  • Samsung Continues its Anti-Apple Campaign with a new TV Commercial


    Samsung recently aired a new commercial where it continues to promote its “The next big thing is already here” message referring to the Samsung Galaxy S III handset. In the latest commercial, customers are shown waiting in line for what is presumably meant to be Apple’s iPhone 5 (although the product is never mentioned by name). You can watch the video below:



    Customers are shown calling the device a “precious jewel” and expressing excitement that the headphone jack will be on the bottom of the device. There was particular attention paid to the new, smaller Lightning connector Apple introduced with the iPhone 5. Here, the Apple fans proclaim that the Lightning port is “all digital” but admit that they don’t exactly know what that means. The iPhone 5 buyers are also seen talking about how an adapter is needed to use the Lightning port with legacy accessories but one person has to say that Apple makes “the coolest adapters.”

    As per previous ads, the Apple fans that come cross Samsung’s latest flagship Android set are left wanting more as the features of the device are shown off or touted. An example of this would be two users on the street exchanging music playlists via NFC by touching their phones together. It was also noted in the commercial that the Galaxy S III has a larger display than the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5 and that is Samsung’s handset had 4G LTE connectivity before Apple.

    The Samsung advertisement comes in just a week after the iPhone 5 was unveiled. The purpose of the advertisement is to attempt to take away some of the momentum that Apple has gained with the announcement of the iPhone 5 last week. We'll see how effective the campaign is when more data starts to roll in.

      I dont understand why so many people here get offended by this commercial? Its a phone, and they are competitors in business.... I would rather watch commercials like these than some other commercials. I pre-ordered the iPhone 5 simply because I like the IOS market better, but I have to say the Samsung has some cool features too. Some of you people get carried away and need to come back into reality.

      The saddest part of all is that they have to make up fake over-the-top stupid things people say in order to then make fun of it. If people were really that stupidly excited, I'd give them some slack on making fun of them. But it's just not true.

      This is much in the same way I hear many gadget blog comment trolls make up fake extreme situations about Apple like "they're going to sue because it has a screen, and then proceed to complain about the fake situation they made up.

      Samsung, don't be like internet trolls. They're the lowest of the low.
      Been reading how a lot of those that are waiting in line are publicity hounds for various companies. They pay employees to stand in line and when the frequent reporter shows up they are touting their employer. I believe it was Cnet that had an interesting article about it.

And the S3 is the same, there is more than 1 model and yet apple only needs 1 iphone to do all. The screen thing is crap, all it gives you is more room to break in either your pocket or by accident, and Android is the worst operating system ever, i've used it and didn't like it at all. Yet it has advantages, expandable memory, faster processor, better sync with the pc since you don't need itunes, but most games come on ios first anyway, and are cheaper too and who really uses a phone for video or sound editing???. The problem with samsung it that it concentrates it's campain on the obvious instead of actually showing real comparisons, show the same game on both devices to see which is better, use the cloud software of both devices at the same time to see the difference, but stop comparing the screen, stop comparing processor and ram, actually compare the things we really care about. Oh and by the way the part about the grandparents using the iphone and the grandson using the S3...IF MY GRANDFATHER EVEN KNEW HOW TO TURN ON THE IPHONE THAT WOULD BE AWESOME SO DON'T TELL ME THAT THE S3 IS THE PHONE YOUNG PEOPLE USE, BECAUSE ONLY HIPSTERS AND PEOPLE WHO ARE TOO CHEAP FOR A REAL PHONE ARE THE ONES WHO BOTHER WITH A SAMSUNG.
      Wow this scream FANBOY!! in response to "who uses a phone for video and sounds editing" who uses a phone for gaming? You cant't make that statement about the video and sound editing yet praise the iOS for getting games first? Both fail in the gaming and editing department compare to a PC or Mac. You really want to compare the iphone and the S3 for gaming? Sorry but people don't care if Angry Birds plays better on the S3 or iPhone, they care more about what they can do with their phones. Last i checked the S3 was a REAL phone just like any other phone out there and isn't the price the same when you sign up for the 2 year contracts with the exception of memory expansion? But if your talking about an Unlocked S3 or iphone then i would get neither, too much money! Instead i bought myself an unlock Galaxy Nexus and saved the rest of the money. Lastly, this video might answer your question about why people keep buying iphones, you can find your straight answer at 2:38. But if you want my answer, is PERSONAL PREFERENCE!!! Pick a phone that suits your needs, end of story. BTW how come no one has reported on this? BBC News - New Apple maps app under fire from users

      ...uhhh
      PC vs Mac were awesome and TRUE, these adverts are just pure jealousy that no one wants to line up for a Galaxy S3.

      I'd be stuck on a island with a iPhone than a unreliable S3 with crap apps and a horrible battery.

      Simple. The S3 has the capability to overlay a video over another running application. By using this feature you can be watching a smaller window of the video while working in the other application (in the case of the example given the email app).

      Ladies and Gentlemen, i give you MetallicaFan1991! One of the most dedicated die hard apple fanboy. But seriously, stuck on an island with an iphone, what the hell are you gonna do with it? You most likely won't have service and your precious battery will die soon enough as well. Next time your in an island, try to take something more meaningful other than a useless phone, whether it be an iphone or android phone.

      Yeah, its a great strategy to make fun of the same users you want to swith over. Insult them and make them look stupid for waiting in line, that's a nice strategy to get them to your side. Samsung wishes they had those kinds of lines for the SGIII, this is just pure jealousy and sour grapes.

      SGS3 has an option for a pop up video in their video player, all androids can download it from the Google Play store and watch all videos (YouTube and other streaming websites as well as from the device itself) in pop up windows (kina like on the computer)

      I think the ad is funny. No hard feelings...the Apple cult does have its downside.
      That said, can't wait for my iPhone 5 tomorrow. I have a couple Android fanatic friends and they're just as bad...playing up the good and downplaying the bad. GS3 is a great phone, but IMO the screen is too damn big, and android is a jumbled mess. I like fine engineering, glass and aluminum, and a more polished user experience. That's why it's iPhone for me.

      Didn't really find the commercial that funny or very clever. Already the old Mac vs PC ads were clever.

      With all that I can see why apple would need to run those adds because of being an under dog to PC by far.

      Anyway all this commercial shows is that the "next best thing" has already been out but people don't care enough to have to remind everyone. Lol

      why get the S3?? The S7 will be out by the time the next iPhone arrives with an even BIGGER screen, a bunch of ******** stuff that you wont use, and it will still have the same ****** plastic construction quality. Screw Samsung and their POS phones that they never support more than a few months before they move on to the NEXT BIG PHONE!
