Great artists steal: The difference between Apple and Samsung

Samsung is widely regarded as having copied Apple's iPhone with their original Galaxy S products in order to gain broader, faster entry into the smartphone market. From device design to icon design to accessory design, Samsung inarguably copied Apple designs to a sometimes ludicrous degree. Yet many would argue Apple copies as well, in feature set if not in design. So why is it Samsung earns the ire of the designer community while Apple typically enjoys widespread praise? Is it just bias, or is there something fundamentally different about the way each companies copy? That's the topic Dave Wiskus explores in the second episode of his new series, Better Elevation.

iOS 8.0.2 - How's it working for you?

Apple has released iOS 8.0.2, the rapid update to 8.0.1, itself a quick update to iOS 8, which shipped last week in advance of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6. While the full binary download for iOS 8.0.1 seems to have been fine, the incremental update file served to the new phones cause some problems, namely loss of Touch ID and cellular service. But that was then and this is now. Many people, myself included, have now updated to iOS 8.0.2 and everything seems to be running smoothly, at least for me. If you've updated to iOS 8..2, let me know — what device are you on and how's it working for you?

Which new iPhone did you get? [Poll]

Which new iPhone did you get?

Apple released the brand-new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last weekend and sold a whopping 10 million of them. Before they launched, the iMore community was split almost exactly 50/50 on which one you wanted to get — big or bigger. Since things can change, however, we wanted to circle back around and see what your final choice was when you have money and phones in hand. So, which one did you go with?

Did you get the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 or the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus? Which color did you get, gold, silver, or space gray? Which capacity, 16GB, 32GB, 128GB? And did you change your mind when it came time to buy, or did you stick with your gut?

Vote up top and give us the details below!

Best iPhoneography of the week

Every day, millions of photos are taken around the world, and a good chunk of those are taken on an iPhone. It's no wonder why — the iPhone is super portable, has an amazing iSight camera and an incredibly easy to use Camera app. Combine that with the ability to share photos instantly via Twitter, Instagram and other social networks, and you have the perfect solution for capturing and publishing any moment imaginable. So, each week we're going to scour the social networks for uplifting, inspiring, touching, and all around amazing photos using #iphone #iphoneography #vscocam and similar hashtags and embed the best of what we find. And since iMore has an Instagram account now, if you really want to get our attention and get featured, use #imoregram to make sure we don't miss it. Enjoy!

How was your iPhone 6 launch day?

Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus today and many of you either waited in line or waited by the door for the delivery person. The lines were long, the trucks were slow, and the computers... well, they went down in some places for a while! So, how was your experience?

17 thousand iMore readers have voted! Find out who's getting an iPhone 6... and who's getting an iPhone 6 Plus!

The iPhone 6 is the next generation iPhone from Apple. The iPhone 6 Plus is the next generation iPhone from Apple with a bigger screen, longer battery life, optical image stabilization, and iPad-style apps in landscape. But, big. As much tiny iPad as it is huge iPhone. And that's led to a lot of questions and concerns over which one to get. We posted our iPhone buyers guide to try and help you choose, and then we asked you what choice you made. Almost 17K of you responded. So what was the answer? Which iPhone — iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus — will you be getting?

Did you update to iOS 8?

Did you update to iOS 8?

The dust is starting to settle as the great iOS 8 update is now with us. Despite all of the issues with download queues, long install times and potentially having to clear out oodles of space on our devices to accept the OTA, update day has a very different level of importance for every different person. Some of us are hovering as it approaches 10 a.m. PDT ready to hit the button as soon as it appears, others point blank don't want it – or can't have it – and there are those, perhaps wise souls, who prefer to wait it out a few days and see what issues there may be lurking beneath the surface. So, which camp do you fall into?
