"There's iPhone and then there's everything else," says Apple in response to Samsung Galaxy S 4 unveiling

0. phoneArena posted on 16 Mar 2013, 19:48

With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 catching 99.99% of the buzz in the last two days, Apple is fighting back with a post on its website explaining why you should buy an Apple iPhone 5 instead of the Samsung Galaxy S 4; expanding on the "it just works" thought, Apple says that owners of its iconic smartphone say that it does so many things, so easily...

"iOS 6. The world's most advanced operating system."

How can Apple claim iOS is the most advanced OS while there are many more advanced OS like Android, WP8, BB10, and ubuntu?
Funny. iOS doesn't even have widgets. The most advanced my a$$!

iOS6 is not even a true OS.

Means as much to me as a restaurant who advertises the "world's best burger or pizza or whatever" Self proclaimed titles rarely mean ****

Alright, I'm going to try to take on each slide one by one.

1. Yes, and a lot of that "everything else" is better by comparison in my opinion.

2. Most advanced? Hardly. Making bold statements that are based on preference and are entirely false is bad, Apple. Shame.

3. I don't want your Siri when I have Google Now, which has been proven better.

4. There are many cloud options on Android, iCloud isn't special.

5. I'm sure many people are completely satisfied with their other devices, and don't need a trophy to admit it.

6. Every detail except for durability.

7. True, but many Android devices have super Retina displays with much higher pixel densities than the iPhone.

8. The iPhone 5 does have decent battery life, but that's only because the OS the hardware runs is so dead simple and optimized it uses barely any power. Also, iOS doesn't really have tasks running in the background like other OS's do.

9. Won't argue with that. Hats off to Samsung for making that chip for you, Apple. ;)

10. The iPhone JUST got LTE with the iPhone 5, and you're marketing it as a breakthrough feature? LTE is a standard now, it's nothing to brag about. I also thought dual band Wifi was a standard as well?

11. Yup, hats off to Sony for making that wonderful camera for you :)

12. All the apps I use are just as good, if not better, than their iOS equivalents. Also, Google Play is just as secure as the App Store, only idiots who download from unknown sources get malware.

"There's iPhone and then there's everything else".

That's actually a problem Apple. Everything else is kicking the iPhone's a$$.

It's really hard to compare the iPhone and an android phone. For the average person the iPhone is going to look more attractive because of the simplicity of it, from the design of the phone to the operating system it's meant to be user friendly. As far as an Android phone, it's more about customization and personalization, or you just want to find the cheapest smart phone. It's going to be an Android phone. I've owned every Galaxy S phone to date and currently own the Note 2, (kind of a nerd) and I love to tweek and change and push the phone to its limits until I have to factory reset or get a new one. But the average person doesn't really know how to use or ever will use at the very most twenty percent of what these phones are capable of. In one sense it well turn off some people, grandma "I'll never figure that out" and to the other (me) "the future is here".

"There's Windows Phone, IOS, BB10, and then there's a fragmented operating system that still manages to lag, even with 8 processing cores in the phone".

There, fixed for them.

Actual, there's Android, then there's the distant second place mobile OS that still can't multitask.

There was iphone then the company got bankrupt due to the death in innovation and the founder and their employees fighting each other and their their new ceo asking for forgiveness for their incompatibility in public, then a company named Samsung took over the lime light then since apple had nothing to innovate they started criticizing and now apple is only known as a fruit.

Retina display is just a branding for iPhone screens. It means nothing. 441 ppi is the standard now. The iPhones 326 ppi is nothing to brag about.

Hmm, it appears APPLE's marketing team is becoming a little desperate. Perhaps it is the smell of fear that drives them nowadays.
