Yeah those 3rd party companies get licensed by Microsoft. There have been a few instances where MS sued companies for not licensing.
There are lots of patents involved, which is why most 3rd party controllers look completely different than the stock ones.
It's pretty clear above that Samsung ripped off the color buttons and the d-pad from the 360 controller. The analogs and home button look awfully familiar to what Nintendo uses.

All those bitching about copying design. you must hate going into places where coffee makers, tires, blankets, pillows, shoes, and about EVERYTHING ELSE looks the same. Shut up with your whining about things being copied. It happens in every ****ing field,place, or whatever. Get used to it. It's how things get better. You copy one good idea, but hopefully add something else to it. If it wasn't good, it wouldn't be worth copying.
Or do you just want some unique, never been seen design for a controller.... something like the N64 but for phones? Cause I'd rather have something I'm pretty familiar with.

You pretty clearly don't understand what a patent is... How many coffee makers look identical to a Keurig? None, because it's patented. How many tires look the same? All, because you can't patent it. If you're going to call people out, at least have your facts straight...
