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...

You both are so misinformed I almost didn't even bother to comment. 1) iPhone 6 Plus has 2GB of RAM (as far as websites are publishing) 2) 1334x750 does NOT equal the quality of 1080p on 4.7". Check the HTC M7 and iPhone 6 side by side and you'll notice right away 3) 3GB of RAM was necessary for multitasking such as multi window and multiple floating apps 4) Micro SD cards are even MORE relevant as Google is forcing flash memory, which isn't working if all OEMs are still offering SD card slots 5) My S5 survived rain today, a 5ft pool two weeks ago and a whole lot of water from the shower and still works flawless. Get that anti-IP67 rating out of your head and stop making lies 6) Closed OS? Are you dumb? You mean ROMS? It's not Samsung that does that, it's the US carriers that force the boot loaders (Verizon and AT&T). If you're talking about Exynos variants, then that's because there's no support. For Snapdragon variants, better believe it gets the most support of any phone on the market besides the Nexus line. This was fun to type. Next time, back up your statements with facts because it's annoying to see comments like yours filled with lies.

Steve Jobs was a idiot, signal loss....you are holding your iphone the wrong way! Nobody is going to buy a phone with bigger screens......Wrong!

That was a feature dammit! Apple couldn't get flip to silence right so the next best thing was a physical cut off. Not like they could have put a decorative toggle switch onto it without upping the cost of the handset.

Where's the Apple tweet, "We like gigantic plastic phones and that will never change" Guess who surprised themselves.

This is why I didn't like Steve Jobs. Instead of letting the market decide what they want, he decided what the market wanted. It's arrogant, and it's why us Android fanboys view Apple fanboys as pretentious snobs and hipsters.

News Flash: Apple just patented the "Chunky Bezel" and reserved the domain wwx.bezelicious.com! A new direction for Apple as Tim Cook was also quoted as saying, "Maybe we shouldn't have hired those designers from Goophone?"
