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

0. phoneArena 23 Feb 2012, 05:18 posted on

A real live Apple iPhone user is "jealous" and "embarrassed" as the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE can do things that her phone can't thanks to the S Pen that allows GALAXY Note LTE owners to edit pictures and do things that those using the iPhone can't do...

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.

To repost my findings from the other day, there are 43 iphone variants currently on sale in the US compared to 21 Galaxy phone series (from Galaxy S all the way to Galaxy Note & Skyrocket HD)

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.

Well... you can also screenschot a map with the iPhone, draw lines with a basic app and send it for FREE to another iDevice, so...

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.

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.

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. :)

There is nothing greater than Voice to Navigation on Android. Absolutely nothing!

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.

The iphone is not even able to do simple task like sending files via bluetooth, now comparing it to that huge BEAST.. Well, no surprise here!

No, how about you explain yourself instead of pulling a generalization out of your rear.

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.. =]

He cant help himself. These dudes are so blinded by their hate for Apple that most of them don't actually sit back and pay attention to what they type.

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)
