  • Samsung Continues Anti-Apple Campaign by Flaunting Turn-by-Turn Navigation App


    Samsung’s anti-Apple rant continues with a new television commercial titled “Samsunged.” Similar to its previous commercials, the new ad portrays Samsung users who continue to laugh at those who would wait in line for a new iPhone. The focus of this commercial is the Galaxy S II’s turn-by-turn navigation capabilities which the iPhone does not have.

    You can watch the company's new advertisement below:

    Youtube Video

    In the commercial, when asked by a girl waiting in line how much the person paid for the navigation app, the Android user responds saying “it just comes with it.” Here is where the Apple fans angrily say “Ohhh, we just got Samsunged!” hence the title of the commercial. The turn by turn navigation isn’t the only thing made fun of in the new advertisement. Samsung continues to subtly poke fun at the iPhone 4S’ same design as the iPhone 4 as well as its widely reported battery issues (which still have yet to be addressed).

    Everyone should get used to seeing more advertisements like these as the Super Bowl approaches as it is expected that Samsung will push heavily to promote their Galaxy S II during this time. What should be noted here is the irony that Samsung users are also portrayed as hipsters in this advertisement. For those of you who aren’t aware, typically Apple fans are classified as hipsters so the fact that Samsung is trying to imitate this image adds a bit of hilarity to the situation.

    If you’ve missed the previous released commercials I’d recommend checking them out just for fun. You can do so by clicking the following links: (1) (2) (3) (4)

    Samsung still seems to firmly believe that the Galaxy S II is superior to the iPhone 4S and even went on the record to say it was “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.”

    Did you laugh at this commercial or does it feel like more of the same? Share your thoughts and opinions below!

      Dude, Samsuck may make parts but doesn't mean they designed them, ARM make the CPU's etc, Samsuck only manufacture, they don't design, just because most electronics are made in China doesn't make them Chinese tech.

      And what internal parts of the iPhone did Apple design? The CPU...no, the memory...no, the display...no, the radios....no, the GPU...no. Apple neither designs or manufactures the vast majority of their components.

      You are clearly deluded or simply grossly uneducated in the technology and company you so blindly defend

      I do love iPhones, but Samsungs really stepped it up.The 4S is nothing compared to its Galaxy. Those of you saying its not, are just ignorant about androids. My contract ends somewhere around when the iPhone 5 comes out. If Apple doesnt step it up, I guess its android for me.

      Its had all those features and more for ages. Just coz its not called Siri doens't mean it cant do the exact same thing or better.

      I saw the Samsung Galaxy II a year before the 4S came out doing voice stuff. My brother wrote a SMS and send it to me all via voice. and thats standard.
      It's got so many features as standard or free that Apple refuse to add or you have to pay for on the iPhone.

      Dont forget the android market is a few years younger than the app store. Give it more time and you will see the same ammount of GOOD apps in both. I think the Android Market will have MORE GOOD apps than the pathetic ones in the App store soon. Just coz the App Store has more apps doesn't mean they are any good.

      I've got 3 iPhones and an iPad but I really dont want another iPhone. I will be looking at the next Samsung or a Windows phone as my next replacement.

      1 example why Android is so much better and easier than iPhone.
      How do you jailbreak an android? Tick the box.
      How do you jailbreak an iPHone? Wait for someone to find an exploit then make a patch then put it together then release it then tether it to the PC then eventually wait for an untether then wait some more then eventually after months of waiting you finally get to jailbreak. By then you forgot why you wanted to jailbreak in the first place as it took so long.
      Android jailbreak = 1 second
      iPhone jailbreak = 4 months.
      Now tell me the iphone is better than Android WHY?
      More good...lol

      Exactly how I felt about the iphone 4s announcement. I decided immediately to abandon the iShip after many years and idevices and won't ever look back. Android 4.0 is the perfect os to begin on android. The galaxy nexus does things you'd never think a jb iphone could do. After all the ridiculous lawsuits against Sammy I think it's hilarious how Sammy is firing back. The Google maps app on android is absolutely phenomenal and much better than any inav app I ever tried and makes the ios Google maps app look like a completely stripped trial version to the point it is barely usable.

      Pretty sure he meant "more good" as in "more quality" apps than pathetic rather than just "better."

      You definitely should just stick with your iphone.

      Umm LTE and bigger better screen makes t better. The GS2 specs win over the iPhone 4s's. Apple really needs to step it up with the next iPhone, or it's over for them.

      I forgot also to say that siri is much more than simple speech to text..The point in this comparison is that samsung just can't compare with Apple because they don't have OS..I had many phones to all OS..better for me and user friendly is ios

      The thing that make a screen better or worse is ppi (pixels per inch)..Maybe bigger for Samsung but not as good as iphone's..The way that samsung has bigger screen is that they made it's resolution higher but android with a 3,5 inch screen will have very small icons. So the only solution was to have larger screeen

      Gnex screen > retina screen ppi aside. Gnex is just under retina in ppi but enough that you can't tell a difference of ppi. HD and 4.65" is what to beat now.

      I switched from 4s to a galaxy s2x on telus, rooted it and installed a custom kernel, OC'd it. And am using the ice cream sandwich theme. I really couldn't be happier. Only thing I've noticed is the sound quality from the headphone jack on iPhone is better than the galaxy... Idk why lol

      Siri? NOPE
      AirPrint? NOPE
      iCloud? Nope
      I could go on....but we all know its a plastic knock off.

      And thanks Dude I'll look into this, topics like this always end up in huge fanboy arguments but to be honest I've had apple everything since the first gen touch. Always jailbroken as well.

      You really can't diss android until you've tried it.. The market even has a fresh new layout that looks spectacular compared to app store. Maybe it lacks in apps yes , but they will catch up in time. Every main app I used on iPhone I found on the market as well.

      Yes the commercials are a little ridiculous... But so is apple attempting to sue every phone company competing against them haha..

      As for bloat ware on android. It can all be removed after a one click root. Problem solved.

      Oh and flashing new overclocked kernels and ROMs onto android is the bomb... Way more exciting tha a JB. Really can't diss it till you try it.


      This post is mainly directed at that ridiculous Metallica fan kid.. iPhone users should be ashamed of your comments bahahaha

      You know I kind of really feel like the android/iOS debate is no different than the osx/windows debate. And there is still no clear cut winner.
      For people who want their phone to just do the ground work for them, I suggest iPhone. For people who love having all sorts of options to customize left right and center (which, personally, is actually a turn off for me...) android is the one.
      For that reason, it's almost like comparing apples and oranges. But iOS does have one undeniable "point" in its favor: it came first. Anything that was designed to "beat it" or even compare/compete with it was designed *in its wake*. Aside from that... Anything the other mobile platform designers chose to include as functions, apple could have done the same with (as it did with the notifications bar)... but for the most part apple chose not to, because of a specific experience they wanted their users to have. If its not the experience you like or want, don't go with them!
      When it comes to a phone, I only want apple. When it comes to a tablet - which I don't have yet - I plan to own one of each.

      And as for the Samsung ads... I like Samsung (especially their TVs), but I have to agree with someone else that they feel desperate.
      I know Samsung is mad at Apple for keeping them tied up in litigation, but I actually think the fact that Apple wants to hurt their sales implies that Samsung must actually have a decent product, whereas their commercials detract from that image and make the company look to be trying too hard.

      yes, really! really! your entire post was about how everything i could ever imagine doing on my iPhone -- stock or jailbroken -- can already be done on an android. and, apparently to prove this fact, you ended your post by claiming you had just dictated your post on the android speech-to-text feature.

      so i pointed out that your android speech-to-text feature is a POS compared to the iPhone's. my iPhone puts spaces where they need to go. it spells words correctly. it uses apostrophes for contractions and possessives where appropriate, and doesn't use apostrophes where inappropriate -- i don't look like a challenged 7th grader when I'm done dictating something on the iPhone. the result of your android speech-to-text use, however, makes its user look uneducated and simple.

      in short, the android speech-to-text feature -- if in fact you were even using it to make your post -- is clearly a piece of garbage compared to the iPhone's.

      so i'm left to wonder if the rest of the "features i could ever imagine on my iPhone, but which are already on androids" are just as awful. well, no thanks -- i'll just keep using features that work, thanks.

      get it?

      So I went out and purchased the GSII after hearing some of my friends talk crapped about MY iphone 4. spent two days with it, caressed it, whispered sweet nothings to it, THEN put it up for sale on Craigslist cause I couldn't find one thing about this phone that could stop me from checking cydia for cool stuff I could do to MY iphone.... those who say it is better have apparently never had a Jailbroken phone with its unlimited possibilities.
