Samsung Mobile USA yesterday published a new Galaxy commercial to its official YouTube channel that once again takes aim at Apple fans who would stand in the line for a new iPhone.

Titled “Growing Up” and running 60 seconds long, the commercial features an iPhone fan and his Galaxy-toting girlfriend. After getting his first iPhone back in 2007, the guy over the years grows increasingly frustrated with each new revision that comes out while watching with an envious eye as his significant other enjoys her Galaxy phones.

The ad is a subtle dig at some of the more controversial iPhone “issues”, like the need for dongles after the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack, lack of stylus support, that notch on the new iPhone X and more.

The ad invites users to visit Samsung’s webpage dedicated to switching to a Galaxy.

How do you like the new Samsung commercial.

Chime in with your thoughts in the comments section down below.

    Yeah well iPhone X won’t blow up your house or car.

    • Benedict

      How you know already?? 😉

    • Blip dude

      Not sure how effective this clapback is, an iPhone 7 did blow up in someone car last year too. Doesn’t matter what the reason is, if a phone blows up it’s not good.

      • AOGV

        It blew up because he left the phone inside his car when it was like 100+ degrees outside what you expect to happen. It wasn’t a manufacturing battery issue like it was with Samsung

      • Blip dude

        Doesn’t matter, it still blew up. I’ve left my iPhone in my car under direct sunlight in 100F+ weather before and it automatically disables itself, and will stay disabled until it cools down, something his phone should have done but didn’t.

        Was that something that Apple looked into??

      • Matta Fakt

        Kinda does matter though…

      • Blip dude

        You mean a phone blowing up regardless of the problem being broad or isolated?? yeah it does. The one thing I will give Apple credit for though, of the phones that have blown up the past 10 years, they have actually looked into it ASAP, unlike Samsung whom simply made replacements that still blew up instead.

      • therealjjohnson

        Cut it out. They stopped selling the phone and made everyone turns theirs in. It was a faulty design. You look silly trying to nit pick a losing battle.

      • AOGV

        nit pick? This whole garbage commercial is nitpicking. they literally tried to blame the consumer as to why it blew up. saying we want more features slimmer batteries etc etc. don’t try and defend this loser company.

      • Riley Freeman

        love how you said an iphone which is singular where samsung’s problem was plurallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

      • Blip dude

        Yeah, because only one iPhone has blown up in the past 10 years huh?? Pff, isolated to broad, a phone blowing up is a problem PERIOD.

      • Riley Freeman

        dont get mad cuz i used your words against you. *kanye shrug*

      • Blip dude

        Mad?? And you came to that conclusion how?? You responded, cause you somehow felt it necessary to, sounds like the mad doggie here is you?? Of course I could be wrong.

        Also, Kanye shrug?? nice. Wasn’t he on suicide watch for a while??

      • big Rafa

        Samsung was baned from airplanes lol

      • Blip dude

        Okay, and?? If you’re thinking I’m brand defending then you are WAY OFF, just saying that no manufacturer is perfect, FACT!! As I previously said, doesn’t matter if a phone blowing up is isolated (iPhones) or broad (Samsung), batteries blowing up is an issue period.

      • big Rafa

        i just wanted to notice that lol

      • big Rafa

        nobody its perfect but just samsushi is baned from flying.. LOL

    Cute ad, but it doesn’t change the fact that every Samsung product I or any member of my family has ever purchased has broken within a year—usually within a month—and they either refuse to fix it or ask me to send it in and then “lose” it for 3½ years before sending it back, still broken, and telling me they can no longer fix it because it’s out of warranty.

    Given the choice between a Samsung and a tin can with a string, the tin can wins handily.

    • Benedict

      Strange… my girlfriend uses only Samsung phones and they are still working for years now. Btw we got 2 years warranty here and they fix everything except you broke it yourself.. Repairing is also much cheaper than iPhones..

      and what about iPhones in your family? All good? Never broken something.. even more strange 😉
      I could tell you some stories about iPhone issues from my friends and familiy…

      • OtterWithKids

        I know plenty of people have had good experiences with Samsung, but mine has been quite the opposite: TVs, printers, tablets, hard drives… they all break almost immediately and Samsung refuses to fix them, period. I’ve never owned a Samsung phone, but unless they reimburse me for the half dozen broken products they’ve sold me, plus a few thousand dollars for the inconvenience of spending over 50 hours on the phone with their worthless tech support, I’ll never give them another penny unless it’s for a product warranted by some other company.

        As for our Apple products, those that have had problems have generally been fixed for free, the only exception I can think of being when my daughter removed the case from her iPad and accidentally smashed the screen; that cost $49 to replace, per the AppleCare agreement. Everything else has been replaced for free with an equal or better model—even several out-of-warranty items, including an iPad that got run over by an SUV.

        Are you cursed or what :))

      • OtterWithKids

        We have had our share of technological issues! 😉

  • Raz Zor

    hahaha Love it!

  • Rob Matthews

    I won’t be buying a Galaxy any time soon (or probably ever) but I have to give it to them – that was a really good ad. And it does address some things I’ve been frustrated about with Apple. I almost feel I’m ready for a change, and there are a few phones out there that are very intriguing to me recently. Namely the Pixel 2 and the Razr phone. But I just don’t like Android OS enough to switch. I just wish Apple could get more creative with its hardware without charging $1150 for the phone I want.

  • Benedict

    I like the notch haircut 😉 hahaha

  • African-Techie

    Self-Proclaimed Fanboy Alert! 1) If I ever wanted to go out and buy a Samsung device, this stupid ad just went and ruined it – again. 2) Taking diggs at the competition’s drawbacks is childish – what are we, 5 years old? Imagine an Apple ad with people “Actually Buying Samsung Phones!” (the HORROR – sorry for that visual, sincere apologies) – [just rinsed my my mouth] Yeah, not cool man. 3) Did Samsung ever ask “why” those people are standing in lines – whatever it is, they don’t have it. Work on Getting It!!!

      “Let’s make fun of the consumer who we’re trying to market to. And please forget our phones blow up”

  • CuBoy531

    When you can’t innovate, then fall back to making fun of others while you secretly copy the features behind the scene. We all can see that Samsung. Thanks for the free advertisement for Apple.

  • Gerard Martinez

    Does anyone not notice how that guys hairline is supposed to look like the “notch” on the iPhone X!?!? Lmao

    • ClaudieX X

      hahaha… thats a good one…

  • Mike

    But they left out the part where their phones spontaneously burst into flames.

  • Blip dude

    You know, this really wasn’t a bad ad. It won’t get me to buy a Samsung because I’m not reinvesting in a new eco-system at this point, but it does demonstrate one thing, though an obvious one, Apple is ******* slow as ******* **** to implement things. And when they do finally implement such features it’s usually “it could’ve been better.”

    Edit – one thing I did forget to add, why isn’t Samsung opening stores in the US?? The one benefit I’ll give Apple is if I need a problem taken care of, I go to their retail stores to take care of the problem, friends that I have that are Samsung users have to deal with the carrier (experience may vary) or have to call Samsung directly for warranty claims, the F is up with that??

  • Riley Freeman

    i have always said this. Samsung and formerly microsoft spend more time advertising the iphone than apple.

    marketing failure 101.

    • Kaptivator

      Thought the same thing…Why make a commercial with another product in it. If bad or good, its still free marketing for the other brand.

    Weak ?

  • Mallouk Malek

    this is the first time i like that kind of ads from Samsung

  • Mirza

    Stop bitching the commercial is great, just because I have an iPhone doesn’t mean I should lie
