iPhone 6 Vs Nexus 4 from Android haters

The iPhone 6 reveal is barely a few hours old, but already we can see that there has been some viral activity from Android owners who cannot resist the opportunity to boast. One image in particular compares the iPhone 6 Vs Nexus 4, arguing that Android users have had the iPhone 6 features ‘for years’.

This image is now doing the rounds on Twitter and Facebook quicker than you can say ‘One more thing’. It shows the iPhone 6 Vs Nexus 4 specs side by side from an Android user’s point of view.

They list specs such as a 750p resolution on the iPhone 6, compared to a 760p resolution on the Nexus 4. They also highlight new NFC payments on the iPhone 6 with Apple pay, with NFC payments that the Nexus 4 already had two years ago.

There’s a whole list of other matching specs, with the emphasis being that the iPhone 6 is only just launching with these features that the Nexus 4 had in 2012.

As a final kick in the teeth, there is a sarcastic leaving message which goads Apple users with a glimpse of 2016 features on another new iPhone which include wireless charging, water resistance, IR Blasters and split-screen apps – features of course which are already available on Android.

The image also leaves a parting gift on offering iPhone 6 users help with any of their new features – by asking an Android user who has been using the same features for years.

Is this a clever piece of marketing warfare from the Android user base, or simply a case of listing facts? It will be interesting to see if Apple, Samsung or Google respond to this in an official capacity.

This image is igniting at the moment though so let us know what you think about it. Do you agree that the iPhone 6 specs are not strong enough compared to the best Android phones, or do you think it’s just a case of jealousy?

Been used both iPhone (on contract from sprint) and android phones. I do like android os due to the flexibility and ability to just universal connections with USB instead of the apple cable connections. I also but of course apple os is very simple and easy to use. I also do like the BYOD compatibility

I have iPhone 5S and Samsung S5. The Samsung is a company phone, btw. I have so much hard time using the Samsung as I have been using iOS ever since. After 3 months practices, I have to admit that I am a total Android fool and unable to use most of the function without issue. The smoothness is not there, the camera is unable to use when you need it and same as most apps, when you need it, it will keep loading or stalled. I need to take the Samsung to service the camera after 1 week but… Read more »

I love how the article uses the term ‘android haters’ – could technically mean both parties, will cough up a giggle, and stir the simmering pot of hate.

It’s a phone people. Find one you like and be done with it.

The comparison is not correct check the 1334x750p resolution of apple it has 326ppi while the nexus has 1280x760p it has 320ppi. So try to write down complete and accurate comparison. 😛

How many time do I have to say that specs are nothing when you compare it to Apple products. Let’s test the high ends devices with in a few weeks to see who wins.
Speed, gaming experience, camera, etc

I’ve owned both iOS and Android devices and I honestly can say that I prefer iOS. It’s for a lot of reasons that go beyond hardware specs, but to be honest, I’m perfectly content with my iPhone 5. It works perfectly fine for what I need and unless it blows up I won’t be upgrading.

The person who drafted the comparison did indeed cherry pick the points, but it does underpin a shift in the relative stance of apple vs android products. Apple used to lead the innovation, and did it brilliantly, while android device generally were playing catch-up. That has now reversed. There are a lot of strengths of the new iPhones, but there really isn’t anything offered that hadn’t generally been available from android alternatives for 1-2 years (other than strength of processor, but both systems generally maintain options there that are more than sufficient to handle contemporaneous demands). I am hopeful that… Read more »

I’m both iPhone and android user and a technician and all of these phone hypes are useless and is just for kids saying “my candy taste better than yours”. I teardown phones for inspections and for bloggers wanting to know whats inside of these phones contain. I had wished that Apple could have kept the square edges so even in my sleep I know I am holding an iPhone not an htc,samsung or any android round edged phone. Now I couldn’t tell unless i have to open my eyes. They have surrendered to the big and round trend. My kids… Read more »

Jealous is not a right word. That pictures just compared about features in iphone 6 and nexus 4 in terms of hardware. That’s a fact. If Apple release the iphone 6 with one or many new technology and features, you won’t see a picture like that. Hmm, I do more agree if that pictures was said “motivating”

Gosh darn it people shouldn’t get all giddy giddy about iPhone 6. Apple is a great company with an amazing OS, but what is up with the minute improvements? It’s like whenever I bump into an iPhone user, their friends most likely would say “oh wow can I borrow that iPhone?”. Yes it’s iconic and amusing at first, but why is it hyped so much that you wouldn’t even dare say “hey can I borrow your phone a bit?”. The answer is simple: people are enslaved by the iPhone. I mean cmon, I bet a big number of you Apple… Read more »

To each his own. If you want an iPhone then get it. But keep it to yourself!

iPhone users want more than just features. This comparison totally misses the point. It’s about the user experience. It’s about design. It’s about the product feeling like a natural extension of yourself. That’s why iPhone users are so passionate about their products. Slinging out new features just for the sake of flash or quantity will not identify with me. I want quality. I want excellence in workmanship and strong materials. I want value. I want balance between form and function, something that adheres to strong principles of design.

Jealousy? My wifes Windows Phone boasts more than I was able to take away from today’s reveal. Forget about not being worth the upgrade, only the most blinded Apple fans will walk away thinking we see a win in the win column with this release.
