  • Samsung Continues Anti-Apple Campaign by Bashing iTunes in the Cloud


    Samsung continues with its anti-Apple campaign, this time with a new advertising depicting Apple fans still waiting on absurdly long lines for a new iPhone. It isn’t quite clear why a company like Samsung would possibly insult potential future customers but the new Galaxy S II commercial seems to exploit the line waiters theme, which was first seen in last month’s commercial and the company’s Facebook page.



    The new commercial focuses on the Galaxy S II’s content and specifically music in the cloud. This became apparent when the Samsung user asks those in the line for the iPhone “You guys are still here?” then proceeds to laugh at them insisting that his Galaxy S II keeps all his content. “I have all my playlists right here, my music streams from the cloud and I have tons of places to buy my music,” he says to his iPhone toting friends who stare at his device looking bewildered.

    This was in response to the focus that Apple’s been heavily advertising, such as the iOS 5 software and iCloud/iTunes Match music locker in the cloud. Samsung continues by saying that they are “excited for the opportunity to educate as many consumers as possible about why the Samsung Galaxy S II is the preferred choice for smartphone owners.”

    I personally found the first commercial to be funny and even some of the Facebook wall posts but this commercial seems to be a bit redundant. I also feel it is starting to become misleading, with Samsung trying to boast that iOS users are always as crazy as the ones depicted in the picture (waiting 36 hours, come on!). Furthermore, the Apple fans standing on line so they can fit their music in one device also felt a bit unreal. The same features (more or less) are offered on both devices. What are your thoughts? Share your impressions below!

      Someone said iOS 4.x + on 3G was an unfair comparison. That is BS. That is an Apple OS on an Apple product. Apple fans say iOS is so light and requires little hardware acceleration to run well...so long as we discount the iPhone 3G.

      Apple fanboys are the biggest hypocritical idiots I have ever seen.

      Face facts...Apple is on borrowed time. Their hypocrisy, their lies, and their lawsuits are piling up. I woke up to what Apple was pulling and I am now a proud owner of a GSII.

      Apple still lives in the days of having a 3.x sized screen is an acceptable screen size for a flagship product. All these Apple drones need to wake up, and put the sledgehammer through Apple...and make the words "Steve Jobs" synonymous with "crooked business practice"

      No, they definitely bashed PC USERS as well as PC's! How do you think they portrayed PC users in those commercials? Like uptight, uneducated, old men. And Apple users were portrayed as cool, hip, mid twenties smart asses. You don't think apple took the people acting as PC and MAC into consideration? You need to take a business class.

      Call me what you want but the bottom line is who sells more phones Samsung or Apple. What are 99% of the mobile phone carriers in the world want to carry? Yes the iPhone. Let's be totally impartial. If you laid a Samsung phone next to an iPhone, which one LOOKS ecstatically better. Numbers don't lie.

      What site talks about android os and phones?
      I mean you have apparent hemodrhoids here, at an apple oriented site, so do they have any "credible" sites that we/I could go and haunt?

      iphone is far from 99% of the market
      And I think some of the other phones are cool too
      ModMyI is a fan site or attracts a lot of Fans
      I come here to learn about JB but get interested in the discussion
      But it turns sour unless I do nothing but agree iPhone is the best.

      I think iPhone is good but it has flaws
      Just as android

Apple has only a few products compared to say Samsung, my question is if Samsung had such system going on, would they do it as well as Apple does? I don't know but I do think you should give Apple some credit. They attempted something and succeded. And it's not due to hype it's due to actually knowing what you are doing product wise. You may say it is marketing but I'm more inclined to say it's trying to achive something good and guess what, some people noticed that and bought their products and now Apple is worth what it is.
      My Wife works at Staples and every year a dozen or more new college students come in to buy a PC laptop because they had a Mac and found it useless for college,
      They had problems with compatibility

      PC laptops are user upgradable
      I can get an awesome light PC laptop for 700 or less

      But enough I believe Macs are all hype thats all
      Always have and always will
      I have used a mac before and hated it
      I have used and programed PC's since 1980

      I think in the above quote you mentioned it was "strangely similar" and I take it you are trying to be clever and say that does not mean copy, I take as you do.

      I do not think its a copy, nor do I think Android is a copy, I have used and worked with both and find them a lot different in many ways.
      In order to have an OS and touch screen and ear phone and Mic and buttons sure they are going to share some things in common.
      At one time most landline phones all looked the same too, cordless phones later looked similar too..........

      Anyway if I misunderstood the comment then fine, but I grow tired of always having to explain the obvious to people on MMI

      If I offended people, I'm sorry but do not be so thinned skinned, I have my opinions about the iPhone and its love hate mostly. I hate any fanboyism it really P's me off.
      Its a phone
      Its a Laptop
      its not so important
      I have fun with these devices and work on them

      but when it comes down to it, its just not that important compared to other things in life

      Ok, I love Android as much as iOS, but this isnt really a fair comparison. Your looking at the iPhone 3G which was released in 2008 along with the G1 also released then. iOS4 was released in 2010, two years after the launch. The G1 was released about the same time and the highest version released for it was 1.6 released 2009, 1 year of support. Really? You said "some android phones lag due to limited hardware as well", then how can you say its a fair comparison. I had a 3G and upgrade to 4.0, it was bad, but better than a G1 running 2.2 or actually a lot of android phones with the same hardware as the 3G or better.

      Lots of android phones still are sluggish or slow, they have gotten a whole lot better, and there are a lot that are amazing (Samsung GSII), but there are android phones that are just as slow as the 3G but were built to run there version. Android running on an Android Phone right?

      But I dont think its a fair comparison to put 2.2 on the G1 and say its fair...

      Saying that 3.5inch screen isnt acceptable is an opinion, not everyone will have the same opinion. Why are they a crooked business practice? Because they sell something that people want? Because they make something the way they want to? Because they dont allow external apps? Because they stop jailbreaking? No thats called business... They make a product how they want to, you buy there product because you like it, you upgrade and loose your jailbreak by choice, they dont force you.

      I have to disagree with you on this. We all know that Apple SPECIFICALLY puts updates to kill the jailbreaks. If they were fair they would allow us to keep the jailbreak and use outside apps at our own risk. They want you to buy THIER product from the apple store so the kill the jailbreak. Its simple economics bro and they want it all and don't want to share. For me thats crooked business.

      I agree, they do and I dont think it is right. But, we can either not upgrade or not buy the product right? They dont want a bug in there closed system, they dont want loopholes to get through there OS, sure thats not really "fair", but it is there software and we could buy other phones. Im against apple suing every company, but making money is what businesses do. They have a legacy support program like no other company meaning your device is at least going to get 2 years of support. That is not what I call crooked business, that is business. They want there OS to be fail proof and fault proof. What's crooked business is that a new phone doesn't even get 1 major update, and thankfully that is being fixed in future android phones.

      I love my jailbreak as much as anything, Apple is far from perfect, but it is there OS and modifying it isn't exactly what they intended. I cant say that is crooked business, its mean, but not crooked.

      Now even Apple's commercial is being interpreted in the way, so that bs ad of samsung does not look like absolute bs. Most importantly, there were ad's with the woman present, who portrayed PC user moving to a Mac.

      "Fanboyism ^ 3" or "Applehatism ^ 3" ? Or maybe both?
      This is not even stupid.

      P.S. Reading through all these comments here made me sick. 2 bits of relevant information in the pool of s-hit and half-true half-baked argument. Go figure why "simple" people are uneducated about such things...

      You stated that I said that EVERYONE copies apple. I said that the GS2 packaging looked similar to the iPhone's. So I guess Samsung is everyone? It was a joke too btw. Talk about obvious.. And I do not care about other's opinions, I care that truth about these matters are spoken, not biased opinions. and Fandroids or Apple fanboys.

      Ok I get that not everyone loves macs, but compatibility shouldnt be an issue. (Shouldn't being key here) Windows 7 runs on Macs too, so theres no program incompatibility if there is not already a Mac counterpart.

      If your on this site, you probably know how to use a screwdriver and can take off the bottom screws of a MBP. There might be different parts than your average hardware store, but there not totally not able to be upgradable.

      Price does seem to be an issue, but if these students already had one..?

      You are entitled to have the opinion that you dont like Macs, thats fine. But there are a lot of factors why people buy macs. I for one love using my mac, but am using my windows desktop right now because it is close. I like using my Mac more, but not everyone will have that opinion. Though I really wish Manufacturers would include more built in application like Garageband, and other built in apps when we get higher in the Win price range.

Apps were continuously crashing that never crashed on the iPhone. It froze on me 4 freaking hours after buying it. The widgets are a big battery hog. The LTE was an even bigger battery hog with no way to turn it off. The front "gorilla glass" had scratches and scuffs that would not come out after sitting in my t-shirt pocket for about an hour with nothing but a small light plastic shirt button tapping against it. The speaker quality was horrible.....both from call quality and music/video audio quality. About the only good thing about it was the LTE speeds which were ridiculously fast......but I'd like to see how that holds up when more and more phones become LTE compatible......especially the next iPhone.

      All in all I wasn't impressed either with Android or the Samsung brand. Terrible phone. So I switched back to the iPhone with the quickness after I couldn't take it anymore.
      It's worth noting that the SGS2 and the SGS2 Skyrocket are not even the same phone (in more ways than just LTE). It's a shame they market it as such. The SGS2 is a MUCH nicer phone than the skyrocket.
