Look at that. Just look at it. That’s Samsung’s latest anti-iPhone 5 advert. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Not only is it one of the most slanted product comparisons I’ve ever seen, but it’s got a pitiful message: “Our phone is better because our contrived spec list is longer!”
And not only that, but the bottom half of the Galaxy S III’s specs on this ad are meaningless anyways. They don’t inform you about why the Galaxy S III is actually a better phone. Who cares if you can “shake to update” your phone, Samsung? You wasted space by saying that your phone can make a “Direct Call” while the iPhone 5 can’t? Most people have no clue what “S-Beam,” “Smart Say,” “Picture In Picture” (was that feature named by a kindergardener?), or “Palm Touch Mute Pause” means. But hey, they’re features the iPhone 5 doesn’t have, so why not?
And I thought Samsung’s Twitter account was sad this past week. This is truly pathetic.
You’re right Samsung, it “doesn’t take a genius” to see that you have no clue how to market a smartphone.
