Sony asks Siri about battery life on the new iPhones, suggests users to switch to Xperia
Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus (both announced hours ago) come with various improvements, including 3D Touch control, 12 MP rear cameras, 5 MP front-facing cameras, a new A9 processor, and 2 GB of RAM. However, some things haven't changed, and battery life seems to be one of them.

According to Apple, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus offer the same battery life performance as last year's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This means that, in most cases, users will have to charge the new iPhones on a daily basis.

Once Apple revealed details about the batteries of its new handsets, Sony thought it would be a good idea to take a jab at the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Using the same visuals that Apple used to invite the world to its event from earlier today, Sony is asking "Hey Siri, what about the battery life?", while reminding us that its latest smartphones - Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact, and Z5 Premium - all offer up to 2 days of battery life. This was done via a tweet (check out the source link below) that also contains a link to Sony's website, where iOS users who want to switch to an Xperia can find out more about how and why to do it.

Would you switch from iOS to a Sony Xperia because battery life on the new iPhones may not be that great? Let us know in the comments!

I would have bought the Z5 if it had a better processor.

I really like the green one, but I need to know if it EVER shuts down the camera because of heat. I once had the issue in Turkey with Z2 and it drove me mad. The snapdragon 810 resembles a real dragon in terms of heat... And ip68 won't make it any better for the heat to escape.

well they did a pretty good job with dual heat pipes for 810, btekt has this video where they've recorded 4k video with Z5 Premium for over 10mins and it just got warm :)

So, are the 2GB of RAM confirmed? Because by reading this article, one could think so.

Confirmed by who? I'm watching the keynote now, and it hasn't been spoken of.

At a different site, people were confusing 'twice the memory bw (due to lpddr3 -> lpddr4)' with 2GB RAM. It could still be 2GB though. We'll see!

Nope but I can confirm that its 1gb. If it was 2gb it would be the 2nd thing apple would mention after new cpu. So ye, Use some logic

Your logic is bad, apple dont brag about specifications, especialy when they sound old, like dual/triple core 2gb ram etc. The phone has 2gb ram

I thought Sony was the only OEM that doesn't mock others, apparently I was wrong :(

TBH Sony is the only OEM that is on par with Apple and I can see people switching from iPhone. Stylish, beautiful, long and solid software support, Z-smartphones are extremely fast as well.

I'm noticed those people in Instagram seems they're happy switching from iPhone to Xperia Z line-up

everybody seems to be in the dark with the RAM thing here,i thought there would be some PA staff at the key note asking if 6s has a 2 gig of ram.

i was even waiting all the keynotes about RAM and battery life. Apple is really nuts, there counter parts are going with loads of new futures and apple dont care a s**t about it. If i was not tied up with apple echo system i would have switched to Xperia Z5 premiun this year. How patetic it dosent even fit a decent battery whcih will lost all day!!

Haha, Sony taking a page out of the Samsung playbook! Good for them. If that marketing works for Sammy, then hopefully it will for Sony.
