While Samsung Galaxy Note 4 seems superior in terms of its technical features, CNet reported that Samsung's ads are harming its reputation in U.S. Citing the Korea-based tech-giant's video ad, the report criticized that Samsung has not made its point by claiming the Note 4 is better than iPhone 6 plus in terms of screen and pen.
On the video ad, Samsung claims that their large screen is a "window to your productive world" and its stylus is not a pen but a "light saber." "Samsung's brand image in the US suffers from a split between some ads that have at their heart an excellent wit and some that have all the blandness of creation by worldwide committee."
Samsung is not alone in terms of critics as Apple also has its fair share of "gates." Design n Trend reported that both company has failed in terms of choosing the correct resolution for iPhone 6 plus and Galaxy Note 4. The two tech-giants boost their graphic performance too far thus "resulting problems along the way."
iPhone's latest flagship phone was also haunted by "bendgate" that rooted from the claims of Apple's users that 6 plus tend to bend when faced under a strong force. Though it was later proven that "70 - 110 pounds of force is required to deform and break the device."
Samsung Galaxy note 4, on the other has its own dilemma called "Gapgate." This defect is "characterized by a wide gap in the side metallic rim of the Galaxy Note 4." Users feared that this gap can be an entry point to water droplets or unwanted particles that can harm the phone's interior. On the other hand, Samsung claimed that the said gap "does not impact the functionality or quality of the Galaxy Note 4."
