Samsung has always loved to make fun of its biggest competition, Apple. The two smartphone giants have been butting heads for years now, each biting back through ads or even court room drama. Although it’s been a while, Samsung has finally come out with its newest dig at the iPhone manufacturer.
In Samsung’s newest Ad, Growing Up, the mobile giant has a lot of fun at Apple’s expense.

The Galaxy Note creator soon makes fun of the things that many Apple users have come to dread and fear.
Making fun of Apple
First was a poke at Apple’s usage of 16GB storage space for many years, and with no external SD memory slots available.
In another scene, we find Apple’s small screen made fun of beside one of Samsung’s much larger phones.
Later, the ad makes use of Samsung’s water-resistant phones, showing an iPhone in a bowl of rice after an accident in water. Lastly was Apple’s newest contraption, the Dongle, an accessory necessary to listen to music and charge the phone at the same time.
Throughout the ad, you can also see the jokes around Apple’s diehard fans, as they wait in rain and snow for the company’s newest release.
The ad ends with Erik finally switching to Samsung, happily putting his diehard Apple ways behind him.

Samsung and Apple fanboys and girls have been at each other’s throats for years, with some incidents of actual physical fighting.
