The war of the smartphones is ever raging and it is ever prominent with Samsung versus Apple’s line of mobile phones. In a new advertisement brought about by the South Korean tech company, they have tried to put a mobile phone (to which is an iPhone as painfully obvious as the eyes can see) to one of their wireless chargers. Now, for “some reason” this other smartphone doesn’t begin to charge on the wireless charging dock.
When people see the new advertisement, many will immediately think that the ad will obviously be “technically incorrect.” After all, it’s like putting a glove for the left hand on the right hand – it will somehow fit but it just won’t work. The ad placement was obviously meant for the South Korean technology company to throw a jab at Apple’s recently unveiled line of smartphones.
Samsung Throws Fun at Apple’s iPhones Being a Slave to Wall Chargers
While it is an awkward advertisement since the Samsung wireless chargers are really not meant for Apple’s iPhones, it is not the first time wherein the former tech company poked fun at the latter’s line of mobile phones. Just last year, Samsung poked fun at Apple by stating that the iPhones were “wall huggers.”
The advertisement also shows more than just poking fun at a smartphone line who could not charge with the help of a wall charger as there could be more to just that. Many would think that the ad placement is just a means to pour oil over a flame on a petty fight that has lasted for years. While the range of Galaxy phones do have a material advantage (wireless charging is indeed a major plus), the question is will the new ad affect Apple’s sales on their new iPhone line?
It’s not just with Samsung, there are other smartphone companies, like Sony, who have recently poked fun with Apple’s “technological advancements.” For instance, Sony just recently tweeted a picture of them asking Siri (Apple’s popular artificial intelligence) on “what about that battery life?” Sony’s powerful Z smartphone line, especially the Z3 and the upcoming Z5, boasts a large battery life which allows users to enjoy their mobile phones for up to 2 days on a single charge, or even more when Stamina Mode is turned on. So with all these poking fun at the new iPhones, how will Apple respond to all of these fooling around? Will they answer with their own advertisement or will they submit to the “Galaxists” jokes?
