Samsung does it again, making fun of those waiting on line for the Apple iPhone 5

Samsung Galaxy S III. This year, the person with the Samsung handset is actually on line, holding a spot for someone. And just who is he saving a place on the iPhone line for? Why, it's his older parents of course, as Samsung takes a shot at the characterization of the Apple iPhone as the handset for older people who aren't 'hip'. And while some on the line are talking, two Samsung Galaxy S III users share a play list using S Beam which quickly gets the attention of the Apple iPhone users.
The most telling part of the 90 second spot is when someone starts rattling off the new features of the Apple iPhone 5. "This one's got 4G," offers a Bill Gates look alike."Yeah, we've had that for a while," responds a Samsung Galaxy S III owner. "This one's got a big screen," responds the iPhone user. "This one's got a bigger screen," says the guy with the Galaxy S III who then launches into a litany of some of the features on Samsung's flagship smartphone.
Kudos to Samsung for continuing this series. No matter which phone you prefer, this is 90 seconds of pure fun and amusement and even Apple iPhone users should be able to laugh at themselves after viewing the ad. The only complaint we have is that Samsung didn't bring back the barista.

They don't care so much that they need to sue everyone in creation to ban competing phones. Oh and they're not on top. Samsung is on top, number one smartphone manufacturer in the world with most smartphones sold. And android is on top with roughly two thirds market share.

Love it. I really enjoy these teasing ribbings companies give each other in advertisements. Keep this stuff up, work hard in the R&D labs, and stay out of the courtrooms!

This was a funny ad. Samsung's marketers didn't lose their touch from the last ads featuring this concept.

isn't Galaxy Player and S Voice is clearly copy of iPod touch and Siri? Idc who created those in 1990. Everyone copied Apple but now more succesfull than him. Nice ad. Best device.

Voice Talk now S Voice existed in the S2 and S2 released 6 months before the 4S. 2012 iPod Nano looks just like 2007 Samsung YP-P2 mp3 players.
