Weird ... I saw an Android user who said: "Oh my God, you can download apps without frantically praying it's not malware?"

That's funny. Obviously inaccurate, but it's definitely funny.

the fact that the best effort they can make to advertise is an attack on Apple shows that the product can't stand on its own.

Marketing Budget

I thought they were going to use their marketing budget to pay Apple.

This company is really obsessed with Apple lately. Let it go Sammie.

Sidenote: The guy who says "yeah yeah but they make the coolest adapters" was on the TV show Bones!

Plays the muslim scientist.

"No I love the GS3. . ." Okay '3GS' Lol. Just found that little line funny.

I've never understood these commercials though, honestly who are they for? By promoting/mocking that 'other phone/company' doesn't make it's users want to switch any faster.

"We've had that for a while. . ." COOL! Your user experience still sucks so your point is null and void.

Thumbs down

So, this is how SAMSUNG sees people who buys Apple products...

I don't think they are going to get their sympathy with this add.

PS.: The funniest part is when a voice says: Wooow...That's a SAMSUNG!!!

Awwwwwwwwww poor wittle Samesung. Keep wasting money on your little jealousy ads that shows no comparison to the phones; only to your maturity level. Better start saving that money. With the iPhone soaring more popular with every phone released, sooner or later you're gonna need it lol. Especially that you lost over a billion dollars for copying the iPhone. Must suck living in the shadows of a supreme, superior company who has more money than the federal government.

I can't even count the number of times on both hands that I've wanted to share a playlist with someone. Because I've never wanted to. Ever.

You're right, it doesn't necessarily always mean that. But in this case it's true.

Wtf. Its honestly just kind of insulting. I'm much closer to saying Ill never buy another Samsung product again rather than running out and buying a GS3. Stupid.

See what I don't like is the fact that they keep trying to push S Beam and how great it is. I went to Westfield London (the one near Shepard's Bush Station) and they had Samsung pop up stores (glass cubes...wonder where they got that idea from?) and they had their new phones. I tried to do S Beam. I found it fiddly to navigate to it. And when I finally did, I tried it out with the Samsung S 3 next to it. After waiting for a minute or two, it failed. Now what's the point of that? iPhone has had the Bump app which is widely known and used and works a charm. Have used it on numerous occasions and never had a problem.

The thing that Samsung and Android users don't understand is you can do everything on the iPhone anyway. They see the update and say "we had that ages ago", such as Panorama. So could we. I've used many an app for Panorama and they work great. The perk of having a massive app store. But the update is Apple pushing a native, built in way of these functions, so it works better. While with Android, built in doesn't always mean better, like S Beam.

Anyway, I don't like these adverts. People should focus on showing of their features and not comparing and slagging off people who use the other. Let people pick what they like and stop slagging people off who choose another option.
