Yawn
Other than the sapphire "glass" nothing suggested makes much difference. I'm happy with my iPhone 5 at present and have little reason to change. It's been a much better experience than my previous smartphone - a Motorola Droid 2 Global. Bigger screens mean fewer pockets where it can be safely stowed, which is a negative design choice for many.

Re: Why is it a rip off?
Had not thought of that, or knew that was their pattern.

Re: Why is it a rip off?
No, the problem is Apple will then try to sue every other company that already has it trying to say the other company is using their patent.  Apple has done that since the days of the Apple2 computer so I really don't expect them to change their business practices now.

Should this surprise me?
Just picked up an iPhone 5c for my daughter tonight.  Very nice form factor, especially next to my phablet sized Galaxy Note.  Kind of surprised to see Apple bloat up their phones, I would think their user base would squawk.  Then again their user base would probably hold a dead chicken up to their ear if it had an Apple logo on it...

Why is it a rip off?
Why is it a rip off if different companies introduce different features at different times? Seriously, is every airplane today a rip off of the Wright Brothers?

Don't sacrifice function for thin
Being now the not-so-happy owner of a 9.15mm thick (measured; I don't know what they advertise) Galaxy S5, I would advise Apple not to go crazy to make the thing thin. If it takes another mm or 2 to make it indestructible and fit a superb camera and a battery that will last for a hard day's work, I'd love it. Actually, I'd probably love it anyway.
