  • 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!

So before you criticize people for being apple fanboys, you stop being a FANDROID.
      Back off, never said idevices were horrible. This thread was posted to start a flame war, I'm simply on Sammy's side. 1 yr ago I was on apple's side, knowledge is power.

      ^You seem to lack both knowledge and power.

      It's funny cause even after several commercials they're still willing to get an iPhone, regardless if they are 'Samsunged'.

      I don't care what side you're on, just don't criticize people for their preferences

      what's your issue, dude? YOU'RE the one who got belligerent out of nowhere. By your own admission, YOU butted into a conversation that didn't involve you, and you did so with high-schoolerish name-calling (your "fanboy" garbage).

      I can see that you've appointed yourself as some kind of parent/moderator here, with all the lectures you've been doling out to various people about what they should or shouldn't say. So you must be the Resident Expert. Just a suggestion here, Mr. Resident Expert: maybe you should take your own advice.

      I'm not quite sure observing that a claimed text-to-speech function is spitting out garbage, and further noting that Siri's has a much better product than the example provided, qualifies as "fanboy" material. But hey, you're apparently the Grand ModMyI Arbiter of All Things Appropriate, so I suppose I should just defer to your authority.

      So how 'bout this, Chief? You win. You're right, I'm wrong. That dude's phone's text-to-speech function appears to be kicking out fantastic results, and Siri is nowhere near as good as his android's dictation product, let alone better. I don't spend my life on ModMyI (or any other site), and this is apparently YOUR sandbox -- you're The Man. Is that better?

      Last, I'm likely old enough to be your father.

      It's a good phone and I like it better than every other device, not just android. I give three removed about apple as a company, it's the operating system that the phone uses that I prefer. Put iOS5 on a Samsung galaxy and I will gladly use it. Android is inferior. That is my opinion and it will always be.

      This is not a place for a back and forth argument. Unless you have something on topic to say that does not break forum rules please do not post.

      I think Samsung galaxy S II is better than iPhone 4s.
