The launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is a milestone for Apple, but it was also a chance for mobile companies to take a shot at the new iPhone for finally breaking the 4-inch barrier. Read their messages below.

Samsung

Samsung

In an image posted on its social media channels, Samsung quoted the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs when he mocked smartphones with large screens back in 2010. Jobs justified the iPhone 4’s 3.5-inch screen and criticized bigger rivals because “you can’t get your hand around it”. With the launch of the new iPhones, the Korean tech giant took the opportunity to promote their recently launched 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 4.

HTC

HTC made fun of the iPhone 6 as well. The Taiwanese company posted a photo on Twitter of the HTC One M8 beside a pixelated image of what is obviously the iPhone 6 and a caption that read “Bigger screen. Better performance. Elegant design. Welcome to the party #iPhone6.”

Sony

Realme Philippines

Sony also took to Twitter to take a shot at the new iPhones by posting an image of a tagline that says “Better than bigger”, which is actually an answer to the iPhone 6’s tagline “Bigger than bigger” suggesting that Sony’s Xperia flagship is better than the iPhone 6.

OnePlus

Oneplus

The OnePlus also joined in and posted an image on their Facebook page welcoming Apple to the “PLUS” family, which is to call out Apple for using the word “Plus” to identify its 5.5-inch iPhone 6. And to rub it in, the message also showed an image of the 5.5-inch “Flagship Killer” next to the iPhone 6 Plus.

ASUS

Asus

ASUS is not going to be left out and boasted about the ZenFone’s aggressive price tag against the expensive iPhone 6, showing that you can buy six ZenFones for the price of one iPhone 6. And so they ask, “Which 6 is better – Six ZenFones for the whole family or one apple for yourself?”

Having a larger, pricey, gadget phone such as iphone6 may be too much for most of us. I’m amazed how peoples’ responses are, “even for those trying hard to construct their sentences in English lol”, comparing this phone to any other devices/android in the market now. Before leaving a comment, make sure first that you really know what you’re talking about and that you have had experience using the device and android gadgets. There’s a whole lot of gadgets out there that might have a better specs. As from what I am seeing nowadays, most people are boasting on their “MAHAL” expensive gadgets and it has become a status quo for people who wanted to be “IN” or wanting to show that “MAYAMAN AKO”.

In my opinion, makers of the smartphones will not stop innovating their products until the customers are not satisfied with what they can have. I read a lot of comments about bashing the Apple Iphone 6. I realized that they’re right on some point that if you have the money to buy and the means to do, then go for it. But if you don’t have what it takes to afford it, then better canvas another phone that will fit your budget. We’ve been amused, amazed, startled and conquered by many android player in the market. How can we stick to a smartphone that has it all? Every time of the year they’ve been releasing new products, leaving the current product gone in the wind. There’s no stopping for those companies who wanted to make profit. But for us people, can we really follow the hype of buying good phones to be trendsetter in our own environment? I decided not to buy any smartphone now, it is because first I don’t have the money to afford even the lowest price that they’re offering. And secondly, I don’t have a stable job. That’s why I’m still using a Nokia N70. Hehehe

Those critisized apple iphone about the larger screen were afraid of being
That their phone ovetook them by apple. Steve Jobs is no longer the CEO of Apple. Naturally the new CEO make his own decision that Iphone can overtook other phones and also the IOS is the world advance operating system than other os cannot do same. Their are affaid now thay the new iphone came out with exitind design. Plus the apple watch that all watch now in the market are no match with those of apple product.

opinyon mo yan pero ang opinyon ko ay kung advance ang ios ibig sabihin ay nahigitan nya ang current windows os at mac os? most advance os? wag mo ng gayahin si steve job na namatay na nag-iwan ng salitang walang kasiguraduhan.

Sa isang board meeting bago mamatay si Steve Jobs…

Director 1: “Malapit namang mamatay yang si Steve Jobs…Hintayin na lang natin…Pagkatapos, implement natin yung mga ayaw niya…”

Director 2: “Ang tagal naman…Ang ganda kaya ng 5″ display na phone!”

Hahahahaha…

IOS as the world most advance OS? Tell it to the widely read Tech Magazine (Digit Magazine), which awarded the BlackBerry 10.2 OS as the best mobile OS. Keep in mind that the BB10 OS is only over a year compared to other OS(s).
An interesting read on how the study arrived to its conclusion.
Cheers to all!! …from my Z10

what’s great about this game is most players are sport and welcoming. i thought this will be more of a black propaganda, but most are not. this only shows that a game should only be fairly played. kudos!

Kelan pa naging mura ang Samsung? Mahal din sila koya at least with Apple you get a premium looking device. Pareho lang brainwashed ang Samsung and Apple fantards.

I’m still satisfied with my Nokia N-gage xD

i think what these companies are forgetting is that Apple isn’t just about who has the bigger screen or who has the better camera. Sure, this is probably the easiest to make fun of but do they realize that with all the announcements made yesterday, Apple is trying to be part of every aspect of our lives? With the health app, the new iOs, the iWatch, Apple Pay, Carplay, etc., Apple is seamlessly linking all parts of everyday living with all of their products, which is a bigger deal and a bigger sell than the stupid screen size.

You don’t get it. It’s not just about Apple increasing the screen size just like the competitors. It’s about INTEGRITY and having the balls to stick to what you said. How many more statements will Apple release that will eventually be proven BS and just a marketing hype.

Integrity? It’s not about making statements and sticking to them. It’s about putting the better product out there. Less you remember, it was Steve Jobs who made that statement. He’s gone, he’s not the one running the show anymore. Although I think that the Apple braintrust asks “would Steve approve of this?” everytime they release a new product. It’s business my friend. Times change, decisions change. You dont lose integrity over that when it’s just all about putting the better product out there.

bro, wala yan sa megapixel. Nasa sensor po iyan. (y). Check mo yung HTC one M8 na may 4MP lang pero nadali nila sa sensor.
