I'm a bit surprised to read this from you, I totally agree with what you say, the time is now, and if not now, very soon.

I'm not the fanboy people think I am, I'm more of a straight shooter. I like apple, but I think they've lost their edge. Samsung has come from the eternity in 08 to the note 2 in 2012. Apples come no where near that far in innovation. I call it like I see it, and I see Samsung taking over. By the way I typed this from my note 2

I own both an ipad and a note 2 and the hatred for apple is mindboggling. You people take it personal and its actually quite sad. It's a TELEPHONE.

With that said, I went from I5 to Note 2 and will never look back. :P

I also own the ipad, and note 2 and still have my ip5. The note 2 is awesome, I will never part with my ipad tho, except for a newer one. On another note, my fiancé sold her ip5 and got the htc 8x. That phone rocks.i had no idea wp8 was that good

Dude im really shocked tho, I've been playing with her 8x and its great. Smooth fluid responsive, and sexy. Has a voice asst. Multitasking great camera u name it, its got it. Only thing I hate is its only got 16gigs and no sd slot. For me that's a deal breaker. My notes only 16 but I have a 32 gig sd n it, and the file manager lets me move what u want to the sd. Game changer is the note 2

we have these what i call super fans lol in android,windows,nokia...these people take personal offence when someone doesnt like what device or os they are using...these people dont realise that not everyone has the same taste...i remember when the note was announced people laughed saying no one wants a phone that big,what these people think is that hey thats rubbish so everyone must hate it not realising whats too big for someone can be too small for someone else....you usually see hatred for the companies that are doing well and atm its apple and samsung and they get alot of hate compared to otheres and its usually by super fans of fans of htc or nokia...i will say i have not come across too many sony or motorola fans.

It is really surprising how many dumb people are still there, who are willing to give $800-900 for a piece of cheap, breakable asian electronics with buggy, stolen OS. Amazing. For such pile of money you could buy Apple, BB, Nokia, even HTC is better. Really amazing.

I'm sorry, what now? "Cheap..." Apple profits more from its electronics. Should tell you that Samsung actually spends more on their phones. "Breakable..." someone brought in an iPhone 5 recently that was in a case, was dropped on its back, and the front screen still shattered. "Asian..." Shouldn't knock Asian stuff. As much as I dislike Toyota and Honda, for instance, they get top rank for dependability. Also, iPhones are made in China. That's about as azn as it gets. "Buggy, stolen OS..." Really? In daily usage my original Note displays very little in the way of bugs or issues. It's not completely perfect, but then again, neither is iOS. And stolen? From who?

Blackberries have no redeeming qualities outside their email interface at present. Apple is okay, but not nearly worth as much as people seem to think. Nokia makes good hardware, but they need to pull their heads out of Ballmer's ass and diversify. And yes, HTC makes good stuff.

However, Samsung's done a good job of marketing their products and at this point their higher end phones do have a track record of working to a good extent. They're even converting a fair share of iPhone lovers. Perhaps even you might like an S3.

You're honestly going to tell me that no company besides Samsung has ever poked fun at a competitor?


Samsung balances out the "attacking" with showcasing their own product's features and advantages. So yeah, good marketing.

I mean, up until the Galaxy S commercials the only *good* Android phone commercial I ever saw was for the original Droid, which incidentally ALSO "attacked" the iPhone while addressing a perceived weakness of the Droid and turning it into a strength:


Between the Samsung commercials and that piece of awesomeness, all we really saw were Verizon's commercials, which I personally liked for their ballsy sci fi ness, but which I knew would not resonate with most people who already are pretty f**king afraid of technology:





And then there was this commerical, which again I personally liked, but which didn't really resonate with audiences either:


Samsung started out strong with this commercial, which I remember being seen in movie theaters:


And then kept their marketing completely down to earth with their Next Big Thing ads, which I've already covered.

Oh yeah, the overlong responses from Sniggly are back! for a limited time only.

Don't drag in the historic sales into this "battle". In that case Nokia is still the king of the hill..
