Samsung has phone bending down. They're well on their way to avatar status.

If you want to test whether or not being sat on by puny, inferior human butts will bend today's giant smartphones, you're going to need a robot butt. Apple and Samsung both have custom robutts that tirelessly, mercilessly test countless smartphones by getting all butt-dial on them, and it looks like Samsung has the better butt.

I only wish these weren't so accurate.

In the world of computers, Apple may still be able to play the scrappy underdog card, but in the mobile arena, they're the ones attracting the attack ads from those who would challenge their dominance. Samsung wasted no time throwing together this "It Doesn't Take a Genius" ad series mocking all the fairly mockable moments from Apple's iPhone 6/Apple Watch announcement stream on Tuesday. (Full series of ads after the jump.)

Samsung Turns the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Into an Ad, Makes Us Cringe


Look, people have their own opinions on the ALS ice bucket challenge. I personally think it's doing a great job at bringing attention to a good cause and can't fault it or anyone who participates, and it's also entertaining, which only helps spread the word. I've heard complaints that people focus more on the ice bucket aspect than they do on remembering what it's for, but this Samsung video is the first time I've actually felt like I was seeing an ad instead of a charity effort.

Yes, Apple Had an Employee Named Sam Sung, Of Course He’s Auctioning His Uniform for Charity

Samsung's double-agent codename game needs work.

How was this guy not the first person Apple questioned when they started their patent war with Samsung? Maybe he's the reason they're calling it off, because he forged a unity between the two sides as he worked together with Apple in harmony at the Apple store. Sam Sung has moved on to bigger and better screens things, so he's auctioning off his Apple business card and uniform for charity.

Unity. Prosperity. SDCC.

The Hunger Games won't have a panel at SDCC this year, but fans in attendance can still get a peek at Mockingjay: Part 1. The trailer will be introduced in San Diego by as-yet-unnamed cast members, but it won't be screened in Hall H.

Good Guy Samsung Sent Me a New Battery After Giving Me a Crappy One at SXSW

Hey! A company did a nice thing!

This isn't sponsored content or an ad. I'm just excited, surprised, and grateful that it happened. After giving me a dud of a battery at SXSW, Samsung mailed me a new one with some extras to make up for it. I complain online when companies screw me, so it's only fair I call one out when they do something great like this.

I can't wait for the pencil industry's responding attack!

Samsung released a second attack ad on Apple today, this time mocking their memorable "Pencil Commercial" for the iPad Air.

Samsung Calls Out Apple and Its Tiny Screens in Latest Ad Comparing the Note 3 to the iPhone 5S

The 5S looks almost adorable next to the Note 3. Like a cute lil' baby phone.

Often when companies try to crap on their competition it can seem childish and petty, but I think Samsung is pretty good at it--particularly when they're crapping on Apple like in this new ad comparing the Galaxy Note 3 to the iPhone 5S. It even has real basketballman LeBron James.
