  • 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:



    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!

      Oh, so you also noticed how Samsung once again copied Apple!

      You know what's worse than a bunch of Apple fanboys defending their product on a site that's all about Apple product?
      A bunch of Apple haters that sign up for forums on Apple-only sites to start flame wars!

      Jb iphone with unlim possibilities doesn't exist sorry. Sounds like you were still addicted to checking cydia for unlimited tweaks when you returned the gs2. Prolly should've weaned yourself from cydia first before making such a decision. 2 days?!

      I had Jb devices for years before my first Android device, gnex. My wife currently has my Jb i4 on 5.0.1 and I literally lol when I pick it up once in a while to check on the latest unlimited cydia tweaks! With android you don't even need a "cydia" fcol!!

      Not an attempt to copy IMO but rather a thorn in apple's side from all the latest lawsuits. And don't bring up copying, hardly anything is original anymore and iphone wasn't first touch smartphone with icons believe it or not. It wasn't android either, but android was started before iOS as well. Honestly, now that jobs is gone apple now has a chance again without his stranglehold. He is the reason I lost respect for apple. Their devices are quality even if they are limited to the hilt.

      You'll prolly notice most of us started on iPhones and have had accounts here for a while. I still have idevices in my home that require jb's to be functional so I still visit from time to time. The main difference between you and me is that you were prolly very happy with the i4s announcement. That was the deal breaker for me and decided to get my first android, a gnex. If you ever have the opportunity to check one out in person you'll understand.

      I was pointing out that justibackwardsn considers Samsungs Ads "pathetic" for the way they "attack it's rivals customers" yet if Apple does it it's considered by most here as good marketing? justibackwardsn wasn't saying Samsungs "copying" was pathetic, but the style of the Ad was pathetic. So if you agree that Samsung copied Apples Ad style and also agree that Samsungs current Ad style is pathetic, then you also must agree that Apples Ad style is also pathetic? :no idea:

      I'm not an Apple hater, I'm just not a fanboy. I have several Apple products and I like them. I also own Samsung products, Sony products, Microsoft products and like all those purchases too. It's fine to prefer something over something similar. I prefer my iPhone over my friends Galaxy S II, but I'm not afraid to admit that the Galaxy S II is a kick-*** piece of hardware and software.

      Did ya see that....I'm able to like iPhones and also complement it's competitor! Life must be so tiring having constant animosity towards anything non-Apple.

      As I said in a previous comment on this story, this site started as a interesting place for jailbreaking and tweaking iOS and was a much more laid back place. Now it's a lot less about the Jailbreak Community and more about how can we write a click-bait article and start arguments about who's got the better products. Even the articles themselves are childish in their reporting.

      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?
      You probably are a challenged 7th grader...or 2nd....couldnt tell. Also notice how I didn't even write that post. It was someone else. Learn to read. Stop being a fanboy, or go somewhere else with that Metallica kid. "GET IT?!"

      Try something as basic as installing a custom recovery on your jb iphone nova.

      The quality of the reader community and staff articles on the site are on a terrible downward spiral that seems to be accelerating. The news about Jailbreaking a tweaks are still interesting but everything else tends to just be trashy, childish flaming of Apple competitors to serve as click-bait.

      By the way, You fanboys owe a lot more to Samsung than you care to admit.
      +1 and +1 again..... It gets intense up in here. LOL.

      Yeah that's if there's an exploitable way to jailbreak and it doesn't take eight months to do it do your research

      It was still a revolutionary device. Now it is even more revolutionary than it was before. iOS is smooth and responsive.. any other smart phone I've used I've had to tap the screen 2 or 3 times before it responds and when it does it is very laggy. This is why I prefer the iPhone over every other device that exists. I have owned most of the other smart phones on the market and none of them compare. Why do you have a problem with my preference? better yet don't answer that. We all already know why.

      If you took the time to actually read the articles you would know that siri can potentially be used to do things like set your home alarm or even turn off lights if for example you forget to do so before you leave home. How's that for "stupid lazy ****"? now STFU you terd.

      why should they even bother to do that? samsung should simply bow to apple, and apple should make their own processors that are way better than the Samsung processors they are currently using.

      There you're doing it again. And it was not a legitimate question, and now you're trying to be smart. This entire thread, you have been insisting that the iPhone is horrible. And then you attack people for saying that iPhone is better than android phones. That's hypocrisy. That's ridiculous. So before you criticize people for being apple fanboys, you stop being a FANDROID.
