New Samsung ad attacks Apple for 10 years of inferior iPhones

It’s been some time since Samsung mocked Apple with videos on the inferiority of the iPhone  — the exploding Note 7 set that argument back a fair amount — but the Korean firm has removed the gloves again with a new video released right after last week’s iPhone X launch. The gist of it is a […]
