Samsung’s new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 9, is a powerful device. It is probably the most powerful Android smartphone you can buy right now. It has great features too, and an amazing camera, a big battery, a big screen, a stylus to get your work done faster, and much more.
The Korean manufacturer has always poked fun at Apple when it releases a new smartphone. It’s not just Samsung who does it, but several other OEMs, including Google, have made fun of Apple’s devices at some point.
Now, as the Galaxy Note 9 is out and it gets some amazing features, and that S-Pen, Samsung has released two new ads that make fun of Apple. The company mocks the iPhone X in one ad, and the iPad Pro and Apple Pen in another. And, the ads are actually true, if you think about it. However, Samsung should probably just let the phone do all the marketing work for it. The ads don’t really talk about the Samsung phones much, and all it does is make fun of Apple.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 – New Ads
Samsung knows how to market its products, and its ads are usually very entertaining to watch. Sometimes, they are stupid, but still funny. The latest ads from Samsung are about the Galaxy S9 and the very new, Galaxy Note 9. The ads are all titled ‘Ingenius’, which is a direct dab at the Genius bar at Apple. You know, the staff who helps you with the product, in an Apple Store.
The two Galaxy Note 9 Ads are titled ‘Power’ and ‘Pen’ and there will be more. The first ad points out how both the iPhone X and the Galaxy Note 9 have face unlock. And yes, they both do, but the iPhone X FaceID is much more advanced and secure than the Face Unlock feature on the Note 9. The Ad also talks about the ability to FaceTime(video call) up to 32 people at the same time on the iPhone X. It also says how the Note 9 is much more powerful. Watch it below;
The second ad is about the S-Pen that comes with the Note 9. The latest S-Pen is much better than before and also has a button to control actions on the phone via Bluetooth. Apple also has the Apple Pencil, which only works with the iPad Pro. And that’s where Samsung makes fun of Apple, for having a stylus that won’t work with other products.
The Apple Pencil is bigger than the S-Pen, and also, the late Steve Jobs did once make fun of the stylus when introducing the iPhone. So, Apple is kind of not living up to itself. The ad is funny, check it out below;
Also, Apple sells the Apple Pencil as an accessory, which is not cool. Whereas, the Galaxy Note 9 comes with the S-Pen.
