Such an intense number has Apple seeking totals like $205,814,496 USD from the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch and another whopping $209 million+ from the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II. Surprisingly though it's not the plain-old Galaxy S or the Galaxy S II that has the star of the show, it's the Samsung Captivate.

This little gem, the Samsung Captivate, was the first Samsung Galaxy S unit to hit AT&T back in 2010 for a whopping $199.99. That included a 4-inch display, 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, and a fabulous 5 megapixel camera on the back. This was back when we were still on Android 2.1 right out of the box, as well. Apple says that they lost $204 million+ in profits as a result of this device while Samsung's profits, design, and trade dress equaled out to be nearly $81 million.

Several other devices worth pointing out on the big list of "Apple's Damages Per Samsung Product" are the Galaxy Ace, Galaxy S (i9000), and Galaxy S II (i9100). No statistics currently exist for these devices, the latter two being the international editions of both devices while the Galaxy Ace was also released mostly outside the United States.
