Samsung has released a new ad encouraging iPhone users to upgrade to the Galaxy S9, but there are several holes in the video.
First and foremost, instead of comparing the two-month-old Galaxy S9 to the iPhone X, or even the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, the one-minute clip shows a woman becoming increasingly frustrated with her seemingly glacially slow iPhone 6, released in 2014, as she travels by plane to visit her sister.
Samsung acknowledges this fact with fine print that says “newer iPhone models are currently available,” but that doesn’t stop it from comparing its 2018 flagship with a nearly four year old iPhone model.
Seriously? they can’t make a video with an iPhone X or iPhone 8 (or 8 Plus or even a 7 or 7 Plus)?
