Nokia and HTC troll Samsung’s Galaxy S5 post launch

These days, companies often take potshots at rivals or troll one another through tweets and teaser or parody videos. The latest on tech companies' target is the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S5. It’s been less than 24 hours since the Galaxy S5 is launched, and its competitors HTC and Nokia have quickly tweeted out some jabs.


While Samsung's CEO was busy unveiling key features of the Galaxy S5, Nokia’s official Twitter account sent out a quirky tweet that suggested the Galaxy S5 is nothing new and doesn't stand out in the crowd. The tweet showed an image of a Nokia Lumia handset running Windows Phone imprinted with “Not the Samesung (sic)”, and the tweet went on to read “Stand out from the crowd.” Nokia who launched its Android phones at the event is likely to introduce its own Windows Phone flagship next month. It had earlier also taken to Twitter to poke fun at Sony's new camera lenses.

  Meanwhile, HTC put out quite a straightforward tweet stating, “Buyers remorse coming soon to S5 owners.” HTC also said, “Hope they are ready to be one-upped. Looks like, Samsung’s popularity doesn't leave it with too many friends in the tech world.



Samsung announced its flagship Galaxy S5 at the MWC 2014. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a 5.1-inch upgrade to the year older Galaxy S4 and sports a full HD screen with the same Super AMOLED panel. Samsung has included dust-proof and water-proof capabilities, along with the long-time rumoured finger-print sensor. It comes with a 16MP rear snapper and a 2.1MP front-facing camera.
