How much do you have to change the design before you can claim to be revolutionary and unique? The first iPhones sure had a lot more polish perhaps than other phones, but they were still the same basic shape as we'd seen before in other devices. So they put a bit more glass on, so they put a bit more glass on, remove some buttons, claim to be unique. Samsung comes along, adds glass, leaves the extra buttons on, gets sued for 1.2 Billion. If the design was truly that obvious, why was Apple photoshopping the Samsung devices to make them look more alike? Surely wouldn't have been needed if it was that obvious.

Meh.
