xQc discussed the matter during a live stream on February 22, where he revealed a passionate bias toward Samsung’s products over Apple’s line of smart phones.
The streamer argued that Samsung’s high price points are justified due to their phones’ innovative features, while claiming that Apple puts out relatively similar products with new names upon each release.
“You get innovation, you get something new - a breath of fresh air,” xQc said of Samsung. “But with Apple… you get the same damn fucking trash phone!”
He went on to argue that Apple’s popularity stems from a ‘fashion-over-function’ philosophy, with buyers willing to bite the bullet on price to stay on top of a supposed trend.
“It’s okay to pay $1,500 for my Apple product,” he continued. “Because as Apple, I [have the] 1.96 juicer chip. And you don’t even know what the fuck that is, dude!”
xQc’s passionate argument in favor of Samsung came about after discussing the brand’s upcoming ‘Galaxy Fold’ smart phone, which opens and shuts like a touch-screen book or wallet.
While Samsung themselves have claimed that the Fold is for ‘early adopters’ over the average Joe, xQc feels that the brand is going to push another phone in its place - one that is likely more affordable, as the Fold clocks in at a whopping $1,980 at launch on April 26.
