    I always buy iPhones, and would never buy a samsung, but the ad is pretty amusing.

    So I guess they were implying at one point that only old boring people want the iPhone and that young cool people want the SGSIII?

    And what is up with them referring to it as the "Samsung GS3"? I guess they don't even want to build a brand behind the name "Galaxy" anymore.

    Other than that, some of it was rather clever, but not enough to sway me :D

    this ad is a perfect representation of how a company like samsung thinks

    never miss an opportunity to bash apple in an ad.. rarely, if ever, mentions the competition in one of their ads...its all about the phone and what it can do.

    samsung is more concerned with what apple is doing than anything..its almost weird

    I just saw this on YouTube minutes ago, but it was an ad before watching a music video..

    Stupidest advertisement ever. They are obviously pissed as hell because they got the crap sued out of them.

    It's really immature to overly make fun of the competition. If you are confident in your product, let your product speak for yourself. This only shows that Apple is superior to Samsung, and Samsung is trying WAY TOO desperately to win over Apple fans. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Look at the S3 and then look at the iPhone. You can tell which product is superior from the get-go.

    That commercial was so annoying though... "but it has a bigger screen now", "yeah we've had that for a while" should have said "yeah I know, and ours are getting bigger and bigger"

    Samsung sucks, it's official. Well it's more official.

    And if I ever see two guys putting their phones together, I'll slap their teeth out.

    Even though I'm STILL leaving Android and coming to Apple, good ad.

    While I really like the sharing features of NFC, usually when I want to share something, I'm not near the person I want to show it to anyway, which is why I'm pretty happy about the photo stream sharing ability in iOS6, so I can share a bunch of photo's easier instead of using MMS or email. I have to admit that I would love to try out the GS3 sometime or any high end Android device, I just don't want to spend that kind of money on "spare" phone just to try it out.

    yes hipster bashing!

    i love the iphone, but it did make fun of the idiots who think everything apple does is "omg genius"

    but that has nothing to do with apples phone.
    funny ad though.

    -The $30 adapter everyone is going to have to buy
    -Bringing attention to the people waiting in line just to advertise/sell their phone
    -Finally getting features like LTE, bigger screen that have been around on other phones for over a year
    -Lack of NFC
    -Lack of true multi-tasking

    Good ad? In what way? It was drawn out and too long...and it was so cliche and predictable. They did a horrible job.
    Haha I know.. great tactic Samsung!

    So basically Samsung is branding their potential customers as stupid. What a way to win over new customers. Good job Samsung.

    Its bad enough on these forums where people try and justify why their phone is better but when a company starts doing it, it makes them look pathetic.

    Why is everyone going to have to buy the adapter? If it wasn't for my wife using her (imo stupid) Bose sound dock we would never have needed one. I would just make do with the one cable that came with the phone until cheap cables were readily available. I'm sure many are the same.

    Phones now a days are more about the software working with the hardware. I think after all these years android has definitely improved however iOS just works. It makes sense how many hundreds of phones are there that use android? Its hard to make an OS that works for so many different phones.

    a company trying to show why their phone is better than the competition is wrong? i hope you are not in the marketing business.

    there is a lot of truth behind apple customers being 'stupid' as you say. a lot of people buy apple for the brand and don't know much about specs, even when certain features like LTE, bigger screen have been around on other phones for a while.

    yah, many people are the same. there is a good chance they have some device other than the cable that needs the adapter, just as your wife does. cheap adapters are already available. that doesn't stop people from wanting to buy the genuine one.
