Apple unveiled its next generation Smartphone in two variants this past Tuesday (September 9). These include the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. These two represent the best upgrade Apple has done since the first iPhone came out. Most other Smartphone manufacturers were not excited (as expected) with the iPhone 6 including one of Apple’s fierce competitor, Samsung.
Samsung took the rivalry further and their Philippines crew went ahead and sent out a tweet mocking Apple for increasing the screen of the iPhone. The tweet quotes what Steve Jobs said a few years ago regarding big screened Smartphones. He said, “No one is ever going to buy a big phone.” Samsung added this to the quote “Guess who surprised themselves and changed their minds.”
Samsung was probably right in mocking Apple as back in 2010 the company thought that Smartphones with big screens would never be popular. In case you missed it, Apple introduced a 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus. These are quite big compared to the iPhone 5, 5c and 5s that have 4-inch screens.
Its seems that Apple has come to its sense and decided to give consumers what they want. Apple was bound to get into the big screen league at some point given that the demand for these devices has been soaring. This is evident if you look at the sales figures devices from Samsung, LG and Sony are pulling.
