Samsung getting snarky at Apple again, this time about apps

Samsung getting snarky at Apple again, this time about apps
Apart from its ad that was subtly mocking people waiting in line for an iPhone and went viral the other day with more than two million YouTube views, Samsung has another one in store.

The new piece is shorter and is focused on the fact that Android Market has exploded in terms of the number of applications you can find there that were previously available only at the App Store. Well, save for a number of mobile games, audio and tablet applications, but from a sheer number standpoint, Android's apps are not trailing iOS.

The guy rightfully concludes that he can also try the app out before buying, and also pranks the iPhone crowd into thinking the line has moved, pretty funny to watch.

Keep it up, Samsung! :) Smart people never stand in lines. Because Smart people use Android. And because of that - Smart people don't have to stand in line to buy just one type of phone. They can choose which one they like.

Haha~! This ad is ridiculous. Trying to fight Apple at its own game. Hmm...how about. Infinity Blade. Oops, don\'t have it. Tap Tap Revenge. Oops, don\'t have it either. Oh, your screen just dimmed. Haha...naa, joking.

If you want mobile games - buy an iPhone. If you want everything else - including a lot of stuff iPhone doesn't have - buy an Android phone. Oh, almost forgot. If you want your phone to NOT look and feel exactly like everyone else's phone - buy an Android phone.

This post and any other post similar to this is dumb, even if the iphone only change the back cover of their phone it's still a choice and regardless how much everyone praise android every phone by itself is beaten by one phone on one carrier alone.....the only way android have a chance against one phone that comes out once a year is to make 50 android phones a year......I have a android, but I just hate this post its dumb, everyone has a choice to like what they prefer, I like free apps, so call me cheap I don't care I will still buy a android to get my app fix unless Windows 7.5 or 8(next year) phone bring me some free apps, but seriously leave apple alone they obviously doing something right even if it were one or two changes made...

So you're saying that even if there is only one choice - it's still a choice. You know, Stalin kinda said that as well. How many people have the iPhone? Millions by now. Is it feasible to say that all of them want to have exactly the same phone with exactly the same User interface? No. Each and everyone of them would benefit greatly from an actual choice of different models, different specs and different price ranges, not to mention different user interfaces and tweaks. Just like the fact that two different people almost never wear the same clothes.

that is a misnomer. if the iphone came in different flavors (not just this years model and last years model) then it wouldnt consistantly be the #1 seller. Its single model sales are so high because you have only one choice if you want a top of the line iOS device. The individual iphone models are no longer beating the individual android models by the huge margins they used to. They are still winning, for sure, but its not like it was. Last year's big iphone numbers were a near even split between the top end i4 and the free 3gs. This year its going to be split between 3 phones (i4s, i4, 3gs) and if they break it down to CDMA and GSM like they do android models, it will be split even more. the point is, for the last year, Apple's market share has been all but stagnant, while Android has climbed to 50% of the smartphone market all by itself. You can look at OS numbers, you can look at individual phone numbers, or you can look at market share numbers. in 2 of 3, android is trouncing apple.... and phones like the SGS1 and SGS2 are getting closer to apple in total sales.

Actually there was an article today saying that there is a possibility of Infinity Blade coming to Android. Also, Tap Tap Revenge IS available for Android. Why don't you go look it up for yourself in the Android market?

HEY STRIKER... 1 Android doesnt need your retina cause its steps behind super amoled plus.... 2 Not faster??? it dual core.... Research first... ok? use your brain... oh wait you dont have one... maybe you can buy a brain in your app store.. 3 iOS is for iphone only and cant be used by any other phone be apple wont allow it.. seriously... you need to buy a brain at the app store... 4 Siri is just an improvement from google... because goole has that already... 5 no best camera??? 8mp?... then your iphone does not have the best camera too pr*ck... 6 At least the brick that you are refering to is tough not like your rectangular glass that you have in your pocket right now... if drop that iphone it's over for you unless you have insurace on your phone which is $99.99 for 1 year... oh wait it does not cover lost or stolen phones.... unlike android phones... 7 IPHONE doesnt even have 4g... so much for internet browsing and downloading... and dont start up that it has wifi... almost every android phone has wifi..

now this is what i called good competition, any competition using law enforcements leading to drawbacks on inovation is just not being fair..
