Samsung makes fun of Apple fans in new ad

0. phoneArena 22 Nov 2011, 23:28 posted on

A new 60 second spot by Samsung depicts Apple fans as being sheep, something that Android users have accused them of being; the ad is supposed to show a line of Apple iPhone users waiting for the iPhone 4S, discussing the phone's sketchy battery life and the lack of a new hardware design...

well my comment on the commercial is that .... the SGSII has been out since June (excuse me US) **cough** since September and nothing has happened.... Chamsung has been releasing a SGSII variant every month to see if it excite anyone...hmmmm.. the HTC and now Moto has stole their thunder... the next big thing.. vs.. if you dont have an iphone...well you dont have the iphone....hmmm.. the more i know about copycat Chamsung.. the more I love my iphone 4 S... and thats the bottom line because Siri said so,.....

How are you digging the fact that the notification bar doesn't show that you have notifications until you actually pull it down?

And the S2 has been selling. It's not a wildfire, but it's selling. And as it starts to drop in price it'll sell more.

Are you even remotely aware of the fact that the SGS2 alone sold more than 10 million units during the 5 months it has been out?

iPhone 4S sold 4 million in one weekend. Sales estimates range between 20-40 million by December 31st.

If iPhone was so completely irrelevant, why did Samsung just spend money on a 1 minute commercial criticizing iPhone? Chew on that for a while Mr.

That's actually pretty funny. Almost as funny as the trouncing Samsung will take in sales over the next year.

Do you really think that will happen? They may get edged out (like they did in the latest reports, by HTC no less) but not trounced.

Motorola, however, I fear for. They need to use the Razr as their benchmark and shake off 2011. If they keep their act together! 2012 could be the year they start posting a small profit again. If they falter again, though, they may get crushed.

World sales Apple was 2nd to Samsung in the last quarter. For the year theyre quite a bit ahead. With iPhone 4s they will dominate.

Apples sales were down last because the Q4 of the fiscal year ended in September before the 4s was released. The iphone 4 sales slowed due to the anticipation of a newer iphone. Apple's Q1 fiscal report will probably break records due more carriers having the iphone

This commercial is amazing, I love Samsung product they competely dominated this past year even against other android phones. I showed it to my friends that were apple fans and they even laughed at it.

Apple people can talk about the 3S and 4 outselling phone individually but when it comes to smartphone sales over all everyone is now second and lower to Samsung. 2012 will just get better

This ad is disturbing. It is unbearably stupid, by simply recreating reality.

The real message is: all people are actually idiots - some of them are standing in lines, and the others are with them, telling them that they are standing in lines.

LOL - Americans are too media driven nowadays, thanks to TWITTER and FACEBOOK and media outlets, youtube, online, etc. You have to approach stuff like this with a calm level head and not with an emotional response.

C'mon now, I'm a Droidfanboy and the iPos can still beat us in 1 department and that's screen quality, and they have since the 4. Resolution is all that matters

not trading my SGS1 in for anything less than an SGS2 (or3) :) an iphone is most definately LESS than an SGS2.

you can talk sales all you want.. its meaningless. A product doesnt get better because it sells more and it doesnt get worse because it sells less..
lets talk features. oh.. dont wanna have that talk huh? lol

I've had a fascinate and now have an iPhone with verizon. I will stick with Apple right now. One good thing about apple is when a os update is available all phones get it unlike android you might be lucky if you get the next os update.

That is the main thing I dislike about Android, except because it is out on several manufacturers, that is going to happen. So, you just go with the company that updates the best. Sammy and AT&T are poor at this...enter XDA!

Wonder how MOTO will be with VERIZON? I hear they are better.

This is unacceptable sammy attack apple not their fans. First they go on about how their the best and now people who don\'t buy from them are sheep. Grow up apple users arent sheep and this is a very trolly ad.
