New Samsung Galaxy S4 Ad Pokes Fun at iPhone

Samsung's latest ad has made its way online (via CNET), once again poking fun at Apple's iPhone in order to promote its new flagship phone, the Galaxy S4.


The 93-second ad takes place at a summer pool party and has Galaxy S4 users showing off select features of their phone, like the ability to control a TV, air gestures, the camera and S Beam, which allows users to transfer content between phones by bumping them together.

Like last year's Samsung ad, which poked fun at the iPhone 5 launch, Samsung portrays the iPhone as uncool by having older, parent-like figures using the iPhone 5.

You know, you never see Apple making fun of Samsung phones or the company in their ads...
I guess it's just a good gauge of class.


You're joking right?

You clearly missed the "I'm a Mac" campaign.

Its the whole bully attitude, if you can't be creative then pick on someone. :rolleyes:

Most reviews have not been kind to the S4.

Why do they have to make the commercial so boring though?

innovation is dead. I have no desire to buy another phone after the iphone 5 for a while. I have LTE, I have a great camera, it's not to big. I'll be using this thing for years.

Those are some cool features, and you Apple fanboys know that if those features were on the iPhone, you guys would be praising and kissing Apple's ass right now.


This comment made me laugh so hard, you hit the nail on the head.

It's really great when I get to laugh. It's as though the Mac devotees believe its illegal to enjoy both phones. They're so emotionally invested they turn nasty.

I don't know about bullying... Apple made fun of PCs.

As for reviews, I thought most were positive, but with reservations due to the gimmicks and cheap build quality.

One thing's for sure... When you mix Android + TouchWiz + gimmicky features + dupe features (like 2 app stores), you end up with a very steep, frustrating learning curve and a cluster F of a user experience.

You people are hysterical. You trash Samsung day in and day out, but when Samsung makes an ad poking fun of Apple you lose your minds. Grow up.

It was mildly humorous. Did it feel longer than 1:30 to anyone else? At about the 30s mark I lost all interest.

If there was one thing I didn't like about the Samsung ads it's that they always seem way too long!
