Samsung calls Apple iPhone user a whiny loser in one of three new ads
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.

nice reply grammy, he does like to whine

@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.

Settle down... blackberry 10 looks already outdated, the interface was already used *webOS*

to be neutral, i love new comer to mobile OS market, but BB10 is a new OS that need at least 2 years for mature

nahh, both the Optimus G and the Razr HD's are better than the SIII.
14. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5465; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
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.
26. mas11 (Posts: 1028; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
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.
28. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5465; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
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.
48. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6220; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
i wish the RAZR was on AT&T as on every other carrier sigh :(
54. archangel9 (Posts: 230; Member since: 07 Feb 2010)
Yeah me too.That's something Motorola needs to consider to put on all carriers:VZ,ATT,Tmo & Sprint& maybe US Cellular and Metro
49. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5557; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
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.
47. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 2940; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
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.
50. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5557; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
i personally prefer HDSA over the LCD's i've seen but that's completely subjective.

5. jaoowolabi (Posts: 201; Member since: 07 Jun 2012)
to be honest i thought this war was over when the iP5 came out.... i mean like the 4s was an iphone i like and was good but the iP5 is not any goood.... its just faster

It's sad that Samsung has to resort to these tactics. Isn't enough that the manufacturer of the other company has to scramble to fix wi-fi issues so that people can FaceTime™ without their video calls dropping; not to mention the P.R. campaign said company has paid for, whereby they have infused internet web articles to help them argue that all cameras take Purple-Rain lovely lavender photos; or, the embarrassment of hordes of brand new phones with out-of-the-box factory defects.
Samsung should just let the devil burn in Hades for Father Time will be his undoing!

the war won't be over until one of them completely keels over. by the looks of things, i really doubt it'll be samsung.

43. KParks23 (Posts: 446; Member since: 13 Oct 2010)
Actually the ip5 has the brighter screen by ALOT I tested my s3 vs a coworkers io5.. The other 2 commercials were pretty funny I've done the date night one a time or 2 and had that look haha!

Nice I need a wife that makes video with a S3 that I shouldn't watch on the plane
33. tedkord (Posts: 4486; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
My wife texted me at work the other night that she was horny, and wished I was home. I went in the bathroom MMSed her a picture of my junk. Do you think this was what they had in mind when the smartphone was invented?

Not a huge fan of the S3 commercials.. It seems like you're stooping low when you're resorting to attacking a competitors phone. Showcase the features, quit stereotyping iPhone users and let the consumer decide which phone is best for them.
30. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5465; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
Also it is low when you lie for consumer like Apple does.
59. VZWuser76 (Posts: 1286; Member since: 04 Mar 2010)
Apple does it as well, they're just more subtle. The ad about how the 4" screen is common sense because you can reach all of the corners is a jab at any oem who makes a phone with a larger screen. That's just the most recent one I've seen.
27. JulianGT (Posts: 82; Member since: 15 Oct 2012)
Not everyone likes big screens, if just the galaxy s 3 mini had the same specs as the s3...
34. tedkord (Posts: 4486; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Those were so-so. I prefer the line of sheep commercials.
36. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6220; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
Ok 1st commercial hilarious old lady says YOU'RE A WHINNER and yes ifans are whinners. 2nd commerical ARE U SERIOUS WITH THAT SONG SPICE GIRLS?? LMAO. then his gf send him a romantic song XD. 3rd commercial curious what the wifey share to her hubby phone
44. osaFromJava (Posts: 34; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
third video makes me curious though...@.@
46. JC557 (Posts: 943; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
After encountering various Mac heads and iFans that love to rip on anyone using a "PC" or Android phone back in 2009-10 this is very much deserved.
Smug pieces of s**t should wipe the smirk off their hipster faces.
51. PM8888 (Posts: 10; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
The third ad is the best of the 3. I would prefer Samsung to focus on what the S3 can do as opposed to taking shots at Apple. The second and third ads are clever at showing off nice features of the phone.
