HTC and Samsung trade blows on Twitter, while LG plays the neutral
The bitter smartphone wars have gone up a notch, after HTCturned to its Twitter account to celebrate its victory at the Mobile Awards. HTChad just won the award for “Hottest Phone of 2013” and celebrated with a tongue-in-cheek tweet, calling out Samsung Mobile UK.
Now Samsung wasn’t about to back down from a challenge, replying that it already had its arms full with three other awards that it won on the night and that HTCcould keep that one.
Then just when you thought Samsung had come out on top, HTCstruck back with an aptly put response, saying that all of the students Samsung paid to write fake review of competitors had finally paid off and then ended its tweet with “Pay rise, maybe?”. Touche, HTC, touche.
But HTCand Samsung weren’t the only Android manufacturers having fun on Twitter, after LG put aside its national pride, and decided to play the neutral, posting a tweet telling both companies to calm down, because it’s only a phone. Sound advice from LG.
Both HTCand Samsung have been going through a rough patch in recent times, with many HTCExecutives leaving the company, and Samsung’s stock taking a plunge this week after analysts lowered their estimates on sales of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Let’s just hope that all OEMs can channel all of that creative energy into their future smartphones, instead of their fellow Android manufacturers.
Who came out on top, Samsung, LG or HTC? Let us know in the comments.
