Samsung takes the Apple fight to the streets with new Galaxy Tab S vs iPad advert
posted by Luis D. / Aug 29, 2014, 9:28 AM
It makes sense for Samsung to be more aggressive than ever with its advertisements, as that time of the year when the media and consumer space are preoccupied with Apple's latest product approaches. Besides, every major technological vendor is looking to boost the hype around its products ahead of the annual IFA event in Berlin.
Competition will be strong this year, and Samsung is gearing up to defend its market territory with a successor to the Galaxy Note 3, a new Gear smart-watch, and (quite possibly) its first virtual reality headset. The best is yet to come!
So, if someone on the street asked you to compare the Galaxy Tab S and the iPad Air, what would you say?
- Display 10.5" 2560 x 1600 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 5 Octa, Octa-core, 1900 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 7900 mAh

the thing is we all know the tab s is better its getting the idrones to look at one and see for them self. i think it would be funny if google or samsung did a remake of the iconic mac ad with the factory look and the woman runs in and busts the screen,

One lesson learnt from this ad is people really do buy what they know. I think advertising how great your product is is very important. Most people only know of iPads and iPhones that's what they look out for when purchasing any of the above. When someone else introduces another product to you and you finally compare it to what you're used to, the decision is much clearer.

all of these products are next to each other in your local best buy, target, walmart, etc. so im confused bc you can go and compare for yourself without the help of a hired salesperson pitching a product... maybe that's why this ad didn't include the surface pro? get it?

not really, the reason why is if your mind set on apple you go in and there is a apple section only and you get it and go, by forcing the 2 on a screen and doing commercials thats the only way to get the mass amount of ipeps to look up and see a better tablet for cheaper. most americans see the price and think it costs more so it must have more features.

yeah. globaly, samsung spend 4 x more than apple in ads, samsung spend $4 billion (>3% of its total revenue) on ads, whereas apple spend $1 billions ( $400 million, whereby apple in its homeland, spend around $ 333 million only. together with marketing campaign, promotion, ads etc, smasung spend more than $14B per year which is more than any company in history. to be exact, samsung is the GREATEST MARKETING company in the world i wonder why still no one know HOW GREAT samsung product are. and all these APPLE'S intensive marketing hype around the web, brain washing ads of apple.

thats because they dont air the samsung commercials on american tv that you see here, just lame stupid ones that make me want to leave them, then you see a simple clean liquid metal flow into the iphone shape and you think cool i like. if samsung did more of these vids on usa tv they would be seen more here.

samsung is putting efforts and money for nano particle research which will be effective in curing cancer... moreover samsung is also working with many pharmas for boitechnology in medicines to reduce the side effects of the medicines

Seriously? My Tab S is nowhere as fast as the iPad air. Samsung made a big mistake by going for the exynos octa on a flagship product.

I am a big android fan my daily cell phone is a nexus But when it comes to tablets the iPad wins hands down its sad but its mainly because of how terrible the apps are for the android tablet compared to the ipad

Yup But even if the ppl test Tab S and iPad, they will see that this ad is TRUE. I don't see anything like "great marketing" in this ad. Simply they have great things to show to the ppl.

this ad reeks desperation. Samsung is like a deer in the headlights at this point. I'm just sitting here doing what the Germans call schadenfreude

Umm .. Samsung is at this point chasing Apple in the tablet market, it's the closest they have been to right now and it's only getting better, actually it's apple that is on fire and a dear in headlights, because it's no longer Samsung alone, there are many other premium android makers in the race also and this includes Sony (man the Z3 compact tablet looks awesome!), htc and even Google itself, the market share is shrinking, so much that Apple decided to go after Samsung in their own game (think big screens, think apple never making a phone larger than 60 mms because a phone is a phone.. etc) Steve Jobs must be spinning in his grave right now.

Actually it's called aggressive marketing and its perfectly legal in the highly competitive market that Samsung finds itself. You need to own the market by proving your products are better than the offerings of competitors. Apple is still the leading tablet manufacturer and Samsung needs to do some convincing so this is a step in the right direction

Some say aggressive, some say desperate. Do people really believe that every random person they met liked the Samsung more? Do they really beleive that these people are not actors? Do they really believe that iPhone owners are the only ones charging their phones in airports, or whatever? I tested my iPhone against my friend's Galaxy S5 - after doing typical things (albeit heavy use on both identically - just wanted the battery to go down faster to save time) - and Galaxy came out about 2% at the end where the iPhone 5s died. Charged both to 10 percent only, and did some identical tests again (btw iPhone charged faster to 10% - because battery is smaller) and iPhone had just hit 1% when S5 died, but with that one percent it streamed music for about 30 minutes from external harddrive over LTE to a bluetooth speaker dock (no wires) and yes about 30 minutes on 1% after Samsung already died. And dont forget my iPhone is almost a year old, his S5 was about a month old. But, on average I'd give SGS5 just a little better battery 1% or 2% better - but not dramatically the way Samsung wants us to believe... I know it has UPSM, but the things we tried not all would work with that on. We will make a youtube video of this later.
