Samsung Takes Another Jab at iPhone 5 in New Video Ad

Samsung's already taken a not-so-sly jab at Apple's iPhone 5 in the form of a comparison spec sheet, however, it seems the South Korean company isn't done with Apple just yet. The company has released another TV commercial that follows in the same vein as previous commercials making fun of Apple fans willing to wait in line.

Of course, this time around, the Samsung users are toting Galaxy S III units as opposed to the 5-inch Note, but the idea is the same and the tag line says it all: 'The Next Big Thing is already here.' Check it out for yourself below:

    It is strange that people are willing to wait in line for a phone... but then again, I've waiting in line for stupid stuff before, so I guess I can't criticize too much.

    As for the ad, it is just touting some extra software features that I'm willing to bet 99.5% of Galaxy S3 users never use. But hey, thats advertising for yeah.

    Nice commercial.... iTardia is a disease that afflicts a large swath of the technologically illiterate population.... The cure for iTardia: do your homework! There is no royal path to technology.

    I live in a house divided. I'm an Android guy, my wife loves her iPhone 4S and hates Android. I picked up a GS3 a couple weeks ago, and even my diehard anti-Android wife is lusting after it.

    Bigger screen, higher resolution, simultaneous voice and data (seriously iPhone, it's 2012, get with the goddamn program). What's not to love?

    In the S2 you just hold down the home button. Click send and then do the same to go back to your video. Apparently, the formorons craphone that Apple just released wont even let you surf the net while on a call... Thought, it seems that there is a workaround that has been implemented by one of the data and service providers. But those unlucky to be using Verizon and Sprint can't do it....

    The sad thing is that the people lining up to buy the latest Apple craphone naively believe they are at the cutting edge of coolness (which in their feeble mind means "technology")---nothing could be further from the truth. There is nothing worse then a deluded moron that in an act of hubris celebrates his ignorance.

    My wife had an LG Optimus S (with Andriod) and hated it with a passion. She talked me into taking her to the store to get an iPhone 4S in June. When we got there I talked her into playing with a demo Galaxy SIII. She immediately fell in love with it and decided to get that instead of the iPhone 4S.

    Ever since then she has been loving her GSIII. In fact she loves it so much she wont let me play with it (I have an old first gen EVO). I am by no means a "Android Fan" but I am most definitely not an Apple person. Currently I am waiting for Windows Phone 8 to come out before I decide to upgrade because I am going to choose between that or the GSIII. Right now the GSIII has set the bar pretty freaking high.

    Actually you have been able to do voice and data with the iPhone since the 3G. It's the CDMA providers (Verizon/Sprint) that don't do it because of how the network works. Also, the Galaxy S3 only has a higher resolution due to a physically larger screen which means it needs the additional vert/horiz count or there would be image degradation, but the iPhone 5 display has a higher pixel density (326 PPI vs 306 PPI) which will actually result in a sharper image.

    For a lot of people it's really just dependent on how much they've invested into either app store that determines whether or not they jump ship from one to the other.
