Samsung's Galaxy S takes the fight to Apple's iPhone 4

26 July 2010

Samsung are attempting to take advantage of Apple's reception issues on several fronts, activity that might have had more impact if they'd pulled their finger out before the recent press conference addressing the issue. Through their UK Twitter account, Samsung have been offering the new handset to Twitter users complaining about their iPhone 4. Before you attempt a similar blag, those feeling the love from Samsung have been marketeers and publishers, according to Slippery Brick.

Samsung have also taken to press advertising, by knocking their Cupertino-based competitors - this is the advert that ran in Friday's Metro:

    It's a Samsung though! Yes, it's Android based, yes it's got an AMOLED screen which means it's probably better than usual but it's still a Samsung. Don't get me wrong, they do have some nice electronics, just not phones.

    Hi Paul! You should have seen the advert in today's Metro... "Samsung Galaxy S - Getting a good reception" (followed by some reviews) I should have picked a copy up for you!

    Yet more crap about phones. BORING
  • PokeHerPete
    If they aren't going to give a free phone, they can go fuck themselves.

    Clever. I like it.

    Yes Shopdis, I agree, How very dare they post technology related news, on a predominantly technology based blog. Idiots.

    @ Paul Gadd - Yes it is a Samsung which in the past have been decent hardware with dog crap software..... pairing decent hardward with the Google Android software is genius though and this phone looks great... 1GHz Hummingbird processor, AMOLED screen and decent graphics processing..... @ Fonzhit - if you don't like articles about phones why read one, and take time to comment.

    This will go the same way as all samsung mobiles, will start off great then the wankers will drop support quicker than someone with Diarrhoea trying to get their kecks down after a vindaloo! As for the I-phone 4, I don't really give a toss about it, but it makes me laugh that Stevie Jobs has still got customers marching to his tune.

    @ The Fonzarelli - Prime example being the section on Apple's site where you can order a free case for it. The bottom of the page has a link to a website that basically says "look we've fucked up...but everyone elses phone does it too!!!"

    Loved that yesterday's Standard carried the Samsung advert on both the front and back pages, and then this unbiased piece of reporting inside: Olly
