  • 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!

      WHy is it ok to upload my Pics, docs and sensitive information to a "Cloud" How secure is it really? I do not trust it to be honest.
      well said bro.... I felt the same way when changed 7 Android phone, but none of them could even come close to 50% of iPhone.

      and minute I go back to my beloved iPhone 4, I could breath easier.

      they all are just plastic toys trying to beat iPhone 4. I have so many friend have Android and they try to show off " hey it's cool, look at this"

      and I take it and next minute feel like puking.

      even thinking about Android make me puke..........
      once again Thanks Steve for changing our life, the way we communicate.

      we owe you forever.....

      Go and put iOS 4.x on an iPhone 3G or iPhone 2G and tell me how responsive it is...be sure to make note of how NOT laggy it is.

      The Galaxy S II is a very responsive phone, in fact, it is the best android powered phone IMO. Furthermore, I hate it when people say that iPhones feel solid. There is a difference between BEING solid and FEELING solid.

      Just watch the video and then tell me the iPhone is a solid

      hey you..... your user name says everything..... MOD please do not allow people to choose this type of user name.


      mod.... you should forward this guys detail to FBI.... I am serious........

      There seems to be a lot of fanboys in the forums here who thought that the commercial wasn't funny because of X Y & Z, just an observation to say the least.

      Commercial was funny, it was made for a reason and that reason was to throw some mud at apple and its followers, it accomplished that 100% for me.

      Job well done Samsung

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 sure sounds like it. It's just a shame they don't have them available for display in the AT&T stores. When I asked them why they said it was because it resembles the Infuse to much.....which doesn't make sense.

      Would be cool if the site admins could hand out temporary commenting suspensions for obvious trolls and excessive fanboyism so the people with real opinions could talk without shouting.

      Y'all need to chill. This commercial isn't funny, and is corny as hell. Wouldn't even be a joke unless there was a hint of truth in it. Blame the losers who really act like this.
