Samsung isn’t a company known for honesty or telling the truth, which is what makes their latest promotion of the Galaxy S5 smartphone all the more intriguing.
Four new promotional videos were released by Samsung this week that show off some of the Galaxy S5′s most important and intriguing features. Among them are the S Heath fitness suite, ultra power saving mode, new camera features and the phone’s 5.1-inch full HD display.
All four of these features are fantastic, and all four of them can be made to look appealing without bashing the iPhone a single time.
Amazing. Advertising about a product’s features instead of bashing a competitor.
Does this mean Samsung will stop slapping Apple for good? Of course not — positioning iPhone users as mindless hipster sheep helped make Samsung the smartphone giant it is today. But maybe… just maybe… Samsung will start to focus on its own products a bit more now that it’s the top smartphone maker in the world by a huge margin.
Yes, Samsung is on top and sells twice as many smartphones as Apple and brings in less than half the profit. Even Apple’s lowly and plastic iPhone 5c outsells the flagship Galaxy S5. Samsung is on top because it copies the designs of others, and sells tens of millions of pieces of throwaway plastic disguised as smartphones.
Samsung has learned that bashing a competitor’s customers isn’t good for business.
