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

0. phoneArena 24 Oct 2012, 18:26 posted on

Three new commercials have been released by Samsung for the Samsung Galaxy S III and only one of them takes a shot at the Apple iPhone; the other two ads show a couple sharing music and sharing videos as the Korean manufacturer shows a kinder and gentler side...

@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

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

49. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5620; 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
