"I'll prove to you that is a gross, gross exaggeration, and an insult to your intelligence," Samsung lawyer John Quinn said as he kicked off his opening statement.
Quinn also pulled a page from Apple's playbook and showed reviews of Samsung products talking about their innovations.
As expected, Quinn characterized Apple's software features as "small" and "minor" and not the reason why people buy Samsung's phones. Rather, he said, it is things such as screen size and battery life that prompt people to buy its phones. Apple doesn't even use four of the five patents at issue in its phones, Quinn argued.
