Samsung Takes Shots At Apple In New Commercial

Submitted by: fancylad 1 month ago in Funny Tech


You gotta admire Samsung for trying to lure Apple users from their expensive, bloated iPhones. So how many Apple users are going to make the switch when it comes time for a new phone?

My son has an iPhone 7 and I have a 7+, before that we both an iPhone 5. My wife currently has a pixel, but has gone through multiple Samsung/google phones.  She switches phones about once every 6 months to try and get something that "works" but my son and I seem to be able to go two years or so before even really wanting to "upgrade" never have figured out if it the phones or the person......What I have observed is her android devices never seem to  operate as smoothly as the iPhones. YMMV.

dang007 I've carried the same phone (usually Android) for over three years multiple times, while others around me go through several (both Android and Iphone) devices in the course of a year. It is NOT a phone's fault when it is abused, or when people have unrealistic expectations for it. "Why is it taking so long to load this webpage? This phone is a total piece of crap!" Never mind the fact that they only have one bar of 3G out in the middle of nowhere, its always the phone's fault!

dang007 I have had 3 android devices over the last 6 years and never had them fail or not work. I have even given the old phones to my family. They are still in use...

I currently carry an Iphone. However, I DO NOT carry it by choice; its a company issued phone. My personal cell is an Android, a Samsung, to be exact. I can do anything on my Android that I can do on the Iphone, and then some. That even extends to work-related things, that my employer never set my Android up for; I set it up myself. The bad thing about that is, I think my employer honestly believes that their IT security is "top notch", because of how hard this stuff is to set up on the Iphones they chose to exclusively use. It took me all of about 3 minutes to set up all their "secure" items on my Android. Real secure, huh? Then, there's also the .mp3 file that I put on the Iphone with Itunes. I can still connect the Iphone to my laptop with Itunes, and find the file, but I challenge ANYONE to actually find the file on the Iphone itself. How ridiculous is that? Try putting something on my Android that I can't find.

whosaidwhat That's the big difference: freedom. Apple doesn't give the market or the users freedom to maintain their own property as they see fit. They can promise a sleek seamless interface if you buy into their processes 100%, but deviations are impossible.

toetagmodel2 To clarify what you just said: Apple feels that we, the average consumer, isn't intelligent enough to know what we want; they have to TELL us what we want, or we won't have a clue. THAT is one of my biggest problems with Apple in general.

The 'notch' in the iphone X would be making Steve Jobs turn in his grave.

I presently use both mac and pc, and while i can use both, i prefer PC dual booting with windows and Linux, (im hoping eventually linux will have native installs of windows programs). I can't stand the non-standard mac keyboard, but otherwise it's decent for what i use it for, and it has improved over the last 15 years (before it had tons of all propitiatory ports etc).  But i would never buy an iphone (i would take a free one though), and while i mainly use android, i can't stand google (especially that they broke the Linux license with android) and have never linked it up to an account.  I'd like to see a custom OS for android that works like linux does on a PC.  Yeah i prefer linux overall.

monkwarrior How did Google "break the Linux license" with android? Oh, by the way, there already IS a "custom OS" for Android that "works like Linux". Its called "Android", and it IS Linux. There is at least one thing that the two of us can agree on; Linux is, overall, the best OS out there.

monkwarrior But that makes no sense. If I understand that article correctly, it is saying that the usage is "illegal" because they didn't adhere to the letter of the GNU that Linux operates under by not making the source code available. If they didn't make the source code available, then how are so many people making apps for it? Many apps available require quite a bit of integration into the kernel to operate like they do. How are they achieving this integration without access to the source code? How can you possibly design anything to work that closely with the kernel without having the source code available?

whosaidwhat I looked up into it a bit more, and apparently it seems that it is now completely open.  But i personally have never installed another OS on my phone, however after just looking it up i may look more into it.  A google-infused phone feels like a huge privacy violation, but its more of an annoyance on my phone  because i haven't ever linkied a google account up to it

monkwarrior You want a huge privacy violation? Thats easy to get. Just use Apple products. They are known to do so, while continuously insisting that they don't.

I'm a mac fan. I've used an macbook pro for a decade. I can't imagine using anything else.

However, Samsung passed apple with phones 4 years ago. LG passed apple this year.
