Samsung Galaxy S3 Ads Again Poke Fun at iPhone 5

Samsung Galaxy S III

Last week, Samsung had released a new Samsung Galaxy S3 ad which poked fun at iPhone 5.

Samsung has released two new ads, which are quite similar to the first ad, Samsung claims that the “The next big thing is already here” and mocks Apple fans lining up outside an Apple store-like location for the new iPhone 5.

Here’re some quotes from the ads made by Apple fans:

“The headphone jack is going to be … on the bottom”

“We’ve been here for five hours and it only feels like four … it feels like four tops”

“This year, we’re finally getting everything we didn’t get last year, the big screen, true 4G”

The second ad briefly highlights Samsung Galaxy S3′s features that iPhone doesn’t have, such as the ability to send a playlist wirelessly using the S Beam feature by touching phones.

The ads end with the now-familiar “The next big thing is already here” tag line.


Meanwhile, Apple has aired four TV ads for iPhone 5 that focus on the new features. As you can see below, in one ad, Apple takes a subtle jab at the larger screens of some Android-based smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S3.

Instead of poking fun at Apple fans and iPhone 5, and highlighting useless features like S Beam, which didn’t even make it our wish list, Samsung could have taken advantage of the bad press that Apple is getting iOS 6 Maps app in its latest commercials.

Thanks everyone for the tip!

    Seems they need 1 more shocker from Apple, Samsung don’t be Jealous, Your Samsung SIII sucks….

    • agreed

      A friend of mine says he will never own an apple product because of how stuck up its users are. When he uses my iPhone 4 he starts disliking his Galaxy S2 XD

    That Samsung commercial is really annoying. It kind of made me want to stand in line for an iPhone 5 even more, which I did. I love my iPhone 5 and think that it is a great upgrade. I prefer Apple’s fine tuning approach as opposed to making radical changes each time just so that people who are hung up on looks and expecting a completely new design will be happy for a few months. If it’s not broke don’t fix it. I was glad when the 4S looked like the 4. I feel like they have perfected this design with the 5.
    I wasn’t really expecting it to be all that much faster but I can tell a huge difference between the 5 and the 4S. LTE here in Houston is very impressive. I used to only get around 2 to 6 Mbps on 3G (or 4G as AT&T now calls it) but I now get around 25 to 35 Mbps. My signal is also stronger inside buildings where it wasn’t as strong before. I love how the phone is thinner and lighter (noticeably so) yet still feels just as sturdy.
    Samsung phones feel cheap and they aren’t as responsive. I have never liked the Android OS. It has always felt sluggish to me. It’s pretty obvious that Samsung makes the inferior product. Between their internal documents on how to copy the iphone, the fact that they lost the court case, and the fact that they can’t make a commercial without trying to bash Apple, it’s pretty clear that they see it that way too. I think that most people on the Samsung bandwagon are those who just don’t like Apple and will choose any competing product as long as it doesn’t have an apple logo. I have friends who always talk Android and Samsung up, but every now and then they’ll have a moment of clarity, forget about their stubborn stance and admit that they really like the iPhone and wouldn’t mind getting one as they are weakened by one of its many awesome qualities.

      I also found the old Mac vs. PC ads annoying. I guess what goes around comes around.

      • Steven

        I agree. I never liked those either. I also have always been and will probably always be a PC guy. I have never owned an Apple product until the iPhone. I have owned every one since the 3G. When it comes to phones, I go with the iPhone and never look back. Before that I was always switching around from Nokia to Motorola to fill in the blank. When it comes to my product decisions, I do the research and then buy what I believe to be the best product. I don’t care who makes it. If another company can make a phone that I believe is better than the iPhone, I’ll buy it. Until then, I’ll stay with what I believe to be the best.
        But yeah, you’re right. What goes around comes around. I was actually thinking of that very example the other day. I’m sure Apple doesn’t mind though. It’s just a form of flattery and one more way of letting them know that they are on top.

    “iPhone 5′s maps have been getting a lot of attention lately. But iphone
    users dont need maps, they just blindly follow everyone else.”

    I thought it was funny.

    “Hey, let’s go wait in line for a Samsung phone” said no one EVER!!

  • bcsc

    If you pay attention to the volume button placement in the video you will notice that to reach the top right corner, the phone is dropped lower into the palm in order for the thumb to reach the corner. In the beginning of the video there is a half inch gap between the hand and the volume rocker and that gap disappears to reach the corner. Coincidentally the camera pans in as to not show the phone no longer being properly cradled in the palm. When the video continues on to typing, that half inch gap magically re appears between hand and rocker. This is either coincidence or common sense says that this video is deceiving in the fact that the thumb does NOT reach that corner without repositioning your phone in your hand. Pretty sure it’s the common sense thing.

    I’d rather give my money to an American company with American engineers & designers than to Korea where they’re nuke n’ up! Apple devices are American ingenuity at its finest even if their assembled in China.

      You just totally contradicted yourself.

    • Steve Jobs

      There’s a difference between N and S Korea you American moron!

    I think these commercials are great. While I am an Apple nerd, this is great marketing to poke fun at the culture of Apple.

  • Alo

    Iphone 5 with ios 5.1.1 is much better, ios 6 is a looser

    • moe22

      yes

  • Sam

    God, these ads are so lame. They are taking the piss. Everyone knows which phone people are crazy about and do want to wait in lines for hours because its bloody worth it. God sung, grow the hell up.
