Actually, to me that advert looks like it was created by clueless morons. They seem to think that some actor claiming that a Samsung phone is cool (what? Since when is anything made by Samsung cool? ) would convince Americans. I was told that it is actually aimed at Koreans who for some reasons fall for this kind of stuff. But to Westerners, this ad comes just over as insulting. And insulting potential customers is just stupid, stupid, stupid.

Congratulations, Samsung.

Man, you are a genius. Seriously, it is blaringly obvious but yet never occurred to me (and many others, I bet). Yes, Samsung actually paid actors to form an orderly queue to (pretend) wait to lay their hands on an iPhone. Pure marketing genius. Showing the public that your competitor is so superior that people queue for their products!

That's the genius. Wouldn't you want to buy from a company that cares about their customers enough to save them money?

Let's see. I _love_ Apple products. So if someone tells me "look at that great new phone that I bought" and proudly shows me his Samsung Galaxy phone, what do I say? "Great choice, man. Excellent phone". That's what I say, because it doesn't cost me anything and it makes him feel a little bit better. I could tell the truth, I could say "you should have asked me before you buy, and I would have sent you to the Apple Store where you could have bought an iPhone 5, which would have served you a lot better", but what purpose would that serve? It just upsets him.

So why would someone post positive things? Maybe it's common decency? Maybe it's a positive outlook on live, which means that person is more likely to have a happy marriage, no drug problems, and no need for an expensive psychiatrist later in life?

Second, the laws of classical physics still apply. Just because they don't necessarily apply to subatomic phenomena doesn't mean they're entirely invalid for describing everything else. Any new theories/laws that we come up with will not change what we already know about classical physics; they will just further explain phenomena that we don't currently understand.

Third: How the hell does what Apple did violate classical physics (or any physics for that matter)? You (and Apple's ad) are acting like making the phone thinner and the screen bigger somehow violates the laws of physics. It doesn't. The suggestion that it does is simply absurd. If anything, making one dimension larger while simultaneously making the other smaller is inline with conservation of mass/energy (but of course since Apple is not constrained on the amount of material they can start with, even that line of thought is absurd).

Certainly you've never studied anything, let alone physics.
Apple defying the laws of physics is just a new low for Apple. This ad is just another misleading ad from Apple. Is iPhone 5 smaller than other phones? Yes, it's smaller than some. Why? Here is why:

* very small screen. 4" may not seem that small but it's not a regular 4" sceen, it's a very narrow 4" screen.
* Apple skimped on a lot of components. Let's compare it to Samsung Galaxy SIII. iPhone has half the RAM, half baseband (radio) chips (which prevents it from having simultaneous LTE data and voice on CDMA networks), no NFC chip, no wireless charging, very small battery (SGSIII has 3x stand by time), no memory card/port. I think the laws of physics stay intact. Apple integrity? I am not so sure.

Yeah, the screen is narrow. It has a 16:9 ratio. Just like your mighty SG3 or the upcoming Galaxy Note II

I have a Galaxy Note and as a user of Android and iOS I often feel embarrassed by the rubbish you post here.

As for the rest of the hardware specs, Samsung with Android need probably all the RAM, Battery life and processor power they can get. Still, on my Galaxy Note it takes sometimes forever to start apps like the camera, despite all the hardware muscles. Button for changing still/movie mode is often unresponsive, too.

Wireless charging? So, the SG3 has it now, out of the box? Really?

Oh, battery life: when I leave the house around 9-10 am in the morning, with some browsing on the go, my battery is flat around 3-4 pm in the afternoon.

Now, do us tech agnostic users a favor... Just go away. But what am I smoking... You won't, of course.

Cheese

Am I the only one that noticed that the kid wearing the sun flower costume is already on the iphone screen, even as said phone is being lifted from below the 'capture zone' where said kid is located?

The "thumbs" one is so ironic... Previously they were making stuff up about how the iPhone's screen "is perfect" and should not be changed, and now suddenly the bigger screen is "perfect for your thumb" and that's "common sense".

So they are either admitting they had no common sense before whilst rejecting the idea of a bigger screenn or just think we're stupid.

EDIT:

Also, the panorama ad is a bit risky IMHO, they're basically showing something that has been available for years in 3rd party apps and for quite some time on the Android platform (and has been used in a few ads already, e.g. Galaxy Nexus'). They should have focused on all the new stuff that makes it different from other phones like.... Erm... Hmm... Let me think... The screen quality? Or just make four ads about how it's bigger and thinner. That would suffise.

You seem to have completely missed the point I was making and ignored my suggestion to take up another hobby. If you like android, good for you but don't tell me about it.
Oh Aristotle, have you forgotten your Socrates?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socratic_method

It is through opposition not blind faith where truth is revealed. Telling people that they are not welcome because you disagree with them is a simpleton's approach.

So you can stick your fingers in your eyes, and skip half the posts on here, or you can enjoy the debate between people that argue to have fun and make informed choices. So you're point was understood and now you know why I mirrored (mocked) it.

Honesty? It would also inform their next purchase decision.

Forums aren't like if your wife asks you if her new dress makes her look fat. It's about enjoying technology and understanding the decisions companies make.

It's sad that nobody at apple has the balls to say "no" to the ad agencies that are rolling out these atrocities.

I'm sorry but these are in poor taste, and they make Apple look one step below as a company, instead of being on another plane. These ads lower Apple to mere mortal status, and fail at elevating it as a company above the copycats and wannabes.

Answers:

1 - Good for you!
2 - I did not wrote they are invalid, but obsolete.
Go grab a dictionary and learn what obsolete means.
3 - How the hell does what Apple did violate classical physics (or any physics for that matter)? you wrote and my unswear is - What the HELL are you reading!?
When did i wrote Apple violate anything?

But learn this, It says that those laws ( Newton laws are just footPrints to build on ). English id not my mother-language but at least i bother to understand what i read before jumping into crazy conclusions.
