As Samsung has done with past TV commercials for its flagship Galaxy S5, its latest ad for the device again takes the iPhone head-on. The new ad, titled “Wall Hugger”, focuses on mocking the iPhone’s battery life while showing off the S5’s Ultra Power Saving Mode and removable battery features. And in usual Samsung-fashion, it also borrows a line from comments Blackberry executive John Chen made back in March… 

It’s certainly not the first time Samsung has gone after Apple directly in its commercials. In a recent TV spot from April for the Galaxy S5, Samsung took shots at the iPhone’s camera and display size and it’s done the same for Galaxy tablet marketing using iPads. This time around Samsung doesn’t go for a full side-by-side comparison with the iPhone, but it does mention the iPhone by name in the new commercial.

  1. good ad :) and before anyone says anything i’m an iPhone user never had android, battery is a huge problem for when you’re travelling, that is handy to have a spare battery and the power saving as well

    • Removable batteries are for ignorant companies, as the simplicity and seamlessness of no removable parts is always 100% better. Luckily if you have any intelligence you know where to find the innumerable battery cases for the iPhone, or external batteries for which to get you into you to your 24 hour mark when you decide to stay up all day that 20 times in your life.

        You have got to be kidding. Questioning someone else’s intelligence when you prove his point (that battery life is poor) because of the wealth of battery cases that you cite. I’ve been an iPhone owners since day one, but even I know the battery life is poor at best. Apple trades on the fact that the iPhone is desirably thin, yet users are forced to double that thickness with one of your vaunted battery cases, or hug the power outlets as in the commercial. Truth hurts…

      • @dksmidtx,

        And yet I never see these people hugging power outlet’s, just the Android folks who have removable batteries. Seriously? Ever heard of defective batteries? It does happen, and if it does, the owner is responsible to address it by going back to Apple and saying give me a new unit, which they GLADLY do. Try doing that with Samsung, they’ll kick you out the first three tries, and then on the fourth, they’ll finally agree, but take the phone away from you and won’t give you a new one for 3-4 weeks.

    • Sorry, but removal batteries got retired back in 2007, and should stay there. Only Android dinosaurs still cling to this notion the device is crap if the battery is non-removable. Like smoothies mentions, building a sealed device can yield higher build quality and smaller footprint, and with the advent of really good, small external battery packs, only Android has to suffer with this legacy stigma.

      • Ok, you are talking about smaller footprint and say about external battery packs?

        I take offence at being called an American. I’m from Canada.

        I’ve used my iPhone 5S for up to 3 days on a single charge, with moderate use. I’ve said it a few times here, likely the iPhone you had (and those other people have here that are complaining about the battery) have a defective battery. It happens, and just needs to be addressed. If the owner doesn’t even try to raise this to Apple, then it’s their fault and they can live with it. Go cry to someone else.

        And as far as mentioning journalists, please. Journalists have been calling Apple a doomed, dead company every year, for years now. Journalistic integrity and ethics have all but completely eroded these days, so the LAST people I tend to trust is a journalist, or even worse, blogger, which is typically paid off by one company to bad mouth another.

        But all of that can hardly be called doing something “productive.”

        The only productive things you can do on smartphones require apps. And no, it doesn’t take any more steps to use an app on an iPhone than it does an Android phone. And, as we all really and truly know, the quality of apps on the iPhone is simply greater.

        And on a side note, too, rooting Android phones is far more time-consuming and frustrating than jailbreaking simply because of the culture behind Android VS iOS.

        No, it wasn’t, because those “I’m a PC” commercials didn’t blatantly insult and make fun of USERS, it made fun of the PC itself. The actors in those old commercials symbolized the hardware, there was no direct mocking of the competition’s users and fans. Apple has never made fun of actual people in their ads the way Shitsung does constantly without any class.

        But what do you expect from a second rate company which gets customers just from marketing? Samsung now out markets everyone by large margins, including Apple. The HTC M8 is worlds better than a Galaxy (even according to every review), but HTC doesnt sell nearly as many because they can’t afford to smear the landscape with as many ads as Samsung.

        Samsung put old fingerprint scanning tech, which barely works according to every review, into their new flagship as a quick and dirty “me too” since they got caught with their pants down on that one to the iPhone 5S. I guess Samsung doesn’t think their own users are very smart trying to pass that joke of a scanner off as anything remotely as advance and effective as Touch ID. And still just using off the shelf 32-bit CPUs… It’s amazing how behind Samsung is.

    Like

    • Worse. At least with consoles there are less variables. This idiocy of who has the better battery is at best inane and at worst foolishly stupid. How long a battery last is so heavily dependent upon what the person using the device does with it that to speak of battery life as if it is some universal metric is pointless. I can use my iPhone all day in the town where I work and have upwards of 60% of my battery left. By the same token I can go to the lake in the country and have the battery be shot before the day is done because the phone expends so much energy looking for a cell signal that is spotty. And my relatives Android phones do the same thing.

      The only truth stated here is that if companies wouldn’t worry so much about the weight and size of their phones then battery life would be better, but that is also a half-truth. The vast majority of consumers are buying their phones based on the weight and thickness not the battery life. As long as the battery is as good as, meaning not really much worse than, my last phone then they will buy the thinner and lighter phone.

      And as for a swappable battery. That is a bit disingenuous. For that to mean anything means that a person has to carry an extra battery, and what is really the difference between that and using any of the myriad of USB chargers or battery cases? None. And for the person who states that the existence of battery cases proves that iPhone batteries are terrible, consider that Samsung also admits then that their battery life is terrible since they felt the need to make a removable battery in this day and age.

      As usual this is all mostly meaningless advertising speak.

      • Well said. I’ve observed the same for many years with all phones and the kind of coverage. A big variable for me with Android phones has been run away apps that burn out the battery while it is in my pocket.

      • You speak the truth my friend.

        I’m a minimal user when it comes to my iPhone; Meaning when I’m outdoors I only use it for Music/Spotify/Calls/Messages and maybe check social media 2 times a day. So for me, my iPhone lasts all day and when I get home I still have about 30-50% battery left. (50% screen brightness)

        I’m happy with the current battery life of my iPhone 5s and a increase in battery life will not appeal as much to me as it will for heavy/moderate phone users.

        So if a s5 user comes to me and brag about the battery life, features, graphics, speed etc, I don’t care. It’s not my main concern when it comes to Phones. I want my phone functional, simple and I want it to communicate with my Mac & Apple TV without 3rd party apps. Which is why I love iPhones and I will for a very long time.

I’d say I use my phone a moderate amount (which I realize is subjective) through the day at 50% screen brightness and I’m usually under 30% by the time I get home. A bigger battery would be awesome, but most people want their phones to be super thin. A removable battery would be incredible because you could have 2 spares while traveling. Apple would probably never do it, unfortunately, as they’ve historically been anti-people-messing-with-internals. At any rate, this commercial is great because it calls out a flaw and might pressure the powers that be to fix a problem.

    The real issue to me is that the Android OS just doesn’t look as good and I would rather carry a battery backup and use something that’s got a more pleasing UI. Also- maybe get off your phones and enjoy the real world? That’s an option, too!

I would say I use it pretty casually for text, some video, browsing, and a few minutes of games. I almost always charge it in the car on the way home. So take that as you will. As with the people who buy the battery cases for their iPhones, it’s not so much about the battery life as being prepared.

    Let’s face it: if you’re one of those “lucky” people who can replace their own battery, it implies you’ve invested in ANOTHER battery, right? Kind of the way iPhone users invest in charging cases.

    On the flip side, I will say that a co-worker of mine has the Galaxy S4 and had it plugged into his PC EVERY time he was at his desk. To be fair, I’m not sure what his charging habits were beyond that, so it’s unfair to judge his phone based solely on that observation, but he still noticed drastic drops in battery life even with their “ultra power-saving mode,” so let’s not jump to conclusions assuming Samsung phones are SO much better at battery life.

    free promotion for the iPhone, and they don’t even know it!! all those people in the commercial (more than samsung owners by the way) have the iPhone for reasons other than the battery.

    All the anecdotes from the scared-shitless crApple fangirls is very entertaining- nearly as much as this very accurate commercial.

    What’s undesputable is the fact that the S5 has a great power-saving mode and a removable battery. The ad doesn’t even mention the larger screen size or the plethora of features that iPhone may have in the future.

    Whine on, fans!

      Yeah. I’ve noticed that Haemorrhoid fanbois love reading about iPhone and then writing comments about it. They just can’t enjoy their cheap phones. A kinda pathetic.

  42. If you have your laptop with you (for example: Macbook Pro Retina), you can also plug iPhone’s charging cable to laptop USB port and leave your laptop’s lid closed. I am using it very often – you can fully charge from laptop’s battery I think 5-7 iPhones or more.

  43. People who have problems with battery life are most likely people who overcharge their batteries, have their screen brightness turned up to the max, leave the WiFi on so it’s constantly looking for a source to hookup with, and leave 5,10,15 apps running in the background, then they complain that, “Oh, my battery life sucks…” Well jeez, I wonder why?

  47. I hate how Samsung ads always bashes Apple so much. while iPhone ads are so unique that you really want to get one.

    Samsung is an awesome phone but it doesn’t compare the stability and build of the iPhone :)

  48. Samsung’s desperation for sales is just stupid! I mean, why try and sell their product when there are better phones on the market from other retailers. Samsung wouldn’t have even existed without apple to cheat from!!!

    Not a big fan of either iPhone, or Samsung. But, I do like the freedom that you have with the Android platform. Just got the new OnePlus One phone. By far the best phone out there. Battery, as well as the specs are incredible. And, the best thing is the price. It has the latest software, hardware, can be customized even more than other Androids because it comes with CyanogenMod, it’s unlocked, costing only $369.00! No need to sign a contract. If you can get a hold of this phone you will never go back to anything from Apple, or Samsung. My advice, buy it through PayPal new pay for it later plan. They give you 6 months, from the day you receive it, interest free, to pay for it. And, they even take $10.00 off for a new customer. It’s the best of all worlds! Good luck all!
