Oscars Host Ellen DeGeneres Ditched Her Galaxy Note For An iPhone Backstage



Samsung may have flashed a bit of cash to get Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres to appear on-stage with a Galaxy Note, but it seems that DeGeneres ditched the device backstage, as she was spotted tweeting out selfies using an iPhone.

Maybe they’ll have to be even more de-generous next year when it comes to writing out checks.
