So Samsung wants to be the one with people waiting in lines for there next big phone while people walk by with something better and make fun of them? Makes perfect sense

taking advantage of people that dont know technical info is low, IMO. Samsung cant really brag about using android, because almost every smartphone uses it.
They shouldn't be trying to beat apple, they should be trying to beat motorola (droid), HTC, etc.

People seem to forget Apple took "jabs" at others with their "I'm a Mac/ And I'm a PC commercials", as well as iPhone commercials and public statements taking "jabs" Android users.
That being said, I don't see a thing wrong with what Samsung is doing. And this is coming from a proud Mac and iPhone owner.

As long as samsung products feel plasticky and cheap they will never compare to an iPhone. I have played with a Galaxy Nexus and the light toylike build quality takes from the whole phone experience.
Secondly, unless you are a unix freak or tinkerer android sucks. Unlike iPhone IOS, every new android iteration is different than the last. iOS is the same basic interphase as the original 2g. You know where things are always.
I am in no way a tech lightweight but android seems confusing to me, every phone uses it differently. I guess thats the price you pay for being pimped like a cheap whore on every manufacturer. I like Apple's uniform platform. Simple and Elegant. To me android has its icons, settings etc all over the place... whats with the 3 buttons at the bottom??
Finally, as long as the hardware allows it, every iPhone gets the same update, no one gets behind. On Android, unless you are a tech geek and know how to flash a phone you'll be stuck with the next to last os version because android is not equal on all phones, even if your phone has the horsepower under the hood. Imagine how Galaxy S or S2 users feel that ice cream sandwich is not officially available on their phone (id be like- what? I just got this phone, no update??). Atleast with Apple you desire the newest phone because of the tech specs and new design and with android you crave the next phone because your current phone doesn't run the next os version...
Some Android kinda own
Blackberry sucks ballz

What I don't understand is... How will Samsung get iPhone users to switch to their product by insulting them frequently in their ads? Sorry, but every iPhone user switching to a Samsung device is pretty silly

The commercials are accurate up to a point...I tell all my friends it depends what your in to to pick an OS if you like Facebook, arts, music, movie making, etc your are a Mac user or 80% of the time a hipster who likes to express him or herself.
If your a gamer them windows is your best friend and building is even more of your best friend. Since u can build a computer your get a lot for your money.
MacBook = $1000 Facebook machine
Windows pc = for the price equivalent Mac ($500) gamer

You guys do know that Samsung builds most of the things that make apple products so great don't y'all? Well the internal components anyway. That said, I like apple only because of the outside look. I hate them as a customer/employee.

Well there is a significant difference. The Apple ads poked fun at Windows and the way Windows worked (or didn't work). The Samsung ads are poking fun at Apple users. TPoking fun at people is considerably more mean-spirited than poking fun at a product. Their sales are strong, but Apple took the prize in the past quarter (quite probably due to the 4s release) so I don't think these ads are really helping Samsung's market share or helping drive new customers to their business. They are actually kind of polarizing, regardless of whether you are an Apple fan or not. I don't see that they have been very successful (the ads - not Samsung).

The Samsung Vs. Apple war is the dumbest war among fans of either product that I can remember. I get the marketing strategy on Samsung's part I guess. I wasn't impressed when Apple played the same game against Microsoft, but if that type of stuff entertains people
I expect that type of marketing from burger companies.

The Samsung ads are a breath of fresh air when compared to all the Verizon Droid ads - those are just plain awful.
Too powerful to fall in the wrong hands? Give me a ******* break.
Good job, Samsung. You make great products even if you have to borrow ideas from other people (which Apple does too).

That thing looks huge in her hands... >_>

The one part that Samsung has always fell short in is customer service (especially Tech Support), does this mean that they are going to now be providing tech support for my phones, so that I don't have to pay my carrier to process my warranty claim?

^ Lowest companies? They make great phones and have the best Tv's on the market.
