    Samsung has released two new anti-Apple advertisements highlighting shortcomings in Apple products to promote both its Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1.

    In the first ad featuring the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3, Samsung depicts the phablet-sized smartphone next to the 4-inch iPhone 5s. Basketball star LeBron James is on the screen while a voiceover mocks the iPhone's screen size and quality, along with its lack of a stylus.

    Along with the Galaxy Tab Pro's thinner profile, Samsung also points out its screen quality and its ability to multitask, which has also been a favorite subject for Microsoft's anti-Apple ads. Samsung's Galaxy Tab Pro has a 1600 x 2560 resolution compared to the iPad Air's 1536 x 2048 resolution.

    Samsung has a long history of mocking Apple products in its commercials and has famously promoted its Galaxy line of phones by making fun of iPhone fans who wait in long lines for hours.

    Samsung is expected to release a new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, later this month, along with a new Galaxy Gear smart watch. Apple is expected to unveil both a larger iPhone and a smart watch later this year.

    I've never understood the point of these adverts.
    Sure, it shows how Samsung differentiates, but surely just laying into your opponent like that is weak minded marketing?

    But hey, I'm a university student with an iPhone. What do I know?

    These ads are pathetic. Unfortunately, the public is easily duped by "bigger is better" messaging and we will soon be hearing Galaxy owners bragging about their phones being "true HD".

    For Apple having such an inferior product, they're doing alright...

    Actually, those were pretty funny ads. At least what Samsung is saying in the ads is true: The iPhone screen is too small by today's standards (or at least there should be a choice of larger iPhones!), and the lack of true multitasking on the iPad is another fair point, though to be quite honest with only 1GB of RAM on the iPad Air it can barely handle ONE task... *cough*....Safari....*cough*

    It is not like Apple never done something like that before. Still remember Mac vs PC ads? Still remember how Apple comparing Nexus 7 with iPad mini?

    I didn't know Samsung made ads for Apple. I don't see how anyone who really knows anything about tech will believe this. Only blind sheep who don't do their research will believe such blatant excuses for features.

    Apple: "Thanks for the free advertising Samsung."

    I mean seriously, how much airtime/mentions did each Apple product get?

    I really wish the iPad and iPhone had better multitasking...that's the truth. Not a fan of a phone that can't fit in your pocket...I really don't see the point of phablets.

    Here we go again:

    People saying Samsung copies and the iPad sells amazingly well. Or,

    People saying the adds are good and Samsung has an edge. Or,

    People saying they want a bigger screen on their phone.
