Samsung pokes fun at Apple in six new ads for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4
posted by Alan F. / Sep 10, 2014, 11:58 PM
The first ad makes fun of the difficulties Apple had with the live stream it was supposed to be sending out yesterday, during its new product introductions. The spoof shows the two "genius bar" workers, one who is pretending to talk as though he were a live feed breaking up. "You're in technology and you can't handle this?," the other genius bar worker says. Every one asked Apple the same question on Tuesday. Score one for Samsung.
In the second ad, the same two "genius bar" employees are watching what is obviously supposed to be yesterday's Apple iPhone 6 announcement. They rejoice in the introduction of the larger screened iPhones, until they come to the realization that other phones have larger screens (like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, of course).
The rest of the ads cover things like the Apple Watch, the S Pen, Multi Wimdows and battery life. We've embedded all six below for your viewing pleasure. Who knows? Perhaps one day Samsung will bring back the barista. By the way, the series of ads is cleverly called, "It doesn't take a genius."

It was these kinds of ads that got people to Samsung from Apple in the first place. This year, I am damn sure, Apple will lose the largest portions of its market share. They literally delivered the same camera AGAIN, with 1 GB of ram AGAIN, with an uglier design, a ridiculous resolution (on the main phone) and the only new thing, NFC is already on all competitor solutions.

Most of that won't matter to the everyday Joe. Then don't know or care what ram their phone has. Most couldn't tell you had much ram their PC has, certainly not what speed or latency. This year will be like all others, Apple will surge a few points in the launch quarter, then things will settle back the rest of the year and year over year things will be almost exactly where they are now. Apple will be at about 15% share, Android over 80%. I just can't see Android getting any bigger.

I think that the 15% will diminish, the roughly 80% the same, but you're correct that as the rush of folks replacing their prior iDevices subsides things will be back to the "norm". None of the announced products seem compelling enough to make anyone switch to or return to apple, unless folks were absolutely jiving for a bigger screen and that was the sole (and silly) reason they switched platforms.

@ tedkord I agree with you, every tech geek, assumes that everyone who buys a phone know what they are doing. People in NYC do not know much, they have an iphone and all they want is an upgrade to a new one. They don't care that it's 50x faster or 2x bigger. They had an Iphone they like it, they will buy another one. All this biased crap really needs to stop. If people like Android, than buy Android, people like Iphone buy an Iphone, you like WP buy a WP. But making a competition of who released a better phone is just childish. I went from Iphone 5 to Note 3, because Iphone was small. I may go back to Iphone. For one reason only, Apple Music app, in my opinion is better than any stock or 3rd party android phone. Every has their phone of choice so why bash each other, on who is better,,, Nothing better to do?

People bought into these ads because they really didn't know what they were buying themselves into. Samsung's s**t is everywhere now and no one really stops to watch this ads apart from being entertained. Samsung is like deer in the headlights and they know this. Bigger screens was their only way out and with the iPhone getting bigger there really isn't anything worth calling out. That streaming problem? Samsung would kill for that to happen. They can't make better products now and all they can do is make these lame ads. I think Apple should actually pay Samsung for the free publicity, I mean seriously they can't possibly let them do this for free. I know a lot of guys here would frown at this but it's not really about smartphones anymore, Samsung knows this and they are willing to do all it takes. I hope a bunch of you will wake up by then. Cheers
