Samsung’s samey marketing team is back with another ad for the new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge that again picks on the iPhone. This time, it’s for the lack of wireless charging, which comes built-in on the South Korean company’s latest devices.

Are you rich? Do you live in one of the world’s richest countries? If you answered “yes” to both of these questions, guess what: you probably don’t have an Android phone.
