  • Samsung's Anti-Apple Campaign Doesn't Seem to be Doing Too Well


    Apple and Samsung have been going at it for quite some time now and there will always be people who have their own preferences and like to keep it that way. Samsung has been doing its fair share of anti-Apple advertising, this was seen most recently with the “It doesn’t take a genius” advertisement which surfaced just this past weekend.

    As part of its anti-Apple campaign, the Samsung Mobile USA Facebook page recently uploaded a picture of the Samsung Galaxy S III and asked people the following question: If you could only take one electronic device on to a deserted island, what would it be? Much to Samsung’s surprise, the majority of the comments didn’t lead to what they expected to hear. Many users ended up leaving comments stating “iPhone” or “iPhone 5” instead of choosing the Galaxy S III.

    That is certainly a blow to Samsung’s efforts as one can imagine the effectiveness of the campaign being lackluster if such a response is being given. It puts the company in a bad spot and although it makes Apple fanboys seem a bit obnoxious, it seems to be pretty clear which device seems to be in more demand.

      Oh and look at all those Apple fans posting on a Samsung page...HOW DARE THEY! Apple sites are for Apple talk only and Samsung sites are only for Samsung talk.
      I agree.

      Those were just the fanboys lol. If I could take a device though, it sure in hell wouldn't be a iPhone unless its jailbroken. Anyone smart would go for the phone with the most features. But then again, you must think of the battery. Screw it, give me an old razor and I'll be ok. Lol

      Exactly!! I'm tired of all this nonsense Apple fans vs. Samsung fans... All technology can be improved upon no matter which company makes the device. Consumers will decide what's good for them in the end no matter how much marketing is thrown a them... In the end if a better device from some other company comes out, it will take the lead. For now its Apple, and I do enjoy many of their devices, but will that last forever. Unlikely.

      I don't know...Apple's been around for a long time. So has many of today's large companies/brands. Anyhow, I do believe a lot of those comments are just people trolling, like someone else said.

      I think the difference in between the regular sane person & the fanatic is "knowing" that a company won't be on top forever & "wanting" that company to fail. The debates are someone healthy outside of that.

      I would want a solar powered helicopter.


      Not a smartphone.

      Such a dumb decision on samsungs part tho. The Internet it ruled by trolls. Why posting such an easy trolling topic.


      @akamyself would love that.

      Yes, Samsung's Anti-Apple campaign is a complete failure because people can troll Facebook.
