Samsung gets bashed in Motorola's most recent advertisement

Sometimes, OEMs go after one another to help boost sales. Usually, it's Samsung and Apple going after each other in advertisements but this time, Motorola pokes at the Galaxy S III in a recent Facebook advertisement.

OEMs go after one another in advertisements all the time. One popular marketing method is showing the opposition’s inferiority. Like if a device has a bigger screen, they’d show that their competition has smaller screens. That’s why Samsung always goes after Apple products. Motorola has decided to take some cheap shots at Samsung in a new ad.

You can see the ad above. It was posted on Motorola’s Facebook page 6 hours ago at the time of this writing. As you can see, Motorola is showing that their devices get faster download speeds on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. They do this by showing that Rovio’s Angry Birds were already downloaded on the RAZR HD while the Galaxy S III is at 60%.

Is that all Motorola has said about the Samsung Galaxy S III?

Nope, that’s just the beginning. On Motorola’s official webpage, they compare the RAZR HD to the Galaxy S III in several other areas. Included is battery life, protection, and design. What they don’t provide information on is where Samsung can get some Aloe Vera to soothe the burn.

Of course, Motorola phones have pitfalls they don’t talk about. Like no removable batteries, being available on only one carrier, and for the root users among us, locked bootloaders. Do these advertisements make the Motorola RAZR HD look better or is Moto just being petty?
