Why didn't Apple get mentioned in the article as an example? huh? They're been using false advertising for at least 5 years...Or you're bias toward Apple like always?
mixedfish, 05 Dec 2018What a dumb person, you sell your photo but then go out and embarrass your client. Will she... moremixedfished you are certainly mixed up in the head. Her picture's rights were bought by Samsung. It's just interesting that her picture using a DSLR was used by Samsung as a picture promoting their smartphone camera etc. Think before you criticize. That's all you needed to do.
Manufacturers using DSLR's to take promotional photos has to do with the quality of the photo on large prints and screens. taking a photo with an Smartphone camera is never going to produce the quality or have the high pixel count companies need to do large prints or High Def ads on displays and billboards.
I wouldn't call this cheating or defying the consumer at all.
They can take pictures with the phones and post that on Social Media yes, but for advertising campaigns a DSLR will always be best.

Will she... moreWhat a dumb comment.She didÂ’nt sell the photo,she sell the photoÂ’s rights (to be used for comercial or other purposes).The photo itself remained autorÂ’s property,other otherwise stated.
And for such an artsy woman,I doubt she will miss Samsung as a client.More so,sheÂ’s even more popular and controversial right now!Which is always a good thing for an artist ; )
What a dumb person, you sell your photo but then go out and embarrass your client.
Will she ever sell another photo again? doubt it.
Finally a comment section where everyone agree on something!
It was about time to happen here on gsmarena comment section!
All phone manufacturers resort to this kind of deceptive or straight trough false marketing claims.And this happens for years now,since the first phone cameras arived,since Nokia in its old glory days.No exception whatsoever,they are all guilty.
This is a problem that should be tackled down by lawmakers and regulatory bodies.As well as multitude others issues as planned obsolence for example.We as an individual consumers cant do much against bilion $ worth corporations,we cant even boycot them,as they are all the same(greedy and lying).But if we push for laws and stricter regulations trough our representatives,maybe just maybe we will put their claims on fair ground.
Cheers to all GSMarena readers for a first time ; )
all of you who hate Samsung for doing this so.
bs, marketing is one of the strategy why Samsung is famous, mind you all this is business bs,
so you really think a girl with a shiny glowing hair in an ads is true? lol even if this is true I will still buy Samsung phones because
based on my experience my SGN9 still better than your Chinese crap device.
ProJames, 04 Dec 2018They have huge ads in the metro showing "Shot from iPhone" pictures. At least 5m tall. There's... moreYup 7mp Iphone selfie camera stretched up to Billboard size. Hahaha give me a break.
Even US people make a fun of it. - https://petapixel.com/2015/03/27/pranksters-put-up-fake-shot-on-iphone-6-ads-next-to-real-apple-billboards/
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2018This is why I'm sticking with Sony. At least they respect their customer and wouldn't do such ... moreSony doing the same thing. Take a look at all their Z series and newest ad. It goes the same to every company. Marketing reality.
Ace, 04 Dec 2018Honestly im not interested in Samsung Smart Phone nowadays..its All cropyou care , and we know it...
androfox, 04 Dec 2018Sony does the same thing, no promo-photo looks alike those actually taken with sonys crappy cameras.Really 😂😂😂 they promote their shots on Instagram with actual users and their xperia try putting a s9 or iPhone photo up on a large screen and watch tge magic happens with that perfect photo
Shui8, 04 Dec 2018Hahahaha funny people think this a pathetic lies from a company for doing this kind of things.... moreThey have huge ads in the metro showing "Shot from iPhone" pictures. At least 5m tall. There's not a sign of electronic noise, ton of details, nothing blurry, stretched or pixelated. My S9's pictures or my sister's iPhone pictures start showing imperfections on a laptop screen (and that's normal, after all those small sensors can do so much before they hit physics limits).
I just hope someone goes to court against them for false representation, just to stop those deceptive tactics.
Pritam923, 04 Dec 2018Because, even mobile phones manufacturer companies know that...a large camera sensor is always... moreof course it just won't fit in smartphone ..
al those YT camera comparisons are just useless pointless and same
Every phone manuf just lying .. they just fighting each other and end user is cheated !
Lol, I'm not even surprised, Samsung have a big crisis and they make stupid steps day after day... Really.
And Samsung is not better then all the other smartphone makers, only in the blindfolded fanboys eyes. (Y) They are big cheater's to :-D
I guess its about the background instead of subject(foreground) with Samsung showing off how Live Focus works on their A8 ,Background could be taken with A8 given the amount of noise its most like A8
Because, even mobile phones manufacturer companies know that...a large camera sensor is always unbeatable...
