Looks pretty cool and the only part that really screams XBOX is the button letters/colors. Dont see why they couldnt of changed these.
Actually, dont see really what the big deal is. A lot of 3rd parties make controllers for the XBOX that looks more like the XBOX controller than Samsung's. Should Razer be sued as well and be complained about? Maybe Razer is licensed for it...who knows...still, nothing new tho. I have seen other controllers for the PC that look similar to the XBOX as well. (see below)
Easy to hate on Samsung since they are a hot topic...not so easy I guess to take a step back and realize this isnt anything new in the industry.

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...
