Samsung to iPhone users: the thing you've been waiting on for years is already here, and it's the Galaxy S5
Samsung today released a new commercial that tries to make fun of iPhone users - a few weeks after calling them “wall huggers” in this ad. While the previous commercial talked about the battery of the Galaxy S5, and how it’s allegedly better than any iPhone battery, the new one concentrates on the fact that the S5 has a larger display: a 5.1-inch panel, compared to the 4.0-inch display of the latest iPhone models.

As you’ll see below, the new commercial presents an iPhone user, and a Galaxy S5 user. The former says that “iPhone might be getting a bigger screen.” Samsung - well, an unseen voice actually - then replies: “You know that thing you’ve been waiting on for like two years, and how it’s supposed to be awesome and how it’s gonna blow your mind? It’s been here this whole time. But maybe you just like waiting.”

Sure enough, there are other things that a user cares about when choosing a smartphone, it’s not just the screen size. Even so, Apple seems to have finally realized that customers do want larger screens - that’s why it looks like it’s going to launch a 4.7 and a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 later this year (most likely in September). Until then, though, Samsung still has a couple of months to air this commercial:

The black guy holding the GS5 looks confused and frustrated. Seems about right.

Please tell me more about your close to bullcrap touchwiz and how your OS lags on an octacore chip?
iPhone is smoother and more stable with the dual core?
It is the software that matters these days

Funny because when I had my S5 that thing never lagged. Try again next time.

iToys are just that toys. You either have to be a girl, a teenager, a senior citizen or just really dumb to own an iToy. I mean if you want the BEST tech available then the iToy IS NOT it.

Apple's iPhone is STILL not HD. Samsung has 1440p phones while Apple has not made it to 720p yet!!! They say they have the first 64bit processor yet they don't have enough RAM to actually use it. Really?!?

Apple is constantly claiming they are giving their customers the best when in fact they are not. The sad thing in all of this is that the Apple fans eat it all up.

When Samsung says "the thing you have been waiting on for years is already here" they are actually telling the truth... unlike Apple! lololololololololol

Ironic isn't it...

People should be careful what they wish for, when competition no longer exists maybe then they'll realise how utterly silly their hating was.

WP, BB, iOS should all have the chance to exist for a healthy mobile world.

I agree. There's too much clutter. It needs to be simplified.

By 'science' retina display or the term retina, means the distance and screen size and pixel ratio to when your eyes cannot tell the difference in pixels. And for the most part they are right. quadhd is a race to the top of specs and nothing more, imo.

As well you really don't know what 64bit brings to the table, even if you don't have more than 4gb of ram. I am sure there are plenty of people here to show you what it truly means, but I would think you would need more understanding than.....it doesn't have 4gb zomg apple sucks look at my android name, wooooooooooo.

For apple if they want a bigger screen they have an iPad. Most people that want to do anything serious in terms of screen real estate use an ipad.

I love my note 3's screen size, but you have to be high to think it can replace a tablet of any decent size from 8in to 12in. It is one reason why I don't care that my every day phone is 4.5in (Yes my note 3 is a sidekick to my other phone), cause I just pull out a full blown 11.6in pc that syncs with my phone flawlessy and look at a note 3 user (this includes myself) and laugh that for the price of both, I can do more.

I can say the same about my iPad Mini 2 - an iOS device that sports the latest Ax chip and is 64-bit.

Hmm, Snapdragon 801 running at 2.5ghz with 2gb of ram. 16mp ioscell camera. Removable battery 2800mha battery. You can even get a 7500mha replacement battery for it. For me personally I would take AMOLED over an IPS display any day of the week. You can be more productive and the S5 vs the iPhone 5s. Not to mention all the smart watches out there for Androids in general. The only frustration here is the idiots who believe Apples words all the time. Like we have the perfect size and form factor in the iPhone almost every year. Now they want to release a 4.7" and a 5.5". So what's wrong with their previous perfect size and form factor? Yeah, right. A none HD tiny little 4" display. What kills me is people saying graphics is so much faster on the iPhones. Try moving more pixels around. With displays like the Galaxy S5, Note 3, and many more full HD displays. They are pushing almost 3 times the number of pixels around the screen. Truly the only people confused and frustrated would be the iPhone people who believe what Apple tells them.

Exacto mundo I will get the note 4 sure it will be waterproof I really don't care about metal... just like the price is right... the only thing the iPhone is going to rock is the built in 128gb drive at least I can have a 128 gb memory card

Too each is their own. I have a iPhone 5 and Note 3. Since moving to Verizon for Working I went with the LG G3(Not sure if I am keeping it). Personally I could careless about a removable battery. I always buy a Mophie Juice-pack for my iPhones. I get both a case and extended battery. When going with an extended battery on Android devices you are SOL for cases for the most part.

Each phone provides something different for each user. With iOS i get a much more stable environment.

Close proximity to iphone users can do that.

"It's so simple and intuitive, everything I want!" and then "Do you know how I...?" or "I can't wait for a bigger screen!".

I have a lot of misgivings about the Amazon Fire phone, but those are the types that will love it for Mayday.

The iphone's design does look sleeker and more sexy than the GS5 . Not to mention it has a better fingerprint scanner .

However , i would much rather wait for the REAL Samsung flagship , the Galaxy note series .Galaxy S series is kinda junior compare with note series

Could you tell how your phone acts as a feature phone in 2014? Kayeeman its not about smoother, the more basic a phone is the more smoother it gets.., I just got a pendrive for my gs5:)

When did we become SOL getting a case for an extended battery with Android? I've never had an issue getting one. Seidio makes great extended battery cases, with kickstands. So does Kraken.

You are so right.
Yeah, the iPhone's a terrible size, with all those bezels. And I bet Apple could EASILY plop a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor into the iphone without 2 inches of bezel,

Yeah, Touchwiz is pretty awful.
And hey, how long has your iPhone's battery life lasted? An hour? Maybe two?

I don't know what s5 you are using but my s5 lags so much! The only reason i choose s5 over m8 was because I really need a good camera. iPhone has good camera and everything but i can't go to a 4inch screen.
