This morning Samsung uploaded a new TV ad to their USA YouTube channel taking a jab at iPhone owners, labelling them ‘wall huggers’. The hilarious ad depicts a typical scene found at airports where iPhone users are seen to be huddling around where any electrical outlet can be found to keep their device powered.
Meanwhile, Samsung touts their new power-saving mode and the option for a user-replaceable battery in their Galaxy S5 as advantages.
Check out the ad below:
Earlier this year, BlackBerry CEO John Chen called iPhone users “wall huggers” speaking at the Oasis Montgomery conference. The last time I checked, BlackBerry’s stock market cap was at $5.51 billion, versus Apple’s $567 billion.
When Apple releases their rumoured 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones this fall, Samsung’s battery and larger screen size ‘advantages’ will erode. I wonder what they’ll come up with next.
