Samsung Mobile UK takes a few cheeky jabs at Apple and its Keynote

Samsung Mobile UK takes a few cheeky jabs at Apple and its Keynote

So, Apple's 2015 Keynote has come and gone and has left a number of device upgrades, extra Watch straps, a huge operating system update for the wearable and a brand-new OS for the new Apple TV, the iPad Pro, and, of course, the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Soon after the unveiling of the new Apple Pencil, Samsung Mobile UK reacted with a tweet, subtly reminding us that the advanced S Pen stylus has been around for quite a while now. However, it seems that's not the only tweet the company had in store.

In a following series of short messages, Samsung Mobile UK points out that the Galaxy S6 edge is a far prettier phone, claiming that Siri is at loss for words for it. Additionally, it reminds us that Sammy's flagship comes bundled with 6 months of free Google Play Music subscription service, which is twice as long as Apple Music's 3-month trial period. Then, it suggests that the Keynote may have frustrated some watchers (probably due to lack of exciting new updates? Not sure here) and those that find themselves suffering from Post Traumatic Key-Note Disorder should check out the Galaxy S6 edge. And it rounds it off (for now) with a “No one's reigning on our parade tonight”, which, seeing as there haven't been many major events in the mobile world today, is apparently implying that the iPhone 6s can't threaten the Galaxy S6 family.

What say you, readers – cheeky jabs or slapstick humor?

Considering Microsoft made office apps just for use with the new Apple pencil, I very much doubt it.

iPhone 6 was something you can call boring.. but 6s has some really nice things like its camera. Not sure if it will have the most detailed images (I'm satisfied with my Nexus 5 camera), but this live photos are great. I just can't take the industry on battery. I'd rather keep my N5 performance and have better battery life than have double the performance and same battery life.

Microsoft could not say anything. Because only non-battery, imbedded S-Pen(Wacom) matters so far. Long before Microsoft And two years ago Note Pro 12.2 ".... anyone?

The S-Pen isn't even as close to as good as the surface pen.

More like free advertising for Apple. Any publicity is good publicity. Apple isn't offending anyone in any ads, twitter or what so ever. Being the cool one who dont give a f**k what others think of you is the best answer ever and works flawlessly so far.

But they offend in courts, and business practices.

True,thats behind closed doors. They dont go publicly and offend anyone or its users. Samsung makes ads that make iPhone users look stupid which is a bad move. If I want your customers I wont make an add that makes them look stupid but an ad that makes my phone look better.

It's called S Pen, it doesn't need to charge and it's free! Apple's Pencil will get there, in around 5 years.

LOL nodes has been owned.... Problem with Apple people is they think their iPhones are the only phones in the world, so when the key-note comes out, they think they are the only ones with that technology...

Wow! what an update by Apple. 3D touch? its another gimmic(like retina display). Remember samsung brought air view 3 years ago? Simply talking the phone is outdated even the day it was launched. With this type of hardwares this phone should sell at not more than $150 dollar. But I am sure inspite of all there are lot of morons who will stand in line to get this crap.
