Samsung Slams Apple’s iPhone 6, Watch, Livestream Fail in New Attack Ads [VIDEO]


Screenshot 2014 09 10 20 06 03

Samsung has launched a new offensive against Apple’s latest iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch offerings. The following six videos slam Apple’s livestream failure, plus the new larger sized iPhone 6 screens and the Apple Watch.

The following theme of the ads is “it doesn’t take a genius”, which depicts two Apple employees celebrating yesterday’s events.

Check them out below:

Sometimes live streams work and sometimes they don’t. Stream these 5 videos now.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that two windows are better than one. See more, do more with the GALAXY Note 4’s enhanced Multi Window feature.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that innovation is more than just a bigger screen. See the difference with the GALAXY Note 4’s 5.7″ Quad HD Super AMOLED display.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that precise creations require precise tools. Note the difference with the GALAXY Note 4’s improved S Pen with increased pressure sensitivity.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that the next big thing is already here.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that a battery should charge quickly. The GALAXY Note 4 charges 50% in about 30 minutes.

Good ol’ Samesung. Staying classy as always.

    These are pretty awesome. It’s like PC vs. Mac 2.0

  • Karemboo

    What a waste of money and time.. A bunch of cheap commercials.. you can do better

  • OliChabot

    I am not hating since I kinda like most of Samsung’s ads against Apple but those ones.. meh :/

  • Edge

    I like Apple stuff, but there’s truth in this. Jony and Phil get up there like they’ve invented something that’s never been seen yet and it’s old news. Apple hasn’t innovated or created anything in years. They are no longer a great tech company, they are a superb marketing machine (and I like Apple!). If I was an Android guy I’d be laughing hard. iPhone 6, welcome to 2012…

  • I own a lot of Apple products, and I do think the iPhone 6 is meh.
    No great innovation.
    Plus the NFC has no dev API and Apple Pay is not available in Canada while Bell and Rogers have their NFC payment solutions that works just fine. Apple is no longer innovative in the smartphone area.

    I’m thinking about switching to Android (again because I did it in the iPhone 4S era)…

  • They are pretty funny jabs. If only Tizen was as sharp as these ads.

  • bspence88

    I think these ads come off like Samsung is jealous. They are trying too hard.

  • sukisszoze

    May be the bandwidth was held back on purpose to give the sense that too many people were watching..Apple pays close attention to details in getting things perfect. I can’t imagine them under estimating the bandwidth to stream their presentation.

  • Ryan Peterson

    Those are lame and lazy…

  • Jaygoon

    I think, design wise, Apple Watch is probably the best aesthetically in terms of wearables in the market. A bigger iPhone? Necessary but not totally innovative either. Remember, Apple mocked Android’s bigger screens just 1-2 years ago, even creating a marketing campaign saying “by making the screen taller but not wider, you can still hold it in one hand” (iPhone 5 unveiling). I’m probably gonna go for the Note 4 or iPhone 6 Plus.
    However, hands down, Macbook Air and iMac are the best personal computers for students (although a lot of this probably has to do with how bad Windows 8 is).

  • Kevin L

    This is how Pepsi bashes Coke in a few of it’s older commercials.

  • Hardwire22

    Actually the Motorola watch is much better, in many ways

  • ChrisShield5

    I have to say as much as I’m an Apple fan I really didn’t like Phil’s presentation this year (or really the keynote in general).

    They did do a few innovating things with the watch, HW-level NFC security chip etc. But they hyped up a lot of BS that it took away from everything else they said.

    For example, maintaining the same DPI on their larger iPhones. So what? Every other display in the industry is at the same level or better. When they released the Retina display they were on the cutting edge. Now they are not, and we know it.

    I do think Apple’s displays are great, and not excessive (which is good for the battery), but don’t act like it’s a major innovation. Kills credibility. I would have been happier if they mentioned the power consumption of their display vs others or other *real* selling points. If you’re slogan is think different, prove it.

    I hate to say it, but I really think Apple is losing it’s ability to sell its brand. Where was Federighi? He’s the last guy who seems to know how to sell Apple products.

  • ChrisShield5

    They are both good. I think I prefer the Motorola, but Apple’s seems to have the better sensors and navigation. Too bad smartwatches are still useless.

  • ChrisShield5

    PS: All that said, screw Samsung. They are worse than Apple.

  • ChrisShield5

    Double PS: These ads are better than the last few from Samsung. At least they aren’t direct attacks. Much more tasteful IMO.

  • ChrisShield5

    These ads are better than the last few from Samsung. At least they aren’t direct attacks on consumers. Going after Apple directly. I’m OK with that (even though I still don’t like Samsung). That was the difference between the “I’m a mac” ads. They attacked windows not windows users.

  • Anthony

    Out of curiosity what is apple supposed to do come out with a ground breaking category every year? It took 30-40 years of the computer evolving to get the iPhone. Which is what from what I can see is what every other company has been iterating on for the last 6 years. The iPhone was a one in a million product that we more than likely won’t see again for years. Even things like the smart home, car or watch are extensions of that product.

  • ChrisShield5

    It’s not about needing to come out with a new iPhone every year. Apple has hit basically 4 major homeruns in it’s history. Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, iPad (although that’s kind of just iPhone). The thing is the last 3 came out within a decade so it shot up the expectations.

    What Apple needs to do now is realize that customers know they aren’t selling breakthroughs anymore and stop pretending. Be the best electronics brand, with the best experience. That’s enough. I felt the keynote wasn’t genuine. Too much “we love” and “incredible” when it wasn’t. It comes across as fake.

  • BrodieTheDog

    Awe poor Samsung has to slam apple because apples servers were swamped world wide and they don’t have the following to swamp theirs.

  • BrodieTheDog

    Awe poor Samsung has to slam apple for apples servers being swamped world wide because they don’t have the same following as apple, on their own release dates.

  • John

    what’s interesting is all the apple products they have in the commercial. Not sure if they just dummy products or their real but that means that had to get someone to buy or make this apple products just to make fun of them.

  • FragilityG4

    Hahaha and Samsung has innovated?

  • FragilityG4

    Dude they’re selling their product that’s why they use those words. They’re not trying to cure anything, they’re selling product to make money. Should they use words like “good” and “alright”?

  • FragilityG4

    Ugh! Here we go again … Who is innovate and how? Smartphones at this point in time are pretty much tapped out of innovation. So according to you, who is innovative and how?

  • FragilityG4

    It’s the classic ad choice of one company chasing another. Mac v PC, Pepsi v Coke etc.

  • Still again… instead of talking how their phone could be better, the need to discredit people who love (or in the case work for) Apple. I never believe in a company ad / pub who tried to lower the other company, so they could be best. And in this case, Samsung not only attack the new phone, but people who like them and work for Apple…

    For me, the best approach is always to show what’S better about you, your product… Show features… and what we can do. And maybe that’S why Apple keep winning prizes for their ads and never Samsung. And the best ads or more effective ones are the one we talk about… and keep talking about. Theses Samsung ads will be forgot by next week… but how many remember the amazing ad Apple did last holiday season for the iPhone ?

  • Edge

    Of course not. However, they shouldn’t act like they are at every keynote… They’re pretending the iPhone 6 is revolutionary and that the plus with the huge screen is their idea. Outside of a processor bump (every phone in the industry can do that) and a great new camera, everything about it is two years old.

    Like I said, I like Apple. I’m gonna get an iPhone 6. But, in this case, Apple played catch up and finally listened to what customers wanted (remember that the 4″ screen was the “perfect size…”)

  • Edge

    I’m waiting for the next good MacBook. I gotta say, it’s a tough wait while some of my PC friends have slim machines, retina display, and touch screens. Others have convertibles (tablet with full OS). I like the 11″ air, but everything about it seems dated now. I just can’t go back to windows. I like OS, and hi wit works seamlessly (now if only Apple mail cwould actually work to make that seamless part function…).

  • websnap

    Yes, Apple should just give up because it didn’t launch in Canada… smh. Not everything launches in Canada from Apple (or anyone for that matter). Not iPhone, not Siri, not iTunes Radio or Movie Rentals… and now not ApplePay. Get over it, when it’s here it will be less buggy. I don’t need them testing things out with my money. If something happens at launch let it happen to them and not us.

    Why does the NFC need a dev API? ApplePay does, that’s the part that matters. I don’t know what you think “innovation” is but if revolutionizing the payment structure with a token system, getting everyone on board that usually won’t even sit down together all without gathering personal data or placing themselves between you and your bank. Well, then, you just can’t be helped. Bell and Rogers’ NFC doesn’t work “just fine” – it’s carrier and bank specific. That’s the whole problem. You can’t be on CIBC AND Telus or Bell AND BMO or Rogers and RBC. With ApplePay, it doesn’t matter who your carrier or your bank is. It just works, and that is innovative.

  • DC

    Samsung sounds desperate.

  • * golf clap *

  • websnap

    lol, good or bad?

  • Good 🙂

  • websnap

    The difference being Apple got around to talk about their products in the pc v Mac ads. These are just vague jabs at “not us”… I guess it resonates with some.

  • chrisjohnston10

    These ads are funny. And in all fairness, Samsung does mention their competing product at the end of every ad.

  • websnap

    At the end. And that’s fine, but Like I said Apple used the bulk of their commercial to talk about their feature, Samsung mentions it in passing in the end.

  • websnap

    lol, one ad from a three year campaign with over two dozen ads. Compared to Samsung’s entire marketing campaign since – the first Galaxy maybe?

    These ads aren’t the worst, but considering they dwarf everyone else’s marketing budget I would expect them to – I don’t know – not spend it all ridiculing their competitor and instead focus on their features, the user experience, customer satisfaction… These just come off like a teen-geek is running their marketing campaign. Like that episode of Community where high school kids got into a “who is cooler” match with Britta and Jeff. It just de-evolved into grunts and everyone was made an out to be an idiot.

  • watershoray

    Like the apple map, poor battery, siri, long wait for apps to download or to open, occasional freezing and the new 16gb maximum rom of iphone 6 and 6 plus cheapest model?

    I still have 2 ipad 3 and two iphone 4 at home. Apple is never perfect. In fact Note 2 and 3 were the best smartphones(sold) I ever had. Buying Note 4 now.

  • sukisszoze

    I was talking about their marketing. Back in 2007 when Steve Jobs announced the iPhone on the stage, it was close to 9:42am. And on the screen, the iPhone showed 9:42am, Tuesday, January 9. They timed the presentation such that Steve would show the iPhone at close to 40 minutes into the presentation. Little details like that not many would bother to do.

  • Julien

    Touch ID didn’t have a dev API last year but they do now with iOS8… That’s always how Apple has worked: test their new components with their own products and then when it is ready open it to developers…. Nothing new here…

  • iFone

    The world needs more people like you websnap. Carry on with the message to all the TurDroids

  • websnap

    Well, I have no problem admitting when apple does something wrong, but this crapping on Apple just because they released something people like (and lets face it, the majority of the few people knocking the new iPhone are people who would never buy one till it ran android anyways – you know, never) is just getting old already. If you aren’t interested in it why visit (and comment) articles about it?

  • Because NFC isn’t only for NFC payments, by the way.

  • websnap

    Everything else could safely and effectively be done with Bluetooth till they got NFC right

  • Myself

    It’s fun to see people complaining about funny ads. Apple go against Samsung in court when Samsung make a product that look like an Iphone. When Apple make a product like a Sammy product, Samsung doesn’t go in court it just make funny ads.

  • Shyam Mc

    I totally agree, all other phones are just iterating the iPhone- be it body design, software design and perfectibility. Samsung stated that iPhone users should thank them for introducing bigger smartphones. Well if it weren’t for the first iPhone (back in ’07), there wouldn’t have been a Samsung Galaxy series or any such ever.
