    Samsung is Back with a New Humorous iPhone Bashing Ad


    It's been a while since we have seen Samsung employ their Apple-bashing marketing technique to their commercials, but it was such a success before, it was bound to return. Such is the case with the above video.

    This time, Samsung is poking fun at the iPhone's relatively weak battery life by depicting a sea of "wall huggers" forever tethered to the nearest outlet to charge their devices. This add also happens to be surprisingly apropos considering the new information we reported earlier about TSA flights into the U.S. requiring passengers to turn on their devices before getting past security checkpoints.

    As usual, Samsung's marketing team did a great job with the tongue-in-cheek humor with this ad. It almost makes you feel sorry for iPhone users, because as it turns out, the facts actually support the funny ad. Although what we see in the video is obviously an exaggeration, a number of studies recently have revealed that the iPhone 5S battery life is behind a large number of Android phones, even older ones like the HTC One M7 and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

    In fact, it's even behind the BlackBerry Z10 and the Nokia Lumia 1020. Yikes!

    My gf's iPhone 5 has always had better battery life than my S4, even after replacing the battery

    The ad is talking about being able to have extra, fully-charged batteries that you can change whenever you need to extend use.

    Ah, okay; I was going by the post's quote that said "a number of studies recently have revealed that the iPhone 5S battery life is behind a large number of Android phones, even older ones like the HTC One M7 and the Samsung Galaxy S4." No way is that true.

    i agree with you. Personally, i cant stand Apple products, but the Iphone has ALWAYS had better battery life than the Android, ANY android. The ONLY drawback on the battery with the Iphone is that you cant swap batteries, the ad is definitely misleading in that aspect.

    The summary at the end of the commercial specifically points to "ultra power saving mode and interchangeable battery" as the 'killer features' of the S5 over the iPhone.
