Nick Cannon tweets his love of Samsung Galaxy S6 camera – from his Apple iPhone

American actor, rapper, entrepreneur, record producer, and radio and television personality, Nick Cannon, has tweeted about his love for his new Samsung Galaxy S6’s camera.

Cannon exclaims, “The camera on this phone is insane!”

Yes, yes it is, Nick, because it’s an iPhone.

Cannon’s tweet – you guessed it – came from an Apple iPhone.

The Echofon for Twitter app, for one example, reveals the origins of tweets, in this case, “Twitter for iPhone.” Cannon is certainly not the first, nor is he likely the last, to be caught – see related articles below.

This is emblematic of Samsung’s slipshod approach to pretty much everything. Samsung’s company motto ought to be: “Details, schmetails! Hey, it looks kinda like an Apple device!”

People with money don’t use pretend iPhones, they have real iPhones.

  1. Brett, it depends on the Twitter client you’re using to read the tweets. Twitter knows which app was used to create the tweet. I believe Twitter used to show you that info on the web site, but they no longer do.

    I just pulled up @NickCannon’s tweet using Tweetbot, click Actions > View Details.
    Sure enough: “via Twitter for iPhone”.
    Oops!

    1. Congratulations, Fwhatever, you maintained your string of completely off-topic political postings on this forum. And you would somehow have everyone believe that you are ‘fair and balanced?’

      1. note: Fwhatever or whatever “it” was first, we have heard from “twenty something, then twenty something else” before, so just get used to it, we are stuck with drivel for the unforeseeable future
        don’t feed the trolls

        1. Drivel? No. Making the point that people who miss the obvious are stupid and/or driven by emotionalism? Yes. And are such people likely to be Hillary voters? Yes.

        1. Points for referencing Clinton’s statement on the Benghazi heroes she left to die. Too few people even know that she said that when questioned under oath. So much for Hillary caring about those on the front lines fighting terrorists.

    2. You don’t belong here. You add nothing to the discussion. You prove your stupidity by thinking you can influence anybody- people gonna vote who they want to vote for regardless of your preferences. Unless you’re just being a pathetic troll- obviously, you need to get a life. It’s too short as it is. Trust me.

    3. Compared to Scott Walker, a guy who couldn’t even graduate a private school – as a Republican, I am embarassed by all the idiots running on the tusk side that make Dan Quayle look like a brainiac, I’m definitely voting for Hillary. She can not only kick all their ***es but doesn’t think the Earth is 6,000 years old.

      1. So, you’re saying someone who couldn’t even graduate a private school, had the savvy to beat the Liberal Democrats in a purple state and the Unions with all their BIG money in an attempt to get him recalled and when that failed, only to fail again to get him to lose his second election. That Scott Walker?

        Go ahead and vote Hillary, she equates to a Samsung Galaxy S6 or as MDN likes to say, a pretend iPhone. Yep, vote for that pretend concerned politician who is the epitome of a 1%’er political elitist as she desperately tries to equate to the common folk talking about equal pay and doesn’t even drop a coin in the Chipolte tip jar! This brilliant (term used loosely) woman who requests $250,000.00 a speech is as fake as Obama Greek styrofoam columns! This woman, who requires the surrender of phones and recording devices from her small encounter groups and yet when the same request is placed upon her by a investigative government committee, surrender your computer server, she has the entire thing wiped clean, as the arrogant Above the Law lying twit that she is and her would be voters are. This pathetic door mat who is so eager for power in the political realm, who was on the Nixon Watergate investigative committee, until she was fired by the Democrats for lying and unethical behavior, and who Nixon had only erased 18 minutes, puts up with her philandering husband in order to ride his coattails to the White House! F this country if it is stupid enough to let that happen!

        As a Republican, yeah right, as a Republican, pfft.

      2. Son, you’re not a Republican. Come on. No-one is going to believe that obvious lie except for liberals who recite in their dreams that Republicans are dumb, Republicans are dumb, Republicans are dumb. You are using a standard attack line from the liberal playbook.

        If you were a Republican, you would be aware that Dan Quayle is no dummy. You’d be aware of the history behind the “potatoe” incident. You don’t. You’d know why Quayle was singled out for media attacks. You don’t know why. If you were a Republican, you’d know something about Hillary and her denial of responsibility in Benghazi. You don’t.

        You’re a lying troll, and that’s all that you are.

  2. things about the s6.

    Last year Samsung ran ads saying that the iPhone was bad because of two main reasons:
    1) they were ‘more bendable’
    2) they had non removable batteries. These were the Wall Hugger ads and they even had the ads stuck to power outlets in airports.

    TODAY:
    tests show that the S6 Edge bends and cracks easier than the iPhone. In fact it , according Square Trade the Gadget Insurer, leaves you with a ‘pocketful of glass’ unlike the iPhone were the glass stays intact. (Square Trade has no reason to lie as they insure iPhones so saying they are more durable when they are not increases their policy risks i.e loses them money)

    2) tests also show that the S6 has worse battery life than the LAST YEAR’s iPhone,

    (e.g: http://macdailynews.com/2015/04/16/zdnet-mobile-expert-samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-and-htc-one-m9-disappoint-back-to-apples-iphone-6-plus/ }

    significantly so. It has a smaller battery than the S5 but runs more intensive hardware. It also has non removable battery.

    SO FOLLOW THE LOGIC:
    Samsung said in their Wall Huger ads “Phones with low battery and non removable batteries — like the iPhone are Bad.” BUT the S6 has WORSE battery life and also a non removable battery…

    Also Samsung said the iPhone was Bad because it was bendable but the S6 actually breaks easier than the iPhone …

    so you can only conclude that as the S6 are worse in these things than the iPhone, and iPhone according to Samsung is bad, then the S6 is WORSE than Bad, i.e it’s SHIT bad. That’s from samsung’s own PUBLISHED and ADVERTISED reasoning.

    The ONLY OTHER explanation was Samsung was LYING in the first place in their ads about the evils of non removable batteries or low bend resistance …

    so Samsung fanboys which is it? The S6 is SHIT BAD or Samsung was lying in it’s Ads?

    if they were lying What else are they lying to you?
    LOL.

    1. Hey, was off Samsung Davewrite. They just realized that their sales problems were because they had not copied the iPhone enough, and thus decided to one up Apple by making the S6 MORE bendable (obviously a feature, right?) and saved space and weight by removing that pesky cover and removable battery thingy to simplify with a smaller, fixed battery.

      One step at a time; by 2024 Samsung will have fully copied the iPhone 6 Plus.

    1. Um, yeah, when he’s crowing about the photo quality he took using an iPhone. Not really “scandal” level, more like “pathetic paid hack” level.

        1. I’m fed up with these excuses…if you really want to be objective…just think why this thing never happens to people who post positives things about iPhone…simple because they are really using them…
