Cheeky New Ad From Apple Giving Samsung The Go-Ahead To Copy

It’s not the best kept secret that Samsung and Apple are not exactly best friends, with the latter often accusing the former of copying their products and even going so far as taking them to court to battle it out. Samsung’s response of course was that it was just Apple’s way of trying to take their biggest competitor in the phone market out of the way. 

Enter Apple’s new print ad, a clear dig at their rival...

In the past Apple have been criticized for how ethically green they are so the ad, promoting it’s green policy and use of renewable energy, has the headline;

”There are some ideas we want every company to copy”. 

Further highlighting the dig at their rivals with the snide;

“There’s one area where we actually encourage others to imitate us…” later on in the piece.

Meow Apple. 

And according to comparative sales of the two, you may be able to understand why Apple might want to cast some doubt about the integrity of Samsung in the hope of hindering their sales.

Phones 4U, told of just how popular the Samsung S5 was on its day of launch with sales almost double of its predecessor, the Galaxy S4. While in the US, the Galaxy S5 sold better on its day of launch than the iPhone 5s did on its weekend of release. 

Your move now Samsung.
