Samsung takes a shot at Apple after larger-screened iPhone models are unveiled

Samsung Mobile's Philippines crew sent out a tweet on Tuesday, making fun of Apple for increasing the size of the screen on the two iPhone models that were unveiled on Tuesday. In case you missed it for some reason, Apple introduced the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus yesterday. The Apple iPhone 5s, Apple iPhone 5c and Apple iPhone 5 all have 4 inch screens. All other iPhone models sport a 3.5 inch display...

No, the question is why did they attack Samsung over something they stole from someone else in the first place?

Exactly ! When Samsung does it becomes copy cat and when apple do that he says 'becoming more like android'. Such double standards

You're right I guess they're both copying but I still think Sammy is the bigger copier.

Are you aware Samsung basher that none of the iPhones you love so much would have existed without Samsungs help since Apple has been buying parts from Samsung all along. The A8 processor in the Iphone 6 and plus is manufactured by Samsung.

They are the only company that can take down Apple? LOL! Funny right there. That's why the S5 can't compete with the LG G3 and HTC One M8 in real world right? But don't worry cause this guy right here said Samsung is the only one who can take out Apple.

Wow. They REALLY like giving Apple free advertising. First they airred commercials reminding people of incoming larger iPhone, now made sure those who might be interested in a big ass screen iPhone but missed the keynote get the news. Good guy Samsung. (heh jk stupid sammy)

Kinda like all the pub Apple gave Samsung trying to sue them and Samsung turns around and has possibly their best year to date! Don't be mad cuz they are right! Only people in a coma didn't know Apple released a iPhone yesterday and Sammy is just trolling them!

Samsung has had their best year to date? I hope you're not talking about 2014 because they've been losing money like crazy this year. I don't get all this fanboyism, these companies don't have loyalty to you, why do people have loyalty to them? You're simply the people buying their products. The smart thing to do is look at each generation independently and choose the phone that works best for you. I haven't had a phone by the same manufacturer ever, because they always follow up a great phone with a dud (I.e. GS3 to GS4 and GS5,or HTC One M7 to One M8). Apple hasn't had the best flagship since the iPhone 4, and I don't see them turning it around anytime soon. But if you like a company and they drop a deuce for a product, don't defend it, you're only telling them that yes, you're too stupid to expect them to make quality products.

Now where is that article comparing specs of the ijoke 6 plus with the Note 4/Note Edge that concludes by saying that though the ijoke 6 plus has smaller screen, lower res, closed os, 1/3rd ram, non expandable memory, non swappable battery, not water proof, not dust proof.. It still stands it's ground & emerges the winner? Surprised that PA hasn't done that already.

Your mentality is still a used car salesman. Specs on phones have reached a peak.1334x750 should equal most 1920x1080 Androids, 3gb of RAM is necessary for a Ram heavy Touchwiz OS, microsd cards are the past as most Android apps are written for the phones storage rather than expandable storage, go ahead and place your S5 in water as you could damage it. Lastly closed OS. Don't you realize that Samsung makes it hard for you to flash ROMs.

1334x750 equals quad HD? You do get that the ppi "you can't see past X" is a misleading statement. The human eye and brain recognize millions of colours. In a drunk stupor you recognize several thousand shades of grey fading to black. Those colours represented in an image realism. The less colours represented, the less real an image looks. More ram is relative to something called multitasking and another thing called caching. While Apple won't speak of such regarding their iOS, they indeed to for all things OSX. Android is striving towards being as much a desktop OS as it is a mobile device OS. I hope you aren't confusing jailbreaking with something else. Oh you do realize Apple is still fighting with courts over your purchasing an iPhone NOT transfering ownership of that device to you? Yup the lovely folks at Apple are letting you rent that handset without the hassle of providing you with support to match. Imagine renting a car where you had to also cover maintenance costs...
