Brand Jibes: That Moment Asus And LG Make Fun Of Apple’s Ugliest Invention!

For those who don’t know, earlier this week, Apple launched its ugliest invention ever, the official iPhone battery case –  a solution that gives you longer lasting batteries on your iPhone. However, instead of getting a warm reception, it got a lot of criticisms online  –  Forbes called it “an angry, ugly mess.” The Wall Street Journal called it “funny-looking” and “fairly unsightly,” and even Cult of Mac—a popular Apple fanboy website—called it “butt ugly.”

To add to these criticisms, LG and Asus have decided to latch onto Apple’s ugliest invention to promote their brand as well.

LG kicked off with a tweet showing its flagship LG V10 smartphone along with a text stating, “LG V10. No bumps. Just goosebumps

Whether you like or dislike their approach, you can’t deny the fact that it has gotten them awareness on popular platforms around the world FOR FREE. Brands in Nigeria can learn a thing or two  from this.

For those wondering what the moral of this strategy is, simple – One man’s downfall is another’s come up!

Creating history... One review at a time.

      … Apple is simply over rated, there is nothing special about their designs. They only copy other people’s design to their own taste…

      Nowadays, anything that a brand releases which can be made fun of, competitors will use that joke to their advantage. Didn’t the same thing happen few months ago? Forgotten the brands involved (could have been Apple again but can’t recall)

      LMAO, Asus & LG went intelligently brutal. That rejected Apple’s invention will even make sales in Nigeria, trust me. iPhone users here need it.

      The conpetition is getting really stiffy nobody likes apple dominance…but seriously its an ugly ass design and very pointless, i mean y couldnt they just add the extra battery to the phone battery and make it one giant MAh sized monster battery. This is just a way to rip off more cash from isheep followers
