Apple didn't copy Motorola, they launched Touch ID, a completely different technology. Motorola's implementation never worked, so they abandoned it.
There was a totally functional fingerprint scanner on some Windows Mobile devices. Giving a biometric scanner a new name does not instantly make it something new and compelling. That's an Apple sales trick.
It's more like a comparison between a v8, a flat six, a rotary engine, and an electric engine.
Motorola screwed the pooch but there were phones before that did it excellently.
In regards to apple introducting a larger screen iPhone:
They were already thier first back in the mid 90's, oh look do I see a stylus . Lol.
The Newton was anything but a phone. It was a PDA with the one added feature of decent handwriting recognition. Outside of that, it was like every other PDA on the market. Even that wasn't new tech, it was just the first time it was so portable.
Actually Steve stole that from Picasso, But seriously you don't seem to understand it, and very few people in tech actually do.
It has to do with art history, it's the difference between aping and assimilating, between leading and following.
Apple leads the industry.
Do you disagree?
In what regard does Apple lead the industry? I'd argue that, at least in the last 5 years, Apple has stolen much more from other OEMs than they have stolen from Apple. The last real clincher was capacitive screen but then you have those half-wits at Samsung trying to make a fingerprint scanner which was just sad...
In regards to competition, it's an illusion.
Just look at all the incumbents for proof. They are all gone.
Good luck with the iPhone 6.
Funny... Apple is behind in pretty much every market and even Windows Phone is beating it in a plethora of countries.
