T-Mobile’s Android-Powered Devices Eat the Apple iPhone [Sponsored]

YouTube Preview Image

Though the iPhone has been the Apple of countless eyes and ears for quite some time, T-Mobile’s 4G Android-Powered Smartphones are quickly streaming into view.

And these smartphones aren’t satisfied with just keeping up. Sure, the iPhone 4S is fast, sleek, competent and stylish, and many swooned at its release as they will at the next Apple product introduction. However, T-Mobile’s newest 4G smartphones are loaded with features sure to leave iPhone users feeling like they’ve got nothing more than a core.

T-Mobile’s max theoretical data download speed clocks in at a lightning quick 42 Mbps, compared to the iPhone’s max theoretical speed of 14.4 Mbps. (This is possible because of currently being America’s largest 4G network.)

Equipped with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S3 Processor that’s got a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S II boasts a 4.52” Super AMOLED Plus screen, blazing fast Internet downloading that puts your home PC to shame, Google Voice Search capabilities for a truly hands-free experience, and access to T-Mobile’s best plan ever: subscribers get two lines – just $49.99 each – with unlimited data, talk and text and up to 2GB of high-speed data.

Smitten by the Samsung Galaxy S II? Encourage others to take a bite: share the latest video touting its dynamic qualities.

    Not amusing, informative, accurate, or, frankly, good.  I think you’re selling the blog out pretty heavily here, and definitely lost some points with me.  Please don’t let these spam posts become a habit.

  • trevorsalienarms

    That was douche-chill inducing.

  • Gmoney

    no matter what T-Mo has it is not an Apple product.  To many that is enough to not even look.  Sad but true that technical superiority does not beat with consumer devices. 

    T-Mo has a rough time ahead but they sure have an amazing phone line.

    I remember how Verizon was ragging on the iPhone with its “Droid Does” commercials in late 2009 such as having a removable battery and expandable storage. All that quickly vanished the instant it got the iPhone. Funny how T-Mobile makes these ads but they secretly wish to get the phone themselves on their network so badly!

  • LionStone

    Definitely appreciate none of that pop up crap…thanks!

  • LionStone

    …”with unlimited data…and up to 2GB of high-speed data.”  huh?

    • Nerdy Desi

      “unlimited” always looks better in marketing. They just throttle you after you go over, no overages.

      • LionStone

        yea…I just think its funny…I should’ve followed with laughter.. :)

  • Lovedr81

    No more sponsored adds! I don’t wana have to find a new android site.

    Um, I think the readers of this blog already use Android. You don’t have to convince us. Nice try though.

  • GNEX(MOTOX)

    remember guys…droid life is pink… lol, maybe we should change to red?

  • Sirx

    I feel as if this ad would’ve been better targeted to old grandmothers and old blackberry users who don’t know any better than to the readers of this blog.  We’re not impressed by your razzle-dazzle adjectives and quirky video.

    Hell, we knew the specs of your phone before you did!

  • Ryan

    ahhhh……. come on guys  :smh:

    making that money i guess

    Kinda funny but any pot shot at Apple is OK in my book, just ask Hitler what he wants to do to Android!: http://youtu.be/GvPlAyTG4ik?hd=1

    I knew phandroid cheaped out and allowed sponsored posts (the worst firm of advertisong) but i thought droid life was better than that…it makes you appear biased and easipy swayed. I know you dont like tmobile and their 4G so dont post it! Please dont let this happen again, I’ve already had to remove phandroid from my bookmarks because of it – don’t let that happen to you…

      Droid-Life has had sponsored posts for a while, at least this one is marked [SPONSORED]

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      We turn down a lot of offers, just FYI, because the last thing we want to do is annoy the community. This one, we thought since it was Android vs. iPhone and a funny video, that it was acceptable.

      Also, you will never find those ridiculous pop up ads on our site that every other site seems to use when loaded. You will also never see those embedded text links that pop up with ads every time you hover over them.

      We try to keep these things minimal, so that you can skip over them easily.

      Definitely taking your feedback into account though. :)

      Next up, $2 convenience fee? Kidding!

        I would pay a $2 convenience fee to read droid-life.  For sho.

      • me

    Confused why a T-Mobile ad is on this site??? Have it go to Android-Life not Droid-Life…-1 FAIL!!!

    • Michael Forte

      I guess because it matches Droid Life’s colors?

      At first it seems stupid, but if you think about it…why wouldn’t T-mobile try to put ads on a website that is all Verizon users?  That being said, I’m a little irritated that the droid-life crew has decided to post an ad as an article…I really hate to say it, but now it feels like selling out.

      • Anonymous

        I hope tmobile realizes this is not exactly the easily swayed by a commercial group. They wont have any luck trying to convince this crowd…

      • TheAndroid1

        Who cares if they post an ad as an article.

        If you don’t want to click on it you don’t have to.
        They are nice enough to tell you it is sponsored right in the title.

        It makes money for the writers.  Plus it’s an entertaining ad, so why would you be irritated?

    • palomosan

      It’s not failed, it’s called making money to keep up the page.

  • Poooooooooooooooots

    Welcome to Droid-Life, sponsored by T-Mobile!

    Yikes.

  • JDizzle

    How is T-Mobile 4G faster than home internet? I have FiOS and T-Mobile can’t touch that.

    Confused by the “sponsored” post for T Mobile on a primarily Verizon-centric site…but everybody’s gotta pay bills :-)

    The video was funny, but I suspect it’s a bit too quirky for most people.

  • Ben

    Anyone else bothered by the fact that the iPhone guy looks like an Andy?

    • GNEX(MOTOX)

      i get what your saying, just really the color…
