Samsung ads appeared in all major newspaper last weekend taking the war for smartphones to another level
The ads headlined “It doesn’t take a genius” and compares the iPhone 5 with Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone. The ad lists both of the phones’ features, with the Galaxy S III’s list being about twice as long as the iPhone 5’s. Samsung finishes the ad with another large caption that reads “The next big thing is already here.”. See Below :
After hurt by the $1.2 bn fine it’s bold move by the South Korean tech company, which has reason to feel confident as well as vengeful.
The Galaxy S III last month unseated the iPhone 4S as the top-selling smartphone in the U.S., the first time that had happened since the 4S launched. However, Samsung also recently lost a court decision concerning patent infringements on Apple, putting the company on the hook for more than $1 billion due to its rival.
After seeing the new Samsung ads, many Apple fans weren’t amused.
Gizmodo reported on Sunday that many of them had turned the new ad on its head, taking to Photoshop to adjust the ad to their preference.
Among the fake ads Gizmodo posted was one whose top caption now reads “Don’t settle for cheap plastic,” while another says it doesn’t take a genius “To figure out which of the phone is uglier.”
A third fake ad changes the comparison list, adding many iPhone 5 features originally left out by Samsung while also pointing out many of the Galaxy S III’s flaws and copied features.But I don’t get it why did the Apple Fan shorten the Samsung’s list. Is it because he just wanted to double the list ? Anyways..
Last year, the company Samsung Galaxy S2 ads poking fun at Apple fans who wait in line for the iPhone. Those ads also included the line “The next big thing is already here.”
