Samsung is continuing its approach of pushing anti-iPhone ads on its YouTube channel. Today’s ad showcases two friends, an iPhone user and a Galaxy S5 user, speaking to each other about the upcoming iPhone 6′s larger screen. “Dude, iPhone might be getting a bigger screen” excitedly states the iPhone user  “That hasn’t happened yet?” slyly responds the Galaxy S5 user. Check out the full advertisement for yourself below:

  1. This is a truly awful ad. So cocky and annoying. The 5S looks gigantic, too, in an almost negative light in my opinion. I don’t know – I think the Apple bashing does more harm than good. If you like this comment, please check out my 100% free iOS app, PaperBox. gopaperbox.com

      How can you try to hard to point out the iPhones weaknesses? They practically self-identify.
      By the way, how is Maps these days. Is Siri working yet? Well at least the phone is shiny!

      • Please elaborate. Maps is working fine but to whoever that hates it they can go download Google Maps app so the problem is solved… Siri has been working fine as well. It doesn’t have that bitchy attitude like it did before on iOS6 so you can’t really have a conversation with it. Siri gets smarter and more improved with every update. Yeah Google Voice might have more commands and stuff but when I had my Note 2 (which i loved it by the way) it wasn’t as responsive compared to Siri’s performance. You gotta be constructive with your criticism. Don’t be one of “those guys” that just pops out from under a rock yelling “iPhone sucks” like an angry midget.

Bigger screens doesn’t make Samsung Galaxy better, it’s just something to sell… If Samsung had a great device, with the huge specs they throw in the ads it was supposed to be at least 2x better than iPhone, but that’s not what I see.

The Samsung plastic cellphones are ridiculous and a piece of garbage (I own both cellphones and I can tell that iPhone beats Samsung in ALL aspects). A bigger screen is just something that Samsung can’t achieve: smaller devices. For smaller devices, you’ll need better technology and hardware assembling and Samsung doesn’t have any of these.

        You’re right, but it’s more than that… it’s about waiting until the technology is good enough. Like you said, “do things right”. Apple wasn’t first with LTE/4G, in fact, I think Apple was 2 years late. Why? Because when the HTC Bionic came out on Verizon as one of the first LTE phones, it was terrible. The battery lasted 3-4 hours when using LTE, and then not even every market had LTE yet. So Apple, based on their “do it right” philosophy, waited until the markets were ready, and the technology was ready where you could browse on LTE for 8-10 hours. They make great products and only get there first if the tech is going to be awesome like the iPhone 4 with the retina display (no phone yet had invisible pixels) or Touch ID (not first but by far the best yet).

        With the screen issue, there are a lot of trade offs with these big screens. Samsung’s trade offs are ridiculously bad colors with those overly saturated AMOLED displays. LG’s new G3 also, in reviews I’ve read, has color and brightness issues. The larger panels just sacrifice quality for size. That’s not Apple’s way. If the iPhone 6 has a bigger screen, it’ll be a better quality screen than any other smartphone out there guaranteed. It might not have insane pixel density over 500ppi which your eyes can’t see anyway, but it will have more correct colors, better viewing angles, be brighter in direct sunlight, more true whites, etc.

        Ignore my other comment in reply, my computer went crazy and I pasted a different reply here which doesn’t pertain…

        Actual reply:
        Samsung does make parts for Apple, but this doesn’t mean anything. The processors for instance are designed and engineered by Apple, in-house, and are manufactured by a different arm of Samsung than the one that designs their Galaxy phones. In other words, it’s not like the CPUs in iPhones and iPads are Samsung CPUs. No, they are Apple processors, just made by Samsung’s chip manufacturing division to Apple’s design specs/blueprints. They could have any CPU manufacturer up to snuff make their A(X) processors for them, but rely on Samsung only because they have the manufacturing scale Apple needs. Apple is Samsung’s customer in this case, not the other way around. And yes, Foxconn assembles the iPhones, but this is true for a vast array of consumer electronics from many companies. This doesn’t really mean anything either. I work for a company that manufactures parts for commercial airlines, does that take anything away from Boeing? Large projects use a multitude of outsourcing.
        Samsung’s displays are big and nice and sharp, and that’s why they get awards, but they are far from the best. For one, their colors are way off due to how over saturated AMOLED displays are, in general.

      • Totally right herb! A preemptive marketing campaign doesn’t indicate market concern at all! Oh wait… That’s EXACTLY what it means! *smh

        Marketing is much more complex than a schoolyard bully mentioning someone’s name to prove they are unafraid. You are confusing 1v1 social interaction with marketing strategy and group psychology. But it’s always fun when fanboys post things about which they have no understanding… =)

  33. Samsung always come out with these commercials. it seem like they only do it when they have very bad sales. so to try and put apple down to have them lose sales. First off everyone knows apple is behind on the screen size. i guess samsung has money to waste on these commercials. A samsung why don’t you spend that money on people that might need food.

    What samsung doesn’t understand is that it’s not only the size that matters, it’s also the total user experience. Good for them having larger screens for longer, I don’t care… none of them have ever or will ever run iOS.

    We’d let you do the math but you seem to be having some trouble. It’s not you, Samsung. It’s Android. Well, you’re kinda making it you with pretentious ads like these, but that aside, I’d honestly rather use a flip phone than your S5.

  41. Getting a Samsung phone is like buying a hummer. By overclocking* and having neat, pretty little widgets and dynamic wallpapers, you can scream “look at me!” But when it comes to actually doing shit consistently—hell, when it comes to actually doing shit period—it falls short. Very short.

    Does it have good gas mileage? No.
    Can it haul anything? No.
    Does it handle well? No.
    Sooo… what’s the point of it?

    I’m glad you asked! It’s great if you feel threatened and have a small penis!

    *(Let’s be real about about overclocking, nerds. Its only use is to make resource-hogging games [which should ideally run fine without overclocking in the first place] run better [while draining your battery/overall life of your phone, etc. etc. whatever who cares about this really, though]. Now, I’m a pretty hardcore gamer myself, but think about this from an adult’s perspective for a second. You’re choosing which phone to use to get actual adult shit done and some kid keeps screaming “BUT YOU CAN GO WAY OUT OF YOUR WAY TO DO THIS THING THAT MAKES 3D GAMES RUN BETTER ON *THIS* PHONE!” Do you really care? Or are you more likely to play Chess on your phone and leave Diablo III to your PS3?)

Tell me i am wrong, aren’t both android and iOS UNIX based anyway? Just enjoy the tech, use whatever device you please. Its the same for the PS4/Xboxone/PC gaming. Just enjoy your games on the system you like. Stop the trolling and hating! When the iphone 6 comes out i am switching back to it. I feel that iOS is much smother and simpler to use then android. And thats my two-cents!! Peace!!

    Samsung should stop insulting Apple, it’s been too much already. They should just accept Apple as a competitor not an enemy as what it seems like. Just that they didn’t achieve their goal of selling enough galaxy s5′s, doesn’t mean they can mock Apple like this. They should just accept this as they have a whole range of smartphones to sell unlike Apple.

    I wouldn’t own a samsung phone or anything Android based for that matter, even if someone payed me a weekly salary I wouldn’t even consider it, I have 5 macs at home, one for each room, My wife has a 13″ MacBook Air, my son has a 15″ MacBook Pro, I have a 17″ MacBook Pro with a 1TB hard drive and a 256GB SSD in the optical bay with the OS and apps running off it (I put one in my son’s 15″ MacBook Pro too Just like I did in my 17″) and I have 2 27″ iMacs standing side by side connected with a thunderbolt cable so I can extend the screen and use 1 iMac to run Logic Pro and and the other as a 2nd screen to extend logic. Both my iMacs have built in 256GB SSDs too and the original 1TB hard drives as scratch discs as I used the unused built in SATA ports on the iMacs logic boards to connect SSDs to. All my macs start up in under 15 seconds as all have maxed out ram and SSDs. I love my Macs, our 3 Apple TVs, my Apple Time Capsule, 2 64GB iPad 4s and we each have iPhone 5Ss. Yes my 8yo son too. now tell me why would I ever introduce a incompatible Android device? no iCloud sync so whats the point.

    • Dear Robert,
      The only reason you should ever get an Andoid phone, is because your careless 8 year old child, is going to smash his iPhone at some point. Therefore he needs to have a Samsung or some such “toy”.
      Iphones are not for children of his age, no matter how much you think he takes care of it.

      Look, you have obviously gone way overboard in your Apple purchases, its not at all necessary with 5x Macs – one for each room.

      And what when the next iPad comes out? You’ll use a lot of money just to upgrade?

      No, I think you’d be fine with one macbook for your music, your wife can have an iMac. You can have one iPad that you and the wife share and sometimes your son can use it if absolutely necessary.
      1 Apple TV in the lounge is plenty sufficient.
      You and your wife can both have an iPhone 5S, thats ok by me, but your son must have an Android phone which he’ll break at some point in time.
      An 8 year old doesn’t need to have anything at all synced to the cloud. The pictures he takes are just fuzzy or something non-relevant and you know this. His list of contacts is very limited, just needs basic people like “daddy” “mommy” “aunty” “uncle” “police” “ambulance” and thats about it.

      There, I’ve just optimized your work flow and saved you a ton of money for free, because you went full retard on your purchasing budget :)

        Its bleedingly obvious he needs good, sound advice, when he went completely overboard on his unnecessary purchases.
        And he should be thankful, that some random person from the internet, took the time to asses the damage-situation and get it rectified for him for free.
        To be proven wrong (as in his purchasing case) is only a good thing, because he becomes enlightened and dosen’t make the same mistakes again (unless he dosen’t have the IQ to grasp the instructions of course) :)

        It’s bleedingly obvious you’re a completely clueless moron.

        As someone who works with this stuff for a living, I can tell you with 100% certainty that he needs NO HELP FROM YOU! Everything he has makes complete sense. 3 Apple TVs tells me he has a large house with multiple TVs, which is not necessarily excessive. The Macs, Time Capsule, iPads and iPhones all make sense for his family. Everyone having their own device is only excessive if they’re all not using them, which we have no evidence for. Robert clearly does some sort of work in music, which supports his need for both a laptop and powerful desktop. Giving the kid an Android phone is retarded because it will be the only device in the house not compatible with everything else. With an iPhone, Robert and his wife can iMessage with their son and he’ll get it whether he’s on Wi-Fi with no cell signal or actually has service.

        Even disregarding the validity of your argument, HE ALREADY OWNS THESE! Your advice does nothing to save him money and only makes you look like a complete asshat.

      • Dear Air Burt,
        Can you try to be more original in your posts, instead of copying&pasting my adjectives?

        Now, as per Robert, he has a computer in each room. For 3 people?
        iMessage?!?!? For goodness sake, we’re speaking about an 8 year old!
        Kids just need a cheap Nokia and nothing else that has plenty of signal on normal 2G/3G network.
        An android is ok as there can be a few games on that.
        Dosen’t need to sync anything at all with the rest of the family. An 8 year old contributes nothing of value as per photos or anything else. Kid is simply too young.

        If you’d notice, he wrote that he has some of the “newest” models, all 5S for example. Which means he’s in the habit of upgrading all the time. Total waste. He can get the new iPhone 6, thats ok, but his wife and child, certainly don’t need the latest model.

        As per music, it dosen’t take the “most powerful” desktop. A couple of MIDI channels and a few audio channels (this is where the CPU does most of its work) Its likely he goes completely overboard on this too, probably has 256 MIDI channels, instead of just keeping it neat and using std. 16.

        But thanks for your concern, my post was for Robert.
        Calling me an asshat instead of being civil, says more about you than it does about me.

      • Air Burt says:

        So you’re gonna continue in this stupidity? Let me make this as simple as possible for you to understand:

        -As he says, his wife and son each have their own laptop. He uses his iMacs for Logic Pro, which requires a decently powerful machine. One is used in monitor mode, but also functions as a backup computer. A two-monitor setup is the standard in music production. Having his own MBP as a mobile production machine is also not uncommon. Or maybe the iMacs are his work machine and the MBP is for personal, leisure computing. Either way, it’s not excessive to have 5 Macs because they are all serving a different purpose for different people.

        -As for the phone, get off your high horse. I’ve seen 8-year-olds more responsible than full grown adults. His son might have earned that trust. iMessage does not have an age limit. For every bratty 3rd grader, there’s a dozen perfectly well-behaved 3rd graders. They absolutely can contribute photos (which also don’t have an age limit) and such. Also, you’re complaining about this, but not the fact that he also has his own laptop?! His iPhone easily syncs his pictures to his MBP, along with all his apps and backs it all up. He may not have a lot of contacts yet, but he’ll be ready and already has experience using an iPhone when it happens. It also provides him with his own entertainment for long car rides and trips (the 2014 version of the Game Boy, essentially).

        -Newest models? That doesn’t mean he always upgrades right away. You’re really reaching with that one. His wife is absolutely allowed to have the latest model if she so desires; don’t be a sexist dick. Same goes for his son, in addition to everything I already said above.

        If you can’t understand all of that, you’re dumber than I thought you were. Robert doesn’t need your ego-laden post, nor does anyone else because you clearly don’t know what you’re talking about.

        I’ll say it again: kindly shut the hell up.

      • Air Burt,
        You’re right, an iPhone is probably the 2014 version of a Gameboy. Rather expensive Gameboy. An android for $100 is way better suited for a kid, if he’s just going to play and make the odd phone call.
        Also the radiation is also not so healthy for a developing child.
        Please don’t compare kids to adults, it just makes no sense whatsoever.
        Ask a child to do his tax returns and see what response you get.
        I didn’t know his kid has his own laptop too? I suppose thats ok, I had my first computer aged 9 back in 1983, so why not.
        Just the iPhone is a big deal and totally overkill.

        Now, as per his wife, I’m not being sexist at all. Obviously Robert is the “culprit” here in acquiring all this Apple gear. His wife just follows along.

        No, I’m afraid, you’re quite dead wrong on the fact he needs a mobile music thingy along with his iMacs.
        Usually you use one computer for your music needs, you don’t go dragging it along to the lounge or kitchen. I think Robert needs to learn to sit down and focus/concentrate on what he’s doing, instead of flying all over the place.

        I have 1 iMac and the wife has 1 computer. I have 1 iPhone and the wife has 1 iPhone. I have about 7 laptops (non Apple) and perhaps 8-9 stationary PC’s. We both share 1 iPad, although I use it 90% of the time. We have 1 TV in the lounge.
        I only use my iMac and sometimes my laptop in the lounge (because its connected to the TV, so it needs to be there)
        Otherwise my other computers just sit in cupboards. Totally unnecessary gear. But I didn’t spend a fortune on it either, thankfully.
        I also create music and 1 computer is absolutely ok for that.
        When we get a child, he/she certainly won’t be getting an iPhone. Never. Especially an 8 year old.
        Perhaps at age 12 it would be ok, though I’m not fond of the idea.

        But I’m not the stupid one here. Robert is the one who spent way loads of cash for 64GB iPads/iPhones (as if you’ll ever need that space honestly)
        More money than sense detected!

        Anyway, Air Burt, we’re all entitled to our opinions, I have as much right/privilege as you do to voice it, so asking me to “shut up” is pretty ironic.

        Meanwhile, M17 killed a lot of people last week and all we’re doing is sitting typing stupid shit. Strange world.
