Shoaib Malik Uses an iPhone to Publicize Samsung S6 #Fail

Samsung is launching S6 and S6 Edge today in Pakistan through a launch event in Lahore where at least five celebrities — including Shoaib Malik (the cricketer) — will be showcased using Samsung S6.

These celebrities are likely to say a few praising words about S6 too, but it appears that at least one (if not more) of such celebrity is an iPhone lover.

Shoaib Malik, who was in news recently for calling Sania Mirza the Pride of Pakistan, uses an iPhone and he was in fact using an iPhone device to publicize Samsung’s event. It seems like Malik wasn’t aware that Twitter stamps all tweets with the name of the app used to send them.

As you would imagine, Shoaib Malik’s followers soon spotted that an Apple boy was forced (read paid) to praise Samsung. Things got a bit more awkward for Malik who dug himself into a deeper hole by saying that he was actually using a Samsung Galaxy S5.

This isn’t the first time a celebrity has used an iPhone to promote Samsung’s devices. Now we know celebrities are just mouthpieces for whoever pays them the most but clearly they aren’t the most tech savvy people.

When companies like Samsung are spending a ton to parade them around with their products, they really should keep a stricter track of what they say and how they say it.

    just like our cricketers promoting pepsi and coke, when they hardly ever consume it!

  • Nikama admi

    Maybe he Has two phones; Why we cant start thinking Positive as a nation.

    • bara na ban

      So (as you suggested) he had two phones, and he had to tweet through iPhone only and that too on stage of S6 launch? really?

  • Umer Kayani

    He is invited to participate in the event, and it is launching event. And this shows they are preferring samsung over iPhone. Till now he is using iPhone and he might get s6 when he checked it in the event. How can he post tweet from s6 before an event? I think there is nothing wrong. The tweet shows he is invited and the other view can be he will use samsung from now and he say goodbye to apple.

    • Saleha Khan

      strongly agree with u..

    • Ahmed Habib

      He has done nothing wrong, only because he is with ayesha “umar”?

      • Umer Kayani

        No. Leave her. Think how can he post before an event. If he did so, you all criticize that before an event he is using the phone. This shows he will use and prefer samsung over iPhone.

        • Ahmed Habib

          So, he is not allowed to post a tweet before launch from the item he is going to promote? He was unable to grab a trial version either? Then, yes, whatever he will speak will be only bunch of lies.

          So, it proves that, Fil Stars promoting creams and soaps never use them? So, they openly say I love this soap, it does that and that.

          So, the earning is jaez?

      • sibzz

        well he shouldnt have lied later when asked about model of his phone. simple as that

        • Ahmed Habib

          Yeah

  • well said admin

  • Kamran Yusuf

    This shouldn’t be a news really. Where are we going with this.

  • Ahmed Habib

    Sania Mirza flirting other tennis stars, Shoaib Malik flirting Pakistani stars, are they really married???

    Shoaid is always been a drama king, like Veena’s husband now joining Bollywood soon!

    Full of lies the stars are… nothing new!

    • Hasham

      what a douchebag you are. he is just posing for a picture with ayesha omer. where is he flirting? and since when does sania mirza flirt with other tennis stars? open your tiny miny mind and come out of your little shall. bongay

  • Khurram ShahzAd

    I do not expect this from propakistani. It is a serious platform. That is what celebrities are suppose to do. Promote something, regardless of they use it or not.

    • aamir7

      And what if they lie (when asked) about what they use? How should this sound to the brand they are promoting?

      • ProPakistani Reader

        You are totally wrong to make this story a news and drag it here on propakistani.pk. He is probably paid for the launch event but not anything else around his routine time.

        It is quite simple to understand, let’s say; I use an HP’s laptop but now I will prefer Dell after a week and I am excited to get on to it so I just tweeted that I am anxiously waiting for this week to pass on!

        What the hell wrong in it? And, I am sure and witness the increased number of irrelevant and useless stories at propakistan.pk which causes nothing more than frustration and unwillingness to read further.

        • regent

          Samsung employee?

          • ProPakistani Reader

            Surely not.

        • Guest 147

          The question still remains. what about the lie?

  • abid

    Aamir bhai you are too naughty … very good story by the way .. nice

    What’s the big deal? Do you think all those celebrities promoting QMobile are actually using them as well?

  • abdul rahman

    samsung ko chaiye tha k shoaib ko S6 free me detay ta k wo iphone chor kar s6 use karta or advertise karta

  • Ansab Majeed

    Wow. Is this what passes for tech news on this website? I’ve been an avid reader for almost 3 years now and lately, the quality of your content has been on a slow decline. Here’s a little constructive criticism: Try ACTUAL tech news. Try things that are ACTUALLY controversial. Try ANYTHING other than a dumb Paki celeb who didn’t know that the judgmental writers of Propakistani.pk were having a slow news day and were going to make a pointless post about him and his naivete, that has nothing to do with tech. For God’s sake. Pata nahi kya hougya hai tum logon ko. Ajeeb.

  • AmirTut

    Maybe he has converted to Samsung, or maybe he has two phones, oh no maybe he has too phones call the internet police and report the news to propakistani. He could have an Iphone and a Samsung. As I used to until I converted to Samsung and started using the Galaxy S5, and I will be upgrading to the S6 Edge 128GB in green colour once it comes on the market.
