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?
