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

The screen turned off is probably to show that it looks just like the Iphone 4 and 4S. Can you really tell if Iphone 5 is not written on the ad?

True, they look the same from the front TBH. Also, don't like the fact that there isn't NFC on the iPhone 5. It would have been a great feature.

plastic is only good for light weight. it's not easy to get damage when light thing drop down. however plastic does not look premium as others material and that is my main concern when choosing a high-end phone.

Very nice, but what Samsung is missing, is that they are challenging country not apple only.
It will not be far from apple to sue them for that. And we all know who will be the Winer.

When I'm sitting at home banking on my iPhone, recording a vid to post to YouTube, Facebook, twitter, or to text to someone. When I'm sending an email, text tweet or iMessage. When I'm taking pics, setting calander events or reminded by voice or using a turn by turn nav app. When I'm making dinner reservations, show reservations, or a rental car. When I'm viewing Espn vids, making a note or syncing my files, when I'm listening to music, downloading music, or surfing the web. When I'm using cut copy paste, emoticons, saving or sending an image from the web. When I'm using apps, playing games, making a call by voice or using voice for various functions. When I'm using my iPhone for the 100's of things it does do u think I or any iPhone user is worried about quad core, ram, or other specs? No it's the overall user experience that I'm worried about. Enjoy your top notch iPhones, and top notch android devices people these devices r all outstanding and shouldn't cause the disrespect they r involved in. My best friend swears by Htc android devices I love him to death, and we never bicker about phones. We do bicker about Yankees/sox though lol. U guys have fun and I expect tons of thumb downs on this post. Y'all enjoy your day I hope my steelers beat the jets

I'm pro apple pro android pro tech. my point is enjoy your device dude that's it. A simple point. People don't care about what's outdated or lower spec'd dude. People need to bank, text, call there kids, call work, or just b in touch with the world. People want to root, have widgets, customize, and argue on PA. People jus need a phone that works for them their kids and their needs bro. I used to b a big mouth bashing android n defense of apple, and apple in defense of android but I see that that's pointless man. This Friday millions will line up to get the ip5. When the note2 drops millions will get it too. And we'll all use them while we work play an pay our taxes. C'mon man really? iPhone outdated android glitchy iPhone screen to small android to laggy. Who cares bro really who cares? iPhone sells like hot cakes, android sells like hotcakes. Android crashes iPhone crashes. Android battery dies iPhone battery dies. Android big time os iPhone big time os. When people buy their phone dude the jus want what they like. Who cares?

well you cant talk for everyone , some actually care what there phone has inside and what specs. and also when spending that kind of money some people want the best they can get.

i just find it funny how your know trying to come across the vioce of reason when earlier you were defending apple so your point sort of falls flat there....

but if your suddenly become pro tech fine this site needs more people who like tech. see how long it lasts

Also as the voice of reason I'll defend android too dude. Android f'n rocks to b quite honest, it's come a tremendously long way and is just as good as iOS in my book. I primarily use iOS cuz I'm so deeply vested in it and see no need to change it as my go to os.

does it matter what phone i use? but if you must know i have the nokia 808

i love symbian but main reason is nokia are excellent when it comes to build quality and there mobile phones camera's are the best around without question and i like having an exceptional camera with me at all times.easier then carrying both a phone and camera

280. darkkjedii (Posts: 11063; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)


nokia build quality is top notch. I tried the e71 for a short time and liked it but wanted a touch screen so I returned it in 08 I think. Can't go wrong with Nokia didn't meant to pry either my bad.

nope no prob just this site makes you always think a fanboy will appear and another pointless argument will follow

i had a mate who threw his 6230 up a wall...thing survived amazingly . nokia have always been experts at build quality.

just look at the 3310 , that will survive a sledgehammer

Also bro the camera is one of the main reasons I like the iPhone. In my line of work I'm out and about in las Vegas all the time cuz I instruct students in driving buses. I love the fact that I can shoot vids and send them with out having to limit for mms first. The iPhones point shoot and send ability is really cool. I'm talking about sending as a text also. On most phones u have to go into the camera select li
It for mms and then record a short clip to send. Also I like that I can edit video and send exactly what I want some one to see. I think that's cool.

posted on 16 Sep 2012, 17:43

283. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


yeah well it depends on the size of video and quality. but been able to send off of one device is an advantage.

never sent videos round so dunno about settings etc or what devices have better and easier sending capability.

is mms easier then email now? or you use both

284. darkkjedii (Posts: 11063; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)


To me mms is easier cuz it goes rite to the phone. Some people don't have email, or don't have it set up in their phone but a text is gonna go rite to the number so for me it's a lil easier. Email will let u send a bigger file tho. I'm really into mobile photography

285. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


well same here, into photography which is why i love the 808, the loseless zoom has become a necessity for me. plus even an amatuer like me can take pics that looks great/almost professional.

before I switched to android, i was an ip4 user.. my first android phone was th s2 white.. the batt life was too short for me.. screen was amazing but the design of the phone was kind of disturbibg to me because it looked like a cheap plastic 4.3inch iphone so after that i bought a Gnexus.. i was happy AT FIRST after few weeks I realized i really like the iphone's full integration of the software to my mac (also have windows) and the feel. i didn't like the Samsung's way of backing up online and so.. in the end, I wouldn't say iPhone is superior.. the ip5 looks great but the looks of the gs3 gives me the impression that your money spent to it is more worth it than the ip5.. i just prefer iphone but I like the revamped gs3 and the lockscreen wallpaper.. it doesn't look like a nerdy phone but it looks like an HD Tv and smart and innovative. the ip5 looks pike a more sophisticated accessory at the back but on the front it's just the same.
just my honest opinion....

To me these devices r only superior to the people that use them. Most people can care less about specs, but specs r the holy grail for others and that's cool too. If it suits ur needs just fine then it's superior for u and that's what really matters n the end. This is y android and iOS r so successful. They cater to, and perform well for their own sector.

Always with the afford it...why you do not buy unlocked international version you get anywhere from 99-149 on contract iPhones, geesh this is not a question of cost, it is of value. You are paying premium phone prices for 1 year old tech. I wish you apple idiots (not all apple fans just the blind retarded ones) would wise the f**k up and demand a more appropriate price for old tech.

6. SuperMaoriBro has given an excellent point and opinion rarely been seen on Phonesites.
From my point of view : we should respect each other's taste and comfotability. But one thing we should consider, " How long you want to continue with almost the same looking model" ? I mean will you be happy to use the same model car and from same manufacturer.
Most Apple users agree that Apple is mostly the symbol of their "STATUS" and like the thing happened and see when it was Nokia and Nokia users used to be proud. They boasted with "N-Series",remember ?

It is not a problem if they are happy with their expensive outdated new phone
the problem is apple is very aggressive and doesnt let in peace the manufacturers who propose much better phones
that's why i hate apple
