Yes, lots of Android and kids. You can always tell by the immature responses. Where as The Verge and Engadget people from both side ingage in intelligent exchange of ideas and opinions. Having said that, their responses keep me amuse.

Samsung gives you the option to voice your choice. You may select iPhone or Nokia or HTC. If it was an ad by Apple, you won't even have option to comment. Just check any apple videos on youtube. All videos have comments disabled. somebody is afraid that you will say something that they don't want!

of course they would. 99% of iphone users are on facebook lol.

I admit i have a facebook but i probably go on once a month if that.

I personally would take my Samsung Galaxy S3 hand down.

Its hard for samsung to compete on facebook as a high percentage of iphone users only use their phones to make calls, take pictures and socialize on facebook!

So... samsung.. you picked the wrong place to place that poll!

This. Run the same poll on Google+ and get different results. While it is embarrassing, I wouldn't put too much into it.

there is problem with this pic. having liked this page, i know when samsung posts something it gets 1000's of comments in no time even before getting likes. this pic shows 40,000 likes and only 7 comments. probably morphed pic.

and i did check the page 2 days ago when this news went viral. even though the post was weeks old, it still got comments by users saying Iphone5 which showed it was underattack from apple fans.

Wouldn't be surprised if there were articles or comments on dedicated Apple sites encouraging people to spam the poll. I've seen dumber things happen on the internet.

That's cause the iSheep will always stick with the same old tired design, tiny screen. We galaxy S3 owners along with other non iPhone users all know that it's just a glorified iPod to these people. Hell the galaxy s2 has better tech then iPhone and that's been out for over a year!!!!
GO SAMSUNG!!!! I love their new commercial!!!!

Pathetic. It's obvious why people will pick iPhone. The largest segment of consumer market comprises of normal consumers who have no need for the complexity of Android. No offence but Android just doesn't appeal to the majority of the rich normal consumer.

Call Samsung win Apple with largest market share but deep down, you already know who's king with Apple bagging in >50% profits. We're more willing to give our money to Apple than Samsung cause we all know S3 or whatever is gonna become obsolete in 6 months and software support will only last for 12 months. With Apple, we are at least sure we will get 36 months of software support. Ask 3GS users, they will tell you.

P.S. Don't call the grape sour just because you're unable to eat it. Why make yourselves look so pitiful. Seriously.

I'd pick an iPhone over an SIII, music is HUGE to me and the iPhone offers a LOD, however the GSIII offers a usb out, which works with curtain portable dacs, but I dunno if it works with audio devices (some android devices do) I personally would GREATLY prefer a SONY walkman phone based off the Sony Walkman X (google it, Magnesium frame glass front and acrylic back always thought the iPhone 4 and 4s should have has acrylic or Lexan backs) Imagine that mp3 player but with a 4.3in edge to edge screen a 2000mah battery and a modest processor (battery life is crucial for a music phone 40 hours music play time would be excellent, a modified Tegra w 4g compatibility would be nice, maybe a an OMAP 1.2ghz, I see no reason for more power than that) 1.5 gb of RAM (in my experience when a phone runs out of RAM it crashes, my RAZR never has however, and it only has a gig, so the ram isn't so important for this device) now this fictional Walkman phone would be my perfect desert island companion.
