If I were going to go Android, which I wouldn't, I'd try the HTC One. At least the materials are first rate.
Because it's funny? I know it made me laugh.
Obviously this explains the additional $400 Million Samsung spend in advertising - They used all the money to buy off sponsors, who are not loyal customers! At end of they day they all prefer Apple iPhone!
Send from MacBook running Windows 8 using Samsung Display!
Well, as a long-time iPhone owner, looking at a friend's Samsung 4 last week (which he retrieved effortlessly from his pocket) reviewing some photographs, I found myself feeling quite envious of the screen size and quality of the pictures was jaw-dropping.
until you see the S4 back plastic casing which is nasty
This is just another case that proves that if you need a phone to get things done with out a head ache, its iPhone!
I believe you are correct.

But you are not that naive. There is a whole sector within the marketing / advertising industry dedicated to social media . . .

I think what's going on is Samsung is doing a lot of sponsoring of various events, sports, music, etc. and when they do that, they pay these celebrities to support Samsung products, but in reality, many of them use an Apple product. It's hilarious, but some people fall for it.
A Spanish news site also noted that this kind of unattributed astroturfing is illegal in Spain. All advertising must be clearly labeled as such. So Samsung is not only unethical, but criminal as well.
On the one hand, the whole fiasco in the OP is hilarious and Samsung deserves the mockery.
On the other hand, at least one reason we don't see the reverse is that Samsung products don't come with a dorky "sent from my (whatever)" message*. Personally I prefer not to advertise for the companies I favor, and the first thing I did on my iPad was remove the automatic signature.
* Or at least my Galaxy Nexus did not, but "pure" Samsung products may be different.
Those "sent from my [phone]" thing is done by the apps themselves not the operating system (excluding the email thing as mentioned by someone else). Tapatalk, for example, does it on all OSes. I see plenty of "Sent from my HTC One", etc. when people are using Tapatalk don't turn that off.
Also, not publicized, but I noticed this image on No Doubt's instagram feed.
Gwen, the Windows Phone spokeswoman...
Granted, that could be Tony's iPhone 4/4S there, but they are both on MacBook Pros, so Apple fans, both.

You'd think Samsung would at least give him a phone to use, and show him how to use it.

Maybe he gave it away to his poorer relatives.

Didn't Oprah also Tweet on her iPad that she "loved her Galaxy Tab"? LOL
