  • Samsung Takes Another Jab at Apple With New Galaxy S II Ad


    Samsung seems to be taking another jab at Apple and those who use Apple products with its new ad. In the new advertisement, the Galaxy SII’s larger screen and 4G speeds cause Apple fans to appear as whiny and mindless drones. Apple enthusiasts come off as the type of people who typically stand in line for days, get confused with rumors, and think linearly despite calling themselves “creative.” The advertisement is quite hilarious and I recommend that you watch it below:



    What Samsung did here is quite funny and to a certain extent, it does portray how some Apple enthusiasts behave. The ad seems to be Samsung’s counter to the ever growing popularity of the iPhone but I don’t think that this is the right way to do it. Trying to brag about your device and being snarky while doing so won’t really win over more customers but to an extent (at least in my opinion).

    What did you think of the ad? Did you find it as hilarious as I did? Share any thoughts and opinions below!

      That statement could possibly be true, but only if the SGII was better than the iPhone, but it isn't.
      Thanks for insulting one of the largest user bases in mobile devices Samsung.

      They might as well be saying "we're spending tons of money on comercials mocking apple because we keep losing patent lawsuits and want to act like 5 year olds." Not that it matters, the iPhone dominates the market for a reason...its a good phone. I'm not a hardcore apple fan, but when I got the original iPhone back in the day I knew it would be the last brand if phone I'd use for a long time to come. I may be off base, but it seems to me that Apple keeps raising the bar with what the iPhone can do, and everyone else just scrambles to keep up or tries to sue Apple in hopes to hinder their ability to compete. This comcerial doesn't seem too funny to me, I'm a business major, so to me it just looks like a good way to stunt sales. If they wanted to market their phone they should do more than have actors stare and say "pretty," the only thing's mentioned in the comercial at all are the screen size, that its 4G, and thin. I'd try to mention a little more than that if I were trying to compete with one of the most popular telephones we've seen in the past decade. lol

      It might have a larger screen and 4G speeds, but in the end it's still a Samsung. They just feel light and cheap in my opinion.

      It's a 30 Second spot, Maybe Samsung should have shown the users swapping out the extra battery that they have to carry around or shutting the 4g capability off so that they can make it two hours using the phone before the battery dies. Funny commercial. Samsung philosophy bigger is better (except for battery life).

      Its a funny add but ppl who want the latest smartphone will buy a 4S I tried Samsung's galaxy range and found it a pain in the rear end, returned 2 phones faulty within a month then came home to Apple. Samsung's customer service is crap where as I have a problem with my ipad2 Apple sent me a brand new one within 7 days.enough said.....

      Apple is the one who has to sue everyone to maintain their image. That's childish. An add that actually has some comedic value, that's original. And the funny thing is, it's all true. Tell me you didn't see on the news, or even were apart of, a huge apple release where you stood in line for hours? I wasn't, but i saw it on the news, and i thought to myself... gee, i'm glad i have a life. I love my iphone, but i'm not going to let a 90 second commercial piss me off. So all of you grow up, and go out and do something productive. No more crying over a commercial.

      ummm... were you around when apple ran the series of ads starring Justin long, portraying pc's as nerdy, middle of the road, uncreative, linear thinkers? smells a little different when the the shoe's on the other foot, doesn't it?

      So thank you for your words of one side seeing so you should see the other hand of things
      your not really a genius when you think android is going to be the best selling mobile OS out there. why, because it is jut like a pc connected to the internet with a half baked version of microsoft essentials, it has so many viruses out there. it has so many, if you recalled a older MMI article the # of viruses for android grew some where around 400% to 450%. and another thing you might of forgot when posting your comment, you can barely update your device since it is up to ever android phone manufacture to release the update from google. i.e.: nexus s user has 4.0, but samsung users just updated to 3.1. get it! (but please someone besides this "genius" correct me if I'm wrong) but apple keeps updates smooth like soft serve.
      and efficient too! Beat that!

      It's all performance vs features. I have nothing against Samsung besides the fact that they don't have any original ideas. My dad has a galaxyII. He likes it I guess, but he doesn't really know how to use it. I don't like the cheap plastic feel of other smartphones buts that's just my preference. My problem is with android. I think they are the Microsoft of mobile devices.

      Me: "Oh nice. What phone is that?"Them: "Samsung S2"Me: "Andriod?"Them: "Yup!"Me: "Eww."I wanted a bigger screen so I bought an iPad. No need to carry around a big phone in my pocket.
