Samsung picks a fight with the iPad in its latest Galaxy PRO tablets video ads

Samsung picks a fight with the iPad in its latest Galaxy PRO tablets video ads
Samsung is not one to miss taking a jab at the competition, and, given that the new PRO series of its tablets stands against the almighty iPad line, it was only a matter of time before we got a rude and direct comparison. The Koreans are picking on the iPad in the form of several video ads, where they tout the virtues of the PRO tablet line that don't have a corresponding feature in the iPad. 

Samsung's tablets here include the Tab PRO 8.4, 10.1, 12.2, and the stylus-laden NotePRO. The 10-incher comes as a direct competitor to the iPad Air, as it is thin, light, and has higher pixel density, albeit achieved with an alternative pixel matrix. The smallest Tab PRO 8.4, however, has the same pixel density but a standard "stripe" RGB matrix, which can really take on the iPad mini with Retina Display. Have fun with Samsung's condescending slights at Apple's creations in the video slideshow below.

These are all really old though... I have seen these during sports telecasts. STILL they DO kill Apple with their features NOT through smear. Very, very good by Samsung, letting the features of their devices do the talking. +1

Im not an apple fan or anything but the ipad air is better than all the android tablets (for its apps) and samsung tablets are the best tablets for multitasking and taking advantage of the screen size (save for windows tablets when in desktop mode). but still nothing can beat the surface pro and the xperia tablet Z2 for me.

Not sure what you are referring to but the surface pro IS better than any of the others by a large margin

Tablets not to be confused with notebooks

Surface pro is in the same form as all other tablets so yes the surface pro is a tablet that just so happens to wipe the floor with all others.

It seems attractive only on paper. I had it for a week. X86 Apps didnt scale well, photoshop was tricky, overheating issues. Most games wont play(thanks to crappy gpu and most x86 games are not optimized well). My notebook is nearly as compact as surface pro. So i gave up and returned it back. Both android and ipad have great games(better than those compatible with surface's gpu). My point is surface is suitable as a laptop, while android/ipads are real tablets. Tablets are nowhere near productivity of laptops.

didn't scale well? photoshop was tricky? overheating? Seems like you don't know how to use a mouse, no one is going to use photoshop with pure touch unless you have the pen, and if you do. It is the same as a desktop. I have a lynx 11.6, there is nothing that a droid can do that mine cannot. Yet there is plenty my tablet can do that droid cannot. You talk about games? really games designed for arm? Sure lets take heavy exclusive games designed for desktops and shove them in a fight against a game that could run on 2001 pc hardware and call it maxed out on droid. Come on, the gpu in the surface wipes the floor with droids offerings in the i5. I could site specs but I highly doubt you will understand them.

lol how is the surface pro "an inferior product"? it is without a doubt the most powerful and the most capable tablet in the world. you can use full Autocad, photoshop... etc but i guess you are too dumb to know that... no offence

none taken, but i recommend you to actually use the surface, have the terrible experience of windows on a tablet and then come back and make a confession.

Guy I can attest to the awesomeness of the surface pro as I use it daily.. Nothing comes close period... As a business professional I wouldn't use anything else for productivity

maybe in a few years time, but for now -sorry to break it to you- you're just a beta tester period.

No I need productivity and android nor apple can match my needs. Spin it how you want but the truth is the truth

I have Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T (google it) with i5 and Windows 8 pro, I use it as my main desktop at home by connecting wireless keyboard and mouse and a FHD 24" screen, believe it or not i am playing C&C Zero Hours on it and it's very smooth until i play against 7 hard infantry components then it start to get slow... surface is a joke...

I agree the air is better than the android tablets and tablet apps are more plentiful with apple.. Not just scaled up phone apps or even worse would be a chrome tablet.

I want to get a iPad mini but these ads make me think how apple is falling behind. I want to watch my itunes on a ipad but not I'm thinking what's the point now.

Samsung does good in advertising as always. It's pretty old advertisements though ..

This, is how you do commercials, not some cringe worthy rdj commercials!

I love how sambots are okay with Ss dogging the competition but if any other mfg does it they fly off the deep end with comments.

It will be nice if apple adds more feature something like S-Pen for productivity and an external memory maybe? Guess that will never happen... I will upgrade my iPad 4 if it worth the money, it's hard to go back using android tablet without optimized apps maybe smaller tablet like nexus 7 will going to be okay but i prefer large screen device.
