Last week, we reported about a new Samsung ad where it took a dig at Apple over relatively slower LTE speeds on iPhone X when compared with the Galaxy S9. It seems like that was just the beginning as it has now released three new ads under the same Ingenius series. It goes without saying that each of these new ads takes mocks iPhone for their limitations in different areas.
The first ad is titled "Ingenius: Fast charger" which shows a potential buyer visiting the Apple Genius bar. She askes the Genius employee whether the iPhone X supports fast charging out of the box. To this, the employee replies that while it does support the same but one has to buy a USB Type-C to Lightning cable and the official fast charger separately to take benefits of it.
The second latest ad is aimed at the camera comparison between the iPhone X and Galaxy S9. He asks the employee whether the iPhone X has a better camera. In response, the employee questions whether the buyer has been following DxOMark scores which is where the Galaxy S9 ranks higher than iPhone X.
Lastly, there is an ad aimed at mocking the fact that one has to rely on dongles if they want to use their 3.5mm headphone earphones/headphones with the iPhone. It further mentions that if one wishes to charge their phone and listen to music at the same time, then they will need to go for a "double dongle". The ad ends with the punchline where the buyer replies, "That sounds explicit" to the double dongle thing.

This is quite a hard talk from Samsung in this battle. We have seen a few instances between the two before too!
Both have taken a dig at each other, if I remember correctly. And now again, I'm
wating to see what answer Apple has.
For the sake of competition, such ads are okay, though they shouldn't be so directly confronting the other.
Though one thing remains, whatever be the ad, loyalties hardly change, no matter what brand you use.
