Samsung anti-Apple ad (Apple Watch 001)

Galaxy maker Samsung on Thursday published a series of advertisements on its YouTube channel. The commercials have been designed to ridicule Apple’s latest announcements.

The six-installment series, which Samsung is running under the ‘Note The Difference’ tagline, targets pretty much everything, from Apple’s botched live stream to the iPhone 6’s screen size, multitasking and battery life to  — funny you should ask — the star of the show: the Apple Watch.

I’ve included the videos for your viewing pleasure right after the break so watch them now and join us in comments.

Let’s start off with the following video which spoofs Apple’s numerous problems with the live-stream that Dan Rayburn at StreamingMediaBlog.com blamed on the lack of provisioning and planning ahead of the event rather than on server/capacity issues.

“Sometimes live streams work and sometimes they don’t,” Samsung wrote.

And this one criticizes Apple for waiting two years to bring larger-screened phones to market, comparing the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus to Samsung’s latest 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 4 with a Quad HD Super AMOLED display.

“It doesn’t take a genius to see that innovation is more than just a bigger screen,” says YouTube description.

Up next, multitasking.

“Two windows are better than one,” says Samsung. The iPhone 6 includes a new software mode in landscape with iPad-like two-pane layout in certain stock apps like Messages, Mail and others.

The following video wants us to believe Apple has made a grave mistake by not adopting a stylus. At least they’re not quoting Jobs on this one (“if you see a stylus, they blew it”).

“Precise creations require precise tools,” argues the South Korean firm.

And just as you thought Samsung did not notice “a little better” battery on the new iPhones, the firm predictably shifts narrative from battery life to charging times.

“A battery should charge quickly,” argues the ad. The Note 4 has a fast/charging feature where the battery goes from zero to fifty percent charge in half an hour.

And predictably, an Apple Watch bashing commercial.

So what do you guys think about these ads?

Did they brought a smile to your face or were the jokes in bad taste?

    The funny thing is that these ads feel very apple-y. They took a huge cue from the Mac vs. PC ads.

  • Marco Bartolomeu

        Yet Apple isn’t the one constantly making jabs at Samsung like a petty child. And that’s exactly what Samsung is. Children.

      • Shadowelite123

        lol i thinks its hilarious to see an idiot fanboy show on on the products they claim to hate. This is why the android community is hated so much and why its is proven that like 85-90% of the android community are just fanboys and trolls. Complete no life losers that don’t even know what they are doing.

  • curtis

    This is just pure desperation from Samsung. They are basically saying “don’t forget we are still here” cause they know that Apple is going to make a shitload from these phones and watch. Just give up Samsung you will never beat Apple cause you sell plastic crap that not many people want and your software is even worse. The whole android platform is just crap. Yes i am a Apple fanboy and i am proud of it.

    • Shadowelite123

      Whats funny is that thats what actually happened lol. Samsung died.

  • curtis

    This just reeks of Samsung desperation. Samsung have to try to make Apple look bad so they keep what little users they have. Every ad they put out like the “Wall Huggers” ad is them cowering behind there crappy phones. Everyone i know with a Apple phone that has crappy battery life would rather they charge their phones everyday than have a plastic piece of junk that runs that fragmented crap Android. I see they didn’t put a ad about NFC. Maybe they know that when the iPhones do arrive and Apple go worldwide with NFC payments, the thing they tried to get everyone to use will actually now matter to everyone because it will just work, unlike Samsung’s effort. Yes i am a fanboy and very proud of it.

    It’s interesting how Samsung says that the new iPhones look like the Samsung phones of 2012, when every single Samsung phone, regardless of size, looks like the original 2007 iPhone. I think it was a federal judge who said that Samsung had “slavishly copied” the iPhone. I’ll tell you what. Make a list of the telephone features that Apple has copied from Samsung. Then I’ll make a list of the features that Samsung has copied from Apple. Then lets compare the lists. Mine is going to be WAY longer than yours.
