Samsung and LG have had a rocky relationship in recent years, and while it is understandable that fight for being the best in the country, things have heated up a bit.

Samsung and LG have had a rocky relationship in recent years, and while it is understandable that fight for being the best in the country, things have heated up a bit. With the background of last week in which the two companies reached an agreement in court for a patent dispute by OLED technology, now Samsung has decided to sue LG for 50 billion won (45 million dollars).

Samsung believes that LG has damaged their corporate image in a series of announcements from LG and therefore decided to take revenge and sue. However Lg was who threw the first stone having previously sued Samsung for the sum of 10 billion won.

But exactly why they are fighting for? Refrigerators, indeed, by the size of the refrigerators.

To this dispute that seems whimsical we must add that LG said a few weeks ago that  was thinking to sue Samsung for patent infringement of their eye tracking that includes the new Galaxy S4 and that it previously did the LG Optimus G Pro.

Tt´s not abour taking sides, I do believe that if between sister companies as Android phone manufacturers scramble lead to a growth of competition, mainly Apple that has been known for beginning these patent disputes that appear to have penetrated deep into the various companies. Added to this, Samsung already has a strong rivalry with Apple, some little accidental meetings with Google and now LG, it may be too much…
