Samsung getting snarky at Apple again, this time about apps

Apart from its ad that was subtly mocking people waiting in line for an iPhone and went viral the other day with more than two million YouTube views, Samsung has another one in store...

Keep it up, Samsung! :)

Smart people never stand in lines. Because Smart people use Android. And because of that - Smart people don't have to stand in line to buy just one type of phone. They can choose which one they like.

Haha~! This ad is ridiculous. Trying to fight Apple at its own game. Hmm...how about. Infinity Blade. Oops, don\'t have it. Tap Tap Revenge. Oops, don\'t have it either. Oh, your screen just dimmed. Haha...naa, joking.

If you want mobile games - buy an iPhone.

If you want everything else - including a lot of stuff iPhone doesn't have - buy an Android phone.

Oh, almost forgot. If you want your phone to NOT look and feel exactly like everyone else's phone - buy an Android phone.

This post and any other post similar to this is dumb, even if the iphone only change the back cover of their phone it's still a choice and regardless how much everyone praise android every phone by itself is beaten by one phone on one carrier alone.....the only way android have a chance against one phone that comes out once a year is to make 50 android phones a year......I have a android, but I just hate this post its dumb, everyone has a choice to like what they prefer, I like free apps, so call me cheap I don't care I will still buy a android to get my app fix unless Windows 7.5 or 8(next year) phone bring me some free apps, but seriously leave apple alone they obviously doing something right even if it were one or two changes made...

So you're saying that even if there is only one choice - it's still a choice. You know, Stalin kinda said that as well.

How many people have the iPhone? Millions by now. Is it feasible to say that all of them want to have exactly the same phone with exactly the same User interface? No. Each and everyone of them would benefit greatly from an actual choice of different models, different specs and different price ranges, not to mention different user interfaces and tweaks.

Just like the fact that two different people almost never wear the same clothes.

that is a misnomer. if the iphone came in different flavors (not just this years model and last years model) then it wouldnt consistantly be the #1 seller. Its single model sales are so high because you have only one choice if you want a top of the line iOS device.
The individual iphone models are no longer beating the individual android models by the huge margins they used to. They are still winning, for sure, but its not like it was. Last year's big iphone numbers were a near even split between the top end i4 and the free 3gs. This year its going to be split between 3 phones (i4s, i4, 3gs) and if they break it down to CDMA and GSM like they do android models, it will be split even more.

the point is, for the last year, Apple's market share has been all but stagnant, while Android has climbed to 50% of the smartphone market all by itself.

You can look at OS numbers, you can look at individual phone numbers, or you can look at market share numbers.
in 2 of 3, android is trouncing apple.... and phones like the SGS1 and SGS2 are getting closer to apple in total sales.

Actually there was an article today saying that there is a possibility of Infinity Blade coming to Android. Also, Tap Tap Revenge IS available for Android. Why don't you go look it up for yourself in the Android market?

1 Android doesnt need your retina cause its steps behind super amoled plus....
2 Not faster??? it dual core.... Research first... ok? use your brain... oh wait you dont have one... maybe you can buy a brain in your app store..
3 iOS is for iphone only and cant be used by any other phone be apple wont allow it.. seriously... you need to buy a brain at the app store...
4 Siri is just an improvement from google... because goole has that already...
5 no best camera??? 8mp?... then your iphone does not have the best camera too pr*ck...
6 At least the brick that you are refering to is tough not like your rectangular glass that you have in your pocket right now... if drop that iphone it's over for you unless you have insurace on your phone which is $99.99 for 1 year... oh wait it does not cover lost or stolen phones.... unlike android phones...
7 IPHONE doesnt even have 4g... so much for internet browsing and downloading... and dont start up that it has wifi... almost every android phone has wifi..

I'm loving this. Finally a AD that doesn't take itself too seriously but makes very valid points. Great job from a great cast from a great company for a great product.

Kudos Samsung!

This was a very funny ad. "I can get apps for it." "My niece's s**tty Boost Mobile phone can get apps on it."

It would be funny if Samsung did another commercial where one of the Apple fans says of the iPhone: "it has 3G and the Wifis." :D

I had the debate the other day with one of my employee\'s about how your stuck with one type of phone and things only work one way with no way of personalizing besides the fact you can change the wallpaper (whoop de doo) and you can move around your apps.

If i wanted to be told what to do with my phone and only use it with one dimension, then the iphone is for me but I enjoy customizing and also free apps or getting apps for free and music,

Samsung you rule Galaxy s 2 here I come.

while Sammy does this..Apple keeps selling the iphone and breaking sales records.. and care less about the cheap shots from Samsung as they get Samsung in court.. where it counts... the camping outside Apple stores to give aways the SGSII didnt work.. and now they are mocking Apple.. when they should be concentrating on promoting their nexus phone....and learn from the Bionic..

I have to admit these commercials are pretty funny. Unfortunately it's the gs2 to back them up. Why not just get the real thing and go iPhone?

posted on 25 Nov 2011, 23:11 5

45. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)

yes, because the real thing is the smaller, fatter, heavier, easily broken, slower, does less and costs more... phone.

oh its real because it has a shiney apple logo on it. lol. if you put a case with an apple logo on the SGS2 does it become "real"?? :)

46. dmakun (Posts: 320; Member since: 06 Jun 2011)

I was tempted to give you a thumbs up for the first time ever for acknowledging the commercial was funny but then you had to spoil it by coming up with the 'real thing'. Dude, you really are like the 3 fumbling friends in this ad!

Which explains why I just love this advert, There are people who know better but continue to stay slavish to ONE OS. Don't get me wrong, I respect Taco's affection to IOS but to deny the quality of the competition so that you can believe your is better is stupid.

I need someone to convince me that IOS is infact better than android cos I still see dozens of features on android that is yet to be implemented on IOS.

"Real thing" Huh? So the GS2 isn't a real phone?
