Even before the Galaxy S IV was announced, HTC was on Twitter readily talking smack about the impending Galaxy S IV announcement. HTC’s first jab at Samsung started with the retweet of Yves Le Jan’s now infamous “Toys R Us” tweet:
As soon as the actual phone was announced, the floodgates opened and HTC decided to pull an all-nighter by tweeting anything negative it could about the device.
But HTC didn’t just stop at Twitter to spread the hate. In an interview with BusinessInsider, HTC’s President Mike Woodward had some harsh words for Samsung. When asked about his thoughts on the Galaxy S IV, Woodward said, “It feels very iterative. It looks a lot like the Galaxy S III…We were pleased to see no innovation in the design itself.”
HTC seems to be very glad about the Galaxy S IV’s plastic design, as one of the main selling points of the new HTC One phone is its all aluminum chassis.
While HTC seems to be cooling off its Twitter account, expect to hear more rhetoric from HTC as the Galaxy S IV starts to become available to the public.
