I'm not sure where you are getting the "falling behind" bit. Apple has always been behind on features of the iPhone. Their approach has always been to get it working correctly first so other features don't suffer (like battery life)... Except of course the maps fiasco. They screwed the pooch on that one. Other phones having more features than an Apple iPhone is nothing new.
Just that fact that you are calling Apple arrogant is a blaring admission that you don't like them thus making it difficult to talk objectively. There was never any name calling toward Samsung in this thread. Just a simple discussion about their ad scheme.
You know nothing about what I like and don't like so save it. I have the following in my house: 1-iMac 27inch 2012 model, 1-MBP 13 inch, 2 Iphones, 1 Ipod touch, 2 Apple TVs and 4 iPads. I have all that but am not blinded by Apple. That is called being objective, can you say the same?
