Wow! How pathetic! Out of 8.4 million people living in NYC, they found only a handful of people who prefer the Galaxy tablet and decides to boast over it… That’s samesung for you… Just be happy with the little scraps that they get off of the table. What a dog! Those handful of people were probably paid thousands of dollars for their lie.

No Samsung bribes, lies, and coaches people to pick Samsung. None of it is a true reaction to the hardware they show between the two.

It's not absurd that people talk up Samsung. I work in the cellular industry for a small carrier, and you'd be surprised at the people who will walk into the store, not look at iPhones and just ask about the latest Galaxy phone. Even after assessing their needs and determining an iPhone is a good solution, they recoil in disgust at my suggestion. The fanatic culture that surrounds Apple and how Samsung exploited that culture with their large advertising budget has really had an impact on how consumers view Galaxy phones vs Apple devices. To the point where they are often convinced to buy an inferior device because it's uncool to have working, dependable device like an iPhone.

Nonsense. Look how many people in these forums get so mad if you don't praise Samsung that they'll quit. Samsung has plenty of fans.

Those are shamesung employees trying to give shamesung publicity.  There is no such thing as REAL shamesung loyalists.

Nah!  There is no such thing as a "true" shamesung loyalist.  The few who appear to be are paid shamesung employees.

Don't forget that when the iPhone first released they were comparing it to other smartphones at the first iPhone key!

I would never buy Samsung garbage when I've been happy with my Mac and other Apple products for 12 years now.

Nonsense. All those celebrity iPhone users tweeting how much they love their Samsung products from their iPhone can't possibly be paid to say that. /s

Samsung fans have conveniently forgotten that, and they have erected a memory barrier against remembering so they can sleep at night.

Once a company is advertising using their competitor's name, they have lost. Pepsi lost to Coke, Dodge lost to all the other trucks, etc. etc. That said, you don't have to "win" to be successful...

To be fair, Apple's recent ad tells me that I don't know how powerful I am. That's complete lie. I'm a bike racer who trains with a power meter, so I do know how powerful I am. Much closer than anyone using one of these overblown pedometers knows.

There's no competitor's name mentioned in that ad. "Windows" isn't anywhere in there.

Show me any of those commercials where Microsoft, Dell, HP, or any companies are mentioned. They’re not.

 

This isn’t a laundry detergent commercial where they’ll outright say, “20% more effective than Tide!” The Get A Mac commercials positioned Apple against the rest of the industry as a whole. “Here’s every computer you would have otherwise considered. And here’s our stuff.”

Then it's a matter of interpretation and hair-splitting.

 

Apple have produced ads specifically comparing their products to competing products.  They are adds that invite comparison and which infer 'ours is better than theirs'.  They are completely different to ads that say 'we make widget n, and it has features x, y and z, so it's great, go buy one.

 

If you want to make a huge distinction that because names were left out the ads, they are therefore a different class of ad, then fine that's your prerogative, but I don't make that distinction and just view the compare and contrast type ads to be of a kind.

 

Apple's 'I'm a Mac' ads were far classier, subtle and humorous than Samsung's efforts, but their purpose was the same in my eyes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparative_advertising

 

"Comparative advertising is an advertisement in which a particular product, or service, specifically mentions a competitor by name"

 

of course it then goes on to mention Mac vs. PC down below, but PC isn't a company or model.
