Sigh. Samsung is at it again with yet another anti-Apple advertisement campaign. This time, the Korean-based company is using Apple’s iconic “Pencil” advertisement to make jabs at the iPad for being… get this… .2mm thicker than the Galaxy Tab Pro. Oh, that iPad Air is just so much thicker than the Galaxy Tab Pro. I just don’t know how anyone could grip it. It might as well be an encyclopedia.
Actually, the Galaxy Tab Pro does have a few things going for it, specs-wise, that the company notes in its commercial.
The screen is slightly larger at 10.1 inches and has a better quality display resolution at 2560 x 1600 with a pixel density of 299 ppi. The iPad Air features a 9.7-inch screen with a 1536 x 2048 resolution display with a pixel density of 264 ppi.
Additionally, Samsung points out that users can access multiple apps on the screen at one time. Users can watch a movie and check email at the same time. So far, the best Apple has come up with is the ability to switch between apps by swiping in Multitasking.
The thing that bothers me about commercials like this is that there is no reason Samsung should be putting down Apple in order to prop up its own product. Apple doesn’t stoop to such tactics in its advertisements. Trying to make oneself look better by putting someone else down is nothing but bullying and frankly makes Samsung look desperate as they search for ways to stand out.
If Samsung truly considered the Galaxy Tab Pro to be superior to Apple, its advertisements should showcase the fantastic features instead of spending half of the commercial showing us the iPad.
