Galaxy Fold vs. Huawei Mate X vs iPhone: the ultimate foldable phones’ quest vs Apple’s legendary iPhone
Nike just did it again – the “dream crazier” campaign celebrates and revamps its JustDoIt slogan in a feminine way, 30 years after its debut Galaxy Fold vs. Huawei Mate X vs iPhone: the ultimate foldable phones’ quest vs Apple’s legendary iPhone
There they are, two bendable – or should we say foldable – mobile phones, launched within one weeks’ notice. Priced at premium level, they seem to be launched to create a positive halo effect to both Samsung and Huawei brands, and to overshadow Apple’s technological Iphone reign. Both foldable phones are intensely discussed on social media, showing that both brands experienced a noticeable launch and media outreach. But did they beat the eternal winner? What foldable phone had the lead?
Apple’s iPhone range grossed 2.2 million mentions in the last 7 days, compared to 1.2 million mentions for Samsung’s Galaxy range and 110,000 mentions for Huawei’s Mate range, clearly showing that Samsung and Apple are the only two real rivals in the mobile phone industry. Huawei seems to be a minor player.
On an engagement level, Samsung beat Apple’s iPhone by far, as the launch grossed 9.8 million engagements vs Apple’s 6.4 million engagements during the same period of time, which was – let’s be honest – without major Apple launch. Samsung’s folding phone was launched together with the new Samsung S10, empowered with K-Pop celebrity endorsement. This shows that in an innovation desert, a new folding phone gets major attention on social media, beating the giant during a short period of time.
Huawei’s Mate X reveal was less considered on the net on a world level: the Chinese electronics manufacturer’s bendable phone earned only 1.1 million engagements, which seems big but not relevant compared to the giants’ engagement levels for this new type of mass consumer good.
Posts with most engagements
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold movie (164,000 shares/likes, over 8 million views): the Verge announcing the launch date (35,100 shares/posts); the Tweet with the biggest impact was clearly a statement about the high price of the new phone (16,400 shares/likes).
Huawei’s Mate X had no major video reveal to showcase its launch, and the product reveal seemed to be accelerated due to Samsung’s reveal, so most of the outreaching posts were consumer or reviewer related. Consumer stating that Huawei’s phone was 5G compatible had spikes in engagements with 35,900 shares/likes and 2,2 million views and Huawei fans, like Japanese consumers’ posts, had 4,100 likes/shares.
Nike just does it again – the “dream crazier” campaign celebrates and revamps its JustDoIt slogan in a feminine way, 30 years after its debut
After a stormy February start, Nike released its new “Dream Crazier” ad during the 2019 Oscar broadcasting on Feb 24, celebrating female athletes in an emotional clip. The advertising, which is a sequel of the 2018 “Dream Crazy” campaign, highlights epic moments in women’s sports.
The brand itself grossed 551,600 mentions during the last two days, and 1,3 million engagements, and the slogan JustDoIt enjoyed a real revival: coming from zero mentions before the show, the baseline skyrocketed to a 12,000 mentions peak during the Oscars, consolidating 243,000 mentions and impressive 1,1 million engagements in the last two days.
Most relevant posts – the brand and its celebrity endorsement
The Nike brand post on Twitter got 603,100 shares/likes, and Serena William’s, as the ad’s lead, positive endorsement of the tweet was also greatly shared and liked (186,600 shares/likes).
The #justdoit hashtag got over 249,900 mentions during the last two days, compared to 16,600 for Nike during the same period, showing that hashtag lovers strongly embrace the brands’ claim.
Worldwide reach and gender
77.6% of the JustDoIt outreach was experienced in the US, showing that the brand has its biggest fans in the Unites States – and that the Oscars are still best enjoyed in the US.
62.5% of JustDoIt posts were published by women, underlining that Nike’s well targeted marketing towards ladies worked well.
