Apple and Samsung disagreed on the value of each others patents at a settlement conference last week, reports Reuters.

Last Monday, ahead of their trial that begins July 30th, Apple CEO Tim Cook participated in mediation with Samsung's Vice Chairman Choi Gee-sung and mobile chief Shin Jong-Kyun to see if they could resolve their differences.
