Samsung heads to the street to challenge the Apple iPhone with the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE

Samsung heads to the street to challenge the Apple iPhone with the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE
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.

ah, i don't know..this all iphone comparison campaign seems way off.. the most striking fact about the Note is that it's HUGE.
It just can't compete for the usual iphone customers.

but for handheld multimedia-communication-entertainment-productivit​y, this device is also HUGE.

overall, the best thing you can put in your pocket

Although Note has S pen,how could the big Note be an alternative for comparatively small iPhone?
Samsung Galaxy SII could have been better alternative.

If it was the galaxy s2 or s3 versus the iphone I would lend my ears.
But when the galaxy note is as big as my face sorry no.

Nice thing abut using the Note is the fact that as it's so large it'd be easy for multiple people to see what's going on with the phone, versus the itty bitty one on the iphone. The S-Pen is a bonus

Wait wait wait wait wait Alan.

Did you just say "casual smartphone user"?

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.

@ ilia. So, you're basically saying don't buy a computer if you're not going to, or not able to use it like a geek or a Nasa engineer.

OR don't buy a Ferrari if you're not a pilot.
OR don't buy a $5000 guitar if you're not a pro player.
Don't waist your money, you're not worth that much, why buy it!

BTW I'm more and more liking Android phones, but I'm not good as you using all its potential, should I buy it or stick with a Motorola Razor (the old one, the flip phone)?

That make sense, thanks for the suggestion, I'll remember it.

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.

LOL kids.

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.

Are you serious or you're f***ing kidding me?

He is serious. And so am I.

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.

Cool! Thanks, I missed that until today.

3 + 5 = 8 - 2 = 6 That's so clear!

Enjoy your theory, in twenty years, when you experience some life, let's talk again.

Dear ilia,

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.

Oh, they got a smartphone for free? Well - in that case my statement is not valid.

But hey - I live in a country where the only thing you get for free is traffic tickets from the police, so..

So yeah - if they got their phone for free - or paid for it the same price as for a feature phone - I take my words back. I just didn't know such things actually existed anywhere on the globe.

Samsung continues to look like a bitter ex. While they continue to try to discredit apple and prove their better, apple just keeps breaking records.

Samsung has ALREADY proved it's better when it chose Android.

Sales records just show how Apple manipulates the hearts and minds of the public.

Wow, how ignorant do you sound. So they've manipulated themselves into billions. You wouldn't? They have advertised and made awesome products. Samsung does the same thing dummy.

I never said I wouldn't I just said that that's what happened. It's all a matter of marketing. That sets how well a product is going to be sold.

How well is the product actually going to be? Well - that's an entirely different thing.
