  • T-Mobile Slams iPhone 4S in Ads and on Website

    T-Mobile’s holiday marketing strategy? Bash the iPhone 4S.

    It appears T-Mobile’s has developed some bitterness toward Apple. Being the only major carrier in the U.S. without the iPhone must be tough. A slew of advertisements have started popping up around the Internet highlighting “advantages” Android devices have over the iPhone 4S. T-Mobile even has a “Android vs iPhone” page on their website with the headline “The heavyweights are here” followed by:

    “Look out, iPhone 4S—meet the rock stars of our Android powered lineup. Surf the web fast, stram your facorite movies on big, beautiful screens and take pictures with great cameras. With phones like these, it’s easy to find your perfect match.”
    No where on the page does T-Mobile actually compare the iPhone 4S and Android devices. The only comparison chart I was able to find compared the MyTouch 4G with the iPhone 4. Not exactly up to date. T-Mobile’s efforts don’t stop with their own website, ads have been popping up across the web bashing the iPhone 4S. Eric Willden—who tipped us off to T-Mobiles shoddy data plan practices last week—sent me the photos below earlier today. He noticed the ads while making his daily internet rounds.

    T-Mobile is taking direct shots at Apples iPhone 4S claiming the Galaxy S II and HTC Amaze 4G are faster “leaving the iPhone 4S in the dust.” Highlighting the advantages your phones have over a competitor's is smart, but lying about speed is another thing. T-Mobile isn’t helping their iPhoneless status with their latest marketing blitz.

      Did you click all of the links? Here's a more in-depth one that includes more than just browsermark scores.
      AnandTech - iPhone 4S Preliminary Benchmarks: ~800MHz A5, Slightly Slower GPU than iPad 2, Still Very Fast

      When you compare the speed of a phone running different OS', browsermark tests and others of the like are all you can go on. Both phones are required to do the same thing. Yes, the GS2 has a faster processor, but it cannot complete the same tasks as quickly as the iPhone 4S. If both phones were running the same software, the GS2 would be the winner across the board. That is the fundamental flaw of all Android devices, none of them are designed to integrate with the OS as well as the iPhone. At the end of the day, the iPhone is faster.

      Think of it like this, a 600 horsepower car is in a drag race with a 400 horsepower car. Car A should win but it doesn't because it can't put the power to the road and car B ends up winning the race.

      The us version of the galaxy s2 might be slow with all that bloat ware but the european version is quicker , and the nokia lumia windows phone ( out now in europe ) is also a snappy phone with that curved display , which is quite cool and feels good as well , iphone 4s is way behind in europe , maybe the usa not but we have more phones than you

      i wasn't a fan of any other phone sine iphone exist. Ofcourse iphone was the best smartphone because nobody could think like Apple's company did, and they did go the right direction, iphone became the world most popular phone that every body want it. But comon, does iphone satisfy what people want it now? too much restriction on IoS, you brought the iphone but Apple still rules it not you, what was the change of iphone 3, 3s, 4, 4s? yes, there were alot of changed but how much time they took it to just change a little thing? They did not focus on what people need, and that's why other phone company saw that. Other phone company dig out the good things about the iphone and combine their technology to make the new world phone better than iphone now. yes it's happening right now... Apple should stop accuse other companys for copying their product. it's a like but it's not the same, it's just better. It's got things that people want it.... if you a fan of apple, you should try some other brand. and maybe you will think different.. Free your mind and don't blind yourself
