LG makes fun of Samsung for not offering the Galaxy Note5 in Europe

As you probably know by now, the Samsung Galaxy Note5 will not be available in Europe this year. In the continent, the manufacturer wants to focus on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. The move by Samsung was a surprising one, especially to those in Europe that were really looking forward to picking up the latest version of Sammy's high-end phablet.

LG Jordan decided to poke a bit of fun at Samsung. Turning to its Twitter account, the LG unit sent out a tweet containing a picture of the LG G4 with a calendar app on the screen. With the August 21st launch date of the Samsung Galaxy Note5 circled, the words "No Notes!" is printed for the 21st. That, of course, signifies Samsung's decision not to sell the Galaxy Note5 in Europe. LG Jordan writes on the tweet, "To everyone that marked a note on their calendar. Sorry. We'd never do that to you. #G4 TheWorld."

This isn't the first time that LG has taken to Twitter to rag on Samsung. The day after the infamous Ellen selfie was taken with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 during the 2014 Academy Awards telecast, LG sent out a tweet saying that with the rear controls on the LG G3, Ellen could have snapped the selfie herself had she used the LG flagship.

LG is hoping that some jilted European consumers decide to pick up the LG G4 instead of waiting for the Galaxy Note5 to be offered in the continent.

Thanks for the tip!

Stop playing with big dogs you LG if you really want to intimidate someone try Sony or HTC but you have no chance against Sammy. They will buy you and you won't even know.

Samsung should at least made it available on their website across Europe and just not provide networks with devices. Would have been enough to avoid negative press and would have been easier to meet initial demand, or lack of demand with fixed waiting times.

It is bad of samsung not to release the note in Europe but I'm thinking maybe they are testing to see if they can get away with no sd card slot & non removable battery, if sales are low they will add these to the rest of the world.?

Everyone said that Samsung will be forced to bring back micro sd slots and removable batteries into the Note 5 because taking these 2 options off the S6 will result in a disastrous sales for Samsung. Samsung went ahead and took the same rout with the S6, and what does that imply? That the vast of costumers outside the tech sites, didn't really care about these 2 lost features.

I am a diehard power user, i even touted the glory days of SD and removable battery as the prime reason Samsung dominates. But as the old saying goes, " There comes a time when adults must put away the childish things and be an adult". Even though we loved SD cards we must all admit that those things bogged down Samsung phones so much, ESPECIALLY when dealing with big files. I for one did not feel any need to complain, when it was confirmed that the SD card slot was removed in order to fully utilize the new DDR4 ram and the new tech memory its all i needed to hear. All this whining is just that. once all the other major OEMs follow suit(Which they will i promise you. Once they all have access to the new tech samsung has and they are early enough in their dev cycle) Sd cards will be a thing of the past. Cloud if already filling that storage need(Only need is more security) and that will soon replace the SD slot. And ill be honest, i bought multiple batteries for my note 4 edge. In the course of 8 months I used it, I swapped batteries when my phone was close to dying exactly 3 times. before that i never swapped a battery in my Sammy devices. to hell with it, keep BALLIN samsung

they are afraid their products won't sell well. so Samsung is playing safe now. imagine the loss of all those marketings and still couldn't get S6 to sell up to expectation. in my country, Samsung ads is everywhere.

is samsung fool?? no...they know that many will be pissed that they will not let it accessible in europe they done more than that...even if you buy it and import it to europe you can't use it...so they done it for stategy because most europe users didn't want to buy because of non removable battery... let's go to the past...many people said that touch wizz is s**t after using phone for 6 months and i said it too but i discovered that even when you flash the phone the decrease is always here so this is hardware decrease...so closing the phone back is the solution but samsung knows that they will not understand that until they use the phone(and they say reason is that they did not use s-pen but how samsung know that...they can't lol so it's not the true reason for sure)...so they found a genius issue...forcing a lot of them to use the note 5 even if they don't wanted to (after hearing the non removable back thing... psychologiy control lol : if you create a problem and create a solution people will love you so...when they'll release the note 5 in europe...many will be happy and will buy it even if they wanted removable battery and sd card reader in the near past...you will see that what i say is true in the near future...

The lg phone offers nothing that the note 5 as but Samsung offers the edge plus, a way. Better phone than The G4 if you not after a cheap crap sd card and removing battery in a cheap plastic case, how that working out for them.

Meek Mill-*Samsung* Pulls yearly profit report out of pocket Drake--*LG* begins to sweat while Samsung unfolds report paper *Samsung* reads Q4 sales from 2014($3.8 Billion operating profit) Samsung then slaps LG with the paper, drops mic, and leaves room. Numbers never lie

Karma what? LG isnt retarded enough to realise a new flagship phablet and not make it available in Europe. Actually no one is that much retarded as Samsung is.
