According to Apple marketing chief Greg Joswiak in a recent documentary, Android devices are “annoying” and “poorly replicating” Apple’s technology.

Apple’s 15th-anniversary celebration of the iPhone was the subject of a new documentary, originally reported by Macrumors and shared by The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday. This video included a part devoted to Android smartphones and how they were the first to introduce larger screens, years before the iPhone.

Joswiak remarked that Samsung and other Android phone producers were unpleasant when asked how much of an impact they had on Apple at the time. “They were a pain.” In addition, they were a nuisance because they stole our technology. They used our inventions to make a terrible duplicate of them, and then merely added a larger screen around them. As a result, we were a little less than happy.

In 2013, when Samsung debuted smartphones like the Galaxy Note or even the Galaxy S4 with a 5-inch screen, Apple had only a 4-inch display on the 4s. With the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 2014, they finally had large-screen phones with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays.

Since then, we’ve witnessed a surge in interest in iPhones with huge screens.

According to the suit, patent infringement lawsuits were filed by Apple against Samsung in 2011 because Samsung’s Galaxy range of smartphones was believed to have duplicated the iPhone’s design. It was originally granted $1 billion in damages to the Cupertino behemoth, but this figure was later reduced after a second trial.

Eventually, Apple came to terms in 2018, stating, “We believe firmly in the value of design and our teams work relentlessly to create innovative products that excite our consumers.” More than money has always been at stake in this case. As a matter of fact, it is our design that Samsung has plagiarized, having sparked the smartphone revolution with the iPhone.

“It is critical that we continue to protect the hard work and ingenuity of so many employees at Apple,” said Apple. “We’re grateful to the jury for their service and glad that they agreed that Samsung should pay for duplicating our products,” the company said in a statement.
