We’re all familiar with two people exchanging insults. Normally, when things get out of hand, somebody tries to stop the two. This is the same case with HTC and Samsung. The two exchanged insults and LG stopped the two before things got out of hand.

HTC started it all when it announced the HTC One (to get more information on the HTC One click here) winning the 'Hottest phone of 2013' from Mobile Awards on Twitter (see HTC UK Twitter account by clicking here). It said, “Last night we won the 'Hottest phone of 2013' at the Mobile Awards.” Things then got heated up when it added, “Ouch Samsung Mobile UK.”

Samsung did not let this go. It said, “That's okay guys, our arms were full with the other three awards we took home last night. You can have that one!”

HTC didn’t want to let this go either. It wanted to get the last laugh by saying, “Samsung Mobile UK all those students you paid to write fake reviews of your competitors finally paid off. Pay rise, maybe?”

LG then got in between the two by posting a picture of Michael Winner saying, “Calm down dears! It's only a phone!”

We’re not sure why HTC thought it was right to provoke Samsung, but we’re relieved LG got in the middle of it all. Honestly, they should all just focus on making great products instead of exchanging insults.
