Just because a Samsung phone shows suggestions for words while typing doesn't necessarily mean it has infringed the Apple patent in question, and just because the iPhone has a similar feature doesn't necessarily mean it's covered by the Apple patent.
Whether infringement has taken place is one of the major questions in front of the jury. The other, should infringement be found, is how much Samsung should pay Apple both for lost sales and royalties.
The case is 12-00630, Apple vs. Samsung Electronics et al, at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in San Jose.
