The big tech new of this week was the Apple event which took place a couple of days ago in California. As to be expected, Apple unveiled their latest iPhone incarnation as the iPhone 6S. This was, along with the bigger sized variant, the iPhone 6S Plus. While they came with some notable upgrades from their predecessors, they did not exactly make for much interesting reading from the Android faithful. After all, much of the specs on offer are already widely available on mid-range devices, let alone flagship devices. Likewise, many of the features being touted are ones which you can find on Android devices already.
As a result and again, as to be expected, a few of the Android smartphone manufacturers took to various social media platforms to remind everyone that they were either their first with a feature or they are someone who does it better. Samsung were quick out of the door in releasing a tweet which seemed to clearly be aimed at the newly announced Android Pencil and its familiarity with Samsung’s S Pen. Then Sony were also seen tweeting about the battery life on offer with the iPhone. While not to be left out, even Huawei got in on the action and made note of how the newly launched Rose Gold version of the iPhone is not all Rose Gold…unlike their recently launched Mate S which sports the same color.
Well, that was not the only teasing that came Apple’s way as Samsung also released a new video yesterday which clearly seems to be aimed at the charging features of the iPhone. More specifically, the lack of them. Even more specifically, the lack of wireless charging on the iPhone, which is a feature that comes on all the new major Samsung devices of this year. The video which was entitled “It’s Not a Phone, It’s a Galaxy: Wireless Charging“, simply shows the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus both being placed on a wireless charger, while intermittently an iPhone is also placed on the same wireless charger and needless to say, fails to be charged.
