Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) bitter rival, Samsung Electronics (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF), has put out a series of advertisements claiming that iPhone 5s users are "wall huggers."

The idea here is that Apple's iPhone products have significantly lower battery lives than their Samsung Galaxy counterparts, meaning Samsung users spend less time looking for electrical outlets to charge their phones relative to Apple users. 

While it is true that Samsung products come packed with larger batteries and even replaceable batteries (a savvy user can replace an iPhone battery, but it's complicated), nothing in the world of engineering and technology comes without some sort of cost or compromise. 

Tech & Telecom analyst Jamal Carnette and technology specialist Ashraf Eassa chime in on Samsung's latest ads and discuss whether iPhone 6 users will be "wall huggers."

Leaked: Apple's next smart device (warning, it may shock you)
Apple recently recruited a secret-development "dream team" to guarantee its newest smart device was kept hidden from the public for as long as possible.

And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here!
