These ads have gotten Ace Scores of 653 and 645, respectively, and were recognized as Apple’s most successful iPhone ads so far this year, but Samsung’s “The Best of Phone and Tablet” Galaxy Note ad still doing best by beating iPhone 4S ads with a score of , 686 and shines as Best Ace Metrix Q1 2012 Ad.
“Apple’s ads for iPhone had been falling rather flat earlier in the year, all scoring below the Apple iPhone norm of 620. This new creative tack that uses likeable celebrities struck a chord with American viewers,” said Peter Daboll, CEO of Ace Metrix. “These ads performed very well, especially with younger women, who did not react as strongly to Apple’s more feature-focused ads from earlier in the year. Celebrity ads are risky, as many celebrities can be polarizing. In these latest ads, Apple has chosen wisely, using celebrities with broad appeal.”

However, Apple never tried to respond such kind of ads in the same language and style, the company succeeded to focus itself;f only on their own products rather than targeting its rivals’ products directly just like Samsung.
