New Samsung Galaxy S4 ad takes the usual shots at the Apple iPhone

0. phoneArena 03 May 2013, 20:42 posted on

It's a whole new year and a new phone, but same old Samsung as the Korean OEM once again takes its usual potshots at its number one rival from Cupertino; the action takes place at a graduation slash pool party and we see the usual showing off of Sammy's features such as Air View and gesture control as a call gets answered with a swipe of the hand...

He's just an HTC troll. He has created multiple accounts here; Irakli, Rayanx10, MariaGabriela and many more, in order to thumb up his own comments and thumb down the ones he dislike.

Oh I see that explains all the thumbs down. I was actually beginning to believe HTC fanboys were so desperate that they target anything Samsung related and tried their very hardest to bring it down.

You sure? To be quite honest, it seems to go both ways. ButiI for one like both, but hate how HTC fans behave. I do like the s4 more though.

S4 is the best smartphone ever in the history so far. And the way Sammy slapped fruit's face is so funny hahahhaa they know how to advertise lolz

Dude, dont be so junk,, if u are referring to the thermal test of gs4 d past month or weeks that is posted here in PA, the s4 was in good condition that barely gets hot and we cant change that.. all d review units are actually in good condtion that no reviewer mentioned screen, battery and heat problems..
I humbly addressing my concern to samsung now to make necessary actions regarding the concerns of the cusomers w/ faulty handsets(note: as i read forums there are gs4 w/o issues but only few).. i just want immediate solutions coz i want to continue my preorder. I recently cancld my preorder..
Dont start fan war if ur mature enough.

"All this features while nice on paper, 1 eat battery life.."
Nope, it doesn't.
Why don't you go check the battery tests on GSMArena?

"and 2 causes constant lag."
All reviews say that the GSIV(with S600) is one of the fastest Android out there, if not the fastest! And I bet the Exynos one is even faster!
I haven't tested it myself but from what I've seen on youtube, no lag whatsoever.

I don't need to see your video posted, I have used the phone try enabling all the features and you eat constant lag, check androidcentral as well they reported lag, it's even worst when you open the camera. And yes all the sensors will eat battery life ham arena tested it out of the box , but since out of the box features like air view are not enabled I am not sure that's a source you can trust

Like I've said many times before, those GSIV are defective ones.
Defective models among first batch is a common problem that concerns EVERY oems!

Now tell me about the nicks, gaps, loose buttons and stuck pixels of your HTC One.. =]

You people do actuall know that the s4 is not 100% plastic. Right? You know the screen is glass and the sides are metal, the back is the only plastic in the phone and it is plastic so you'll have a removable battery, SDcard slot, and a better signal strength.

Part right and part wrong. Our Sammy rep brought the S4 by my store yesterday for us to test out and the sides are indeed metal.

Looks metal, but it is not, I played with t and you can see reviewers reporting is not metal either, it doesn't even feel metal, a hint metal is cold, and no sign of that

s4 is obviously better than ip5 when it comes to power and features. however, this formula is getting old. it may backfire soon. samsung should start becoming classy now that they're reached the top. offensive ads like these are less likely to invite iOS users to shift.

I actually had this happen this weekend. I took a video and a friend with an iphone asked me to send it to him. I tried using gmail & outlook but those had size restrictions that wouldn't allow me to send it to him. Later on one of my other friends' asked if I had tried the S Beam function. Since I don't know anyone else around here who has an S3, I hadn't had the opportunity to try it. The nearest town has a population of 1400, is mostly older folks, but I do see a few smartphones here and there (mostly dumbphones and older android & iphones). So I turned on the S Beam function & tapped it to her phone. Within about a minute the 50mb file was on her phone. Worked simply and easily. For my iphone friend I'm gonna have to upload it to my computer & use a program like hjsplit to send it to him in parts & he can rejoin it later. It's too bad that all phones don't have a universal function like this, would make thing a lot easier.
