    An iPhone for people who hate Apple

    NEW YORK — You don’t need to squint too hard to see the similarities between the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Apple’s iPhone 6. The curved aluminum edges, the placement of the volume and on/off buttons, the bumped-out rear camera and pretty much everything else about the Galaxy S6 is the same as the iPhone 6 — right down to the fingerprint-sensor home button.
