Samsung gave Android users a few hours with the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE to learn how to use the S Pen. These Android users then took to the streets of Manhattan to face-off against Apple iPhone users one on one. in one task involving the editing of a customized birthday message on each users respective device, the female using the Apple iPhone (4 or 4S) said she was "Jealous" and "embarrassed" because of the functions on the Samsung phablet that were not on the iPhone. While the GALAXY Note LTE user took the S Pen and put his head on his cousin's favorite NBA star (Jeremy Lin?), the iPhone user could only stutter and say that she couldn't do these things with her device. "I'm not very happy right now, my phone can't do that," she says. "It's so depressing."
Of course, apologists for Apple complain that Samsung took a power user and put him head to head versus a casual smartphone user. Regardless, the video continues a trend by Samsung to go right after the Apple iPhone and its users. Samsung also revealed another ad that does something that Android fans have been dying to see for years. This ad simply shows off the features and functions of the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE in action. Just like the way Apple's television commercials for years have displayed the Apple iPhone in action, Samsung's ad leaves you drooling in front of the television, wishing that the smartphone fairy would drop the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE right in your lap.

Have you ever heard of amateur chefs? of casual sportsmen? No?
What the hell is a "casual smartphone user"? If you got a smartphone - that means that you intend to use it to it's full potential - cause if you don't - you just wasted a lot of money on something you don't really need.
So that woman there - yes - she can't do the things that guy can. And that's because of the fact that she got an iPhone - and not an Android phone. Not because she is a "casual smartphone user". It's like saying that your team lost in football because they are "casual players".
Oh and Alan - contrary to what you say - Apple commercials have never displayed something that only the iPhone can do. And that - would be due to the fact that there is nothing that only the iPhone can do - and Android can't. Just fyi.

By saying 'casual smartphone user' he really meant all Apple iPhone end-users, who can ONLY use their phone casually when connected to wi-fi or when they briefly [VERY BRIEFLY] pull out their iPhones in public at parties or restaurants just to identiFy with the other sheep; hence, 'casual smartphone user'. It's almost like a compulsive tick that someone with a nervous diSorder might have; notwithstanding, it's an uncontrollable involuntAry act.

Actually I have heard of both terms. What he was doing was breaking down a particular category even further. As a matter of fact, the majority of smartphone users would probably be considered casual users. Very few actually use their phones to 25% of their true capability. This is true for both platforms. Many who might take an issue with the commercial have good reason. The guy really knows how to use his device and was a Power User while the chick was basically a novice. I understand why Samsung did this, I mean its advertising. Either way, the Note looks great and will find a great niche within the Android community.
If you have even a minimal understanding in economics - which I'm sure you do not - you will realize that buying a product without utilizing it's fullest potential - limits the utility you have from that product - and is thus a waste.
So yeah - better remember it buddy. For every product you own which you don't fully utilize - there is another - cheaper product - which you could own - and fully utilize it.
You should have capitalized waste. I get the your, you're, and the there, their, they're mistakes, but really. Waist and waste? I'm not saying the others are excusable, but at minimum they are common. Most don't make the waist/waste mistake. Anyway, great posts.
Dear Ilia and 14545,
mwhahahahahahahahaha! You guys must be 25 years old, not each but together and your parents must be in the accounting business.
Let assume I have a minimal understanding in economics and in foreign languages (like english in my case, although speak and write almost correctly 4 languages), you're telling me that somebody that work his ass off all day, maybe putting up a business with sweat, blood and risking their own house have no right and PLEASURE to buy an expensive... what ever they want just because maybe they're not able to utilize it in its full potential? You guys are full of it, always with respect.
Go back to your Playstation and learn how to play every level of Super Mario otherwise you've WAISTed your money buying it.
....and when you're done playing have a taste of real life and re-read your posts.
If you're going to drive a Ferrari like a Toyota, why would you buy one? Your statement makes no sense. Unless you're buying it to be able to say "I drive a Ferrari"? Which, imo, most iProduct users do. Most would be just as well suited to a feature phone and save a buttload of money. And in my case, not cost me more money because of VZW having to pay out the butt to bring the phone to their network. I've seen the loss of many great perks since the iphone was brought over to VZW, such as NE2 going away, etc.
If you pay for a product - you are expected to utilize it to it's full capacity as much as possible. Because if you don't - you can buy a cheaper version of that product, and in the remaining money buy other products - which would increase your overall utility from the products you buy.
Of course when it comes to sports cars (oh and iPhones) - people spend stupid amounts of money just to show off.. in that case - they are absolutely stupid of course.
Not everyone in the world knows how to use their smartphone.
To date I have educated over 500 customers on how to do things on their android phone.
I have met a galaxy S II user who has never registered for the android market.
There is an entire generation of "Casual" smartphone users.
It is not because they are stupid, or wasteful with their money,
it is because they got a smartphone for free and nobody told them what it could do.
I would fit these people with an iphone, but in all honesty they should be using windows phone mango.
Perhaps one day we will all be casual smartphone users because phones will just make sense.
Thank you for your time.

apple keeps breaking records because they are the only choice if you want iOS. If apple had 10 companies making iOS, they wouldnt even be a blip on the radar with that little phone. Samsung is beating Apple most quarters now, WITH all the extra competition on their side.
Keep holding on to that "1 phone sales" mantra as long as you can. It's all that you have. lol.
remix I have said the same thing to countless apples fan that the reason why a single android device will never reach the sales of an ios device is because if you want ios apple gets all the sales where as if you want Android the sales are shared between many poems but apparently to many apple fans our logic is flawed.
Times have changed in the last year...there is nothing worse than trying to discuss phones with an android user. It seems the term "fanboy" has been taken to an all new level.
2 iphones are in fact, fighting an entire army of androids-98% of them are terrible as well. No matter which side you choose, Apple makes a great product. There has yet to be one android phone that even comes close to one apple phone. Thats the point they are making.

learn to count
there are 3 main versions 3gs, 4, 4s for sale.. then you have all their different models.. the 8,16,32, and 64 gig versions.. and if you want to get really fun, then you have to double that for CDMA/GSM counterparts. And why not. They count the galaxy1 and galaxy2 as different phones on every carrier, why not do the same with apple phones?
Oh yea, because then u wouldnt be able to hold on to that silly sales mantra.
we are talking a bout sales of devices not market share of an os which are two different thing. the point is if you want an ios device you must get an apple device.if you want android you can get htc,moto,samsung etc there for its pretty much impossible for example like the s2 to get sales of 20+million in a single quater as not only are they fighting for smartphone market share they are also fighting for android market share.if samsung gs2 was the only android phone in 2011 then it would be selling much more but because an android user can pick htc.moto etc not all android sales go to one company where as with ios all sales goes to apple.IF apple were to allow others to use ios then they would have more market share but most likely sales of apple based ios device would probably decline as people could choose to have either have an ios product made by another oem...apple went for volume of sales where they get all the sales and google went for world wide market share and to achieve that they had to let many people use there os as possible. hope that makes sense.

you could edit it with a simple drawing app and send it off. I think the point was to show how easy it was on the Note. That and most sheeple couldnt think of doing all that.. as evidenced by this lady being completely stumped.
21.greathero1(Posts: 563; Member since: 13 Jun 2008)
Wouldn't it just be easier for the other user to tap the search button and say "Navigate to (insert place)"? I am an Android user and would not want to waste my time drawing on a map when I can just use Navigation and in the iPhone's case Siri.
32.remixfa(Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
yes, but he was sending it to a friend. and technically, your still right because u can do the "navigate to" and then just take the quick screen shot and send that off. lol. there really was no need to draw it. your correct. :)

i dont know how people have lived without voice to nav and 3d navigation. people talk crap about googles voice commands because it doesnt give you a canned joke.. but what it has always given you is a lot of power in your hands.
I'm not explaining anything to someone in denial 'coz no matter what imma say, you won't get a crap. It'd be a waste of time!
This video talks by itself, but may be you're too stupid to get it by yourself? If so, well too bad for you.. =]

Childish as usual. Seeing from how you comment, you are the only one who is stupid bro. Most smartphone users are just like her across all platforms. Seeing how Android is the largest platform in the world, I think it would be safe to say that they would have more just like her than any of the latter.
@Tre-Nitty...This young women does not sound programmed, nor stupid; she is sincerely embarrassed - be it that she is not aware that there are not any apps available for her to do the tasks that are demonstrated in this video, or that her device simply isn't capable, she is embarrassed; and she is impressed of what the other device (so what if it is a Samsung, it could have just as easily been a Windows Phone, or some other device) could do that the iPhone cannot.
Can the iPhone(with or without an app) do all of the tasks demonstrated by the Samsung Note? If not, then don't attack the young lady in the video, especially if most iPhone users aren't aware, or use, such features.

The lady in the video felt embarassed by what the iPhone cant do compared to the Note and for good reason. This is one of the reasons why I really like this phone. Theres so much you can do with this phone and one of the few phones that you dont have get rid of within a year or so. As a former AT&T sales rep and cancellations rep, Ive seen so many people make frequent upgrades because as soon as they see something new, 6 months later here comes something else to top that................with the Note, there are nt alot of phones that can do what it can and its about time.
When I upgrade to the Note, i plan on keeping it for most if not all of my 2yr contract with AT&T because of what it can do: LTE connectivity, drawing capability, S-Pen, editing documents, update to ICS and many more. This is a phone worth getting and a better sell to the heavy Smartphone users than the Dell Streak (which we all know failed miserably lol)
