Samsung vs HTC: Samsung cheats, or is it better?

5 years ago11 views

Samsung allegedly hired Taiwanese students to bash HTC products, like the HTC One X and Sensation XL, online while recommending its phones.

Taiwan's Fair Trade Commission began looking into the case after they received several complaints, no doubt from HTC, last week. The probe will look into whether Samsung engaged in false advertising. If found guilty Samsung could be fined up to NT$25 million (US$835,000).

Taiwanese blog TaiwanSamsungLeaks published documents that appear to show Samsung was recruiting students to write criticisms of HTC and praise Samsung anonymously on online forums.

Samsung Taiwan said that it had not received any notice from the FTC about the matter, but in a statement posted on the subsidiary's Facebook page, the company admitted that the incident did occur, but that it has stopped all marketing activities that involve posting under anonymous comments.

But is Samsung really to blame when it comes to HTC's quietly silent sales? Instead of whining, maybe HTC should improve its marketing and distribution. Or it should just copy other companies like Samsung did.
