Huawei CEO: Apple is ‘slipping,’ Galaxy S4 is a ‘so-so’ phone

Huawei CEO Interview Apple

Huawei’s chief executive Richard Yu apparently isn’t afraid to call out larger rivals as he dealt jabs to both Apple and Samsung in a recent interview with The Telegraph. While speaking about his company’s new Ascend P6, the world’s slimmest smartphone, Yu made sure to note the new handset’s superior build quality compared to the Galaxy S4. “We’re not made of plastic,” the CEO said. He continued, “Samsung, they have such huge money – if you invest in marketing and branding then people will always buy no matter how good the products are. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is just a so-so smartphone.” And when it came to Apple, the Huawei chief didn’t pull any punches there either. “In its latest update, Apple makes the phone extremely simple to use,” Yu said. “But if we are just learning from them we can’t catch up, because they are now slipping. We want to go higher than them.”
