Apple has recently launched iPhone X aka iPhone 10 and Samsung like always has come up with a new ad that is mocking the new iPhone. Both the mobile giants are major rivals and have been following this ad-mocking ritual. Samsung has launched Galaxy Note 8 prior to iPhone X, however, the South Korean major waited just about time to launch the ad for Note 8 to tease Apple’s new iPhone 10.
The ad has been titled as ‘Growing up’ and the story it follows is a harsh take of Samsung over iPhone. The ad displays a story of a couple. The guy has been an iPhone user since 2007 but, the girl he is dating has been a loyal Galaxy Note series user. From 2007 to 2017, to exhibit the ten years of rivalry, Samsung made sure to display the helplessness of iPhone users with its poor battery, less competent hardware and various other specifications.
One won’t take much time to guess that Samsung has clearly implied that there Note series has been better and they have upgraded their standards with time. Samsung clearly knows how to take a bold take when it comes to mock their major rivals.
Here Is The Ad!
Did you notice how at last he upgrades to Samsung and looks relieved walking past that long queue for iPhone X? That is not at all subtle, however, it’s not the first time in the history of Samsung-Apple rivalry when an ad like this has been launched by Samsung. The company took a dig in the past when Apple launched iPhone 6 with the bigger display and better camera, Samsung launched an ad reminding its users that the company had been doing this before Apple.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 also comes with dual rear cameras with dual OIS, a 6.3-inch OLED full display with 18:9 aspect ratio and has a bigger battery than iPhone X. However, this new ad is less likely to impact the sales of iPhone as the first lot has already been sold out and people are eagerly waiting for the second lot.
Apple iPhone 10 starts with Rs 89,000 in India and costs you 1,02,000 for the 256GB variant.
