iPhone 5 Ads: Samsung Responds with Its Galaxy’s Commercials

As Apple presented its new iPhone 5 ads for TV, Samsung has decided to release its Galaxy’s commercials in response prior to its Galaxy Note 2 launch on October 24th. You can watch ads yourself and comment on them under the article.

While Apple has created a big event from its iPhone 5 release, Samsung wishes to do the same with its new Galaxy Note 2 presentation. In case you missed the iPhone 5 features TV advertisements, you can take a look at them and compare the two companies’ marketing departments.

Personally I like iPhone’s commercials more. They seem to be more brilliant and clear while Galaxy’s commercials appear to look like anti iPhone ads to me. Besides, the actors aren’t playing their roles that great and everything looks pretty naive.

iPhone 5 Sales vs Galaxy Note 2 Sales

According to Apple reports, it sold several millions of iPhone 5 devices during the debut weekend. This is the record number of smartphones sold by the Cupertino-based company in such a short amount of time however analysts believed Apple would do much better and sell even more iPhones than it actually had.

As for Samsung, it hopes to sell three times more Galaxy Note 2 devices than the original Note units. This device will be released on October 24th in South Korea.

Apple vs Samsung

There were conflicts between Apple and Samsung. And now the South Korean company is partnering with Google and other American telcos in order to create modified products and escape from design patents filed by Apple as the Cupertino-based tech giant is trying to get over $1 billion from Samsung for violating them.

The two companies are competing in the market of electronic devices. Will Apple lose out to Samsung? What do you think about this? Hope to hear your opinion in the comments form below.


Apple to Use Facial Unlock System for iOS Devices?

The Cupertino-based famous giant has applied for new patents. Apple wants to implement a new process of locking and unlocking iOS devices via facial recognition system. This facial unlock software will not only become an alternative to iPhone and iPad passwords, but also lock the gadget via movement patterns, filter out accidental movements and distinguish children and users via the camera.

Apple plans to use facial unlock system for iOS devices in order to replace its existing security system which is based on passwords. The patents can just as well keep an opened gadget secure as people unrecognized by the camera will not be able to use the smartphone or tablet computer.

About a Patent

Even though Apple has filed a patent, this idea might remain just an idea and never see the light of day. The facial recognition system might be cool and not-so-good at the same time as it requires good lighting for the camera and patience from the user.

The patent filed by the California company has one interesting thing. Apple mentiones the possibility of creating multi-user support for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch which is possible today only due to the Cydia tweak.

Even if the facial recognition is not implemented Apple could attract more customers by releasing multi-user support for iOS gadgets. This is especially critical because of the deep integration of iOS 6 and social networks, Twitter and Facebook. Users will love it if Apple let’s them to easily swap between accounts when they want to share their iOS devices.

Facial Recognition System

Are you a fan of the password recognition system? Or would you like your iPhone to use the camera in order to lock and unlock itself? Just imagine that all you have to do is look at your display and the device will unlock. However if the camera doesn’t see you, your gadget will stay locked.
