    Samsung tried to crash Apple's iPhone 6s launch in London

    [INFO]As you probably already know, Apple today launched the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in various countries around the world. As always, fans gathered outside of Apple retail stores in order to be among the first to get their hands on the new iPhones.

    Samsung felt the need to remind Apple users (and smartphone users in general) that there are alternatives out there - thus, it sent out a few employees to try and crash the iPhone 6s launch event at Apple's flagship Regent Street store in London, UK. More exactly, Samsung employees were spotted carrying banners that read: "The iTch To Switch Got Bigger", promoting the Galaxy S6 edge+, a 5.7-inch high-end Android smartphone with a dual-curve display, which was recently released alongside the Galaxy Note5.

    We've no idea if any of the customers who went to Apple's flagship store in London to buy an iPhone 6s were persuaded by Samsung to make the switch (or at least to ponder it). In any case, it's always fun to see Samsung trying to fight Apple on all fronts, isn't it?

    Probably the best advertisement method they've ever employed honestly...or at least the one that garnered the most attention, given the enormous amount of people at the iPhone launch.

    Very weak. What's weaker is that they have a 6edge PLUS.

    They're ad campaign has gotten annoying honestly. At one time I thought it was kinda interesting to highlight the perceived flaws in your competition but when that's ALL you do...

    I wouldn't drop iPhone for Samsung. ANY device. The thing that I have found with mine is that phones are great until the first major OS update, then they become nearly unusable.
    I'm skipping Samsung this year. Don't know when or if I'll get another.
    But I KNOW I will upgrade this iPhone to iOS 10, and I KNOW it will work beautifully, and I KNOW I will get the iPhone 7 Plus.
    Samsung can do nothing to alter that.
