After the Italian Competition Authority fined Apple and Samsung for intentionally slowing down phones, Huawei seized the moment and trolled both of its direct rivals in a recent tweet.
We would never slow our phones down to force an upgrade. We’re proud our new #HuaweiMate20Pro is #BornFastStaysFast – just like every other phone in our range. #NeverSlowDown Learn more now > https://t.co/Fn1ADt5VBW pic.twitter.com/AJihfosqAM

It’s not the first time the company bragged about keeping its devices fast and responsive over time. During its Mate 20-series keynote, the company compared how its flagship phone’s speed fares against Samsung’s Galaxy Note9 and the iPhone XS Max over time. We don’t know how Huawei tested the Note9’s speed deterioration over the course of nine months since the device got out in August but that’s a whole another story.
Huawei also used the occasion to start new hashtags #BornFastStaysFast and #NeverSlowDown to promote its Mate 20 lineup. Only time will tell if the company will keep its word on that one.
