Motorola tweets about Samsung Copying their Feature, Nokia Fans hit back

by Karthik Iyer 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which is the latest phablet from the company is going on sale starting today across the globe except for few countries where it is delayed due extremely high demand. This is turning to be one of the best smartphones this year after the Galaxy smartphone launched previously. With all the hype about the smartphone in the market, other manufacturers are certainly not happy about it.

So when a smartphone from a rival company is so popular and getting so much media attention, what can you possibly do? Well, Motorola tried something here. It came up with a post on the social media stating that one of the features of the Galaxy Note 7 has been borrowed from their Moto phones. The company tweeted saying: “In what galaxy is it okay to steal competitor phones’ cool features?” with the hashtag TheOriginalAlwaysOnDisplay and an image of a Moto Z showing off it’s always on display.

So it is clear that the company is hitting Galaxy Note 7 here as it comes with an updated always on display. Obviously, Samsung did not comment on this as expected, but surprisingly Nokia Fans raged Motorola with some replies to that tweet. Check out the image below for the same.


Nokia implemented the Always on display technology back in the days even before the Lumia series. At that time, the company did not portray it as Always On Display, but still it worked pretty well. And also if this were originally a technology developed by Motorola, then it would have been a wise option to patent the technology to avoid all these unnecessary interactions.

Few of the fans also started mocking Motorola, asking about the Security patch update decision as well. So ultimately, it all came back to Motorola only as they tried to mock Samsung with their tweet. Stay tuned for more info on this.

    Only stupid companies, employing stupid people, actually think that you can patent, copyright or protect ideas.

    Only implementations.

    Everybody is copying everybody. Apple copies Google Copies Samsung copies Motorola copies Nokia and vice versa.
