  • Samsung Leaves iPhone 'Drained' in Biting New Ad


    Samsung is aiming to leave iPhone owners and prospective iPhone buyers feeling especially "drained" in response to the South Korean tech giant's new TV ad.

    Samsung is endeavoring to hit Apple where it hurts - right in the battery.

    The new ad, which blasts iPhone users as so-called "wall huggers," suggests that the iPhone's battery is inferior to the Samsung smartphone experience. And the video shared below makes the iPhone's battery life the central argument advanced in the ad.

    Although the commercial is definitely a bit over-the-top, Samsung will definitely hit a nerve, as no shortage of iPhone users have griped about the iPhone's less than stellar battery over the years, although the underlying issues appear to be mitigating (either that or those complaining are just less vocal today).

    Either way, Samsung clearly has a new target in the smartphone wars. Will it resonate? Check out the commercial below and judge for yourself.

      More reinforcement as to why I'll never buy Samsung. If the best you can do with your ads is bash competitors, I don't want to give you my business.

      I've always thought the same thing. Apple says why their stuff is great. Samsung and Windows do ads that only talk about how bad Apple is.

      They are comparing battery life hahahaha. How bad was the galaxy s4 battery. They should be really comparing the s5 to the iPhone 6. Samsung... Your phone will never beat iPhone. All those useless features are not being used by your customers. iPhone 6 will kill all the phones out there

      :Ehem:
      That is from 2007—and it's between Mac and Windows. In other words they were insecure about their Mac sales in 2007. They never resorted to bashing to push the iPhone—or anything in the past 5 years to my knowledge.

      I'd forgotten about these. You have to admit one thing though, at least these were funny.

      Had a s3 and s4 and neither was any better than an iPhone! End of the day neither company is focused on making a battery that can last more than a day unless you don't use your phone!

      We'll in a way he's kinda right. Everyone I know mostly has an iPhone. Everyone else that has an android phone only uses it for a phone and or there cheap pay as you go. I do have 1 friend though who has a galaxy s4. He likes the galaxies but he doesn't use all those features. I'm not one of those guys though to say iPhone is number 1 but even I wouldn't mind to try out a brand new galaxy.

      Yes, I found myself laughing at the Samsung ad and the youtube ad-pack! One thing ol' Steve Jobs said is that Apple has taste. Samsung...not so much. It's like showing everyone drowning in a light rain shower! So overdone, it's just ridiculous. Another case of comparing an inadequate product to the standard product by which everything else is measured. I'm a fanboy in terms of finding a product/company I like and would rather buy a battery case (if I really needed one) for my almost two year old iPhone 5 than get a monster phone with a subpar OS that is susceptible to viruses. If you're willing to carry around extra batteries, I guess you can carry around a battery backup too...

      So Samsung are giving away a second battery ???? Don't think so.
      So if I've got to buy a second battery to get my smartphone through the day then I can just as well buy a portable USB charger and charge my iPhone if it needs it.

      Replaceable battery, Really, Isn't that just admitting that the battery is inferior and WHEN you need to get more power, you just pop off the back and replace the battery and then split the plastic as it's being popped on and off twice a day and when you get home you now need to charge 2 batteries to be ready for tomorrow but "Oh no, I've only got one phone to charge my batteries so how am I going to charge the second one ????"

      Don't make me laugh Samsuck - FAIL

      Funny some making fun at the galaxy phones and now the iPhone people are waking up and making their phones bigger. People forget that android gives users a little more freedom than the iPhone, the iPhone gives you what they want to give that's it. My friends had iPhones I use an iPhone myself they switched to android and they're crazy with it. The only reason I have the iPhone is cause it's JB if not I would go crazy looking at that dull screen with those ugly a-- icons.What the iPhone is planning to do with the iPhone the android already has it. Those people who don't think the same are in big time denial. Pretty soon I will give it a go have my eyes on the LG G3 myself.

      True, but Apple doesn't mind waiting to bring products to market until they are more refined and better quality all around. Apple did not go with larger displays because of the leadership in place at the time. Jobs' belief was more along the lines of customers not knowing what they wanted/needed until it was invented and shown to them. In many ways, that's true. Since Cook is at the helm this philosophy has changed, hence the coming updates. At any rate, when I bought the iPhone 5 the day it was released (by utter luck and coincidence) I lost my jailbreak for a while and, you know, I still loved it! Nonetheless, when iOS 6 was jailbroken, I was one of the first to rejoice and jailbreak it! Also, samsung and other android users all release limited and somewhat proprietary versions of the OS, none of which are truly open and free. It's similar across the board and people like what they like. It's all good. I just don't like cheap-feeling plastic phones!
