Samsung offers a blueprint for the Apple iPhone 7 in latest jab at its rival

Samsung offers a blueprint for the Apple iPhone 7 in latest jab at its rival
Thanks to our loyal reader Alex, we have a copy of a local newspaper ad that Samsung ran for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. On the top of the ad is a "blueprint" for the Galaxy Note 4. On the bottom, the copy reads, "Dear Apple. Here's a headstart for the iPhone 7." Samsung has been feeling the heat ever since the Apple iPhone 6 Plus was released on September 19th. The manufacturer decided to move up the launch of its new high-end phablet in order to counter Apple's first phablet-sized iPhone.

We've seen Samsung take on Apple in the past with commercials that made fun of those who wait in line for the latest iPhone. Now, the #Bendgate issue has handed Samsung a whole new subject matter it can use. Back in 2010, when Antennagate plagued the Apple iPhone 4, it was Motorola that took the opportunity to hit Apple where it hurt.

With the Motorola DROID X soon to be released, the manufacturer ran an ad that made fun of a comment made by Steve Jobs. Jobs told Apple iPhone 4 owners that they were holding the phone wrong, causing an abrupt drop in signal strength. In Motorola's ad, the company mentioned the phone's dual antenna system that "allows you to hold the phone anyway you like."

You can check out the new newspaper ad from Samsung along with that classic Motorola ad, by clicking on the slideshow below.

Thanks for the tip, Alex!

Right wise just because their galaxy device is superior in specs but has sh*t software. They are no smarter than ish33p and that's the truth.

Because we aren't (s)heep. Here is why we aren't (s)heep. We don't make purchases based on what is popular, we purchase based on knowledge and need. We don't purchase based on price or recommendation. Android phones can get expensive, so if w buy one that is, we made a knowingly decision specifically. We don't purchase a phone because it matches our shoes, or favor dress or purse. We aren't yuppies with to much money to waste.

Are you under the impression profit is different depending on where the money is coming from? Plain and simple, money is money.

Why would you care if anyone talks about Apple's profits? You should be embarrassed the a company that makes endless amounts of money do not put it back into the company to make a phone that does not bend. No ifs ands and buts. A phone should not bend under any normal circumstances. Instead you accept the fact they give their customers an inferior product but brag about how much money they make. Which by the way they make, not you. In my world that is absolutely embarrassing. I would never let anyone take advantage of me like that and not only do nothing about it but defend it. Sorry but there is something a little misguided with that attitude.

Because they have better sale numbers? Better retail availability? They actually make their own stuff? Money isn't everything.

Yeah it's pretty obvious that people just get iphones because they don't know anything about phones so they just go for the trusted brand apple even though they are in no way high end but seemed to be priced that way.

Sammy should just think of their own innovations and beyond not from others. Ads already run out? Poor Sammy.. starts to rot.

They do, like the one handed mode that Apple copied (poorly) on the iPhone 6 plus.
