By now, everyone knows that Apple recently unveiled the iPhone 6 Plus with a larger 5.5.-inch display — an announcement that has left rival Samsung majorly peeved.

So peeved, in fact, that the company released an ad that throws serious shade at Apple and the tech experts who disparaged the Samsung Galaxy Note’s large size, Mashable included

The ad for the Galaxy Note 4 features tweets from folks who joke that the iPhone 6 Plus is copying Samsung’s phablet model with its larger display

Although the highly sarcastic ad went live Saturday on Samsung’s YouTube channel, it debuted on television during Sunday afternoon’s football programming. Naturally, the ad drew both positive and negative responses from commentators online. Read more…

Samsung has refrained from attacking Apple in its recent ads, but the brand has abandoned that approach with a slew of new videos that eviscerate the lineup of new products Apple unveiled on Tuesday.

In the ad above, two employees are sitting in what looks like the Apple Store, tuning into the (very dodgy) live stream for the big event

Other ads, below, lampoon the introduction of a bigger screen on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the lack of multitasking, the absence of fast charging and, of course, the Apple Watch. Initially, the employees are thrilled, but then reality sets in as they remember that Samsung beat Apple to the punch. (Remember: These are Samsung ads.) Read more…

BERLIN — After Samsung announced its Gear S smartwatch late last month, members of the press finally got their hands on the company’s third-generation smartwatch this week at its Unpacked 2 event in New York, Beijing and Berlin.

The first thing you’ll notice is the device’s gorgeous 2-inch SuperAMOLED screen with 360 x 480 resolution; it’s pretty big for a smartwatch, and so is the wristband. While the Gear S’ curved screen gives it a bit of style, the rectangular shape makes it rugged and sporty — not something you’d want to wear to a nice dinnerAnd while the analog-style timepiece face is a great touch, it still looks more like a computer than a standard, traditional watch Read more…
