Samsung Continues to Roast Apple in Latest Ingenius Ads

Samsung Continues to Roast Apple in Latest Ingenius Ads

Samsung has returned to its tried and true formula of pointing out all of Apple’s flaws that helped it first establish itself as a smartphone powerhouse. It started with “The Next Big Thing” campaign and it’s continuing with its new “Ingenius” ads that poke fun at Apple for its perceived shortcomings.

It just released three new ads focusing on the dongle, fast charger, and camera. The ads satirically use an Apple Genius that is explaining to customers the limitations of the iPhone.

The first ad highlights the need for a dongle if iPhone customers still want to continue using headphones with the 3.5mm jack. The second ad sees a customer question the Apple Genius why Apple doesn’t include the fast charger when Samsung does with the new Galaxy S9. And the last ad goes for the iPhone X camera using DxOMark’s ratings of cameras as the Galaxy S9 Plus earned a high rating (99) than the iPhone X (97).

OnePlus 5 has a frustrating bug when recording video

OnePlus 5 has a frustrating bug when recording video

It appears that the OnePlus 5 has a hidden talent, though we’re not sure it’s one you’re going to appreciate. According to a number of Reddit users, videos recorded in landscape mode on the handset are being rendered with inverted audio, which essentially means that sound captured using the microphone on the right of the device is being played through the left speaker and vice versa.

There’s some good news, though: OnePlus should be able to fix the glitch using a software update as the bug is apparently caused by a faulty line of code. When exactly the upgrade will arrive remains a mystery, but we’ve contacted the firm to find out and will update this post if we hear back. In the meantime, here’s a video of the bug in action.
