Samsung to iPhone users: the thing you've been waiting on for years is already here, and it's the Galaxy S5

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.

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

Samsung is starting to panic. Why else does a company feel the necessity to create a bad image of a product that hasn't been even announced yet. With a larger screen, iPhone 6 is going to be an Android profit margin killer.

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.

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.

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.

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

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,

The A7 is even more advenced than that, snapdragon 801 is basically over clocked 800, which was over locked 600 with improved GPU. And guess what 805 is an over clocked 801 with improved GPU. That 2GB of RAM is not enough for a samsung S-bloatware, and thinking about that it's so low that even the iPhone is going to have that much memory this year. The camera is great and you can buy battery packs with micro SD slots, huge flashlights and so on. Limitless choice.
Yeah I would also take an Amoled from 2014 over LCD from 2012, or newer display in general, but the difference is not enough for me. That galaxy is just about 17% sharper, less bright, but has slightly better sunlight readability and very nice contrast. But the colors are inaccurate, amoled displays are producing more heat than LCD's, and I so don't like that adaptive crap samsung is trying to push.

from where you bring all this wrong information?
may be the creation of your own mind?

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.

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

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

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.

Garuanteed you constantly have power saving mode turned on and it's down clocking the CPU. Or you bought a knockoff version from eBay for $200. Mine does NOT lag at all no matter how hard I push it so I don't know wtf is wrong with yours.

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:)

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