Thread: Samsung's Super Bowl Ad Takes Another Jab at Apple

  1. #21
    Regardless of the products involved, as an advert that was TERRIBLE! It was like a spoof advert you'd see in the Simpsons: "it has a pen?!" Who'd be amazed by that?

    It also showed pretty much no features the phone actually had, except the ones already on an iPhone. Why not show the UNIQUE features? Why were people getting so excited about that phone?

    Also, I've never been to a big line up like that, but I'm guessing people are actually pretty excited to be getting their hands on what is - to them anyway - the best thing since sliced bread.

    Okay will be honest here :
    For me
    Jailbroken iOS > Android > iOS . I possibly can't use stock iOS . Am talking about software and not hardware.
    As a complete unit an iPhone would be better then any Samsung or htc device hands down. I trust apple and know their devices won't be of inferior quality.

    Having said that 10.5 mil dollars on an ad like that -------> lol at Samsung or the person who says that ;-)
    Just bought a S2 yesterday even though I am kind of liking the display size ( prefer 4 inch then the 4.3 though)and freedom an user gets using it , It just feels better using an iPhone .

    M not a fanboy of apple/android . Both are good devices depending on what user wants. If some day jailbreaking community declines then yeah I would use android till then it's iOS For me.i still don't get the apple and android bashing..

    I had the 4S. Returned it for a Samsung SkyRocket... Sold the Skyrocket and lost money to buy back a 4S.

    That being said. There are MANY advantages to running a bigger screen. When I got the SkyRocket I was amazed by the NOTE. I wanted the NOTE. It was big enough to use as a mini tablet without having to carry both devices. It served the purpose of a "life size" agenda and not a tiny one. The device handling will be obviously different than a smaller iPhone and thus you get used to it without it being annoying. If people might seem weird to take it to its ear to answer a phone call, well... 1) I always have my bluetooth and 2) its not an iPad or something similar. It still just fits.

    While iOS is simply better in ALL respect to android (for me) there are some cues Apple should take if they want to dominate the market. Take for instance LockInfo. One of the things I missed from android was the ability to have my Todo List and calendar on my homescreen. Albeit I did miss from a jailbroken iPhone (when I had my Android) that I had it on the lockscreen.

    5.3 is NOT too big for a phone. Watch all the reviews of it and people have been in love with the device.

    Be a fan... Not a fanatic!

    (Unlike Chevy, who's doing it right with a light ribbing)
    yeah and ford called "Foul" to that Chevy ad before the SuperBowl was even done! lol

    I didn't watch the game -- forgot it was on until last few minutes... but that is a pretty cool ad. And, yeah, that's the way to take on the competition.

    I recall one of the complaints about the iPhone was that it was 'sooo big' compared to other current phones in the marketplace.
    If they want to keep it thin and keep making it wider, I predict more of them breaking due to people sitting on them as they put them in their back pockets, or sides of purses and forget as they sit or bang their stuff around.

    A stylus? Cool... saves you $3, if you care. The best part is encouraging people to 'sign' using the stylus -- I hope people don't mind having their signature stored and used later for fraudulent purposes -- Ah HAHAHAHA!

    When will Apple learn that we want the phone the way WE want it as its OUR phone NOT theirs.
    I doubt Apple are that smart so I will be looking forward to the Galaxy 3 as that will be an awesome phone.
    It's not that hard to jailbreak. An iPhone with Cydia cannot even be touched, and that's hard to argue. Who cares what something is like out of the box?

    Features, smeatures. When it gets too big to put in your pocket, it's not practical for me. Whatever.

The SGS2 is a pile of garbage, the screens have lots of problems with piss yellow calibrations and I went through 5 until I got one with a normal screen. I wished I had never left apple for two years as all I had was grief with unstable roms and real 3rd rate apps. Upon release of the 4s and iOS 5 I knew it was time to return, and I have been buzzing ever since. And now with iCloud and iTunes mate it really does rule. I hope android can respond as competition breeds innovation, but apple have well and truly taken a big leap ahead. Also ICS is a regression and definitely not a progression for android smartphones, it only looks and feels good on tablets really.
    Exactly... there is more to the phones than just the phone hardware itself. There is the operating system & the user experience. Android hasn't been able to get the second part right IMHO.

    If you go to their site in Safari instead of using their app, the link works there.

    For me its not the hardware alone. Apple makes some damn fine hardware, and its much better then any of the Android stuff out currently from what I have seen. Being in the Navy I see a lot of people with a lot of phones day to day, and I have had most of them Galaxy phones in my hand one time or another.

    What does it for me is the integration of ios and the Mac. Both my iPad and iPhone 4 are jail broken, but even when they were not I still love the way all my apps, music and setting are the same on all my devices. Im sick of helping my family members get the Android phones they have working even remotely close to what my iDevices can do just out of the box. As long as the Android builders dont get that part down, they will never have a chance to take over.

    Do any of you that use Android not miss the tight integration the idevices use, or is it more of a Mac user thing and its not done as well for those on Windows? I'm curious to know.

    What happens when apple makes a stylus for the iPad/iPhone and everyone starts acting like they invented it. Kind of like Siri.

    Exactly. The iPhone isn't the only Apple product. I love my MBP, iPad 2, Apple TV 2, and even my iPhone 4 that I use like an iPod touch. I just prefer Android for my phone.

    Or we can talk about what's actually happening right now, in reality and not false future.

    That's the biggest selling point to me, and one of the reasons that MS fails. Too bad MS didn't start out with their own PC before they grew to monopoly proportions our they might have had the tight integration between SW and HW that Apple does. That's also the number one reason I give when talking to ppl about why I go Apple even though, yes, they are more expensive: everything works well with everything else and I can expect enhancements to that in the future.

    I started with a Mac because I was tired of the Windows crashing BS and Linux was just not supported well in the main stream (not brick-n-mortar and no Genius Bar -- even for all it lacks). After that... Trying to get my Motorola phones running Windows Mobile ick (company policy) to play nice with Mac didn't work (software nonexistent or sucked), so I went iphone. All iPods worked with Mac nicely and then saw that if I went Apple TV I could get everything from iPhoto or iTunes on the big screen (no need to mess with Myth or any other contrived solution). When I'm on the road I don't have to answer any strange support calls from my family (other than, 'I turned the powerstrip off since I was leaving--turn it back on') because everything typically 'just works'. For all they may do wrong, Apple does a bunch right.

    It's unteresting to me how some of you are pointing to the Chevy ad as being more classy. They actually name their competitor and call them inferior. Samsung does no such thing. Everything is just implied. There is no mention of Apple or the iPhone whatsoever in the ad. In fact, in the superbowl ad, they mentioned people are missing "the big game" for this phone. There isn't even a phone made by Apple to be standing in line for right now. Once again, all the Apple die-hards are getting upset. Samsung is still making waves, I see.

    Samsung is doing well true enough. That comes with the territory of making a good product, not necessarily by making commercials. I think "upset" is an exaggeration, my opinion is that anyone who takes this all too seriously is likely an idiot. That goes for being too mad at it, or too happy for it. Use what you use and concern yourself with that.

    As for the commercial I generally thought it was a poor commercial to begin with, it was busy and all over the place. There was a point where I had no clue what was going on in it. Kinda silly too. The Chevy commercial was direct and too the point while still being clever and entertaining. Just come out and say it "we make a better product."

    BTW I love that the biggest "innovation" on most android products are bigger screen sizes and more cores... I see they are aiming at the crowd that likes to overcompensate.
    Since when did Android become hardware? Have you even seen Android 4? It kicks iOS's *** is so many ways that iOS decided to steal many of its ideas. Sorry, but iOS is playing catch up in a serious way.

    Remember the very FIRST iPhone keynote? "Who want's a stylus? Nobody wants a stylus!"

    ...And is waiting in line really the only thing they've got on Apple here? That has nothing to do with the product whatsoever, except for the fact that people want it, which is for a reason.

    The only reason Android ever puts out an idea before Apple is because they're okay with implementing it poorly. Apple takes time to make things work well, and more often than not, they're being worked on already - before Android releases them.
