Here's the ad Samsung is running against the iPhone 5 launch nationwide

0. phoneArena 15 Sep 2012, 16:40 posted on

The ad shows the Apple iPhone 5, turned off, and with the main features listed underneath, and then the Samsung Galaxy S III in all its glory against it, with a list of its own features listed below. As you can easily guess, the Galaxy S III list is much longer for a purpose, and there is a big fat title at the top saying "It doesn't take a genius"...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Samsung is looking really desperate now. When you focus this much attention on another company you look ridiculous. If your product is better, it'll speak for itself. Samsung is by far the most jealous company I have ever seen. Give it a rest already.

Evidently, some people just feel better by insulting others. Since last February I've owned the Galaxy Nexus, International GSIII, AT&T HTC One X, and AT&T GSIII (in that order), but since I kept going back to my iPhone 4S and Pre-ordered the 5 I'm a "sheep" too. To that I say,
I'm a proud educated "sheep" that know which cell phone works (and may work) best for me.

I commit to what's best for me.
Based on the phones I prefer I guess I'll fall in the apple camp.
I'm not close minded though. I won't stop trying Androids because I like the iPhones.

You are so dry!!!!! I Can't believe it returning to the iphone and you are proud!!!!! Stale and uninnovative and boring ios. GS3 you rock all the way!!!!

Dry? Sure whatever.
I like what works for me. I also wear shirts that have holes for my arms/body/head.
It's not that innovative but it sure works.
Through my experience I found iOS works better than GS3. I won't deny that iOS' smoothess is unmatched, no matter what the spec sheets are.
Yes, I've owned enough variants of the GS3 to call it as it is. GS3 rocks, better than all androids out there, but it just so happens it doesn't run as smooth as my 4S.

okay, maybe the sheep was overboard, i was mad... i apologize.
but still can't wait in line though, prefer buying from airports, since i travel every month, i get it then without having to wait in line... plus, you get international versions, so no carrier bulls**t, and you get awesome deals!
no offense tho

darkkjeddi apparently you have every phone out the way you go on, when in fact i bet you just say that to try and give your pro apple crap more force.

and you saying you met your girl there, funny becuase on a differant article you said you like waiting inline and you mite meet a cute girl...........so you have a girl but your hoping to meet a girl..............something dont add up

back to the phones if you happy to wait in line for last years phone go ahead but dont put crap trying to justify it

lool at the phones I stated the list goes back to 07 with the palm treo, and back up till now. I've had lots of phones over the years...that's my point. I prefer iOS though, and yes I met her waiting n line (mite meet a cute chick) is generalizing based on meeting her.

So do you find the 4" screen better? How do you find the the phone. Objectively of course.

I had the 4 and my sisters the 4S. It's just so small. And all our home buttons became desensitized after a year and have to install an onscreen home button.

Now I'm with Lumia 900 and my sisters One X and SGIII.

Screen size doesn't matter as much as overall performance, but I prefer a larger screen. 4 isn't as nice as 4.3-4.8, but it is what it is. I like em all but once again I prefer iOS.

im guessing your not very much into tech and been able to customize to your own preferences.

so now you prefer a larger screen but i bet when the 4s was out you were telling everyone its the perfect sized screen and you dont need anything bigger.

see ifans always changed there opinions when apple do , and they wonder why people call them sheep. atleast with even the most crazed fandroids most can admit when a phone isnt what they were hoping for or just not as good as they claim but apple users believe whatever apple tell them.
