Samsung has taken a leaf from the Apple design book. It is trying to take on the giant by its horns. It is evident from the fact that they have ditched their age old plasticky construction to a more premium looking combination of metal and glass. It is trying to emulate iPhone design elements to give it a boost. Add to it, their own innovative features like edge display.
One more move in the direction of becoming an all encompassing brand, it has decided to offer a host of Microsoft products preinstalled in addition to free subscriptions to MS services like One Drive.
