5 Galaxy S5 Features the iPhone 6 Should Copy

  • MORE

Apple has been arguing for years — both in the courts and in the court of public opinion — that Samsung copied the iPhone to get a leg up in the smartphone market. That may be true for some functions, but Steve Jobs admitted in 2010 that there were areas where his company needed to catch up to Android. Fast-forward four years, and Samsung (the king of Android) has become the most innovative player when it comes to features.

Granted, the Galaxy S5's built-in fingerprint reader is almost certainly inspired by the iPhone 5s' Touch ID sensor. And I'm not suggesting Apple add a heart-rate monitor, either. But there are other features Samsung's flagship phone possesses that I wish the iPhone had. For me, adding a bigger screen on the iPhone 6 won't be enough. Apple should borrow or improve upon these Galaxy goodies.

    I agree with all of these, and I’m sure there’s still some more out there that they could use also.
