Enough of the Apple bashing Samsung!

To Samsung Mobile,

Dude, get a grip of your frigging products first before you freaking start bashing Apple.  Everyone who reads TheGeekyBeng knows that I am no Apple iOS fanboy, but really, for a brand whose atrocious battery life is classified as Rotten, you really have irked the hell out of TGB who is gonna issue you a challenge!

I will take my Lumia 1520, my Sony Xperia Z2 to compete with your BEST newest Device in terms of battery life and see who wins!
