Samsung really fires shots at Apple in its latest advert

The rivalry between Samsung and Apple is one of the biggest in the tech world, and the American company is hogging the limelight at the moment.

Apple’s latest flagship device, the iPhone X, has dominated headlines since its release late last week, and Samsung aren’t about to let it pass without comment.

The Korean giant put out a pretty brutal advert to mark the occasion.

The advert probably mocks Apple more than it promotes its own products, but Samsung’s marketing team certainly pulled no punches with that one. They definitely tried to point out every perceived flaw with Apple’s phones.

It was so thorough, in fact, that one guy’s haircut is even used to take shots at the new iPhone.

That guy’s hair definitely looks familiar.

The advert has been declared a “masterpiece” even by apparent Apple fans.

Although the comments under Samsung’s tweet have become a warzone.

It’s not the first time Samsung has used an advert to attack Apple, but its reignited the long battle between the fans of both companies.

Whatever side you’re on, it’s definitely entertaining.
