(NBC) -- The jury in the Apple vs Samsung trial fell firmly on Apple's side, ruling many of Apple's patents were valid on Friday.



The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion. Apple wanted $2.5 billion as it accused Samsung of ripping off the design technology of iPhones and iPads.



One of the few things that went in Samsung's favor was that the jury found Samsung's tablets violated fewer intellectual properties than its mobile devices.



The patent violations included the bounce-back and the pinch-and-zoom functions, according to NBC Bay Area's Scott Budman, the latter in all but three phones.



The jury said Samsung knew or should have known it was violating Apple's patents, Budman tweeted.



CNBC reports that Samsung has requested 30 additional minutes to review the verdict. Apple countered that less time is actually needed.



Judge Lucy Koh gave the jury 100 pages of instructions on Tuesday. The jury worksheet included 20 pages of questions to be answered -- each question had subsections, too, leading to a total of more than 700 to answer.



Jurors were provided dozens of mobile devices to examine, as well, including the iPhone -- the heart of the case. A swift verdict was unexpected.



Apple is seeking $2.5 billion in damages, claiming that Samsung violated various patents Apple owns around iPhones and iPads. Samsung denies any wrongdoing and has counter-sued.



The courtroom has been anything but dull (except for the monotony of the patents themselves). Judge Koh has been chiding both sides of the argument, and there was even a threat of sanctions against Samsung.



Apple alleged that Samsung was trying to show excluded evidence to the jury. Koh denied Apple's emergency filing, however.



In some cases, Apple maintained during the trial, Samsung revised old patents in an attempt to make money. Standards rules generally require participating companies to warn the standards body if the ideas under consideration contain patents that would benefit a company unfairly.



Google, who has sued Apple in its own infringement claim, has been aiding its Android partner, Samsung, during the trial as well. As the three titans duke it out in court, Silicon Valley is waiting to see how it all shakes out.



Since the Apple vs Samsung includes look-and-feel patents, Apple's competitors could be severely limited in just how they design their competing devices. On the other hand, some argue that those same limitations would drive innovation, creating even harsher competition for the iPhone.



Coincidentally, Friday's verdict is also the anniversary of Steve Jobs' retirement from Apple.
