Following the official release of the iPhone X, Samsung is out with a new ad for its Galaxy Note 8 flagship. The new ad slams the iPhone X's notch design, the lack of a headphone jack, and much more.
The advert is called 'Grow up with an upgrade to Galaxy,' reflects through several past iPhones years, mocking the different types of features and changes over the years.
According to 9to5Mac the iPhone 3GS is mocked for its lack of storage space, while the iPhone 5s is mocked for not supporting a stylus. For 2015, Samsung just shows a bunch of people standing in line in the rain, presumably for the iPhone 6s. For 2016, Samsung points out the iPhone for not being water-resistant.
This is an interesting choice seeing that the iPhone 7 was steer headed by Apple as being water-resistant and the device was found to withstand significant time in water.
Finally, Samsung mocks the iPhone 7 for its lack of a headphone jack and lack of support for wireless charging. Of course, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X now has wireless charging.
Ultimately, the iPhone user in the video ends up switching to Samsung's Galaxy Note 8. For one last shot at the iPhone, the now Galaxy Note 8 user walks past a line of people waiting for the iPhone X.
