"There's iPhone and then there's everything else," says Apple in response to Samsung Galaxy S 4 unveiling

0. phoneArena 16 Mar 2013, 19:48 posted on

With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 catching 99.99% of the buzz in the last two days, Apple is fighting back with a post on its website explaining why you should buy an Apple iPhone 5 instead of the Samsung Galaxy S 4; expanding on the "it just works" thought, Apple says that owners of its iconic smartphone say that it does so many things, so easily...

This is the lowest I've seen Apple, like ever. Even with all the lawsuits and ridiculous patent claims. This is low, and sad. To think they were setting the trend a few years ago, now they are just lying to themselves.

Exactly..iPhone only has retina display because their screen is too small for it to be HD

IPhone is a nice device but I would never see myself with one. This is a good chance for Apple to capitalize though since many people are disappointed with galaxy s4 design wise... Samsung should have went with a square design.. 4 corners for the galaxy s4...would have probably looked more elegant.

Sell it with brutal advertisements and award themselves with many disappointed users. Yeah that's good.

Agree, I hated the s3 design and now I have one (in black because the white was really a big no no for me). Having it in the hand plus the software experience changed my mind, and the same will happen with a lot of people that didn't liked the s4, plus the s4 is, in my opinion, better looking

Well, there's iPhone, and the galaxy s series, and then there's everything else.

not that they are the best, but they are the most well known and hyped.

I don't see how this is gonna do much about the public eye being on samsung. If everyone is looking at the galaxy, who is looking at apples page?

" man this galaxy is so awesome I think I'll ditch my iPhone! Well lemme look at apple.com to see if apple has something new."

no that's not how it works. Did apple fire the marketing guys?

Because its reported on a cell phone site I frequent. Us geeks are a minority in the consumer space, most people wouldn't have news feeds for sites like this, and therefore wouldn't see it. So fact remains that I'm reading about what they did, I'm not visiting their site to see it.

Let me correct you, How big Samsung has become, not android. Samsung is the only company making money. It does even refer to android in its presentation anymore. That's how much Sammy is distancing itself the OS.

Everyone is always mad at apple for adding incremental changes to the iPhone, and how they all start to look alike. Its funny now because thats what samsung seems to be doing. The Galaxy s3 looks like: Galaxy note 2, Galaxy s4, Galaxy s3 mini, Galaxy Grand, Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Axiom, Galaxy Express..........

That's what I've been screaming Christian. I was planning to make the jump to the HTC One but now that it's not coming to Verizon, who knows... I refuse to settle for a device... I'll stick with my Verizon Galaxy Nexus and bitch about how every device has some quam that it shouldn't!... That's why Apple should be worried about the “X" phone. With it, if rumors are true, we can order a device exactly how we want... not having to settle for what the OEMs think we want!

There was iphone then the company got bankrupt due to the death in innovation and the founder and their employees fighting each other and their their new ceo asking for forgiveness for their incompatibility in public, then a company named Samsung took over the lime light then since apple had nothing to innovate they started criticizing and now apple is only known as a fruit.

Apple is really the modern day equivalent to Scrooge McDuck. No willing to go big on advertising to get back on Samsung/Android.

I really like Samsung they are a big spender in hiring sales promoter having road show and big names in their Advers.

From the perspective of every company its "their product" and then "everything else". You can't tout features that are now standard on others' products. You say the product "just works"...how does it "just work"? What makes an iPhone different? iOS?

It is a good marketing ploy for those who don't research before they purchase though. I'd like to see someone go the Geico route. 99% comedy, 1% product in their marketing campaign. Because talking about features is pointless...they all have the same features! It's all about preference.
