Sony trolls Apple's iPhone 6 announcement, says its Xperia smartphones are "better than bigger"

Sony trolls Apple's iPhone 6 announcement, says its Xperia smartphones are
A few hours ago, when Tim Cook announced Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, he presented them as being “bigger than bigger.” That’s certainly something that you’d expect to hear at an Apple announcement, and it’s the tagline that the Cupertino giant will be using for its new handsets from now on. It’s also something that the competition can try to poke fun at.

Almost immediately after Apple unveiled the two iPhone 6 models, Sony took to Twitter to suggest that its Xperia devices are “better than bigger” - obviously letting us know that it's not impressed with Apple's new iPhones. Sony has all the reasons in the world to remind us about its Xperias, because it, too, has two brand new flagship smartphones: the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact, both unveiled last week at IFA 2014. Sony’s “better than bigger” tweet includes a link to a webpage that encourages smartphone users to switch to an Xperia.

Just like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact have different sizes, but their internals are relatively similar. Obviously, the 4.6-inch Z3 Compact can be seen as a direct competitor to the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, while the 5.2-inch Z3 will be competing with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple still laughs to the bank though. You won't see Sony trolling about that now.

Z3 is the best flagship phone in 2014. Don't listen to those loser paid troll. I saw a lot of paid troll trolled on z3 article complaining about not having QHD display, but they "forgot" about galaxy alpha (their flagship phone price at €565 ($700 us dollor ) and they also "forgot" about alpha's 720p pentile display. And galaxy alpha have terrible battery life Lol,

The Z3 isn't much of an upgrade from the Z2, but it's still one of the best smartphone out there. Definitely much better than the new iToys!

Oh, yeah, 720p pentile amoled display is cutting edge technology.

poor viewing angles, terrible contrast, crap battery life, forgot already fankid?

Poor viewing angles? Terrible contrast? Crap battery life? Haha first things first, viewing angles and contrast are one of the best on an IPS Display for mobile. And battery life is far greater than the Galaxy s5. So take your Bs elsewhere

Z1s, Z, and Z Ultra all had pretty bad display. But Sony got it right since the Z2.

*Until Z2, and frankly the Z2's display doesn't has the wow factor of Galaxy S5's,

so infact you are trolling... you still have a same song of alpha although you mentioned in previous article that you are not trolling... why dont you talk about note 4 or even galaxy s5? just bcoz you will loose all your points of trolling?

I was seriously asking you how do you define a flagship phone, that's why i said those words. But alas i guess you misunderstood nevertheless. Everyone trolls. I have absolute no problem with any kind of trolling except paid internet trolling.

and I answered over there... let me copy/paste for you again... (this is what I am telling you, alpha seems like trolling on apple bcoz iphone is overly priced mid range phone, there is no excuse for it.... same, alpha is also overly priced mid range phone, no excuse for it... even screen is 4.6inch which is not samsung's way of 2014's flagship... No sd card expension which is again clearly not a samsung's way, instead iphone's way... and for your apetite of definition, there is no set definition bcoz apple has a mid range as flagship but still in common terms "the flagship device is the one which is fitted with the best components a manufacturer can offer".... which clearly alpha is not)

Why did you expect your name to be mentioned? He refered to several 'forgetful' people. Do you feel so special around Internet strangers that your name would just magically pop up? Elaborate comeback by the way.

Salut Florine! Bun articolul but the thing is while i am not a an Apple fan but a big Sony fan, until Sony releases its phones to all US major carriers, it can't say a word. To me Apple just became a bit better than before. And then it begs the i buy a 700 bucks Sony? or buy in on contract for 200? Well i would go for the plus if anything, so 300. Full price is not for premium phones anymore with all the choices that we do have but for mid to low range ones.
