T-Mobile's Galaxy S II wipes the floor with the iPhone 4S in this promo video (Sponsored Post)
This story is sponsored by T-Mobile.
You may be one of those users who have finally given up on the Android vs iPhone wars and be willing to look at things in a slightly more level-headed way, but for T-Mobile the war isn't over. In fact, being firmly convinced in the super-powers of its Android powerhouses, the carrier has launched a new promo video showing how its own Galaxy S II is literally wiping the floor with the iPhone 4S inside a retro-style game world.
In what seems to be a pretty one-sided match, the T-Mobile Galaxy S II is using key features such as its fast dual-core processor and the carrier's 4G HSPA+ network in order to achieve flawless victory against the iPhone 4S. What do you think, guys and gals, does T-Mobile's Galaxy S II has what it takes to win such a fight in the real world?

lol. Well, now they just need to start airing this stuff on TV. good to see sponsored adds at the site but thats talking to an audience already in the game. they need to talk to every one else.
That said.. Its corny, its cheesy, and its effective. I like it.

why is it even fair to compare these phones to the iphone? just looking at what these phones have that the iphone lacks, clearly shows that we are comparing top range phones to a mid range phone. its not a level playing field.

to people that follow tech, thats true. But to the average consumer they dont know nor care about whats inside the phone.. just what it does. And Apple is still a name brand. And for that, I like these commercials. They hit a bulletpoint about dual core processors but dont get too geeky and then just go after features.
I had a 80 yr old lady come into the store yesterday asking me if we had iphones.. when i got into the conversation with her, she said she had no idea what it was, didnt really want more than her flip phone, but was so convinced by all the advertising that she needed one, that she wanted to take a look. Very effective advertising is something Apple is good at.

I can understand that. I deal with people coming in asking for an "iPhone", but they don't know what it means. However, all MP3 players are iPods, all plastic wrapped adhesive bandages are Band-Aids, make a Xerox of this means photo copy, and so on and so on... You act like brand recognition and advertising are bad...? That's business. You might say, "Oh, I wasn't saying anything negative about Apple." You have a way of writing about Apple that is very annoying and negative in passive way.
Did you show her the features of what smart phones can do? Discuss the differences of her phone and a smart phone? Demo the iPhone or any Android? Ask her what she wants to be able to do with her new phone?

i'm pretty sure he was just using his experience to highlight the effectiveness of advertising and not using it to be negative about any one product. if more companies would be like apple and just advertise the abilities of the device in a general way and stop being so specific about the clock speed and technical specifications, then maybe they would be performing better in comparison to apple. I would also like to point out that i am well aware that there are more android users than apple. i'm just defending the validity of the argument used by remixfa.

if you reread it, this time without the "autoattack remix" blinders on, you would see that i used the story to actually convey a COMPLIMENT TO APPLE about their advertising. Since, you know, this is a thread about an advertisement, i figured it was at least in the same league of relevance to the subject.
Im sorry, No, your right. I'll act like the ignorant fanboy you expected me to be. Will that make you happy? My new name shall be gallitotacomizdroid4ever... the ultimate fanboy.
But what im NOT sorry about is having a negative connotation towards most things Apple related. Its a crap company that does horrible things to people in the name of an extra dollar. They are EVERYTHING those idiot 99%ers are rallying about and yet, i bet the bulk of those hippies carry an iphone.
I make no bones about the fact that i do not like apple's culture or track record. I dont see how anyone COULD like their record regardless if you like their products or not.
When it comes to the software side, you will find that I am mostly fair.. if you actually read what I write.

I read these comment sections quite often. I tend to think you are right most of the time.

just something that popped into my head. Why is he shaped like a green robot? kinda makes it look like she's beating on android. Should have been all silvery with rainbow stripes down the sides or something (throw back to the old apple logo)

This is why APPLE wants to ban Samsung products.

because of their sucky advertisements? I don't think that's it.
28. remixfa (Posts: 13923; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
its been proven that there are exactly 2 types of commercials people remember on the long term
1 - brilliant commercials that are so well made and have such a great point that u always remember them. very hard to make.
2 - cheap, corny, so badly made that it stains your brain. effective and easy to make.
guess which one most companies try to make when they are on a budget? lol

BS, everybody knows that GS II isn't faster than the iPhone 4s, not a chance in the world, tell me about a phone that's faster than iphone 4s, yeah, that's what i thought. And for those of you who haven't seen the true performance of an ipad or the benchmarks out there, i'll freshen you with some knowledge... the transformer prime which is out already and houses a quad core cpu is barely at the top with the ipad 2 which only houses a dual core cpu... What do you think will happen when the ipad 3 quad core comes out along with an iphone 5 quad core? Android will have to be running an 8 core cpu to be at the top with an ipad 3 quad core, please.. admit it, you know is true but you're too darn stuborn to believe it. Wake up people !!!
15. ILikeBubbles (Posts: 302; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
just sayin >.> apple will not make the jump from dual core to quad by the time the 5 comes out...
and hardware has nothing to do with the way the iPhone and android works.
iPhone is like your xbox. every single game is designed with one set of specs in mind that have been tested and tested and proven and strenuously benchmarked. effective? absolutely.
Android is much more PC standards. as many different specs as there are stars in the sky it seems. which means potentially higheir capability but the software may be written for higher cpu usage. or more ram hogging.. and since the Android market is so open because google believes everyone should have a chance to create something that means there are some pretty poorly written programs out there.
Apple pulls off having lower specs but higher thoroughput or smoother scrolling because its so fascist about it's apps and programs but that doesnt nessisarily mean it's "faster"

nice speech... i'm gonna cry, wah,wah... you're half right, half wrong...
17. ILikeBubbles (Posts: 302; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)

18. ILikeBubbles (Posts: 302; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)

24. ILikeBubbles (Posts: 302; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
my view is clearly defined... what do you mean half right half wrong? ill even take back the aggro really. i just want to know now.

and yet there have been reports of apple working on the apple A6 QUAD CORE PROCESSOR, samsung have even confirmed this readup before wrightup spammy boy
25. ILikeBubbles (Posts: 302; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
and although i used the term "fascist" im pretty on the fence about performance.

iPhone cant be compared to the new Android phones... LOL ! this promo is AWESOME ! GO SAMMY ! ^_^
22. thebikerboi2 (Posts: 144; Member since: 01 Apr 2011)
you do know that advertising does not tell you much about the devices, look at the benchmarks before you say that spammy is the best.

did a little research.. ok iphone 4s smokes most (okay all) android phones out there but that was after iOS 5. and while i feel a twinge of "making excuses" as i type this i still feel that once ICS comes out and the sgs II gets a taste things will be different. look at the difference in performance once the Nexus One got Gingerbread.. i'm not saying that "after ICS the SGS II will dominate the iPhone" not at all. and i still stand behind my theory that the iphone is much more like an xbox and android is like a pc.
