Samsung’s unleashed its latest attack ad on Apple this morning as fans queued up online to pre-order the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The short ad tells iPhone lovers to switch to the Galaxy Note10 because it has one feature the new iPhones can’t match: Live Focus video.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ was faster that last-year’s iPhone XS Max in a speed test designed to test real-world use. Several improvements in the new Android model helped boost Samsung’s new flagship handset over the top.

Of course, Apple is about to introduce its own new flagship model, and comparing that to a just-released model will be a more fair test.
