Samsung tries to woo Iphone users with a browser-dependent Galaxy exam push

Samsung has launched a new website to give Apple iphone customers “a very little taste of Samsung” from their cell browser. When frequented on an Iphone, the web site prompts customers to incorporate it to their phone’s household monitor, after which it turns into a shortcut to a simulated Samsung Galaxy device. The web-site seems to be the perform of Samsung New Zealand, MacRumors experiences.

The encounter may possibly be limited, but it’s a neatly intended bit of marketing. Open up up the digital camera “app” and a online video will immediately perform featuring influencer Logan Dodds, who describes Samsung’s camera app characteristics in the interface all-around him. Poke around the other “apps” in the dwelling display screen and Samsung happily marketplaces its phone’s other functions and accessories, even though textual content messages and even a phony cellphone get in touch with define other individuals.

There are also a couple of Easter eggs thrown in if you dig a tiny deeper. I particularly favored acquiring the “Friends with kids” get in touch with in the text information application, who sends you garbled nonsense anytime you mail them a message. Pry also a lot into the configurations application and you will be demonstrated a tooltip that reads, “We’ve simplified the configurations menu expertise, just so our developer could have a lunch break.”

Samsung is focusing on the practical experience squarely at Iphone consumers. Try to stop by the website with a different Android cellular phone and you get a information that states, “You’re on Android currently,” even though if you try out to take a look at working with a desktop browser the web-site provides you a QR code to scan with your Apple iphone. Indeed, it’s eventually just a little bit of marketing and advertising, but it is more innovative than most other smartphone adverts out there.
