Samsung thinks iPhone users should grow up

Samsung iPhone X grow up ad

Dear iPhone users,

Do you feel like you haven’t grown up? Like you haven’t really stepped into the adult world and fulfilled your full potential? Maybe, or maybe not, but Samsung definitely thinks you can do better and in their latest witty jab at Apple, the company shows you just some of the things you’re missing out on over at Camp iOS.

This ad hilariously documents a “coming of age” story where things kick off with our main character all the way back in 2007 with the launch of the first iPhone. Then, it follows the main character through the years, through multiple iPhone upgrades and how many of them often came up short in several key features. Then, boy meets girl and “That’s a big phone” was what he said. She just giggled.

As the years went on, Samsung continued to point out some of the bigger flaws in Apple’s iPhone lineup like the lack of water resistance, the start of #donglelife, the lack of wireless charging, and even what seemed to be a light jab at the iPhone’s camera.

You could say that this makes Samsung look a little petty with how they drill down on specific features that the iPhone lacks but it is hard to deny how much of it is true. Plus, as a tech enthusiast, it’s easy to appreciate how smooth Samsung were with this jab, considering the sea of not-so-subtle ads by so many others.

Still, to be fair, Apple has definitely fixed quite a few of their shortcomings with the current-generation iPhone 8 and X. Water resistance? Check. Wireless charging? Check. Bigger phone? Check. Skinny bezels? Also check.

The only thing that’s really missing is the headphone jack but I wonder if teasing the lack of headphone jack is really a wise move. After all, we all know what happened to the last company that made the exclusion of a headphone jack such a big deal.

Fingers crossed that they keep it on their next wave of phones though, because I really like Mr. 3.5mm Headphone Jack.

Its pretty accurate and realistic.

People tend to buy new iPhones thinking it will be better because of all that marketing magic, but with time you realize that… its still the same phone. You spend lots of time talking about it but in the same time you really trying not to throw it away.

iPhone is not bad phone, but its 50% of actual phone and 50% of marketing that people REALLY want to belive and they try to hold it tight.

But its the same with Note8 its not perfect at all. It aim for totally different market, people who like gadgets and want to use as much features as possible.

Healthy person will never stick to just one brand, normal person will try different things and that why Apple users are always treated like… “special needs” people. Because they live in fake dream and dont want to evolve, try new things. Apple marketing is theirs air.

At the end force iPhone user to use some good android phone for month and it will gonna love it. And give Android user iPhone and it will love it to. But everyone will love it from different reasons, and that is the beauty of using different products. And that why fanboys of Apple or Android will never be treated like normal people, they just cant imagine using something different.

Did anyone notice the iPhone guy had the “notch” hairstyle? Pure humour gold!

    Luckily there’s a “notch”, otherwise hard to distinguish iPhone from the rests after losing the round home button.

Hahaha. Can't deny it though. Samsung does have a point (or many).

It's pitiful to see Samsung stooped so low just to sell their Galaxy products. But at least over the past years, the iPhones doesn't explode and banned from flights. They fail to see that other brand like the Pixel 2 also has no headphone jack, no SD card support, and to say the iPhone doesn't support Qi wireless charging at this time is just meh.

To all Samsung users, rejoice while it last. I'm still a fan of Pixel when it comes to Android.

I was actually hoping they would bash the missing headphone jack which means they will continue to include one.
