Samsung ridicules Apple fanboys in latest Galaxy Note8 ad

It’s been a while since we got a bit of bickering between phone manufacturers, but Samsung’s latest video ad comes to fill in that void. The Upgrade to Galaxy clip goes through ten years of iPhone ownership, pointing out many features that the Apple flagships lacked, compared to their Samsung rivals.

Some of the features that Samsung implemented way before Apple are the water resistance and wireless charging, seen first in the Samsung Galaxy S4 back in 2013. Big screens were part of the Galaxy portfolio with the launch of the Note series way before the iPhone 6 Plus, the first Apple flagship with a display diagonal over 5.

Surely enough, Samsung also makes fun of the lack of storage that was a constant trouble for Apple fanboys and the lack of 3.5mm audio jack that is now a standard across the new iPhone trio that arrived in September. And of course they mocked the new design of the iPhone X front panel where one went a notch too far with his haircut, if you’ll excuse the terrible pun.
