Samsung Ad Takes a Dig at Antennagate

Samsung’s latest print ad for the Galaxy S series of phones is one of those coy, but highly effective swipes at a competitor.  Without calling the iPhone 4 out directly, it’s very obvious what the handset maker is hinting at.  It says everything without saying anything.

Might we add how nice it is to see the green Android logo sitting there rather prominently?

    I think you’re seeing what you wanna see here. A cell phone ad with signal bars is a crack at iphone 4 all of a sudden? Really?

      it's more of a swipe at AT&T in general with their more bars in more places campaign.

    Cant be a swipe at ATT cuz they do sell the galaxy S with ATT. If i was HTC, Samsung, or Moto i would run an ad simply saying "We know touching phone antenna will cause it to lose signal, that's why we hide ours inside and in a place where people dont normally touch while using the device."

    It can't be a swipe at AT&T because the add appeared in a British newspaper.

    At least Apple update their phones, unlike Samsung.

    Samsung stops to support their phones only sosme months old int the market, to force you to buy another.

    Don't waste your money, avoid Android Samsung phones.
