As even AppleInsider concedes, there’s nothing technically wrong with Samsung’s latest promo for the Galaxy S6. The company does bend glass, sculpt with diamonds and “relentlessly pursue the edge of innovation.”

But as Apple has long complained — loudly and litigiously — the innovation it pursues is too often Apple’s.

See, for example, the attached video for the Galaxy S6, which flatters Apple’s Watch Edition: Gold down to the British accent, the aluminum machining and the molten metal pouring from a crucible.

You be the judge:

Samsung’s Galaxy S6

Apple’s Watch Edition: Gold
