Samsung "Street Challenge" Pits iPhone Against Galaxy Note

Thursday February 23, 2012 12:25 PM PST by Jordan Golson
Samsung has been taking on the iPhone -- and the perception of Apple's "fanboy" customer base -- with its advertising for several months now.

In its latest ad, Samsung pits a user with the Samsung Galaxy Note -- the company's new 5.3" Android smartphone -- against an iPhone user, seeing which phone is better for a few tasks of questionable use.

That woman sounds like she wouldn't even know how to make a call on a phone never mind anything else.

Unfortunately, the commercial highlights the skill of the user rather than the phone itself. Give the woman the Galaxy Note; I'm sure she still wouldn't be able to do any of those tasks.

In other words: 'I am depressed because my phone can't crop a head off and put it some place else'.

Jealous, upset, embarrassed and depressed ladies and gentlemen.

I'll bet you anything I can find an app in the appstore for every single one of those tasks.

So they find the most ignorant person on the street and ask them if they KNOW how to do things on their phone... and they don't. This really has nothing do with the phone - just the intelligence of the person holding the tool.

What a terrible spin - only in the world of marketing.

I have a Mac. And Photoshop. Sure, phones need some extra functionality but I don't want to create birthday cards on one. What next? The Samsung Galaxy Note with built-in fan oven in case you get peckish when you're about and about?

Grow up, Samsung.
