An Apple iPhone user is called out for whining in a new ad

Samsung has released three new commercials for its flagship Samsung Galaxy S III. Out of the trio of commerecials, only one takes a shot at the Apple iPhone. That commercial shows a guy and gal on a bus bench, both battling each other in some type of zombie-related game. When he loses, the guy starts complaining about the size of the screen on his Apple iPhone compared to the larger screen on his opponent's Samsung Galaxy S III. "How can I win?," asks the guy. "Your screen is like as big as my phone," he says. When the girl answers that not everything is about winning, the guy responds by saying, "I like to win." This elicits a response from the old lady on the end of the bench who has been observing the scene. She turns to him and say, "You like to whine." Was this sit-com moment Sammy's way of calling all Apple iPhone users whiny losers?

The other two ads are more sugary sweet. In one, a couple are on the couch and looking for some mood music, and his Samsung Galaxy S III starts spewing out the Spice Girls which is not exactly what she had in mind. With a tap of their Galaxy S IIIs and S Beam, a more appropriate tune is added to his phone. In the last ad, a businessman is getting into a cab for a ride to the airport when the wife uses S Beam to send him some video. The kids had made him a video to watch on the plane. How cute! How adorable! Then, the wife moves close to her hubby and whispers that she too made him a video. "You probably shouldn't watch it on the plane," she suggestively adds.

While not as much fun as those "Next big thing" spots, the ads do highlight features of the phone and we've always been a fan of that.

@Nadr1212: If the girl gets the iPhone, then we would call the commercial sexist.

It should be Jason Stathem and Daniel Craig playing. Then something has to blow up at the end.

Plus it's funnier when the more competitive boy is the one who loses out. That's kind of what they're going for. "Guys, don't get the iPhone cuz you can't win games" type thing

Maybe you are too sensitive.

In this case I would call him sarcastic instead of sensitive. ;)

Wow your faith in RIM deserves a free bb10 device when it comes out. I really hope for return to profitability but so doubtful.

nahh, both the Optimus G and the Razr HD's are better than the SIII.

I don't say that Samsung Galaxy S III is bad phone or something like that, it is personal choice but I also would choice LG Optimus G or Motorola Razr Maxx HD instead of Samsung Galaxy S III.

Eh idk about the RAZR HD, but the MAXX HD is for me. The Galaxy S3 has 2x the RAM and a bigger display, but that 3300 mAh battery makes the RAZR the clear choice for me, plus the build quality is nicer on the RAZR.

Also Motorola use very good radio components and GPS module! :)

"The Galaxy S3 has 2x the RAM and..."

Talking about my situation, I'm from Europe so in my case Samsung Galaxy S III has only 1 GB of RAM.

But there is also one consolidated thing which I don't like in Samsung Galaxy S III and Motorola Razr Maxx HD, it is OLED based display since I prefer LCD based displays. :\

+1 for you.

Yeah me too.That's something Motorola needs to consider to put on all carriers:VZ,ATT,Tmo & Sprint& maybe US Cellular and Metro

i guess the Razr HD is on even ground with the SIII with each offering trade offs to each other but the HD MAXX pulls Moto ahead.

I don't mean to rain on the Android (and iOS) fanboy parade, but twice the ram or faster processor and blah blah blah doesn't mean better performance. Specs aren't everything. The software is a huge contributor to performance. My 3 year old Pixie Plus lags a lot less than Ny aunts galaxy note. It depends on how efficient the OS itself is. Another example is how a Palm Pre at 600 Mhz isn't as fast as an iPhone at 600mhZ. Its because webOS is based on web technologies so it cant get much faster than it is. But anyway, my point is specs aren't everything, the software is just as important.

How is the Razr HDs display better? Because it has a couple and yes I mean a couple more pixels? Its still using the same super amoled display that they mind you, got from Samsung.

They are both good displays but yes I do agree that LGs display is better.

i personally prefer HDSA over the LCD's i've seen but that's completely subjective.
