Countless forum sites, social network threads and other online message boards have noted an increase of posts and threads touching up on something which can be described as “Apple fans VS Samsung + Nokia” loyalists.
In reaction to a reported advertising campaign to-be headed by Samsung, the said campaign touches up on comparing the iPhone 5 against the Galaxy S III, with the campaign jotting down the respective features of the two mobiles.
Simply put, the ad positions the Galaxy S III as the better choice against the iPhone 5, since the said campaign keys in more user features over the newest member of the iPhone family.
Naturally, Apple’s fans didn’t like what the ad was implying, with a number of “spoofs” of the said ad circulating online, this time keying in a 360-degree take over the original ad.
The words “Cheap Plastic” had effectively drawn the Galaxy S III’s roster of followers, ensuing a series of unfriendly remarks and comments between Apple loyalists and Android/Samsung followers.
Key arguments between the two factions would touch up on processor power, multi-tasking capabilities, upper class image, price, how Apple’s gone the drain now that Steve Job’s isn’t around and the physical sizes of the mobiles.
Most notable of arguments would touch up on the 5 icon rows “featured” in the iPhone 5, something which Android/Samsung loyalist have been quick in using as a point to stress how “stupid” and “trivial” Apple users are.
Apple fans have been quick in bringing up Samsung’s inability to come up with beautiful phones, having to resort to copying after Apple’s designs.
As it is too soon to see how the iPhone 5 would actually fair against the Galaxy S III, considering that the S III has already been in circulation in retail markets in different parts of the world, we’ll all have to wait and see how the iPhone 5 gets to perform, once it gains sufficient traction in the hands of mobile users.”
