BLACKPINK is currently endorsed by Samsung, so being seen with an Apple iPhone, Samsung’s biggest competitor, is a pretty big deal. Yet, the girls have gotten into a couple funny situations recently while avoiding iPhones like the plague.
During the encore of their In Your Area Tour in LA, Jennie leaned down to take a selfie on a fan’s phone. Right before she took the phone she realized it was an iPhone and had to decline.

Jennie then had to become iPhone police for Jisoo, who seemed to forget she shouldn’t be seen with an iPhone.
Jisoo forgot that she's sponsored by Samsung and was holding iPhone. Look at Jennie reaction 😂 pic.twitter.com/sx3xG1J9tn

The fan uploaded his version of the video, and even though it’s only seven seconds long, its guaranteed to add 7 years to your lifespan.

Another lucky fan (most likely an Android user) was able to get this uninterrupted video of Jisoo and it’s probably the cutest video known to man.

Other BLINKs don’t want to risk it and are advising fellow concert goers to get a Samsung immediately.
My advice for everyone who's going to BLACKPINK's concert and having a VIP PASS, YOU NEED TO BUY A SAMSUNG RIGHT NOW. #BLACKPINKINYOURAREA

It seems Samsung only cares what phones the girls are seen with, but it doesn’t matter what phones they use personally. Jisoo’s personal phone is an iPhone, as seen in their mini series BLACKPINK Diaries when editors had to blur shots of her phone.
So far, neither Rosé nor Lisa have been caught with the enem- er, an iPhone. Rosé actually seems to be ahead of the game by using a personal Samsung phone to take selfies with James Cordon after their appearance on his show.
