Samsung U.K. and HTC U.K. battle on Twitter while LG plays peacekeeper

0. phoneArena 07 Jun 2013, 23:50 posted on

We wonder if Henry Kissinger would have been able to work out detente between Samsung U.K. and HTC U.K.; back in March, both sides attacked the other's flagship Android phone with Samsung tweeting that "Four is always better than One". HTC tweeted a response, "Plastic is not fantastic" and the battle continued on Friday...

But Samsung did indeed pay students for bad reviews on rival products. They deserve a little egg-on-face for that.

ppl was too dumb to continue supporting samsung. Even its been proven they cheat and manipulated the review. just like gsmarena, phonearena, etc.

they used to call apple fans as iship. perhaps they are the bigger ship now.

and HTC said it got an award, Samsung took the first jab with saying they let them have that one since Samsung took 3... didn't that make Samsung the childish one and thethird's comment also look childish?

the fact that HTC ignited this issue bout winning that award. Not being biased. I know both companies are dissing each other but I think UK's Samsung and HTC twitter holders are childish.

Because many of those defending Samsung are paid by Samsung. They were caught in Taiwan. And it is highly possible they are here right now defending the motherland so they could get paid!

Haha HTC clinging on to the paying off reviewers thing and they still just can't admit that their product would still be 3rd place or lower, even with all the marketing and bought off reviews in the world.

What they SHOULD be doing is directing all this energy at Nokia and Apple. You know, the two companies that keep taking shots at Android OEM's. Not bash each other when they're on the same platform selling the same core product.

This is not about "the same OS". These are 2 companies who are directly competing with one another and the only thing they have in common is that their UI sits on top of Android. Like it or not, each Android manufacturer is in competition with one another just like they are with Nokia and Apple. There competition amongst each other is the reason you get 1080p screens, quad & octa core processors, boom sound, s-pen, etc. I say, let them wipe the floor with one another as long as they keep pushing the boundaries in the hardware and software department. Looking at the tweets, there was nothing mean spirited or evil about any of them. Now paying for fake reviews is a different story which has already been owned up to.

You are naive and hilarious. You ever stop to think that this is just Taiwan crying wolf about one of their beloved companies. This is probably worse than the pentagon calling out ZTE and Huawei. This s**t has been going on for ages and HTC is the first to be a baby and whine about because they can't do anything else but snitch.

It's a bit sad that Samsung felt the need to shoot HTC down when they were only stating that they had won an award (which they did) It's irrelevant if Samsung won more or less. Of course they could also proudly tweet about the awards they had won without mentioning HTC at all. Extremely childish and trivial of a huge multinational company. That would be like BMW sneering at Mercedes that they had more awards at the What Car awards.

Why are all of you freaking out over this? I think they're just having some fun with each other, honestly. And Samsung did pay those students to bash HTC. Why are you people denying that?if it were the other way around, you guys would be blowing up about how HTC is horrible.
