See Samsung's Sunday newspaper ad about the iPhone 5. Whats your thoughts? (merged)
I believe this move is extremely cheap samsung, no matter how much they hate Apple... This should be out tommorow and samsung doesnt have 790 hours standby time xD it diesnt last more than 18-30 hours without 3G and standby wnt be 1 month...
I love how the Iphone screen is turned off making it look so dull :P
The ad breaks down some key specs of the two phones, but it's also a bit misleading. Samsung lists a lot of Galaxy S III-specific software features like sharing photos wirelessly between phones and tilt to zoom, but doesn't mention any iPhone 5-specific features.
It's a silly implication that just because the iPhone 5 doesn't run Samsung's software that it's an inferior phone.*Apple packed a lot of features into its iPhone software*that the Galaxy S III can't do like Facebook and Twitter integration, AirPlay, and access to thousands of more apps.
Am I trying to say the Galaxy S III is bad? No way! When I reviewed it in June, I really, really liked it! And I haven't tried the iPhone 5, so it's hard for me to really compare the two phones beyond the spec sheets.
But given that this ad is ostensibly a feature-by-feature comparison of the two phones, it seems disingenuous of Samsung to leave out a lot of great things the iPhone 5 can do.
Take a look:

It just goes to show that Samsung is a lot more worried about the iPhone 5 than they are letting on. Comparative advertising is less effective since by definition it draws attention to the competition. Apple's "I'm a Mac" campaign was a little bit different since it was humorous and never actually went into a spec by spec comparison.

This is very misleading. The Galaxy S3 is clearly a nice phone, but the bloatware that is installed on it just ruins it for me. Samsung lets carriers do whatever they want with the phone. Plus if you're on Verizon, they are planning on pushing out an update which installs their remote tools so a tech can remote in to your phone to troubleshoot issues. Which is a cool idea, but I wouldn't want that on my phone. In the end, the iPhone is still going to outsell the Galaxy S3.

Samsung is so petty.
Apple has plenty of features that Samsung/Google don't mention in that ad, such as iCloud, which is FAR more integrated and reliable than Google.
Plus, "tilt to zoom", are you kidding me?
******** ad, and it shouldn't take a genius to realize that

Samsung needs to compare themselves to other android devices, not the iPhone, because most iPhone owners don't give a *****.

Looks like an angry 12-year-old made that ad. I love the end of the Galaxy list. They could've put anything and it would've sounded equally stupid.
THE NEXT BIG THING IS ALREADY HERE!

Can someone explain how moving your palm across the screen for screen captures is a feature?
Plus what the hell are some of these features?
Direct calling: and all this time I've been calling people indirectly?
Group cast: is?
Smart stay: is?
Smart alert: is?
This ad tells me so little about the phone they are promoting.
Also how many of these so called features are only functional if the other person has another S3?

They should add this to the bottom:
I can see what Samsung is trying to do (steal customers from the iPhone) but I'm not convinced it will work.

It's funny that they list as "features" the horrible and silly "gestures" they came up with. They're the worst aspects of the s3.
Really... One of their great ideas is to tilt the phone to zoom in? Seriously. That's what it does. Tilting the phone to zoom is intuitive? It's like giving a phone to chimps. They have no idea what to do with it. Start hitting buttons, starting adding features without having any clue what they're doing. But they came up with a list of features. Folks who dislike Apple and android fans somehow manage to justify samsungs actions.

It didn't lag on ICS but it definitely doesn't lag on Jelly Bean

If Samsung, MS, Sony, Google, Motorola or anyone else does sleazy marketing its petty and pathetic
If Apple does sleazy advertising its art
Its an ad and it does make a point whether we accept it or not so why the heck is anyone offended? Just because we prefer Apple products doesnt mean competition shouldnt exist.

I don't see people being offended by this, I just see that most people think this is a lame attempt by samsung.
Do you ever hear Apple or most other companies insult consumers who don't use their products? well, Samsung did that. multiple times.
