Google Calls the iPhone a One-Note Piano in New Ad

Feb 17, 2016

Google wants to tout the versatility of Android phones, so they're contrasting them with the uniform iPhone line. In an ad aired during the Grammys, a pianist plays a traditional piano in a rousing composition that makes use of many of the instrument’s 88 keys. Then, he plays a second piano that’s been reengineered to play a single, grating note. You can be a virtuoso with an Android phone, Google seems to be saying, while the options with the iPhone are much more limited.

Google's argument that the iPhone is a one-trick pony may hold less water if Apple really unveils a 4-inch smartphone next month. The new device is rumored to be part of the company's mid-March event.
