadvantage of the 'free market' itself. Henry Ford succeeded initially for any number of innovative (e.g. assembly line) reasons, but ultimately it was the market that determined his success. I don't have to quote the VHS vs Betamax argument ad nauseum, but Ford, Chevy, et. al failed to respond to the energy crisis of the 70's and so the Japanese moved in with cheaper, more fuel efficient, and more reliable cars and look at where they are now. So in light of this I ask myself, is it really relevant that they struck a blow to the competition, or that they have less than 10% market share in the worlds fastest growing/largest potential customer base, that is, China? That one fact may determine much more of the future than court cases ever could.

    Really haven't paid attention to this court case.....but now Apple has made so much it should bring down it's price point on i-phones and apps etc.

    Personally, I have neither just prefer a phone for calls and a few texts, don't need all the bells and whistles that come with the newer i-phones and tablets. Need glasses to read texts as it is wouldn't have to use them constantly with a phone or tablet!

    Just give me my pc and big screen and I'm happy.

    I'm using Samsung for almost a decade now (not smartphone, though - I can't afford it) and I must say, I like Galaxy more that iphone. Apple has now better reputation only because of Steve Jobs' death, but that doesn't guaranty the quality and durability of their gadgets...

  10. Benjamin
    August 27, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    It's pure absurdity. It's like getting a patent for watches in a circular shape, or light bulbs in a bulbous shape. For starters, the American copyright law is built to make things like this possible, it's designed to facilitate monetization of everything.
    But then, this is going too far even for American standards, and it has me suspecting a dirty deal of some sorts behind closed doors, whatever...

    I was closely following this and i am really surprised by the verdict.
    Its just as said in the movie 'The Social Network', a man who makes a chair doesn't owe money to everyone who has ever made a chair.
    Now smartphones are going sleek, so similar design strikings would occur but obviously. Now is Samsung was copying the iOS interface or any patents like Siri, iCloud or other trademarks, that is a solid base for lawsuit, but similar sleek design, not that's just pathetic!

    All this will do is discourage development. What's next? Lawsuit on Google for coming up with Google Voice after copying Apple Siri?

    • Kenyatta Gilliam
      August 28, 2012 at 12:59 am

      Apple has done it again! Apple stole the work of Siri from a Chinese or Taiwanese college and claimed it for their own and now the media is hushing it all up. Well i would make it known because I hate apple with a passion. Also apple has stole ideas from Sony as well because Sony has been making phones for years and I think Sony is on the verge of suing them as well. I think apple has copied Sony designs for its new iphone5.

          No, actually. If the verdict says a smartphone design is definitely copied, when it's something simple is a rectangle with rounded corners, it doesn't sit well with the verdict that one can't copy a social network.

          I'm not sure what you are trying to say.

          The FB verdict was that Mark paid some amount to the original idea creators but continued the site.
          Whereas the verdict for apple says that not only samsung has to pay a billion, it also must shutdown production of those units under the ban.

          So i'm not sure whether you are supporting samsung here or apple or supporting FB's win or against the FB win.. :o

  13. Nancy Graziano
    August 27, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    I think Apple's win in the courts is a travesty for two specific reasons.

    Apple really is the pot calling the kettle black in this situation... if it were not for the fact that Wozniak (et al) toured the Xerox PARC facility in 1979 and then proceded to steal much of what they saw (e.g., the graphical user interface, the mouse, etc.,) Apple would not be where they are today if they ever even got off the ground/out of the garage.

    In addition, they claimed that the "rectangle with round corners" was their idea, and that Samsung stole their tablet's design. Seems to me Gene Roddenberry theorized the first tablet in the original Star Trek series way back in the 1960s - LONG before Apple was even a glint in the founders' eyes... take a look:

    http://tinyurl.com/9oejv7y

    And if you look at Star Trek: The Next Generation, Capt. Picard used his tablet all the time:

    http://tinyurl.com/9k996vl

    Also, if you ever watch Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, guess what? There are tablets on screen there as well!

    So, if anyone should be found "guilty" of stealing others' ideas, it is Apple. They have consistently done so throughout their entire business life. This decision is really ridiculous and should be overturned...

    What's next? The iBible and then claiming that Moses et al plagiarized Jobs/Wozniak's ideas???

If it's only possible to achieve an increasingly common piece of code/hardware one way, I wonder if a patent should be issued at all...

    The patent system may very well be broken, but jurors spent weeks hearing arguments from both sides. By now they likely know a LOT more about the infringing design elements than we do. If we believe in the justice system then, yes, according to current law Samsung is guilty whether or not we, as relatively less briefed consumers, agree.

    Actually,I think that Samsung copied all from Apple as one can see very similar things like icons,their tablets(Galaxy tab 10.1) look similar and there has been some instances that proves it true.This decision will affect Android as well as Samsung in a large way as Google was mum when Apple was dragging many companies to courts.
    Even Microsoft doesn't shows pity to those Android manufacturers and gain approximately $15 from each Android a manufacturer sells.

    So,time has come for all companies dealing with Android to rise and show some caliber to fight vigorously with Apple and defeat it by their design and innovation keeping consumer needs in consideration.

    Actually Samsung had to pay a very minor amount for the fame, popularity and wide acceptance it has gained after following Apple. Be it tablets or phones, Samsung is now at number two, like it or not, where as genuine makers like Sony and HTC (include Nokia) among others, all are suffering because they haven't copied Apple but continue with their own ideas and innovations, atleast on the hardware part.

    Samsung has somewhat diluted the notion of having a super-fast phone, its not always about the bench-marking, fps counting, webpage rendering stuff that Samsung is always winning ground on. In real life, all people want is something that looks good (not a copy), different, makes a few calls and can provide decent entertainment. The iPhone does all that, its not the fastest phone, yet it has a soul in its design, like the Lumia 900 from Nokia and the Xperia Arc from Sony.

    Apple is just way way out of control with suing one company or another. But it all stems from the fact that these companies are allowed to patent practically anything they like.

    August 27, 2012 at 5:04 am

    I personally chose the 'I don't care' option, as it was the only one valid for me.
    Sure, I find many uses of patents ridiculous, especially when it's stuff like smartphone vs smartphone, which both should be made for the customer's improvement, not the competition against each other.
    But that doesn't mean I should care *that* much. As customer I just get to hear/read that one side lost, that's all there is to my view. Unless you're a fanboy or work for either side of the two companies, you won't truly have to care about the outcome.

    About the outcome, I haven't followed the trial that closely, but I have seen that several people did follow it closely. Close enough to discover some contradictions in the verdict, such as patent infringements that lacked sufficient proof, yet were approved to infringe copyrights.

    Other people are stating how it's just wrong that the patents used actually are patents:

    Without Motorola the iphone wouldn't even exist nor a single cell phone would exist.

  35. Laga Mahesa
    August 26, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    The poll is too narrow. In the overall scheme of things, it is meaningless for us consumers. Yes, Samsung has lost face, but it's already done that in other areas (corruption, misc scandals, etc) and, don't forget, this is not the first time Samsung has been taken to court for copypasta. RIM did it the last time, I believe.

    Remember that the infringing products aren't even current. By the time any of this takes effect, those phones will be several generations out of date.

    Samsung is currently the darling of the tech/geek crowd. It has the linux fans, the general 'open' fans, and the rabid anti-Apple fans. It also has fans in Asia and elsewhere in people who cannot afford an iPhone but want a similar experience at a more affordable pricepoint.

    Samsung got a huge leg up with its copying, with a huge discount in R&D, marketing and userbase.

    I am a huge fan of all Samsung products except for their mobile devices... but that is only because I'm disappointed with the whole Android market. The 'flood the market' approach everyone is taking means that a brand new phone will be outdated within six months, and post sales support is negligible. That's to be expected, though, with a new market in a state of flux, which is why I'm waiting until Android 5 before I revisit the idea of buying into Android.

    Remember that most of the world has to pay full price for these devices, and actually look after them. At the given price points, there's a clear winner.

      I'm not sure I understand what you mean when you say the poll is too narrow, though. It is simply looking for people's opinions regarding the outcome of the trial. Naturally, the mobile market is a much wider subject, one which cannot be covered by one simple poll question....

      Cause Apple licenses their patents when? Oh that's right, never. Apple is greedy, bought most of those patents anyway, and most of them are what should be industry standards by now. I do think Samsung copied on some things, yes, but it's been proven in court in the EU and in Korea that Apple has copied Samsung more than Samsung has copied Apple. Funny how only in the US Apple wins. Just shows you how screwed up our patent system is.

        Totally agree. I agree, the ultimate problem is the patent system. The only ones who really win are the lawyers. I'm a fan of Apple but, competition in the marketplace is more important to drive innovation.

          This is something I can agree with entirely. At the end of the day, the real problem lies with a convoluted patent system, that ends up hurting the people who actually bring the money into the equation -- the consumers.

        It makes perfect sense though. Apple is an US company while Samsung is Korean. The US patent system should protect US interests.

      Apple learned from its experience of suing Microsoft over the windows operating system, claiming Microsoft stole an idea they developed. The court didn't buy their argument, however, since the graphical interface was given to Steve Jobs by PARC when Xerox didn't know what to do with it. Now Apple patents every component on their devices and challenges any competitor to spend cash proving them wrong.

      Especially since "Apple" stole its name from the Beatles' record company!

    Hopefully, when the case goes to an appeal, a court without its collective head in the clouds will see this for what it is - Apple omniscience. If Apple sold water, it would sue Coca Cola and Pepsi-Co claiming it owns the rights to dispense clear drinks from small-mouth containers with round holes.

    Apple has two strategies. The first is to create very good consumer electronics products using technologies they develop or buy and house the products in well-designed casing. The second is to harass any other company that competes with them, particularly if the company is successful. Apple has the money to sue, but is spending their fortune really to the benefit of shareholders and consumers? I don't think so.

    Success with the first strategy means Apple with continue to create wealth for shareholders and new products for customers. Success with the second strategy is incentive to not innovate, which ultimately will impact the first strategy.

    I hope Samsung, Microsoft and any other company will take Apple's win as incentive to leapfrog them with new technologies and designs that forces Apple to play "catch-up."

    Should I become concern with Samsung Galaxy S3 when Samsung lost to Apple? Maybe discontinue S3 or what?

    • Yaara Lancet

      I don't think the S3 is one of the devices Apple is after. They released a list of devices they want to ban last week, and I believe it included the S1, some versions of the S2, and some other, less popular devices. The S3 should be safe. Even Apple can't claim it resembles the iPhone...

    I followed this trial closely--I was quite disappointed at the Apple win, since most of their claims are ridiculous!

    Those 9 Apple fanboys in the jury probably asked Siri about the verdict.

      This is just Apple crying because they no longer have a monopoly on the system like they thought.
