When “Apple kicked off the modern smartphone revolution, Samsung was the one company that was the quickest to catch on and adapt,” Steve Kovach writes for Business Insider. “And a lot of that is because, in part, it borrowed many of Apple’s ideas for its own products and services.”

9 ways Samsung has slavishly copied Apple over the years:
• Voice recorder app
• Galaxy Tab charger port and cords
• USB charging plug
• Galaxy Tab packaging
• Similar icons for common smartphone apps
• Original Galaxy S phone looks like original iPhone
• Samsung Wallet after Apple introduced Passbook
• Samsung retail stores
• Samsung mini stores within Best Buy stores

MacDailyNews Take: You forgot about S-voice, rubber-banding, the Galaxy Tab itself (direct knockoff of original iPad), grid icon layout, Mac mini knockoff, knockoffs of Apple product videos, copying Apple’s earphones, using the same actress on Apple ads in later Samsung ads, copying Apple’s iPad TV ads, etc., etc., etc.

Apple’s products came first, then Samsung’s:
