The life of an iPhone owner is a truly miserable experience, according to the Android smartphone makers at Samsung.

Apple’s big Android rival put out a new ad today titled “Moving On” that attacks the iPhone for taking a few seconds to load a boarding pass and if you’re not careful you might totally get caught in the rain with one while waiting for an Uber.

Take a look at the sad life of an iPhone user:

The end of the ad makes a reference to Apple’s controversial decision to throttle CPU speeds on iPhones with older batteries. Apple says it added the feature so that iPhones don’t crash randomly when drawing too much power from a depleted battery that can’t support that much power. A number of class-action lawsuits have sprung up as a result.

Apple has offered iPhone owners a $29 battery replacement as a way to say sorry. iPhone owners can redeem the $29 battery swap offer at Apple stores throughout 2018.
