Samsung Trolls Apple Over Lack of Innovation in Latest iPhone Lineup

Samsung today continued on with its ad campaign denigrating Apple devices, this time sharing a series of tweets highlighting Apple's lack of a foldable iPhone and pitting the iPhone 14 Pro's 48-megapixel camera against the Galaxy S22's 108-megapixel camera.

samsung anti apple ad
"What the Flip, Apple?" reads the first tweet, which points out the launch date of Samsung's first foldable device. The second tweet has the same first-to foldables theme, while the third notes that Samsung devices have had higher megapixel cameras for several years.


Samsung has been sharing anti-Apple ads since before the new iPhone 14 models were announced, and the company has a long history of insulting Apple devices in order to promote its own products. "Buckle up for Apple's latest launch," said an ad released in early September. "As you enter a world where heads will turn, must none in your direction. Where the highest resolution smartphone will be in someone else's pocket."

A second "Join the flip side" ad that came out on Thursday attempted to persuade ‌iPhone‌ users to swap to the Galaxy Flip by showing a diehard ‌iPhone‌ fan lusting over foldable technology.

Samsung has in the past mocked Apple design decisions such as the removal of the headphone jack only to follow suit and make the same move a few years later. Samsung has a leg up in this case as it was first to market with foldable devices and high-resolution cameras, but it will be interesting to see if there are ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ features that Samsung ends up adopting in the future.

And yet Apple sold more iPhones this morning than Samsung will sell Galaxies all year. :rolleyes:

Samsung ad campaigns seem aimed more at re-assuring their own customers rather than trying to gain new ones.

Wah... so sad for Samsung. Next up Samsung is going to mock Apple for something they will copy within one or two years. Headphone jack anyone?

Maybe in a year when Samsung has a SOC that outperforms the A13 from the iPhone 11, Apple can say "You're almost there. We've been pulling that level of performance for 4 years, 3 months and 2 days".

This is so sad and pathetic. Apple never even thinks about them and they can't stop with the jealousy. I really believe high school students run Samsung's marketing team.

I have not seen one person in every day life with a folding phone. Yet nearly everyone with iPhones….many people would rather have an iPhone 8 than a droid
